Summary: I know nothing about these games and do not play them. I can only review according to my grandson's interest. This seems to be one of his favorites. It is not too easy so it keeps his interest and he tells me when he gets to different levels. It, also, is not too difficult because he is not one to play if it is too challenging. He is 9 years old.
Two boys' review: Awkward gameplay spoils DC debut on DS

Summary: I have two sons, ages 6 and 4, who are die-hard superhero fans. I grabbed this game during a sale, thinking Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash...wow! All these superheroes in one game! Well, all of those superheroes don't really matter when the gameplay is monotonous beat-'em-up. I was hoping for something along the lines of the Fantastic Four title on the Game Boy Advance, where each superhero has distinct skills and abilities.
Summary: This game wasn't to challenging but it wasn't easy either. Some of the time I would play a lvl 3 times this may be because I'm new to the system. The support characters I never used and thought that they were a waste. The 4 characters you could be were cool But it would have been better if you could have been all the characters. The graphics were pretty good for a hand held. The opening movie graphics blew me away.
Summary: I've read the other reviews and it's not as bad as people have been writing. Each JLA superhero (you can choose from Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Batman) is specialized. Each has characteristics unique to the charachters (Superman and Wonder Woman can fly, Flash is fast, etc.). The regular henchman are not unique, but that's true of a lot of video games. The bosses are distinct enough to keep it interesting. The graphics are excellent and the storyline is engaging.
