this was a great game. i honestly thought this wasn't gonna be good but it was great the graphics are good.

the future. in the future spiderman is a bad man/good he fights awsome people like hobogoblin, and scorpion

the past spiderman fights really cool/freaky guys like hammerhead and vulture

the black spiderman was good but he wasn't the best

the normal spiderman is really good because he has been the spiderman we have all known since we were kids

Most people are aware that the Spider-Man games haven't exactly had a good track record over the past decade or so. But Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions has undone that.

-PLOT/CHARACTERS: In all honesty, the plot is a bit shaky. A magical tablet is broken and the fragments wind up in four different universes, and the four Spider-Men of those universes are recruited to restore the tablet. It's not stellar, but it works well enough with the game.

As for the characters, all four Spider-Men have similar personalities, but there's enough differences that they don't all feel the same. The villain choices are absolutely excellent, too; even the ones that don't exist in the comics fit in well with the game and have their own unique personality and twist.

-SOUND: Each Spider-Man has his own voice actor, and all four do excellent jobs. The villain's voice actors pull their respective characters off fantastically as well. The big issue with sound is the fact that sometimes the banter between the Spider-Men and whatever boss they happen to be facing is incredibly repetitive, but it's not too much of an issue.

-CAMERA: The worst part of this game is the camera. There are occasional periods where, while trying to do certain tasks, it flips out and you can't even see what's going on. All in all, it's not too big of a deal, though.

-GAMEPLAY: Each Spider-Man has his own specific gameplay style. Amazing uses webs, Noir relies on stealth, 2099 uses speed and agility, and Ultimate combines strength with the symbiotic black suit. This keeps the game fresh and not too repetitive. The 180 challenges add to this diversity, as some of them can be completed throughout the progression of the game, and others by making an effort. They also unlock new costumes and upgrades as well.

The graphics are absolutely great for a Wii game, especially the level design. All of them are superbly colored and perfected to look beautiful and comic-like.

Definitely worth a bu
