If you get bored easy. I give you No more than 25 minutes of playing this game before the boredom kicks in. You fight the same creatures throughout the whole game. It's cool to fly but thats only for the first 24 minutes. Loosely Based on the movie which made me some what happy.Basically, The only reason I even bothered beating this game is cause of My goal of becoming one of the most well known Gamers this world has ever seen.Play Batman Begins if you want a good Superhero movie game.

When I first looked into this game i thought, thats insane, when I played it, i KNEW it was insane
As you pick up the controller the FIRST thing you will do is make superman fly. That is one of the best parts of the game. The amazing sense of speed that you get as superman flys through the 80 square miles of what we call Metropolis at a top speed of 800 miles per hour.
This game is in many was a GTA style game. You go around and you save people when you want to save em. Or you can completely ignore them as you throw cars up in the air and blow them up with your heat vision.
You also get a very unique sense of speed in combat. One move that superman uses shows him spinning around the opponent attacking at every turn.
This is truly a very unique experiance. Superman lovers and non Superman lovers alike will enjoy this gaming experiance IMMENSLY
As a huge fan of anything Superman (I replaced the "S" on my Suzuki with Superman's Shield), I was eagerly anticipating the movie and subsequent game. Although the game was OK, I found it to be a bit disappointing, as the world of Metropolis was very dry and generic. Missing was all the flavor of the world's most vibrant, bustling, and greatest city. Very few things can be directly manipulated during game play, save for vehicles, pedestrians, and a few landmarks like the Daily Planet Globe and some statues. You fight the same enemies over and over, with little variety. There are no difficulty levels, and the default setting allows one to plow through the game with ease once you get used to the controls. The first time through I beat it in a few days of on again, off again game play, the second time I beat it in 4 hours. Perhaps the most redeeming parts of the game are Superman's abilities, which are for the most part rendered effectively. His heat vision and super breath actually work well, and the flight controls are "realistic". I expected him to be able to fly faster though. The other great part of the game is Bizzarro. You get points for destruction, which is always a good time. Unfortunately for the game, since it was based on the movie, the plot isn't all that great. The storyline actually touched upon the movie plot very briefly, while cut scenes carry the rest of the story along. I was hoping for a much better resurrection of the Superman Saga, and I fear that with the mediocre presentation of the movie and the game, investors would be hesitant to continue the franchise. Bottom line: Worth renting, but missing the longevity of other great games that offer an experience you'd gladly want to play a few times through, like GTA or MOH.
