I feel that the controls are ok, the story is good, and the use of venom,sandman,morbious,sh- reak and superlizzard were awesome.all in all i liked the game but i think so much and i was almost sure you could play as the new goblin. that would have been Awesome. I thought they would because if you beat the game on the hardest difficulty in the first game you could play as green goblin. Instead in this game you can play as venom, who has all the same attacks as spider man.
While the game itself is pretty fun, it is really hard not to notice the extremely underdone graphics. The controls are kind of difficult at first (as with all Wii games) but after a couple of days, it starts to become more natural. The story line is cool and the boss fights are pretty fun (and long), but all of this still does not make up for the graphics. Distant buildings have NO texture, showing flat grey blocks rather than buildings with windows and awnings. Dark areas of the screen are often littered with a white line pattern (much like the matrix code thing but white). I don't know if it is supposed to be there, but it makes the game look really cheesy. Spidey looks awsome, with some of the best use of shadows to make him look 3d that I have ever seen in a spidey game, and bosses look pretty neat, but the common humans running around look like a mix between anime and Mii's....only taller. Not very addictive gameplay, as it is pretty hard to control, but you'll get used to it.
