Skullgirls Review

PlayDevil
28 June 2012
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Excerpt: If you're a serious fighting game player, you probably have some contentious opinions about the people that make and play them and the genre overall. It's hard to avoid having strong opinions, especially when the games pit players against each other in the rawest of forms, where people are getting beat up on-screen in close-up fashion. This style could possibly be the core of everything that's good and unique about competitive culture in fighting games.

  • Excerpt: Lots of average nerds have ideas for games, but the fighting fans at Reverge Labs took those crucial next steps: assembling a team of like-minded folks and obtaining funding and publishing deals so they could make their dream game. The result is truly a labor of love. The first thing you’ll notice about Skullgirls is its distinct visual style. The (currently) all-female cast are delightfully subversive in their designs, from self-dismembering catgirl Ms.
  • Pros: + Unique character designs and stories; phenomenal HD hand-drawn animation and music., + A robust fighting engine that’s inviting to new players but has tournament-level depth.
  • Cons: ? Did Peacock just puff cigar smoke out of her eye…? Creepy!

  • Conclusion: Concept: Bring a hardcore-friendly fighter to XBLA and PSN Graphics: It’s a beautifully animated game, but the oversexualized characters may cause some to roll their eyes Sound: Battles are filled with plenty of quips, and the music is fantastic Playability: Special moves can be pulled off with familiar motions, although some attacks lack weight Entertainment: Skullgirls is fun for casual fans, and features plenty to appeal to the hardcore crowd Replay: Moderately High
