It's a crutch, when reviewing videogames that belong to a series, to simply compare one game to the next. Reviews of that type are often extremely formulaic—the graphics have improved, and the controls are tighter, but the story isn't as good... etc... It's a boring review to read, kind of a dull one to write.

I can't imagine it's an especially easy task, making a Superman-themed game. There's never been a great Superman game, though, so without any ideas to appropriate, each and every time a new Superman game is crafted the developers are starting from scratch, with a daunting task ahead of them.

For a good long while I was looking for the right compound word to use to describe this game. After consulting with my friends and family, town elders, and unnameable things that live in the outer walls of a madman’s imagination, I settled on one: Review-Proof. Battlefield 2142
is made for people who played Battlefield 2,
which was made for people who played the Desert Combat
mod for Battlefield 1942,
