Kids say (7):

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.
