I went in assuming this game would be disappointing but I wasn't expecting it to be this bad. It almost felt and looked like it was ported directly from the Nintendo DS version.
The combat controls were clunky and slow. While there were "combos" by switching between heavy and light attacks, they almost seemed to hinder your fight more than aid it. The best method to play is just by slamming the X button (360) and read a book. While every character had super power, the game could be won without ever using a single one. And while each character had their own "unique" power, they were all just different ways of doing the same thing (power up, single ranged attack, multi-ranged attack and surrounding area attack).
If it weren't for the Teen rating, I would have assumed this game was targeted toward an elementary school audience. The game was too simplistic to fail. Every mission was so linear, you couldn't have taken a wrong turn if you tried. To top it off, there was no punishment for dying. If one of your teammates are to fall, you just have another tussle their hair to help them back up without losing any momentum.
Above all else, the game didn't seem to have any love. Simple things like enemies climbing through walls, only having 6ish different kinds of bad guys, characters' shadows floating on walls while walking across a bridge, rescuing hostages only to have them disappear into thin-air the second you save them. These things could have all been fixed, but they weren't.
Releasing this game for anything more than a $15 download is an insult. I rented this purely for my love of the DC Comic universe but couldn't see passed the shotty, unpolished excuse of a game. This very well could have been a Marvel's Ultimate Alliance type game, but it fell miles short.
tl;dr This feels like the developers just released this without any real effort or pride. For a game that fans hoped would reboot the cancelled TV show, Legacy was a grave upset.

This game is the equivalent to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.... oh wait they didnt make a #3, cause marvel was smart enough to see a lemon for a lemon. Apparently that hasnt stopped DC from doing to exact same things (with far weaker graphics).
