Box ArtKing of Fighters Dream Match 1999 arrives on the Dreamcast packed with lots of cool features and is complemented by engaging play. Right from the start of the game you have access to 38 playable characters. This total goes up to a whopping 51 when you include all of the different costume variations. And since the KOF DM99 roster consists of characters from all over the SNK universe, each combatant has a unique fighting style and appearance. The fighting system is based around "special" and "super special" moves. In a nutshell, you execute a preset number of special moves in order to unleash the fierce power of super specials. This intelligible combination system adds a level of strategy; for a fighting game, KOF DM99 has plenty of gameplay depth. Complementing the rich fighting system are several play modes including one-on-one fight, two-player versus mode, team battle, survival, and a standard practice mode. As 3-D fighters invade video gaming, 2-D brawlers are becoming passé, but most old-school fighting fans will want to give King of Fighters Dream Match 1999 a close look. --Sajed Ahmed Pros: Brilliantly designed fighters, with a realistic, yet unique, look Can connect with a NEOGEO Console also running KOF DM99 Electrifying opening sequence Abundance of special moves and combinations gives the gameplay a high learning curve Cons: Soundtrack is mostly bland, with only a few memorable tunes Despite being polygonal, the game's backgrounds look dated
