In short we can say that the PC version of Injustice 2 is made with extreme care. As we already knew the story mode is interesting, the challenges are different and the combat system is adequate; what scared us, given the precedents was the transposition of the title in terms of quality, not so much graphic, but technical. Fortunately, however, our doubts and our fears have been reassured by what is a very good porting that maintains an excellent graphic quality, accompanied by an adequate technical level. The title runs smoothly, without frame drops, always remaining on the fixed, but stable 60 FPS. Even the cutscenes are beautiful, although they lock at 30 FPS. In short, players on PC, if you are looking for a brawl on the DC Universe, with Injustice 2 you will certainly make a good choice!

I believe Injustice 2 to be Netherealms best game to date, vastly surpassing the original Injustice while also punching aside Mortal kombat X. The small revisions to the combat system have provided a deeper system for dedicated fans to sink their teeth into without losing the sense of fun and accessibility for more relaxed players.

All-in-all, Injustice 2 is a polished experience, one that highlights the professional and well-practiced craft of NetherRealm Studios. The developer takes their Mortal Kombat experience and gives Injustice 2 all they have in their arsenal. Astonishing graphics, flexible mechanics, quality story, and fitting audio make Injustice 2 riveting and addicting. If NetherRealm continues to put forth this much effort into future titles, such as any possible upcoming Mortal Kombat installments, the company will achieve heights far greater than they already have. Players who love fighting games and DC Comics fans will find coming across a better game almost impossible. The game’s well-rounded roster and fresh Gear System cater to different playstyles, and the ever-changing Multiverse, along with upcoming DLC, will keep Injustice 2’s heart beating for quite some time.

After loving ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ so much, I’d been eagerly anticipating Injustice 2. There was just this little part of me that was worried that it wouldn’t live up to the hype. You know what though? It exceeded all of my expectations, in turn providing one of the best fighting experiences I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing in my lifetime of gaming. I’m often guilty of riding high on a video game after I’ve enjoyed it, but everything about Injustice 2 is simply fine-tuned to perfection. The slick and accessible fighting mechanics, the fantastic roster made up of DC super heroes and villains, the addictive customisation options, the multiple game modes that offer something new every day, and the jaw dropping visuals – they all come together to create one of the finest fighting games that has ever been released.

Injustice 2 is a lot more of what I loved about the first game. The gear really adds to the single player aspect. I find myself grinding characters and decking them out with the latest fashion. It is addictive, and will likely keep me playing for months. It is impossible to argue the value they packed into this game. Whether their style of fighting game is up your alley is another story. Injustice 2 won't suddenly change anyone's opinion of the developer's work, but it will thrill fans of it.

Injustice 2 is an awesome fighting game. It has a solid story mode and an incredible variety in the Multiverse and customization modes. The online mode is very good as well. There are some new mechanics in the gameplay and new characters, but the game's foundation is very much alike its predecessor, and it could have a little more innovation and variety, as seen when Mortal Kombat (2011) evolved to Mortal Kombat X.

It doesn't matter if you're not a comic book guy (or girl!), You don't like Mortal Kombat or you just hate fighting games. Injustice 2 is an experience that you won't regret.

The good folks at NetherRealm Studios made this fighting game much more than it should have been. They have essentially created an enjoyable balance between story, multiplayer and online experiences. The story mode is incredibly immersive, the multiplayer is teeming with a richer gameplay experience, including multiverse, which mixes familiar comic storylines with the fighting gameplay core, and the online modes are just as good as you want them to be. Nothing seems like a filler. If they could get rid of the microtransaction for Darkseid, then it will be a complete circle of near perfection. Until then, it's a great game.

Injustice 2's fights improve on Gods Among Us in nearly every way, specifically addressing fan concerns about movement speed and giving you new ways to burn meter. Visually, the DC roll call shines even as they star in a flat and unnecessarily grim story. The unrivaled amount of single-player content to explore, especially the highlight Multiverse mode, and the height of Injustice 2's skill ceiling make it an easy environment in which to lose hours of your day without ever even challenging another human… or giant telekinetic gorilla, as it were.

Injustice 2 may have the best single-player campaign of any fighting game. NetherRealm has hit a solid groove with their fighting games. A few new blocking mechanics help to add a touch more balance to the game's environmental damage options, and the loot system is second to none. Microtransactions are always a tricky issue with any game, but by sticking to cosmetic items, purchases using additional cash aren't necessary in order to get full enjoyment out of the game. Fighting game and DC fans alike should add this game to their collection as soon as possible.

Like a loaded hero sandwich, Injustice 2 serves up a stellar fighting game that is not only mechanically solid but also packed to the gills with plenty of "fixins."

Thanks to a deep combat system, a chunky narrative and a plethora of collectibles and unlockables to collect, however, Injustice 2 is proof that fighting games can be full-fledged experiences that aren't one-dimensional.

It is the lightest possible complaint to say that I had a great time with a videogame, and I have already ordered the PS4 version of the first game to go back and play. I've also read the first year of the tie-in comic book to find out more about this weird fork universe of DC Comics. I guess I'm now waiting for Injustice 3 to come out. I need to know what's up with Swamp Thing and the wild world of a nature worth fighting for.

There's a lot to offer, and it will take you hundreds of hours to unlock everything, let alone attain the Platinum Trophy.

Injustice 2 is a very solid fighting game that has not changed a whole lot mechanically from the last offering. Visually it is a step forward, but the narrative is a step back. I cannot entirely share the feeling that this is going to be a title that is meant to milk out additional money via a combination of microtransactions and DLC, which is a bit of a turnoff, but the variety of modes and quality roster do help to take the sting out of that, because there is already so much content available.
