Set in a DC Comics universe where the line between good and evil is extremely blurry, Injustice: Gods Among Us pits iconic comic book characters like Batman, Lex Luthor, and Wonder Woman against one another in classic fighting action. Injustice offers more than 20 playable characters, broken into Power (Superman) and Gadget (The Flash) subtypes, and gamers can unleash a variety of light, medium, and heavy attacks, or pull off special moves that are unique to each character. Matches are only one round, but characters must have both of their health bars depleted to lose.
Battles take place on a two-dimensional plane in familiar locations like the Batcave and the Fortress of Solitude, but the 3D backgrounds showcase multi-tiered arenas that are partially destructible and contain a variety of interactive objects. The game's story mode finds players jumping from character to character over the course of several chapters, with some pre-fight mini-games awarding special boosts during combat. Another mode offers more than 100 character-specific challenges, while multiplayer fans can join friends for a variety of different local or online matches. All of the game modes contribute experience points that can be used unlock rewards and alternate costumes.
