In addition to DC Comics icons such as Batman, The Joker, Green Lantern, The Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman, the latest title from the award-winning studio presents a deep original story.

Fun but bad framerate on lower end PCcrazycrik | Sept. 23, 2014 | See all crazycrik's reviews »
WARNING - If you don't meet the specs DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!
this includes the graphics card. I met every other spec, but I have intel graphics. (I know...)
Usually I am fine with other games. but it couldn't run it. it is a bad PC port. If you greatly exceed the specs, grab it. arkham asylum and origins run fine.
Also, the online is completely broken. Netherrelm are releasing patches every couple of days, but parts are still broken.
Now, that being said, this is one of the best fighters I have ever played. It has a lot of obscure DC characters, but the whole justice league, batman, superman and green lantern villains, and people who I don't know. But why would they use killer frost instead of Mr. Freeze? WHY!?!?!?
The story of the game is really good. I like the idea of explaining mirror matches, and almost every character has a twin. I won't go into detail as to not spoil anything.
The fighting mechanics are easy to learn and fast paced, fun and awesome. The super combos/specials are the most awesome things I have ever seen.
(e.x. - superman uppercuts other characters into the atmosphere and then punches them back down.)
For multiplayer, play local, don't try online unless a patch is finally released.
Overall, this game has a great story, good fighting mechanics, and Fun local multiplayer but for lower end PC's the game runs in Slow motion.
Epic Battles Showdown!Azrael360 | July 13, 2014 | See all Azrael360's reviews »
First, I don't consider myself a "hardcore" fan of fighting games, just casual. I used to be, especially for series like Marvel vs. Capcom, The King Of Fighters, and others SNK games in the past, but never really enjoyed popular series like Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter. And since this game was played almost exactly like a Mortal Kombat game, I wasn't sure if I should get it, but my love for the DC Universe made me buy it during a sale, and oh boy, I'm glad I did.
This game is epic!, that's the word. Epic. The battles are a real show, the story is great, the control is good, and technically in graphics and sound is great. The game runs with locked 60 FPS, so if you don't have a powerful PC, most likely you won't be able to run the game at full speed, and maybe you will have to reduce the resolution of your monitor. The battles are fast, and as expected, they are very similar to the battles in Mortal Kombat, except for the gore. But having the chance to play as one of a selected group of the most powerful characters from the DC Universe, it's a blast. Really fun. Even The Joker is here... The moves and specials are really true to the nature of the characters, the locations are also well designed, big and interactive. You can use them to your advantage, by picking up or activating something to use against the other fighter.
As for the control, it's really good, easy to learn, and precise, except if you have a gamepad like an Xbox 360 controller. This gamepad wasn't designed for fighting games, so I recommend a proper fighting controller. If you can't, then you have to play very carefully to make the movements as best as you can. They are easier with the D-pad.
Do yourself a favor and try to get this game. If you're not sure like I was, then during a sale. It's worth it.
A Review of Injustice: Gods Among Usmrminecrafter1 | June 11, 2014 | See all mrminecrafter1's reviews »
It is a superb fighting game. On PC, it maybe one of the best options available . Compared to games like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, it is not better than those two series. But the gameplay is just marvelous. Interaction with the environment during fights is a really interesting game mechanic that works well. The soundtrack fits the game, but it is not something that I would prefer to listen to after a while. The graphics are pretty good but it is not the main thing that will wow you. The cast of characters to fight with are astounding, with plenty of good choices.
Overall I recommend this excellent fighting game.
Great Fighting Game, crazy fighting action moves and stuntsHighlander9782 | June 8, 2014 | See all Highlander9782's reviews »
This game is from the makers of Mortal Kombat, and they did a great job with this DC fighting game. The graphics are top-notch, and there are tons of characters to choose from. The maps or arenas are very visually beautiful to fight in and can be interacted with as well, such as picking up cars and throwing them at your opponents. You can even knock your opponent out of the map and into another area. The special moves performed by these characters are over the top and outrageous but great for this type of fighting game, such as Doomdays special where the knocks you all the way to the bottom of the Earths core and back up lol. Definite buy if you're a fighting fan and a DC fan.
Good game, but the multiplayer falls incredibly short.DivinitySquared | June 1, 2014 | See all DivinitySquared's reviews »
The game is a good one, the characters are nice, the combat is fluid and it plays well when with friends. The graphics are pretty good, the maps are varied and its fun. However, the sound is lacking, its not an amazing soundtrack by far. Something else I tend to notice is that the multiplayer is completely broken. You can't queue up online at all, and finding a match is incredibly difficult, so difficult in fact that people have to arrange to play with each other through other means.
