Quality 3D graphics, exciting game play, really addictive
Kills your battery, challenging controls, animation is a bit laggy
Injustice: Gods Among Us for Android is an intense hand to hand combat game against your favorite DC Comics superheroes.
Injustice: Gods Among Us pits superhero against superhero in this action packed, beat the crap outta each other fight club. Imagine, if you will, that the Justice League has a deep dark secret; deep within headquarters, after hours, when there's no crime to be fighting, all the heroes gather for some hand to hand combat training in the basement. It's Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman against your team of 3 heroes. So the age old question of who could beat the crap outta who is put to the test in this one. Last team of 3 standing, wins.
The controls are pretty good but very challenging. Just tap and poke your screen to attack, or swipe left and right to unleash powerful combos. There's a power meter on the bottom of the screen and you want to keep an eye on that for special powers and attack abilities that are activated during play. It's actually pretty hard to get all of your swipes and taps to register, and I was beating the crap outta my screen just as much as the superheroes. I think the controls need more refinement, but it's hard not to like this game.
The graphics are excellent; very vibrant, with lots of details and slow-motion effects which add to the overall intensity. The sounds are good and the music successfully creates tension and angst.
Injustice: Gods Among Us gives every little boy and girl, no matter the age, an opportunity to bash heads and go toe to toe with some of the most iconic superheroes ever assembled. The game isn't perfect, but it is fun. It'll kill your battery faster than a speeding bullet too.
