Superman: For truth and justice!

Scorpion: There is no justice!

DC comics characters in a video game. The whole crew of Superman, Wonder Women, Batman, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg and much more are in it. This is a fighting game published by Interactive Entertainment and Warner Bros. Released in the year of 2013, it is available on man platforms. Made on the Unreal Engine 3, it was praised for its story and gameplay mechanics under DC comics.

The story mode is one of the interesting parts of the game. It even got a graphic novel series based off the video game. It begins with the Joker drugging Superman in which he kills Lois Lane on Accident. Superman is then the main bad guy after killing the joker for it. He creates a regime of different characters for the story. Some of the cut scenes are very interesting between all the fights.

Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg, George Newbern, Carl Lumbly, and Phil LaMarr have all voiced their respective characters in the DC animated Justice League series. The plot of the game is similar to the two-part episode of the animated series Justice League in 2001 called “A Better World”, where the Justice League are sent to an alternate reality where Superman has become a tyrant and the Justice League have taken control of the world. The only difference is this version also has a separate faction led by Batman that opposes Superman’s regime

The multiplayer is very competitive. Timing is crucial. You need some practise learning all the moves in the game. Otherwise you can button mash your way to victory. The combos of buttons when learnt give you an advantage. Most characters have a in-depth range of useful moves that you can use in mid battle.

Still not have plated its sequel, Injustice 2. Apparently it is as good as the first one according to reviews and recommendations. The game was created by the same people who created Mortal Kombat. I liked this game even more than the Mortal Kombat games I liked. Sinestro, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter are my favourite characters to use. Must of logged in many hours with this game. I recommend this video game to everyone who like DC comics and want a good multiplayer game to play with friends

7.69/10

PS – I am a champion at this game! I should get the next one when it is cheap soon!

The Joker: Smile!

Batman: I am smiling.
