DC Comic and NetherRealm Studios has teamed up once again to create the anticipated sequel featuring some of the most famous super-heroes of all time, Injustice 2. Injustice 2 is the follow-up to the previous Injustice which continues the story of the conflicts between Batman and Superman only this time they have to work together to defeat the common enemy, Brainiac. This game contains a ton of fan favorite characters from the DC Universe, some recurring and brand new to the main roster. Injustice 2 also added a new features where players can customized their favorite character with new gear that will improve their powers and abilities. With all the new characters and added gameplay features, does Injustice 2 live up to the hype?
I’m going to be honest, I am not good at fighting game. I have a hard time trying to unleash powerful combo move to my opponents and I end up button mashing the controller while praying for a win. However, in Injustice 2 I found it very easy to handle the control. It easy to unleash different combos because the controls was simple. The graphics are beautiful on the next-generation console. The graphics make characters design looks realistic. I like how players can interact with the background environment similar to Mortal Kombat. I love how Injustice 2 added the featured of customizing your favorite character with different gear to in enhance their powers. I love this feature because it reminds me of an RPG. In the game you can use you personalized custom character in multiplayer, in the multiverse mode, or online to level up not only your character, but the player’s personal level as well. I like the fact that players can win these mother boxes after a match which contains different gears ranging from common to epic. The mother boxes are similar to the loot boxes in Overwatch, but unlike the loot boxes, the mother boxes contains items that are actually worth something.
The only nitpick that I have for this game is the ranking matches in the online mode. I feel that the games mismatch players who are at different levels. I have been match up with players who are levels ahead of me with over-leveled characters with overpowered gear, which leaves me with a disadvantage. You would assumed that the ranking match would match players up who are at the same level for an even playing field.
To conclude this review, Injustice 2 is an overall great game to play. If you’re a casual in fighting game, you will still have fun. The controls are easy to learn and the graphic looks amazing. The best part is the ability to customized your favorite super-hero. So far, I think Injustice 2 is a contender for best fighting game of 2017. Thank you for reading this review of Injustice 2. Until next time, “Be Easy and Stay Epic!”
