Both SPIDER-MAN 1 and 2 translated to great Nintendo DS platforming games, but this one is much better. Like Parker, you have a choice - in what you want to do. You literally get to web around the city deciding where to go/what missions or bosses to do, and it is incredible. This is a great platforming game with insanely good visuals and great cutscenes. The controls are entirely new, you use the touch screen for literally everything (the buttons/d pad are used for up down left and right depending if you're left or right handed), and the controls honestly own. This does not feel like a rushed handheld version of a console game, you can tell the developers took some time for this version, and trust me you will appreciate both the gameplay and the stunning graphics. A +. Great GREAT movie-game.

this game is sucky. i seem to be in a pattern with games lately that suck, i dont get out of the first level. why must the spider be controled with the stylus? it only makes it tuffer for players. this game was weak. stay off it, im dissapointed in it.

Nothing spectacular, but a good time waster

A friend of mine gave me Spiderman 3 a few days after it came out, having already beaten the stuffing out of it. Spiderman 3 is not the most dynamic or engaging video game ever, but it seems to take the formulas of the Spiderman + X-Men and Spiderman and Venom Super NES games and dumb them down. The game isn't hard, and the few difficult parts are spread apart enough to keep you from going crazy (although getting the hang of the race missions is a pain). If you go through DS games fast and want a simple beat-em-up platformer, this is worth a look. Bouncing around as Spiderman (especially in the black suit) is simple and fun.

Vicarious Visions have been making Spidey games for the DS from the day it was launched 2 1/2 years ago, with Spidey 2, and it seemed more to bring on a 3d aspect to the game, and not to make huge use of the touch screen. Spidey has reached his 4th outing on the DS, and it seems like they squeezed a little something special into the game. Now, lets first focus on the combat, a real great aspect of the game. This games combat system is completely touch base, leaving you to do punches and sling webs on the bottom screen, and see them blow-out on the top. Now, you might think this is an easy rollercoaster to lose it, but unlike its console versions, it works very well. It starts with a bit of a learning curve for about 10 minutes, but sooner or later you'll be doing combos and slinging web rodeos like a pro. Now as i said, Spidey 2 on the DS focused on a very 3d aspect to the game, with the 2.5d style, well for the good news is that the 2.5d style is back, and a lot better. Even though you won't be seeing 3d cutscenes, which are replaced with comic stills, it looks a lot smoother. Now, lets get to the bad aspects. Unlike its console versions, Manhattan is pretty small, and a lot of the level design is pretty straightforward, with a little bit of side-pockets. Plus, just like a lot of movie games are, its pretty short. In fact so short, that getting 100% completion isn't that hard. And also, if your getting the game just to see what happens, don't be so smart. The games plot is pretty losely based, and the ending is pretty underwhelming compared to the movie. Now, overall, Spidey 3 on the DS is not terrible, and not even close to that in my opinion, but it seems as though they really focused mainly on gameplay and graphics over the quantity of the actual game. I do believe you should rent it, and just maybe think about buying it, but theres very little chance you'll actually come back to it after you beat it.
