The multi-layered storyline, co-written with DC Comics and complimented with a full orchestral soundtrack, follows Superman through a series of desperate-yet-heroic battles with a variety of well known super-villains, including the assassin Metallo, armed with the latest range of Hi-Tech weaponry of Apokoliptian origin. The player will need to harness the powers of Superman and make tactical, situation-sensitive decisions as to which power and course of action is most suitable.
In one level of the game Superman faces disaster at Luthor Dam and needs to prioritise and act upon a series of deadly attacks by robotic-killers. Does he rescue Lois Lane from the dangling cable car, or should he rush to the dam face and repair the fast appearing cracks caused by an explosion? Should he take out the jetpack robots before they threaten the hospital area or should he save the civilians trapped by fire?
Having a choice of how to solve each life-threatening situation further enhances gameplay for the players. Deciding to save the civilians trapped by fire, Superman can rescue each one individually or use the environment to create makeshift bridges. Does he take out the robots individually from a distance using his heat vision, fly directly to them and use his SuperPunch or even use his Superbreath to blow them away? The choice is the players.
