Preferred over MKX

this game has turn into a beauty since the last time i played it. i prefer it over MKX entirely due to its combo mechanics. its more than just a combo... it's a mind game.

60$

60$ is all you have to spend to play every fighter. That's pretty reasonable, you're getting all the game has to offer for the price of a triple A title. Killer instinct is a great fighter for players of all skill levels.

Best button mashing simulator around.

Easy to pick up but hard to master. This game offers a fun experience for the casual player looking to get wins while rolling their controllers face buttons over the contours of their face.

One of the Best Fighters Around

Killer Instinct has more heart and soul than most other games around. It will satisfy fans 100%. Honestly, the only things missing are the finishing moves. The combo system is very high risk high reward. The roster is completely diverse. No two characters play alike and every single one of them is balanced. Also, the net code is some of the best out there with close to no imput delay. KI released more than 2 1/2 years ago and is still fully supported with monthly content and updates. A must own for all fighting game fans.

I remember not liking this franchise, then I learned it was free so it became my first Xbox One purchase. I'm proud to say I'm on board now! Lots of hypetrains has came out for this console and flopped but this game has always been there to cure my boredom. I'm not disappointed with my purchase! Only downside to this game is that it's almost 3 years old so the early adapters has already mastered this

too much DLC add-on

The game is amazing. But the fact that you have to buy a lot of characters is dumb. They should make one of the DLC packs free next time for GOLD like last time.
