This game is the perfect example of how you simplify a fighting game to its roots while maintaining all the depth and metagame intact.
Lethal League is a 3 button game (Hit, jump, stall/counter) where your goal is to hit your opponent with a ball, the ball builds speed with each hit and you have to be in the proper position to hit it back to your opponent while trying to not get hit by it.
There's a limited roster of characters but all of them are very unique, no character plays exactly the same which makes every matchup very fun.
This game also has a superb sountrack and an amazing netcode (GGPO) with up to 4 player online multiplayer.
This is one of the most fun games i've played in a really long time, however there is a huge con to all of this, the game's asking price is $13.99 USD...
Sure, that isn't much, right? it's the price of "X" or "Y" so it's not a big deal yadda yadda. However the game is truly lacking on the SP content, there's only a mode where you play against the CPU and a pretty barebones "Challenge mode" (Arcade mode) so there really isn't much outside of playing it against other people and even thought that's the main point of fighting games there's so many other games (Skullgirls, KOF) that at least cover a bare minimum of a Story Mode and a proper Arcade mode while also having very good tutorials (Skullgirls) and really good challenge modes (KOF Trials) both which have been in multiple sales for less than half the price of this game.
The game is virtually dead on arrival, very much like Divekick (Even though Lethal League is incredibly better on every single aspect). It's almost impossible to find an online match because no one really is playing it and the price tag does not help the situation and it's a HUGE shame, because this could've been a smash hit that everyone would be talking about.
Bottom line, this is one of the best fighting games you could ever play if you're either a veteran or a beginner, but i can't recommend this to everybody because the current price tag is not really justified, wait for a sale and buy it, maybe then more people will be playing it after they discover how amazing this game is.
