When we want to review a fighting game, we turn to the pros. Specifically, Daniel "Clockw0rk" Maniago, pro gamer and frequent guest on our own web series, Fighting Words. Clockw0rk got his skilled hands on King Of Fighters 13 and was impressed with the latest edition of this venerable combat franchise, writing:
"King of Fighters XIII aims to restore the franchise’s former glory and definitely succeeds in this undertaking. Gamers looking for a traditional, fast-paced 2D fighting game need look no further, as KOF 13 is a great addition to the series for both veterans of KOF and players entering the series for the first time. This new release has reinvigorated the KOF community at large, and the game is expected to see a wide range of competitive play both online and offline in both local and major tournaments. We are in a “golden age” of fighting games as the year comes to an end, and KOF XIII does its part in making gamers feel privileged to be a part of it."
