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.
