|Since the foundation of the Justice League in the late '50s, many have joined the ranks of these global do-gooders to combat evil in all forms. Now these Justice League Heroes must save the day again by mobilizing such personalities as Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman, the Green Lantern, Superman, and more against enemies including giant Guerillas, Martians, and assault bots. Take control of each character and their special abilities in solo or multiplayer cooperative action that relies heavily on teamwork. |
In a single-player game you control two characters -- one mandatory and one of your choosing -- and then attempt to complete each level by defeating enemies with a combination of each hero's special power. For example, Green Lantern can lock enemies in a force field, making it easier for a companion to inflict damage with his or her own ability. As you progress through the game, your characters will gain experience points that you can distribute among your group to increase speed, power, and range of attack. A "heroic meter" will rise and fall during combat, depending on your success in landing blows and the damage you sustain. As the meter rises and you continue to pound your foe, your hits will become noticeably more powerful. There are also a number of unlockable characters to play including Green Arrow and Hawkgirl.

I grew up on comics and when I found out they were finally doing a game with DC Comics characters, I had to check it out. The game play is fun, but not to complex to get used to. I like that each character has his own special moves based on his powers. As you collect experience points you can level up character's abilities or purchase new ones and by collecting special tokens throughout the levels, you can access characters like Hawkgirl, Green Arrow, Aquaman, and (for some unexplained reason) 2 other Green Lanterns with the same powers as the Green Lantern you start the game with. You can also unlock different uniforms for the core characters (The Flash, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Superman, and Zatanna) which is kind of cool. If you've ever played any of the Balder's Gate series on Xbox, it's very similar. Since I enjoyed those, I enjoyed these. You do play 2 characters at a time, and the computer player can sometimes be an idiot, but it's fun playing with a friend. There are a few gliches, where your computer player will get stuck, but overall the gameplay is smooth. I wish it had been longer, maybe with side missions to complete. I easily completed this in 3-4 hours while finding all the hidden items. There are like 5 difficulty levels, though, and you'll need to go through the game a few times to unlock all the characters and unis. Also in the beginning, you're stuck with whatever 2 characters are predetermined by the game, but get to choose your teams later. The movie sequences and voice work are well done, the characters have some personality, and there are a few good inside jokes throughout the game. It's definitely one I'll break out now and again, so the replay value is pretty good. As I said, if you're a fan of Balder's Gate style RPGs, this should be a winner for you.
What is there not to like about this classic, released in the latter days of the Xbox but loses nothing in the fun department. Being able to control Superman & Batman on the same screen is worth the price of admission. Overall, a very solid old school style, top-down hack&slash, with a heaping helping of DC Universe thrown in there for good measure. Any fanboy will enjoy an afternoon reliving their favorite Dc comics moments.
As a fan of Marvel Ultimate Alliance and X Men Legends, I was extremely happy to find out that DC comics, with its rich intellectual property, creating its own superhero RPG. Released around the time of XMEN Legends, this game follows a version of the Justice League similar to the TV show. They battle robots, gorillas, and aliens. I won't spoil it for you, but its great. With your favorite characters, you can amplify certain powers based upon playstyle. For me, I amped Green Lantern, Superman and Zatanna until I could defeat most foes with ease. But don't worry, there is still plenty of challenge. While the script isn't as engaging and voice acting isn't as enthralling as other Superhero RPGs, it definitely stands out if you like the characters. Grab a friend and have a great time.
If you love DC characters like I do (so I'm a little biased), then Justice League Heroes should be on your list. Virtually being Superman, Wonderwoman, Batman in addition to any of the traditional Justice Leaguers for is awesome! It's even more fun when you've got a friend with you to partner with. Gameplay is familiar: it's like Gauntlet and almost identical to Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.
But, yes, there are cons: We are all familiar--at least I hope we we're all familiar--with the Justice League and so I would have liked to choose which favorite superhero to play from the start. There's also an option to buy alternate costumes based on the comic books. It's an amusing feature but I wish there was a way to change back in case you don't like the costume upgrade.
Bottom line: if you're expecting new gameplay, Justice League Heroes isn't it. Though I like how another person described this game: DC All-Stars! If you're a DC fan and you can't pass up being Superman or Wonderwoman, I'd definitely recommend.
I really enjoyed this game and always wanted it, so I had to find it and buy it. It's similar to the Marvel Legends games and Marvel Ultimate Alliance style, except that in this one you do have less characters to choose from and you only control 2 at a time instead of 4 alternating characters. The nice thing about only 2 characters is that the camera can be zoomed in closer and you can see everything better. My only piece of advice is that you get points as you're playing the game which lets you cash them in to unlock other characters to play as, and in that respect once you get one Green Lantern character unlocked, avoid unlocking other Green Lanterns until last. Most Green Lantern characters are very unique in the constructs that they create, but this game has two-three different Green Lanterns but their moves are all the exact same. It's a waste of points to have two people who can do the exact same stuff. Otherwise this was a really good game for the XBOX. Worth giving a shot if you can find it.
