The game is a lot of fun. After Evo 2022 I wanted to play it myself. For a fighting game, it's rather easy to get into as a beginner. Key arrived fast and without any issues

Greater than the sum of its parts

This is a frenetic technical fighting game. I normally would not care much for something in this genre, how're this game has such great music, character design, and overall visual charm that once it was on sale I had to buy it. I stuck at it, but I truly enjoy it and it is engaging enough to keep me on board to get better.

This game is fantastic looking and has a great soundtrack. As well as being a good start to get into fighting games because it has a comprehensive tutorial on quite literally everything in it. And that goes from basic fighting game mechanics to some intricate systems, and how to incorporate that into combos.
