Injustice 2 Guide: How To Unlock Darkseid

Watch: Injustice 2 Launch Trailer Features Gameplay And Steve Aoki's Music

That's not to say that Injustice 2 isn't interesting; it's just a bit less wild.

Some context: Injustice was a prequel comic (strike one, because prequels) to a video game of the same name (strike two, because video game spin-offs are "historically, not a benchmark of quality" according to Taylor) and a digital-only series, which meant that-at first-it wouldn't be printed and sold in comic shops or bookstores, instead directly beamed to apps like Comixology or Kindle. Four years later, the studio is back with a sequel, Injustice 2. The Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition provides access to all three upcoming Fighter Packs, for a total of nine playable characters in addition to the main game.

From the very simple tutorial system, Injustice 2 is a proper "pick-up-and-play" fighting game. And in order to get on with that, you had to be damn good at the game. Much like the laggy bouts, the times in which the ping bar wasn't a full-strength green were minimal for me. It's a hook that kept me wanting to play hours on-end. The combat is still top-notch, the story mode is practically an interactive DC animated film, and there's plenty of hooks to keep you playing for weeks if not months.

Eurogamer recommends Injustice 2 in its review: "Despite annoyances with the gear system and the loot boxes, Injustice 2 is a huge amount of fun". NetherRealm has delivered a fighting game that can be enjoyed by new players and pros alike in ways that go beyond pure competition. However, you'll need lots of Source Crystals to tinker with items you already own, and unlock the most sought after items, like the premier skins. As a result, I felt somewhat discouraged from jumping between characters so that I could focus on leveling up a few.

We already told you about how Brainiac is available as an unlockable in Injustice 2, with you also being able to purchase him. Still, if you're willing to put the time in, there's a ton of fun to be had mixing and matching pieces until you've crafted a character that's truly your own. Each of them have a variety of looks - from comics accurate, to Injustice follow-ups, to even Flarrowverse styles - and the graphics for each character are stunning.

Like the Living Towers mode from NetherRealm's other fighter - Mortal Kombat X - the Multiverse gives players the chance to travel through a series of parallel worlds within the DC Universe to challenge opponents under a range of goals and handicaps. I've actually picked up several techniques doing so. Among all the "problem" characters, Swamp Thing "worked out great" even if characters like him made NetherRealm anxious.

I've always been more of a Marvel guy than a DC fan. Players will work through two different sets of levelling: one for their gamercard and one for each of Injustice's fighters. His example: If a player wants a defensive Gorilla Grodd, they can outfit Grodd with gear with high health and defense.

Franchise stalwarts like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are joined by lesser-known characters like Dr. Fate the gold-helmeted mystic, and Atrocitus the rage-filled, blood-barfing Red Lantern (accompanied by his partner Dex-Starr, a talking murderous cat).

When it comes time to have all of these characters beat each other down, the results are lovely. Regardless of what you thought of its patently ridiculous story, NetherRealm knows how to make a damn good fighting game, bringing a level of cinematic flair and WWE-tier silliness to superhero fights that hadn't ever been seen before.

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. Fortunately, NetherRealm has done an excellent job of making the game's inventory and load out interfaces feel elegant.
