This is the thread for discussing the upcoming game "Justice League Heroes". JLH is an action game with RPG elements not dissimilar to X-Men Legends. The available characters are the original league of 7 from the animated series only with Zatanna replacing Hawkgirl.
IGN announced the alternate costumes for the characters a few days ago. While The Flash has both Wally West and Jay Garrick available and E2 Superman is available, we don't get any other Green Lanterns (whic foils my dreams of an Earth 2 teamup. Dammit I want Alan Scott). I'm not going to lie to you, I'm heartbroken about this. On the plus side, we get Adam West Batman.
I never really cared about alternate costumes much, though, to be honest.
I just want to see some Green Arrow in action.
When the game was first announced, I had high hopes, then I saw the character models, and eventually the game in motion, and I must agree.
Now, I do take gameplay over looks, but even in motion, I can sense that the game is destined to fail. The developers should get props for some of the alternate costumes. Jay Garrick? Sure. Though I would'nt quite call that an Adam West Batman. More Neal Adams ish.
It's not Adam West unless the mask has little chalk eyebrows.
The style is just terrible
And the Bat Shark Repellant...
I really don't care how it looks just as long as it plays smooth. I've wanted a decent JLA game for a long time.
The story could be good, I guess they've got one of the JLU writers on it.
But nothing else about it really seems that impressive.
There's always the Lego Batman game, I guess.
My only concern with the Superman game is that it will be like the Spiderman Movie game, the that the first one will pretty much more or less suck, then we have to wait another year the for good one.
It's not a JLU game.
It just seems like a waste to take some of the biggest, best superheroes and basically hamstring them by plopping them down in a game that won't be able to take full advantage of all the cool shit they can do. I'd rather see a Green Lantern game where I could fly around Coast City and perform complex ring tricks with certain rhythmic button presses ala a God of War, or a Flash game with a Punisher or Max Payne style bullet time, where you can rush around and incapacitate people before they can even raise their guns at you. Games like these would probably require a much bigger budget than Legends style games though.
Also, how was the Aquaman game they had for X-Box? I never got around to buying an X-Box, so I couldn't try it out, but I always thought an underwater game could be pretty cool, especially if they played with the ability to move in all directions.
About as good as Superman 64
Obviously, most games would (should) share the same requirements.
Free roaming gameplay. Isn't it funny how the first Spiderman / Hulk (movie) games sucked? Both were linear type games. The sequels, however, were a bit less linear with very large free roaming cities. A new Batman games needs a large Gotham City, or Supes with Metropolis - etc for any other hero with his/her own city.
Exactly..call it The Green Lantern Corps.
You could choose from certain GL's and police the friggin galaxy. The only dnag would be how to use the power ring. Unfortunately we can't hook systems up to our brains yet.

All of them John Stewart.
I'd totally be Mogo.
I would be Leezle Pon.
Just draw what you want the ring to do.
If you're awful at drawing you can just play as Hal.
Or JLU John Stewart.
Anyone can draw circles.
We both know what it would turn out to be.
Nothin' but dongs.
Giant, green, space dongs.
Hard light? More like hard dong.
Im on a dry spell tonight..
The Superman Returns game does sound promising -
I just hope the disasters and such don't end up being like the Spider-Man 2 side missions. If I have to rescue a little girls balloon..Im returning the game.
That's pretty much how I feel about John Stewart. Everytime I see him used I know it's not because he's even remotely interesting compared to other green lanterns, but because he is a token black character that can be trucked out to show diversity.
