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.
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.
Killer Instinct: Season 3 is another solid outing from the ever improving team at Iron Galaxy Studios. Whether you've been training for awhile or you're stepping into the dojo for the first time, you'll find plenty of enjoyable content here.
