I wasnt quite sure of what to expect going into Shattered Dimensions. I was a big fan of Spiderman 2 when i was kid, and got a kick out of just swinging around the city.
The first thing i noticed was the mission structure. Shattered Dimensions is not an open world game, but rather a level based spiderman game. I didnt mind this since most of the levels are well made and interesting. Each level is completely self contained and takes about 35-50 minutes to complete, bringing the game to be around 12 hours long. Each level contains a boss fight, which are hit or miss.
The main gimmick of the game is being able to play as 4 different spidermans. Noir spiderman is the most interesting since the gameplay is based around stealth. 2099 spiderman is the weakest portion of the game in my opinion since its plagued with annoying "falling sequences" that drag on, and weak boss fights. Amazing and Ultimate spiderman levels are also extremely enjoyable, and offer the most "normal" spiderman gameplay.
The lack of freedom may not sit well with some players, but if you dont mind a more "on rails" spiderman experience, check out Spiderman Shattered Dimensions.

I'm a Spider-Man fan, and this game was a bit of a disappointment. At first, I wasn't really sure what to expect. I've played other Spider-man games, but this one was a bit different. I liked the idea of playing as the alternate Spider-mans...men Spider-men... The controls were radically different, but easy to get the hang of. The levels were all pretty simple, fight bad guys to get to the super-villain to get the shard. The Spider-Man Noir levels, were different, because they invloved stealth, and this is my least favorite part of the game, I loved the idea of having to be stealthy, it just wasn't done too well. The camera is a major pain in the neck, I can never point it to where I want, sometimes the enemies spot me, even when I am in complete darkness, and it's hard to get to the spots you want to sometimes. The web zip in this game is ¦¦¦¦ , when you're looking around there will be a yellow arrow pointing to a spot where you can press RT to web zip, but it just points wherever it wants. even if I'm looking right at where I want to go and I have it in the center of the screen and I'm in reasonable distance to be able to web zip there, the arrow will most often be pointing somewhere else or even off the screen. Another big problem is the targeting system. On the level with Sandman, all the thugs and made of sand and you can only defeat them if they're wet, so there's barrels of water and water valves all over the place you have to use to make them wet. So, whenever a group of sand enemies appear I try to throw the nearest barrel with B, but even if I'm physically facing the barrel and press B he does a web attack on the enemies, which is pointless because I can't even hurt them yet. So I try targeting the barrels, but when I press LT he targets the enemies so I have to move the right stick to target the nearest barrel, but when I move the right stick he targets every single enemy in the immediate area before he targets the barrel. Even if there are no enemies on
