Critic Reviews for Killer Instinct: Season 3

Since its release, Killer Instinct has slowly become one of the most competent fighters in the genre. It's accessible at all levels thanks to its approachable yet deep combo system and extensive tutorial. Its characters, including the new ones from Season 3, all have unique mechanics and tons of small touches that bring them to life. With an efficient and non-scummy free-to-play model and PC availability, there are few reasons not to jump into Killer Instinct.

Lots of updates and new content for one of the best competitive beat'em ups on the market. Excellent.

Why play as a run of the mill fighter character when you can play as someone from a different genre?

With each season they have iterated on the already strong foundation, creating more content and characters, all of which gel together in spite of the fact that it went through a developer change.

Even if you’re not a fan of fighting games the price for three seasons of content, this new game mode as well as access to the classic games is a win for anyone. If you’re looking for a good fighting game in the mix of many this will be one to pick up.
