Excerpt: Justice League Heroes ... Gauntlet in the DC universe. Need I say more. Both the in-game action and cinematics of Heroes puts the JLA in a light the likes of which you have never seen before. While in the middle of the action, the heroes themselves come off very nicely and though you don't get a whole lot of detail from the very removed camera angle, the iconic suits and color schemes are all you really need.
Excerpt: A few years ago, Marvel’s X-Men team made a name for itself in RPGs with the release of X-Men Legends . With the success of X-Men Legends , it was only a matter of time before the most popular comic book team in the DC Universe, The Justice League, made their appearance in RPG form. This came with the release of Justice League Heroes in October 2006. In the beginning of Justice League Heroes , a meteor comes crashing down to the Earth's surface.
Excerpt: I honestly don't know why, but it seems impossible to make a decent game based on a character from DC Comics. Honestly, even Marvel super heroes manage to appear in decent games every now and then, the most recent being the rather fun Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, a natural evolution of the X-Men Legends games. Meanwhile, the most recent DC Comics game, Superman Returns, is anything but super.
Conclusion: move through a number of diverse, and well-designed, environments including the streets of Metropolis, the planet Mars, and a giant beehive. In each of these environments there are unique objects for your heroes to interact with, and to use against their enemies as weapons. Human strength characters like Batman and the Flash can pick up boxes, desks, and parking meters to bash over their enemies heads.
Conclusion: Justice League: Heroes is a competent beat ‘em up with a bit of a brain and some destructive flair. Apart from the X-Men game for Megadrive it’s the best comic book beat ‘em up I’ve played and it does go a long way to making you feel like you’re playing as a Superhero. Unfortunately the gameplay is rather restricted compared to something like Spider-Man and doesn’t vary all that much - without a friend to run the game through with you could find yourself getting bored...
Pros: Feels like a Superhero game, Great interactive environment, Tidy graphics, Fun super attacks, Co-op mode
Cons: Gameplay gets a little stale, especially on your own, Penalises you for playing as lesser-known characters, Batman is pants
Summary: Es wird wohl wie so häufig bei Spielen mit Lizenzen bekannter Superhelden: So richtig Spaß dürften wahrscheinlich nur echte Comic-Freaks an dem Titel haben, wenn er im November erscheint. Die simplen Kloppereien mit den Robotern machen aufgrund der interaktiven Umgebung anfangs Laune, doch nach einiger Zeit droht Langeweile. Dass sich technisch noch viel an dem nach jetzigem Stand durchschnittlich präsentierten Spiel tut, bezweifle ich jedenfalls.
