Injustice 2 is NetherRealm Studios’ game for 2017. Being a game depicting one of the many alternate universes under DC Comics, the series itself also has a comic series showing and explaining everything that happened within this alternate timeline. You can read them up HERE or watch someone explain it HERE.
The game is the successor to Injustice : Gods Among Us, released in 2013. As a sequel, the game itself has many improvements of the first game, most notably: a faster movement speed for characters, environmental intractables that can be blocked, moves to evade or end combos early. As a Netherrealm Studios (NRS) game, the gameplay itself is refined for a fighting game, with similar aspect to Mortal Kombat’s ‘juggling’ combat style where repeated attacks to the opponent in whilst in the air will initiate a combo.
Similar to Mortal Kombat, the game features a somewhat long campaign mode for you to play. Unlike other modern NRS games, this game allows different paths to choose from, with 2 different endings. Borrowing the idea of Living Towers from Mortal Kombat X, Injustice 2 has a similar system that goes all out on what you can do. The Multiverse has different ‘Earths’ one can choose to play. They are limited time only and a new one will pop up once one of the ‘Earths’ expires. But don’t worry, they will reappear sometime soon.
The biggest change would be the fact that there is a gear system. It allows players to fine tune their favourite fighters to gain an edge over AI fighters in the Multiverse. This also affects public multiplayer matches, where fine tuned fighters with a mix of competent players will make them extremely deadly. Different special moves are also added to add flavor and different combos for different players. Said new special moves are disabled in the competitive playlists for the sake a balancing.
The game includes 39 playable fighters, 10 of which are DLCs. Certain fighters have premium skins which changes them to another version of the same fighter. For example, for the Flash, his premier skin allows you to play as the Reverse Flash.
For the base game alone, most prices ranges between 55SGD to 90SGD. The other versions will cost more, some at around 120SGD and the most pricey one at 145SGD. If you are a DC fan or a fighting game fan, this game is no doubt a very good choice.
