  1. The game really falls flat, and feels more like a hack and slash title than a superhero game.
  2. On the plus side, this is the first game that successfully makes Superman a fun character to play.

    You'll likely have fun with Justice League Heroes if you enjoy the classic dungeon crawl games that Snowblind has previously developed, and even moreso if you're a fan of comic books and the Justice League of America in particular.

    Justice here isn't always pretty. But it gets the job done. Barely. [Dec. 2006, p.68]
  5. The arcade-style fist fights can get a little repetitive but DC Comic fans should get a thrill out of teaming up their favourite characters.

    As good, if not slightly better than Marvel Ultimate Alliance - it really just depends which company's heroes you prefer. [Christmas 2006, p.82]
  7. 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.
  8. The lack of character selection throughout most of the game, the limit of two-players, and a few frustrating moments when special attacks decide not to work take away from what could have been a stellar superhero title.
  9. JLH is a lot of fun, especially if you're a fan of the major characters.
  10. 65
    Every hero has a weakness, and Justice League Heroes' kryptonite is its laughably lame story. Wait a second, wasn't this game written by an actual comic writer? That's why it's sad that the story is frickin' terrible.

    My suggestion: Get the most from this game by playing with your own superfriends. [Dec. 2006, p.123]
  12. 64
    The core of the game works well. In fact, if you just admired it from afar, you might mistake JLH for a great game. But the level design is as basic and uninspired as it can get and the enemies are just an endless throng of nameless robots and Martians.

    The story is dull, the locations sparse and empty, and the camera is extremely annoying most of the time. [Issue #147, p.80]

    We can't pretend that Justice League is anything but a mindless beat-em-up. [Dec. 2006, p.138]
  15. 60
    This game lacks Batman's attitude, Green Lantern's gadgets, The Flash's quickness, and Superman's strength. It's a mediocre action-RPG through and through.
  16. If you're looking for groundbreaking gameplay and a thrilling story - or even differences between the Xbox and PS2 versions, other than HD support for Xbox - you'll be disappointed. Justice League Heroes is a pretty standard action RPG that's neither offensive nor alluring.
  17. 60
    Justice League Heroes is not perfect, and it’s definitely not innovative, but it makes a solid action adventure out of the familiar gameplay and well-loved characters.
  18. The game’s RPG spin is a positive one, and the potential for multi-player missions certainly lifts Snowblind Studio’s effort above the banal, but the superheroes that the developer has attempted to honour here deserve much more bang for their buck.
  19. While a decent dungeon crawler in its own right, it just feels unimpressive in comparison to its rivals. Unless you must have a DC Comics dungeon crawler, you'd be better off looking at "Marvel Ultimate Alliance."

The story is great and all the little details in the background is fun to see/listen to. The camera could be better but it is not that big of a deal and does not matter that much. The only thing that i find not to be good about the game is that their is not multiplayer that you could play with others. Overall the game is just about perfect. Full Review »
