Fun, few possible improvements

Love the smash bros feel it has, art style is great, character variety. But as of now I'd love to have 4-player online matches.

Awesome game

It's a great game I love it but... can you remove that when you get knocked into the air you cant avoid it that well like what I mean is I get knocked into the air several times it's very hard to avoid and sometimes I get emotional when I get beat and start crying.Please remove lag from getting hit and being able to be juggled.

Great game but...

I love everything about the game in terms of mechanics and it has a lot of potential to perhaps one day get a sequel. Only one huge issue, I need to be able to play it. Whenever Itry to open the game, it takes an extremely long time to load and when it does, it takes even more time to start a match. I love playing this game so please fix it. Thank you so much Dan Fornace

Loading issue

** Edit - The loading prolem that players are experiencing seems to e an issue with the save data. After deleting my save data, and cancelling the save data sync once the game starts 1-3 times, the game loads / loads faster than usual. -- I love the game, played it for hours, days even. The game now no longer loads. When selecting the game in my library, the title loads, and the screen stays black ; Tried loading for about half an hour>hard resetting xbox>uninstalling/reinstalling game>delete save data ; Issue persists. I wouldnt mind so much if it were a free game, but once again.. I've purchased the game in preview and it does not work. Please contact me with a fix or solution or i'll have to get a refund from microsoft.. which i REALLY dont want to do... The game is awesome.

Great game

Risals of aether at first gglance may seem like a smashbros clone, but that couldnt be farther from the truth besides a few details. Its both quick and fun as well as competative with great pixel art, original and beatiful stages and a colorful class of characters. My only issue however is the learning curve , i strongly reccomend the tutorials because you may run into someone who comes online and destroy you. I actually also have an issue with the game starting up it takes a solid minute to load and versus mode is even slower.

Great Game

Great game could use more characters but still very good and well done.

Fast-paced platform fighter

This is possibly the best platform fighter since Super Smash Bros. The characters and mechanics are based on SSB, but each character and stage has unique qualities to easily set themselves apart. The art and music are vibrant and remniscient of retro games. I could explain every little detail, but the demo download is tiny and you'll only know how you feel by playing it.

Bugs now holds it back to be esports ready

Okay as of this week the game crashes from selecting singleplayer and now has made the startup time 2 minutes before i see the title we need patches now okay. This game isnt finished with pc having some features i love with new updates. Treat this game as smash brothers melee with more casuals able to pick it up. Don't get me wrong this game has advanced techniques but the amazing tutoriol mode can teach even the youngest of sheep. Banning and stage striking is very easy with each stage having "9 bit" music which I love. The online is quite awesome having ping accept or decline matches for the best quality of online. This game has best 2 out of 3 most of the time with number system with no thinking required its quite easy. All chracters have unique things to them and are quite fun to use more than one character. Hopefully, Evo will pick it up some day
