  • Excerpt: Heroes haven’t really had the best of luck in recent console generations in terms of the quality of games spawned using their licenses. From profoundly average titles like Batman Vengeance to absolutely pitiful ones like Superman 64, heroes haven’t received their due. At least that could have been said until this game was released. Yes, it has its problems, but Shadow of Apokolips is a fine game in most regards.

Superman Shadow of Apokolips

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: This is one game we weren't too impressed with at E3, so it's a nice surprise how much we like it now. It's easy to forget that along with the broken promise of great E3 games which turn into puddles of plop by Fall and games that were stinky then and stinky now, are a few games we raised an eyebrow over that surprise us by beating the odds. It may not quite be 'super,' but Shadow of Apokolips deserves heavy props.

Superman Shadow of Apokolips

  • Conclusion: Even the game's tasks are simplified. When you press start, most times the solution to the task is offered. The gameplay results in a lot of button mashing. The "x" button on my controller is permanently damaged because of my experiences with Superman due to the large amount of hand-to-hand combat and lifting and throwing. There are some strength tests that the only objective is to press "x" as rapidly as you can.

  • Excerpt: When I was a kid I often dreamed of being a super hero and I know I was not alone. Especially Superman, the secret identity of Clark Kent, was always among my favourites. The ability to fly, super strength, super hearing, x-ray vision, built-in laser view and invincibility ? what more can you ask for? I always had a problem with the tights though?

  • Excerpt: Fast forward several years later, Infogrames bravely steps into the foray to create an all-new game based upon the Metropolis hero. Superman: The Shadow of Apokolips captures the essence of the animated series, supported by its masterfully executed gameplay engine and various nuances designed to satisfy die-hard comic book fans.

Game Over Online
25 October 2002
  • Excerpt: No doubt taking a queue from last year’s Batman: Vengeance game, which was also based on a animated series of the same name, Superman: Shadow of Apokolips blends stylish action with stirring cut-scenes to create a game that puts you in the shoes of the ultimate superhero as you play through an interactive episode.

  • Excerpt: Infogrames and Atari bring us a new Superman game, and this one goes a long way toward redeeming the steely one's reputation. Superman: Shadow of Apokolips manages to look almost just like the popular cartoon series, and the game itself is not bad. Click here for more.

Superman - Shadow of Apokolips

neXGam
27 January 2013
  • Summary: In letzter Zeit tut sich einiges in der Videospielszene, wenn es um neue Titel rund um die berühmten amerikanischen Superhelden geht. Besonders Activision war in den letzten Wochen nicht untätig und veröffentlichte Spiele rund um Heroen wie Spider-Man, Vampirjäger Blade und bald auch den X-Men. Ebenso war der französische Publisher Infogrames/Atari nicht faul und sicherte sich ebenfalls eine namhafte Lizenz: Superman.
  • Pros: Wunderbare Comicatmosphäre, Gelungener Soundtrack
  • Cons: Träge Steuerung, Happiger Schwierigkeitsgrad
