This got decent reviews when it was released, but for some reason I couldn't get into it (iPhone version).

A clone of The Hero, which was also by Chillingo if i remember correctly. Superman's a decent game, as was The Hero.

I liked both titles and enjoyed them.

Yeah, I do remember people saying that it was like The Hero, which I never got. I probably just had too high expectations when this came out. I remember one of the first online reviews calling it one of the best Superman games of all time. I failed to see that.

It's not a bad game by any means though and I'm sure others may find it more enjoyable than I did.

I find the game fun, more so that im a superman fan.

As with graphics, if i remember correctly, there a free ingame download for retina update.

Guess it's kinda hard to tell from those screenshots, but I think it looks pretty dang good. I love the celshading.

Well, always can't resist a good Chillingo game so I bought Superman HD, even though the graphics didn't look too good in youtube videos.

Well, it is definately not ipad retina, and the graphics are poor, and there is no upgrade in the hd version to get ipad retina.

BUT, the controls are awesome, the gameplay is fast and fun, and the missions are done remarkedly well.

You do all kind of things, run, fly, punch, laser beams, etc, so this game is a lot of fun. It has an interesting storyline, and the missions are quite diverse and fun.

Would definately recommend this, especially to ipad 2 owners. Wish this was new ipad retina, but anyway, the game is very good. Would recommend it to you all, and the file sizr is not too big which is a plus.

So, is this game best played on iPad or iPhone? I usually find the iPad too bulky for playing games with virtual controls, but if it's a superior version I might reconsider...
