"Young Justice Doesn't Do Its Justice"

REVIEW |

Author: Exequiel Roman III  

Young Justice was a show on Cartoon Network that was ridiculously good.  The show is a loose adaptation of the DC Universe with an emphasis on the younger super heroes.  They had a super hero team that originally consisted of super hero sidekicks.  Young Justice: Legacy fills in the gap between the first and second seasons where there is a five year gap in which Robin is now Nightwing.  As a fan of the show and a fan of comics in general, I was very excited when I heard about Young Justice: Legacy.  Nightwing is, in fact, my favorite DC super hero.  Unfortunately Young Justice: Legacy is not my favorite DC video game.  

Young Justice: Legacy (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, WiiU, 3DS, PC)

Young Justice: Legacy is just an ugly game.  I look at the graphics and there is nothing there that really makes you think, “Oh, that’s pretty cool.”  The backgrounds are generic and the characters look clunky.  When our heroes hit the villains, there isn’t anything that shows the force.  There are games like the Batman: Arkham series where you hit a villain and you can see raw power.  When I saw Nightwing hit the villains it was like his bastons were really pool noodles.  I know we’re now in the age of the PS4 and Xbox One, but I would have expected this level of graphics on a PS2 scale.

If any of the heroes are going to have wise cracks, they desperately need more than three lines.  By the end of the first mission, I never used Kid Flash ever again simply because he repeatedly said something like, “I’m faster than a speeding bullet, or does that violate the big guy’s trademark?” It was too much.  The only good thing about it was the volume of their voices weren’t very loud.  It makes me wonder why they added it in the first place if they were going to turn the voices down so much anyway.  I would have been fine with the wise cracks, because that’s kind of expected when we’re playing this kind of comic book game geared towards younger players.  I just think that the voices need to be turned up and the characters given a larger variety of the wise cracks.  The music just doesn’t do it for me.  I would have enjoyed the music, but throughout most of the levels we’re forced to listen to some unnecessary electric guitars.  It’s almost as if they want it to be edgy and feel like adding an electric guitar is the way to go.  The voice acting is superb as all the voice actors that voiced the show reprise their roles in the game.  

Young Justice: Legacy (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, WiiU, 3DS, PC)

Young Justice: Legacy is really just a Beat ‘Em Up game with RPG elements.  I level up, but don’t really see too much of a change.  Each character is extremely similar to the next.  The only difference is some characters are better at pulling off their melee combos like Nightwing and Superboy, and others are better at pulling off their powers like Miss Martian.  The combos and powers themselves are essentially the same.  They have a ranged attack, a power attack, and an AoE attack, it’s just the animations that are really different.  I think it may be Dynasty Warriors that turned me off on games like this where essentially you pay for a game and all you do is hit the same button over and over again with an occasional random button to change the style of attack.

I would recommend that Young Justice: Legacy should be skipped.  It might be interesting for a rental, but after playing it, I don’t really want to play it again.  Other than the voice acting, the story is something that really stands out in this game.  The story is something you would definitely see in the show or perhaps a Young Justice movie.

GameDynamo's Score for Young Justice: Legacy (X360)
Graphics
The characters still look like their characters in the show, but it looks so unpolished.
Sound
The music and repetitive wise cracks get annoying, but the voice acting is spot on, since it's the same voice actors from the show.
Gameplay
You won't be happy hitting the same button over and over and over.
Play Value
The game might not be the greatest, but the story is interesting at least.
 
Final Score  54  
Most of the aspects of this game are disappointing, but then there are sparks of brilliance.

He has been gaming since before he could spell video or games... or even his own name. While he can find a game he enjoys in any genre, he cites Tetris being his all-time favorite game. Oh yeah... he writes stuff too.
