    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.

While it is not the first fighter to introduce a gear system, it does it in a great way by allowing players to use it to their advantage offline, then giving the choice of playing with or without sets online. The roster has some marvelous additions and the developers deserve credit for continuing to support and balance the game post launch. If you enjoy DC Comics, or fighters, you need to add this title to your collection. Expand

    Injustice 2 is incredibly fun.

    Injustice 2 is incredibly fun.
    I really enjoyed the first injustice, I know it's flawed but I thought it was a really solid fighting game, so I was worried about injustice 2, since I thought it didn't need a sequel, but to my surprise, injustice 2 improves on every aspect from the first one.

    The story feels shorter than the first one but it's a lot better, the characters develop throughout the story, a lot of the antagonists are really sympathetic and it does explain some of the actions they did in the first game. And with great characters comes a great conflict, especially the last 30 minutes, the only problem I have with the story is that it's barely 5 hours, but other than that it was a blast.

    The gameplay and graphics both improved from the first game, even if I liked the first injustice, even I can admit that the graphics weren't good at all but in injustice 2, the facial animations feel realistic, the environmental animations are great and the characters design are literally incredible.
    The gameplay is basically like the first injustice but with little subtle improvements which makes great fun, it's all about the timing of your attacks and the speed of your reflexes, the 28 different characters make the matches feel different and the gear mode can give a different fighting style to your favourite character, there is so much to like here.

    Buy it now, this game surprised me in so many ways, it might be my favorite fighting game ever, even if it the story is short, there is so much content to this game that it is really worth the asking price, you won't be disappointed.

    A more polished version of the first entry in the series with a less stellar story. The amount of polish in this game is breath taking, the MOA more polished version of the first entry in the series with a less stellar story. The amount of polish in this game is breath taking, the MO Cap work and facial animations, stunning. This is keeping the trend of making story in fighting games matter. This one doesn't hit the mark as much for me, I like the new characters, but I felt like they popped up in the story just for the fun of it and didn't have much of a reason outside of just to be there. This happened more than once and I kind of scratched my head (when Hal Jordan shows up its basically out of thin air while you are in the streets...doesn't make a lot of sense.) Focusing on Brainiac as the pivotal plot point isn't as gut wrenching as Super Man going bad and Batman dealing with it, they get to that a bit more and there are some cool moments, but doesn't outshine the first game.
    The roster adds some nice new additions (Scarecrow and Blue Beetle among my favorite newbies) and all the redesigns seem to be better. The fighting is just as fluid, with some of the supers changing for the better and for worse.
    I think the unlocks became a little too over complicated for my liking, I like my skins and portraits and didn't care for the new loot boxes and equipment drops. On top of that it makes the changing of costumes much more tedious and unlocking items doesn't seem as straight forward.
    Fighting AI or a buddy is still lots of fun.
    The polish...woofta is it good.
    An enjoyable story, but not as good as the first.
    Padding out the collectibles when they could have added cooler skins=bummer.
    New roster added some duds in my eyes, but still a good line up of characters.

I gave 7/10 because of the (current) online matchmaking always pairs me up with far higher level opponent that I have no chance of winning, and Deadshot is quite a cheap character (can't even get close to him). It's a unique fighting game with very high quality production, and if you like DC characters/superheroes this is it. Expand

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
