Loosely modeled off of the feature film Superman Returns, the game ventures into a more intricate story. After stopping a meteor shower from destroying Metropolis, Superman ventures to the planet Krypton only to find it destroyed and undiscovered. Upon his return home he is stopped by the Warlord where he faces off against Mongul. Victory goes to Superman and upon returning home, he finds that it is overrun with robots and their leader Metallo. To make matters worse, Lex Luthor has broke into the Fortress of Solitutde and now has an evil plan to create his own continent of land with a kryptonite crust. Using the man of steel as well as his many talents and techniques, saving Metropolis is just one step in Superman Returns to saving the entire world. Written by commanderblue

Better than the Nintendo 64 game, but a bitter disappointment nonetheless.
2 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

Superman Returns is a game based off the movie of the same name. The movie was a disappointment so I am not sure why I expected the game to be good, but I had high hopes for the game. I know that while they may not have the villains in the film, they always generally add some cool villains into the game. To make it longer and to add more excitement, I mean you are not exactly going to have a blast playing a game based off returns are you? If it followed the movie exactly you would only get two action scenes and then you would have to stalk Louis Lane for an extended period of time. This game has Superman getting sidetracked on his way back to Earth and it was somewhat interesting, the controls were not great, but much better than the 64 version (which is not saying much at all by the way). You make it to Earth and you get to fly around Metropolis, however while it has a sandbox look to it, it does not play like a Grand Theft Auto, as you cannot do what you want. You are constantly having to battle villains, usually in the form of robots. You get to be Bizarro at times, but I did not really care for it as the controls become obviously more flawed within the city. Usually in a game of this type you get to collect things, here you only get to collect kitty cats. By collecting these kitty cats you gain more life, which means when you continuously keep battling those robots and other challenges you are essentially getting nothing! Seriously, make it so you gain experience and get more powerful! Though you are supposed to be Superman, I believe you should be more powerful than everything else anyway. Suffice to say it is a game I quickly lost interest in. The city itself is a bore, better than the 64 texture less nightmare, but it still is not busy enough and exciting enough. It should be fun simply flying through the place, instead the only excitement is when the city is assailed by robots! And that quickly wears thin. Maybe one day they will make a Superman game that is indeed super.
