This game had some promise and after playing the demo I tried it out. If you liked playing the demo I really hope you liked fighting the robots because you will fight them ALOT! The enemies are really monotonous and boring. You don't really even to fight anyone cool except Bizaro. In short the game is very repetitive. most of the achievements are not to hard so it might be worth the rent if you want to up the old gamerscore.

If you enjoy beating up robots the exact same way for a few hours without wanting to jab your eyes out with an ice pick, then Superman is the game for you. Sure, it's fun to fly around the HUGE city, and some of Superman's powers are neat to mess around with, but ultimately the game succumbs to the Superman video game curse.
Well, I have played some bad games but this one is really bad. I almost put the game back in the sleeve and sent it back after the first part with the meteors but after I finally found a controller configuration I could work with I was able to play the game without having to go downstairs and around the complex, across the railroad tracks to fetch my controller that I threw out the window in a fit of anger. This game is boring and the city, while it is very big, looks the same. One block looks the same as the last. The controls are bad, it was very frustrating trying to fight someone that didn't fly because Superman wanted to fly after every move you did and while airborne it was very hard to attack them. So while trying to land you would fly a half block away and in the meantime the enemy would be destroying the city. The mini games are awful and it took some commitment to beat the game. After I beat it I wasted no time sending it back. I would strongly recommend passing up on this one.
