    It’s a little rough around the edges in terms of polish and fidelity, but as a fighting game, it’s charmingly ambitious. Generally speaking, it has a cool vibe with neat interpretations of classic characters from dark storytelling’s past.

    Omen of Sorrow is an efficient and fun fighting game while in the heat of battle, but it trips getting to the arena. Barebones mode selection, a Story Mode that’s clumsy and doesn’t properly pay off, and some strange dialogue throughout keep the game from reaching full potential. The characters are really cool and the fighting system is worth learning, the game does succeed in that regard, but I still am left wanting more. The true Omen isn’t one of Sorrow, it’s one of where’s the rest of the game?

    It's great to see a new "contenter" in a category of games occupied by giants. Omen of Sorrow is by no means a perfect game, but what it tries to do it does it right and it paves the way for AOne games to become a major player in the genre.

    Omen of Sorrow is a quite interesting fighting game with some original ideas, but its gameplay and cast have quite a lot to improve.

    Omen of Sorrow offers a lot of modes, unlocks, characters, and some decent fighting elements, but it doesn’t quite have the polish or draw to keep me invested. For genre fans, though, it’s worth checking into.

    There's some joy to be had here, especially when you consider the interesting design of the fighters, who are all in some way based on characters from gothic literature. However, when push comes to shove, there's just not enough here - in terms of depth or contents - to keep you playing for long.

    Unfortunately, Omen of Sorrow feels like it’s taken a “quantity over quality” approach that results in a flaccid, broken experience. From the characters and art to the core act of fighting, nothing in Omen of Sorrow quite sticks the landing. There are a lot of incredible fighting games to check out this year, but Omen of Sorrow is not one of them.

It reminds me of Killer Instinct butThis game and the studio behind it and did a great job the character models the stages and the music. It reminds me of Killer Instinct but better graphically. I'm not a huge fan of indie games but I did buy this one out of curiosity and all I have to say is finally somebody made an actual game instead of doing this two-bit weeaboo bullcrap. Thank you to the studio who made this I very well appreciate it I just wish you could play online or-ranked. Expand

    I'm a big fan of horror movies and fighting games so I was waiting for it since the announcement. It's great to see new IPs being released.I'm a big fan of horror movies and fighting games so I was waiting for it since the announcement. It's great to see new IPs being released. Pros: Well designed scenarios like the one in fire -did I mention how long they are?- and compelling game mechanics for any player level. Fortune/Fate system is really a great addition. Fresh characters and great twists of classic horror ones. Cons: I've found a few bugs, but patches seems to solve the most critical ones. Definitely worth try it. Expand

Si bien no tiene muchos personajes como otros juegos, por lejos el online supera todas mis expectativas. Me gustaría ver mas personajes (tiene muy pocos) y que sigan balanceando el juego. Expand

This game is taking a beating in every trusted review out there yet somehow the devs seem to be in denial about how bad this game really is.

    So to you gamers: As someone above me said just watch a couple of videos before you sink money into this ****

    And to you devs: as a gamer and as a fellow latin american I ask you to stop trying to trick people into buying your bad game, cut your loses, learn what can be learned and move on.
