What's it about?
In DC LEGENDS, players collect heroes from the DC Universe to fight off invaders from another dimension. The focus is on the action, where choosing the right heroes can make all the difference, depending on your opponent's vulnerability. Battles are simple affairs. Players tap to attack and either deal damage or take damage until they win. Players who want to focus just on team building can hit the "fast-forward" and "auto" buttons to let the game play itself. After progressing to level 10, players can battle against other live players in a player vs. player arena.
Is it any good?
Strategy games are inherently deep, but sometimes can be overly complicated; this game is never sure if it wants to be a basic brawler or a deep strategic title. Ultimately, that indecisiveness hurts both sides of DC Legends. That said, the battles are fun -- especially when it comes to figuring out who best to match against opponents. And the strategy in where to invest your upgrade points makes you think before just acting on instinct. It's other upgrades and areas where it gets a bit overwhelming. There's almost too much going on in the game. The violence might be a bit much for very young kids, but it's nothing compared to what you'll find in other titles. If you're a super fan of the DC Universe -- and you can either embrace or ignore the complicated interface -- this could be a fun bit of escapist action.
