It's the umpteenth time it goes to $2.99.

I wonder if there'll still be more update or should I just wait for the online multiplayer version? (Like SF4 and SF4 Volt).

Fans of fighters need to pick this up if they still haven't. Best fighter on the iOS.

The quality of the actual gameplay tops that of Volt. Volt is a better game though solely because there's online multiplayer. I always have someone to play Bluetooth multiplayer with though, so it doesn't really affect me.

Want it, but honestly, I don't know what I'd do with it. There's no online multiplayer, right? I've never been one to play fighting games solo. That's just me. Love the KoF series, though.

i've been waiting for Street Fighters IV Volt to go on sale. how is this game compared to that? apart from the lack of online multiplayer.

Meanwhile I've heard nothing but bad things about Volt's online multiplayer anyway. Terrible lag and ragequitting, apparently.

I know it's the cool thing to poo-poo people playing fighting games single player, but my experience in multiplayer fighting games (not online) has either been me destroying my friends by timing and reflex or I fight someone really good and they just insta-win with some infinite combo they memorized. I think AI usually approximates a middle ground to that well enough.

I mean, if someone's going to play a game for a 15 minute session, why not play single player KOF, assuming you're a series fan? Seems like it's the abstract notion of "no, that's for two people" that's the barrier there.

I have both KoF and SF4 (never bought Volt because Iím not very interested in online mp, and I will not pay twice just to have it + Bluetooth multi is just fine for me). I have to say that KoF is way more fun than SF4. Fighting pace, great butter-smooth animations, fantastic combos just feel much better for me. I bought the game when it was on sale for $4.99 and never regretted it. Three bucks is really a steal.
