Skullgirls Review

PlayDevil

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: The barrier to entry for high-level digital pugilism is bloody tough to break down. The jargon used to describe how these games are played and how they're discussed is like an alien language to most, especially those who stepped away from 2D scrapping when Tekken arrived.
