Good news for the fan is that The King of Fighters 2002 is free on GOG.com now.

However, this quick grab Valentine’s Day/Chinese New Year gift to claim within less than 48 hours is the PC version of the game and it has a few setbacks according to the user reviews. Apparently, the control system for the game is locked and by that we mean, not only you cannot map your keys but controllers are not supported too.

After a few release with the 4-on-4 "Striker Match" format, The King of Fighters 2002 brought the classic three-on-three fighting system back again by ditching that formula. The game was dropped on arcade systems back in 2002 from Eolith and Playmore as the ninth title of the series. Considering all the issues people are complaining about, you can go and grab the new SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy instead.
