"People you love tend to blow up, don't they?"
21 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That's what turned Superman into one of the most evil dictators ever. Forget Nero, Hitler, Napoleon Bonaparte, and those others. Try imagining having a nearly indestructible man as your leader. Make him a not-very-nice man. Then make him someone that used to be a hero to you, but grief and loss turned him into a man as insane as The Joker. But more powerful. Would you want to kill him? Would you try to end his reign? Then take into consideration the fact that Kryptonite probably costs near a billion dollars on the black market. By then you probably would have lost all hope. That's the situation we are all currently in in a parallel universe. That's the DC Theory.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is one of the most brilliantly-conceived, gloriously-animated video games out there. The fighting style is swift and the moves are beautiful. As difficult as the combos are to learn, once they are applied correctly, the result can be spectacular.

The Story is surprisingly inventive and moving for a video game; I almost wished DC had decided to make it into a movie instead. The Story uses the intriguing idea of different universes. In the DC universe we know and love, everything is familiar. The Joker is terrorizing the Justice League (and the world) with another of his maniacal Metropolis-destroying schemes. We see an all-out war going on between DC's best known superheroes and not-so-super-villains. As Flash and Green Arrow observe the more-powerful heroes (Superman, Wonder Woman) fighting the most menacing villains (Doomsday, etc.), Arrow calls them gods. Flash responds, "What does that make us?" Arrow replies cleverly, "The people that clean up the mess." Throughout the game--which can almost be called a movie--such trivial dialogue occurs.

Not to long into the game, a mind-blowing plot point occurs. A few of the members are transported into another universe--one that appears to be a lot like ours, with other versions of themselves. Although it appears to be a lot like ours, it is in contrast almost the opposite. Sure, Lex Luthor and Superman are still enemies...but their roles are reversed. Instead, though, Superman isn't struggling to become president...he is pretty much Supreme Ruler of the entire world...except for Atlantis.

One funny moment is when Cyborg is accidentally transported to the other universe (after all the others) and eavesdrops upon Lex Luthor's conversation with Deathstroke about defeating Superman. Cyborg then charges in and fights them, only to find out after beating them that he is on the same side as they.

The rest of the game is just as exciting, with funny moments, tragic moments, epic moments, and definitely some thought-provoking moments. Throughout the game it is appalling to see Superman--one of our greatest heroes--trying to bring upon us what he considers "world peace". Here it's really just a fancy word(s) for world destruction.
