.hack//G.U. Vol. 3: Redemption
Stars indicate the most critically-acclaimed games.
True to the fiction in every respect, this is the game based on the Superman universe that fans have been anticipating for decades. From excited citizens to the traffic on the streets, every detail of this vibrant city has a mind of its own. These 80 square miles are brought to life for the first time in a videogame. Go anywhere and do anything in Metropolis as Superman. Non-linear gameplay allows you to explore and play the game exactly how you want to at your own pace. Where and how you fly – to the top of skyscrapers, dodging elevated trains – is completely up to you, since gameplay is designed as a true open world experience. With notorious villains like Metallo and colossal challenges only Superman can overcome, you must navigate the Man of Steel to monitor and protect Metropolis from destruction. Three distinct types of gameplay — Flying, Rescue, and Combat — will keep the action constant and the challenges relentless. Play both film-inspired missions as well as original content created exclusively for the videogame. Graphics, sound, and gameplay have been taken to the next level to create a Metropolis like you've never seen it, with three dimensional sound, a complete orchestra soundtrack, and Oscar-wining sound designer.

The targeting system sucks, often sticking to the enemy you just knocked down (and therefore can't attack until he gets up again) while another is bashing you in the back. The final aggravation is the camera, which constantly gets stuck on things in the environment, so you can't always see your foe.
It's the repetition that really hurts: completing the same tasks and fighting the same bad guys in order to progress through the game gets tedious. [Jan. 2007, p.85]

Superman may have returned, but on this evidence he can bugger off again. Disappointing. [Jan 2007, p.70]

Repetitive and dull. It seems that spin-off games are as effective as Kryptonite when it comes to bringing down Superman. [Christmas 2006, p.66]
Games Master UK
A super-sized disappointment. [Jan 2007, p.79]
This is a shoddy mess that only manages to impress when you're flying far above the city of Metropolis, thanks to its scale and speed. But you should really take our advice and fly far away from this trash. [Issue # 149, p.80]
Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
No matter how good some of the game concepts are, the mere fact that a basic element such as the main villain not even deigning to make an in-game appearance, among other things, demonstrates that the Superman curse is alive and well. [Jan. 2007, p.84]
