I thought this vid was cool. It shows how the in game music changes with whats going on during the match. Loving the audio design for this game.

Agreed. I personally love the direction they are taking this franchise so far. Fun to play+eye/ear candy+rewards for skill = perfect fighting game.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't find it all that fun to watch.

The combos are just very repetitive and bland looking. It's just lots of repeating normals over and over again. I know that's how KI always was, but it still sucks.

Basically you and the opponent never move in a combo, you just stand in one spot wailing on them over and over again for like 20 seconds. It has no flair like Marvel/MK/Injustice/Anime games. The only real movement is wallcarry, and when you get to the wall, you just stay there.

Like look at combos from Vergil/Cyrax/Zod/Scorpion/Shazam. They all knock the opponent all over the screen with wall bounces and ground bounces, teleports, and crazy juggles. There just isn't much of that in KI, everyones combos look the same. Glacius is the only character who is even slightly different, but all that's different is he just does the same repetitive combo from across the screen with out moving.

It just feels like KI came onto the scene with really flashy combos for its time, but it was quickly surpassed and one upped by games like the Marvel series, SF alpha, hell, even MK3-4 had some crazy ass combos. And now that it's back, it didn't really step up its game, it stayed the same.

However, only 3 characters have been revealed so far, maybe they will mix it up and go crazy with some other characters.

Have you played it? Being a SF and MK player for many moons, this games is probably the best feeling gameplay I've handled. The responsiveness is immediate, and the speed is really satisfying. IMO, modern fighters have just become too slow and reliant on "zoning" techniques that hinder the game rather than deepen it. I much prefer a game that rewards good reads and aggressive range play. And, for the record, MvC is abysmal to play, and even worse to watch. Just an all-around ugly game, IMO.

Nope haven't played it.

I'm only speaking on the combos being boring.

I'm sure it plays very smooth, it looks incredibly responsive and quick.

They aren't as flashy to watch possibly, but as a player, the freedom you have in your execution is very satisfying. Hard to explain, but it's much better to watch as a player than just a spectator. I loved watching all the Injustice vids before the game was released, but once I got my hands on it, it felt so limited and restrictive. The only real enjoyment I got out of it was working the interactables into my combos in online/tourney play.

The combos look a little bit like SF combos and furthermore they remember me to good old KI times. I like it :D

KI is an very specific Beat Em Up. I think, either people hate it or they love it.
I think, the most NRS fans ( especially the BemU community, which has not arisen before the NRS games "MK9" and "Injustice" were released) will not like it in the long view.

Anyway! Make your choice! :cool:

can anyone explain KI3's gameplay, someone give me a website that teach me how to play KI1 and 2, but i never play them so it's really hard for me to understand the games, especially KI3 :(.

The videos do a great job of explaining the gameplay. If you can't watch them, then i don't know what to tell you, Minh Giang.
