Here are two new screenshots sent to us for the nwe Justice League Heroes
game. Normally, I'd write this game off as another lame attempt at turning a hit TV show into a game but since it's from the folks at Snowblind Studios, I'm really excited to see how this game turns out. I've lost many hours to Champions of Norrath
and Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance
so you can't blame me for having high hopes for Justice League Heroes
. Here's the press release:

* The product in this article was sent to us by the developer/company for review.
I've been reviewing products since 1997 and started out at Gaming Nexus. After writing for a few different sites that went under, it's nice to bring back a site that's not dependent on revenue and just wants to deliver news and reviews of products.
I'm married, and enjoy first person shooters, sports games, and real time strategy games.
