Small details in Injustice 2 only true fans noticed
Injustice 2 is more than just a fighting game. It is, like Injustice: Gods Among Us before it, a full-on love letter to everything that makes the DC Comics universe great. Sure, the main storyline might focus on a Superman who's turned bad, flying in the face of nearly 80 years of the Big Blue Boy Scout's history, but don't be fooled: the folks at NetherRealm Studios, where Injustice 2 was developed, are among the biggest DC fans out there.
Every member of the cast, even the uncharacteristically evil ones, feel like their pen-and-paper counterparts. The world's surprisingly deep lore is like a greatest hits compilation of DC's long and storied history, with elements from different eras blended together into one fresh, seamless whole. And then there are, of course, all those Easter eggs and other references—the small details which you may not pick up on your first, second, or 50th time playing the game, but which make Injustice 2 feel like one of the deepest, richest DC Comics experiences ever put on a console. Don't be put off by the post-apocalyptic setting: NetherRealm loves DC just as much as you do. Maybe even more.
