I am not a big fan of MK combat system but I love the DC universe.
The game core mechanic is similar to MK but with a few differences, definitely made it original and great fun to play.
Gave 5 stars as the previous reviewer gave a 1 just because of the demo and it is not fair in my opinion.
Overall I would rate this game a 3.5 star or maybe 4.
The premises for the game are good, characters are well balanced and fun to play but the story gets so absurd that suspension of belief is the only thing that keep you going and that is a lot if you think we are talking of super heroes.
Even if the story turn in a parody I have to admit I had fun, well worth playing for the hard core fighting game fans beside, a fighting game with a good story mode seems like a contradiction in terms.
The game lack of a serious tutorial, especially for the advanced moves and combo so, inexperienced players will have hard times or turn to buttons mashing to try to keep going.
All in all you should check it out, if you like fighting games and especially if you are a DC fan.
PS: Far better than the predecessor.
From what I've played I've really enjoyed this game, since MK9 in 2011 I was scared it was going to be just MK moves with new skins but it really isn't! They have re done all and all characters feel distinct! And the interactive environments are great, for serious fighters you have the option to turn the scenes to different areas so it doesn't take you out the flow aswel, there are extra I think abit corny like playing as cat women's cat, but other than that great game, great fighter!! Nothing like the media oak MK VS DC back on the old consoles.
I felt compelled to write a review for this game given that the only other review was utter garbage (I can understand if it's not to a persons taste but 1 star?! Just no). This game takes what made Mortal Kombat so great and builds upon it with more responsive controls and a brilliant use of the DC Comics license. I've been playing the demo on and off for a week and i'm still not bored. That's because there's so much to learn about how to use each character and they each have their own strengths and weaknesses. My one and only gripe may be that the use of objects in the stage as weapons may not be suitable for those looking to play this game at a competetive level but this should take nothing away from the game as you can turn this option off completely. Injustice looks set to be one of the finest fighting games avaliable, better by far than Mortal Kombat in my opinion. It's a purchase that no fighting game or DC Comics fan should be without.
