My Hero One's Justice 2
Top Critic Average
My Hero One's Justice 2 touches up some of the nuances of the original's combat and builds an impressive roster, but doesn't bring its A-game when it comes to offering much beyond a few good matches.
Ultimately, though, what stings the most about seeing My Hero One's Justice 2 is how much hasn't changed since the first game. It's still very much a reasonably well-made and pretty anime arena fighter, but it's nothing more than that. Even the considerably messier One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows at least had the ambition to try to capture the source material's spirit through its main single-player mode. My Hero Academia fans looking for exactly that will be satisfied, but once again it seems Bandai Namco have opted to coast rather than adopt U.A.'s "Plus Ultra" philosophy.
My Hero One's Justice 2 is a great brawler. It carries on the fine work put in on the first game, wraps the more recent story beats into a playable form, and buffs the already excellent visuals up to a new Shonen shine. It's not a great jumping on point for newcomers, at least story-wise, but it remains a fun, approachable fighter based on one of the best anime shows of recent years.
A bit superior to the previous iteration and spectacular without a doubt, it still is too basic compared to the 'big bosses' of the genre.

If you're a fan of the anime, you're going to enjoy this and you might even come to enjoy the flawed fighting mechanics. For anybody else, My Hero One's Justice 2 is just another aggressively mediocre anime fighter, the latest in a long line of them.
A game made for My Hero Academia fans. Easy, very simple, a bit repetetive but fun.

My Hero One's Justice 2 is an incredibly fun and over the top anime fighting game, with a ton of modes to play. Although there's not been a massive amount of new content added since it's predecessor, the combat is good enough to keep you coming back for more
An improvement in every way to the last game, My Hero One's Justice 2 is a wonderful title for fans of My Hero Academia. With an improved roster and enhanced gameplay, it's time to go Plus Ultra with this fighting game at last.
What it does, it does competently, but My Hero One’s Justice 2 has a long way to go before it can claim the King of Fighters title.
Once the novelty of playing a game within the My Hero Academia world wears off, all that's left is another fairly average arena brawler. Different modes aren't enough to make the title stand out, and ultimately, My Hero One's Justice 2 offers an experience which, although enjoyable, is forgettable and somewhat bland. It's safe to say that we expected more from this sequel.
