    Seems really fun. I spent more time throwing cars in the air and catching them. The actual gameplay seemed like your typical beat em up though. I didn't feel so super only being able to throw robots 10 feet where I could chuck cars 500 feet into the air.

    Well this game is awful. Not Superman64 awful, but it's still really bad. The graphics are just bad, with a terribley jumpy frame rate. The sound and music are boring. The voice acting is laughable and horribly integrated. The controls are awkward at best, with terrible button placement. The flying mechanics are weak. There's no sense of realism or life to the city at all. Don't waste your time o nthis download and definately don't give EA any money for this trash. That's 3 terrible EA created DC movie games in a row that were completely worthless.

    So EA crappy licence strikes again?

    Dammit, I was looking forward to this, I really wanted to go round flying through buildings and stuff. You know, abusing all those super powers.

    Having said that though, I'm not totally surprised, I mean the DS version has no official screenshots ANYWHERE, no previews or reviews and the only footage I've seen is on youtube, filmed by someone who probably downloaded it.

    And it looked poop.

    To me the demo is worth downloading. Buying the actuall game? Not so much.

    It is fun to fly around, blown cars up and stuff. It's one of the more fun demos I've downloaded in a while. For a full game, it feels unfinished and would grow quite boring and frustrating.

    I didn't check today, but last night the demo was un able to be downloaded cause I have silver membership. Said I had to wait a few days. I was mad at first, but after reading what Joe said, not so much. I will download it, but doubt I will buy it.

    It was fun to fly around. chuck cars and drop people off on top of buildings. It seems like they just built it over Spiderman 2. The actual gameplay is your typical 3rd person beat them up, Superman doesnt seem so super while he fights.

    I like how the game doesn't look like any of the screens EA released. And the fast flying doesnt seem very fast.
