Injustice: Gods Among Us (Multi-Platform) Review
27 June 2013
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 itself. With great voice acting, very good graphics and tons to do, this is a game that sets the bar very high for the fighting genre in 2013.
Excerpt: The idea of taking beloved superheroes from the pages of comic books and churning out a fighting game isn’t anything new (Capcom’s been operated that racket since the mid ’90s), and it’s the second time NetherRealm has attempted to do right by DC Comics. Unlike Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe or the Marvel vs.
Excerpt: Imagine a world where the lines between good and evil have been blurred, where iconic heroes like Superman and Aquaman use their powers to control the world, rather than keep the peace. Well, thanks to the twisted mind of the Joker, this is one scenario that comes to fruition in NeatherRealm Studios latest fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us.
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. When you’re executing a combo and trading blows with an opponent the game is as good as any other. The problem comes in with the games movement, which feels much stiffer than other fighting...
Excerpt: I'll just come right out and state it: Injustice: Gods Among Us is everything you wanted and hoped for with DC Vs. MK . I admit even I was a bit leery when I recalled all the flaws the last time DC characters were put into a fighting game, but considering Netherrealm's last devolpment in the almost flawless Mortal Kombat , I risked it. And very glad I did. Because, put honestly, Injustice is a fanboy's paradise.
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. Labs missions there is a lot of content here, and that’s not even taking account all the hours you’ll want to spend mastering the characters before you venture online.
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. But, if you don't mind tapping a lot, beating up a bunch of dudes on the go can be pretty fun.
