What If Our Greatest Heroes Became Our Greatest Threat?

Injustice: Gods Among Us debuts as a bold new fighting game franchise that introduces a deep, original story featuring more than 20 fan favorite, and other less well-known, DC Comics icons such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Nightwing, Cyborg and others. Set in a world where the lines between good and evil are is blurred, players will experience heroes and villains engaging in epic battles on a massive scale.

Challenging Yet Accessible Gameplay

Developed by NetherRealm Studios, under Ed Boon of Mortal Kombat fame, Injustice: Gods Among Us is developed with gamers of all skill levels in mind. The playable characters are separated into roughly two categories: power based fighters such as Superman, and gadget based fighters such as Batman. In the interactive environments of the game a power character like Superman might use his super strength to lift and throw an object such as a car at an opponent, while a gadget character like Batman might maneuver an opponent close to the same car, then blow it up with a tossable explosive. Characters like Wonder Woman Woman and Nightwing have hybrid abilities that they can toggle between. Regardless of the characters used, varied abilities makes each a possible match for the other, with their attacks broken down into heavy, medium and light varieties, and each also having a specific move that can be unleashed when the power meter that they grow throughout combat, is full. In addition, players can engage in "wager battles" in which portions of the opposing character's power can be won as a prize for victory. Taken together these mechanics promise action that is simple to pick up but challenging to master, and and which adds a distinct gameplay feel.

Key Game Features

  • A unique addition to the fighting genre in which an intriguing storyline pits the heroes -- and villains -- of the DC universe against each other
  • A powerful and diverse array of over 20 playable characters, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Nightwing, Catwoman, Cyborg, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, and others
  • A variety of play areas based in the mythologies of each character franchise
  • An accessible attack system broken down into light, medium and heavy attack, with each character having their own specific attacks
  • "Wager battles" that allow the winner of the battle to collect a portion of an opponents metered power
  • Deep multiplayer play options, including local and online play, as well as tournament support

If you like fighting games or the DC Universe, then stop reading and go buy this. The fighting mechanics are very similar to the Mortal Kombat series with a few twists. The interactive environments are a cool addition and the stages are plentiful. The graphics and voice acting are top notch. Warner has stated that there will be a patch for online match making and DLC. But by far the best thing about this game is the story. I was shocked by how good the story was, especially for a fighting game. I can't recommend this game enough. Thank you Warner for showing love to the DC Universe. How about a good Watchmen game?

A wonderful fighting game, it has a story mode and so many characters.

Previously some people thought for some reason that the Wii U will not have all the DLC but now it does - more characters, skins, everything.

Wii U version looks much better than the other versions, especially much better than the PS3 version.

It is fluid, vivid, and plays like a charm either on the GamePad, Pro Controller, Classic Controller or any other controller you can plug to a Wii Remote.
It gives you all the options in the world.

Buy it for this great price too.

If you like games such as Mortal Kombat and Super Smash Bros. then there is everything to love about Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Graphics: 5/5
Performance: 5/5

I got this earlier today and have been playing non-stop for 8 hours. I've played only single player and multi-player (2 local players) and it's a tremendous amount of fun. I haven't tried the online playing as I don't play games online so I can't comment on that. Injustice is a great all around fighting game with lots to do and I can see playing this for a long time to come.

There is an extensive training and practice module. In training it will take you step by step to learn all moves. In practice you can obviously practice and try out new things, see directly on the screen what buttons/dpad movements are registered by the system as you make moves, pull up a full list of moves, and customize the practice opponent.

If I had to complain about anything, there are only two minor things. One is that the win/loss counter doesn't take in to account who is playing and it continues to tick wins and losses based on the controller not the player. It counts wins and losses of both single and multi-player games in the same count so it makes it hard to tell who has actually how many games. It does not reset the win/loss count so after time the win/loss count doesn't really mean anything. If I find a way around this I will edit this comment. The only other issue is that it takes a long time to exit the game...about 1 minute. While its true WiiU games take some time to exit Injustice takes at least twice as long. Overall not a big deal for an otherwise great game. Hopefully that issue will be fixed with a game update (none yet for Injustice) or a WiiU update.

Got my boys (Age 9 and 12) and Wii U for Christmas and this is my favorite "Non-Nintendo" game for it. It helps that we are all big comic readers, but even for the casual gamer (like me) this game is just fantastic. It has several modes (like Battle Mode) that allow you to pick a hero or villain and start fighting other DCU characters right out of the gate. There is also a longer Story Mode that plays out like a regular game. Because my time on the console is hit and miss due to work and family, I really like the battle mode and being able to spend short bits of time playing a game and not having to invest hours on end if I can't or don't want to. I would recommend it to other gamers and say that part time gamers should definitely give it a look and consider it.

The game is very well crafted: with intuitive, fluid controls and an addictive storyline that progresses very naturally especially for a fighter. You can tell DC worked very closely with the developers, such as Joker is hilarious and Batman is very .... 'Batman-y', etc.

I don't really care about the no-friend online gameplay, because I don't personally know anyone who plays this game, but it sucks that this version has some slipshod presentation. You can tell overall they could have done a much better job integrating Wii U features with the gamepad, Miiverse, and touch screen in the menus. That really sucks, enough to take away 1 star, but the gameplay is still fun as hell so I give it a solid 4 stars.

Definitely satisfied with my purchase, however glad I waited for a price drop.

I'm what you would call a 'lite' player, and got this to play the short battles, rather than the whole story. However, I got sucked in and they have done a fantastic job with it! I love that there are lots of kick-ass female characters and that you can display the move list on the console while performing the battle on the TV. As someone with not a lot of video game experience this really reduced the learning curve for me. But even if you are a long time gamer there is a lot going on (as was confirmed by a friend who came over to play it). The graphics are amazing and if I am not careful I will find myself playing for hours. As with all Wii-U games it is a bit on the pricey side, but this one is worth it.
