Preview: Superman Returns: The Videogame

With a Hollywood blockbuster movie now out in front of the game, here's how Electronic Arts is planning to make Superman Returns: The Video Game a star.

Electronic Arts has had a miss (Catwoman) and a hit (Batman Begins) with its annual summer collaborations with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics. Superman Returns: The Video Game looks like another step in the right direction for the game publisher, which is expanding the game's world beyond the scope of the film and tapping into the rich comics' history.

"Historically, it's been hard to make Superman games," said Jason Hall, senior vice president of WBIE. "He's an invulnerable character that can only be hurt by one thing."

while I dont trust EA, what they said brings hope, hopefully this could be cool like Spiderman 2 was cause u got to go anywhere

USMChardcharger6515d ago

someone will do a good superman game...eventually. and maybe this will be it.

i would like to point out that they considered the batman begins game a sucess? i thought it got poor reviews and it played really bad, maybe i am wrong.

But I do hope that EA could pull this off. They do have enough money and programmers to make a good Superman game. As long it's not the guys who worked on the Marvel Nemesis game. That game sucked.


It's A Crime That There's No Sleeping Dogs 2 Yet

Huzaifah from eXputer: "Sleeping Dogs from the early 2010s is one of the best open-world games out there but in dire need of a resurgence."

I agree, I consider the first one a cult classic already

You say "yet" as if it's even possible anymore. United Front Games is gone, along with anyone that made this game what it is

That’s what happens when games sell poorly. And I’ve seen people wonder why people cry when a game sells badly… this is your answer.

Majority of the time it's true but if a company/publisher is big (in terms of money), they can take a hit or 2. e.g. I am not worried about Rebirth sales as Square will make Remake 3 anyway but if FF 17 doesn't sell then Square might need to look for alternative. <-- my humble opinion

Doesn’t Microsoft own the IP now since they acquired Activision?

Sleeping Dogs was a sleeper hit back then. It was fantastic. It actually still is. Would love a sequel to this, or at least a revive of True Crime series.


Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-earth II - PC Wore it Better

Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-earth II was an intriguing and unique RTS title, that sadly suffered in its console port.

Was just thinking about this game and wishing I had a way to revisit it. The way EA scrubs these titles from existence once their licensing runs out is horrid.

there is a client made by modders and it also works online.

Indeed. The game can still be played online on PC.

Xbox 360 players, though? Bang outta luck.
