Bechtloff's Book of Genesis: Superman

Ever been reading a Superman comic and thought "This would be way better if Superman just walked around on roof tops getting his ass kicked by robots that looked like toasters." Well then this is the game for you.
Doesn't that just fill you with excitement. Superman's going for a walk. Now we know where J Michael Straczynski got the idea. To accuse this game of sucking balls would be to owe an apology to games that suck balls. The graphics are poor, looking more like 8-bit than 16 bit half the time. The controls are stiff, the game is insanely difficult and not even remotely fun.

Most of the early superhero games are pretty poor, the tech just wasn't there to simulate being one of these characters until the early 2000's. Also our favorite Kryptonian has had a pretty rough history with video games, but this might be his one of his worst, certainly the worst one I ever played (and no, I haven't played Superman 64). Unless you're a hardcore Superman fan who just has to try this for yourself do not buy this game. I payed $2.00 for it and still feel cheated, like I paid $2.00 to get punched in the nads.
