YMMV / Young Justice: Legacy

Go To

  • Enjoy the Story, Skip the Game: While the game has been universally panned, the story does fill some gaps between season 1 and 2. Most fans will recommend others to just watch the cutscenes and read Red Arrow's journals.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: Depressingly, Little Orbit, the company that developed the game, was acutely aware of this trope and talked a big game about averting it. Their ideas were good, but the game was pushed back multiple times, until its release was months after the show's cancellation. The product we got looked shoddy to say the least, with clumsy graphics and clumsier gameplay. As noted above, the story line and the show's actors are right up there with the rest of the franchise, but the game part is uninspired. Considering that the Wii port was canceled and the 3DS port utilized turn-based combat rather than real-time combat like the other versions, not to mention had the DLC characters available from the start rather than being purchasable later, it's... probable that some circle of Development Hell was reached at some point.

  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Only Artemis, Superboy, Aqualad and Nightwing have spotlight in the story. Kid Flash and Miss Martian are barely present and the rest of the team is either absent or has minor cameo. Most frustratingly, Aquagirl remains behind as Mission Control until the climax where she gets kidnapped and then she sacrifices herself. For a game that was mostly about showing the circonstances of her death, you'd think they'd try to develop her even a bit.

How well does it match the trope?
