The revival of the Mortal Kombat series via Mortal Kombat 9 has spread through into their DC output, starting with 2013's very good Injustice: Gods Among Us and into its sequel Injustice 2. You may be wondering where our Injustice 2 review is.

Players can also experience Injustice 2 for mobile, which is available now as a free download on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and from Google Play for Android devices. Injustice 2's multiplayer certainly doesn't suffer from launch issues that plagued other fighting games, but it still has issues. It's a grim setup, but took equal influences from pulpy comic book plots and the lighter side of the franchise, like the Justice League cartoons from the 2000s. Players can play from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game, from classic fan favorites such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl and Aquaman, to astonishing new villains like Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, and Deadshot. Fighting game fans familiar with Mortal Kombat's Living Towers mode will understand what Multiverse mode - pitched as a never-ending series of alternate universe Earths, each with their own particular quirks - is all about. As a fighting game especially, this makes it only more impressive.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad both made enough money at the global box office to fill the Batcave, but received poor reviews. The microtransaction and loot system, however, becomes needlessly complex, with several different types of currency to keep tabs on - it's easy enough to ignore if you're not fussed, but you can imagine players continually grinding for drops rather than having fun with it. You can also opt out of using this stat-changing gear if you want as well. It's a unique experience that compiles all that the studio has learned from its games and gives them a voice all of their own. You make a compelling case for why Batman is definitely winning against Superman in this scenario, and your neighbor doesn't really buy it. Superman has laser eyes.

Don't expect to see the Gear system implemented beyond the cosmetic stage however, as Boon explained how "regulation play" will factor into tournaments.

Esports Pro: How do things like the Clash mode, for example, that you guys have added, how does that play into the psyche of the fighting game community? Do you have to interface with them more? You can use this as reference to get an ideal how the game operates with said feature. "Some of these characters you can really push [the boundaries] a little bit because that's their personality". "It was borne from the desire to allow players to look any way they want to". Character training gives a brief overview and the bare basics for each face on the roster, but the gap between those introductory fundamentals and the 20-hit, 600-damage combos is wide, and Injustice 2 does little to guide beginners across it. Common and rare gear pieces might simply augment one of four character statistics: strength, defense, health, or ability. Among all the "problem" characters, Swamp Thing "worked out great" even if characters like him made NetherRealm anxious. It's a neat addition, but it doesn't help that many fights still feel contrived. Between the different shaders you can unlock and options for arms, leggings, chest plates and shirts, helmets and headpieces, and new weapons, there are a surprising amount of options for those of us that enjoy dressing for success.

When it comes time to have all of these characters beat each other down, the results are handsome.

Every arena is detailed and bursting with color, from the bright purple beams of Brainiac's warship to the rich orange sunset looming over the extravagant kingdom of Kandaq.

Also available now is the Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition Injustice 2 and the Digital Deluxe Edition. Asides from a choice at the end of the game, there isn't much of a reason to go back and replay the story.
