Its really good to see Microsoft put their franchises to good use. People have wanted Killer Instinct for ages. And the reviews are rolling in.
Its fantastic to see that all the reviewers so far have either A) said the game plays flawlessly or B) is a very good fighter.
The low scores traditionally to do with content here. If you cant wait get it now. Or wait for MArch when loads more content is added to the game. Story mode, Bigger roster etc. Alot of Reviewers say they will re review the game next year.
I expect the new reviews to take the title over 90 metacritic. When is the last time you have seen a game score in the 70's metacritic with 6 characters
and only 1 mode of play?
Its being held up due to an amzing gameplay experience.
Thankyou Microsoft for bringing Killer Instinct back properly. Thankyou for an amazing fighting game.
Me? I cant wait for more content so Im juming in 22/11/2013.
"A year from now, Killer Instinct could be one of the best fighting games ever made. In its current state, it feels like the inherently replayable foundation for something bigger. The general lack of content is made up for by the mind-blowing fun factor, where pick-up-and-play controls meet meticulously crafted game mechanics. And despite the sensation that I've seen everything there is to see, I suspect I'll still be playing KI for months. Because sometimes, an awesome piece of a finished product is all you need to enjoy yourself."
