Going to download this, but looks like another IB esque game.
Dang, I was hoping for an open world superman game.

That's what I was looking forward to as well. I'm a bit disappointed to see that Gameloft didn't handle this one: say what you will about the shortcomings of their latest movie adaptations, but you can't call TASM and TDKR unambitious . Oh well...

Apparently this game is going to be available June 14th, and it will feature a story mode that will go through the events of the movie.

Power Rangers Samurai sucks too much in the visuals department, in all the IB-esque games. I do agree this is one of the worst though. Arkham City Lockdown looked really fantastic.

As for me, im looking forward to this, coz im a huge superman fan, and a huge IB-esque game fan. A win-win in my case.

Admittedly, I have to agree with the poster commenting about Gameloft handling this game... I think I would've preferred them handling this property over Phospher at this point in time. I too have to agree that I have been disappointed with phosphors releases lately and just from my impressions of the video this game doesn't look very interesting or something that I would pick up despite being very interested in the Man of Steel and games around that license. This looks about as bland, gameplay wise, as World War Z. Perhaps soulless is the word I am looking for.

Man, this looks, ugh, I mean, I've been away from iOS gaming for around 6 months or more and there are still games trying to capitalize on IB's esque gameplay?

Plus, Superman wearing the armor? At least some classic Supes outfits would've made this game a little more interesting.

Waiting for: ZOMBOX!!!Forgotten Memories, Diesel Tactics, The Wild.

1st thing I thought as well

Every model of reality has margins where it begins to run out of explanatory steam, where we can see its problems and limitations

Well, i actually like more games similar to IB, but Superman is the least of those i thought that would or should.

Nonetheless, $5 for fanboy reasons is still pretty cheap as my toy collection isnt as interactive as an iOS game.

With regards to Superman with differnt costumes, they shouldve just gotten licenses to use Steel, Cyborg, Superboy, Eradicator, the capeless black costume, Red Son Superman, the blue costume... or even Bizarro, or just plain Battle-worn Clark Kent.
