Well I'm glad Jubei lost... fucking worst over-powered pos character SNK ever created. Ruins FFS for me.
Ha, I hear that - Big Bear with his crazy amount of invincibility on the start-up frames on most of his moves isn't much better, though. The game is pretty jank all around, but still one of my favorites as a whole package. Glad to see they're still running tournaments on this game. Haven't seen much buzz in a while.

I'm glad to see this game still has a scene around it.


I agree, its really neat and makes it not feel as though older fighters arent worth putting some time and skill into today just because theres another iteration, especially with SNK stuff since there are so many on the Neo. Particularly, I love playing KoF 95 and 96. I know the scene for them is either non existent or not even close to 98 and 2k2, but I also am of the belief that practicing in any fighter in general, truly trying to get skilled even at an "obsolescent" fighter, gives you valuable experience as a gamer that carries over into virtually any other fighter, older, newer, or otherwise.

Kim's far more overpowered in this than Jubei. It's no surprise Jubei lost to a Kim player, Kim's won a lot of their World Cup tournaments. Air divekick gives him so much more freedom compared to any other character in terms of how he can go on offense.

I don't think anyone would deny that this game is just broke all the way around.
Still fun to play & stirs up so many memories!

I need to start learning the ways of the Viccom president.

Jubei is a twat. The CPU AI is almost as bad as Rugal in KoF - an answer for everything. I can beat Rugal, I can beat Kim... Jubei is just a cunt of a character.

There's a reason SNK never used him again.

CPU Jubei's a pussy when you hit him first. Even in Level-8.

It's been a while since I've done a whole playthrough, but he's no match for my trustworthy Joe Higashi.

I can beat Jubei easily with Mai in Fatal Fury Special haven't tried against him in level 8 yet.
I have a bitch beating Big Bear though.

Great to see this game still being played in tournaments.

As for being broken, I don't know. It is, of course, but then all fighting games are. I'd actually have rated it "low tier broken" among the 90's fighting games. Still plays great anyway :)
