I’m usually all for Honest Trailers, even for the films and games I dearly love. However, the new Injustice 2 Honest Trailer video feels like the team are grasping at straws, especially when you consider just how good the game actually is.
When you think about it, it’s a bit like mocking Usain Bolt during a race you know he is going to win. That’s what the new Smosh Games video feels like. While there are a few funnies here and there, a lot of the humour falls flat. Who is still making Martha jokes in 2017? Both Batman and Superman have moved past that already.
At the end of the video, the team go about renaming some of DC’s characters. Black Canary becomes Britney Spears. Brainiac becomes Dr. Octopus. Catwoman becomes Crazy Catlady.
Let’s hope the next Honest Game Trailer is a little better.
They’ve taken down powerful foes, evil villains and now, must face their greatest enemy yet – micro transactions. It’s Injustice 2!
