well the reason I like the game because of the legendary voice actors of spider-man animated such Josh Keaton from spectacular spider-man & Christopher Daniel Barnes form spider-man the animated series thats why i liked the game.
Pretty cool story, not deep or anything. There's a scientist who's name is Walker Sloan (voiced by Val Kilmer!) who has warped time so that he could control the planet in order to save it from itself, makes sense to me! Peter Parker and Miguel O'Hara (2099 Spidey) have to work together in each of their time-lines to reverse it. Miguel has used Peter's DNA so that they can speak to each other in their own time-lines. The game explains it better than i do of course. There was a twist i never expected and it was dang cool, i think just to see that twist is worth playing the game. That's not to say it's the only good thing about it tho!
The combat was very nice, easy to control and a whole ton of fun. Lots of crazy cool combo's and really kick-butt special abilities and upgrades which you unlock as you progress through the game. Miguel can plop down a decoy for enemies to attack while he smashes their faces in. Peter can toss out a huge web that captures all the enemies in front of him for a couple of seconds to smash up. Those were my favorite abilities, there's plenty more.
Overall it's a simple beat-em up that you can pretty much get through with just mashing the same combo. Don't get me wrong tho, you use the same combo the whole time but you can't just spam it without getting hurt, you still need to play smart. The combo's were long and easily combined with other moves and they just looked super cool. I always felt like a total butt kicker even tho sometimes i did get my butt kicked if i tried to take on too many difficult enemies at one time head on.
The bosses rocked! The final boss being the best of all. It's too bad there weren't more tho. There's only three that i can remember. I guess that makes sense tho since there's only three chapters in the game. I would love to tell you more about the bosses but since there's so few i don't want to spoil them. That being said, i didn't think the game felt too short nor did it feel too long, it was good.

I have really enjoyed the past Spiderman games, but this one was nothing short of disappointing to me. The controls felt overly complicated. The accuracy of aiming and swinging are terrible. The fighting system seemed lacking. If you are a die hard Spiderman fan then give it a try. Otherwise you might be like me and send it back after a day.
