  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    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."
  5. It's not as solid as X-Men Legends or Marvel Ultimate Alliance, but if you are a DC fan, you'll dig it.
  6. On the plus side, this is the first game that successfully makes Superman a fun character to play.
  7. Those looking for a new super hero action RPG experience might look at Marvel Ultimate Alliance to get more bang for their buck.

    Justice here isn't always pretty. But it gets the job done. Barely. [Dec. 2006, p.68]
  9. Snowblind has pulled off a fairly successful translation of the comic books that we know and love, but the action gets stale pretty quickly.
  10. Official Xbox Magazine UK
    Button bashing by the numbers and very repetitive. Only superhero fanboys need apply to this Justice League. [Jan 2007, p.125]
  11. 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.
  12. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    We can't pretend that Justice League is anything but a mindless beat-em-up. [Dec. 2006, p.138]
  13. Games Master UK
    Not-bad superhero scraps; play it with a friend for best results. [Christmas 2006, p.100]
  14. Official Xbox Magazine
    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]
  15. 70
    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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
