Beyond Killer Instinct – What I'd Like To See From Rare

Game Informer - If you were gaming in the mid-‘90s, it was tough to avoid Killer Instinct hype. Nintendo used the Midway-developed game (along with Cruis’n USA) to show off what its then-upcoming Nintendo 64 was capable of, even using it as a teaser at the end of a Donkey Kong Country promo tape. I played it in the local arcade a few times and thought it looked good, but it wasn’t enough to loosen my grip on Street Fighter. I bought the game along with the 64, and while I admired Rare’s porting job, at the end of the day I was still playing Killer Instinct. (Culture, Killer Instinct, Rare)
