GamePro- "King of Fighters XIII is a title that every fighting game fan should take notice of. It's gorgeous and surprisingly accessible, yet challenging and deep for competitive play. There's no shortage of solo gameplay appeal, either: the characters are great, the story is intriguing, and there's a wealth of varied content to keep you playing.
There are a few issues, and the online isn't perfect, but it's clearly a game that's had a lot of love poured into it. SNK Playmore clearly took the criticisms surrounding KoFXII to heart, and used them to deliver a superb product in KoFXIII -- an example I hope more developers will follow. If you've been clamoring for a Street Fighter IV alternative, your new King has just arrived."
