    Killer Instinct is one of the best fighting games available on new consoles. Unique and extremely fun, you shouldn't miss it if you have an Xbox One.

    An excellent fighting game, fast and furious, easy to learn hard to master and with superb audio and graphics. A jewel for fans of the genre that will have a long life. Season 2 improves combat mechanics, add great new characters and has new good ideas like Laboratory mode.

    With the new characters and modes, Killer Instinct reaffirms itself as one of the best fighting games in the market. The combat system is still great, and the netcode is probably the best around. Definitely a must for Xbox One owners who love the genre.

    Killer Instinct Season 1 was an excellent fighting game but it had very limited amount of content and only 8 fighters. The Season 2 addressesKiller Instinct Season 1 was an excellent fighting game but it had very limited amount of content and only 8 fighters. The Season 2 addresses that problem by adding another eight fighters to the mix, including four classic fighters from the original KI games. The first two of these Season 2 characters are really well done and fun to play.

    Season 2 also increases the resolution of the game, making the already beautiful fighting game look even better. The in-game menus have been vastly improved and stage ultras are being introduced to the stages. The fact new characters will be added to the game over the course of next six months will ensure that the game remains fresh and interesting until Season 3 is released.

    Even without the Season 2 improvements and addition, the core game is still one of the best fighting games around and it keeps getting better.

The variety of characters and quality spent on each one is unmatched on what I have played. Having Rash from Battletoads as a bonus S3 character is the icing on the cake. Expand

    KI Season 2:

    The initial reviews of Killer Instinct were positive, but most stated negativity around the initial volume of characters (8) and the skepticism surrounding the promised release of more characters and active involvement in improving the game. I'm here to say that while it is a good thing to be cautious of promises, Killer Instinct has exceeded expectations, and is the best fighting game available today.

    The game's resolution has jumped from 720p to 900p and looks better than ever. There are currently 14 characters available with three more being released over the course of the next three months. The amazing thing about the characters is that there is more variety than in almost any fighting games. Zoning, Tanks, fast characters, then of course Jago for your well rounded, and easy to use character for people transitioning from Street fighter and used to Ken or Ryu. Speaking of Transitioning from Street Fighter, that's just what I did, and this game's mechanics at the bare bones are very similar to the SF series. The combo system is definitely different, but it is beatable and extremely entertaining! This game is fun to just watch other talented players because of the pace of battle. The online Netcode is the best on the xbox one, and the only place I would recommend fighting if you want seamless online matches one after the other.

    Season 2 has done more to improve KI than any re-release of SF or DOA ever did for that series, and the best part? You only have to purchase the character pack to have them all, an additional $20 that is totally worth it. I really look forward to what season 3 has to offer. I'm interested to see the design layouts and new characters introduced next year. I would love to see this game competing in popularity with the likes of Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat for years to come. Killer Instinct has climbed and claimed its place at the top of the Fighting genre.

    An utter lackluster disappointment with a braindead story that makes no sense and fighters that should have been in the game but are beingAn utter lackluster disappointment with a braindead story that makes no sense and fighters that should have been in the game but are being given to us via DLC. I am so disappointed and drained at this lackluster yet fun game. This rating is for Season 2 and 3 combined. 6.7/10. This rating also goes towards Street Fighter V and MKX XL. Better fighting with a lackluster story + new mechanics DOES NOT EQUAL AN AMAZING FIGHTING GAME WORTH $60 let alone $40! Remember Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and etc? -_- Expand
