The latest in the mocked Superman series of games has arrived, but will Superman Returns be able to bring the soiled name back from the grave?
First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles. If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.
Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred. Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game. All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.
Lacking Narrative Skill: The story of Superman Returns: The Videogame is supposed to be based off of the hit movie that was recently released. In case you missed the movie, the plotline tells the story of how Superman grew to become the Man of Steel to the public.Unfortunately, the story is barely comprehensible and will not be able to provide you with a narrative that is even close to being worth your time.
Still Craptacular: The story is not the only aspect of the game that fails spectacularly, as the gameplay falls short of sub-par...again.The world that Superman Returns is suppose to provide you with an open world that you can explore at will using Superman's powers. Unfortunately, the world does not feel alive in any manner and the entire city seems to have gone on vacation. While you can pick up cars, freeze and blow some stuff up with your laser vision, as well as fight random robots scattered throughout the city, the gameplay simply is not enjoyable. The gameplay is clunky, repetitive and plodding. You never feel like you are in complete control over the city or that people are watching you as you fly over the buildings. In addition the visuals and the sound effects are horrible in every single way. Your environments are drab, undetailed, and boring, and the sound effects are horrid at best.
Rent vs. Buy: Superman Returns: The Videogame is absolutely terrible, plain and simple.There really is no hiding the tedious gameplay, hideous graphics, horrendous sound effects and bad story. Stay away at all costs.
