Thunderbolt: "The King of Fighters Collection: The Orochi Saga is one of the best gaming compilations on the PS2. Period. It's got ports of the first five games of the series, showcasing the best and worst of SNK's greatest creations. The first two games aren't worth playing; even if they are part of the saga and essential to the progression of the story, there's no reason to indulge in them for the sake of gameplay. Instead, you'll likely spend your time mastering '96 through '98 and enjoying their unique offerings. While the last game is by far the most developed in terms of combat mechanics and technique, the other two have their charm with regards to presentation and boss fights. The problem is that, despite overflowing with quality, these games suffer from some lackluster porting; the controls are slightly off, the loading screens are abysmal, and the announcer is beyond help. But hey, at least there's a mind-blowing amount of bonus content. Besides, you get to play some of the best 2D fighting games ever made. It doesn't get much better than that."
