Rocksteady Studios' upcoming action-adventure game, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, has received mixed reactions since its initial announcement. While some were excited to see the iconic team of supervillains take on the Justice League, others were concerned about the live-action elements of the service.
However, after a year of delay, the game seems to have come a long way, and recent impressions from those who have played the alpha version are extremely positive. One of the most significant aspects of the game is its combat system.
Those who played the alpha praised the shooting mechanics, describing them as "nice and crisp". Additionally, Rocksteady seems to have borrowed the faster QTE reload system from Gears of War, which is a welcome addition for a game that emphasizes gunplay.
Melee combat also feels like a satisfying experience, with players able to perform various combos to take down enemies. One particularly positive comment suggested that Rocksteady "took real lessons from The Avengers" in terms of combat design.
Monetization worries players
While these impressions are encouraging, it's important to note that the game's monetization plans have not yet been fully revealed. This remains a concern for many players, as live games often rely on microtransactions and other forms of monetization that can negatively impact the overall experience.
Despite these concerns, the positive feedback from those who played the alpha is a promising sign for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. With its impressive combat systems and promising gameplay, the game has the potential to be a great addition to the superhero genre.
As Rocksteady continues to refine the game through its closed alpha tests, we can expect to hear more about Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League ahead of its official release in February 2024. Here's hoping the game lives up to its potential and delivers a satisfying experience that doesn't rely on to excessive monetization. Given the state of game monetization lately, we doubt that will be the case.
