    I’m sorry, but who in their right mind would make a game about the stock market and put the title “Superman” on it!!!!

    I’ll tell you who: Dumb-asses!!!

    There is an okay game of superman on the NES…It is…Superman 2!! It was unreleased, but if you go on to Virtualnes.com and go to games, it should be in the unreleased games link. πŸ˜‰

    Kamakazi geek, were you watching this on youtube? Sometimes it loads wrong and ends at the middle, or before the intro song even starts or ends. I think they fixed it recently, but you know.

    Wow…they ruined my childhood hero! IT really goes to show they never ever did a good job on any superman game,ever!! So sad…Long Live the Nerd!!

  • October 13, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    To Kamakazi fuck: the ScrewAttack version seem to be cut off in the end because it misses the part where he tells that the next review will be Superman 64.

    I also love Superman. If it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t have had the superhero genre.

    I played some of the Atari game online a short time ago, and I found it just as confusing as you have, James.

    Acording to the select menu, the Roman # 2 powers up Supes super-breath.

    I still find that Death Star bit in Simon’s Quest baffling.

    I recognize the camera shots where we see the Nerd in the Superman episodes where he talks to the viewers. It the same place where he made the response video for the Nostalgia Critic.

    Man…. did I ever regret renting that game once for the weekend, I still wonder why the Famicom version had the Superman theme but not that piece of crapola on the NES; at least there were some good Superman games: the Taito arcade game (loved it) and Sunsoft’s The Death and Return of Superman (nice Final Fight style game but I can’t pick a Superman of my choice). The Nerd should have reviewed the Genesis Superman game from 1993, damn! I really needed my Game Genie to beat that darn game and this wouldmake him flip out too.

    when i was a kid the only reason why i played this game was because i was amazed how high clark can jump…. jump higher then mario…

    Oh, and didn’t the Statue of Liberty on there look like something taken off of Maple Story? I say YES!!!

    Did That episode end prematurely? he threw the game out the window then it apeared as if he was going to go into a signature AVGN rant but then it just cutt off.

    I think the message “don’t look into the death star, or you will die” may be a reference to Buronson’s anime and manga “Hokuto no Ken” (Fist of the North Star); seeing the “death star” or “star of death” in the sky near the Ursa Major constellation was an omen of premature death for many major characters.

    I actually got to the part where you get to fight people. I HAD NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAT WEEKEND! LOL. You think the flying is glitchy? Play the parking lot level.

    Not surprised at all by how many requests there were to review this game. I believe in an issue of Nintendo Power they admit to it being their worst game,

    Stocks? Realy? I remember going to math class once and the teacher has us trading stocks with each other using skittles as money. Being the idiots we were, my class and I got nothing out of it except a chance to eat candy in class.

    Thank god the new super man was free roam. I want to fly around the city instead of fucking investigating the fucking stock market.

    “What are you kidding me? He’s Superman! He has to buy a fucking TICKET?!?!” That’s one of my favorite AVGN quotes ever.

    Great video, but you should have talked about the good ones too, there were a few nice beat’em ups for the SNES, one of them was really fucking hard, but still enjoyable. The death of superman if i remember.

    7:30 It also was the year of people talking make no sense in politics. Too bad only videogames corrected that fatal flaw.

    I’ve noticed that in his nightmare on elm street review, he says “throwing it out the window isn’t creative enough” and what does he do here? Drops a game out the damn window! what a lying son of a bitch (just kidding, I love the Nerd)

    Did anyone else notice at one point after he was done with the subway he talked to some guy when he was Clark. But the guy said “Hi, Superman”. What the hell?!

    I would like it if the Superman games had their own theme rather than the John Williams one there, James. Also, I admit the games are crap too.

    “I never heard of a game where down goes through the door.”

    You never heard of Blaster Master? Wow, that’s fucking sad, man.

    TheZod Gang girl looks like Wonder Woman in yellow/

    looking forward to superman 64! lol

  • June 17, 2013 at 7:15 am

    I love the part where he’s imitating the music in the game. “di-di di-di di-di di di-di-di-di-di!” I crack up every single time. πŸ˜€

  • December 4, 2013 at 6:41 am

    On top of the Statue of Liberty talking, it’s an anime chibi version.

  • December 4, 2013 at 6:44 am

    I do not approve of Chibi Superman, even though if it wasn’t an NES game e would be so cute. Does that sound wrong?

  • December 18, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    I have superman 64 but never played it my N64 is dead

  • Aaron1375

    June 23, 2014 at 5:03 am

    I won the NES Superman, I kind of enjoyed it. It was odd though they referred to that girl as Zod gang, especially because at the end you encounter all three from Superman II.

  • October 2, 2014 at 5:28 am

    Have you played Death and Return of Superman for SNES or Genesis? That’s probably the only good Superman game.

      Rocksteady needs to make a awesome Superman game and it will blow these crappy games out of the water.

    Wow, Myspace. That’s taking it back to the past.

    We need an awesome Superman game on the PS4 & Xbox One with the help of Rocksteady Studios (who made the Batman Arkham trilogy & before that, they made Urban Chaos Riot Response), who’s with me?
