  • Summary: True to the fiction in every respect, this is the game based on the Superman universe that fans have been anticipating for decades. From excited citizens to the traffic on the streets, every detail of this vibrant city has a mind of its own. These 80 square miles are brought to life for the first time in a videogame. Go anywhere and do anything in Metropolis as Superman. Non-linear gameplay allows you to explore and play the game exactly how you want to at your own pace. Where and how you fly - to the top of skyscrapers, dodging elevated trains - is completely up to you, since gameplay is designed as a true open world experience. With notorious villains like Metallo and colossal challenges only Superman can overcome, you must navigate the Man of Steel to monitor and protect Metropolis from destruction. Three distinct types of gameplay -- Flying, Rescue, and Combat -- will keep the action constant and the challenges relentless. Play both film-inspired missions as well as original content created exclusively for the videogame. Graphics, sound, and gameplay have been taken to the next level to create a Metropolis like you've never seen it, with three dimensional sound, a complete orchestra soundtrack, and Oscar-wining sound designer.

    Superman Returns was one of the few Superman games that I thought looked like it would be somewhat decent. That was exactly what it was; somewhat decent. A few positive features about it was that you free roam, but as Superman! This means you can fly, run, and have all his superpowers. The fighting combos were cool, but barely responsive. Now, it is time for the negative. The enemies, levels, and city were all repetitive and bland. The only time you can free roam is before a chapter because Metropolis is always needing you within a chapter and you can not escape them. At least the game did not try to copy the movie because that was even worse! The ending is extremely easy and very anticlimactic. If you are, understandably, getting bored of the monotonous gameplay, you have another option. You can rescue 100 kittens across Metropolis that disappear at a certain distance, or you can play as Bizarro for 2 minutes. That is about it as far as sidequests. Basically, the game is somewhat fun to play as Superman going Mach 4 in the air across Metropolis, but bland and repetitive gameplay Expand
