Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a surprise superhero package — but part of me wishes it didn’t exist

What We’re Playing

Welcome! This column is part of a series in which members of the Tom’s Guide staff share what they’re playing and enjoying right now, with the goal of helping you find great games that you may have missed. Be sure to check out our previous entry, where we talked about Persona 3 Reload and why it’s the perfect game for the winter months. 

I can’t recall an instance of a recent game where so much of the public’s perception at launch has been indelibly stained by negative pre-release online discourse. In that regard, I feel some sympathy for Rocksteady Studios’ Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The initial reaction to this looter shooter back in 2020 was so vitriolic, you’d think it was single-handedly trying to bring back New Coke. 

My colleague Tony Polanco’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League review is on the way, so it’s not my place to make a definitive judgment on this seemingly ill-fated “games as a service” sandbox on behalf of Tom’s Guide at the moment. Though it’s no secret Tony wasn’t exactly head over heels for this antihero-driven open-world that’s set in Metropolis when he last went hands-on with it recently.

At best, I was indifferent about Suicide Squad in the build up to launch”
