ooo super hero games eh.... thats kinda of tough cause there really isnt many games where you can fly..... Maybe prototype, or Infamous, even though its not really flying its close enough.

Just Cause 2. I spent hours and hours playing the demo.

Dark Void

As for good games where you can fly? I dunno.

You can glide in Prototype lol. I don't know why I think that is funny

Prototypes the only one I can think of. Buts its more like....prolonged gliding. Same with infamous. Why not get a plane simulator? Haha

About the best part of the first "Iron Man" game IS the flying mechanic, and from that standpoint, once you set the veritcal to actual traditional flight controls, it feels fantastic.

Buut... then you try to actually play the game, and there's a ton of uneven difficulty jumps and dips. I had a ton of fun with the flight mechanics playing the free demo on PSN. That's what I would do if I were looking for some superhero flying. It'll scratch your itch. Just keep in mind that the demo is about the best the game has to offer, and it goes downhill after that.

And DON'T bother with he second "Iron Man" game, which is an even BIGGER mess from top to bottom, withOUT the flight mechanics of the first game...

:shock::o:|:(

There isn't a "vomit" emoticon available, but you get the idea.

Dark Void is probably the best one. Its pretty cheap now too.

Dc Universe Online has Flying power as well Acrobatics where you can glide and Speed run what allows you to jump extremely high....The game is free....

Gravity Rush is all about flying but you would have to be one of the twelve people besides myself who actually owns a Vita.

I was about to say this. Its not flying exactly but I feel its even better than flying. Actually there is also Jak 2 and 3  where they have hovercars, not quite the same either but its a lot of fun driving around dodging other cars in the air and pedestrians on the ground.

In Spider-Man: Web Of Shadows you can't fly exactly, but the web-swingng mechanic gives you great freedom of movement and it's a superhero game like you were looking for.More freedom than Prototype IMO.

Not exactly free roam, but Guacamelee. You can effin goat fly lol. And you are a wrestling superhero lol.

The Amazing Spiderman might be what you are looking for. Arkham Asylum/City. 

Dishonored, you can teleport. I guess it's sorta flying lol.

DC Universe online

It's not super hero by any stretch, but I loved Flower for just aimlessly buzzing around.

Saints Row 4 lets you almost fly with the glyde power depending on your upgrades. It also has helicopters and UFO's that you can pilot. 

#24 Posted by ristactionjakso (5706 posts) -

I can't believe I forgot to mention Far Cry 3. You can hang glide as far as the glider takes you, and towards the end of the game you get a glide suit. Just jump off any mountain top and glide wherever you want.

Saints Row IV, I mean it isn't exactly flying but it's relatively close since you can jump incredibly high and glide forever lol.

Infamous and Prototype give you a glide, but neither lasts that long. Infamous: Festival of blood does give you the ability to turn into bats and fly for a brief period of time.

I don't know about this generations Elder Scrolls, but I know in Morrowind you could levitate and depending on your magic abilities you could fly around the entire map.

Gonna say DC Univers, Batman Arkham City or Lego Batman 2. But old topic is old.

#32 Posted by starwarsjunky (24730 posts) -

gonna put in another vote for saints row 4. amazing game. you have several powers, and you essentially fly from early on.
