IGN Review: 8.2/10 Users: 8.9/10
Given the success NetherRealm had with Mortal Kombat, it would have been easy to clone it and swap in new characters… and yet it didn’t. Instead, it kept what worked and built upon it to make Injustice: Gods Among Us an exciting, unique-feeling fighter at the beginner level, and a deeper, more interesting one at the advanced level. Story mode is a pleasant surprise, but the real reason to play is the thrill of harnessing the god-like powers of some of the most overwhelming figures in the comic realm. The jury’s still out on whether or not it presents a fair fight, but it’s definitely an enjoyable one.
