Omen of Sorrow is a budget fighting game with AAA ambitions. AOne’s attempts to stretch it into something bigger don’t pay off and while there’s some enjoyment to be had, there are so many better, more polished alternatives that offer way more value for your money.

Omen of Sorrow is very funny game. But with theese famous characters, game's idea is totally wasted. Because combo and gameplay mechanics are just bad.

I liked a lot of what I played in Omen of Sorrow. I love the new takes on the characters pulled from literature and movies, and the combat felt good, especially the bold cancel systems. The animations felt a bit stiff though, and the story mode which I was most excited for, was a letdown. But if you're looking for a new type of fighter that does something different, then you should definitely check this one out!

All things considered, Omen of Sorrow is a very competent fighting game.

While the developers have done their best, Omen of Sorrow is still a disappointing game. Not only many parts of the game are lacking which has resulted in it looking unfinished and lackluster, but even the combat is not fun and fails to entertain the players. And the situation gets even worse when we take the PC version's deficiencies and irritating performance issues into account

Omen of Sorrow is basically a fighting game with a fair amount of depth, without the structure to support it.

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 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.

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 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.
