At first I gave this game a much lower rating but I find myself pouring time on it. The game have a lot of bugs and flaws, the graphics is not good, and the story is so-so.
The one thing that's great about it is it's action-packed and you don't need to think to play this game insert the disc and have a BLAST. It could have been the best spidey game ever just needed more polished and testing.

I thought the game was a very fun game to play. The fighting system is very fluid and the animation of Spider-Man is great in both fighting and while swinging through the city. The Moves you acquire through-out the game seem to never disappoint in thire look and feel. By allowing a seamless switch of attack combination like a "Air" attack to a "Ground" attack straight into "Special" its all so fluid giving a slight movie like feel, it would seem to an onlooker like every fight is a choreographed scene. Even when Spider-Man gets blocked it all seamless. The camera helps by slowing and adding an effect of anticipation for each move to connect. The two suits in the game also make the combat even more expansive each having its owe style of fighting and movement but what makes it even better is you can change suits on the fly in mid punch making the combos even more creative. For example your fighting in the "Red Suit" which is more agile allowing for fast quick hits giving your enemy less time to counter and then switch into the "Black Suit" by having a more powerful more destructive attack you can land your finishing blow.
The scope of the city is much bigger that I expected. With great detail on each building it seemed to have its own individual architecture making it hard to tell whether a building had been used more than once in the landscape of the city if they had I never noticed. It even has places that if you read the comics you might recognize while these place have no baring on the game or story they still brought the a 3D comic Book vision of New York to the readers of the comics. And added more reason to explore the city out side missions.
The story. for me its not all that great but its not bad either Ive played worse, Oh and spider mans voice you'll now what I mean, [ L1 ] BUTTON CLINGS TO WALLS,
