King of Fighters Neowave review

  • Massive Xbox Live tourneys
  • Customizable costumes
  • Low, low price
  • Mishmash of 2D and 3D art
  • Annoying soundtrack
  • How many KOFs does Xbox need?

The arcade technology demo that is Neowave gets a boost from nitpicky customizable elements (repaint your fighter's outfit, if you like) and a few gameplay additions such as Heat Mode (extra damage on command, but at the expense of your health bar). There's also an online tournament mode that supports 128 players. If you have 127 friends who also hunger for 2D fighters trapped in a 3D world, perhaps you can all play Neowave together. You won't have to worry about the rest of us interfering.
