Well I am glad we got one of our first "reveiws" here on KOF 2000; I was wanting to know how good it is or is not. Man, that must one helluva arcade they got up there in Boston, the games they got on those MVS cabinets alone is enough to make a neo fan salivate. At least now I dont think I will have any worries when I plop down the $300 or more for KOF 2000 from NCS.

Well after awhile of playing KoF 2K also I have to agree with most of Ukyo's statment expect the balance issue. Overall control, response and playability is what I expected from SNK for a good game. My only issue is this, I don't know about most players out there but it is too damn EASY to whip out 100% combos! Hell, The BS I pulled on some scrubs with Shingo, Kim, & Kyo made me laugh. The whole time I was going, 'Damn this cheesy crap should not be this easy'. Overall tho I have enjoyed the game a lot and will most 100% own this baby on dec 21st. Oh and as far as Mai's Bounce goes, Nobody here had played her so I'm guessing if the bounce was gone, it might have just been censored out by a dip switch on the arcade unit. I guess I'll havta doublecheck when I go play again. ^_^

There were these two Asian kids playing KOF 2000 along with me and like ten other people and they would switch off depending on who was currently fighting on there team of four...One of the kids kept kicking all our asses around with Choi Bounge!LOL. It was rediculous! They were all laughing at us in Cantonese...It was hilarious! I Could just imagine what they were saying!

I dont believe that it was dipswitch sensor ship because the blood was still on...I didnt think that you could censor the bounce and still keep the blood...

I would hate to think they would take the bounce out of Mai, especially considering that this game is supposed to be the "pinnacle" of the series.

Hehehehehehe.. well, I'm glad to see that Ukyo has managed to find the Good Time Emporium with no problems! Just be nice enough to not kill me too fast if you happen to see me there one weekend playing the game. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

I've only had the chance to play KOF2000 a couple of times, but from what I've seen I was satisfied. Even with the concept of having the strikers come out at anytime, I was still able to do a lot of things pretty well... and to my enjoyment, I've found tha Athena has been returned to almost '98 strength! http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I'm not sure what kind of FAQ I will do on this KOF... when I finally get the home cart in December I'll be able to make that decision.
