18 October 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a great time to be a fighting game fan, with a plethora of big name franchises back in the hunt, HD remakes of classics, and even a wealth of downloadable titles available. Skullgirls enters this crowded battle and tries to stand out from the pack, but does the eclectic game succeed? Skullgirls follows the adventures of a group of powerful, driven women who all want to claim a mystical relic known as the Skull Heart.

Skullgirls Review

  • Summary: " Skullgirls " is not for the faint hearted. Do not let its pretty graphics lure you in if you aren’t prepared to sink in the required time to master it. Experienced fighting game fans may well find this something to give them a little extra on the side, and at the price its a great choice. With its hit box training and deep mechanics some players may even find it taking over from their primary fighter; but there is little for a casual audience.

  • Conclusion: I remember when I first heard about Skullgirls.  I had received a PR email asking if I would be interested in an interview with Mike "Mike Z." Zaimont who was developing a fighting game.  The name sounded familiar and I figured that it might be interesting to check out the game, so at E3, I spent a little time with the game and after interviewing Mike Z., I realized that there was a lot going on.

  • Excerpt: We need more productions like Skullgirls to grace the fighting game community. While I applaud the industry initiative to make certain concessions in order to appeal to a broader audience, this shouldn't come at the cost of compromising certain gameplay mechanics. Fortunately, developer Reverge Labs and lead producer Mike Zaimont agree.

In the adorable and carefully honed Skullgirls, eight is enough

  • Excerpt: There comes a time in some games when something so irresistible happens that you can’t very well not like it. Skullgirls has a few of those. When Ms. Fortune’s severed head latches onto an opponent and you first pull off a move called OMNOMNOM. Or when sexy nurse Valentine defibrillates back to life one of her fallen teammates. Or when Parasoul’s biker gang of commandos charges across the screen. Or when Peacock does pretty much anything that Peacock does.

Skullgirls review

  • Excerpt: in many ways pays homage to classic 2D fighters. Its art style and overall presentation show reverence for the heyday when numerous titles competed for the fighting game crown. Likewise, its fighting mechanics often borrow from the heroes of the genre. Once the final take is complete, however, Reverge Labs firmly establishes its new fighter as more than merely an ardent admirer of the craft. Skullgirls stakes its claim as a new star in the making.

  • Conclusion: However this makes it hard to place. Judging it solely on how it lives up to older fighters, I’d say pretty well; judging it solely on its art-style, then the game is nothing short of phenomenal. However, when you bring in the facts that the story line is quite short for each character, the character feel doesn’t differ as much as their visual styles might suggest, and how difficult is to learn to play the damn thing, you realise that the games beauty may well be...

  • Conclusion: To conclude, were there even the slightest concessions to moderation in Skullgirls’ aesthetics, and a few small but fundamental UI changes, it would be a superb entry-level fighting game which allows a player new to the genre to leap in and through practice become a master. But as it stands, the relentless sexuality on display is ineffective as parody and serves only to reinforce the belief that games are designed for young men who read FHM.
