Do you enjoy punching robots and putting out fires in a bland jaggy cityscape that looks like a hotel on a cliff?

Summary: Then you'll love Superman Returns. To be fair the developers did a great job w/ the flying effects, unfortunately taking off and landing are as cumbersome as some PC flight sims. EA created an "open city" in the style of GTA, only they forgot to add any style and personality to it. What results is a sandbox without any toys to play with. You've got super powers, but the game forces you to repeat tasks like shooting meteors down and blowing out fires ad nauseam.

Summary: I'm not sure if I've already reviewed this game but if you're looking for the best Superman game available, this is it. Although this version of the game does not include Custom soundtracks, I'm sure you'll get over it and look at how well EA has done this game. However there are some flaws...for one the enemies become too much to handle, especially the DNAliens and the robots. The second thing...this game makes me dizzy at times.
It's not as bad as the reviews would lead you to believe

Summary: It's a decent game but rather repetitive. The flying is enjoyable but could be faster. A lot of the tasks are rather simplistic such as killing some aliens. Not too many of the missions are challenging. The 3 blimps being attacked by the dragons was hard until you figure it out then its pretty easy. No way would it have been worth $59 but for the price I paid at amazon ($9.99 at the time) it was definitely worth it.
Summary: This game is no where near as bad as it's reputation makes you believe. It is true that there is some repetitive things in the game, but there is also a variety as well. Putting out fires and saving Metropolis from a major tornado are just some of the things that this game lets you do. It also has some of the coolest Superman characters from the comics, such as Bizarro and Metallo.
Summary: This game has it's moments but as all the other reviewers said about fighting robot after robot after robot is true. Sometimes they throw a few flying creatures in the mix as well as some on the ground but it's the same thing over and over. I feel sorry for those that spent the $50 or more for this game when it came out because it's definately not worth it.
Summary: No cheat code and trick at the begging level. Not a easy play game. You must pass the second level in order to use cheat code. But it's hard to pass the second level. I haven't get once successed yet.
Summary: I am disappointed in Amazon. It has been a month and i still haven't received the game yet. It usually doesn't take this long for a shipment to come through. Can i please get my game or my money back. I bought the game for a coworkers kid for pulling up his grades in school and he still hasn't had the chance to play it.
Summary: This game is nothing but flying around and finding robots and killing robots for the WHOLE GAME! play the game for 5 minutes and thats it nothing new, its cool to fly with superman, but after a while its the same game. And has the worst final monster i haver ever seen, im not going to say waht it is to not ruin the suprise, but this game Suxs.
Summary: Here's a rule of thumb for gamers. Superman games are always bad. Superman 64 is constantly cited as being one of the worst games of all time. When Superman Returns came out, the first thing that came to mind was that it could not be nearly as bad as Superman 64. The good news? The game really isn't as bad as Superman 64. The bad news? The game is still bad. Not for all the same reasons, but its still bad.
