Graphics: good, but not great. The cutscene character models are dreadful, but the in-game models are crisp, with unique costumes and fluid animations. 6
Sound: While not particularly memorable, the music is still cool enough to keep you humming along. but the sounds of the actual fighting is fantastic. The hits sound brutal and the effects are quite good. And the voice acting performances are great, also. many jl cartoon actors reprise their roles and do a great job of it. 8
Story: the opening cutscene really sets the stage for a surprisingly complex and emotional plotline. Superman's twisted version of Gotham is creatively astounding. The characters are well-fleshed out, and the game is perfectly paced. Its really interesting to see how it progresses and to see who lives and dies by the end. and the ending sets itself up for a sequel nicely. 9
Gameplay: take MK's near-flawless combo and meter systems and add in a plethora of new ideas and concepts. i really enjoyed using the environmental objects and screen transitions. wagers are also a good tactic to use, while not completely necessary. The super moves are visually stunning and stylized, while also dealing tons of brutal damage. the characters are all fun to learn and master, and the combo systems allow noobs to immediately jump into the action. experienced players will also get a kick out of its many game modes and the complexity of its advanced combat. 9.5
if u can, pick up this game. its completely worth it.

Like me you may not be that into fighter genre games or comic book characters for that matter. Trust me when you get this game all that will change. You will master a character and then have a certain connection with the one you chose. This game is best described as easy to learn difficult to master.
If you are competitive you will find this game that much more enjoyable. What are you waiting for, get the best game out for Wii U!

I played the game on Medium mode and it took me only 4 hours to beat the main game storyline. We are expected to recieve DLC in the summer but ill leave that in the air. Also online fights are nice but there is no cohesive interface that can allow you to play with friends. Just random people over the internet.
It is not a bad game, its just not living the true potential for online.
For single player though, this game packs a punch and can keep a Casual gamer going for atleast a week.

A Fun, Yet Complicated Fighting Game

But this is one game that you will need time to get used to – the learning curve here is rather steep. On top of the basic moves and the combo moves, you have to deal with moves that let you block and escape some attacks, attacks that send characters flying all over the place, a showdown system where you make a bet against the opponent, and using some objects in the arena as weapons. This is one game you just can’t pick up and play.
The main part of the story takes place in an alternate dimension where Superman rules with an iron fist, and it’s up to some of the other heroes to get the needed muscle in order to bring down the Man of Steel.
The Story Mode takes place over 12 chapters, and each chapter revolves around one character – and four fights the character has to win in order to move the story along. I liked some of the story, and the voice overs were really good, but there were parts that felt excessive (where you go right from one fight to the next in order to make the four fight quota for every chapter)– or confusing (just who belongs in what dimension and who are the good guys and who are the villains?).
But it’s still fun to beat the heck out of some of DC Comics’ famous characters, and it wasn’t too tough for me to get through the Story Mode (some players may find it too easy).
When you’re done with that, you can take on challenges – like beat 10 characters with a select character, beat every character in the game, beat 10 characters within a set time limit, or start every fight at only 25% health
Or you can have fun fighting online.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fun fighter to play, and fans of the genre ought to go get it. But the leaning curve may make this game too tough for some players – which is why I say rent it before you get it
Stick to the other consoles
