A few things that bug me about KI Gold
« on: July 30, 2013, 10:02:42 PM »

I love kiG, but I hate how far the camera is. I know it's for the presentation to look better, yet annoying.  I also dislike the "supreme victory" poses.  I love the animated videos better.  Being a N64 game is was still great, but its just the minor things that bugged me. Any thoughts?

KI Gold was not as good for KI2 on the console as KI (SNES) was good for the original KI on the console. In my opinion. KI Gold just feels like they kind of got lazy.

The combo training is one of my favorite features.  I also like how each character has a Gold and shadow color to choose from.

The combo training was definately the defining feature of Gold. I could honestly care less about the gold and shadow characters. The original KI in the arcades promised a perfect port of it to the N64, but KI Gold kind of failed to deliver.

Even though KIGold is a so-so port I like it for what it is and I played a ton of it. The combo practice was one of the features I loved about it and the Team Battle and other modes were actually fun.

It funny how they actually gave Orchid the second finisher and added a "Knock Off" in Combo's stage. (That looks stupidly funny each time I see it)

 Something that always bothered me was that all the KI charecters were sent back in time right after the turnament yet both Orchid and Combo have stages sett in modern time.

at the time , when i was in my teens i absolutely loved KI Gold . i was still in secondary school so i could on go to the arcades in central london on the weekend and with pocket money i saved up from my gran and mum . It was 10x graphically superior to the snes KI1  ,it felt like  this is was so close to the arcade experience for me . But after all the years had gone by and i saw what capcom did with resident evil making it a 512meg cartridge holding all the fmv and cutseens in there , rare could have easily fitted the characters win poses , supreme victorys , characters bio's in there. Maybe because KIGold wasnt released too long after n64 release they wanted to get it out as quick as possible

The training mode was definitely my favorite feature too, i played that one a lot even if KI was better.
