Critic Reviews for The King of Fighters XV

The King of Fighters XV still feels left in the past when it comes to its single player offerings, but what it lacks in ambition, it makes up in solid fundamentals and great netcode that make the online experience the best the series has ever seen.

There's still room for improvement but this is the best King Of Fighters has been for many years, with enough new features to please both veterans and newcomers.

King of Fighters XV isn't revolutionary, but it's a solid, feature-laden package with personality and style.

Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding them back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash.

King of Fighters XV marks an excellent return for the series, modernising it at nearly every turn. While we await a story that'll finally do justice to the characterful roster, it stakes a claim to SNK's past with an eye firmly on the future.

‎It is a clear improvement over version XIV and is positioned as one of the most complete and accessible games of the moment, without sacrificing its essence.‎

King of Fighters XV feels like a solid refinement of a lot of its predecessors, learning from their mistakes to become something altogether better here. It’s not perfect, it’s not easy to learn, and there are some characters missing that I feel are must-haves. However, a solid visual redesign, good netcode, original and returning music, a great collection of fighting mechanics, and a wide offering of tutorial and training tools make KOFXV feel like one of the strongest entries in the franchise yet. Where they go from here is anyone’s guess, but this feels like the standard for 2.5D KOF that King of Fighters XIV couldn’t quite reach and I’m glad SNK has finally cleared that bar.

A good sequel to the historic saga, a robust and fun fighting game, although still with clear room for improvement.
