WHY SPIDER-MAN?!

I am a HUGE spidey fan, and believe me when I say that this game is terrible. Why? First off, why would you make the ULTIMATE version of GREEN GOBLIN playable instead of the original? You are basically playing the hulk with devil horns versus playing one of spider-man's greatest foes. The graphics are mediocre at best, the plot is not good, the bosses are all easy and boring, and once again the entire universe in this game is the 'ultimates' universe, and if you have not read the comics then believe me when I say that the ultimates universe is the worst part of spidey in spider-man history. I did like ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN on the ds though, bust mostly because venom was playable and spider-man did have decent abilities. This game is a giant leap backwards from that title, a boring - bland - piece of junk for loving fans of spider-man everywhere. Do not rent this, try ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN on the DS or SPIDER-MAN 2 (the movie game) for the DS instead. Both are solid platformers, this is solid garbage. F.

Not nearly as good as previous spiderman games. I recommend spiderman or spiderman II if you are in the mood for spiderman action.

Weak

Repetitive

I really wasn't expecting a linear side-scroller. The first level is kind of fun, but the subsequent levels i played had the same basic purpose. Go destroy some stuff as Green Goblin, then go save some people as Spider-Man, and then battle the Green Goblin. I wanted it to be fun, but it just felt very familiar, repetitive, and unoriginal.
