Even though KOFXIV was released on PS4 in August of 2016, there were still many players who were highly anticipating the game being released on Steam for PC. Now that the game is released on PC, it will bring it a lot of those players who were waiting patiently as well as new players who don’t have a PS4 console (or that do but like to play fighters on PC instead).
The game is currently at version 2.01. In this review, I will give my thoughts on how the Steam version has properly optimized & showcased the game’s graphics, gameplay, and the replay value of the game!
In version 1.10 there was a very big update that increased & updated the game’s visuals. In the Steam version, the graphics have a very slick look & very fluid animation. You can also change the visual details in the graphics options if you feel that your graphics card can’t properly utilize certain functions for increased performance.
Like with most KOF games, the gameplay is fun & easy to learn for beginners with the tutorial section. You can learn the basic gameplay mechanics that you will use as tools for battles both offensively and defensively.
Training mode now has recording slots for different conditions that are now EXTREMELY helpful for intermediate players and expert players to constantly test new strategies, tactics, setups, situations & move properties:
Online play from many players report that the netcode is superior to the PS4 version in terms of less delay/lag in between opponents.
For those that don’t know KoFXIV on steam has less input lag than PS4. Bad idea for offline practice. Better for netplay, I guess.

REPLAY VALUE & EXTRAS
Things to keep players busy playing King of Fighters XIV are extras unlocked by playing story mode (& other modes), a robust training mode, many different modes & options when playing online. A digital art book is featured in one of the folders the game is installed in: /Steam/steamapps/common/
Also, the game is being worked on constantly for balance updates, more possible DLC content & technical fixes for bugs, glitches & improved features! Which new DLC content would you like to see featured?
One of the main criticisms many players & potential buyers feel at the moment is that the price of both the standard & deluxe version should be lowered for more people who aren’t fully committed & aren’t hardcore fans of King of Fighters to buy. Steam offers many sales throughout the year that lowers the price a considerable amount but many people feel the retail default price should be lowered.
Another criticism players have expressed is that they feel the game’s graphical optimization (at it’s current state) should be improved or specified more in-depth regarding running the game on different kinds of PC hardware. Some players feel the game runs a little slow FPS-wise on certain stages that have lots of animations in the background. A fair amount of players feel that the game runs perfectly on their computer, however. It might just be an issue of players not meeting the correct and exact PC specs or certain kinds of hardware aren’t running the game at it’s full potential.
WHY SHOULD YOU BUY THIS GAME
If you have the PS4 version, with a good gaming PC, you should buy KOFXIV Steam Edition so you can expand your online player base with those who may not have a PS4. If you have a gaming laptop that meets the requirements to run KOFXIV, you can play this game wherever you are!
If you have a PC & you love King of Fighters, you should definitely buy this game because the character roster is large & unique, the amount of content featured is impressive, the gameplay is fun, rewarding & welcoming for new players, & the online experience is one of the best among many fighting games released now!
