Superman games are notoriously terrible. In fact, I still remember that we were utterly shocked after flying through gold rings in Superman 64. Well, here's hoping that EA's Superman Returns(TM): The Videogame will set a high bar for Superman games. The game will launch alongside the summer blockbuster of the same name (June '06, all systems). The game is set to have a large open world where Metropolis is the star. There will be story missions and mini-games. I'm thinking the model for this game is the successful Spider-Man games. We'll be sure to take the Man of Steel out for a spin on our X360 when it launches. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer.

PRESS RELEASE

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Superman Returns: The Videogame

Fact sheet

When villains run rampant, only one man can rescue a world in peril. Will you be able to master your super powers to save Metropolis?

Inspired by the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures feature film and more than 60 years of DC Comics' lore, Superman ReturnsTM: The Videogame will create the ultimate open-world super hero experience.

As the Man of SteelTM, you'll hone your unworldly super powers such as Flight, X-Ray Vision, Heat Vision, Super Hearing, Super Strength, Super Speed, and Super Breath to fight villains that only SupermanTM can defeat. Explore your super powers to discover new uses and combinations: use Heat Vision to melt a rogue car or as a focused laser-like beam to cut through thick metal; use Super Breath to move heavy objects or freeze villains into solid ice. You can also combine powers and interact with your environment; for instance, freeze water spouting from a broken fire hydrant into a giant icicle with your Super Breath and use your Super Strength to hurl it at an enemy.

Get ready to take flight, as Superman Returns' revolutionary new mechanics allow you to take full command of your aerial maneuvers. You're not limited to flying over 800 mph (faster than a speeding bulletTM) ? you can also corral your enemies, perform stunning in-air acrobatics, instigate Super Speed missile-like attacks, and much more.

In Superman Returns: The Videogame, you explore and protect the truly living city of Metropolis ? one that is not only expansive (with 80 sq miles and over 10,000 buildings), but also changes dynamically with you as you affect gameplay. Citizens will run away in terror from newly-erupting danger and also exit their cars to cheer and snap photos as you fly overhead to save them.

Superman may be invincible, but Metropolis is not. Player choice matters, as Metropolis' destruction will affect your ability to progress. You must face the internal conflict facing Superman at every turn: will you pause your pursuit of super villains to stop a massive tornado sweeping through the city and save its civilians? Every decision made is critical to Metropolis' existence and can affect the collateral damage meter, which ultimately keeps the player in the game.
This is not just another movie-based game. This is the Superman game you've always wanted to play. Utilizing more than 60 years of rich history, Superman Returns: The Videogame is the ultimate Superman experience for players.

Features

Missions and Mini-games
With notorious villains like Metallo and Parasite, and colossal challenges only Superman can overcome, you must navigate the Man of Steel to monitor and protect Metropolis from destruction.
