At one point in time, there were some good superhero based video games. The beginning of the genre was a little rough, but there were several gems that followed in the 8 and 16-bit eras. It seemed to be when the games attempted to go 3D that these titles suffered their greatest failures. There were movie tie-ins like the disastrous Catwoman (2004 PS2/Xbox) game, attempts to promote other Justice League members such as Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis (2003 GameCube/Xbox), and the notoriously bad Superman 64 (1999 N64) that all fell in a dark time for comic based games. Not even DC’s poster boy for video games, The Dark Knight himself, was safe from several bombs.
