‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ Makes a Come-Back Thanks to Sony’s Freebies
Sony PlayStation has done a wonderful job of keeping with its annual tradition of offering its members free games every December! And this year, in December 2014, Sony PlayStation is offering ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us – Ultimate Edition’ as one of its freebie games! The only catch is that it is only offered to players who have Sony PlayStation Plus memberships. But that’s a small price to pay if one considers the delicious package of free games that players get in return.
So, since ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ is now making a comeback thanks to Sony PlayStation’s yuletide gift, we thought it would be a good idea to take a good look at the game and give players a heads-up on what to expect.
‘Injustice: Gods Among Us – The Ultimate Edition’: An Overview
Although this game is based on the fantastical and fictional superhero world of DC Comics, this game is decidedly creepy, ominous and frightening. And while the DC comics with the same superheroes and villains had definitely sometimes reached “ominous” level, and eve sometimes reached borderline “creepy” levels, it had never quite been frightening – certainly not like how this game is!
This game had been released in the year 2013 during different months at different parts of the world. However, in November 2013, the game was re-mastered and released again in the ‘Ultimate Edition’ version all over the world. This Ultimate Edition of the game contains all of the earlier released DLC as well.
The Narrative of the Game
The story or plot of the video game is separated into many chapters, with the different chapters starring different characters. As the story (or game) progresses, the player will have to switch between the different available characters.
Gameplay: What to Expect When Playing ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us – The Ultimate Edition’
This game, ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’, is first and foremost a fighting game. In this video game, players engage in one on one battles. The characters and backgrounds in the game are three dimensional and employ 3D animation. However, the planes within the game (where the battles and fights take place) are two-dimensional.
Each fight or one on one battle has only one round, even though every participant has two health bars. The control layout for the game uses a system of four buttons. The four buttons represent light attacks, medium attacks, heavy attacks, and a character trait button. The first three buttons, as the names indicate, control the force of the attacks. And the character trait button, when pressed, triggers a unique ability or an attack for the player’s character.
The game has a gamut of locations, such as ‘The Batcave’, ‘The Fortress of Solitude’, ‘The Watchtower’, etc. These locations have interactive environments and several regions. Depending on the class that a particular character is, there are objects in each of these environments and areas that the character can use. (The class of the character determines how each object can be used by the character.)
There are two types of characters in this video game: Power Characters, and Gadget Characters. Power Characters are Characters like ‘Superman’ who have powerful abilities – such as Super Strength, which (for example) enables this character to pick up a vehicle and fling it at his foes in the game. Gadget Characters, on the other hand, are characters like ‘Batman’ who have an arsenal of gadgets and weapons they can use – such as a Miniature Attachment Bomb, which (for example) the character can use to attach to the side of a building and cause it to explode.
