First Look – Injustice 2 Gameplay – Seeing Red?

Were you as skeptical as I was when the first Injustice game came out? Don’t get me wrong, I was excited, I just had vague memories of the DC Comics vs Mortal Kombat game on the Xbox 360. But E3 is right around the corner, and it seems WB Games couldn’t wait to show us Injustice 2.

“If you want to break someone — mentally, physically, emotionally — wait until they’re happy. Let them live and love and thrive. Once they recognize the value of a life well lived… THAT’S when you move in for the kill. Because you can’t take anything from someone who has nothing to lose.” –Tarn

The Decepticon Justice Division has the crew of the Lost Light pinned down (except for the crew back on the shop who are busy staging a mutiny) and Megatron’s acting very strange. Click the jump for preview pages and a review of Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #51.
