The Nerd's Complaints about Superman 64
- Lack of the Superman theme song by John Williams
- Flying through rings. The Nerd states it's like "making a Batman game where all he does is play hopscotch."
- Time limits that leave no margin of error and are unecessary.
- Poor hit detection.
- Broken controls.
- In-game instructions that appear only for a split second.
- Glitches (e.g. Superman gets stuck when flying under a bridge, even though he's nowhere near it.)
- If you miss flying through one ring, sometimes three or more, you have to start all over.
- Failing a task will take you back to a previous mission.
- Awkward attacks.
