Boasting some of the most jaw-dropping Justice League sequences ever, a dreamlike create-your-own-superhero motif, and strong characterization & MMO design, but outdated-feeling graphics, combat, and direction. 6.7/10.

Most Memorable Moment(s): 1. Opening Legion of Doom Sequence, 2. Create-your-own-superhero, 3. Brainiac Cutscene
Pros: Absolutely JAW-DROPPING opening Justice League/Legion of Doom sequence – literally brought a tear to my eye as a DC fan how unbelievably epic it was and remains one of the Top 3 greatest scenes I’ve ever seen in a superhero movie/show/game, extremely innovative create and design your own superhero idea – brings a guaranteed smile to any superhero fan’s face as it gives them a taste of what it was like when the geniuses at DC created superheroes for the first time in the original Justice League members, great customizability in look and powers for the hero,
Cons: textures and graphics could have been much better to match the brilliance of the game design, many bugs, needs better direction – game just feels outdated from combat to gameplay
Overall Rating: 7.2/10
