  1. The environments are beautiful and highly detailed, also are the destructible elements like the vehicles, trees and newspaper stands.
  2. One of the better games based on a licensed property that I've played this year on the Xbox and while I wish there were more characters and some kind of sand box battle mode, I really can't complain about what the game does offer because there's a lot of game to be played even after going through it multiple times on several different difficulty levels.
  3. An excellent beginning to what could be an incredible franchise.
  4. While not perfect, Justice League Heroes is easily the best game to come out featuring DC heroes in a very long time.

    With a great cast of characters, tons of unlockables, and a solid single-player campaign JLH is worth picking up for fans of the comics. Casual gamers looking for more bang for their buck may want to wait to get their hands on "Marvel Ultimate Alliance."

    Heroes is a relatively simple game that, at times, feels like X-Men Legends with DC character models. Still, the chance to take control of some of the most beloved superheroes on the planet is one that you just can't pass up.
  7. At last, a game that features Superman and Batman that isn't awful.
  8. It's a familiar formula, but Justice League Heroes offers something interesting by blending dungeon-crawling convention with comic book heroics.
  9. The most disappointing aspect of JLH is simply being forced to play as heroes you might not necessarily want to play as. I don't see any reason why the levels couldn't have been designed a little more creatively to allow for any combination of heroes.
  10. Justice League Heroes breaks the mold when it dealing with DC's past history of below average DC games. There are a few problems in the A.I., and repetitive gameplay, but in the end there is a lot of fun to be had.
  11. It's not as solid as X-Men Legends or Marvel Ultimate Alliance, but if you are a DC fan, you'll dig it.
  12. On the plus side, this is the first game that successfully makes Superman a fun character to play.
  13. Those looking for a new super hero action RPG experience might look at Marvel Ultimate Alliance to get more bang for their buck.
  14. Neither particularly clever nor particularly beautiful. Instead it's relentlessly videogamey - distilling most of the clich├ęs that onlookers might hold about both comics and videogames.
  15. Justice here isn't always pretty. But it gets the job done. Barely. [Dec. 2006, p.68]

    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.
  17. 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.
  18. Snowblind has pulled off a fairly successful translation of the comic books that we know and love, but the action gets stale pretty quickly.
  19. Button bashing by the numbers and very repetitive. Only superhero fanboys need apply to this Justice League. [Jan 2007, p.125]
  20. 65
    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.
  21. 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.
  22. We can't pretend that Justice League is anything but a mindless beat-em-up. [Dec. 2006, p.138]
  23. Not-bad superhero scraps; play it with a friend for best results. [Christmas 2006, p.100]
  24. If you're looking for groundbreaking gameplay and a thrilling story, then you'll be disappointed. Justice League Heroes is a pretty standard action-RPG that's neither offensive nor alluring.
  25. But with a story that engages only with a last-minute twist and so many flunkies to fight over 12-or-so hours, JLH feels beneath its godlike protagonists. [Holiday 2006, p.83]
  26. 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.
  27. 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.
  28. The game's presentation is on par with the comic book series, but the characters aren't well balanced. Furthermore, only certain skills can be upgraded, and the rest of the game contains the same old beat-em-up formula that's been around for ages.
  29. 50
    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."
  30. 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.
