One of the Best!!!
13 February 2000 | by weather-3See all my reviews

Killer Instinct Arcade is, really, an amazing game. Computerized cinematics are outstanding, the game is fun and it has amazing sights and sounds to behold, as this was just 1994.

Overall, it's one of Nintendo/Rare's crowning achievements, and one of Midway's wisest licenses. A high recommendation for fighting fans & cinema fans alike.

Or, if you just like Rare, this game's a must!
