Buy it, Rent it, or F*** it: Injustice Gods Among Us

#1horror_spookyPosted 4/20/2013 8:44:38 PM
+Exciting story that actually gives a reason as to how Batman vs. Batman can happen
+Great voice acting
+Intense music that captures the epic feel of the bouts
+Fluid animation and highly detailed character models
+Incredibly hard-hitting action makes you feel powerful
+Easy to learn and rewarding combat system
+Characters are captured perfectly
+Super moves are awesome
+Transition attacks are especially crazy
+Wide array of single player modes
+S.T.A.R. Labs is a very fun distraction
+Game keeps track of your W/L record across all modes
+Level up across all game modes as well
+King of the Hill is a fun online multiplayer mode
+When playing locally with more than two players, it's a breeze switching between accounts
-Too much Batman
-Survival is more or less King of the Hill with only a single difference
-Alternate skins are underwhelming
-No unlockable characters is a bummer
-It seems like no one is ever playing ranked
-Graphics take a dip during cut-scenes
-No Martian Manhunter as a playable character
-Wayne Manor AND Wayne Manor Night feels lazy

Verdict:

Buy it

I was planning on picking this game up after it goes on sale or something. I don't want to add more to my backlog.

and also for one of your complaints people tend to not play ranked matches for a week or 2 after the game is out because they are learning their character.

^ this...except I'd say wait until it's down to 30. It should be there in no time really...most fighting games generally drop in value fairly quickly...this will be no exception.

i'm not saying it's a bad game, I'm just saying you will be able to save 20-30$ by waiting a mere 2 weeks.

Yea ima pick this up on a price drop. Never was a huge fan of MK, this fighting's similar. I dunno it's just too stiff?

General rule of thumb...do the opposite of the reviews the TC posts...The only thing really on his list that makes sense is how he rated Colonial Marines & The Walking Dead and they were purely niche games to begin with that catered to a certain group of fans (no real quality to the games).

Figured Spark would understand the difference in opinion that TC has than his, but hey this is GFaqs.

I say it's definitely worth the $60. Also it's clearly not gonna be $30 or $40 in the next 2 weeks. Ya both are way over exaggerating the price drop that will happen, but not that quick.

Also the game is awesome. Harley Quinn, and Catwoman are my 2 favorite to use online. Funny thing is I wasn't even planning on using them at all. My 2 original plans was to use Raven, and Deathstroke. I've only used those 2 once compared to how much I use Harley, and Catwoman.
