Killer Instinct

Xbox One


I have fond memories of playing Killer Instinct in the arcades nearly 20 years ago. Lengthy combo counts, the guttural shouts of the announcer, and the excitement of pulling off an ultra combo always brings a smile to my face. Its ridiculousness set itself apart from the juggernauts of the era (like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat), and I expected no less from this reboot of the series. Killer Instinct on Xbox One stays true to the fun and silliness of its past, but also has a deep, competent, and innovative engine driving the action. The base formula for stringing together combos is largely unchanged
