    "I've been playing this for a couple of years now. I really like how interactive it is. It's a classic RPG with some great quests and fun battles. I highly recommend the enhanced version. I'm not giving it a 5 because there's definitely a learning curve to pick it up, but once you're drawn in you won't want to stop."

    "I love this game, it's got everything I love in a game: bright colors, wacky characters, epic boss battles, and cartoons. It makes me feel like a kid again, seriously, I spend way too much time goofing around at work on this game than I should. The only downside to playing at work is I have to keep that awesome soundtrack muted, but I blast it at home. Definitely the best game of the year for me."

    "Injustice 2 is another solid entry into the fighting genre by NetherRealm Studios. These guys are the ones behind the Mortal Kombat games. So, they basically have developed a Mortal Kombat fighting game but set in the super hero universe. It's awesome and so much fun to play. Do yourself a favor and get it! This has got to be one of the best games of the year."
