I really enjoyed this game when it was first released back in 2002, but, eight years later, it hasn't aged well. The graphics and animation are distractingly bad, the gameplay is pretty bland, and both the play control and camera are downright clunky.
Spider Man was an alright game overall, having some good moments and some bad ones. I, personally, enjoyed the air fights the best, while downright hating the stealth missions. A big downside in my opinion was that you are never allowed on the streets in this game. The narrative was weak while the action was strong, which was a so-so mix of things. Keeping in mind that this was a movie-based game, though, this game was above average. I also think that while they could have spread out gameplay elements a little bit more, if you're someone who got into the series franchise a bit late(like me), this game is worth putting in your Q.
