The story mode for Injustice 2 mobile is now available and it’s an interesting experience to say the least. Having the opening chapter with the worldwide release is good, as it gives fans a taste of the story. With the console version of the game coming out next Monday, it’s clear that the mobile title will help garner interest.
However, there are some things that fans might want to know about the story mode, due to some confusing elements. Admittedly, they don’t completely break the game, but some gamers might get frustrated with the way some things are executed. Without further ado, here are some things to keep in mind when playing the mobile game’s story mode.
Collect Story Achievements
After your first fight with Cyborg, it’s easy to assume that this is all the story available thus far. That isn’t the case, since Injustice 2 mobile requires you to collect story achievements before going to the next chapter. Since there’s no indication that the additional chapters are unlocked, it’s easy to assume that there’s only one fight.
Players will control Batman throughout all the fights in the story thus far, so mobile fans won’t have trouble playing. Batman is the first character available after all and the mode even gives players access to his third special move. As the caped crusader, mobile players will take on Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Superman and Damian Wayne during a flashback sequence.
Cutscenes Are Buggy
Simply put, the cutscenes in Injustice 2 mobile tend to be buggy, resulting in some game crashes and static imagery. We had to restart the game once, due to the cutscenes hanging, though the audio continued playing normally. A simple restart was enough to fix this, though that wasn’t the end to the mobile title’s problems.
After losing to Robin, attempts were made to skip the cutscenes and get to the next fight right away. However, attempting to skip the cutscenes forces the game to crash, leading to a restart and re-watching the same cinematic. It was really annoying, so players better not skip these cutscenes and start winning the battles right away.
Despite all of this, the story mode for Injustice 2 mobile was a nice appetizer for the upcoming console version. The PS4 and Xbox One version will have more depth to it, with custom gear and alternate endings.
Injustice 2 will hit consoles next Monday on May 16, with Darkseid as a pre-order bonus. The mobile version is now available worldwide, or will be soon for other countries.
