Had this game been not been called Killer Instinct I would have been intrigued by it but as a Killer Instinct game this is not what I want.

i loved this game as a kid and expected this to be trash but fortunately i'm wrong. the game looks a hell of a lot better than i expected

What happened to the no mercy.. did they take it out as did part 2 and just go with the ultimate? Actually you could still perform a Mercy in part 2 without being in mid combo, you just have to do it while your opponent's life was in the red. Not seeing any footage of any finishing move other than the ultra isn't exactly reassuring.

I just can't get over the fact that a reboot of a 20 year old fighting game is being touted as a flagship game for the new Xbox. Just seems funny to me.

They didn't listen to anything that gamers suggested, not one word. I cant believe that they ruined KI. I hope that Microsoft re-releases KI1 and kI gold, this way we will have a good game instead of this crap. KI3 Two huge thumbs down

This games feels better with every new footage and it seemed already amazing two months ago, when Jago and Sabrewulf were introduced.

Is it true you have to buy the chapters DLC in this game?

Well he sure looks more Ice Alien now instead of Ice Man Liquid Ice Alien.

As much as I think they are still pretty off with this game I have to admit, that is a good design for Glacius.

Is it me, or does Glacius look like a Michael Bay Decepticon?

This is pretty much the only next gen game I am excited for at the moment.

Looks too much like Mortal Kombat with a little bit of SF. Where is the uniqueness that was KI?

@Fursnake Well. What's so wrong with that? As long as it's a great to play game, there is every reason to do this, don't you think?

@hochstreck  thats a lie I played the game at E3 AND EVO BUT IT SUCKED BOTH TIMES. THESE GUYS NEVER LISTENED TO THE FANS

No, what they said they are doing is allowing you to play the game for free, but only have Jago. each additional character you want to play will cost $ but you can also just buy the whole game for the normal pricing as well. its basically pay for the characters you want, or buy the whole game like we do now.

@Rennik_Repotsir This whole game looks like it was done by Michael Bay. The people making it don't have a clue what made Killer Instinct...Killer Instinct.

@G4m3r0uTL4wZ Your joking right??? right?? its freaking amazing and keeps getting better, anyone who has had hands on say's its super fun and a treat to the eye period.

@Mrod1212 I'd actually say its more of a Street Fighter looking game with a Mortal Kombat style of character design. This is not Killer Instinct.

i keep seeing people say this, what exactly is the uniqueness that people say is missing? i played both KI and KI Gold and i dont see why this new one is bad. i think its great they are updating it and remaking it, like they should IMO.

Is it the nostalgia affect? is that why people are made about the remake?

@Mrod1212  Technically the original ripped off those two titles.It's later that it "somehow" became its own thing.I think that's what the devs tried to replicate here.

But as far as the character design go,i don't like it and it's kind of off.I would even go as far as to say i could probably do better.

I am pretty against this game right now but you typing in all caps and not elaborating on your disliking leads me to believe you have not even been in the same room as this game.

You realize that the original Killer Instinct was quite flashy and tacky to begin with, don't you? 

In my opinion, this looks like a great and surpringly tasteful reimagination of the original.

lol did you want this game to look just like the old ones? they came out in the mid 90's, thank god they are updating it to the soon to be current generation.

@Acekidder @G4m3r0uTL4wZ G4 is right in a way.  KI used to be very unique in the gameplay and had its own style.   Now it looks like SF, MK, mash the buttons type of game.  I dont like it and i used to love KI.  ORCHID!

@hochstreck @2dfighter4life The Game pay was unbelievably easy, the combos are cheesy also saberwolf is a total ripoff of John Tailbain, from darkstalkers excluding his dash. Jago's combos are horrible and over toony, Glacius isn't even close to the original.  The lack of the combo names that sucks you into the game. the Anouncers voice" Not saying combo after the combo. The fight mechanics litterally mirror MK3 and most of the mk games from the earlier years. Not Ki also the keep saying that KI has no Zoning which is false every Ki character had zoning abilities, also jump combos were already available . They were advertising as though they were adding something new infact theyre removing the more important details.

@Pitbull3744

No offence, but I would have you rather write about what was so unique about Killer Instinct back then (except its at that time awe-inspiring CGI-presention), than having to decipher your hard to understand threats.

@Grenadeh @hochstreck @Pitbull3744 @Acekidder @G4m3r0uTL4wZ 

I love the internet tough guys calling me stupid lol.  Anyway easy was def the wrong word and i was in 8th grade when that game came out so yes i a lot of time playing it but i was terrible at the game my boy was sick.  I wish these forums were in person i would love to see how many of these guys would talk shit to me then.  Forums are great they are for discussions but i guess there are always the morons who start with the name calling lol.

@Pitbull3744 @Acekidder @G4m3r0uTL4wZ  

Are you high or something? 

Killer Instinct was unique? 

Do you realize that the original "stole"(I really don't like terms like this, as they appear extremly naive) pretty much everything that was good and hot about Streetfighter, SNK-Fighters and Mortal Combat, gave it more accessiblity(easy combos), a state of the art presentation(CGI and cool music and sounds) and exaggerated(more tacky gore and special effects) it at the same time? 

Don't get me wrong, I also think that Killer Instinct was an amazing game, but contrary to you, I think this new iteration feels, looks and sounds just as amazing as the original. 

I'm also very happy to see that they reduced the tasteless gore, which I think always felt and still feels cheap and misplaced in every form of entertainment.
