NGBC is a solid fighter overall. Unfortunately, its dated visuals and more low-key fighting engine might turn off newcomers, and the game doesn’t quite have the depth of more specialized SNK series like King of Fighters. Still, at a $20 MSRP, it’s an attractive purchase. If you’re an SNK fan, NGBC is a must-buy - but it still might be worth consideration even if you’re just a casual 2D fighter.
