What if the world's greatest heroes became its biggest threat? See what happens when heroes collide in Injustice: Gods Among Us for PlayStation 3.
When the Joker commits his most heinous crime and wipes out Metropolis – and everyone Superman loves, including his unborn child – the Man of Steel decides enough is enough and establishes a new world order. Batman and a few others stand opposed to this new regime, and the lines are drawn for epic battles like never seen before in a fighting game.
Injustice: Gods Among Us presents a world where the lines between hero and villain, and ruler and protector, are blurred. A hefty roster of some of DC Comics most iconic Super Heroes and Villains line up for battle, sporting new, unique designs to suit the changed world of the game. The full character roster includes
Each hero and villain comes with their own fighting styles, powers and abilities, all designed to be loyal to their DC Universe comic book counterparts. The characters fit into two categories – Power Characters like Superman, Wonder Woman and Bane who rely on their strength and super-powers, and Gadget Characters like Batman, Lex Luthor and Green Arrow who use weapons, armour and other items to win. Each character also boasts a "character trait", a special ability or attack that showcases . Can you master each hero and their god-like powers?
Mortal Kombat developers NetherRealm Studios bring their distinct fighting style to Injustice: Gods Among Us, presenting a kind of fighting game. A wider, cinematic story replaces the traditional ladder-based single-player experience, tying the wider story of the game into each battles. Gone too are the usual three-round battles, replaced by a single bout where each character has two health bars and a Super Meter. Charged by performing combos, your Super Meter will let you unleash your special moves, with a fully charged Super Meter letting you perform your strongest attack.
The Super Meter can also be used in special wager battles called the Clash system. Aided by individualised cutscenes, both players will secretly bet part of their meter, with the highest bidder winning the battle – and stealing the power from their opponent.
The battles in Injustice: Gods Among Us take place in a variety of multi-tiered 3D environments, each based on an iconic DC Comics location like the Batcave, Justice League Watch Tower and the Fortress of Solitude. These interactive locations make the battles even bolder, letting you use the environment around you as a weapon, using vehicles, buildings and more as part of your onslaught. Whether it's Superman lifting a car and smashing it on his opponent, or Batman firing projectiles to cause an explosion to catch his enemy in, these are battles that simply cannot be contained!
The original story of Injustice: Gods Among Us is split into several chapters, during which you will swap between characters as the story progresses and the battles escalate, letting you see every side of the conflict. There are also several mini-games including quick time events, the outcome of which can impact your next battle.Multiplayer options include King of the Hill, an interesting twist that allows up to eight players to watch rival players duke it out while waiting for their turn to join the fray, giving insight into the skills and style of the other online players. Plus, playing through each of the game modes, including those online matches with goal objectives, will earn you XP to unlock avatars and other cool rewards.

This is a great game for all who are into the DC Marvels comics. It has some of those well-known characters, Aquaman Batman, Catwoman, Flash, Green Lantern, Joker, Superman and Wonder Woman. I love how the game plays and the price of this game is really cheap compared to other sites.
Let me start by saying that this game is Great and is definitely worth buying for anyone who is interested in fighters or the DC universe. With such a rich and large set of characters this game is a must have for and DC fans. The gave developers have done a great job in balancing out the characters, so even a flight between superman and the joker can seem interesting. The single player experience offers several different modes for your enjoyment ,including Story, Battle, and the S.T.A.R. Labs missions. Injustice's story is surprisingly interesting. It's not the epitome of superhero storytelling that many fans have made the prequel comics out to be, but for what it is it's enjoyable. Overall Great game must have 3.5/5
Pretty fantastic game. There are many great characters to use and each has their strengths and weaknesses. The costumes are a bit of a let down with many looking outright bad. The good news is that each character has at least one good one with the promise of many more on the way. There is a very solid single player story that be played through in a weekend, plus many side challenges that take a while to master if you don't want to play online. As for the gameplay, it's good but not great. If you enjoyed MK you will feel right at home with this game, but the interactive arenas lead to some balancing issues. Coupled with the fact that currently (May 2nd) online is outright broken, there isn't much incentive to competitive play. Though they will most likely patch this. If you are a DC fan, it would be worth looking into. If you are a fighting game fan, it is a fair but of fun but some balancing issues mean that it's not going to be the next SF, MK, or Tekken. If you are a DC & and fighting game fan, Get it, you will love it.
Very solid fighting title. The interactive environments and interesting wagering dynamics make this something that stands out. As well its good for both combo memorizing masters and button mashers alike, so great as a new entry into the fighting game genre (or if you are an experience fighter than invite a friend). And who doesnt love pitching superman against batman?
