Death and Return of Superman
It's time to become the greatest superhero of all time. In the Death and Return of Superman play as Superman and progress through two levels to get to your final showdown with Doomsday. Throughout the rest of the game play as the Superman upstarts: the Cyborg, the Eradicator, Superboy and the Man of Steel. Unfortunately, this game lacks originality. On each level you meet only the same three bad guys over and over again. Some of the enemies you'll even see on more than one level! Their names and colors might change, but they are still the same enemy. The levels seem repetitious as well, because they are all laid out in the same fashion. The control is only adequate, and the same goes for the sound. If you like side-scrolling, beat-'em-up games like Final Fight, however, you will probably enjoy this title. There are lots of enemies which, even though they look the same, make the game a challenge.

Relive the most shocking event in comic-book history as you fight an underworld of mutants and thugs in The Death and Return of Superman from Sunsoft. You begin the game as Superman, battling Doomsday and his band of cretins. But no matter how well you fight, Doomsday lands a lethal blow. In Superman's absence, four impostors appear, each with Superman-like qualities and devastating moves. Playing as multiple superheroes is cool, but the punch-and-walk action gets a little repetitious.
