Okay, so Injustice 2 isn’t a Batman game per se. He is the main protagonist of the game’s story, however, which has him leading a resistance against a Superman turned evil.
If you’ve ever wanted to pit Batman against Batman, or any other DC superhero or villain, Injustice 2 is the game for you. Developed by NetherRealm Studio, the gameplay is understandably very similar to that of the recent Mortal Kombat entries, only with the finishing moves very much toned down. DC doesn’t want to you to see The Batman rip out The Joker’s heart, after all. Superheroes don’t do things like that.
The great thing about Injustice 2 is that even if you don’t like going online to fight against others, it has plenty of content for you. Its story mode is very cinematic and will take you a fair few hours to complete, then there are towers to tackle where you can earn rewards to customise your fighters. It’s one of the best superhero-based fighting games ever made, and the inclusion of Batman means fans of The Dark Knight will probably want to check it out.
