When will NetherRealm start to take iOS seriously? When Injustice for iOS was announced I thought that we would get a port of the fighting game, instead we got an IB-like game, and now another Lockdown game? Then what, a Mortal Kombat game with Injustice Mobile gameplay?

What I see:

UE: nope, not hyped.

Button based combat: hmm, won't judge til I actually play it. Looks not awfully different from the last Arkham Lockdown, but they better make it more responsive.

Mission oriented: fine... but man do I love me some real exploration...

Dual currency: Infinity Blade 3 all over again no timer, or this one is off the list.

Overall might be a flop, but who knows, maybe we're in for some significant improvement.

Playing: Corridor Z, Goblin Sword, Lost Toys, Duet Game, Layton Brother, Threes!, Solomon's Keep, Crabitron, Punch Quest, IB3, Sword & Sworcery (Recommend them all!)

Think that its size will be more than 1Gb. So sad...

Holy boring Batman, looks EXACTLY like the other Batman game where you swipe until your fingers fall off.

We will just have to wait ten years, when the console ports from Nether realm start coming to iOS.

This looks ok. I haven't played the earlier batman game. I would be surprised if this is "the same". Surely NRS will do something different.

Is this style of gameplay even popular outside of Infinity Blade? So many copycats.

Plus - free to play - yet another lacklustre attempt at a game.

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

So you're saying injustice has more depth than lockdown? Really? Neither were really great games, but at least there was skill involved in lockdown.

Anyway, I'm just gonna wait until its released to judge. It does seem similar to lockdown, but hopefully the assassin battles will add some variety.
