Review: Injustice: Gods Among Us (iOS)
by Chris Carter

Injustice: Gods Among Us is finally here home consoles, and if you haven't had a chance to experience it yet, there is an iOS version available for free.

To be clear, this is not a full fighting game experience in the slightest. But, if you don't mind tapping a lot, beating up a bunch of dudes on the go can be pretty fun. While Injustice iOS technically is a fighting game, it features auto-movement that essentially makes it a Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots simulator -- oh, and it has card elements.

Wait, where are you going? It's not that bad!

Review: Injustice: Gods Among Us
by Allistair Pinsof

When DC Comics’ most popular heroes and villains appeared in 2008’s Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, Aquaman was nowhere to be found. Thought of as a laughing stock with a shaky history in videogames -- the less said about Battle for Atlantis, the better -- Aquaman was tossed aside. Now, Aquaman is a total badass. Injustice shows a lot has changed in the world of DC since 2008. It also shows there is a lot that can still be changed in fighting games.

For a game weighted down by genre conventions that are further imposed by fictional characters that have been around longer than most of our lifetimes, Injustice is full of the type of grand ideas we stopped seeing in fighting games since the late '90s. Whether it becomes embraced by EVO players or not, it's a nice shot in the arm for a genre that often feels niche to a fault.

Injustice is not replacing Mortal Kombat. It's building something new.
