NetherRealm may have made a name for themselves with a big reboot of Mortal Kombat and last year’s Mortal Kombat X sequel, but the best fighting game to come out of that developer’s library doesn’t involve copious amounts of blood and gore. 2013’s Injustice Gods Among Us felt like the bastard child of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, a fighter that hit the sweet spot between those two franchises to deliver an epic superhero beatdown years before Chris Evans was dropping an aircraft on Iron Man in a civil dispute.
With a sequel on the way, NetherRealm is also attempting to throw a skyscraper-sized spanner into the entire fighting game genre as well, with a Gear system that tells the idea of fighting game balance to go throw itself into the nearest star. So how does Injustice 2 handle then with that shiny new Gear System?
