Injustice 2 (PC) Review

For Great Justice!

HIGH Absolute tons of content to indulge in.

LOW I’ve suffered from a few hard crashes, including system lock-ups.

WTF Batman using a blameless bar patron as a weapon isn’t canon, surely?

The one good thing that came out of those terrible Mortal Kombat movies was the soundtrack, or more specifically, the opening song from the soundtrack. Not only does it get the heart pumping and the blood going when you first hear it, it also gets the feet moving too.

That must be what compelled these "cosplayers"—at least I think they are cosplayers—to just break out the ghetto blaster and dance like fools.

Rebooted into Respectability

HIGH The story mode is one of the best ever seen in a fighter.

LOW The AI vacillates between "invincible" and "lobotomized".

WTF Shang Tsung's "Joker" fatality.

Can Mortal Kombat survive without the ultraviolence?

I've been putting a good amount of time into the new Mortal Kombat, and if you read this blog, you'll know I'm a fan of this latest iteration. I have much admiration for the work that NetherRealm Studios has put into the project, and in my view, this is the best Mortal Kombat of them all, bar none.

Consoleation: The war on used games—greed-ality!

I was excited for Mortal Kombat. The demo played pretty well, albeit a little on the slow side. The special editions of the game looked pretty neat. It felt like a throwback rather than an attempt to keep expanding in the direction that the games took during the last console generation. It seemed like a day-one purchase for me, if only to support the revival of a fighting game that used to share the spotlight with Street Fighter some 15 years ago.

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe Review

OSHA-Approved Kombat

HIGH People want to play a game as Batman. This game allows them to do that.

LOW The fatalities are universally terrible.

WTF Here's a memo, Midway. I own this game. I'm not standing in an arcade with people in line to play. So, if I want to pause the game so I can look up a website to find out how to do Batman's… ugh…"Heroic Brutality"… then I should damn well be able to pause the game.
