Superman Returns screenshots

Taken from the upcoming trailer.

EA is really hyping their upcoming Superman Returns trailer, but with graphics like this, who's to blame them? Here you see four sneak-peak screenshots from the trailer, which will be released on February 28th. Of course we're going to mirror it here at Boomtown, too.

The screenshots show the giant version of Metallo going toe-to-toe with Superman. EA has been working with DC to include some of the greatest super-villains of all time and in this case, Metallo has been able to absorbed enough metal to grow to over 60 stories tall...



more screens.

WoW. I'm underwhelmed.

That looks horrid and only marginally better then the last Supes game. If that is going on the X360 it better have alot more then that graphically!

i think it looks pretty cool. i also like the fact you have to be careful and protect the people in the city while battling your enemy. so the computer can try to topple over a building, so now you have to go save the people under it, but at the same time the enemy can attack you... sounds fun.

not a big superman fan, but the above game mechanics could get me playing.

I agree. There are a lot of opportunities for interesting gameplay with Superman, almost none of which have been used in Superman games to this point. I'm interested to see what they come up with.

It must be tough to design though, since he's virtually indestructible. I hope they don't cop out and make him vulnerable to punches and bullets from random thugs.

Quoted for agreement. I know its early days for the next gen, but pretty much everything released so far looks like xbox 1.5 rather than propper next gen. For me, the only game that looks different enough to be called next gen has got to be Fight Night 3. Superman looks like a current gen game with slightly more polys. :shrug:

"Magic wand, make my monster grow!"

Hope the game is very loosely based on the film...

Wow, what a piece of s--t.

Did Superman fly around the earth at an incredible rate, reversing it's orbit, turning CG back 15 years?

I mean god, that really sucked. How can EA even release such a horrid trailer for such a big title. Or any title for that matter?

Damn!

Seriously. Jeez. I know EA have some killer artists, so I imagine they were under huge time constraints or it was a tiny team, there must be some reason this is so piss-poor. Superman looks shocking.

I know its all too easy to simply trash stuff, I would never expect something like this from the worlds biggest game developer, with the worlds biggest super hero at a time when we have "small" studios like Blur stunning us with their cinematics like Warhammer.

Wonder if this was outsourced...

using in game content for FMV is so cheap!

That trailer was not in-game footage. It was a pre-rendered "cinematic".
EA farmed it out to a post house.
Almost every game I've seen in the last couple of years looks much better than thaat.

Now, this tells me that if you want to wreck havoc in a city using a killer robot, you shouldn't be in the centor of it POINTED OUT BY A BIG GREEN CIRCLE.
