Leer en español: Los mejores videojuegos de los superhéroes de la Liga de la Justicia
The world of video games and superheroes has always been united. There are video games with this theme that are successful, others not so much but they have always tried to represent in the most popular stories of comics and movies. The DC Universe is no exception either.
Before the premiere of Zack Snyder's Justice League, where the most important superheroes of the franchise are presented, we decided to find out the best video games inspired by these characters, both in their solo adventures and in those that refer to an extensive world. Let's get to know them.
Batman: Arkham Collection
Perhaps one of the best games of all time. In this case, we are talking about a trilogy that is composed by Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Origins. These are three works of enormous weight in the world of adventure video games.
Available for Xbox One and PS4, the truth is that the previous adventures separately could also be enjoyed on other consoles and even on PC. This one features gameplay that is completely faithful to Batman's fighting style, as well as a completely grim and realistic approach. Without a doubt, it is a true classic that does not go out of style and that has become one of the eminences of the genre of solo superhero adventures.
DC Legends: Battle for Justice
There is a mobile video game that manages to enter this top. Developed by WB Games San Francisco, here we enter fully into the DC Comics universe, with an RPG that has elements of progression and an active community in which you can support yourself.
Warner Bros itself ensures that more than 90 characters from the comics and movies of the franchise can be collected while fighting in classic systems of the genre. At the same time, the possibility of playing with friends and with personalized superheroes, makes it more than an interesting option.
Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure
Another of the essentials on this list, which can also be played by the little ones. Released for Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and PC, this installment allows us to know some stories of superheroes, with many main elements of the Justice League saga, with very beautiful graphics and entertaining gameplay.
For those who do not know this video game series, it stars Maxwell and Lily, two brothers who have peculiar magical objects that, in this case, will enter the DC Universe, where players will be able to create their own character, combining different characteristics of the most famous heroes. This video game is a very well accomplished adventure and suitable for all audiences.
DC Universe Online
This title is successful, as it has almost 70 million characters created. This proposal allows players to create their own superheroes (and even villains), to have an open-world experience with the most iconic characters from the entire DC franchise.
According to Vandal this is an ambitious project, but it has gone perfectly. One of the keys to this title is that it is huge in terms of number of superheroes and villains, as there are more than 250 characters of the brand. In short, this MMORPG will allow us to fulfill our dream of becoming a hero or villain while enjoying adventures with other players.
If before we were talking about an ambitious project, here we have a situation that is really transgressive: showing us a completely broken Justice League, where Superman conflicts with Batman.
With amazing graphics, which resemble a cinematic experience, we are presented with a fighting game, where the story is based around Batman and the existing moral conflicts with the rest of the superheroes. Undoubtedly, another one that you need to play to know alternative stories to those of the movies.
All these games of the Justice League characters show us that DC Comics was able to adapt very well to the gamer world.
