It also includes colorful stages with a lot of cameos, contrasting the gray, desaturated stages from the classical ''KOF 2002'' and the lacking stages from ''Neowave''; stages including [[BeachEpisode a beautiful beach in Italy]] (For the Fatal Fury and 97 Special Team, and '''Geese'''), The [=NeoGeo=] World (An amusement park for K's Team and Pretty Girls Team), a station in Korea (For Kim's Team and the new Edit Team), some ancient ruins in Cambodia (perfect for the Ikari and Father Teams), a Chinese Restaurant (Fitting for the Psycho Soldiers), a street in front of a concert hall (For the Agents and Woman's team), [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting The Kyokugen Gym]] (Where you can even spot Gato and Hotaru from Garou: Mark Of The Wolves), a spectacular battle arena (For Iori Team, the New Faces Team, and '''Goenitz'''), a colorful High School in Japan (For Kyo and company), an ominous yet awesome AbandonedLaboratory (for Kyo clones and NESTS lackeys), and probably the best of them all, remastered versions of the stages for the bosses (Including the Skynoah stage for Omega Rugal); Clone Zero's and Igniz's stages are particularly gorgeous and well detailed, specially with their new music.\\

* The previous DreamMatchGame, ''The King Of Fighters 98: Ultimate Match'' also deserves a special mention:\\

* The previous DreamMatchGame, ''The King Of Fighters 98: Ultimate Match'' also deserves a special mention:\\mention, starting with the fact that it's the remake of what some gamers consider it's the best [=KOF=] in the franchise!\\



It brought back not only the whole roster of the original ''KOF 98 Slugfest'', but in general, it brought back ''all'' characters appearing during the Rugal and Orochi sagas, which adds up to 43 different characters. (Not including extra versions and the final bosses, which brings it it up to a grand total of 64, technically speaking). Aside of the already known stages, it also included new stages, such as a train station in Hong Kong, the Great Wall in China, and even the dark arena from 96, where you fight Geese Howard and his cohorts Wolfgang Krauser and Mr. Big, and the coliseum where the battle with Goenitz takes place; and the different dimension stages from 97, where you engage the New Faces Team in their Orochi versions, as well as Orochi himself. Beware, as this time, the bosses really mean business.\\

Added DiffLines:

Aside of the already known Advance and Extra modes, ''KOF 98 UM'' adds a third mode, named Ultimate, which enables the player to combine aspects from the former two modes into something players feel is more comfortable to them (You can choose between Emergency Evade or Sidestep, Dash or make a long step, Charge the power bar by attacking and taking damage, or charging it manually). The Final Edition for PC even made a huge rebalance of all characters, so no, Krauser, you no longer are the lonely Top Tier.\\

* Krizalid's IAmNotLeftHanded moment. So you beat the first form of Krizalid pretty easily right? Now to show that he isn't messing around anymore, he burns his coat WHILE HE'S STILL WEARING IT! Rugal Bernstein, eat your heart out!

* Another awesome aspect of ''KOF 2002: Unlimited Match'' is, despite it being a DreamMatchGame, it actually comes with a plot (An ExcusePlot to be exact), which seems to be centered on Nameless and his story. (It is not referenced or mentioned in-game, but [[AllThereInTheManual it's in the manual]], but that doesn't make it less awesome).

It also took it out of the park by including 3D versions of the stages, as well as an arranged soundtrack for the PS2 (These features were removed in the Final Edition for PC, but that doesn't reduce its awesomeness).
