From the company that desperately wants you to forget the first time they tried this [Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe], comes a game that finally lets you recreate the action figure battles you had as a kid - as long as you didn't own any Marvel toys.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Get ready to experience the fighting game you've always wanted but never really got, as your favorite characters from DC comics put aside all that tedious history and backstory and just savagely beat the life out of each other! Mortal Kombat fans rejoice, as Injustice brings you all the classic MK tropes we've come to love like brutal stage transitions; might-testing mini-games, fatalities and comedically unrealistic fatalities. All tied up with an awkward kid-friendly wrapper! But its not a complete rehash -- experience their one new idea in the class system, an advanced in-game betting minigame where both sides furiously button mash and you end up with a tie every time. Once you master the basics, jump into the game's rich story mode, set in a grim alternate timeline that makes the neck-snapping Snyder-verse feel like an after-school special. As Superman enacts super martial law after being tricked into killing Lois Lane and their unborn child by the Joker. Yikes. Then punches a hole through his chest? Yeesh. You thought Man of Steel took it too far...
Take control of an army of superheroes as Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flesh, Green Arrow and, uhh... another Batman band together to take down Superman and his super army by way of super drugs! Then play through as some of the most true-to-source DC characters ever pulled from the comics, while Superman does some of the most un-Superman-like things you've ever imagined like: training a militant super army; choking a bitch; snapping Lex Luthor's neck; breaking both of Green Lantern's arms; and burning a hole through the skull of a ten-year-old boy. Seriously, this is getting pretty dark.
If things are getting too heavy in story mode, take a break from the brutal head-pounding to a bunch of silly irrelevant s*** like: flying super baby through an asteroid field; good-cop-bad-copping; eating; jogging through lasers; a foot race; and literal cat burglary.
So slip into your super suit and get ready for the most pulse-pounding superhero action you can get in a video game, while getting bodied online by people better than you'll ever be. Scrub!

You may think Aqua-Momoa's going to be cool, but this is the least dumb Aquaman has looked in 60 years!
