Doesn't Superman deserve a good game for once? Now that Rocksteady has revolutionized Batman, maybe they should do the same for the Man of Steel.
Rocksteady is owned by Warner Bros. Interactive.
And? they have the DC license. They can do it. But they already said a Superman game will be difficult to develop.
I believe WB owns DC as a whole.
The reason there haven't been any good Superman games is because, in my opinion, Superman is boring. It's not the beating up thugs and the flying around that make a good Superman story, but that's all you're going to do in a video game. I'd love to see somebody make a good Supes game (and if anybody can, I'd have faith in Rocksteady), I just don't think it can be done.
No, its that Superman is too powerful. A group of average street thugs isn't going to be any kind of a challenge to him, by all right shouldn't be able to hurt him in any way, so they have to either be given kryptonite or super weapons.
Smallville proved that Superman can be believably vulnerable and entertaining to watch. Maybe make a Smallville game? Smallville RPG
And that's what makes him boring. He's virtually unstoppable, so to make the game fun, the developers would have to come up with contrivances upon contrivances in order to make the gameplay work.
i think the scar of superman 64 is still strong .. BUt seeing how many superman player look alike there is in DC universe online i think that there is a potential .
Go read Crisis on infinite Earths, Infinite Crisis and Final Crisis, you could even read Superman: All Star and then dare to tell me he is boring.
I remember the PS2 game based on the animated series being decent. The trouble with Superman games is defining a fail state for a character who is invincible.
Exactly! How many gamers would get pissed off if the Man of Steel went down from the common thugs that made up the level leading to the boss? They could strip his powers at the beginning of the game and make you earn them back like almost every other game ever, but that'd suck as well. It'd be a tough game to make no matter what.
Oh s*** yes, that would be awesome...especially if they can do a dark story with it.
Nintendogs: Krypto the Superdog Edition...please.
Rocksteady + Superman = JIZZ
Nah man let them do a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game, they seem pretty good at making beat em ups...just sucks Nickelodeon own the rights to them now, RIP TMNT.
Its not practical ..as superman whats the challange if you can't die , nothing can harm the player, that dosent give any gameplay opportunities. Not very comic character can be converted into a video game thats why there is no popular Iron man , Captan ameica game etc.
I think a good Superman would be the ultimate game of choice. Superman is practically invulnerable, but in a game that presented a situation in which a lot of people are in danger at the same time and you have to choose who to save and who to let die would really force players to step into the shoes of the supposedly boring, perfect hero and see that having ultimate power isn't as great as you might think. Add the element of Lex Luthor/Kryptonite, Darkseid, and other big villains to the constant cries for help and a lot of gamers might freak out trying to decide what to do, who to save, and how to defeat enemies who are almost as powerful as Superman himself.
um Batman AA isnt really all that fun, im not sure what everyone is seeing. im playing it and the combat is so horribly easy even on hard that i dont see the point of the game, also the weak open world is pretty stale, no civilians, just a bunch of water, roof tops and bat vision. hoping the game gets better but im doubtful because the combat has been thee same since the first game.....oh well somethin must be wrong with me
I say make a super hero game and let me build my own guy, aka DC Universe Online, Champions and City of Heroes.
Superman is stupid. He's invincible to everything except Kryptonite. He can shoot lasers out of his eyes, pick up airplanes, and fly at super sonic speeds. I really don't understand how a guy with virtually no weaknesses ends up getting killed in video games.
There is already a game similar to superman that was released by CAPCOM not too long ago... Forgot the name but it is similar to Rocketeer but it bombed hard. It is hard to make a superman game due to the Villians are not that interesting and overpowered.
Just give us a open world game where superman can punch holes in buildings and all that other overpowered stuff and just focus on making it as close to superman 2as possible cuz they were funking shit up the the whole movie. To work on his speed just make it pressure sensitive so you can slow him down around corners or just bust through the 30th floor of the daily planet and make the city look like Swiss cheese.
