* AWinnerIsYou: After hours of ring stages and other nonsense, you're treated to an incessantly zooming and un-zooming shot of Superman and his friends standing outside the portal (in a manner suspiciously similar to the intro scene) and the text [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQ2UzTpXfpU&feature=youtu.be&t=1h53m52s "Well done, you managed to get your friends out of this nightmare... But in the real world, Lex is still there."]]

Added DiffLines:

* BlindIdiotTranslation: Some of the text seems to suffer from this, creating obtuse-sounding lines like "It was cold but thank you, Superman!" and [[spoiler:"In the real world, Lex is still there."]]


Added DiffLines:

* HarmlessFreezing: Happens to Jimmy, though with the... minimalistic graphics it's a little hard to tell it's ice, until Jimmy mentions being cold.

* AdaptationalWimp: ''ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}'', of all characters, is given this treatment. He's working for (not "with", ''for'') SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor, gets beaten by Superman with astonishing ease, and ends up being locked in a prison meant for ordinary humans.

Added DiffLines:

* VoodooShark: The tie-in comic book explains that the reason Lex Luthor somehow has Darkseid under his control is because Brainiac, who helped Lex create the virtual world, managed to overpower and capture Darkseid thanks to his "technological superiority." The comic does not, however, explain why Brainiac doesn't just [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim beat Superman himself]] if he is perfectly capable of taking on someone who's ''stronger'' than Superman.

** The game is notorious for its unbelievable abuse of PassThroughTheRings, but that only covers the odd number levels, or "Ride Stages." What follows afterwards is a set of ridiculously cramped buildings with simply painful fighting mechanics.

Added DiffLines:

** Playing through the entire game, only for the game to cut off and force you to start over from the first level on a harder difficulty if you want to see the ending.
** The game is riddled with bugs, but the final level contains a puzzle that is so badly glitched you'll frequently just drop dead for no reason.

Added DiffLines:

** It's also extremely easy to fly through walls outside the borders of the level and have the same problem- though it sometimes ''is'' possible to fly back through a wall.

The player assumes the role of Superman and is challenged to complete puzzle obstacles throughout the game; usually levels contain similar challenges. In many levels, [[PassThroughTheRings Superman flies through a series of rings within a time limit]] (unless the player chooses to play the game on an easy difficulty; the rings then disappear but the timer remains the same). The "virtual Metropolis" is filled with what the [[HandWave developers called "Kryptonite fog"]] (which was actually the game's inability to render anything more than 10 feet away without being choppier than it already is), supposedly there to slow him down. Other levels feature Superman moving through buildings fighting various enemies and going out of his way to [[ChronicHeroSyndrome protect the virtual world's inhabitants.]] Oh, and every ring-based level is a TimedMission too.
