Why has it took so long to dive into different aspects of spider-man? Why did it take so long to put carnage back into a game? Why is spider-man stupid comments get worse? Ask yourself this as you have fun playing this game.
I love superhero games and have played many that are mediocre at best. The game is better, but it still have some serious shortcomings. Shattered Dimensions' story has absolutely no depth. Some unknown artifact is shattered and its your job to find them. The levels and bosses you fight...hmmm....how do they relate to the game and story, no idea. Maybe you figure that out later on, but I can't finish the game do to the frustrating parts of the game. Graphics are good, but the thing that I didn't care about were the boss fights which at times are frustrating and sometimes difficult to figure out how to kill the boss. The camera can be frustrating as well, especially when crawling on the walls. Targeting objects can be frustrating, especially during boss fights. The RPG element of the game is a good first effort, but is all tied to the progression you make in the game. You get points, moves and upgrades that unlock as your progress through the game. Interesting concept, but does not add anything to the game. Worth a rent, but I do not recommend a purchase. Gamefly saved me $60!
So I was very excited when I heard about this game and even the reviews looked promising. For about the first hour or so it is really fun switching between the different spideys but after about the 3rd or 4th boss I said to myself is this really all the game is, every single level is literally the same thing.. Chase down boss and fight him once.. Kill a few enemies rescue some workers, ( which you have to do every frickin time and is so annoying) fight the boss again and poof that's it. The combos are impressive but not nearly enough to make me want to finish this game. Rent but DO NOT BUY!!
