There's nothing better than grabbing your controller and mashing away at the buttons to pulverize your opponent into the ground. Recently SNK Playmore released a new version of their much played franchise, The King of Fighters (the game where men look like women who fight like men who like women who are men). Possibly taking hints from the very successful revamp of Street Fighter, SNK decided to try to bring one of their best games to next-gen consoles, in the shape of The King of Fighters XII. Unfortunately this game turns out to be a complete disappointment, which will certainly tempt hardcore fans to use their game discs as coasters."
