What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the mobile version of Injustice 2, like its counterpart on game consoles, is a bloodless fighting game that isn't for little kids but is fine for those old enough to read superhero comics or see their movies. While it has such characters as Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman using their fists, feet, special abilities, and weapons to beat the snot out of each other, there's no blood or gore. Some of the women wear sexy outfits and sometimes bend over seductively. There's no overt sexual content, use of drugs or alcohol, or profanity. Game may prompt players to want related comic books, action figures, T-shirts, or movie tickets or to use real money to buy in-game items. Read the app's privacy policy on the game's website to find out about the information collected and shared.

What's it about?

Though set in the same alternate universe as the console version, and in the aftermath of the original game's story, the mobile version of INJUSTICE 2 doesn't really have a story. Instead, you just take on a series of one-on-one fistfights that pit such iconic superheroes as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman against both their archenemies and their superhero friends.

Is it any good?

With solid controls and an interesting cast of characters, this superhero fighting game will keep fans of comic books and brawlers equally entertained. Like the console version, the mobile edition of Injustice 2 has such iconic DC Comics characters as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, and the other members of the Justice League battling their friends and enemies in one-on-one fisticuffs. Along with using such tools as Batman's batarangs and Wonder Woman's shield, every character also has their own rechargeable special attack, some of which are quite elaborate and painful. What sets this version apart from the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 editions, though, is that while brawls are one-on-one, you actually employ a team of three and can tag in a compatriot at almost any time. There are even fights where your allies switch automatically. But what this edition lacks is a story driving the action; while it has an intro movie, it's still just a series of brawls. You also have to play through a bunch of these solo matches before you get to fight anyone online. Lastly, as you can probably guess, while the controls work well, it's still easier to play a fast fighting game like this with a controller than a tablet's touchscreen. Still, if you're sitting in a movie theater waiting for the next superhero movie to start, Injustice 2 is as entertaining as reading a comic book.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about violence in video games. Does it make you feel differently about the violence when there's no blood or gore? How about when you're fighting another person, as opposed to a talking gorilla who's really well-read?

  • Talk about money. What makes more sense to you: Earning new characters by playing, or spending your money to get a new character you could wait to earn? Is there a happy medium?

  • Discuss comic books. You may love the movies and the games, but have you considered reading the comic books? What about other books?
