this game is decent. its the same standard gameplay from the previous installments which follows the same idea of exploring the outside environment of a city to fight baddies. (spiderman, ironman, superman, etc) the fighting gets boring quick as with the other games but the web slinging is pretty cool and the graphics are up to par. the missions are super cheesy and theirs not enough in game movies to enhance the storyline. rent it if your a fan. skip it if your not.

To be honest, I only spent about two hours or so on this title. At first, it was really fun (Bruce Campbell makes a amusing narrator and tutorial instructor), and the graphics really grabbed me as I swung about the city. Then I started getting into the game, noting the poor camera controls, the odd glitch of two vehicles occupying the same space, and the buggy responses to control inputs. As I got into combat related missions, this buggy response became more frequent, making the game frustrating to the point that I no longer wanted to play.
I personally didn't think this game is all that other make it out to be. Yes, swinging from buildings is cool... but how long can one enjoy this single aspect of the game. After you learn the controls and fighting style, it becomes so monotonous and repetitive that I sent it back the second day I had the game. This game only gets a 4 from me...
