Trivia

Eric Caen blames Warner Bros. on the game's poor quality, stating Warner Bros. micromanaged the entire production process and license of every single character in the Superman universe. Caen also feels Warner might have been self-sabotaging Titus's work to let the license lapse in hopes to give it to a high profile publisher such as Electronic Arts (EA) who likely would have paid out more for the license.

Superman 64? More like Super-Bad, What a Bore!
29 October 2019 | by OlicosmicSee all my reviews

I didn't think it could be done, but somehow, Titus software did it. They somehow made a full game that's horrible throughout the whole package. What makes that even more weirdly impressive is the fact that this was done in a time where the standards of video gaming were much lower, so for it to be this abysmal even for that is quite the feat. The visuals look blocky and lazily put together, the gameplay is either awkward or fights against you, the game structure is stupid and tedious what with all the tokens you have to find and the rings you have to fly through, the world design is uninspired; same can be said for the stock music and bland UI, and the performance is shockingly really bad at times. All of this makes for an experience that is painful more than it is fun. It is one of, if not the laziest game I've ever played. To add salt to the wounds, every single time you fail (which is 100% guaranteed to happen, since some missions literally don't give you any time to read what to do), you have to do the tedious ring section before it every single time. Not only that, the aforementioned tokens are for your powers, and they WILL deplete if you keep using them. You read that right. The one Superhero that can do pretty much everything is locked behind petty gimmicks that adds nothing, but annoyance to the game. It wouldn't be that bad if they didn't deplete, because that would feel like a nice progression for every token you found. But, NOPE. Everything is temporary, no matter what. You will not be able to be the Superman you want to be, unless your idea of Superman is him not being, oh, I don't know. Super? What doesn't help is the fact that this game doesn't run that well. When you have to do combat against enemies (which isn't fun either), the game can sometimes slow to a crawl, especially if there are a lot on the screen. Sure, there is a way to shrink the screen so that it runs a little better, which also sacrifices visibility, but I have a few questions: How in the name of all that is holy does a game this bad looking and this simple run so bad in the first place? How do games like "Super Mario 64" or "The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time" (both of which came out before this did) run so well on the same console despite being infinitely more complex than this game? There's no excuse for this. Even with emulation, this game simply isn't optimized fully. Not that it matters a whole lot, because nothing about is fun. The only fun that can be had here is showing this to friends just to show them one of the most poor excuses of interactive media on the planet. Even as someone who's not that big of a fan of Superman (I don't dislike him, I just never really read any of his comics yet), I'm insulted. So, if you are, avoid this like the plague, because it takes everything great about the Kryptonian Hero and flushes it down the toilet. This goes for everyone else, too. Save your sanity and your time by playing literally anything else. I wanted to be one of those that found some good in this game, but I simply can't, as there is nothing. Even if you're a fan of the show this game is based off of, none of the charm made its way here in the slightest. Would I say this is the worst game of all time? I don't know, as there are other games that are also deserving of that moniker. Hell, I'm not even sure if there is one game that can be classified as the "worst of all time". However, I can say that this is certainly the worst game from the 5th generation, that's for damn sure. Superman 64? More like Super-Bad, What a Bore!
