This review is from: Injustice: Gods Among Us (Nintendo Wii U) (Video Game)
I've spent the past week playing over Injustice on the Wii U and have been extremely impressed by the experience. I'm not a huge fan of the Mortal Kombat games and did presume that Injustice would borrow from the MK vs DC game, happily I was mistaken and the guys and gals at Netherrealm have really put something very special out.
Regardless of what version you pick up the game is extremely accessible for players of all experiences and with the training to get you up with the basics your be throwing up the combos like the good old days of Killer Instinct.
However I would point out that the real driver for me with this game was the story, while it's quick to complete (1.5 days) it was enjoyable and well presented that made you really feel that lots of attention to the original injustice story had been wrapped up in this fighting mechanic gameplay.
The various characters that you have to hand all feel powerful, for heroes and villains I guess that is the right thing to do, especially how strong characters hurl cars while lighter nimble folk use the objects to propel them in directions out of reach from the other player.
Graphically the title is hit and miss, some textures look extremely flat and dated while in other areas the game looks astonishing to look, made all the more impressive by the transition scenes, as you fly through rock or crash into fighting giants and then thrown back into the match, it makes each fight feel different with the potential for some unknown surprise to occur.
So why only 4 stars, because while it's a great game I think that it's not 100% it doesn't stand up to my all time fighter being Dead or Alive 4 and to me it's certainly come a long way from what Mortal Kombat presented us with before. You can certainly see this is just one of many games coming in the Injustice universe.
