    Young Justice: Legacy proves once again that making a game just for the sake of taping into the appetite for another product, in this case, the cartoon, is a bad idea. Freedom Factory neglected the game all around and only the most enthusiastic fans of the cancelled TV series will enjoy it to some extent.

    And then there are the visuals. Oh, my sweet Jim Lee...the pixilated graphics are previous-gen at best, and I would’ve thought I was playing this on the first Xbox or the PlayStation 2 if I didn’t know better.

    Young Justice: Legacy exists as a video game accompaniment to the TV series, and in this regard it’s a repetitive, unsatisfying, and unimpressive failure. There are better scrolling beat-em up’s out there, and there’s more than enough Superhero media around to help you avoid playing this.

Surprisingly, far more than expected in terms of quality and platability. Very good story, complete experience. It's a kind of Marvel Alliance but for any reason (and positive) it feels more authentic and real, for me as a hardcore player and my two sons.
    Why I'd recommend this game?
    Is one of the best superheroes game ever, action, rpg, very good graphics, complex adventure, interesting and deep story... a must have for DC fans, a must have for super-hero games and must have for TV show fans.
    I'm a confessed fan of at least two out of three previous points and we're really enjoying this game!

The story is sub-par, the graphics are okay, and the animations are blocky. But let's talk about the important stuff. The gameplay. How is it? It's not terrible, not it's not okay or positive at all. It feels like a third person view of marvel heroes with bare bones gameplay. If I could compare this to another superhero game, I would compare it to Deadpool. Both are budget games hoping to make quick cash. However at least Deadpool's animations were fluid and had good writing.

    Do I recommend this game? Not for buying, and probably not for renting. This game is for those with literally nothing to play on their current-gen console. Speaking of which, another problem is bought up. Release date. This game was released on the 19th of November 2013, which automatically makes two risks that ended up failing. The next-gen consoles are already out, and there is no sign of this game on the PS4 or Xbox One (plus there's next to no reason to play a current-gen console just for this game) and this game was released way after Young Justice ended. I actually feel somewhat insulted of how this game has been in development for a while, and hyped by several DC fans/

    Is it the greatest game ever? No. Is there plenty to enjoy? Yes. Even if you weren't a fan of the show there is action/rpg style gameplayIs it the greatest game ever? No. Is there plenty to enjoy? Yes. Even if you weren't a fan of the show there is action/rpg style gameplay that should attract many.

    Using super powers, flying, punching and kicking bad guys, your general fun. The buttons are laid out in a simple and easy to use way. The powers are simple to use and upgrading them is easy. It was a very easy game to pick up and play with out doing tutorials or reading a manual. And the way the missions are set up you can play one, set the controller down and say, get ready for work, quite simple. No need for "Oh, come on, I can't skip this 10 minute cutscene?" Either. You can skip, even if it is the first time seeing them.(Unlike many games which make you watch them) this is a huge plus for me.

    The graphics... Great, for PS2 or first year of PS3 release. But graphics do not a game make. Half Life 1 is still an amazing game even with its graphics while say, the new Call of Duty, while great graphics, is still a bland Call of Duty game. But if you get hung up on graphics, then skip this game.

    If you never watched the show and just jumped in, probably be very lost. If you watched the show, then this game is a great addition to your YJ experience.

    Why I give it an 8/10. I am not hung up on graphics like many of the bad reviews seem to be. A good game is a good game.

    The side stuff like trivia is also a nice change of pace. It offers small stuff like that, and costumes, art, Red Arrow Journals, to add to the YJ World for any fan.

    If you can get it cheap, like I did(PS+ Account with sale got it for 9$) then get it. By this time you should be able to get it under 20$ and it would be worth it.

    Never got the DLC but if I had the time and energy and need, I might check it out.
