    Question Is it worth buying KOF2k for $199???

    I intended to buy it for $150 at therage.com but then the price was increased. Should I still go for the purchase?? You must know I'm not the richest person and not (yet) the greatest KOF fan. I would have gone for the $150 deal, but now? The fighter I really want is MOTW (tooooo expensive!) but would KOF2k still be a good choice for $199???
    Thanks ahead for all replies. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

    If you've got $150 for a KoF, make it '98. You can get a cherry '98 for that price EASY with a minimum of looking.

    '98 has the most characters anyway, giving you the most versatility.

    ...98 is the most balanced and the one with the best fighters


    yashiro or ramon?
    shermie or hinako?


    hmmmmmmm

    plus,there arent strikers in it


    so you know you're buying a fighting game and not a circus

    also,
    the fact that 98 is the best kof and the best 2d fighter ever doesnt hurt at all

    I heard most KOF fans are dearly in love with 98, thanks for the great responses and I chose NOT to buy 2k for $150, I will look for MOTW instead.

    A good decision. Some games are too expensive but MotW can be $400 if you just have some patience (a lot of people had scored it for that much last month).

    Thanks for the hope Evil, I'll keep looking. I am also looking into the DC version of Garou. By far not the same, but it might be ok.

    ok, 98 is a little superior to 2000, but 99 sucks ass.

    2K is 109871209837410923874x better than 99.

    I have all the kof games and 99 is so much greater than 2000 so is 98 and 94 but 2000 sucks ass
    By the way NEOGML please start of your sentances by using cap letters as you always seem to correct others!!!

    Does KoF2k really suck that bad compared to the other KoFers. I really liked KoF 99 on the PSX (which everybody dislikes even on the AES,MVS). There should be more clear screens of 2k to make a better picture. But Ill wait a little more for KoF2001 to be released. Price might go even more down <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

    Goddamnit!

    KOF2K is one of the best of the series. The reason people say it sucks is because they can't handle strikers because they fucking suck too much. If you want a little schoolage from GML himself, look at this thread to see how Ice_Burn got burned.

    If you can't deal with strikers, you just plain suck. It's one thing if you don't like using the strikers, but it's another if you can't use them or can't deal with them.

    And if 99/2K didn't use strikers... you idiots would just complain, bitch and whine about how it's just the same thing over and over.

    And Fran, don't even try to say they're unfair, cause you're wrong. <IMG SRC="smilies/veryangry.gif" border="0">

    As for Lee, please shut your hole. i don't correct "others", i just correct you, because you're a very very annoying person who posts in nearly every topic, adding useless, gramatically weak little quips, which are so goddamn unnecessary it's not even funny. You also give unsupported opinions, like the one 2 posts up from this one.

    Useless.

    its good.
    its a good fighter.
    the story line is interesting.
    the striker system is realized.
    and you have a tightened counter mode for
    canceling into supers.
    it is what 99 should have been.
    the only real bad factors is that some
    people find the backgrounds not up to par
    with the other games and the music as being
    more low key or bland.
    otherwise i think it is an excellent game.
    unfinished? yes.
    but good nonetheless.
    its not the best kof
    but its up there for me.
    im not sure where all this kof 2000 bashing
    comes from..
    150 for kof2000 is an excellent price.
    i also like the fact that it had scads of
    strikers from past SNK games.
    its almost like an SNK vs SNK kinda deal made by SNK <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">
    as the last kof made by SNK i think its pretty
    memoriable and well worth the purchase.

    Fran, I couldn't say it any better myself. Its pants. The striker system should stay in Marvel vs. Capcom. It was a nice try, but it's just not KoF-ey. There are too many problems and ugs with strikers. I like my KoF technical, and my capcom fighters to have that other crap.

    oh that is such fucking crap.

    Sorry, but it's the truth. you're saying that putting additional features and combo opprotunities makes the game less "technical"?

    my ass. if anything it adds more depth to gameplay, and it makes your opponent watch his/her ass more often than in the past.

    i played 98 for 1 straight fucking year back when i was an SFZ3 junkie. i played it on a fucking emu (yes, a fucking emu cause i was a little rommer as well. but don't tell me that's not playing the game... cause you know you're wrong). don't tell me i haven't played 98... don't you DARE.

    And whoever said 2K was the "pinnacle of 2D gaming"? you dreamt that up yourself. yes, it's one of my favorite games ever, but i never made that kind of statement. it isn't the best KOF, but it's one of the better ones.

    What i feel is even SADDER than this stupid argument is that i'm the only one who stands up for KOF2K when people i talk to on AIM can't get enough of this game and praise it like there's no fucking tomorrow...

    Here is what I say; Buy KOF 98 and KOF 2000. Each represent their respective Kof eras. 98 stands for the old school Kofs of 94-97, while 2K can stand up as the KOF of the new era.

    Or...buy 98, 99 on DC and get 2000 for your AES. Thats what I done and although KOF2000 has not arrived in the mail yet, I think I'll be happy, cause I'm not missing out. I can enjoy them all; good points, bad points, moot points.
