Superman games have been B-A-D. I’m not entirely sure why, but it seems like none of the games based on the classic comic character have been any good. Most recently we’ve seen the it’s-cool-to-make-fun-of-this Superman 64 which could stand in for an a-hole relative at family gatherings and Superman Returns (developed by EA Tiburon who know Madden and that’s about all) which sucked as bad as the movie.
Back in November Factor 5, (in)famous for the PS3-exclusive Lair, let a little something-something slip that they were hard at work on a brand new Man of Steel adventure. However, with publisher Brash Entertainment folding and the fate of Factor 5 itself still up in the air, it’s looking like the project has gone to its Fortress of Solitude. Some screenshots and a super short video, supposedly leaked by the devs, pull back the curtain for a tease of what could have been. It’s not much, but people go batshit bananas for superhero stuff and I like to give the people what they want. I’m keeping the underoos, though.
