Injustice 2 is a bigger, better, more beautiful follow up to Gods Among Us that improves on the irks of the first game to make it a polished fighter. No matter if your enjoyment falls into single player or multiplayer, there is so much high quality content, from the big budget flair of the story mode, the impressive presentation, the Multiverse’s changing challenges, and the solid online code built in Injustice 2 that it can supply many hours, days and weeks of brutal entertainment, no matter the skill level of the player. I feel confident in saying that Injustice 2 is the best work NetherRealm Studios has ever done, and in that, making it an excellent fighting game for fans of the genre or lovers of superheroes.
Taking in to consideration I hate the typical Hollywood cheese, this game really pulls it off. It is fun combat. Pretty much a variation of Mortal Kombat. The story mode **** on that sack of **** Batman film that somehow manages to loiter around the IMDB top 10 films. Injustice 2 works on every aspect. Fun to play, engaging story due to the fights integrated, good mechanics, good roster. I just tried a bit of the DLC today and the TMNT one is pretty good. Great that the story blurs the lines between the good guys and the bad guys. Don't get me wrong, there's no depth to the story but it doesn't matter because the fighting brings the excitement. Again, think Mortal Kombat.
For a while **** ton of franchises I can't stand, I really enjoy this game. Great fighter.
NetherRealm is finally able to implement its own style to not only the combat system, but also the whole DC Universe, reimagining the confrontation between the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight in a brilliant Story Mode. Multiverse offers an almost infinite number of hours of play, and can satisfy any type of player. Despite lack of innovation in the game, the group of DC heroes finally gets the videogame they deserve.
When you learn your moves well enough to be able to focus on reading your opponent, InJustice 2 starts to resemble a match of chess, where thinking and anticipating is as important as swift fingers. I’m sure fighting games fans will have a blast with it. [07/2017, p.74]
These fruits are soured by lazy, contrived storytelling, and a gear system that stands in opposition to what fighting games should be about. All of this ultimately makes Injustice 2 a step back not only from the original but also from the level of quality we’re used to seeing from NetherRealm.
This holds the title as my favorite Fighting and Superhero game ever. Graphics even for today are amazing. i love the superheroes and fun gameplay easy to learn and hard to master. The story is pretty trash tho and the gear system is very annoying but since i have hundreds of hours on this game i can't give this anything but a perfect score.
This game suffers same problems as other NRs games.
Main issue is the blocking-system, with moving back being same as block.
If your facing an enemy that uses projectiles, you want to move in on him - not move back. As he
Shots projectiles - you wanna just block in that position. Close to impossible in this game, as blocking now is same move backward, turning the whole thing into a spam-projectiles and use 1-2 counterattacks when your moving in and can not protect yourself. This ruins the game experience for me.
Also, the game is complelty unbalanced. You are at a great disadvantage against certain characters depending on who you play. It should be balanced each guy against eachother and it totally is not.
Because neather realms prefers to just throw a lots and lots of moves in to the game and not think about balancing. MKX has same problems but at least it has a decent block system. The game is also very stiff and counter-intuitive. Kicks and punches that should land just dont cause of the unnatural low reach-level of everyone in the game. This is much tighter in MKX, where you can feel that punches that should land also do land.
This game also suffers from the annoying 30%-hits if you press l2+r2, which I never liked, just like in MKX.
And you still cant configure to turn anything on/off. I would disable this thing and also projectiles should only do damage if they land, 0% if they dont. Maybe even penalize if your spamming projectiles to much. To discourage projectile spammers.
Injustice 2 is really just a reskin of MKX, with less tight gameplay and a poorer blocking system. Dont buy this, get MKX or something else not from neather realms.
Have you played the original Injustice? This is exactly that rehashed the way everyone always complains yet fail to see the truth about this game. Why waste overbearing amounts of moneys such as two or even three times original game price to actually recieve all the content? Pathetic. Way too many people fan boy these characters and overlook a large amount of the games flaws.
