ComiConverse contributor Nickie Novelist sets out to see whether NetherRealm Studios' and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's Injustice 2 lives up to the hype.

Doing Justice To Injustice 2

Fighting games either stress you out or relax you. For the most part I found this game relaxing—a good way to relieve everyday tension. There are several options for play. You can play the RPG-style game or the Multiverse where you fight to level up your character and earn new gear. Both are rewarding.

The story line of this game centers around the conflict between Batman and Superman. Before jumping to conclusions, it is not Batman vs. Superman.  Batman is attempting to keep Superman in prison. In the game, a new group “The Society," ultimately controlled by Brainic, injects tension by forcing Batman to free Superman.

The RPG part of this game was fun. I’m a DC fan, but the story stands alone. Great dialogue between the characters made the game come alive and the voice acting never felt forced. This cast of characters was rendered with depth. Everyone has a bit of a backstory.

The Multiverse portion of this game is a never-ending source of game play that allows you to build your characters strength, defense, health, and ability by equipping them with new gear. You get the opportunity to create a custom character. The Multiverse gives players access to parallel worlds in the DC universe.

Each character has “super moves” and enhanced special moves. Characters can use their environment as they fight. Almost every stage has a transition available. This sends you or your opponent through an animated scene that gives them a rough ride before landing onto a new stage. These transitions are entertaining to watch and bring down your opponent’s health. A win, win for any gamer.

Besides random goodies earned at the end of the fight, you will receive “Mother Boxes” that allow choices of gear and a chance to obtain epic gear. Epic gear looks amazing and give your character's attributes a significant boost. If you don’t want to wait and earn gear the old-fashioned way, you can buy Source Crystals (with real money) which allow for cosmetic adjustments for fighters such as shaders and premier skins. And then there are the Mods. In the Multiverse, some worlds have crazy mods like playing upside-down or characters fight faster or slower than normal. This constant change and variety prevents boredom. There are hours, and hours of enjoyment to be had.

In addition to the Multiverse and story mode, you can play online with others. For me personally, that’s not my thing, but I understand its appeal and appreciate that the game includes the option.

No game is perfect. There were several times I felt the button execution didn’t work when it should have. Some Multiverse levels were ridiculously hard. For an expert gamer this might provide an exciting challenge, but for me, it was more frustrating than fun. The variety in challenge level does, however, speak to the range of game play. Any level gamer can pick up this game and enjoy it. I recommend picking up this game. You will not lose interest anytime soon. If the 29 characters that come with game aren’t enough, downloadable content featuring additional characters is coming. Be a hero or a villain and enjoy. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to get back to leveling-up all my characters.
