SUPERMAN...please let it be Superman

A good Superman game would be extremely difficult to make. However, the same could have been said for a Batman game 5 years ago...

If it is a DC game, I seriously hope that they use the mould of the Arkhamverse to shape it. I can imagine that the freeflow combat would work brilliantly for a Superman game.

The last superman movie tie-in, though wasn't really successful, looked pretty good. The flying mechanics were very well done, and I'm sure it will be great using the tech we have now. All they have to do is work on the game mechanics, enemies and a good story. But it definitely has a lot of potential.

@ cyborg47

Actually, after reading your comment, I'm fairly convinced. While the gliding sections of Arkham City weren't exactly "flying", a lot of the same mechanics could be used, such as the "drop attacks" that Batman could perform.

As a Batman fan, I'd still prefer another Arkham game (maybe where part of the game sees you returning to the abandoned Asylum to hunt for a villain in the ruins). But pretty much any DC hero game would be great!

I would love a superman game if done correctly. The only problem I have is that it's almost impossible to make SM into a game. The world would have to be GTA size and scale at least. The thugs need to be realistic, and not like spider-man type of fighting. Think about how GTA works when you break the law and the police come down on you then the FBI then the military. Superman would be the last one to end it all, we need AI that is ready for superman and his powers. Not just robots and aliens, I would like a world that I have to choose between saving the women being attacked or the kids in a burning building on different end of the city.

The detail needed has to be with how well superman is able to protect the city and it's people. Flying someone to the hospital when they just got in a car wreck should be the hard choice that while you are en-route you see a hostage scene taking place and decide which is more important.

Imagine a Dam breaking and having to devert the water or stop it with ice breath before it wipes out a small camping grounds filed with people. Or having to fly and detect a lost child in the woods. It would need seasons and weather that can affect your powers. At night it's easier for your energy to be drained and not heal as quickly.

Maybe Lex covers the sun with a Red film that lowers your powers like in the cartoons. How about someone like the flash challenging you to a foot race? Or wonder women to a test of strength? It would be a more living world not just about stopping robots every few mins.

Sadly a good superman game is rare and some of them are huge flops or evil to some gamers so it would be good to see something new and good for superman.

Also if its not up to them an Aquaman game that could make him cool and so people will hate him less.

A Lobo game would peak my interest.

It might be DC Universe Online 2 as well.

It's going to be the Justice League people.

I hope that's it's not Arkham 3. Rocksteady has been doing so well with the Arkham series so far.

I'm not saying that this is what I want(because I don't) but I heard of the success that the green arrow show has had, so maybe him.

I also heard that Deathstroke is in it. Considering that he is one of my faves I guess I should give the show a chance.

I just wonder if they mean DEATHSTROKE, or some guy named Slade Wilson like in Smallville. Boy was that a kick in the teeth.
