On Saturday, a handful of my friends came over to my apartment. One of them brought along newly released Injustice: Gods Among Us. We began playing the story and much to our surprise were immediately intrigued by the depth of the story a (for fighting game, at least). Seeing your favorite super heroes become super villains isn't necessarily the most unique idea, but the story is blockbuster-y enough to warrant the 4 to 5 hours straight it took to finish the story line. On more than one occasion we had to verbally refresh ourselves on where the story had taken us and where exactly we were taken across the universe.
Even after beating the game in one sitting Saturday night, I went to Best Buy today to buy the game for myself on Sunday. I'm the first to admit that I'm not the best at fighting games by any means, but Injustice does a fantastic job of introducing unfamiliar fighters to the genre while still layering in the mechanics that would make any enthusiast grin. Picking from a handful of the biggest DC heroes and villains certainly adds a layer of appeal to me as well.
I've only spent about 2 or so hours practicing my skills outside of the singleplayer campaign. If you'd like to clash in a few practice rounds against me, feel free to send me an invite on Xbox Live.
