    Excellent game and must-have for any fan of this genre. Sophisticated gaming mechanisms are complemented by a good campaign and an addictive Multiverse. [Issue#274]

    This is the first fighting game I've recommended to my non-fighting game friends in a long time. Whether you just like the idea of a DC superhero punch party, enjoy RPGish gear hooks, or have been looking for an approachable way into fighting games, Injustice 2 has you covered.

    The unrivaled amount of single-player content to explore, especially the highlight Multiverse mode, and the height of Injustice 2’s skill ceiling make it an easy environment in which to lose hours of your day without ever even challenging another human… or giant telekinetic gorilla, as it were.

    While the competitive future of Injustice 2 is currently unclear, one thing is certain: NetherRealm have created a highly polished fighter. With a campaign mode that blows the competition out of the water, fights that pop, and an extensive customisation system, the Chicago-based studio has done right by the DC license.

    A great over-the-top fighting game with DC characters, great presentation and diverse combat system.

    Injustice 2 is a great sequel for Gods Among Us. NetherRealm Studios took a pretty safe road with this title in terms of gameplay mechanics, but the little changes they made work perfectly. A great story, good loot box system and a solid multiplayer, make this experience worthwhile.

    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.

    Completion: 100% story mode. Dabbled with multiverse.

    Pros:
    - Best story mode in a fighting game bar none. Great experience with solid narrative and exception cinematics.
    - Gear is fun and extremely varied in appearance and function.
    - Some of the best facial animation in the business
    - Fun battle system that is easy to pick up - although it does feel a bit limited after awhile
    - Flashy super moves, backgrounds, and animations are great for the flow of combat

    Cons:
    - Some characters look ugly and not what you would expect based on other depictions of them
    - Really not a lot to hook you after the relatively short story mode is over. While gear is fun to play around with, unless you plan on playing the game competitively (which I don't), there is not much else to do. Multiverse gets boring since there is no particular goal or end in sight.
    - Relatively simple compared to many other games in the genre
    - DLC characters in fighting games can really hurt the community - I don't want to pay more for extra characters than the actual game itself
    - Loading times are overly long
    - Projectile spam is a relatively big problem in this game

    Final Word:
    - Great experience that may be a bit skimpy for the price if you are a casual player - especially considering the high price of the DLC characters.

    Injustice 2 is a great fighting game that surpasses the first game in almost every way. The story is solid, the core fighting is fun, andInjustice 2 is a great fighting game that surpasses the first game in almost every way. The story is solid, the core fighting is fun, and there's enough replay value for me to see myself coming back to this game, which is where I felt the first game was lacking.
    The Campaign:
    The story is solid and I'd say is an improvement from the first one. The story feels more like a story than an excuse to make the characters fight each other. (Mostly) every fight has a reason to happen. Because this game takes place only in the evil superman universe the story makes more sense than in the first one where the universes are getting merged. If you have not played the first game though you will probably be lost. My biggest complaint with the campaign is the ending. It felt more like Netherrealm was trying to make it open to a sequel than to give the story a truly satisfying ending. I do want to see a sequel eventually, but this game could've wrapped up the story for until the next game comes out. Overall though, the campaign is great and you should definitely play it.
    Multiplayer:
    I SUCK at fighting games so I was expecting to get my ass kicked online and that's pretty much what happened. I kinda wish there was more of a ranking system so that I was matched with players of my skill level. The game was matching me with opponents of my level, but they clearly had more fighting game experience with me and seemed to know multiple 20 hit combos for every character. Other times I knew I was better or equivalent to the opponent skill-wise, but they were beating me because they picked Deadshot. I don't wanna go on a rant about the character balance, but Deadshot is a pain in the ass.
    MICROTRANSACTIONS!!!???:
    There are microtransactions in this game. You can buy gear that will improve you're character's stats, looks, and even moves. While this is disabled in ranked mode, and you don't have to spend any money, it's just kinda odd to have microtransactions. But, as I said you don't have to spend a dime. You can get all the gear for free by just playing. It is pretty cool in that aspect and gives me another reason to come back to this game. What bothers me is the moves that are locked behind this gear. Some moves characters had in the previous game are unavailable for the characters by default and must be unlocked through the gear system. Not a huge deal though, considering I could probably unlock them with enough play time.
    Overall Injustice 2 is a solid fighting game with lots of variety, and enough new content to keep players coming back for a while. Definitely worth a purchase if you're a fan of fighting games or DC in general.

The gear, which was a main selling point has been extremely poorly implemented. Even if you buy the Ultimate Edition they lock additional content behind a paywall (skins). They released a patch which has deleted a lot of the gear that people have worked for months to obtain. All while providing little to no information and support. Expand
