  1. Justice League Heroes may offer teams of two instead of teams of four when you play, but its superior two-player dynamic and far superior story make Justice League Heroes more fun than "Marvel Ultimate Alliance," despite the eye-candy edge held by Activision’s title.
  2. One of the most celebrated super heroes team gets a pretty decent outing, with intelligent level design and plenty of variety in the gameplay.
  3. A repetitive action game with comic book heroes. The lack of variation and camera issues are its biggest problems. The game is at its best when playing with a friend. [Jan 2007]
  4. Like a good sack of White Castle cheeseburgers Justice League Heroes isn’t very good quality, and yet it’s still satisfying in some strange way.
  5. JLH is a lot of fun, especially if you're a fan of the major characters.

    The story is dull, the locations sparse and empty, and the camera is extremely annoying most of the time. [Issue #147, p.80]
  7. The most distinguishing feature of Justice League Heroes is its complete lack of any. The game’s one, toted new feature, the ability to pick up rocks and sticks, is literally primitive.

    Finally, a GOOD DC game has finally arrived. Personally, I feel that this is the best super hero game I've played so far. The major difference between this and Marvel Ultimate Allience/X-Men Legends is that this game has only 2 characters to play with, allowing for more strategy, more difficulty, and more individual strength. In MUA, I played it with a friend and we got bored of it rather quickly because the game was too easy. 4 players can easily take out even some of the super villians without having to worry about much of anything. Justice League Heroes doesn't have that problem. 2 Players offer more need to strategize and not just blindly jump in and kick some butt. Also, if you happen to be by yourself, you won't die on the spot like you will in MUA. With good graphics, good sound, and a GREAT storyline, I personally say that I had the most fun playing this superhero game than all the others. This is the best superhero game for me. I just never thought it would've been a DC game... Expand

    I love this game. There are some major flaws like the top down camera and character selection problems BUT, this is the onyl game that lets me be DC heroes actually rather well. So This game is just my inner geek fix. Expand

    Really good game! I've always been a Marvel fan, but I have to admit that this game is so much better than x-men legends. You have fewer heroes, less powers and less stages, but much more fun! The game is more dynamic and less confuse. The heroes have less super powers, but they are so much more fun to use. If you are not a RPG freak who wants to spend hours and hours working on the ability of your heroes, you going to love this game! Expand

    I feel this is a pretty good game. This is justice league: legends with just 2 characters on screen. I like how the mags say its the same martians and robots and stuff. Yet legends Was the same thing with the soldiers and that game was hailed for greatness. I like the game the voice acting is good and the The powers are nice. And it is the World's Finest. The story isn't that bad. Expand

    I'm a big DC fan but unfortunately I wasn't overly thrilled with this game. The storyline is good though.
