Gorgeous, boasting facial capture technology that finally vaulted over LA Noire’s now admittedly creepy uncanny valley benchmark, Injustice 2 was every bit the silver screen spectacle that it presented itself as and more. And it wasn’t too bad to play either. Retaining the razor-sharp edge of gameplay from the first title in the series, Injustice 2 still played like the bastard child of Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat.

The biggest draw for Legendary Edition is its inclusion of every single DLC character released for Injustice 2. From DC Comics comes Atom, Starfire, Enchantress, Black Manta, and Red Hood, while Mortal Kombat’s Sub-Zero and Raiden represent Netherrealms Studio. Even non-DC comic icons like Hellboy and all four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are playable, which makes up for the lack of John Constantine. The number of unique characters that are immediately available in the Legendary Edition is a huge selling point, especially when combined with the Premiere skins.

The cutscenes that flawlessly transition into fights have some real Hollywood quality background tracks. Full orchestral music is supporting the pride that’s Injustice 2, and then we still got the voice acting and sound effects.

Fantastic smooth, quick fighting mechanics NetherRealm is known for

Currency in Injustice 2 has two basic uses, either to get more gear (credits, guild credits, regen coins) or to manipulate the levelling system and transmogrification of items/skins (source crystals). The various currencies are all easily earned, with the exception of source crystals. You are most certainly not forced to buy them, but the temptation is real, especially in the later scenarios, where the desire to power up can warp your sense of logic and skilful play.

First off, the game is very very chio! I love being able to see all the details in the graphics. The lighting effects do a good job of differentiating the moods across the arenas.
