I am a massive fan of fighting games. This should be no secret to those who have read my previous work here. When Killer Instinct was announced and then released for Xbox One, I was excited since the series is a beloved one and fans have been clamoring for a revival for years. With the game’s recent launch on Steam, I have finally gotten the chance to play and experience the reboot for myself.

Let me start out by saying that Killer Instinct is a gorgeous game. The particle effects are second to none and every detail of the visuals is just incredible. The game is a true work of art and that is not even getting to the gameplay yet. In terms of the gameplay, Killer Instinct has one of the best tutorials of any fighting game, and a worthy rival to Guilty Gear for the claim of best fighting tutorial ever. It really shows you how to play even if you are not very good at most fighting games.

I love that Killer Instinct is easy to learn but difficult to master, as it creates a unique playing field. The gameplay is fast and intense, and with the awesome characters available, you will want to play them all. I was unsure what I would think of the new additions to the roster but Double Helix and then Iron Galaxy did a great job with the game. It just feels right. Every hit feels like it means something, and that might be due to the way the music syncs up with the gameplay.

Speaking of the music, this game has some amazing audio and more than lives up to the music of its predecessors. That in itself is a high achievement, but the game more than stands on its own, as it is some of the best music ever in a video game. You can tell so much love was put into this, both in tributes to what came before and in terms of new ideas.

Killer Instinct is a must play for everyone. The online play is awesome with little to no issues, and as the Steam version is the complete version with all content, there is a good amount of single player gameplay as well. This is the best revival of a classic fighting game that has ever been done and I fully recommend checking this out. I am eager to see what modders will do with the game, similar to games like Street Fighter V on Steam, but that is another story. The game runs well, plays well and is just all around amazing. I do not want to sound gushing but I really have no complaints about this. I do not regret the purchase of the game in any way and feel you all will not regret it either.
