‘Multiversus’ Isn’t Just a ‘Smash Bros.’ Clone, It’s Good On Its Own Terms

Multiversus made me empathize with the guy who shot Batman’s parents, which is how I know it is a solid fighting game. After being projectile spammed and pinball combo’ed by the caped crusader’s batarang, I too would consider having a quick chat with the Wayne family in a back alley. That I am able to, so completely, despise the experience of playing against a good Batman player means that Multiversus has given its players the exact tools they need to make interesting decisions and exciting fights, which is what fighting games are all about. Whether those players choose to use those tools for interesting or rage inducing ends is up to them.
