Another Superman Returns-image

Another Superman Returns-image

EA sent this image of Superman Returns. It's from an upcoming trailer and not a gameplay screenshot according to them, so I guess we can call it a render. The grand announcement with the trailer is supposed to happen next week, before or on the 1st of March.

Hope they can do this kind of smoke with the game-engine.
Or they could take the smoke-engine from CoD2 and use it horizontally ;)

Commented on 2006-02-21 15:48:31

Not a gameplay screenshot, but there's still the chance its an in-engine cut scene right?
Commented on 2006-02-21 16:12:53
smoke and the city look crazy. ill rent this one.
Commented on 2006-02-21 16:20:44
i'm pretty confident that this could be done in realtime. "not gameplay" doesn't mean "not in-engine"

nope but the game is gonna look great, i saw about 8 or 9 screenshots of it in my game informer about 2 or 3 months ago, they get everything WAY earlier than everybody else. I read up on it and i cant wait to play it.

I don't want screens, I want video feeds. Geez!!! We're in the next generation, we want HD video feeds! HDTV+Broadband already!

It's freaking EA, what do you expect. I'm surprised this isn't listed as "target footage" LOL!
Commented on 2006-02-21 18:37:13
What's the point??
I want to see real ingame footage!

If this is in game then EA must have got a truck load of new talent.

There will be a vid at E3, they can't show much in video form due to movie rights i should imagine.

There is a demo online somewhere of a very nice smoke trail technology that has excellent lighting. Smoke smiliar to that is possibe -- just look at ET:QW on the PC. Sadly this pic is only a CGI :(
Commented on 2006-02-21 20:17:51
could someone post the screenshots from the Game Informer ghettopoet06 was talking about? Surely there is scans somewhere on the net right?

edit: k never mind i found em. For anyone else who wants them ill post em.

Commented on 2006-02-21 20:24:21
no scans allowed.

I'm looking forward to this game it could very well end up being a good one I remember reading in the gamespot preview that superman's punch on that giant robot was so friggin powerful it was incredible.

Shadow of the collossus on crack.

You'll definetly be able to destroy buildings because one of your objectives through out the game will be not only to stop the bad guy, but protect as many innocent lives as possible while doing it avoid buildings filled with innocent people getting destroyed.

Looking at that red and blue streek next to the smoke, it looks like Superman is following a missle....that sounds like it would be cool
Commented on 2006-02-21 21:29:58


This is an older SM shot. I hope the ingame has this sort of insane detail where you can tear apart buildings!
Commented on 2006-02-21 21:44:21
Yup, superman did become a midget. Maybe he died and was born again. Damn, even Chuck Norris did.

I'm guessing nothing we've seen is from the 360 version of the game. Of course I'm just guessing maybe it is.

They better not screw up the controls for this game.

No way. Because it's coming from EA.

About the game

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog [url] so cool (19 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog hellblade and ryse both had way more basic combat that literally just centered around weak and strong attacks. there was nothing else there to play around with. (22 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and then you have the boy, who distracts, staggers and sets you up for more volleys. now compare that to hellblade or ryse...and you honestly can't see the difference? (25 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog then you've got the elements associated with the axe itself, where you can freeze enemies (and i assume other elements will be introduced later too) and do powered up elemental attacks (26 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog there seem to be a decent depth to the combat in god of war. with staggers, shield barges, slow mo air juggles, grabs, axe throws, and standard hacking. (27 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: if you think that looks like ryse then i really don't know what to tell you. doesnt look anything like ryse or hellblade to me outside of a camera angle. (29 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @alimokrane: agree, if the enemy variety is there as well it could be an awesome combat system, especially for an over the shoulder camera game. Camera does zoom out for larger fights btw (59 minutes ago)
