We like classic games. We aren't obsessed with graphics since we give more importance to high playability and how we feel when we play them. However, King Fighter II, although it's inspired on classic arcade games like Street of Rage, it's far away from reaching its minimum standards of quality and playability.
The gameplay is basic: a great fighter has come to fight felony and robbery in the streets of the city. He will have to advanced through levels beating enemies, leveling up and grabbing items that he will need to complete missions. The premise is good, however, it has some important catches.
First off, a plot is necessary but the dialogues with NPC is too intrusive for an arcade action game. What's more, graphically there are some bugs and we're not talking about 2D graphics (we liked them) but objects that appear and disappear and this kind of issues. We've also noticed lag which is rare in this kind of games since don't need too many resources.
In a nutshell: the premise is good, the idea of bringing to Android classic gameplay too. However, the details matter and it seems they've been forgotten in this game. We hope the developer will focus on this issues and we'll be pleasant to better rate it.
