Injustice 2 review
by bgsmith3

Injustice 2 is a sequel to the first Injustice game. The game focuses on the alternate universe that was introduced in the first game. The story centers on the aftermath of the events in the first game and how many of these heroes and villains react to a new threat that puts the whole world in peril. The graphics are amazing. The story feels more like a film which I have no problem with. The voice work is really good. The character designs are cool, but I think a handful of the designs look like they were inspired by recent DC movies and I don't like that at all. The gameplay is better and less choppy than it was in the first game. Generally everything has been improved on which is what a good sequel does. The new multiplayer component and the inclusion of gear really promotes continued play which the first game lacked. I would say that this was and is a much more enjoyable game and another great sequel.

 Rating- 4.5/5

It may not be perfect, but I love everything about this game. Except don't touch the online stuff. Everything offline or the non-multiplayer online events is perfect. 
If you like DC or fighting games, you'll probably like this. If you like both you've definitely already played this.
A lot of the character designs look terrible, the story's writing is basic and forgettable, the dialogue can get really cringy at times. The only saving grace for the game is the action and mechanics which prove to be really fun. First time a fighting game has ever peaked my interest, and that's mainly just because it includes DC characters. 
Journal Style Review:

I’ve never really liked fighting games. They have never appealed. I think they look cool and I like the idea of them, but in practise I never like playing them that much or for that long. But I like DC and I like the idea of this story so now that it’s on gamepass I’m giving it a go.

Early impression is not great. Opening set up is pretty good. But I’m never a fan of Batman’s thou shall not kill antics. So thats a bit less my vibe.

I hope I get the hang of combat and get a bit more satisfaction out of that because for the first hour or so I haven’t loved it. Harley Quinn has so far been my favourite character to play as.

The gorilla character was ridiculous. Never seen that dc character before. But I do usually like talking apes.

Green arrow new fave to play as. I’m enjoying the gameplay a bit more. Getting a better feel for it. I’m getting better at hitting the ultimates which are pretty fun.

Definitely more fun when stoned. This story is pretty fun when stoned. And the game looks super cool. The unique and fancy moves, especially the ultimates, are fun to see for the first few times.

Some of this story is sweet in a lighthearted comic book kind of way. I don’t like Batman’s resistance to kill though.

The gameplay is growing on me as I get better and more effective at pulling off special moves and combos. There have been fights that have come down to the wire and I’m excited about the win. This game started very low but it’s climbing the ranks.

Swamp things ultimate is the best one yet. Very cool.

The brainiac fights against superman and batman were awesome. They were extra challenging too which was appreciated. Im actually thinking ill see what other single player challenges exist when i beat the campaign. I didnt think id be interested in playing more but I am.

Mildly disappointing ending to the story. The final Batman vs Superman fight wasn’t that great. It wasn’t as good as the brainiac conclusion I felt. 

I messed around in the multiverse for another day but I’m now good to move on. I actually liked the idea of the multiverse. I like how the character progression with levels and new items looked. If I wanted to actually get good at this style of game and I felt the need to keep playing then that system I think would really work for me. But because I don’t want to play this game a ton, and there isn’t really an end to the multiverse I don’t feel motivated to play any longer. In the end this is a very high B. Which is a reasonable improvement over the first. I can tell this game is very well done, but it’s just not my genre. For what it was I still had a pretty enjoyable time with the story mode.

Final Score: B

Injustice 2 is an amazing game. It’s a hundred times better than it’s predecessor, and it’s a game that actually shows developers hearing out to their fans calls. Not only did they bring highly called out characters like red hood and star fire, but they added a whole new gear system. It’s amazing how injustice 2 also has almost no inconsistencies between characters. You will never feel that characters are op or what not, and it’s honestly a must for action fans. I mean the story mode had some dull moments and almost no emotions from some characters whatsoever *cough* firestorm, but if you want injustice just for the story mode then your a lunatic.

Its an awersome game but I feel like the Injustice game isnt really there, with every ability you use is pritey much auto, and some characters isnt in the game like The Insurgency Joker, Doomsday and Martian Manhunter, I feel like thats an huge miss that you didnt bring them in to Injustice 2 and its a much more complicated game than IGAU, and also that you had to bring in another currency, it was much easier to just have an eye out for how much gold you had in IGAU, it would be nice to see some of the old characters come back without a rework maybe just in the texture (Maybe) IGAU - Injustice Gods among us

Overall, a very well implemented game. The Injustice console fans will definitely get their money's worth. I would only have 2 criticisms which could be implemented but with an update. For one, it bothers me that the game does not have friends vs friends mode. On the other hand, the player vs. player mode is limited by a number of attempts. The experiments fill up again after a certain time. I find it counterproductive to limit the game by trying. I hope for changes! Ps: Under certain circumstances, the modes listed above exist, if that is the case, please, I ask for revision of the home screen, thanks!
