Killer Instinct: Season 3
Top Critic Average
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.
Killer Instinct Season 3 is a great addition for the free to play series.
As it stands, Season Three is currently weaker than Season Two. For me, at least. I prefer total original content over gimmick guests, even if said guests play well.
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.
This review covers the Xbox One version of the game.
Killer Instinct Season Three offers up the best incarnation of the reboot to date.
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.

It might not be as high-profile as other fighting games but it has more than enough going for it to warrant checking it out. If the rest of its content drops are as good as this, it could end up being one of the better Microsoft platform exclusives.
