this is HEAVILY overdue but:
Whip: I miss her drop kick move and her gun. :ninja: Anyway, like Vanessa, I am glad that her animations and the animations of her whip were translated well to the 3D graphics.
Vanessa: They kept that animation (that one where she shakes both her hands in pain), so I am already in love. BUT, they also put the "infinite combo" of KOF 2002 as a special ? WOW !!! That was a great move of SNK and a step in the right way to introduce a new character to the 3D graphics.
Yamazaki: Like Whip, they removed his knife, nevertheless, he is still fun to play as, I loved his animations (especially in the "guillotine" special), also, he has two counter moves, one for physical damage and one for projectiles, that was clever.
Rock: From his awful appearance in Maximum Impact, Rock managed to shine in this version of KOF, he looks and feel super agile while still being powerful, truly feeling like a fusion of Terry and Geese.
