Am I the only person really exited over this game. You don't here much about it.

Anerythristic266264d ago

I was excited about it but at this point I'm waiting for reviews on this game. If it is even decent I'll be all over it I'm a Superman fan.

ASSASSYN 36o6264d ago

I can`t wait to play it. But, it is EA. Im not that much of a EA fan.

I honestly agree that I think this game will majorly blow, it's done by EA and I personally have decided that ea blows, they lie, con and cheat consumers and gamers alike, and even if this does turn out to be good, I still won't give them my money

RealDoubleJ6264d ago

buy it 2nd hand. Then EA won't see a single penny off you & (hopefully) you'll enjoy the first ever decent Superman game.

I'm hoping we don't have another Superman N64 Fiasco. That was possibly the worst game EVER made.

PS360PCROCKS6264d ago

Good point, I love Spiderman because you can go anywhere, and the fact their doing that is really cool, I would buy it 2nd hand to go around EA

Check out the sizzler trailer up at IGN.COM.

im over seeing games that come out on old gen consoles making their way to 360, even if the graphics are updated its still not designed to be truly next gen, i bought burnout revenge, great game but im not wasting cash on anything but the best from now on! i was interested in sonic but uhh not after the dodgy demo, bring on GOW and bioshock!


Why can nobody make a good Superman game? | FingerGuns

He's the most powerful hero, on paper the perfect character for video games. But why is it so hard to make a good Superman game?

Better question is why can nobody make solo videogames based on non-Batman DC superheroes.

PaulCollett2152d ago

Hopefully the new Spiderman will sort that out

Reckless_Love2152d ago

Spiderman is Marvel.

Nobody can make a good Superman game because he's too powerful. He can fly faster than the speed of sound, has the ability to shoot lasers from hia eyes and can punch harder than a round from a tank. He's immune to what almost all of humanity can throw at him.

So imagine the scope of the sandbox you'd need. Then how would you make him feel capable of such destruction? Then how do you make it so you try and avoid that destruction and care about npcs?

Absolute nightmare to try and make a game out of.

Goldby2152d ago

his lifebar is the "health" of the city
or just like how batman was poisoned with the joker blood in the arkham series, you could ahve him poisoned by kryptonite so he is overall weaker or weaker as the game goes on.

jaymacx2151d ago

I used to have the sentiment that no one can make a Superman game because of how powerful he is. I thought really hard about it.

+ they could have enemies that can harm him. He is vulnerable to magic, kryptonite and the red sun.
+ make it mission based and if too many civilians die , you have to start over etc.
Sumperman maybe powerful but he still is limited.
Whatever challenges he has in the comics needs to be fleshed out in the game.

JBaby3432151d ago

The problem with these ideas is that they ultimately take the fun out of the game.

If you use something to weaken Superman then you're not really playing as Superman using the powers he has so that defeats the point of a game where you are Superman.

If you use the city/citizenry as a life bar then every scenario becomes either a timed event or one where you are walking (flying) on eggshells to prevent too many deaths. Both are annoying and again defeats the purpose of being able to destroy stuff with fun powers.

You cannot really create a challenge or tension without missions being tedious or limiting the very powers that makes us want to play.

New Spider-Man game on PS4..

Aenea2152d ago

Which is a Marvel comic, not a DC one....


He is too powerful... You realize what kind of rig you would need to be able to fly through a city or a large map as fast as he can and render the world without bad pop in? There is a reason GTA V and other open world games won't allow you to go very fast through the world. Forza Horizon and Just Cause do a really good job of loading the world at high speeds, but not superman speed ;)

gangsta_red2151d ago

DC has so many underused heroes that they could utilize and it's a shame that Batman is the only one they can market.

InKnight7s2151d ago

Because Batman is just a human with fancy gadgets as every action games with extra cartoonish stuff. But flash as example he is super fast and normal developers like WB studios cant really fit superpowers into agameplay in proper way. We need that project of an studio who put all their power and creativity to simulate superpowers beyond Prototype and Infamous yet enjoyable and creative.
We are missing Iron Man, Thor, flash, GL, WW, Superman because of that limitations and typical form of superpowers in games.

I think is because super man is over powered.
Is hard to make villains for such a hero without crippling super man. Plus flying around can get a little boring. D.C. Universe online showed me this

sampsonon2152d ago

it would be fine if the story is good. they can always gimp Superman's abilities using kryptonite weapons or mutant like creatures. they could also do the three villains from Kryton, Zod, Ersa , and the other guy lol from superman 2.
it must be more story driven with great acting.

alb18992152d ago

Yep, it is almost the same with movies.

gangsta_red2151d ago

He is not overpowered.

Superman has many villains that can go toe to toe with him and even put him down.

Goldby2151d ago

Batman being one of them

gangsta_red2151d ago

"Batman being one of them"
