7 / 10 - Killer Instinct
Nov 17, 2013

At launch, Killer Instinct serves as a solid foundation for what could eventually become a good fighting game. More characters and stages are coming down the line, but at launch, the game's limited single and multiplayer modes are glaring and will grow stale quickly.

Ultimately, Killzone: Shadow Fall once again falls short of the lofty expectations placed upon it.
