    "A decent fast paced fighting game with many different features and a thriving community. Beautiful visuals, plenty of fan service and the best tutorial you will ever find in a fighting game. If you're looking to start fighting games and maybe feel overwhelmed by the genre as they are incredibly difficult as well as there being a huge choice then this game is the ideal first stepping stone due to being new player friendly."

    "I'm always looking for interesting new games on Steam, and Skullgirls was certainly an interesting recent find that really was unique. It's got all of the charm and appeal of the classic arcade fighters but with much more modern graphics and impressively smooth game play! As a gamer girl, I'm always in search of games that have strong female lead characters, which Skullgirls is full of! Can't wait to keep playing it!"

    "I have to say Brawlhalla is awesome for a 2d game. The graphics are sleek and I like you can battle with your friends (in a custom room!) , or random players. I can see 8 of my friends and I having a lot of fun duking it out in these fights."

    Divekick is a parody of the fighting arcade games like Street Fighter and has many internal jokes about this kind of games and their community of players. Divekick gameplay is really easy, you just use two buttons, dive and kick.

    "I was looking on Steam for a 2D fighting game and Divekick popped up. It looked very fun and I loved the art style, so I took a chance. Plus the fact that you only use two buttons makes this easy to learn and interesting to say the least. Divekick is a very intense game that satisfied everything I was looking for in a 2D fighting game. I highly recommend this product!"
