Dont buy this game if your expecting to have a free roam like spider man 1-3 the graphic are more terrible than Borderlands the action and swinging in the game are fun but thats it, some of the spiderman are really hard to use so don't to rent this game cause it well be a waste of time.
Since I played web of shadows, which was a pretty good game, I was expecting a LOT. Especially for 50 bucks. What I got was horrible graphics, terrible controls, and a lame storyline. Like I said, Web of Shadows was a pretty good game. So I was shocked, when I noticed the HUGE difference in quality. For one thing, if you went back 6 years or so, then graphics like that would be acceptable. The controls were also bad. For doing a web swing, and a web pull to pull youself onto mounts, you use the same thing, the Right Trigger. Well when I was trying to web pull myself, it would mistake it for me trying to swing. This gets annoying if enemies are shooting at you. I may have been able to ignore this if you were able to crawl up the web while you were swinging like in Web of Shadows. It does indeed have a terrible storyline. It just seemed to rushed, like a book that dives straight into the problem. In Web of Shadows, it took a while for the symbiotes to form and for all the trouble to begin, except in this game, you dive straight into action combat. Basicly all you're doing in the storyline is beating up bad guys, and collecting their pieces of a tablet that was broken. I honestly prefer the older games were ther is only ONE spiderman, and I loved the setting and the openness of the city, and the fact that you had that whole city to "play" around in. But in this game you're confined in the "layers" of the villians. Totally dissapointed, and like someone stated, it was so bad, that I quit after 20 min. of game play. While some people might think that I didn't give it a fair chance, consider that that was 20 minutes of my life wasted. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!
when i got this game i thought "well this is another spider man game this should be typical boring spider man like the 2 thousand others i've played
well this game does have some good features namely the 2099 spider man ( most of the spider man games i have played never even mention him) however that is the only thing good about this game
gameplay is monotonous without much challenge and the wall crawling has a major flaw mentioned in video reviews of this game which is when wall crawling you want to see what's below you so you know what you are avoiding unfortunately this does not happen at all so you are guestimating alot and well you die alot
in short if thinking of renting this game don't bother...find something better this game is not worth the effort under any circumstances
