    Ultimate Edition on PS4 and PC is the best-looking, most complete version you can buy right now, but if you already own Injustice on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, there isn’t much reason to upgrade, especially if you already bought the DLC.

    A brawler that's bursting with content and fan service, but held back by flakey online play.

    A thoroughly enjoyable fighter that marks out NeverRealm as a brawler developer to watch. [March 2014, p.63]

    PC version of Injustice is decent, but visuals and the code responsible for online multiplayer could use some tweaking (lags occur sometimes). [02/2014, p.71]

    The best fightning game on the PC market at the moment, period.

    Mechanics are flawless, thanks to Ed Boon, the co-creator of Mortal Kombat series, since 1992. The guys is one of the masters of this genre. The fights are so fluid, attractive, full of non-stop action; it includes all features a good arcade game needs. A ten outta ten. 10/10

    Music and sound acting? Another strong aspect of this game. The cast has Troy Baker, which is the harbinger of exceptional work. Soundtrack job is done by Dean Grinsfelder, known for his achievements on some other Marvel cartoons; like X-Men, Hulk, and some good documentary stuff. Nice melodies and bashing effects to our ears. 9/10.

    The visual art and the quality of graphics are just awesome. There's no FIGHTNING game looks better than this title at the market right now. So, 9/10 again.

    The roster for playable characters are below my expectations honestly. Ed Boons states that, this is because of the effort for creating balanced chars with logical attributes that fits to their comic book nature. I can understand that. Your favorite DC Comics heroes are still there; Sups, Bats, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Joker, General Zod, Solomon Grundy and vice versa. 8/10 anyway.

    Last, but not least, the multiplayer gameplay is above the standarts of Mortal Kombat 9, the previous title of Netherrealms. There are games out there, with better lag management than Injustice, but this game is at zenit in its category of fightning games. And the guys at Warner Bros are constantly watching the forums on Steam and their official board, taking the feedback from players at a serious level, and releasing patches nearly every week, to get the online action at the best level possible. The biggest visible problem was the empty rooms of lobbies, which was because of regional lock. Now they fixed it with the latest patch. This of effort of theirs, and the current status of the multiplayer deserves a 7,5/10.

    As my last appeal, Injustice is the best fightning game on PC, and one of the best of its genre including all platforms like XBOX, PS. It's in the same league with Street Fighter 4, Tekken 6; trust me.

    My final score in this critic for IGAUUE is 8.7/10. But I'm giving it a 10 here, to make sure that it gets closer to the point it deserves.

Someone will say that this game is bad just because it's clone but.... This game is amazing! I enjoyed every hour of playing it. We have lots of playable characters (like Batman, Flash or Superman) great graphic, quite good storyline (it's not very good but oh well, it is fighting game) and interactive areas. If you like MK you will love this game. Expand

    For someone who isn't too familiar, or very good at fighting games, 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' was surprisingly easy for me to get the hang ofFor someone who isn't too familiar, or very good at fighting games, 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' was surprisingly easy for me to get the hang of once I battled a few opponents. Most fighting games I play just aren't that interesting to me, and that's mostly due to the fact that memorizing button combinations, and taking the time to find a player that I like isn't a journey that I'm willing to take, majority of the time. And it's that reason, and that reason alone why only a few fighting games such as 'Smash Bros, Power Stone' and few others really stand out to me as being highly memorable.

    But with 'Gods Among Us', I found myself landing combination after combination early on, almost as if the control scheme was tailored for button mashers, and unskilled fighters to catch on quickly, and it kept me interested and playing long enough to actually get halfway decent at the game. Now maybe all of that is just some stuff that I made up in my brain, or maybe it's not, but 'Injustice' is one of the few fighting games I have actually enjoyed in recent years.

    Another aspect of this game that I enjoyed way more than I thought I would, was the story. Most new age fighting games create some strangely flowing plot that barely makes sense to explain all of the fighting, and this game is no different, but it worked nonetheless. There's just something about an evil 'Superman' that really gets my blood boiling. If you're like me, and have a difficulty getting into most fighting games, but would like to, consider picking this one up.

High Voltage clearly answered me that the fault was Warner Bros games who did an horrible job for the port. That critical problem have been there since day 1 of the release and absolutely nothing have been done yet even if there are legions of players on the discussion forums that complain about not having access to the main feature of the game.

    This game do not deserve a single of your penny.
