When Injustice: Gods Among Us came out i was so excited to play that game because not only fighting games are one of my top games to play but i’m also a DC Universe fan. To be honest i didn’t think it was going to have a sequel or anything like that so here we are 4 years later and Injustice 2 came out. I was so thrilled and couldn’t wait for the release date and to get my hands on it and play it. So here are my thoughts and honest review about it.
Injustice 2’s story mainly focuses in Batman and Superman’s rivalry; following the events of the first game, a couple years later. Brainiac is set to destroy planet Earth and our heroes which typically are team Batman and team Superman must face a reality check fighting against members of The Society and Brainiac and his army. I found the story very cool, deep and interesting with some twists yet, a little bit too predictive, but nonetheless i was very impressed with it overall. We see sides of characters we haven’t seen before and we get to make our own decisions and take our own path since the game has multiple endings.
I find the graphics in this game exceptionally exquisite, the character’s facial expressions are one of the best i’ve seen, (they are modeled after real-life people). The roster of characters is very diverse, there’s a few unusual or dark DC superheroes and villains featured in the game and that is something NetherRealm Studios set eyes on since the beginning. I’m very satisfied with the final roster even though some of my favorite DC characters didn’t make the cut.
The game’s gameplay is very similar to it’s predecessor with just a minor changes so for players who are familiar with the previous game and/or the Mortal Kombat games it shouldn’t be too hard to get used to the controllers. New features are added to this game such as the Gear System which is something very cool and innovative; it basically let’s you earn and unlock pieces of armor and weapons for your characters so you can customize them however you see fit.
Another cool feature is the Multiverse which is an arcade mode and let’s you pick from up to 5 alternate Earths and battle against opponents with various handicaps, stipulations, and goals until you have defeated them all, earning in-game coins, skill points, random gear, and tokens among other things.
The Super Moves make a return of course with some returning character having a complete new move while others remain the same but more detailed and realistic. Other cool feature that makes a return is the stage interaction where you can pick up certain objects and hit your opponent with, throw stuff at your opponents and even sending them to a whole new stage which is called stage transition where the fight resumes, that is very fun and i’m all up for it.
Online mode let’s you disable the Gear System which buffs your characters attributes such as strength, health, ability, etc… Which only leaves your character and their new updated appearance to be purely cosmetic-based and makes it up for a more evenly match against online opponents. However, it is up to you to disable it or not.
- I highly recommend this game and i give Injustice 2 a rating of 8 out of 10 stars. If you are a fan of fighting games and/or a DC universe fan, this is a must; plus plenty of upcoming additional characters coming up. The graphics are impressive and there’s plenty to keep you busy besides the fighting since the Multiverse keeps altering every day and the Gear System will have you customizing characters for hours.
