Traditionally speaking, I’m not a fan of fighting games that don’t have Smash Bros. in the title. Sure, I played several incarnations of Street Fighter 2, but so did everyone. And like everyone else, I’ve been brutally maimed in Mortal Kombat. But since those games on the Super Nintendo, I haven’t bought any “traditional” fighting games. Honestly, I just was never that good at them. When Injustice was announced, I didn’t really pay much attention to it. So what if it was a fighting game with DC characters. I didn’t buy DC vs. Mortal Kombat after all.
But then I started seeing some videos for the game, and it gained my interest. The interactive backgrounds looked fun, the transitions to different sections of a stage looked fun, and the super moves looked amazing. Still though, it was low expectations that I downloaded the demo. And while, there wasn’t a lot to the demo, it was a good taste of what the game had to offer. And it also was the final thing that convinced me to buy the game.
So, I bought the game early Thursday afternoon (had a couple days off from work) and finished the main story later Thursday night. I don’t really have an hour estimate for you, but it wasn’t that long. But really, it’s a fighting game. What do you expect? But what there is of that story is fantastic. I don’t want to give too much of the story away, but it does involve elseworlds, which explains heroes fighting other heroes. And yes, you can assume that some of those heroes have turned evil because of events that have transpired in this world. Read more of this post
