Injustice 2

About Injustice 2

Injustice 2 is a fighting video game based upon the DC Universe. It is a fighting game developed by NetherRealm Studios and QLOC and published by Warner Bros who released it worldwide on 16th May 2017. It is The second installment of the property makes for a worthy follow up to the original that throws some fan-favorite characters into the mix.

The campaign featured within Injustice 2 is as engaging as NetherRealm’s pedigree would have fans believe. An alternate universe where Superman is a villain is interesting in and of itself, but the plot unfolding with each and every battle does wonders to immerse players in the battle. Eventually the big bad surfaces which adds several new dimensions to the conflict, and that makes for some worthwhile elements to the story being told. Add in some different narrative-based paths based on what players opt to do during the campaign and players will find themselves occupied for hours.

Despite an entertaining story mode, there are some sections which tend to drag, as the roster is limited. Characters will continue to show up out of the blue. The appearances of Atrocitus and Joker in particular feel shoehorned, while the ragtag group of villains assembled by newcomer Gorilla Grodd really don’t make much sense for anyone familiar with the characters outside of Injustice – at least not in the context of in-game cut scenes or dialogue.

    Injustice 2 contains two playing modes Campaign, Multiplayer which make the core aspect of the game. All the two game modes are a treat to play with the credit going to the developers, NetherRealm Studios who have reinvigorated the facet of the series.
    • Campaign – Injustice 2 picks up five years after Superman’s fall in the first game. While Superman rots away in a special red sun prison cell, Batman attempts to restore civilization to something resembling normalcy. Former Superman cronies like The Flash and Green Lantern work toward redemption. Freed from the Joker’s thrall for good, Harley Quinn works a computer in Bruce Wayne’s hideout, wearing a bat symbol on the back of her jacket. On the other side of the world, Wonder Woman and Black Adam plot Superman’s comeback, armed with a secret weapon from another world—Kara Zor-El. You know, Supergirl. Supergirl’s introduction in story mode also serves as the introduction of Brainiac, the green-skinned, space-faring super-villain with a penchant for collecting cities and destroying planets in the process. With her world about to be destroyed, Kara’s mother sends her off in a rocket of similar design to the one carrying her infant cousin Kal-El. Kara is to be his protector, as long as she doesn’t get knocked off course and forced into cryosleep for several decades. The fate of the Earth and the resolution of the superhero conflict established in the first Injustice game plays out in Injustice 2's rather lengthy story mode. Split up into 12 chapters, each putting players in control of one or two DC Comics icons, it’s a major comic book crossover event in playable form. Story mode is robust and satisfying, with superb facial animation, voice acting and tons of single-player content. Battles are tense and exciting.
    • Multiplayer – The long-term potential of any fighting game comes from its multiplayer features, and Injustice 2 doesn't disappoint. Offline players have the option of battles with customizable settings or playing with standardized tournament settings. Online, you can create and browse rooms for non-ranked matches, allowing groups of players to join and take turns competing. The room browser makes it easy to find a group to join without having to rely on matchmaking. Ranked mode simply finds an opponent of similar skill level to battle against, helpfully displaying your opponent's win/loss ratio, odds of winning, and ping. Gear affects stats in Player matches but not Ranked matches.
