    Beat up bad guys with your ol’ buddy Superman, and literally launch them into orbit. Sounds pretty fun, right?

    Overall, Man of Steel is a solid game.

    A solid but a bit tedious 3D brawler with lots of one-vs-one fights to care about.

    Man of Steel reduces one of our most iconic superheroes to just another iOS brawler, and not even a particularly good one. It has some impressive flash and crackling sound design, but shows all of its tricks too early and subsequently grows redundant.

    In the end, shoehorning Superman into the now-hackneyed ‘Infinity Blade’ template just doesn’t work for me. With the film in theaters after a long layoff, and the fact that this has to be one of the biggest IPs in entertainment, I expected something little more original.

    Man of Steel ($2.99, iPhone / $4.99, iPad) is too simple to recommend, but it still provides some mindless fun making it worth considering depending on how much you like brawler games and Superman.

    A functional but distinctly average gesture-based brawler, Man of Steel won't have the longevity of the character upon which its based.

    Look! Up there on the App Store! Is it a faithful movie tie-in? Is it a decent Infinity Blade rip-off? No, it's the rather mediocre Man of Steel.

    Man of Steel offers decent Infinity Blade-style fighting, but not even Superman can save its shallow depth, pathetic plot, lazy repetition, and unoriginal gameplay from certain destruction.
