12. Killer Instinct
Metacritic Score: 73
The classic fighting game from the ‘90s is back in an all-new Xbox One exclusive, with much better graphics and more intense gameplay than before. With a heavy focus on combos, this game lets you string together a series of moves into a torrent of pain for your opponent. The only catch is that the person you’re pummeling is always on the lookout for combo-busting opportunities that can quickly turn the tide of the match. One drawback is that the game only features eight fighters — a slim cast of characters compared to Street Fighter IV or Mortal Kombat – but it makes up for the deficit with tons of unlockables. Did we mention it’s free to play?
