Injustice had some gore

Great game and very fun to play. This game is fantastic but violent. I have played this game before and the whole game was fighting but had messages about friendship. Common sense was right there was some blood. But besides all of that it’s still a great game.

This title has:

Great messages
Easy to play/use
Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Parents say (23):
Kids say (56):

For the most part, Injustice: Gods Among Us is a good fighting game. Fighting game fans and DC Comics lovers alike will enjoy choosing their favorite superheroes and villains, and trying out all their signature moves against one another -- in unique, destructible environments. And as the makers of Mortal Kombat, the team at NetherRealm Studios have crafted a deep fighting system that feels great, looks spectacular, and delivers powerful, over-the-top moves and combos that'll make you wince. The developers also added extra content called S.T.A.R. Labs missions (think Mortal Kombat's Challenge Tower) and a few other models like a Survival mode and King-of-the-Hill style match. Even with the few modes, there is limited replayability with this game, and a weak and sometimes confusing story. Overall, though, Injustice: Gods Among Us is a very good fighting game based on DC Comics' finest.
