    no , my appeal to Smallville is the storyline and character development. a Smallville themed game would seem kind of bleh.

    Okay, I thought this was a thread *announcing* a SV game. Now I'm disappointed. :(



    Would I buy a SV game? Well HELL yeah. Duh! LOL Get one out there. :mad:

    Sorry about the thread confusion. I think after the series is done and overwith (which I hope doesn't come too soon) a game should be made. I think it would be interesting. It's kind of a hit or miss, though; Like all of the Superman video games. They've got a bad track record and I hope with Superman Returns: The Videogame, it makes up for the horrible games in the past.

    I thought it was an announcement too. Ah well, now I can't get the thought of an SV game out of my head.

    There's another thread here somewhere (way buried, I'm sure) that delves into options and suggestions for a SV game. If you go back about 20 pages, you'll probably find it. It's an interesting read. ;)

    I think one of the draws of such a game is what makes the show so popular. Unlike other Superman games, this one would start from scratch, so to speak. Players could actually develop the character from the beginning, add powers/abilities, intelligence, wisdom, etc. I find that more enjoyable when there's a clear cut destination for the *character*, and not just taking them from one battle to the next.

    Well, it's like Bulok said. Bulok is for the development of the characters and plot, and I think the same character and plot development should be incorporated into the game.

    Will never happen. Kids wouldnt want to play most of the game as teenage Clark Kent.

    They want to be able to fly around a free-roaming Metropolis, into space and into the Fortress as the real Man of Steel in the blue tights...either saving the day or having fun causing serious damage and chaos. :up:

    I could see it. You start out playing as young Clark with speed, strength, and a lower invulnerability, and have to unlock your other powers as you go.Then you collect the stones, unlock the FOS, and then eventually you achieve the suit. You could have 3 free roaming "cities" like GTA with Smallville, Metropolis, and then like Grandville or Edge City...

    They could also have you as Lex doing business dealings, opening up labs, doing experimentation, causing general havoc.

    I'd buy it.

    Thatd be a hugeass project for a tv show game. While that sounds interesting, it doesnt really seem likely....close to impossible.

    I think if they wanted to go overboard and make multiple free-roaming cities, it would have been in the new game coming out it fall. Remember that game isnt just based off the movie, its a celebration of 70 years of comics also and Superman in general. Its the big one.

    LOL "a celebration of 70 years of comics," yeah I'm not buying that hype until I see it. I dont trust EA as far as I can throw them.

    So would I. There's a challenge to a game like that; it's not just about beating up bad guys and wanton destruction. There's PLENTY of games out there that do that a HELLUVA lot better than any superhero-based game. My husband has a ton of 'em, and they all do the same kind of things. It all looks rather boring, and in fact, he doesn't hang with one game for more than a few days.

    They could add all sorts of easter eggs with a SV game too - Kal-mode (LOL) where he could fly, but something else would be at that expense, different colored Kryptonite traps... oh, there's a lot they could do. But I'm just repeating what I said in the other thread. Somebody should just bump it so Morg can merge the two.

    thats the general problem with any Superman game, is that you effectively play in God mode the whole time. The past few have become repetitive crap just for that reason. Atleast with a Smallville type game you'd be working to achieve the god mode at the end instead of starting off that way

    Did you see this?

    With only 40% complete, I'd say this gameplay is enough to have some trust in what theyre doing. It got awesome reviews by those who were at E3.

    I've heard it all before. They said the same things last year and I got suckered into buying the Batman Begins game. I took it back 3 days later. The SR game COULD very well be good, I just wont believe it until I've played it.

    BINGO!!

    Back in the mid 90's, I used to play Doom All. The. Time. A friend gave me the keycode for... you guessed it... invulnerability. I never realized how boring a game could be until I played it that way. Then I was pissed at my friend for showing it to me. LOL I stopped playing Doom after a day of learning the keycode. How pathetic is that?

    What didnt you like about Begins? I thought it was decent. Definately fun, the full Batman expierence of beating information out of criminals and playing detective. I loved it, espeically the graphics.

    The game was far too linear for a modern game, and the kept giving you those really obvious interactions, like telling you which crate to blow up, use the batarang, etc. It was really simplistic.

    The graphics were cool, and the "fear" thing was original but I just felt it was a really dumbed down game.

    I somewhat kinda prefer simplistic, thats why I like games like GTA, where your guy creates havok and Bendis' Ultimate Spiderman where Venom goes around eating women and children.

    When games get too cerebral (ie: strategy, RPGs) they get very boring, like playing chess.

    I guess a good mix is having challenging story missions in the game while having a free-roaming GTA-esque backdrop between levels....that way, the game could still be fun after you finish all the missions.

    yeah I like a less complicated game myself being that I'm 30, work full time, and cant devote hours on end playing the game. However, BB felt like you were in "training mode" the whole game. I felt like I was playing Splinter Cell for people with head injuries or something LOL :D

    Hmm likely because it was always a tightly controlled game and not a GTA style game where anything could happen.

    I thought about getting Batman Begins but I heard mix reviews I have The Punisher though and I love that game so I am wondering if the game is more like that one?
