Quite nice IMO.

Can't wait for some real videos of this game in action.

True, true. It seems that they are a little more than goodfellas ;)

Anyway, nice intro. As we've seen in other photos the art is gonna be quite better than in KOF2001.

Does not seems bad, maybe a little lame with just avatars for all chara and almost nothing more.

The art is quite good at least! :)

But hey, Athena's new outfit really piss me off this year... :(

The art looks like shit. I hated it in 2K1 and I hate it even more now.

Best KoF Art was 99/2K and that's it. This new art is shit.

Jesus guys,
I'm happy a new KoF is coming out just like the rest of you but don't confuse that happiness with having to accept bad taste.

This art is too washed out for my taste. For once I'd like a bit more color depth instead of it looking like someone left an insert drying in the sun. <img src="graemlins/ohno.gif" border="0" alt="[Oh No]" />

I really like the art in 2K2 from what I've seen. We havent seen any concrete pictures with a good enough scan to really tell the ammount of color depth in the game. What you can plainly see so far is that it is leaps and bounds better than 2K1 (which I like very much).Dont confuse Your opinions with the rest of the world

Yeah yeah and don't be such a tool either.

Tell me what you like about that art so much.

Seriously, it looks like shit. As much as I've enjoyed KoF as a whole the art just went originally terrible back in 94/95, to slightly improved in 96/97, 98 the art was still bad but acceptable even tho the gameplay made up for this in spades.

KoF 99/2K Art style was fucking awesome, rich colors and solid character designs with good presentation even if KoF2K was still broken.

KoF 2K1 what the fuck is up with Hinaku's fucking eyes in her select pic. Jesus shit the art went from nice to what the hell?

2K2 The art i've seen so far looks even worse than before. This is supposed to be improved not made to look worse.

Don't confuse your opinion with blindness..

I agree with you on that part, but...

The art I've so far in 2K2 is pretty well done, they all have that serious pissed off look, which I like. And you can't say its drawn any worse than 2K1, because that art was complete shit. At least in 2K2 I can actually look at it with some degree of seriousness, and not laugh my ass off every time I pick Ralf or Yuri.

2000 had the best art. I'd rank 2002's art either 2nd or 3rd place. I'm mean, it doesn't give me a headache to look at, i'm just sayin' they shoulda stuck with 2000's.

@ bonus :
I agree the art style and the demos/endings
are great! (just as great as the game itself!)

but

kof 99? great art?
na! not really...
but everyone his own.

now look on the character select pic of 02!
you really mean that it looks worser than kof01's art??

sorry but are you blind?
there's no comparsion to the bad bad looking ingame
portraits of 01!

i mean kyo looks like kyo again, and not like kensou
or kim!
and terry....well he looks like himself again and not
like some nose-bear..

so artwise its still no new kof00, but WAY WAY better
than 01!

Yes really. Compared the the dated style I was used to in KoF 98 it was a serious vast improvement for the series in general.

Yes it does. They both equally look like shit even tho KoF 2K1's art is more shit than 2K2's

It's all about what 1st impressions are. This Art is bad. When I have to sit there are try not to squint and a character design for lack of good taste, there is a problem.

You forgot to mention the fact that Iori looks like FUCKING ELVIS. And what the fuck is up with his hair?!?!

Look at it man! It's like 3 miles off of his head you could land a 747 Jumbo Jet off that strip.
<img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[LOL]" />

I'm sorry man but this art looks like crap. When KoF 2K came out with this for the insert cover....

http://www.neo-geo.com/snk/carts/jap/kof2000.jpg

That's what the fuck I'm talking about!! This is fucking Art!!

From the Insert, to the Character Select pics, Music, and even the Broken Gameplay, This KoF fucking kicked ass.

Anything else I've played so far after it has done zero to keep my interest. KoF 2K1 plays decent but it's got some shitty issues with it overall that shows the game is a 1st test run for these guys.

If KoF2K2 plays well I'll be willing to forgive the shitty art if it's sacrificed for great gameplay.

If that sucks then this game goes below the totem pole of KoF's right next to 2K1.

Period.

HAHA YES, HE LOOKS LIKE ELVIS!
BUT
THIS IS NOT THE INGAME ARTWORK! YOU MIGHT KNOW THAT
THE GUY WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ARTWORK OF BURIKI
ONE ALSO DRAWED THE INGAME CHARACTER PORTRAITS OF KOF02.
AND THIS GUY HAS WHAT IT TAKES, UNLIKES THE ILLUSTRATOR
OF KOF01 WHO WAS RESPOSIBLE FOR THE 'OUTGAME' ARTWORKS..
ERGO FOR THIS LANDINGZONE IORI..
