Good job on the characters, voice actors and costumes. Could have definitely done with some more playable characters, theres plenty to choose from in from comics. Storyline is decent, cut scenes are quite long sometimes but are skip-able if you're not that interested. The fighting styles and arenas are really well done, although as in every fighting game there are some really annoying ones!
Saying that, it is a very bad port, could have been done better.

After bringing Mortal Kombat back from the dead (sort of...), NetherRealm Studios strikes again with Injustice! Set in an DC alternate universe where Earth is ruled by a dictatorial Superman and where even villains has to join forces with heroes to defeat the tyrant, Injustice is a pretty dark fighting game. The battles are brutal and even if there is no gore, it gets really violent (Oh my... that cutscene...).
The fighting system is good and easy to pick up. The developpers has finally drop the guard button mechanic so now you just have to pull the stick in the back direction to block attacks. Therefore, now you have to worry about cross-ups and things like that.
The story is cool and pretty long to complete. Then there are all the arcade endings and the Star Lab Missions to achieve. Online mode is decent too (Big improvement since Mortal Kombat 9).
The only issues of the game are the cutscenes (Not as pretty as the actual gameplay) and the quite overpowered DLC characters.
Hopefully, Mortal Kombat X might be very good.

Worth buying but I wish there were more characters and a longer story. It took me 5 hours to complete and the main reason I got it in the first place was for items on the mobile version. John Stewart and Hal Jordan have the same attacks, what's up with that? Banes KnightFall costume has him pressing a button which isn't even there. There are alot of other cons but overall worth buying.

This might have been made by the guys behind Mortal Kombat... And feature Scorpion from that series but that is where the similarities end as this is a brilliant fighting game in it's own right. The storyline itself is brilliant, there is a wide range of characters to keep any fan of DC happy and you can also finally answer the question of who would win in a fight between Batman & Superman. Once you have beaten the campaign, you will find plenty to keep you entertained for hours with the amount of options open to you. The multiplayer is also great and will keep you coming back for more time after time.

Ever wanted to finally pit Batman and Superman against each other? Or see Bane breaking Joker's back? This game offers all that and much, much more. Huge selection of characters (and some dlc ones which were added for free in PC release), easy to learn combo system and captivating story are just one of the many good things about this game. Although, there are few bad things which i would like to point out: not so great optimization (you will have to tone down your options a bit even if you meet the minimum requirements) and online multiplayer is not always responsive. But with that aside, game still offers a lot of content after you complete the story mode. Grab it on the next sale and prepare to sink a lot of hours into it
