It looks censored, like the modern ones

The sprites where the only good thing about the new ones

Why on earth would SNK turn their back on existing, gorgeous assets, just to make everything again? That makes zero bloody sense to me, am I missing something? :?

Time and Cost. It cost a lot to create one character for XII/XIII and took forever to create each character with HD (hand drawn?) sprites. So this is the quick way out. It looks bad though, I mean next to SFV and GGXrd it just really looks bad... I'll still get it probably if it actually plays well (as at the end of the day that's what its all about).

I won't pass judgement before I get my hands on it, but man - it looks like a budget game.

Good grief...this looks like a PS2 game...a Maximum Impact sequel even and those were baaaaad games.

Really, if it's going to be like this? They shouldn't even make it. Even last gen fighters such as Tekken Tag 2 and Virtua Fighter 5 will make a mess all over this :(

Yeah, fair enough I guess. We should be happy it's not another bloody rhythm game! :)

Looks better, but still clunky and lacking in a lot of animation

I still looks really rubbish imo. Also, is it just me or do the characters look seriously disconnected from the backgrounds? It just looks weird.

Yes I agree that the animation looks a bit dodgy. Will they be using the same formula that they used in Samurai Shodown? (or more particular Samurai Shodown Sen)

Still looks disappointing but hey, RETURNING CHARACTERS! Nice to see they've finally included Angel in a KOF game again.

It looks terrible why couldn't have gone the Guilty Gear Xrd-sign route with 3d graphic's that actually looks like cell shaded 2d graphic's.. Characters are terrible didn't realise the guy in white was Kyo looks nothing like him, and Cheng looks like a giant condom, Leona is the only character that looks pretty good and no Mai or Eiji either..

I wonder if it even gets a UK release

Some guys get to test it

Overall, I have really enjoyed playing KOFXIV at Playstation Experience. The more I played, the more I wanted to play. I was all smiles and feeling good about the potential of KOFXIV. It does have its few nuances that I don't like, but I feel those could be easily remedied. The graphics look better when played in person and when touched up and polished up. Most players I spoked to had overall positive impressions of the game. The first trailer made many bad first impressions, so KOFXIV might be an underdog sleeper hit because right now it's a diamond in the rough just waiting to become Q-carbon.
CLips and that

Is it turning around?
Its gone past looking really rough and its now into looking "Ok" at least that cancelling s**t from the last one is long gone
The char select screen looks same as usual, hope theres no DLC bollocks
It still looks a bit bland

It looks a bit better now to be fair. I think the graphics are the main sticking point for me because all of the characters (especially on the select screen) look plasticky and soaking wet for some reason. Weird.

Gameplay looks a lot more improved.

Well, XIII had DLC if I remember rightly. It was the 'flame' version of Iori and Mr Karate (possibly somebody else, I can't remember). Looks like they have given Iori his flames back in this game though.
