Bad

total failure

As an avid spiderman fan and one who has played all of the other games, I must say that this game was a major let down. Now there are some things that u get to do in this game that u didnt in previous games but, it lacks some of the most basic things that make spiderman who he is. in each level u do the same thing, badguy has peice of slab chase him down, kick his butt take it back. The game wasnt a total failure, u do get to pull of some pretty cool combos and the player design of some of the bosses is awesome. But over all if u try to compare this game to any other game like Arkham Asylum ur going to be very diappointed. Im not going to lie, Im not a batman fan in the slightest but that was an awesome game. this one however gets an ok at best. I wish I would have rented instead of bought. but its to late, the damage has been done so o well. As I have stated before there are some highlights in the game. the story line being a major point. Also the spiderman noir version is probably the best demiension and in my opinion could stand on its own as a seperate game. it was an intresting look at nother side of our hero. I said before that the game is missing things that make our hero so cool these things are as follows: you either fight on rooftops or one ground not both, why cant u do like in web of shadows where some of ur best fights happen on the side of buildings? the web swinging just flat out sucked so does the web zip as well. Again most of the areas u fight in are large enough so that u should be bouncin of the walls instead u have to struggle to get a good swing. Spiderman is all about speed agility and acrobatics, its like when they made this game the just settled for the least amount of these aspects. compare this game to others at ur own risk but know that this game had potential and they screwed it up big time. fun to play, bad to buy. In my opinion a real spiderman game was and always will be web of shadows. If u havent played it ur missing out.

Fair

good concept, clumsy implementation

The graphics are fantastic, the combat is frenetic and fun, the character upgrade system is based off the of the popular Devil May Cry model, with an innovative twist.

However, the controls are clumsy and the boss fights are poorly designed. What must be accomplished in each fight is usually clear, but the controls make the fight significantly more difficult than is necessary. In essence, the controls themselves become an obstacle in the boss fight.

Another month of polish on the controls and targeting (as well as the irksome camera) would have made this an 8 easily.

Overall, it's a disappointment.

this game is a great game the plot and thoery behind this game make for a compelling game. but the camera controls and limnitations they put you in and surrounding leave something to be desired. the sandman final battle really perpetuaties all this with me having barely been able to see where i needed to go and how bad it was. i got frustrated ready to rage haha. but this gbame needs improvements but like where it was trying to go
