Conclusion: 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.
Excerpt: As the title implies, Justice League Heroes: The Flash provides beat-'em-up gameplay that puts you in the shoes of the fastest man alive. To thwart Braniac's latest attempt at world domination, you'll have to run and fight your way through 12 pseudo-3D levels that are packed with killer mechanoids and tricky supervillains.
Pros: Flash's abilities spice up the dodge-and-punch formula, boss battles are challenging and visually intense, colorful 2D graphics and wicked-smooth character animation, comic book cutaways and vocal comments provide ample fan service
Cons: Collision detection isn't always accurate, fighting regular enemies can become tiresome
