Gaming doesn’t get much better than breaking the sound barrier through Metropolis’ skies.
The city of metropolis and the world environment looks amazing and will never let you down. The buildings and islands look great from above and the sun flare effects are a treat as well.
The developers at EA finally nailed down what it takes to create a fun Superman game. The only problem is that the game is really late (since it is a movie tie-in and the movie came out nearly six months ago) and the game can get really tedious.
Lasting around 7-10 hours, depending on how many side quests you do, Superman Returns may seem short to some but it is a perfect fit for this game's engine...Easily of the best Superman games to come along in quite some time.
At the end of the day I may have bitched a lot about this game, but I still find myself flying over the streets of Metropolis on a daily basis. The truth is the game is fun, even with all the aforementioned issues I had a great time being a hero for the day.

El juego por lo que veo tiene baja iluminación, se siente muy poco fluido se siente lento como si fuera a 15 frames por segundo, las texturas son muy básicas da la apariencia de un juego de PlayStation 2 en fase beta(sin ofender a esta asombrosa consola).
Tampoco fue traducido ni doblado para el mercado de Hispanoamérica donde hay más hablantes de español pero sí en España donde solo un bajo porcentaje habla el mismo idioma ¿osea?… Full Review »
