King of Fighters XIII: Global Match tweaks the online netcode to improve on a classic. The combat remains a highlight of the franchise and the visuals still look stunning. Unfortunately, SNK doesn’t add anything extra to the mix barring online upgrades. While I do wish they would have taken the opportunity to add more to celebrate the franchise, what’s on offer is definitely worth the price of admission.

The King of Fighters XIII Global Match is a very modest return of one of the best games in the franchise. Although it's a simple port that does the minimum to bring the experience to modern consoles, the foundation of the original video game is very solid and enjoyable.

As a complete game, The King of Fighters XIII: Global Match is exceptional and almost indefectible, but the justification of relaunching it with a remodeled online system using the best that is currently ends up proving to be a shot in the foot, with an unstable, incomplete result and full of choices, including aesthetic, questionable.

The King of Fighters XIII Global Match is a competent title by itself and it's worth having it in the library despite a few signs of age. Even though the online experience has some issues, it's interesting to see a game almost a decade old work so well with the right updates, managing to be dynamic and fun.

Even though The King of Fighters XIII: Global Match is, by and large, the same game originally released in 2011 for Xbox 360, with just a handful of technical improvements, that’s not exactly a bad thing. Granted, it suffers from having a particularly small roster (for KoF standards, that is), and its story mode is a waste of time, but it’s still a top-notch King of Fighters game that’s well worth your time if you want a brand new fighting game fix with some juicy rollback netcode.
