Lights! Camera! ACTION!

Expert review by: Matt Mirkovich (



Fighting games as of late have become a dime a dozen. I don't mean that in a negative way, I'm just saying that there is a huge pile of fighting games that have cross my plate in the last twelve months, and I just don't have time for all of them. Each...

The art style might be a hard sell for some people, and if that's the case they'll be missing out on one of the best new fighting game franchises in recent memory. Here's to hoping that Reverge Labs and Autumn Games can release a "Super Skullgirls" in...

Skullgirls Playtest: A Really Good Teacher


Skullgirls' tutorial is very well constructed and contains valuable information that is not only relevant to the game itself, but can also be applied to any other fighter.

There are numerous references made in the game to fighting game history and Internet memes. Parasoul’s Blockbuster attack for example, will have her saying “One Million Troops” as her Egrets rush down the screen, Valentine’s Blockbuster mimics Dio...

I had extremely high expectations for Skullgirls. New indie developer Reverge Labs promised an exciting tournament fighter with a training mode

It is hard to believe that this game is produced by a small developer, only costs $15, and is downloadable. Not only does it contain most of the features of a full retail fighting game, but it does almost all of them better. Most critically, the online...

Skullgirls Review: Fluid, Competitive, and Full of Over-the-Top Fanservice


Skullgirls addresses many problems found in modern fighting games, but isn't without its own.

Any fan of fighting games knows that the genre offers a lot of options these days -- almost too many. With a new fighter poised to be the next competitive masterpiece coming out seemingly every month, each new contender needs to offer something to set...

Skullgirls Review


Skullgirls is a risque fighter that wraps sex appeal and smooth jazz skintight around a smartly crafted fighting system.

Well crafted fighting system ; Each character feels distinct ; Excellent tutorials that teach fighting theory ; GGPO still a winner for online play

No spectator and replay support ; Lacks character-specific command lists

Unfortunately, the game lacks some of the modern conveniences in other fighters. Spectating support is one, which the game works around by restricting room size to only two combatants. Replay support is also absent, which is especially unfortunate...

Fighting games aren't necessarily my forte, but it isn't hard to catch the charm of Skullgirls. What can be difficult, though, is grasping the hardcore, in-depth fighting mechanic that comes packaged in this artistic and mechanically inspired...

Skullgirls Review


What happens when you combine beautiful 2D art with tournament-grade fighting? You get Skullgirls. Find out if this is worth a download.

While light on content, the core play in Skullgirls works beautifully on numerous levels. Astounding animation dresses up its solid basics and the roster provides plenty of possibilities for strategies and play styles. And for those looking for real...
