None that I can remember. The original Xbox Superman game was Meh. And Superman Returns was terrible.

I've heard Superman 64 is good.

The arcade game was fun...then again, i was like 7, so i may have just been excited that i was playing Superman.

While Superman Returns was ehh, I'd certainly call it the best effort (as far as translating the 'Superman' experience goes). Death of Superman was a pretty good beat 'em up as well.

I can't ever see him being in his own game. He's just too god damn POWERFUL. I mean, Hulk has limitless strength, but he can't vaporize the planet by looking at it so you get Ultimate Destruction.

Superman has to be nerfed just to be in a videogame and then when he gets his own titles, he can't do sweet fuck all and it sucks.

If I remember correctly, Shadow of Apokolips was....decent. And I remember the actual controls for Superman Returns being really good, but then they didn't give you anything particularly fun to do, so the only real enjoyment I got out of it was just flying around the city.

I don't think you'd ever be able to pull off a traditional action game with Superman, because as Funky already pointed out, he's ridiculously powerful and there are only a handful of things that could actually hurt him. You'd have to do things on a scale that I don't think has been done before in gaming yet, that may not be impossible but at the very least incredibly damn difficult for console hardware to handle.

I actually spent a good while trying to think of how to pull off a good Superman game, but I'll spare you the Kalyx-style essay and say that while I think it is entirely possible to make a really good one, it'd still be really fucking hard to pull off.

Shadow of Apokolips wasn't that bad.
