The Biggest PS4 Games to Play in 2017
By GameSpot Staff on
The follow-up to NetherRealm Studios' Injustice: Gods Among Us introduces loot, character customisation, and items that give their wearers stat bonuses. If you have any familiarity with fighting games, you'll know just how bold--and potentially upsetting--this decision is. On the one hand, it could introduce replayability that few other fighting games have by letting players create their own, unique versions of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and various other DC heroes and villains. On the other, if NetherRealm isn't able to properly balance the hundreds of pieces of unique equipment, the online multiplayer could quickly become filled with the same overpowered builds dominating anyone that dares to not use the "best" characters and equipment. It's going to be a challenge for its developer, and we're looking forward to seeing how it plays out.
The first Injustice is also one of the few fighting games out there that has a storyline worth paying attention to. The narrative was strong enough to spawn a critically acclaimed comic book spinoff, and for those invested in the story--yes, we exist--the sequel gives us the next chapter.
