    If you own a Xbox One or a Windows 10 PC, you need this game. Killer Instinct: Definitive Edition is fantastic, in almost every way.

    Beautiful, packed with content, easy to play yet hard to master, Killer Instinct Definitive Edition is without a shadow of a doubt an excellent 2D versus fighting game.

    With the adding of Shadow Lords, Killer Instinct become one of the most interesting fighting games of this generation. The Iron Galaxy title is a great and entertaining game; It offers an amazing experience, for the quantity and for the high quality of its content.

    Good things come to those who wait. After three years filled with content and with the added Shadow Lords mode Killer Instinct evolved from an ugly duckling that hardly didn’t offer any content to a potential prospect for the beat-em-up throne.
