Think of the DC Comics universe. Some of their past films were very dark. Currently, this is not the case, as some of the more recent films like “Shazam” have been fairly light hearted. Okay, I’m getting off topic. I’m here to tell you “Injustice 2” takes the dark material of the DC universe and cranks it up to a 13. I’m also here to tell you that as a first time fighting game player, this game is incredible. Let’s get some into the game’s aspects.
Gameplay: Gameplay in this game is great. It’s very deep, but never gets horribly confusing.
Base mechanics: The game has 3 basic fighting attacks. Light attack, medium attack, and heavy attack. All of these can be combined with specific button combinations for a character to perform a specific move. (Ex: Back, Forward on analog stick with X on PS4 or A on Xbox One will cause Batman to perform a power slide.) these moves can be hard to pull off, but are easy to pull off once you get the hang of things. Hitting attack buttons in a certain combination can perform a combo. Pressing O on PS4 or B on Xbox One performs a character’s special move.
To block, hold down the left analog stick. Finally, you can perform a super move with using L2 + R2 on PS4 or LT + RT on Xbox One. To perform a super move, you need to build one up by taking and inflicting damage.
Story: The story here is not the greatest, but it does its job well. That’s basically all I have to say about that. 7/10
Characters: The roster in this game is fairly balanced. For example, the character Bane is powerful but is slow. All of the characters have a unique move set to learn and how to counter. 10/10
Also, a little bonus, the Local Multiplayer is insanely fun. Fighting either a friend on your skill level or an inexperienced button masher, (I’m looking at you Dad 😏) it is still a crazy good time and I recommend it to anyone planning on playing on the game. 10/10
Overall, Injustice 2 is a fun, balanced game for either casual players, competitive players, or people looking to waste time, with characters fit for every play style. 9/10
