Killer Instinct - Xbox One Review | GamesBeat

Killer Instinct arguably picks up the slack this year as one of the most exciting fighting game revivals yet. Not only does it stick to its roots by going all-in on the ridiculous, testosterone-laden ultraviolence that it had in the ’90s, but it also improves on some its basic gameplay mechanics that just didn’t work back in the day.

It definitely is. I had the game to myself for about 20 minutes and was practicing combos. The fighting system is so easy to pick up and play but is deep at the same time.

Nice. Are the controls very responsive? Sometimes when you play a fighting game and you're doing a combo, it's like you have to press the button multiple times to get the timing correct for one hit. Sorry if this sounds confusing.

The game looks fun.

The controls are VERY responsive. The game instills a lot of confidence in you right from the start about pulling off combos.

It feels very natural and beat em up veterans and newbies will get accustomed to it straight away.

Not much of a KIller Instinct fan (I remember it more for its cabinet art than the actual gameplay), but I'll give this a try

I think you get Jago character for Free...it cant hurt your pockets that bad. If you like it pay $20 for all 8 characters.

I mean $20 with more content to come is great price.

Its a fighting game, GAMEPLAY trumps.

double helix did a fantastic job considering their past record and time constraints it seems that its low scores are from a lack of content which is fair even though in a year from now this will be a thing of the past. For $20 though this is a steal cant wait to pick it up... good job DH and Ms!
