NowGamer: Rocksteady on lack of good Superman games.
I'm an agreement. It's hard to make a game when your lead character is incredibly powerful. That's actually the reason why I'm not a fan of the Superman comics. Of course you could create a game using a story hook that limits his powers, like Mortal Kombat managed to do, but then it feels a little cheap.
Batman's a much cooler character, for sure. Still be interested to see a game nail Supes though - but how to do it without stripping his powers away?
you'd have to mix in the use of kyrptonite in the game, as well as villians that are just as powerful like Bizarro Superman...at least have a Bizarro level in the game if not base the whole game on that.
Just bring in Doomsday and he'll kick his ass. Lol, anyway, would love to c a good Supes game. He was always my favorite superhero behind Spidey.
Have you seen Asura's Wrath? That dude power level makes Superman look like a newborn kitten, yet the game looks to be potentially awesome!
There are a lot of guys more powerful than SuperMan in the DC Universe, but they are rather corny and not fitting for a good game/story. 12
I felt superman was boring and a generic super hero but I did love all star suoerman
They should make a "real" spiderman game. Dark,gritty, open world, stealth focused one. Their are a lot of better heroes than SM, but some needs to do him a great game, because he has had more than enough mediocre ones. SM2 was close, but not close enough.
Superman 64... Just saying.
I don't think I've ever played a Superman game. Probably because - New Adventures Of Superman aside - I tend not to enjoy anything with Superman in it.
Shame... You know what is suited for a good video game but really hasn't had a good one, Spiderman.........just saying...Hint Hint
for the ps2 nailed what a spiderman game should be like. everyone moved away from it though. ultimate spiderman for the ps2 was also really good
It was an alright game with those features it presented but the movie tie in plot and those elements which make games always fall into the "Movie Tie in Curse" is what kept it from being a really good game or even breaking the "curse" it's self Yet not one developer after saw what made that game more liked then other movie tie in games. If we had a open world city map like the size of Just Cause 2's map, the side missions/morality feature from inFamous and a good story from Rocksteady...it could be an amazing game.
the games story is lackluster, but the open world random crimes, the upgradeable character, and controls were what made the story great the template is there... it was similar in ultimate spiderman, it's all up to developers to pull a story from spidey's 60+ year history.... i would love to see rockstar's take on the web-slinger
"it's all up to developers to pull a story from spidey's 60+ year history" You know it's funny how with 60 years worth of Spiderman stories they haven't been able to create an amazing Spiderman game yet It's like the new film coming out....60 years worth of stories and they do another Origin story. I would of liked to see a film or even game from Rocksteady featuring an older Spiderman in his early thirties where he's battle villains multiple times untill he's faced with a new challenged..............actual ly since I'm not a comic buff has there been a comic featuring an older Peter Parker/Spiderman. Would love to see film/game based on a Darker, wiser Peter Parker. The whole young Spiderman thing is getting stale now that's why I hate how the film has set it when he's in Highschool.
It will never happen because Warner Bros owns Rocksteady... and DC. Marvel is it's rival so it can never happen. I also think Sucker Punch can make a great Spider-Man game but chances of that happening is also very unlikely.
Based on the past Superman games, I am inclined to agree....
THE FLASH !!!
The problem is in all the games they have Superman going up against his mental opponents and not villians like Doomsday or Darkside. Superman struggles with several of his enemies...developers just suck and putting him in good fight situations.
They just have to make it fun to be all powerful then contrast that with his vulnerability. I think current hardware us the reason for lack of Good superman games, he'd need a huge open world and massively destructive environments.
Oh come on really? Superman just never had a chance to be in a good game but that doesn't make him unsuitable. If anyone watched the new Adventures of Superman or Justice league you would realize Superman is vulnerable to not only krptonite but high pitched sound, high voltage electricity, red sunlight, high impact weaponry,magic and strong opponents like Bizarro and Solomon Grundy. Just because Superman doesn't have to crawl through vents or sneak around to avoid things doesn't mean he isn't vulnerable. Many times Superman has been made vulnerable by people like Luminious, Parasite, Captain Marvel, Metallo, Braniac and Darkseid.Superman can be placed in intense situations that threaten his life as well. Heck an Apocalypse level alone would put him in a life and death situation.I am sure if someone with vision put there nose to the grindstone they could make an epic Superman game that doesn't involve him fighting tornadoes or flying through rings
I agree that it's possible to have a good Superman game, but the Superman from cartoons are the worst...especially ssn 1 of Justice League and New Adventures. They basically crippled him.
I disagree. It's better then the old Superman where you had to make up reasons for kryptonite to make an apperance just to make him weak. Now it makes more sense. Superman's strength has nothing to do with how sound, electricity or high impact weapons or punches knock him down. Sound still penetrates his ears, electricity still flows through him and impacts still knock him back. It was boring to see how much kryptonite the villains had in their pockets to stop Superman with. You would think there was a kryptonite mine somewhere on Earth that they could buy some whenever they needed it. New Superman shows he isn't unstoppable and kryptonite is not the only thing that can beat him. I personally enjoyed the fact that Captain Marvel and Black Adam could go toe to toe with him with their magic
You should check out how they handle Superman in the comics. Enemies exploit his weakness to magic and lack of Sunlight(Batman once had Supermans powers. Because he's Batman, he hunted at night which drained his power so much that Nightwing drew blood from him. Supes must always recharge whether he's been through a tough battle or has been out of sunlight for extended periods), or enemies that are just stronger than him like Darkseid, Mongol, or alternate Supermen. Don't get me wrong, I hate how overpowered Superman is at times, but to see him get thrown around by Grundy or almost killed by Live Wire...a low level super villian /facepalm Everytime there's a new Superman animated movie, they almost always make him weaker than he really is. If you've ever seen the Superman/Batman movie Apocalypse... ******spoiler******** The Darkseid fight ends with Superman (after a nice beating from Darkseid, who beat up both Superman and Supergirl during that fight) punching Darkseid into a boomtube that left him floating in deep space. In the comics, Superman (after a nice beating from Darkseid and the presumed death of Kara Kent) swoops up Darkseid and carried him to the sun (presumably to recharge), where he proceeded to punch Darkseid's face in. He says a few lines about Kara's life, then punches him threw a boomtube that led to the Source Wall, where Darksied was trapped. Kara wasn't in that fight for long and she definitely didn't help Superman beat up Darkseid.
A superman game can be made interesting. there are equally powerful enemies in superman universe- parasite, darkseid and the monstrous doomsday etc. imagine a game where u play as clark kent for a while on earth and slowly move the story into some other planet with the super-villans around. of course an engine with large-scale destruction might make it even better. everything is possible, but what matters is how something is put together.
The only way I see a superman game being any good is if its a war on earth game, and its open world, really unleash his powers, and huge enemies and mass amounts of enemies maybe could slow him down..? and he can tangle with Bizzaro, Shazam, Batman with his krypto suit, and lex with his krypto suit. and the ultimate badguy could be SUPERBOY after he got out of that prison. Maybe some point Kal-El could come across the old golden age superman.
The problem with every Superman game is how they cram someone like Superman into ONE city like he's batman. Batman is to Gotham City, as Superman is to the World. You'd have to create a playground large enough for someone that moves as fast as Superman....and that's not possible. Incidentally, there will never be a good game starring Flash....
im waiting for that superman game, that no one can make and then i can die happy......afer ive played it a dozen times.u tell me they cany make this work...talented developers huh.
They could just make a Young Justice game.
