Up and Atom! How Comic Book Videogames Need to Change - AusGamers

AusGamers has written a lengthy feature on how it is so many comic book-based videogames fail, and how this type of failure can be averted in future endeavours.

From the feature:

"If you think about comics and games, they seem like they belong to one another: super powers, super-villains, fantastical worlds, alien races, demonic dimensions, gadgets, droves of henchman, robots and... well, the list goes on and on, and yet outside of the Batman: Arkham series, there really hasn't been a videogame that marries the two pop-culture mediums together on a level they deserve. So I took it upon myself to explore why, and offer solutions to basic design pitfalls that have stopped this obvious recipe for awesome from being as bankable today as comics and the silver screen are..."
