The all new Omen of Sorrow title has been garnering fighting gamers' interests with its movie monster characters and intriguing story lines, and FOX|Justin Wong has a few introductory thoughts on it after playing for a short while.

The horror-themed fighter was released just yesterday, November 7th, by Aone Games, a young development company based in Santiago, Chile.

As a professional fighting game player Justin takes a specific look at Omen's mechanics. He seems to find them a bit rough around the edges, but then he still ultimately gives an endorsement, deeming the game worthy of examination.

He has high praises for the game's training mode, calling it "amazingly fun" though doesn't go into the specifics as to why it's so effective.

Justin does share the following combo with the character he's been using, the werewolf named Caleb, and we have to say it does look a tad lengthy. Perhaps this is a fairly special circumstance, but if combos are this long and this repetitive as a general rule, Omen may be a bit taxing to play.

We couldn't even fit the entire thing into a single GIF, if that's any indicator...
