Default Re: The Video Game Thread

How about a game where Superman flies through rings?

Right, lets look at the problems Superman games have.

1) Metropolis is made so big, it looks crap.
2) Superman is way too powerful, so it doesn't give the player a challenge.
3) When he's given health, it's criticized. When he doesn't, it's criticized for giving the player no challenge.
4) He's so powerful, that his enemies are unique for him...Which doesn't go down to well with players.
5) Every game becomes repetitive very quickly.

There's tons more. But it's easy to understand why Superman games haven't been all that great...Nobody knows what the hell to do with him!
