The new re-reboot of the Superman franchise is getting a lot of buzz, and now you can get in on the fun with the official Man of Steel game. It's arriving right on time, in fact. Can you save the world in this new game, or will you lose interest and go on Reddit or something while General Zod conquers Earth? Stop being so lazy, Superman.

From all appearances, this title seems like yet another Infinity Blade clone with swiping combat and pretty graphics. I mean, there's not necessarily anything wrong with that. It would just be nice to see something a little different. There are various boss battles, unlockable suits, and upgradeable powers.

The Man of Steel game is $4.99 in Google Play, which is at the high end. Still, you can be the hero Metropolis deserves, but not the one it needs right now – wait... that doesn't sound right.

    • VyktorJonas

      so will did you enter here anyway?

    • plops

      agreed.
      big company should be ashamed making games like this.
      unfortunately it becoming trend nowadays. *sigh*

    The textures are quite detailed (in some places), the background is rich, plus special effects of sunlight. Yet it looks so terrible. How?

    Saw an early screening of this movie and thought it was worth the money to watch. I might check this out since the gameplay style looks like it fits the movie well enough.

      Where'd you watch it? I went to the one in SF on Monday. Thought the same thing - was better than I expected, though longer than necessary.

        I'll be going to watch it today, and even I'm afraid of how long it'll be. Someone said Jor-El is on-screen almost 45 minutes, there's so much they've shown in the trailers, makes me wonder how they've fit everything in there. Guess I'll find out in a few hours.

          I was wondering about that too, but without spoilers, I can't tell you why his screen time is so long.

          • Abhijeet Mishra

            Haha, I've got an inkling of why he's there for so long, but even without that there seems to be a lot in the movie. Can't wait to watch it though!

          I saw it last Saturday at Fort Dix New Jersey. It was a special for us troops.

    The graphics look decent to me except for you know, the main character. Seems as though Superman is oddly proportioned.

    To be honest i doubt i would even download it if it was free.

  • Funem

    Its the head that looks wrong. it looks a bit to big and the neck a bit to long, that and the fact there is no expression changes make it look wrong. Batman games can get away with lack of expressions as the cowl covers most of the face. Also I am not sure who he is supposed to look like but he looks like a teenager rather than a man.

  • Stephen MacDougall

    It is incompatible with my Nexus 7 and Galaxy Note 2. Really? And they are charging for what is basically a promotion for the movie?

  • acei

    Not even playable, the loading times are insane and crashes often. Very disappointing

  • Tykin

    Saw this movie at an early screening on Tuesday. It was excellent!
