There is a lot of hype surrounding this game and the sequel for it though I won't get into the sequel here as this is solely about this game. It is really fun, after all who wouldn't want to pick their favorite DC hero just to beat the snot out of all of the others? In that respect, this game earns full marks as it does just that in style. The only reason I couldn't give the game 5 stars though is the fighting system seems a little on the sluggish side to me and not as fluid as it could be. It is still an awesome game that I would easily recommend if you are a DC or superhero fan.
Probably the best beat 'em up of the last years. In terms of gameplay, Netherrealms has a lot of fun with the interactive environment compared to Mortal Kombat and the story is a real highlight for DC fans. Regarding the graphics, you can also not complain: Detailed character models and smart animated backgrounds loosely compensate the occasionally occuring clipping errors and otherwise I have found so far no further bugs. In this respect, a unqualified recommendation for all fans of this genre.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is a good fighting game, clearly heir to the Mortal Kombat with which it shares not only company of programmers but most of the mechanics. The combat is, however, more relaxed in this case, with fewer characters with the ability to teleport and make unforeseen attacks, which will cheer each other (like me) no. If you notice the slight improvement in a much higher degree of interaction with the battlefield (not only on the aesthetic level, but you have weapons and objects to use in combat) as well as the new combat betting system that adds Enough interest. The campaign, however, is shorter than that of Mortal Kombat, although it still has bigger tournaments and trials than completing.
NetherRealm's "Injustice" isn't nearly as good their 2011 rendition of "Mortal Kombat", but it is a solid fighting game. It's certainly an improvement over the 2008 crossover title "Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe". Ed Boon and his team of developers have made an over-the-top combat title that perfectly captures the look of epic superhero battles. One of the game's strengths is that each character feels different thanks to their own unique moves and abilities. It's also a highly accessible fighter with easy-to-learn controls and simple combos. While "Injustice" does include a good campaign and plenty of unlockables, its lack of depth is what keeps it from being truly great. I own the PS3 version of the Ultimate Edition and it's a must-have for both MK and DC fans. All the post-launch DLC content is included on the disc. There are over 60 character-specific challenges, over 30 skins and 6 extra fighters. General Zod, Martian Manhunter, Lobo, Batgirl, Zatanna and MK's Scorpion are great additions to the main roster. Plenty of the skins are recreations of character designs from classic storylines, the New 52 and even Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel". Visually, the game looks fantastic with top-notch CGI-produced character entrances. The Super Moves are also spectacular, though you'll see them more than you want. "Injustice" is a fighter that plays like fan service. It'll please the die-hard DC Comics fans, but fans who want a deep experience should look elsewhere. This is an arcade fighter that is fast and fun, but will probably get old quick for those who like more technical fighting games. I'd give it an 8.2 out of 10.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is a two-dimensional fighting game in which the most characteristic thing is that we play as popular heroes and villains known from numerous comic books and films located in the DC Universe. The studio responsible for this production is the NetherRealms, the same guys who made the successful reboot Mortal Kombat series so we know we're on the right track here. The version available on Steam, the Ultimate edition includes the basic version of the game along with all released add-ons. Very solid title if you're int DC.
