King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match

KOF2002UM was released 2/27/2015 for PC! I myself have put many hours of vanilla kof 2002 in on GGPO, so this is definitely one of my favorite games. However, can I really recommend the steam release of KOF 2002 Unlimited match?

The King of Fighters 2002 “Unlimited Match” sports a whopping 66 playable characters, although a few are clones with different move sets. The cast has diverse move sets and play styles, so you should be able to find characters that fit your style, be that rush-down, turtle, mix-up, or zoning. If you’re not familiar with king of fighters 2002, it uses the 3 vs 3 team format, with some life regen between rounds. It’s a 4 button fighter, some characters dash, and most characters run. There is no air blocking, and your meter can be used in a lot of ways other than supers.

As for the steam edition, I’d say it’s pretty good. The game has some clunky menus, but that’s not so important. Within the menus you’ll find the typical fighting game modes such as practice, arcade, challenge, and online. The online play, which is probably the most important feature, seems to be pretty solid. Playing with a friend who’s ping was bouncing between 180ms-210ms, the matches did not slow down at all, and only had 3-4 frames of delay. 3-4  delay at 200ms is pretty damn good for a non rollback(ggpo) based netcode.

The cheapest place you can get a Steam key is from Kinguin, currently $8.31

  1. kof 2002 is one of the best ( if not the best) fighting games ever made, too bad it didnt got a remake, or balance patchs, or anything.
