Comics, not movies

This game has moments when it sputters. But overall, it's just a fun game to play. Especially if you are a fan of the Spider-Man comics. The missions are fun, although somewhat repetitive. And being able to call on fellow Marvel characters based on which suit you are wearing is a simple, but great idea. It really adds to the gameplay and changes the outcome in some circumstances. The worst aspect - the voice acting. Spider-Man sounds like he is about 12 years old and says some of the corniest lines ever recorded in video game history. That being said, the game is enjoyable to play and definitely worth spending some time on. Especially for a Marvel fan.

after being sorely dissapointed with the lame ps2 version of the game this one rides in and blows my freakin mind with the go your own way and clever upgrades for each suit this game get a ten all around for story and for the marvel universe having a bgger part this time and letting you explore the darkside of the wall crawler

Spiderman Web of Shadows is a great free-roam beat em up game. If you like flashy fighting and aerobatics, this is the game for you. The fighting mechanics of this game are easy to use and understand, timing is the key to a lot of this, thus it can get kind of annoying. Once you upgrade your fighting skills you are hard pressed to see the same moves twice. For gameplay I give it a (9/10)

This game seems to be the only one of its kind that follows in the Marvel universe to such an extent. The story incorporates a lot of references and cameo appearances across the game. You may want to brush up on your Marvel Know-how because it becomes necessary in some parts of the game. The story progresses rather fast and cam seem to be the same thing over and over again. Only now and than does it give you a new weapon to add to your arsenal. Another let down is whoever they hired to play Peter Parker, learned how to voice act by recreating the screeching from the birds in Aldred Hitchcocks movies. For story, I give it a (5/10)

This game has well structured graphics. Only every now and then will you be faced with lag from this game. It is kind of disappointing that you can only break certain things here and there. I thought they could have done better, given it is a next gen console. For graphics, I give it a (7/10)

Overall, it is a good game, but not recommended for someone looking for a game to keep them busy for awhile.
