nice but expensive

Ok so i decided to download this game a little while after i got my Xbox. The first issue i came across was all but one of my characters are treated as not owned when i play offline, which caused me to uninstall it and not touch the game for months until a friend talked me into giving KI another shot. Which led to my second problem the "best deal" system. I understand that a free game that continues to add to it's character roster must have a source of income. Killer Instinct does this by charging you for the characters this only becomes a ordel depending on how you buy the fighters, you see buying fighters separately or even sesons without going for best deal would be a waste of your hard earned cash but even with these deals as a new season releases your previous "best deal" becomes just another normal sale. So until the day fighters stop releasing you're going to be paying more than 60$. Which begs the question "how much is this game worth to you?

auth server down = no access to DLC

If Microsofts authentication server goes down then you won't be able to gain access to any of the DLC content. The game becomes completely gimped and unplayable. It's always nice buying a game and having it revert to a basic version because of reasons completely outside of your control and you have no idea if the problem is even acknowledged or when it will be fixed.

Great fun 4&1/2 stars if could, But 2 minor complaints

I am not a big fan of fighters but this game is just plain fun, only reasons I won't add the last star. Definitive Edition and you still have 2 fighters that are purchase required to use. Play anywhere works flawlessly for KI on my PC but classic games won't download because processer is .1mhz under recommendation. All in all well worth the sale price. Full price, your call but it's best if you catch it on sale.

Almost 30 bucks for 5 characters and nothing else.

So I had one free fighter to start with and now Eagle is free too. But I paid $28 and some change for five fighters basically. Still trying to find the original KI and KI2 but I don't think I have any other content aside five fighters. How do I even get a refund on a purchase like this? I mean it is false advertising, after all. I should have more than seven options for fighters, when I spend this much on a game that has been out this long.

Spectacular Collection

Killer Instinct: Definitive Edition is a welcome addition to any game library, especially if you like fighters. The bundle comes filled to the brim with KI based info, extras, games, and an overall good time. By opening the title from Games and Apps or your Home screen, you'll be given tons of different options; you can begin playing any of the 3 Killer Instinct games (Classic, 2, and the 2013-2017 reboot), listening to the soundtracks from the games, viewing concept art for characters and locations, and watching trailers and mini-documentaries for the reboot. All these choices are enjoyable in their own right, but what you'll like most really depends on your preferences. All in all, I'd say Definitive Edition is perfect for any fan of the KI series or fighters in general, so get it if you haven't yet.

Good game but a slap in the face for Classic & PC Fans!

KI amazing game amazing bundle with all it's main game and bonus content but the question remains? WHY NO CLASSIC KI 1? Or 2? the new KI tho a bit pricey is still a wonderful throwback for fans and I'm very happy to see it alive and kicking still to this day with new content as promised so why only 2 stars then? Because Definitive Edition has all this wonderful history in it and the killer cuts soundtracks etc but is missing the two most important of it all! KI 1 and 2 Classic the games that started it all are only on XboxOne us PC version fans got the short end of the stick to such historic masterpieces and it breaks my heart as a fan to see Iron Galaxy and Microsoft not including it now with this bundle that is supposed to be the end all be all version of the game or so we were lead to believe since the game is still getting new pay for content?
