Comic Characters Beat Each Other Up...Need I say more?darkhorse441 | Feb. 17, 2016 | See all darkhorse441's reviews »
Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game featuring DC characters. But how is it? Well let’s break it down: Gameplay: It’s a fighting game, and a darn good one. The characters are all balanced and there’s a character for every fighting style. The game also adds some nifty features to the genre, such as the ability to wager part of your power to cause extra damage, interacting with the environment, or the ability to beat your enemy into another stage. The AI while playing against the computer can go from ridiculously easy to controller-smashingly hard depending on the setting. To prolong the game’s duration, the S.T.A.R Labs missions are added, but are frankly kind of useless. Overall, Injustice is a very solid fighting game. Graphics: The graphics are honestly good. Sometimes character’s faces or designs are a little strange, but overall I have no complaints. I was able to run the game on maximum settings with little or no lag and it looked good, especially the backgrounds. Story: For a fighting game, the story is surprisingly decent. It feels very much part of the DC universe with its stories of alternate universes and wacky excuses to explain how for example. Green Arrow can survive getting beaten up by Superman. The game even has a tie-in comic that has been running for years, so that should show how good the story is. Gameplay Experience: I had no significant lag, bugs, or crashes during gameplay. However, I have not played online. I have heard that the PC port has one of the worse online multiplayer experiences of the WB Games catalog, which is saying something. However, if you want the game to play alone or side by side with a friend, go ahead and get it. For the usual cost of the game, which comes complete with all DLC, it’s worth a play.
Pretty decent fighter, good amount of fun to be had.bullkrieg | Jan. 23, 2016 | See all bullkrieg's reviews »
I actually bought this game for the story which was pretty interesting, I totally got sucked into it. But the fighting itself is quite fun as well, the characters are balanced well and the abilities are inspired and fun to use. Playing through the single player was a great time. I don't really see myself coming back to the game again and again but it was a solid buy and I enjoyed my time with it a lot.

I really enjoyed this game, but I have always followed these characters in their comic books. The story was pretty solid, not exactly groundbreaking, but it kept the game moving. I ended up playing with a controller, the keyboard and mouse wasn't comfortable for me. The arena interactions brought variety, and I appreciated that your score depended on how well you utilized your environment and skill-sets. After the main game, the STAR lab missions didn't exactly keep me interested. I stuck around to earn some achievements, but it didn't completely envelope me after the main story. The main game took me around 6-8 hours.
PC port is good bit its better if you have a controllerdannie1993 | July 15, 2015 | See all dannie1993's reviews »
As all fighting games go they keyboard is not a great way to play. This game is no different and if you want the best experience I suggest using a controller. The graphics settings are great and if you have a powerful enough PC it will look pretty good. Although is it just me or does superman look a bit awkward in this game? Overall it plays pretty much the same as MK9 except for the blocking style, here you go back to block instead of holding a button. In terms of fighting mechanics if you like MK9 you are gonna like this but just like MK9 the character movements are a bit on the clunky side.

I love this game . I'm a huge fan of the DC universe. and I love fighting games. I would always play this at my friends house, so when I saw this on sale for $5 dollars, I instantly decided to buy it. It's still the same great game on consoles, but there is one major issue with this game is that it's on pc. There are no graphic options to tweak at all, besides resolution and fullscreen. The controls are the worst part, as you HAVE to use the keyboard for a fighting game. If you buy this, buy an external controller. Other than that, it's a great game with a very good story and great mechanics. The game is fairly balanced and it's easy to become good at. Every character is fun to play as, and all have great designs. Overall, I recommend this game, just get a controller with it.
