In 2008 a very strange fighting game called Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was released. Although it was a sloppy title, it proved one undeniable fact: playing as a superhero in a fighting game rocks. While playing, I found myself wishing that there weren't any Mortal Kombat characters in the title- I don't have a problem with them per se; it's just that Sub-Zero can't hold a candle to Batman. Luckily, I got my wish this year with Injustice: Gods Among Us, from NetherRealm Studios. I'm pleased to say that this game is incredibly true to the characters and even though the storyline was very short, it was still a blast to progress through.
If you're familiar with DC's stellar collection of animated movies, you'll feel right at home with the story. Basically, Joker's up to no good and he's ruining the Justice League's- and specifically Superman's- day. Without revealing too much, you'll be battling with and against some of DC comic's biggest heroes and villains. I must say the battle between Batman and Nightwing was a particular highlight for me. Also, what's up with Lex Luthor looking like Bruce Willis?
Besides the story mode being woefully short, another issue I had with it was unnecessary quick time events. They really serve no purpose other than distract you from dialogue or traditional fighting game play. Towards the end, you'll be playing as Superman and you're shooting his heat vision at cars from traffic being thrown at you. Superman destroying innocent commuters? Come on, Superman! Needless to say, these scenes feel clunky and out of place. Luckily, they're few and far between.
Unfortunately, some of the cut-scenes that provide you with the storyline look dismal. It's not a huge deal but it's worth noting. Occasionally, the textures looked flat out hideous. All is forgiven though when the characters themselves look and move gorgeously. From the Flash's jittery hops to Green Arrow's pompous fighting stance, NetherRealm was incredibly accurate to the source material. I didn't feel that any of the cast was incorrectly portrayed in the game.
What you really dying to know is how's the game play? Well, if you were one of the many fans of the new Mortal Kombat reboot that came out in 2011, you'll love this game. The combos work well, and are pretty easy to pull off but incredibly hard to master. With such a cast of fan-favorite characters it's hard to focus on just one. I really recommend that you play through the story and you'll get to experience playing as most of the cast.
