Play as DC Comics' The Flash, wielding his speed force to
strike enemies before they can attack. Unlock powerful combination
attacks and slowdown time to defeat adversaries in slow motion.
As the fastest man alive, you can also enlist the support
of fellow Justice League members by calling in special attacks
from Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and other DC Comics super
want to start this review by getting something off my chest.
Why did the game developers release this as Justice
League Heroes: The Flash?
It's released on the same day as the same company (Eidos)
also releases Justice
League Heroes for various other consoles. The
game isn't the same (hence "The Flash" add-on
to the title) so why not call it The Flash: DC Comics Heroes
or some other such name? What has happened is that anyone
wanting to buy "Justice League Heroes: The Flash"
or "The Flash" will get no return on their
search enquiry from most online stores as it's simply listed
as Justice League Heroes.
a GBA offering this isn't half bad. Sure the graphics are
tiny and blocky (but then that's the GBA for you). The game
play is fairly straight forward. You move Flash around the
screen finding villains and beating them up. And, should things
get a little intense, you can perform a number of super moves
to help you clear the screen. The three moves here are super
punch (which sees Flash dive at the enemy and land a hefty
whack); super speed mode (where you can attack your prey as
time is slowed down allowing you to cause damage to your enemy
while they hardly move); and, for when you are really stuck,
you can call upon the help of a member of your fellow Justice
League of America team-mates.
did experience quite a few problems with this game when attacking
enemies. Firstly, wave after wave of the same opponents gets
very dull, very quickly. And secondly, as your character is
so small on the screen, it's very easy to not line up correctly
when preparing to throw a punch - so you end up hitting air.
Also the super speed mode made me feel sick. The screen shakes
making everything look blurry - which is not good if you are
feeling a little delicate.
the plus side this is an interesting game that does have a
comic book feel to it - the characters are colourful and well
detailed for a GBA title and the overall presentation is above
average. But, to
be perfectly honest, there are a few too many negatives to
make this an essential purchase.
