DualShockers Writes:" The King of Fighters XII displeased many series fans with its severe deficit of characters, features and functional online play. That entry branded an ugly stain onto the series’ long and storied history and it made potential fans think twice about picking up any future games with the KOF name on them. This time KOF is back with a vengeance and it wears the Atlus seal of approval. The King of Fighters XIII would have to be a complete overhaul from XII in order to be worth the price of admission. So, does it fail miserably or succeed gloriously?"
