Summary

Now I can say I like Superman

The Good

I have discovered the world of Superman with this game, and what used to be a boring super-hero has now become really interesting to me. The story is good, Doomsday is one God damn villain, and the "clones" of Superman are as cool as the original. Oh, and some Gradius-like levels to make it enjoyable and unrepetitive, yes Sir.

The Bad

Ten levels and no passwords. Pretty hard to finish this game knowing that. And well, enemies are kinda weird. Not sure they really come from the comic book but hey, I might be wrong.

The Bottom Line

It's Final Fight with Superman, and maybe the only good game of the franchise. Nuff said. Now excuse me, I want to read some Superman comics.
