Injustice 2 Review

share

Injustice 2 is the sequel to 2013’s top fighting game, Injustice God’s Among Us. Featuring a large cast of people’s favorite DC characters such as Batman, Superman, Swap Thing, Harley Quinn, and Wonder Woman. Expanding upon some of the first games mechanics, and making iterations to the formula, does Injustice 2 offer a premiere pro fighting experience?

Injustice 2 expands upon many of the first games features and mechanics, taking some lessons from their last game Mortal Kombat X. Also plenty of new features have been added, such as the brand new gear system. The gear system works as the games skins, while also having their own stats such as strength and speed added. Allowing for you to play more in your own style. Of course the game has a leveling system for these characters, the max being 20. The more levels you go the more access to new gear you can obtain. The gear system in this game is revolutionary for fighting games, no more DLC skins, now what you wear matters and changes how you look. There is also premiere skins in the game such as Power Girl and Mister Freeze, that are different characters that take the place of Supergirl and Captain Cold. These are great additions as instead of making new characters that would be clones, you can make these skins to boot. The gear you get from boxes which you gain from in game currency or can purchase with real world money. It’s bad that micro transactions have made their into this title, but it’s easy to unlock boxes and get skins and gear so I don’t mind it as much. The game also features day 1 DLC with Darkseid which I hate so I did not get a chance to play as him.

Injustice 2 builds upon the traits introduced in the first game. For example, Supergirls trait is her heat vision, which you tap the trait button and she will use it as a projectile attack. You can even use her trait in the form of combos based on how charged her trait is. Black Canary can scream, depending on the charge of it, will depend on how long it’ll stun enemies. A lot of the returning characters play very similar, Green Lantern especially. But Harley Quinn has some big changes, more agile, a new trait that uses her pet Hynias as sort of moving projectile. Batman and Superman are the two characters you should start with, as they are all around fighters that use a wide variety of combos and styles. The combo system is of course very similar and varies between characters, it does feel more fluid and similar to Mortal Kombat X, which is a good thing.

The story of Injustice 2 picks up several years after Injustice: Gods Among Us. Superman is still in jail and Batman is moving into a sort of watcher, trying to stop threats before they even, control from the shadows. Meanwhile Supergirl is in hiding, being naive of the truth of this world, and Braniac is hatching his scheme to collect Earth. I find the plot a great continuation of the first game, I would say it is on par, not better or worse, on par. Which is great, it tells the next chapter of this story and goes in a very satisfying direction. Braniac makes for a great villain, being this powerful alien, splitting Batman and Superman yet again on how to deal with his threat. Characters like Harley Quinn get a big chance to shine, while some characters like Doctor Fate and Swamp Thing are so underused you wonder why they even bothered using them in the plot at all. I am excited to see what they do with Injustice 3, since this game has multiple endings. I am curious to see what they go with.

Injustice 2 is a very good looking fighting game. Featuring very detailed models, and fluid colorful environments. The facial animations are not the best and feel a bit off from time to time, mainly in the story mode. It doesn’t bother me too much, and is less noticeable with a character like Batman naturally. The game constantly runs at a smooth 60 frames per second and 1080p on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Using a controller works fine, mainly the PS4 controller, but you are better off with a fighting stick if you have enough cash to purchase yourself one.

Injustice 2 is one of the best fighting games in a long time. Giving me a true DC cinematic experience that’s fresh, fluid and fun. I feel very happy to have had a chance to play this at the start of it’s life, and plan on reviewing every fighter pack as they release. The question is Batman or Superman? I give Injustice 2 a 9 out of 10, every battle defines you.

Late last year, Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition was released on Sony platforms (PS3, PS4 & PS Vita), PC and Xbox 360. The Xbox One version was nowhere to be found, with absolutely no explanation given as to why. Now almost a year later Warner Bros. has announced the popular fighting game will make its way to Xbox One consoles on October 7.

Why WB chose an October release when the month is already crowded with video games is beyond me but I digress. The game will be presented in full 1080p resolution, run at 60 frames per second and support Microsoft’s dedicated Xbox Live servers to provide the best online experience possible.

Injustice: Gods Among Us UE will include the full game and all of the DLC released for the vanilla (original) Injustice:

  • 30 New Skins
  • 6 New Characters: Zod, Zatanna, Batgirl, Lobo, Martian Manhunter and Scropion (Mortal Kombat series)
  • 60 New S.T.A.R. Lab Missions

The game will be priced at $29.99 for the retail copy and $30 for the digital version. You can view the official box art below.
