Very fun FTP

A very fun and free fighting game I got addicted to. There really isn't anything bad about it, but they should have an update where you can do finishing moves, rn beating somebody isn't really rewarding if they just fall to the floor. Fun game tho 👍

Fun offline, but really bad story and toxic community

The game is my personal favorite fighting game. Easier to play than MKX and quite a diverse, ever-growing cast. I have a few problems though. I'm very casual when I play, on or offline. But the game of encourages aggression towards other players in a bad way. I understand this (when played online) is a competitive game but most of the people I have watched and played against seem to forget they are still playing a GAME against a HUMAN being. As a result, a lot of excessive crouching, spam taunts, and the worst of all, harrassment via mail. They will completely rag you about skill even though everybody in this game spams heavy overheads and grabs or at least one of those things. Next, I feel like the SL story is very bad, I feel like the dialogue was written by a child (no offense) I just couldn't take it seriously and completely lost interest in SL. Like I said, the core game is amazing, I really enjoy PvE, from single fights, to S1&2 story modes, to survival.

Matchmaking is so broken...

Do not play the multiplayer, I would be paired with lvl 5o players with the highest rank while im only bronze. However, the single player is decent, but the a.i. is very stupid and exploited very eaisly.

Its good but doesn't appeal to casual audience

The game is great with online and offline features. Its just a different play style from other fighting games. It lacks teaching beginners to get into the game, but well established fighters who play other fighting games SHOULD pick it up. Its like Street Fighter just more combo orientated, and just learning the basics are different from other games. The training mode kind of half why explains how to do combos, and the Light, Medium, and Heavy are displayed on the screen they don't justify quarter-circle left or right only linker this and auto that. They need to make it understandable enough for others to get into the game, and people get frustrated about how well they play. Understanding the defense system of the game is crucial, and is a good thing they added Combo Breaker training mode which helps if you dont understand why you can't break sometimes. I've been playing this game since it came out, and it took me awhile to figure it out after Season 1 ended. It thankfully evolved.

Looks cool but you have to pay

I think this is a cool game since I saw videos of it on Youtube. So when I downloaded it I figured out you actually had to buy a character to play, or use a free rotation one. I didnt get the definitive edition, but I just want to say that when you start the game, it should give you 1 token for a free character, that way if you get a free version of the game, you wont have to only use the free rotation character.
