Killer Instinct Xbox One review | OXM

Even the most devout Killer Instinct fans probably abandoned hope for Rare's fighting franchise long ago, now 17 years removed from its previous entry. But with the genre surging and an exciting new console to power the combat, the series is finally back — and the new Killer Instinct succeeds at stoking nostalgic fires while updating the action.

It seems that the general negative comments about this game seem to focus on the limited roster and season style structure. For the most part everything I have read has been very positive about the actual fighting dynamics which is great to hear! The nostalgia alone is going to be awesome!

Roster can always be increased via DLC's as well.

The game is also free-to-play in a way, since you can play it for free with Jago as the only unlocked character. It is also on 20$ to unlock the entire roster so that is not very expensive.

@dragon
so downloading a demo with 6 playable characters in MvC3 is 6 times the game KI is?

free to play my @ss

i expected the game to get 7s and 8s across the board. One thing about KI is there is now way you can review this game by just playing it a couple of times. The fighting and combo system is too to deep and complex for the average gamer, which most journalist are. You will definitely have to put in some time to learn all the ins and outs of each character. The only minus I would give it right now would be the business model they have for it. I would say it's worth it though, especially since they will be adding the original KI to that package.

Yeah the only 'negatives' really relate to the pricing model. But other than that, Double Helix have redeemed themselves as far as the game itself is concerned it seems.

More characters are definitely going to be added btw.

even official xbox magazine being not biased. Remember playstation sites were trying to do damage control for low killzone and knack reviews by giving 9s and 10s lol but killer instint looks great.

Septic1489d ago

Actually, didn't one of the official PS magazines give Killzone an 8? That's relatively low for an official PS4 mag to give the most important launch title.

same negatives , roster and dlc

for a GAME with no arcade mode and only 8 fighters its scoring pretty well.

hope they add more features.

alb18991489d ago (Edited 1489d ago )

THIS GAME WILL SCORE A 9 IF IT HAS ALL THE CHARACTERS SO I GIVE IT A 9 BECAUSE IS A 20 DOLLARS GAME AND THEY'LL HAVE MORE CHARACTERS IN THE NEAR FEATURE.

RM-TatoTiburon1489d ago
