after playing the demo a few times, Yea there is huge points where this is totally unrealistic to the DC universe. But the amount of fun i had playing it and watching the visuals, I forget the realism to the comic and remember "its a video game made for my entertainment"
that being said, get over it man.

I love the "In real life Superman would beat everyone" complaint.
all of these characters are fictional, and the fact that DC signed off on them using the characters tells me that they didn't have any problems with the direction that the story goes in.
get over yourself, if you don't like what the game is doing story wise don't buy it.

The overdramatic title will never help if you want people to take your subject seriously.
First of all, its a fighting game. If you would stay true to the lore you would break the entire game. Comic books themselves are famous for some of the most bullshit explanations for different things so i really dont understand why thats an issue now. If you are a comic book fan, you have probably learnt to deal with it by now.

For the DC hobbist/realistic I am sure there are inaccuracies as you describe in the move sets, appearance, skins, story elements for each character.
However, at the end of this is a fighting genre game that needs to be most concerned with creating a fun, balanced fighter.
So I'd take an excellent, balanced fighting game over a medicore game that got all the DC accuracies correct!
I loved the demo and I am certain I'll like the full retail version as well. My only complaint has to do with day one DLC, i guess it could be worse, tiger woods 2014 has 14 DLC courses (the irony) for $40 avi as day one DLC!

You do realize that if the game was more realistic, and Joker couldn't beat Doomsday, the game would be absolute shit. Only asolute idiots expect realism from videos games. If This game was completely acurate to the characters, everyone online would be playing Superman or Doomsday, the story would be terrible, and the game would be an utter failure. Not to mention the game hasen't come out yet, and Ed Boon has stated the fact that everyone is evenly matched is explained in the story. To sum up, stick with your "realistic games" (Non of which actually exist) and don't bother the rest of us who who like having fun.

There is some plot device in the story mode that makes people like the Joker as invulnerable as Superman, but doesn't give them anything else. Kinda explains most things honestly.
If any of you want to look for it: It is introduced in Green Arrows part of the story( fitting too since he is just as weak as the Joker).
i agree, when i saw superman punch the flash into outer space then punch him again back down 20 or so miles into the earth i laughed and said this game is stupid. a 2 year old would ask how the flash survived 1. getting punched by superman, and 2. how did the flash jump right back up off the ground after a 20 mile fall (notice i didn't even mention the force of superman's punch accelerating his fall and impact into the ground).
Gods versus humans, how is this going to work. It's insiting that gamers are such ignorant and drooling morons that you can make anything you want and people will lap it up.
I think nthey are right from the looks of this blog.
This game looks cool, but you just can't have batman stand toe to toe with doomsday... If Superman can't how the hell is Batman going to?
you only want it closed because you want the game.
these comics games would not exist if not for the comics characters and their history.
Mortal Kombat o.k. but Superheroes fighting other Superheroes is odd. Superman being hurt by anything other than kryptonite. Heh

The basic story that has kept comics going for decades is the underpowered character finding a way to beat an insurmountable foe and writers have pulled all sorts of bizzare or illogical explanations out of their arses to explain how this is possible. Why can't this be done in a video game?

This post is an EXTREME EXAGGERATION. The game is fantastic, I have it. Though you do make some valid points, they hardly wrecks the game, or impacts on gameplay. The only thing I can see that is CATASTROPHIC is your thought process. Talk about making a mountain from a mole hill :roll:

So characters taking unrealistic damage in a fighting game and getting up like nothing is wrong bothers you? Do you even like fighting games? Because unless you only play MMA or UFC games you going to struggle to find a "realistic one"
In Soul Calibur all the characters would have one hit kills because who can withstand being slashed with a sword 20 times? In Dead or Alive they also have destructible environments such as exploding floors, falling from extreme heights and even vehicle traffic. The very idea of playing a game involving "super heroes" which are made up in the first plase is never going to be realistic but its not supposed to be. It's supposed to provide the player with a laugh some intense competition and plenty of wow moments as you unleash your character specials or send your opponent flying 100 metres through walls etc.
Everyone is entitled to their oppinion but you are clearly in the minority here. I love the injustice demo, I've watched every gameplay and interview video from day one and I LOVE IT! Just because it doesnt appeal to you doesnt make it a "CATASTROPHIC DISAPPOINTMENT"
Cant wait to play the full game and have countless hours of fun with my friends getting in this awesome game Netherrealm and DC have created for us.

1. The creator of this thread is CLEARLY a troll. OP created this topic 12 days ago, and hasn't responded once. SO the OP either (a) doesn't care what anyone has to say, but judging by his very passionate feelings is highly unlikely; or (b) is a troll and created this thread just to make people angry.
2. OP's entire premise is flawed. You literally suggested Batman being unbeatable, except by who, Superman? Ridiculous. If followed to it's logical conclusion, every online game and versus match would have to use exactly the same character to truly test people's skill. Regardless, the game did everything it could to differentiate between characters in the way they interact with the environment. For a fighting game, that's about the only fair thing they could do.
3. The game is great and not a disappointment at all. The story is a little shallow and attenuated, but is still a blast to play and the exaggerated damage and game mechanics make you feel like you're truly in control of a superhero. What more do you want?

How can non-metahumans take a pounding from metahumans and survive? How can they muster the strength for one really powerful strike that sends their opponents through buildings and such? Kyrptonian nano-technology silly, it increased thier bone and tissue density by several thousand percent. Didn't you pay attention to the story?
