It's a big month for DC. Justice League comes out on November 17, the first true-blue Wonder Woman/Batman comics by Liam Sharp is coming out, and Henry Cavill just admitted that DC movies haven't really worked until now (shocking!). But before the madness of the League hits us, we are laying back and catching up with the DC Comics. On our smartphones. Here are the best DC Comics games you can play while you wait for Justice League.
The most extensive DC Game universe there is. Hailed as the 'ultimate role-playing Android game', DC Legends lets you recruit your own champions and lead them into a high-powered battlefield. It is a strategy-based game, and you can team up with names like Green Arrow, Doomsday, Wonder Woman, and Harley Quinn for your missions.
You can play against a story-driven backdrop across iconic DC origin locales like Metropolis, Themyscira, and more. The game has upped its action to get more cinematic, to appeal to the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) fans, and you can even collect some epic merch like Batman’s Batarang, Sinestro’s Power Battery, or Lex Luthor’s Kryptonite Ring. Rankings are obviously involved, and you can move your superhero or supervillain across 14 leagues.
Batman: Arkham Origins
The granddaddy of all superhero games, Batman: Arkham, has caught up with the smartphone age, and has some major new moves. Batman: Arkham Origins is a total combat-based game and every player has to play as... wait for it — Batman. It relies on an arcade-style fighting system, and is obviously heavily background-driven. Gamers who have played the original Arkham video games might not be initially impressed, and might find it lacking in finesse. Though the graphics are obviously better for the Androids.
In Arkham Origins, you literally have to fight your way through Gotham. Cuz you're Batman, remember? So, Batman fans might find this game to be a treat, and it stays true to the signature DC gore and violence. And while you're at it, check out the Batman: Arkham Origins movie too.
The game has stellar visuals, it's incredibly detailed, and the Harley Quinn looks almost as good as the movie. It is also one of the most popular DC games, owing to its Android-friendly format. On October 25, the anniversary of Mortal Kombat, the game added a new character — Raiden, the God of Thunder.
Moreover, the game is set in the future, where Batman and his allies struggle to sustain in a brutal regime, dominated by Team Superman.
