Top 25 Worst Comic Book Video Games

1. Superman 64 (Nintendo 64)

Superman 64 will forever be known as the kryptonite of the game industry. It's just so pitifully awful on so many levels, we don't even know where to begin. Unresponsive flying controls, horrendous graphics, atrocious audio and lame missions (let's fly through some more rings) had us ready to chuck the cartridge into a wall. For shame, Superman.–Robert Workman

    Hahaha, as much as the original NES TMNT game was really difficult (I HATE the river level pictured, stupid almost unavoidable electric deadly seaweed WITH a time limit... 'nuff said), you can't help but crack up whenever one of those Foot Tanks runs you over (-gape at screen- ...hahahahaha) or when you walk off the screen after killing a bunch of enemies and go back to the same screen only to be quickly pummeled to death by the much harder enemies that regenerated in the same spot. You're right about the arcade game though, that one rox (both the NES version which I have, and the original arcade version).

    I think this game was all about old school. As for intense the legendary game Mortal Kombat. This game may not be as gruesome, but yet leave a sense of the game, Just leave the game alone, and give it up for how much bat-man has really made it. Look at the "DARK ***HT" -Cheers XxRALxX Currently listening to Stick To Your Guns: Our Demise

    You're forgetting that half of the games on this list were SNES or a similar platform. At that time, graphics weren't good, it was a friggin 16-bit graphics style. They were good for the time. And I'm pretty sure motion capture wasn't exactly heard of at the time either.

    I disagree with some games on here. Batman Forever, for just one example. The graphics were great for it's time, it had good level design (you get "lost" if you're a noob), and I loved the gameplay. It had multiple gadgets that made the game interesting, and it was challenging without being extremely difficult. There were many features that were great for its time, like the battle simulator. This review is EXTREMELY BIASED. Find a better writer that doesn't give the same 3 reasons why he doesn't like every pre-2008 game. "Oh, the graphics are lame. The gameplay is old. The controls are so bad you can't even shoot/punch/aim. Hur hur hur."

    The problem with the person that wrote this article is the same problem with most people who review also movies, they have no clue. a game written for an 8 bit system has to be reviewed on an 8bit system or 16 bit or 64 bit, etc. It would be like me playing my atari on a 65" 1080p high definition tv or playing my xbox 360 on a black and white tv. Its like compare a burger king or mcdonald's hamburger to a red robin or jack in the box or fuddrucker's hamburger. Sure they are all hamburgers but come on they are not equal. I wish I could get these hacks jobs.

    superman 64 was so bad i felt like i wasted 3 bucks renting it and i remember that spawn game for psone being awful as well. you guys have to give tmnt a break though it was pretty early on nes and if you compare it to games that were out at that time it wasnt that bad. marvel nemesis was like the same level over and over again. great list

    Super man 64 was THE worst game i have ever played.

  • swnginmoneydaddy on 3/10/2009 3:26 pm

    This article mentions a couple of X-Men games that were a good play for the Sega Genesis. Does anyone remember what they were called? i remember playing one (you start out with your character assuming it's a holographic exercise or something) which, at a certain point in the game, you had to press the reset button to get past a certain point. A frustrating fact that I did not know at the time. I really want to go back and beat that stupid game. Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated.
