I had already written a previous review about this game with the Android experience but it was typically a short one because I was frustrated that I only could not finish the end of Chapter 2 because the game simply hangs when Joker shows up.
I think an update was needed but what the heck, I played this game instead in my wife’s iPhone and I was able to finish the game.
I played Superman first and Wonder Woman next. The downside to this game is that you get stuck until level 30. When you play in hard mode, it will be literally hard to finish off your opponents. You also do not get the chance to maximize all your skill points and attributes because you are limited until that level so choose your options wisely.
Support cards are on hand to help boost your attributes. However, I used most of my money to buy the most expensive costume for the character and having to earn more power pack points to upgrade support cards and buy more costumes meant having to repetitively play the same episodes over and over again.
Do not get me wrong, this linear typed brawler game is fun. It is just that the limitations force you to have to do in-app purchases to buy more power pack points which is frustrating. Now, unless you are patient and have all the time in the world, then feel free to do so.
In my case, I stopped playing after having Superman and Wonder Woman reach level 30. The fact that you have to pay 1,500 power pack points just to be able to play the Flash and Green made me want to stop playing the game.
Don’t get me wrong. This is a fun game. I loved it. But I just could not keep on playing it forever because of some limitations.
Playing this in the new iPhone (5) or the latest iTouch may be better than its predecessors. The shortness of the screen had my character not doing any punches at all. I guess I got used with my Samsung Galaxy S2 that the controls were just right where they are supposed to be but in this case gave me a hard time making sure my right thumb was in the right place.
I would have loved this game except for the fact that when I backed up its saved game data and restored it, it never worked!
This linear centered brawler type of game is one that I had grown accustomed with playing in my PSP. Any DC character is worth playing. The first character I used was Superman and while the version that I played had a Joker hangup problem when you reach the end of Chapter 2, I tried to level up my character in the hopes that once the fix will become available, I can continue playing it at a high level.
Heck, I did not even waste any of my power pack points just so I could buy that Superman Beyond costume when I finish the game. However, Net Marbles, the company that created the game probably configured the game to save its game progress a different way because when the Titanium Backup restore simply never worked.
Once you play the game again after a restore, it was like you really started anew. No power pack points, no skills and character attributes.
You can play as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern or the Flash, each with their own sets of unique active and passive skills. The are 30 support cards comprised of other DC Comics Super Heroes to support the main characters.
Mix, match and upgrade the support card hero abilities to support your main character.
I have to say that I really do not mind the repetitive gameplay in order to level up and earn power pack points. That restore game data issue really ticked me off.
Instead of liking this game, I ended up disappointed. No way am I going to play this one for the 3rd time starting anew.
Justice League Heroes for the PSP is one of my favorite games. It was actually the first role playing adventure game that I finished. You play either of the Justice League’s superheroes Superman, Batman, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman, The Martian Manhunter, Hawkgirl, Huntress, Aquaman. The game features easy medium and hard modes. Not all characters can be played right away. You start off with a few, and as you go deeper with each level, new characters will be unlocked. By blasting enemies you also get to earn experience which you can use to boost up speed, power and/or energy. Superman is funny here though since the flying characters have a height limit in which they can hover around. Still, the overall game is good and I enjoyed it pretty much (at easy mode haha).
You start up your adventure ending up at STARR labs and finding out about Braniac only to find out later on that there is much more to Braniac. You will encounter famous enemy baddies the Queen Bee, The Key, Killer Frost, Gorilla Grodd, the White Martians and Doomsday. This is typically a 1 player game. Even if the level requires you to choose 2 characters, you will have total control on only one of them at a time. The 3D animation is good, I enjoyed the short flicks in between levels. I did not regret having this game.
