Omen of Sorrow
Top Critic Average
I love fighting games a lot, and I understand that many other people do. I think the dedication and effort it takes to craft a capable fighting game worth forming a community around is daunting. Unfortunately, Omen of Sorrow feels like it's taken a “quantity over quality” approach that results in a flaccid, broken experience. From the characters and art to the core act of fighting, nothing in Omen of Sorrow quite sticks the landing. There are a lot of incredible fighting games to check out this year, but Omen of Sorrow is not one of them.
Omen of Sorrow has more good things going for it than bad, the overall combat system feels fresh and new. The characters all feel relatable while at the same time being totally original. Fights can last longer than in other fighting games, not to mention the soundtrack is absolutely out of this world. But that’s where a lot of the good things end, the utter lack of content and the length of time it takes to actually find matches online really takes a lot of the wind from these sails.
Omen of Sorrow is an efficient and fun fighting game while in the heat of battle, but it trips getting to the arena.
Omen of Sorrow is a really good fighting game that works well and has some really interesting mechanics that change the entire aspect of the fighting game, but because of the price, it bring down so many other aspects of the game making it a difficult purchase to recommend.
Omen of Sorrow have quite a good gameplay, but the initial roster is limited, as are the game modes.

Omen of Sorrow is a solid game fueled by hardcore knowledge, a cool roster, and fascinating mechanics. I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store for its future.
I'm not saying Omen of Sorrow is a bad game in the slightest, I just think it definitely is missing a real personality to make it worth paying the $50. There still is some fun to be had with it and I think someone could get a kick out of some matches, but I think that's as far as Omen of Sorrow can stretch out its stay.
Omen of Sorrow offers a lot of modes, unlocks, characters, and some decent fighting elements, but it doesn’t quite have the polish or draw to keep me invested. For genre fans, though, it’s worth checking into.
Omen of Sorrow is a fighting game I can only recommend to those really looking to experiment with something new or are really big fans of horror. The combos are fun but are kind of shallow and get repetitive really quickly. The mechanics are pretty standard and can be fun but the lack of translation to new players kind of ruins them along with actually playing certain characters.
Omen of Sorrow is basically a fighting game with a fair amount of depth, without the structure to support it.
