Injustice: Gods Among Us has the same look about it as Mortal Kombat does. Each DC character carries him or herself appropriately; you won't see any of them executing the same animations unless you're in combat with your duplicate -- but I'm getting ahead of myself. Predictably, the violence has been toned down quite a bit to ensure a T rating, but the special abilities and superpowers look nice and painful for those on the receiving end. All of these well-known superheroes and villains are recognizable, and if you prefer a different look, there are several skins to unlock. Fighting environments are wonderfully destructive and interactive. As you'd probably expect, you have the opportunity to duke it out in the Fortress of Solitude, the Batcave, Atlantis, Themyscira, and more. These arenas are multilayered, well-themed, and rife with the potential to get creative. More on that later.
Injustice: Gods Among Us features an all-star cast of video game veterans (Troy Baker, Nolan North, Jennifer Hale, and Fred Tatasciore), plus a bit of star power. Batman: Arkham City's voice cast (minus Mark Hamill) returns to reprise their roles as they appear, but there are some surprises outside of that. Firefly's Adam Baldwin and Alan Tudyk voice Green Lantern and Green Arrow, respectively. George Newbern and Mark Rolston (Aliens, The Shawshank Redemption) reprise their roles as Superman and Lex Luthor. Legendary voice actor Phil LaMarr voices Aquaman, and Neal McDonough takes a turn as The Flash, as well as Nightwing II. All of the actors are working with some outrageously hammy stuff, and they all perfectly capture the spirit of it.
