When NetherRealm Studios announced that it would be developing ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ it set in motion an endless comparison between the upcoming title and ‘Mortal Kombat’. What NetherRealms accomplished however will make think you twice about what a fighting game can offer.
The framing device for all this fighting is woven into the story for the game. Most of the story has been built up by the comic-book series that came out before the launch. If you haven’t read the few issues that were released, and are planning on picking up the game, I would really recommend them. Not because you will miss anything crucial, but it does offer a welcomed depth to the narrative.
