    It's got the heroes, but none of their charm. And it's yet another example of the Justice League idea never reaching its potential as a game...at least on the handheld side of things.
  2. On the Nintendo DS, Justice League Heroes is a halfhearted beat-'em-up game that does very little to make you feel as if you're controlling your favorite comic book characters.
  3. Justice League Heroes for the DS lacks intense battles and super heroics of the console version but at least it gives us a game with a lot of cool characters and a lot to unlock.
  4. The only way you'd really want to play this game is if you're a diehard fan of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and The Flash and you don't mind beating up stupid robots for hours on end in dull levels.
  5. The long tradition of execrable license tie-ins continues with Justice League Heroes for DS...Even a hardcore Justice League fan will be hard pressed to enjoy this one.
  6. Unfortunately Justice League Heroes is one of those games that gives licensed properties a bad name by failing on almost every level and squandering an opportunity to create something that does this franchise the "justice" it deserves.

    A disappointment, considering that the Xbox, PS2 and GBA versions are so much fun to blaze through.

    This dull, clunky mess of a 3D beat-'em-up suffers from sloppy hit detection, brutal sllowdown, and yawn-inducing levels that throw the same basic grunts at you over and over. [Dec. 2006, p.106]
  9. All in all, this is just a watered down port of an already mediocre game that is nothing short of crappy.

    I hate when the makers of a game make comments like Goyo grub must be doing. This game stinks and isn't any fun. It's clunky, slow, I hate when the makers of a game make comments like Goyo grub must be doing. This game stinks and isn't any fun. It's clunky, slow, and there is no reason for it to be a "DC heroes" game. Save your money for something else! Full Review »

    Too laggy with multiple enemies on the screen, it makes the Flash look like he's trotting through the level. Tracking mechanism lacks Too laggy with multiple enemies on the screen, it makes the Flash look like he's trotting through the level. Tracking mechanism lacks control. Gameplay and levels are repetitive. Full Review »
