Killer Instinct (Series) Review
Posted: 13 months ago, last updated 4 months ago.
Killer Instinct play is classic combo-based attacks where players need to memorise combinations and series of button presses to trigger attacks. This starts quite simply but soon expands into a highly skilled chess-like series of Openers, Auto-Doubles, Linkers, Enders and Manuals. Each of which require specific skills and knowledge of the game.
Players: You can play with 2 players in the same room and up to 2 players online.
