Injustice: Gods Among Us
Injustice: God Among Us features both superheroes and supervillains who fight with each other. It is set in a 2.5D environment with the DC universe’s most iconic fingers.
This game has great gameplay and a diverse cast. You will love Injustice: God Among Us story mode, you get to play with heroes and villains of the DC world. The game has a layout of light, medium, and heavy attacks with character traits. The story mode is so exciting from the beginning and the end. The game doesn’t have a block button.

The first Tekken game was released in 1994, and till now Tekken is the most popular fighting game because of its great fighting mechanics and smooth gameplay.

Tekken 3 introduced so many playable characters, up to 20 characters.
Tekken 3’s story ends in suspense where Jin’s grandfather Heihachi shoots him but Jin survives and transforms into the Devil Gene which builds a huge fan base of Tekken. Due to the super storyline and variety of playable characters, Tekken’s service is universally acclaimed and commercially successful. I personally love the Tekken series. The Tekken series really raised the standard of fighting games.

Liu Kang, Johnny Cage, and Sonya Blade these warriors were selected to fight and defend the Earth realm with the help of the thunder god Raiden.
The WWE video game series is based on the popular television show named World Wrestling Entertainment. The gameplay is similar to the t.v show but much more fun to play. You choose your favorite superstar to fight against another superstar. Players don’t have a red health bar like any other fighting game, instead, they have a meter measuring HUB.
As a move is performed on a specific part of the opponent, the more likely it is for the superstar to submit. The more you take or give to your opponent there are more chances of winning. There are four ways to win a match in every game: by pinfall, submission, knockout, count-out. WWE mainly has two series, the WrestleMania series, and the SmackDown series.

After playing Killer Instinct I think it is a combination of street fighter and mortal combat, the game offers finishing moves just like mortal combat fatalities each player has two moves called no mercy which is like a long combo if you master it you can easily win a match. Players can also break combos.
Killer Instinct runs very smoothly in 60 FPS to 90 FPS both in offline matches and online matches. The background of the arena feels insane. The lighting, the rain will make you more engaged in the match and focused.
