    A lovely fighting game with a style all its own, Skullgirls 2nd Encore pairs finely tuned combat with cute and gruesome characters to create a wonderful display of passion and design. If it weren't for its technical limitations, this game could easily be considered a masterpiece.

    Skullgirls 2nd Encore is an easy recommendation to anyone who has even a passing interest in the fighting genre.

    Skullgirls 2nd Encore loses some visual luster, but that's about it. Besides the disappointing graphical downgrade, players are getting an identical experience to the console version. Considering it's cross-buy, there's a lot to like here.

    Though it is by no means the definitive version of the title, Skullgirls: 2nd Encore is a great fighting game for the Vita.

    Nonetheless, the art is impressive enough that even a somewhat pale reflection of greatness is still worth seeing. Combine that with an average fighting game and…well, to be honest, I'm not sure if it's enough to make Skullgirls worth a recommendation, unless you're either really into fighting games, or really into seeing an aesthetic that doesn't get nearly enough representation in games.

    Its odd yet enchanting art design and overall presentation make it stand out, not to mention the awesome training. Unfortunately, this port to the Vita has some control and visual issues, and '2nd Encore' is probably best played on the PS4.

    Skullgirls 2nd Encore is a much easier purchase to recommend to a PS Vita or PS TV owner who already owns Skullgirls Encore on PS3 or owns a PS4.

The characters are so well animated that this game has the record for most frames on a single character. The character designs themselves are absolutely phenomenal. Skullgirls has an absolutely well done tutorial , making it so even the newest members of the FGC can learn how to play. The netcode for online matches are better then even some AAA fighting games. All in all, a must have for gamers who are heavily into fighting games. Expand
