Injustice-Thumb

On the consoles, Injustice: Gods Among Us is a traditional fighting game where DC Comic heroes and villains rip one another to shreds in glorious 2D combat. The Android version isn't quite the same beast. These classic characters still despise each other, but now they're waging war in a 3 on 3 collectible card game.

Though the core gameplay is different, the visuals should still look familiar for anyone who has played the original title. Characters ranging from Batman, Green Arrow, and Wonder Woman to Poison Ivy and Lex Luther perform over-the-top animated attacks in fully rendered 3D environments. This is still a fighting game, but your cards help determine how well you can compete. Collecting them increases the number of characters you have to choose from, the moves you can perform, and the power of your attacks.

Injustice: Gods Among Us has already been available for Android in limited markets, but now it's launching worldwide. The game is free to play, but there are some in-app purchases to look out for. Not even Superman is capable of keeping those away.

    I love playing this game on my Wii U. I play it all the time.

      Obvious falsehood. Nobody plays the Wii U.

        I definitely do. I was just playing Injustice last night. I'm also working on Rayman Legends and The Cave. Super Mario 3D World comes out tomorrow. Can't wait for that.

          Just messing with you. I'm a big kid myself. Just bought the PS4 on Saturday "for the kids" (7 and 10). Love this next gen stuff these consoles are coming up with.

            Yeah, video games now vs. when I was a kid is just amazing to see.

            I'll probably grab a PS4 after the holidays once it becomes a less-than-hellish task to actually find one at standard retail price, and after there are some better games available. I wasn't all that impressed with the PS4's launch lineup.

            Considering that Mario, Zelda and Metroid are my favorite video game franchises of all time, I'll always own Nintendo hardware until such a time that Nintendo ever makes their franchises available on other platforms (not likely any time soon). But I always keep a Playstation as well just for the odd game here and there that piques my interest.

            I bought one on Saturday just walking into Best Buy. Asked them if they had any left. They said they had a couple left. And walked out the door with it and an extra console and Knack too. No huge crowds or anything. Figured I would get it now rather than fight the huge lines post-thanksgiving. They sold 1,000,000 in the first 24 hours. Amazing. Interested to see how many XBOXes sell at $100 more.

            I didn't want anything to take over the living room. Just a more powerful gaming console with Netflix, VuDu, Hulu, etc... And there are a few freebie games on there already for PS+ members as well. It's worth it.

            I'm so proud this thread didn't turn into a flame war that it almost brings a tear to my eye.

            And for the record, I also own a Wii U.

    Completed this on iOS and the Xbox. Gets repetitive on iOS very quickly and takes an eon to unlock stuff if you don't buy anything. Animation was really good though on iOS.. Will install on my Android device to see if it carries over my iOS progress as you log into the Warner brothers servers to play it and upload your progress.

    Note :- Its not just a card battler, its a full 3D fighting game but you get cards to increase your roster. Fighting gives experience points which enhance your moves, you can get ability cards which unlock new moves or extra attributes and characters, extra cards of the same character can increase the characters abilities.

      Yeah, I'm pretty blown away by how good the gameplay is. Miles ahead of the Tekken card game.

      its a bit of both and essentially neither. Its a bad 3d fighter. (Cos really all you do is tap the screen till enemy dies, occasional special move or char change) And its a fairly basic CCG too.

    This is far too late. Why it took them this long to get this out for Android is beyond me...

  • evertjr

    Android is equivalent to PC gaming. This game launched a long time ago on iOS and Consoles but it just came to PC and now its on Android. Looks much better and smooth on my nexus 4 than on my iPhone 4S :)

      Hi,

      How do u transfer your game progress from iPhone to android phone?

      Thanks

  • Rob Johnson

    Any chance it has cross platform multiplayer with iOS?

  • didibus

    This looks kind of nice, going to try it out

  • ginobili

    You've got to be kidding me..

    I'll have to try it, i hope it doesn't hook me.

  • Matthew Fry

    This has impressive graphics for a mobile title but that is all. The battling is extremely basic and boring.
