    Saw an ad on TV for the game (360 version) and it looked...bad.

    I'll download but I too am expecting very little from this. My daughter may get more out of it than I! :)

    Hey MRU...I miss the Soviet theme... :(

    So I just played it

    Flying is fun with the superspeed the combat is a bit lackluster. the controls are just meh. i ended picking up people and slamming them into an ambulance rather than gently setting them there. Its a shame because i thought the movie was fantastic

    I have high hopes for this. Just the whole fighting absurdly huge enemies sorta appealed to me (had a dream where I was in some big city block once with a monster stuck around it. had to get out. thought it would make for a fun boss in a game). But then again aren't EA making it?

    Has there ever been a good superman game ? I cant think of one. The best I remember was the one on the Atari VCS and even that wasn't good... :eek:

    I downloaded today.. eek it is bad. Camera and lock on, turning and basic control is very ropey. That has to be the blandest city I've ever seen...

    I had some fun flying around the city and blowing cars off the road, but the fighting is pretty boring. I also had fun flying as high as I could and freefalling... for about 2 minutes (of fun, not freefalling). Picking up tugboats and throwing them is amusing.

    Here's the game I wanted to play...

    Bizarro Superman, destructible buildings with realistic collapse physics, killable people, every single thing is throwable, whacking Aquaman with a blue whale...

    I guess that wouldn't be a Superman Returns game, though.;)

    Thinking more about it, it's really frigging annoying that a 'next gen' game developer would be content with this: Superman hits the side of a building as hard as he can, and the skin of the building changes to show 2-d damage, but only if you hit the exact right spot...otherwise it does nothing. That's lame.
