What If Our Greatest Heroes Became Our Greatest Threat?

Injustice: Gods Among Us debuts as a bold new fighting game franchise that introduces a deep, original story featuring more than 20 fan favorite, and other less well-known, DC Comics icons such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Nightwing, Cyborg and others. Set in a world where the lines between good and evil are are blurred, players will experience heroes and villains engaging in epic battles on a massive scale.

Challenging Yet Accessible Gameplay

Developed by NetherRealm Studios, under Ed Boon of Mortal Kombat fame, Injustice: Gods Among Us is developed with gamers of all skill levels in mind. The playable characters are separated into roughly two categories: power based fighters such as Superman, and gadget based fighters such as Batman. In the interactive environments of the game a power character like Superman might use his super strength to lift and throw an object such as a car at an opponent, while a gadget character like Batman might maneuver an opponent close to the same car, then blow it up with a tossable explosive. Characters like Wonder Woman Woman and Nightwing have hybrid abilities that they can toggle between. Regardless of the characters used, varied abilities makes each a possible match for the other, with their attacks broken down into heavy, medium and light varieties, and each also having a specific move that can be unleashed when the power meter that they grow throughout combat, is full. In addition, players can engage in “wager battles” in which portions of the opposing character’s power can be won as a prize for victory. Taken together these mechanics promise action that is simple to pick up but challenging to master, and and which adds a distinct gameplay feel.

Game was better than expected. Long Detailed Review. As a fighting game enthusiast, coming from Street Fighter 2, Original Mortal Kombat, to today’s generation of fighting games (Street Fighter 4, MvC3, SFxT, etc) I have to say that this DC Super Hero version has met, and somewhat exceeded, certain expectations.Now first off, I do have to say I didn’t have great expectations to begin with, considering how MK vs DC was a bit under par. But certain previews at least gave me some hope. I’m also not some elite player in all those games,…

Batman has Batmobiles hidden everywhere… check under your bed. I love getting the chance to play as my favorite superheroes (and supervillains) and I’ll usually give any game wherein I get that opportunity a try. Even today, after the Arkham games and certain others raised the bar for those types of games, they’re hard to pull off correctly. You have to make for a good game while at the same time having the heroes you came to see act consistent with their comic-book counterparts’ power level and moral codes. That’s easier said than done; if you’re going to…

Brian Reaves says:

Absolutely the best superhero game since Arkham If you are looking for an incredible Justice League movie, you have to go no further than this video game. The cinematics on this are simply amazing. The plotline of the game is simple: a handful of heroes are pulled into a parallel universe where Superman is bad and has taken many of the Justice League with him. While you go to this game for the fighting, the single player mode gives you the most compelling story you could imagine. I am at best a casual gamer and never sit down to complete a…
