I started to play KI 3 days ago. I was astonished how good the game is… played Mortal Kombat X 1 month ago, and KI is a better game overall in my opinion.
In the first 2 days i used combo assisst, but then i read in other topics, one should just turn it off, and learn the game without it, and have more control over the characters in the future. So yeah, today i forced through the first 18 DOJO missions without combo assists. I have mixed feelings about it, in my first 2 days of playing i was godlike with easy to pull of combos and huge damage, but now im having a hard time pulling of something decent in real matches against the AI. Of course, every fighting game is hard to begin with, the first few days is goofying around, so i will be patient with it.
When i first saw the characters, my jaw dropped. I usually have no problems with characters in fighting games, but Killer Instinct is a new high point in this genre for me. Then i heard the music, its so good, im listening a few on Youtube all day (especially Omen’s theme). Its a love at first sight. Game feels and looks unique! And the combo system (with or without assist) is totally new, fresh! LOVE IT! Im still horrible at the game, but i dont really care, i just started today without assists.
I have a few small questions.
- Should i just read the characters stories in the main page? Or thats a spoiler because thats the stories we will get by playing the game?
- Im pretty confused whats Killer Instinct is about. There is no background story in the game, or am i missing something?
- The learning curve is high? Honestly, i feel its really hard, and people needs lot of practice to be at least half decent in Killer Instinct.
