While the number of new games on the GBA is diminishing quickly, Justice League Heroes: The Flash is a great addition to the GBA library. While it doesn’t have the graphics of the DS or PSP, it has a lot of fun gameplay in its favor. You also have the fact that it’s a little less expensive than DS or PSP games and that you can play it on your Nintendo DS. While some of the other super hero games have fallen far short, you might be surprised by what The Flash has to offer.
This isn't the first time The Flash has headlined a game ¿ an obscure 1992 release on the original Game Boy claimed that distinction ¿ but this is the first time the spirit of being The Flash has truly been captured. Taking control of a superspeedster and literally running circles around enemies is a ton of fun, and players will be left with a sense of what it might be like to really wear the crimson tights. Final Fight wasn't fleet of foot, and Double Dragon didn't dash ¿ this beat-'em-up leaves 'em in the dust, thanks to superspeeding Flash.
As you play through you can unlock four cool bonus features - the comic book cinematic chapters, a 'Making of' feature and two neat mini-games, one of which adds a nifty coda to the adventure. You can also use the game cart to unlock content in Justice League Heroes for the Nintendo DS, a great addition that enhances its somewhat disappointing conversion. The feature is pretty amazing to see on a GBA cart as it does a good two-minute job of spelling out the process of how games are made. I certainly got a chuckle when I saw a design document and, later, screens with all the sprites and some game code. It's a great addition that might get more kids who get this game interested in creating them. Heck, it sure beats those awful 'you can make video games' commercials that run on G4 all day and night. If you're a fan of the series who's interested in the console versions, then adding Justice League Heroes: The Flash to your play list isn't a bad idea at all.
Justice League Heroes: The Flash proves it is possible to create a fun game that is centered on a B-list comic book superhero. You wouldn't think that running fast and busting heads could be made compelling, but the nifty abilities that The Flash has in this game, coupled with the challenging boss fights and top-flight presentation, make the scarlet speedster's foray on the GBA an interesting and enjoyable experience. Beat-'em-up games rarely have staying power beyond the initial breaking-in period, but this is one of the likeable games that you'll want to come back to again and again.
All too often developers miss the whole point of licensed products and fail to fully immerse the player in the world of their favorite comic book/TV/Movie heroes. It's for that reason alone that The Flash is worth a look and WayForward have done an admirable job of fitting enough of 'The Fastest Man on Earth's abilities to satisfy even the most hardened of critics. The main reason for this is the fact that you do feel you have a genuine super power and punching one thug only to dash to the other corner of the screen and punch another, in a matter of seconds, is very satisfying indeed. Comic book fans and anyone interested in a decent brawler should seek this out now.
In the end, Justice League Heroes The Flash is a decent arcade action game that really delivers the goods to Game Boy Advance players. It's a shame that the DS version isn't half as good as Flash's solo adventure. If you own a Game Boy Advance and think The Flash is one of the coolest Justice League members ever then you owe it to yourself to pick this game up.
Flash ressemble à tant d'autres beat'em all sortis sur GBA et se fond parfaitement dans la masse, ultra répétitif, très pauvre dans son gameplay, il pourra à la rigueur vous divertir une poignée d'heures mais ne lui en demandez vraiment pas plus, et encore, si vous êtes du genre bon public.
Going very fast is that Flash’s whole point, and luckily his standout game gets the idea right. The combat is designed around that premise and works well. Beneath the flashy exterior, however, this game is a typical beat-em-up, for better or worse.
Let me reiterate, this is not a review, it’s a warning. This game is not worth buying, especially not for someone you love. And if you’re a fan of The Justice League or The Flash, I emphasize that you should not buy this game, as it may taint how you feel about both of them.
