Conclusion: Arcana Heart 3: LOVE MAX!!!!! is rated T for Teen with ESRB descriptors of Alcohol Reference, Language, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, and Violence. It’s a fighting game, so you do battle with punches, kicks, and flashy special moves. But it’s also all super cartoony.
Summary: Netherrealm Studios is quickly establishing itself as the new king of fighting games, particularly with Injustice: Gods Among Us. The studio takes DC's iconic heroes and makes them all fun and intriguing to play while taking the player on an engrossing storyline that is as appealing as the gameplay...
Summary: Injustice: Gods Among Us is finally here home consoles, and if you haven't had a chance to experience it yet, there is an iOS version available for free. To be clear, this is not a full fighting game experience in the slightest.
Conclusion: I had fun playing Injustice , but not as much as I wanted too. The combos and hits have a cadence and feeling to them that I’ve only found in NetherRealm games. It’s a sort of slower, rhythmic feeling and it’s not too difficult to pull off useful and reasonably powerful combos.
Summary: Injustice offers plenty of fun, if you go into it with an open mind and not for a fighting game with deep combo mechanics. It’s an easy to pick up game for DC fans who want to duke it out with their favorite superheroes. In that regard, Injustice is an excellent tribute to DC superheroes.
Pros: Easy to pick-up and play, even if you’re not a big fighting game fan because of easy-to-remember three-button combinations. The dialogue will make you laugh at times and seeing each character’s super attack move is entertaining. I particularly enjoyed seeing Batman call up his Batmobile to slam i...
Cons: Hardcore gamers may find the story mode to be too short, offering around 3-4 hours to gameplay – That’s assuming you’re watching the cutscenes and taking around 15 minutes to complete each superhero’s story. The story itself is somewhat confusing and the “Clash” system is a dud. The mini games ar...
Conclusion: None of this really gets in the way of the game however, except when you’ve lost to Aquaman and his f***ing trident for the sixth time and have “accidentally” smashed your controller into your TV. Despite not having enough challenging unlockables to aim for between the story mode and S.T.A.R.
Conclusion: Injustice: Gods Among Us is a great fighting experience that manages to welcome not just lots of different veterans of the genre but also those who aren't that experienced through a comprehensive tutorial. The story impresses and the mechanics are very responsive.
Pros: +Impressive story, +Great roster of characters, +Lots of attention to detail in terms of design
Cons: -Difficulty curve is unbalanced in S.T.A.R. Labs, -A few glitches in terms of animations, -Matchmaking needs some work
