Decent Fighter with Awesome CharactersNShep53 | April 16, 2015 | See all NShep53's reviews »
I got this game for $7.50 on sale and for that price, this is a great game to mess around on. If you pay any more than that, it might not be worth it. The Story mode is okay, but the real draw here is the DC characters you get to fight as. Most of your favorites are here (Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, etc.) But a few I expected to be there aren't (Darkseid, Brainiac, Black Manta.) Framerate could be bad if you are using a laptop but it is a decent port. Overall, if you can get a good deal and you like DC Comic superheroes, then get it.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is an excellent fighting game with all of your favorite DC comics characters and an excellent fighting system to go with them.
Injustice: Gods Among Us takes place in an alternative universe where the Justice League has taken control of the planet (this can make or break your enjoyment of the game, so this game is not recommended for people who hated the “A Better World” episodes from the Justice League cartoon). The story is standard DC multiverse fare akin to the aforementioned “A Better World” storyline from the cartoon, but with more death. The combat, however, is anything but standard.
Injustice: Gods Among Us shows you it’s Mortal Kombat roots with the combo and fighting styles, but with added bonuses such as the ability to knock your opponent into certain boundaries that teleports both of you into a new arena after dealing massive damage to your opponent, and using what would otherwise be background details and props in most other fighting games to damage your opponent. How you deal the damage varies depending on the character you use.
However, what just might be the star of the show is all of the character skins. Many of these skins are references to alternative takes on the characters from existing DC stories, such as Red Sun Superman and Super Friends Cyborg, but several go the extra mile, such as Green Lantern John Stewart, voiced by Phil LaMarr, the original voice actor from the Justice League cartoon.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is a must own for DC fans, especially those who also liked Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

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.
