When I first got Spiderman 3 I was excited, I couldn't wait to swing through the streets using the Wiimote. My first reaction was that the controls were extremely hard to use, but after a little while it got easier. I could talk about how the graphics are not the greatest, I'm not sure about you but I didn't buy the Wii for it's graphics. The main story is extremely quick, I don't play game a whole lot but it only lasted 5 hours and by that time I was bored with it. I didn't even bother to fight all the gangs or find all the hidden treasurers. Bottom line if your on a 2+ game plan it's a decent rent. If your on a 1 game plan don't bother unless there is no other game you want.
This is a fun game, but it can get a little repetitive. As with any superhero game you have to beat multiple bosses including Lizard, Kraven, Sandman, and Venom; as well as their various minions. Using the black suit is neat as it increases your strength and provides a much deadlier set of moves, but if you use it to much, it will knock you out. Also the more you use it, or as you get into the later parts of the game, it will be increasingly difficult to remove the suit. I know it sounds strange, but to remove it, you have to perform an increasingly difficult set of movements, your time to react will decrease as well. New moves are bought using using experience point, which are gained through defeating enemies, but this is a very slow approach. The best way is to complete missions, as this gives you a whole point. New moves range in price from one point, to ten points. This game is not that hard for any moderately experienced gamer. It took me only four or five hours according to the in game timer. Probably the hardest thing to get used to is swinging around the city, because in order to do so, you have to mirror Spidey's usual swinging arm movement. You are given a camera to use to take pictures of all your enemies, (not sure what for though). The game essentially follows the movies events. After that the majority of the game is trying to defeat New York's toughest gangs. I hope this review helps.
