Superman Returns may be too short of a game and repetitive,but I really enjoyed playing this decent Superman adventure.The gameplay is really fun and ea games is the first group to get the flying mechanics,speed,strength,
powers and the true feeling of being the man of steel down pat!Gamespot gave it an overall rating of 4.4 out of 10,but I think it should'nt be no less than a 6 out of 10.Spiderman 2 was a pretty short game and it was repetitive too,but Gamespot gave it a 7.2 out of 10.Go figure?Don't get me wrong,I really enjoyed playing Spiderman 2,but I had more fun playing Superman Returns.I absolutely love this game.My biggest beef with this game is it was way too short.It seems ea games rushed this one out too soon,when they should of held on to it longer and should of added more diverse action packed chapters.It only took me a little over eight and a half hours to finish this game and that includes doing the side missions of being Bizzaro and racing Mr.Mxyplyxz around Metropolis,plus just flying around all over the place!Hopefully the sequel to this game will be a lot longer and more variety to the objectives to complete,just as I'm hopeing in the next Spiderman game(Spiderman 3) which comes out this May.For now though I'm enjoying playing Superman Returns!These free roam superhero games are awesome and with the things ea games did with this game,there is a bright and limitless future for great future Superman games to come!!!
The game play is fun, fast paced, and action packed, but certainly repetitive. Finding the collectables(lost kittens) helps to extend your play through. The Bizarro mini game is a lot of fun and acheiving the eight trophies is a good challenge. The story missions and objectives are repetitive, but they are fun to complete. Metropolis is absolutely huge and is the biggest city ever in an open world action game. However the city is pretty lifeless overall, as there is not enough to do in such a huge city like this. A lot more mini games would have helped and more collectables would have been better. There should have been a lot more enemies in this game, as the enemies are very repetitive. More boosses like Brainiac, Dark Seid, and Doomsday would have made the game much better. How ever the bosses that are in the game are great and very fun to battle with, especially Metallo, Bizarro, and Mongul. Superman Returns should be a lot longer. If EA games added in a lot more enemies, more bosses, a lot more mini games and collectables it would have made this game much longer and a lot better over all. Hopefully the next Superman game will be a lot longer and a good game. The flying speed and running speed is very great. Breaking the sound barrier is really cool. This game truly captures the feeling of being Superman!
The graphics are just decent over all. If the buildings were more detailed and looked much better I would have rated the graphics good. Superman and his enemies look good, but everything else looks bland.
The combat is great and the super combat moves are amazing. The thousand fists combat move is my favourite to pull off on your enemies. Superman's powers are superb, especially his heat vision and his freeze breath.
The sound design is very good over all. The music is good, the voice acting is good, and the sound effects are great.
The controlls are very good. It is easy to controll Superman and its a blast to do so, especially when flying and running at super speed.
The replay value is decent, but not good over all. I love being Superman. If there was much more to do in the city it would have made the replay value much better.
The boss fights are great. I love fighting the DC Comics super villains in this game. The created super villains/bosses are great to fight too.
The story in this game is not good and is just mediocre over all. The presentaion is great though. The cut scenes look great.
