Played through the first third of Injustice on the weekend.
Surprised to find the hype was true--the idea of a cinematic comic book game based around a Mortal Kombat 1 vs 1 mod sounded like a mess, but this game is really, really good. Good story, good presentation, very effective integration of cinematics and quick time events to change up the gameplay, and the combat is better and more entertaining than Mortal Kombat in a lot of ways, and transitions within the story surprisingly well. They also did a very good job at creating an adult DC storyline that is still very true to the comic roots--and also Aquaman is badass for the first time in history. The writing and acting and directing are all top notch, though once in a while the cut scene graphics look a bit weak in the facial features, and to be honest the plot is a bit hard to follow (I know, I know, I must be an idiot, but when you do parallel universe storylines you have to keep the audience in the loop about who is who and why things are happening, which I feel sometimes got muddied in the portion I played).
I still haven't played as Superman though, but in some ways I don't want to try the 1 on 1 modes until I've played through the storyline. Part of the fun is discovering what a character can do when you are given control of them, it adds to some of the drama/unexpectedness of it all.
This is well worth the money, for those interested in it. You don't have to be a fighting game fan to enjoy this as well.

"When George went back and put new creatures into the original Star Wars, I find that disturbing. It’s a revision of history. That bothers me."
