Pros
+Has a fully fledged storyline in the form of a visual novel with different scenarios and routes filled with cutscenes in each.
+Healthy cast of characters from various King of Fighters games
+A lot of great content and different modes such as arcade,story,online,mission,etc
+A gallery mode which consists of music,artwork and cutscenes
+Allows you to customize character appearances colorwise
+Includes all characters which were originally dlc on console versions
+Some of the best sprites and backgrounds
+Great quality sound and music

Cons
-Missing classic playable characters such as Chang,Mary,Vanessa,etc but still appear in the storyline
-The final bosses can be unforgiving at times but we have faced worse in the past(Rugal)
-No lobby system
-No online training so youre stuck with versus
-Netcode could be better

Score = 8 / 10
Worth the money
