    Injustice 2 surprises us with brilliant plot and storytelling, something unexpected from a fighting game and setting new standards for games in general, coupled with a very satisfying combat system and lots of contents. A must buy for everyone, not just fighting games lovers.

    In our testing on live servers the online multiplayer was as solid as a Kryptonian, with minimal frame delay and no freezing or lag stutters.

    If you’re a DC fan and want a gripping continuation of the Injustice storyline, there’s really no good reason not to fire this baby up and crack some skulls. Hey, oddball entries like Swamp Thing and Blue Beetle alone are worth the price of admission.

    The story has a lot more heart than any movie offering from the DC Comics stable. [Sept 2017, p.65]

    Injustice 2 is a good game, much better than its predecessor. A fluid and colorful combat, detailed scenarios and a super personalization system. It is a great fighting game, but we have missed other challenges as well as collectibles. In that sense, it's a step back from Mortal Kombat X.

    With a solid story mode and comprehensive tutorials, it never once feels like the fighting mechanics are too difficult to grasp. While it may not be the most technically impressive or competitive fighting game ever made, Injustice 2 surely is one of the most accessible and difficult to put down.

    The best-looking 1-on-1 fighter that I've ever seen, and it's so much fun that it has me looking at new and upcoming releases of otherThe best-looking 1-on-1 fighter that I've ever seen, and it's so much fun that it has me looking at new and upcoming releases of other franchises like Street Fighter, Capcom vs Marvel, and DragonBall and asking myself "Why bother when I've got this?" I loved the original (still miss Nightwing, Martian, and Batgirl), but the sequel far surpasses it. The additional abilities and gear system add a lot by allowing you to experiment with different combinations. Then there's the ever-changing Multiverse and Guild Multiverse which provide plenty of variety even for folks like me who usually don't engage in online play. It just keeps getting better with new additions like legendary gear and unique new fighters like Atom and the whole Ninja Turtle team. Still have my fingers crossed for Plastic Man to make an appearance! Expand

    This game is fantastic. I'm a fighting game fanatic, I'll always love the likes of street fighter and Marvel, but Injustice 2 is so fine tunedThis game is fantastic. I'm a fighting game fanatic, I'll always love the likes of street fighter and Marvel, but Injustice 2 is so fine tuned that I cannot ignore it. I was never a big Mortal Kombat fan because of all the violence in said games, but the mechanics and the gameplay were so good that I was craving another game from the developers that had those mechanics, but less brutal death. Little did I know, we got it : Mortal Kombat VS DC universe. Injustice 2 offers a great diversity of ways to explore and play the game. For single player users there is the wacky multiverse with twists and turns in the events, the story mode (which BTW, has the best cinematics), The training mode and the tutorials. For the online warrior in you all, we can find one of the best online systems in a fighting game, I see little lag online in Injustice 2 and it's great. The roster boasts a diverse amount of characters that felt like they were missing from the first game (But I main Joker because he's fun and wacky) like : Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, Supergirl, Dr.Fate and Robin. With 9 DLC characters on the way and 3 of them already revealed (red hood, Starfire and Sub Zero) the content keeps coming. Now, let's talk about the fighting. Injustice boasts an incredibly easy to pick up button setup and a ton of tutorials to help the fighting newcomer. The combos that are given in the menu are only the base of how much you can do with each character considering that each one has different hurtboxes, hitboxes, frame data and most importantly : their character skill. Each character has a different way of beating the everloving crap out of your opponent, and it's that diversity that makes Injustice 2 one of the greats. To conclude, Injustice 2 is a fine tuned and polished fighting game with great characters, fantastic mechanics and gameplay, awesome single player and multi player options and of course the gear system, which allows you to customize your character to your liking and improve their stats, but these are negated in online ranked. Capcom should take some notes if it doesn't want to keep holding netherealm's beer. Expand

    um salto muito grande de qualidade do primeiro jogo, lutas muito fluidas, personagens que refletem o que são no quadrinho, gráficosum salto muito grande de qualidade do primeiro jogo, lutas muito fluidas, personagens que refletem o que são no quadrinho, gráficos excelentes, multiplayer continua com jogadores que não quiseram migrar para o mk11, ponto negativo, sempre lançam personagens compráveis, mas a tartaruga ninja é muito apelona e se eu não quiser comprar vou ficar apanhado das 4, o pacote de lutadores é muito caro sem estar em promoção Expand

    Sinceramente desde que se anuncio este juego lo sentí un poco innecesario, siento que solo extendieron la historia y de mala manera, el finalSinceramente desde que se anuncio este juego lo sentí un poco innecesario, siento que solo extendieron la historia y de mala manera, el final es horrible y poco satisfactorio.
    Las mecánicas de pelea son excelentes y la calidad de los trajes son muy buenas estas dos se mezclan bien con el multijugador que es divertido sobre todo con la banda

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Good thing I watch YouTube. Spoiler Alert! Superman and Wonder Woman are the villains in this game! Thank God I never bought this game. Otherwise the LawWonder Agency would've called internal affairs on me. Don't buy this if you don't want your childhood ruined. Expand
