SNK Playmore has been through a lot this past few years. What used to be a veritable fighting game contender who went toe-to-toe with CAPCOM in the genre fizzled down to an utterly shameful disappointment when they released what was supposed to be a rebirth of The King of Fighters in the aptly named King of Fighters XII. Unfortunately, the title was broken in all sorts of ways. Most notable were the horrible online play, lack of stage and music variety, head-scratching character cast, and puzzling menus. Now, SNK has gathered their bearings and stepped back into the ring with the recently-released King of Fighters XIII. Boasting improved online, varied stage and music selection, DLC, and the return of many fan-favorites, does this title do the iconic series justice?
