Skullsgirls is one of those 2d fighting games that will remind you classic arcade fighting games. Most of the characters are female but each of them are so different between them that each time you try a new one you'll have to learn how to play. The story mode is simple, battles followed by dialogue and a final boss( which is really really hard to beat). Note that even if you play on easy , the game is hard to master and hard to learn also (haven't finished the tutorials yet). If you also love learning combos, you'll love Skullgirls as it provides great variety of combos, like classic fighting games. Note that a controller is highly recommended for this.

I have to admit, I am not a fan of fighting games, but this is the first game in the genre I have ever felt inmersed in. Considering it was made by an indie company (Lab Zero), the game has gorgeous graphics. Also, the animations are really well-made, which shows how much effort they put into the game. Gameplay is solid, with tons of combos, and a system that punishes players who create endless loops of them. The game may not have much content still, but Lab Zero is constantly working on patches, creating new DLC, most of which are free for three months after release. When it comes to online gameplay, you might have some lag issues from time to time. The Original Soundtrack is awesome.
Solid on the eyecandy, Solid on gameplay aswell.EDGE1812 | May 8, 2014 | See all EDGE1812's reviews »
This a great fighting game, honestly. I wish, I had more of excuses to play it.
Skullgirls is a 2d fighting game which combines a forgiving combo system (similar to MvC3) with a ratio system similar to Capcom vs. SNK (you can have up to 3 weak characters or just one very strong character). The gameplay feels solid,smooth and natural to fans of the fighting game genre.The graphics and sound are well-polished and the style is unique. It has the best training mode in fighting games i have seen as yet which will certainly make you better across all game in this genre. It also has the most sadistic last boss I have ever seen in a fighting game. Seriously, Omega Rugal and Magaki are shaking in their shallow graves.
But it if you are a fan of the fighting games genre.

The time I heard about Skullgirls I got impressed because of how the team is drawing with detail each frame of every character and I fell in love with it.
The game play is addicting and fun. The music is wonderful and catchy (Dat Under The Bridge Stage Theme)
And let's not forget that you are getting the upcoming DLC characters for free if you buy it now.
Definitely a must buy!

I got this on GMG for some Playfire credits without expecting much but after only an hour of playtime i was sucked in. Outstanding visuals, intuitive combo system and the art style are one of the selling points of the game (seriously, pretty much every moment in this game is a screenshot material). Learning curve is nicely balanced - easy to learn, hard to master. Just have in mind that the controller is strongly recommended
