3.0 out of 5 stars It's Okay........ January 14, 2007
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay. I know that 99% of the people who reviewed this game hated it. But I don't hate it at all. Let me start with the good things...

1. The whole flying thing is incredible.

2. The city is ten times bigger than New York in Spiderman 2.

3. You can play as Bizarro.

4. Good choices of villains.

The Bad Things...

1. There is no "Superman" Theme (The Movie).

2. Graphics are poor.

3. When you fly around the city, a mission pops up so you barely ever get to explore.

4. This game is barely based off of the movie.

And there you go. That basically sums up the game for you. The game is not bad, but it is far from perfection. I hope EA learns from its mistakes and creates a better Superman game, because I am a huge fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad, just bad November 24, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
It's funny that the most invincible super hero ever created has never translated well to the video game world. Superman Returns seems as if that may change, but alas, this is just another licensed, mindless beat 'em up, and yet another lame Superman game. The game starts off promising enough: you fly around Metropolis, and the city is gigantic. All at once memories of the Spider-Man 2 video game surface because you get the feeling that this could be the type of do anything, anytime gaming that the aforementioned game was based on, but this is not the case. As all kinds of chaos explode in the city, the more the city gets damaged, the more it's own life bar is drained, and once it's drained all the way, it's game over. Now, it's a nice change of pace that Superman himself doesn't have a life bar, but why are his powers (heat vision, super breath, etc.) still have to be so limited and only attained after completing boring, repetitive objectives? The fighting system is boring, and for Metropolis being so big, there's hardly anything really to do. There's a nice list of villains to take on; including Metallo, Bizarro, Mr. Mxyzptlk, and of course, Lex Luthor. After that, it all goes even further downhill. The graphics are blocky and just plain ugly, even for a PS2 game, and the camera really does want to jerk around and work against you. Yeah, Superman Returns is a just plain bad licensed crud fest that had more than enough time to get the kinks worked out (the game was originally slated to be released alongside the movie's premiere in theaters this past summer), but what else would you expect from EA? Thanks again guys.

2.0 out of 5 stars FRUSTRATING AND BORING December 27, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Well I learned my lesson...never, ever buy a video game before reading reviews from magazines and fans. Had I done that I would have saved myself $30 on Superman Returns. Superman's history on video games has been pretty abysmal and this game does nothing to change the poor track record. First of all, despite the title this game has little to do with the film it is named after. Lex Luthor does make an appearance (barely) and Superman will find himself battling villains like Bizarro and Metallo. That is just the beginning of this maddening game experience.

You get to use Superman's powers like flight, superspeed, heat vision, superbreath, and frost breath. Only the heat vision is really useful in battle. Superbreath just blows your enemies backwards with minimal or no damage. There's also several combo attacks that you begin with and gain throughout the game but the best attacks seem to be the simplest ones such as just grabbing a guy and hurling him into a nearby wall or slamming him on the ground.

First I really hate the controls. While it may be fun to soar around the skies above Metropolis the control is clunky. Trying to fight while flying is a royal pain. It starts with zooming around trying to save Metropolis from a meteor storm. You'll still be flying around trying to find the meteors as they crash down on the city, and this is all on the first level! It's also damn near impossible to control Superman when running at superspeed as you go crashing into buildings.

Next your transported to Mongul's Warworld. What this has to do with Superman returns I have no idea other than explaining Superman's five year absence from the Earth.

2.0 out of 5 stars strange............... January 21, 2007
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
how shall i begin, well, let me start with the best thing the game has to offer. Flying through the city will definitely be fun to you...... but what next? the first impression this game gives may give you the idea that, "heck, this game isn't all that bad!" but after you save the city from a meteor shower and defeat mongul in war world, the game gets pretty bad. in fact, this game is all pretty much based on first impressions. you think to yourself, it isn't that boring killing these robots. but an hour or so into the game you'll be saying, "is this all?" And it pretty much is. They sorta break up the monotony with some okay boss battles, but other than that, you'll be constantly battling robots and some others. it really surprises me since they could do so much more for Superman games but the makers seem so sloppy in doingso. i hope the sequel is bput into better hands. i am really convinced that there could be something good in a Superman game since there is so much you could with him. lets pray that next year the curse is lifted.
