WHAT CRITICS HAVE SAID

The offline modes are plentiful and fun, while online is actually handled pretty well. It’s lean on bells and whistles but delivers a pretty smooth experience.” Game Over Online

Raw and beautiful Versus Fighting, here it is! KoF XIII gives its pride back to the series. But it sacrifices some accessibility in favor of this new richness, even though it includes some tutorial modes that are well-crafted. But if you have time and motivation to spare in order to dive into it, this episode is a really good one, even though it still doesn’t come near a Blazblue or SFIV in terms of online play.” Gameblog.fr

The King of Fighters XIII is an awesome fighting game. The fast paced fights granted by the deep combat system are both technical and entertaining, and the gorgeous graphics and sounds are the final touch for a perfect fighting experience.” Eurogamer Italy

SNK has proven with King of Fighters XIII that it cares about the fans. Nearly every bit of negative feedback about the last game has been addressed here, resulting in distilled fan service in disc form. Devout King of Fighters fans left wanting last time won’t have much to complain about here. And while the tutorial and missions mode offers some guidance for casual players, I can’t recommend this over other superior fighters on the market.” Game Informer
