Superfighters Deluxe is a party game and a game that I and my friends have had a great time with. What is interesting about Superfighters Deluxe is that at first I hated this game and I mean hated it! The reason for this was not because the game was terrible, it was because I was terrible at the game. Let me start by saying that this game has a very steep difficulty curve, but once it all clicks this game is awesome!
Run, Jump, Shoot, Climb and Kill!
The game has a retro kind of vibe to it and that is cool, even with this retro look. They have managed to make Superfighters Deluxe a game that has a very cinematic look and feel to it and that is something I really do like. The gameplay is very fast-paced, you can move like John Wick and The Flash combined and I would strongly advise that you watch videos of the highly skilled players on YouTube as this will give you something to work towards.
Fun, But Hard!
As I said, I hated this game at first and that was because I thought I could jump in and play it like a 16-bit beat-em-up. Superfighters Deluxe requires far more patience, skill, and dedication than that. This is a game that is very hard to get to grips with, but once it all clicks and you are able to run around a level, punching enemies in the face, pulling out a gun and taking down a guy up above and doing it all with a smile on your face. That is when you realize the brilliance of this game.
Fun With Friends
There are three single-player campaigns and they are very well made. The AI is super tough so even that poses quite the challenge. I would say that the single-player aspect of the game is really essential and using it as a way to learn the ropes is the best way to look at it. Still, it is a fun experience. There are also plenty of single-player challenges for you as well which are fun and help sharpen those skills for the multiplayer.
The real fun to be had with Superfighters Deluxe is when you are playing with your friends either online or local. I had a blast with an eight-player deathmatch mode and lost quite a few early morning hours to it, there is also a team deathmatch mode if that is more your thing. There is also a survival mode can play with your friends where you team up against the AI and you can even play the campaign together which is neat, but not something I have done yet.
I think that Superfighters Deluxe is a game that for the right kind of person is going to take over their life! It is super fun, well made and the kind of game that I have spent a ton of time with over the last couple of months. While the single-player portion of the game is well made and a lot of fun. It really is when you are playing with others, especially people that you know where the game really does shine.
