    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.

This fighter, pits good and bad, well known and more obscure DC Comics franchise characters against one another in a technically amazing game.

    Following the same winning formula single player campaign story style which proved popular in Injustice: Gods Among Us, the campaign mode will ease you into the combat and let you get to grips with each character slowly, rotating players and play styles as you progress, all seamlessly accompanied by gritty and stylish cinematics which will keep you on the edge of your seat.

    The story mode plays out like a movie with a bunch of playable combat thrown in for fun. It’s an engaging story that drags all the characters in to it, giving you a chance to play as most of them as you progress. The lip sync to character models is not perfect during the cut scenes but it is one of the very few flaws, so we will let it slide.

    The beloved Injustice level interactions are back and as glorious as we remembered. The musical score is awesome. A good old epic movie soundtrack with highs and lows throughout keeping in line with the level designs.

    Gameplay is as awesome as it was in the first game. Combos can be strung together by chance with some frantic button mashing, but mastering them is a challenge which will see you practicing endlessly.

    The normal modes one has come to expect in the fighting game genre are all present, with campaign, arcade and online modes, but adding to this is a new ‘Multiverse’ mode. Based loosely on the Mortal Kombat Living Towers formula, this online mode sets up various of random events within matches to really test your skills – for example, static bombs are fired at you from the sky as you battle your way through 5 opponents, or you must defeat enemies whilst your health bar automatically decreases. These random event matches, once beaten, will serve up delightful rewards and big xp boosts, as well as providing an excellent way of rethinking how you play the game.

    The character roster is impressive, with 27 playable characters out of the box, 28 if you pre-ordered (Darkseid) and one DLC character available at launch for the rather pricey £4.99 (Brainiac). Fan favourites fuch as Batman, Superman, The Joker and Harley Quinn are all present, as well as the likes of Doctor Fate, Blue Beetle, Firestorm and Gorilla Grodd. Following the success of Scorpion from Mortal Kombats inclusion in Injustice Gods Among Us, Injustice 2 will see Sub-Zero added at a later date, along with the likes of Starfire, Grid, Red Hood and Power Girl, all through downloadable content.

    Certain characters from the original have been dropped, such as Doomsday, Deathstroke, Lex Luthor and Solomon Grundy, but the present lineup will keep the most avid of DC fans happy for a long time.

    There is an utterly incomprehensible amount of content in this gem of a game, for example, we noticed in single player mode, each character, when pitted against any other specific character would rarely repeat the same voice line – each individual opening gambit seemingly specific for that particular character match up. We decided to see just how many of these there were and had to give up after just one character. Take Batman for example (the character we chose for this test). He seemingly has an average of 8 specific opening bits of dialogue per character, i.e. if you pick Batman and you select Flash as your opponent, 1 of 8 different bits of dialogue will play, each unique for Batman Vs Flash. Now, to briefly summarise what this means – each interaction lasts 12 seconds. 12 seconds x 8 different introductions for this match up equate to 1 minute 36 seconds of unique dialogue for this one character match up. Not all characters have 8 sets of dialogue, some have 7, some have 13, but in total, against all characters, including Batman Vs Batman, Batman Vs Brainiac and Batman Vs Darkseid, Batman has a whopping 237 unique intros. To put that in to context, that is 47 and a half minutes of intro footage just of Batman. Include the other 28 characters and their respective matches and we estimate around 23 hours of unique intro footage alone, bonkers, right?

    You don’t need to be a DC comic book fan to appreciate Injustice 2, the graphics, the fluidity of the animations, the story, the stage interactions, the technical fighting mechanics and the overall depth should be enough to tempt you in. We love it and give it our seal of approval. This is a game that we will talk about for a very, very long time.

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
