Summary

If you like fighting the same 6 enemies over and over, this is your game.

The Good

Having a couple of different Superman variations to play as is a nice touch, as well as the different moves Superman could do (throwing people off of buildings, smashing them into walls, etc.). There are also a couple of villains that have been taken from the comic books and put into the game.

The Bad

All of the Supermen have almost exactly the same attacks. The landscapes are really uninspired and are repeated through the entire level. Every flying level is verbatim of the last and plays like an incredibly rushed shoot 'em up. The difficulty is ridiculous and you only get to fight 2-3 of the same enemies through the entire level(fighting takes forever and levels are stretched out longer than they should be).

The Bottom Line

I love brawl/beat 'em up type games, but this one is untouchable. The only reasons I could see owning/buying this game is either you're a huge Superman fan or you actually liked Superman 64.
