Injustice 2 Review
Welcome to the newest game of the DC Comics universe.
This game is a sequel to the original ‘Injustice: Gods among us’ that we all know and love. Injustice 2 continues the previous story with Batman and his allies continuing to work together in repairing the broken world around them while facing those who wish to restore Superman’s rule. When playing in story mode, there’s no way you can’t enjoy the dramatic scenes of this tale that we all admire.
Here players can choose from the over 30-character roster from the classics like Batman, Superman, Supergirl, The Flash and more, to new villains such as Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, Deadshot, etc.
This game is unique because it is one of the few that actually allows you to customize each character’s look by changing their gear while giving you a true RPG feel. With this new addition of gear, players have the ability to personalize each hero or villain to their liking.
Each character has a broad range of super powers and fighting styles. The fighting system consists of the known hand to hand combat, super powers, weapons and environmental hazards which all show clear improvement from the game’s 2013 predecessor. What we don’t recognize however is the newly introduced combo-fighting system.
This unparalleled combo system can be used in any showdown to maximize attacks. They range from juggling combos by bouncing characters off of floors and walls to two button super-moves that pause all the action for a more intense combo attack. We are also introduced to a new combo attack called ‘Clash.’ Clash is a move that forces players to risk part of their super meter by either regaining health or imposing extra damage. For a new player, clash can be a good escape route but for a pro it can be a cunning strategy to alter the battle in your favor.
It can take time to master these special moves going from one attack to another but once you get the hang of it you can inflict some serious pain on your opponents.
One of the greatest things about this game is that you constantly have the ability to practice every one of your moves in the Multiverse. The multiverse serves as a learning opportunity to see your character’s skills from a new point of view and study their potential. Although not every challenge offered in the multiverse is worthwhile, you can still get ahead of the competition because this is your prime form of attaining extra gear, item boxes and experience points.
Overall, this game is definite must-try. No matter what your level, it’s relatively simple to learn and provides a fun experience with a captivating story.
