I'm not sure why people complained about this game or said it was a bad game. It was a straight forward Spider-man game. It wasn't a long game, but the story was interesting, the voice acting was GREAT, and it made you want to keep moving forward. All and all a good game, not open environment like some others, but the story wasn't for that.

Having played Shattered Dimensions, I had high hopes for this title. Because I played Shattered Dimensions, I was slightly disappointed with it. The opening cut-scene from the start menu was a neat touch and drew me in immediately, but as the game progressed my adrenaline gradually died down. The game play is alright. You play as two versions of our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man: Amazing and 2099, Amazing taking place in our time, and 2099 taking place in the future. The two Spiders play very similarly with only small differences being level design and attacks. Objectives are very limited in the game however, consisting of brawling with endless waves of goons appearing out of thin air, and collecting keys, which are held by goons that appear out of thin air. The levels consist of narrow halls, and "futuristic" labs and such. For those who played SD, 2099's sky diving mini game is back and appears a lot. Like, a lot a lot. It's not open world; very linear. The voice acting is a major positive and the graphics are decent, however the style presented in SD appealed to me more so.
The story is pretty straight forward. A head scientist in 2099 attempts to rewrite history and screw with the current time line, and Amazing's. Future Spidey has a beef with this and devotes himself to foiling this plot. The scientist succeeds and 2099 Spider-man must recruit the Spidey of the past to correct the time-lines.
Major villains that are featured include Anti-venom, Black Cat (for some reason), the new Atrocity, and the final boss who I won't reveal (it'd be a major spoiler if I did.)
All in all, it's by all means worth a rent, but don't buy it, because once you beat it( took me less than 10 hours), there's virtually no replay value.

I have to admit that this was the worst Spider-man video game that I have ever played! The whole game consisted of battling about 14 versions of a generic template foot soldier. And Atrocity?! Don't even get me started...the game had such promise with it's story and it just didn't flow. The ending of the game (if you can call it that) left many more questions than answers. And I don't see this game ever getting a sequel to answer them...
