The ten worst superhero games of all time

Digitally Downloaded writes: "There was a time when superheroes and comic book games were the stuff of legend for how amazingly, spectacularly, incredibly bad they were. I remember buying many a game with my favorite heroes plastered on the front only to be met with the bitter disappointment of how awfully terrible they all were." (Batman: Dark Tomorrow, Culture, Iron Man 2, Superman 64, Superman: The Man of Steel, The Incredible Hulk)

i know everyone is going to disagree, but batman arkham city. asylum was astounding though imo
I'm not everyone but i disagree. Although i agree that Asylum was better. :D

I'll probably get tossed out of a moving train for saying this but i liked Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the imperfects. I also liked Superman 64 lol. I was 6 when i played it and i loved anything Superman so i was just happy to get the chance to play as him >_< I remember saying "One day they'll make an awesome Superman game",,,, still waiting.

They will never make a good Superman game because the guy is practically invincible. It's kinda like using an infinite health code in another game. It's fun for a while but then you become bored. Superman games are pretty much like that but you can never turn off the code. They could dumb down his powers but then it wouldn't feel like Superman.

SuperMan 64. I got it cheap at a local video store when I was 13 where I used to live. It was only 25 cents. I got it only because of how bad I heard it was. YES, it really IS that bad.

Also: Anyone remember that terrible Spawn: The Eternal game for PS1? Wow I remember giving my big sister all of my allowance so she could go buy it for me (since I was under-aged), and then when I played it I damned near ripped my hair out. Trash game.

Once you understand that the "fog" is actually kryptonite fog, then you start to realize that it is actually one of the greatest games ever created.

Lol that was just a dumb excuse used to justify the horrible draw distance. Awful game, and im ashamed to say me and my roommate beat the whole game. Couldn't have done it alone tho.

Burger King guy isn't a superhero. What the hell are you talking about?

The King and Ronald are pretty much super heroes here in America. We love our burgers

As a kid I actually thought Superman 64 was good. Man what was I smoking back then?

I would like to know, i couldnt get past 10 second with that game.

I was actually fairly critical of games when i was younger. First game i ever played and beat was mario 64, so the bar was set pretty high.
