I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

What do these ratings mean?

Some people say he’s a bird, some say he’s a plane, but what I do I say he is? I say he’s one of the greatest superheroes ever created by Detective Comics (DC for short). Lady’s and gentlemen please help me introduce to the “Man of Steel” Superman!

 

Superman is out and about ready to kick Lex Luthor’s ass! But, oh-no!  Lex Luthor has trapped Lois, Prof. Hamilton, and Jimmy Olsen. You as playing the role of Superman must find a way to enter this virtual dimension and try helping your pals. That’s one thing about superheroes and superheroines that just make laugh and cry, no matter how much you try stopping a villain, they’re always back with some scheme that way beyond the word  “wacko.”

 

Mentioning the word “villain” in the last paragraph, you aren’t just going to encounter Lex Luthor. Oh no no no, that would be to easy for those guns on Superman’s arms. Instead, you get to battle with Darksied, Metallo, and Bizzaro. Together, this army of villains will completely “try” to destroy you. But, come’on, how could anything (besides kryptonite) destroy the “Man of Steel?”

 

Well being stuck in this virtual world does much damage to Superman more than I can remember. You’ll have to explore the area by flying. With this amazing power, you’re able to reach certain areas in the game that would be much harder to find if you didn’t have that power. But the thing is, Superman doesn’t just have the flying ability. He has “super-breath” “heat-vision” and even “super-speed.” Having all these abilities is endless of fun, except Titus (the publisher of this game of course!) decided to make it much more challenging. So, they didn’t give an unlimited supply of these powers. No, instead you have to go around and obtain power-up to make Superman bad-ass.

 

Another topic I like to have in video games about comic books is any multiplayer action. Oh god, being able to play with a couple of your friends as Superman? I get so excited, because NO, you don’t just play as Superman. Nope, instead you and your pals get to decide when you want to be Superman, or one of Lex Luthor’s minions. YOU AND YOUR PALS get to battle it out in a deathmatch or a race. In my opinion, I love racing a little more because you’re like “Oh I’m so going to catch up to you with my flying thing.”

 

Overall, I can’t believe this game is being discriminated or even being insulted. Sure the graphics are a little off, but that’s the thing, they decided to make the graphics a little off to help with vision…heat-vision! The controls are just plain awesome! Being able to hit buttons a couple times more is just way of helping us exercise. I think that’s what the world need is just that “little push” to get us going. That way we could be fit and healthy just like Superman!

 

This games is full of excitement, since it’s for the Nintendo 64 I can’t imagine what they would do if it was released for any other system. Until then, I’m giving this great game an A+ like it should deserve

 
 

*Happy April Fools!
