I don´t see what´s so bad or funny in it. A couple of cheaply animated parts aside (usually when they´re doing multi-hitting moves), it looks pretty good. Much better than the usual slideshows.
Well, I'm not complaining. I think the opening is great, but it's also ugly and terribly cheesy. Everything the characters do is so...typical and cheesy. The direction is cheesy...the character designs are (appropriately) dated-looking and everything about it feels old.
That's FINE, though, because I'm sure that's what they intended. When I saw it I said "Oh God, it's 1994 all over again." and although it was hokey, it was enjoyable and highly appropriate. It's still bad because it's cheesy, but it's also great because it fits KOF 94.
Of course, you may think that the designs in '94 aren't poor or dated and that they hold up even by today's standards. You may also think that the direction is solid and that the characters aren't doing anything typical or cheesy. I'm saying "SNK was clever to go for something sort of off-beat like this". If they were shooting for the most awesome opening they could though, I think it was a collosal miscalculation....or at the very least, they're out of touch with the present.
