Killer Instinct Review
Overall - 9.3
Killer Instinct on the SNES is sort of like a Mortal Kombat game. I have this game on this very day, which means that I have played it a long time ago. I do not know how I got this game, but I assure you what got me into getting this game is probably the game cover. It looked so awesome. I really enjoyed playing this game a lot. It is a fighting game and the characters are cool. If I never have gotten this game, I would probably have never heard of this game before.
Graphics - 9
The graphics are amazing. It has mild blood with different colors from different people. The game looks a bit okay. I think that some of the people look a little messed up. The effects are pretty cool. Some have intense effects when they do a special move and some just have very fast combos.
Sound - 8
The sounding is very good. More like Mortal Kombat if you ask me. There is that person talking that will say when the battle starts and sometimes name the person you choose (just like Mortal Kombat). The sound effects are pretty good, but it is just weird that you would hear the same noise when you use an attack move. There is only like 2 or 3 different "hiya" sounds from one person and that is alright I guess.
Addictiveness - 7
I played this a lot now and it still is fun. What is fun to do is make combos and do cool moves on your opponent. This game should have been remade on the PS2 or something cause this is very awesome.
Story - N/A
I am sure that there is no story in this game. It is basically Mortal Kombat, like I said, and you just fight your way to the end of the game. I have beaten the game before and I think it just says "Congratulations, play on a harder difficulty." It may have said that, but I just stopped playing once I beaten it.
Depth - 8
The game has a lot to offer. For instance, you can change up to 5 or 6 colors on each of your characters and there is like 10 to 15 characters that you can use. It is a lot of fun and best of all, you can play with your friends on it. Verse each other and do some sweet combos and moves that you would not think to try.
Difficulty - 5
I have got to say, this game can be difficult, even on the easiest difficulty. First of all, it is hard to make moves on some people and some of them are easy to make moves. There was one person that I used and you had to like hit right, down, left, and a certain button very fast. That is crazy. When you play 1-player, the opponents are kind of hard, but it can be tricky some of the time. I cannot beat the game that easily out of how many times I have played it.
Wrap Things Up...
Killer Instinct is a game you have got to love. I highly recommend trying this game out if you have not already, especially those who love playing fighting games like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighters. :)
