    Review - Injustice: Gods Among Us

    Developer: NetherRealm Studios Publisher(s): Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Platform(s): Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U Release Date: April 16th, 2013 ESRB: T (Note: This review is based on the Playstation 3 version of the game.) So after several hours of pummeling superheroes and super villains the time feels right to construct a review. NetherRealm Studios newest project, Injustice: Gods Among Us, a brutal fighting game containing heroes and villains from the DC universe and boy does it pack a wallop. Right off the bat, the entire concept of this game made tremendous amounts of sense. Seeing as DC has recently rebooted their entire comic universe with The New 52, a fighting game containing some of the canon material of this new series ties in incredibly well. Because of this, characters and even stages are easily recognizable because of this, revisiting locations like Metropolis, The Bat Cave, and even Arkham Asylum! Firstly, the game mechanics themselves should feel quite familiar to anyone who has played the newest Mortal Kombat, and this proves to be a great thing. Combat is simple for newcomers to understand as well as having a certain level of complexity for the more hardcore. Frame advantages, recovery frames, active frames, and even damage can all be found from the incredibly easy to maneuver moves list. Characters feel and play almost exactly how they would be expected to play. Batman uses a bunch of nifty gadgets, Nightwing has his staff and electric sticks, Bane punches harder than the steel of a tank, and Green Arrow shoots...arrows. However, the roster did feel a little underwhelming after finally getting one's hands on the full game. Characters like Black Adam and Killer Frost may elude some players, while others like Martian Man Hunter and even Hawkman seem to be missing in action. In terms of content however, Injustice delivers big. The single player story mode takes between 5-6 hours to complete, and also follows the example of its predecessor in which gamers can sample different heroes the game has to offer. Albeit, it was a tad disappointing to play as Batman for two and a fourth chapters of which there are only a total of 12. It would have been nice to been able to play as a few others, or even involve them in the story a tad more. Sadly, by the end of story I felt a little confused as to why certain characters were even present. That being said though, the story wasn't bad by any means, nor are any of the single player experiences. Injustice allows players to first play through story, an arcade mode similar to that of other fighters, a mission mode where the player must complete certain tasks or win fights under certain criteria, tutorials, and of course practice mode, which is a highlight of itself! The amount of options the player can use in training mode is staggering, allowing them to see exactly where certain attacks connect, how much damage they do relative in a combo and so on. Oh, and there's also an online practice mode in which you can practice with a friend. Online mode feels about as good as anyone would expect. There aren't any crazy modes, no resoundingly incredible lobby features, just the standards, but that's good. It's a good thing to see a game not try and go too crazy, to polish the basics and do well on them, rather than have tons of extra sub par content. King of the Hill and Survivor work as they need to, but aren't overly impressive. What is overly impressive however was the fights themselves or rather the connection of them. Out of the 50 or so matches played online, only one, just a single match had button and input delay. That and after playing against what felt like the entire cast, it's hard to find one or two characters that can be defined as 'broken.' Sure there are things players do that make the character seem cheap, but it felt like no matter whom I was personally fighting, there was always a reason as to why I was defeated, mainly due to my lack of skill or misreading or misjudging moves. As players continue to trek through the different modes and challenges of the game they are rewarded with XP. Once a receives enough and levels up they are then given various in game items or keys that can be used to unlock extra costumes, concept art, and even music from the game. Players can also unlock extra emblems, character images and backgrounds for their player cards, just in case you didn't look cool enough beating Superman with Harley Quinn. All in all, Injustice: Gods Among Us may have played it a little too safe. The game plays well, works just how you'd expect it to, and feels well polished, but I can't help but feel it could have pushed some boundaries a little further. Perhaps this will change with the expansion of the roster of fighters as there are four character planned to still join the Injustice ranks. Pros: +Copious amounts of modes and game types to play +Accurate portrayal of characters and universe +Very few technical hiccups or flaws with game play Cons: -Played it a bit too safe, really lacks the wow factor -Relatively short story that relies heavily on the player having knowledge of the DC Universe -No Marc Hamill as the Joker! Overall: 8.0/10 Great Injustice Gods Among Us may not be winning any game of the year awards anytime soon, but it is definitely one of the most solid built games I've seen in a while.
