Both myself and my two boys really enjoyed the game. The only draw back was the language. I know it is rated teen and even says mild language. But I really don't like that about games. I want to be able to sit down and play a superhero game with my kids and not have to worry about turning the volume down.

This game is for someone who is able to memorize a bunch of control combinations. I rented it because my 3 yo is a Spiderman fanatic and thought we could both play it. Well I'm not that great at those kind of games and he could only walk and swing around lol.
To start out I would just like to say even the title can tell you your in for a great surprise. It will show each Spiderman in the original crouching stance. The percentage goes up by beating levels, completing challenges and unlocking extras. The cutscenes can be low or high graphiced depending on the point in the game. The cutscenes for each section are high graphiced much like in X-Men Origins when the graphics would change for important plot scenes. Each level has a unique fighting style. Amazing is web-based combat, Noir is all about timing stealth attacks, 2099 is all about agility and free falling and Ultimate is sll about hand-to-hand combat and the Rage meter. The levels have similar enviroments for each dimension. The art style is also much different for each dimension. In Noir its black and white in shadows and with the spider sense and color when in light. With Amazing its more about the ink and paper style and black and white spider sense. In 2099 its metallic and futuristic with blue spider sense, and that sucks because most of the gameplay includes blue walls, floor and background. Ultimate is kind of a standard game art style with a blue spider sense and red rage. The gameplay is great, and overall there are very few problems.
