Repetitive and Deceiving with the Action & Story

Another dropped ball. After the Hulk and Iron Man fiascos, I thought the studios had gotten the message, sigh. And with all these 10s and 9s up here, I'm wondering if there isn't some hidden marketing going on here, because I was fooled into thinking that this was going to be a big and challenging game. Instead, it got so repetitive that I found myself WAITING for the story to kick in! I thought there was an invasion going on in the city! I patiently go through 2 or 3 sets of earning new moves and still no symbiotes.

The combat and web swinging was fun, so was upgrading Spider-Man, but I was really, really waiting for that "invasion" to happen! Don't tell me that I have to play it for x-amount of hours for the real action to kick in. Not fun. I'm really thinking some of you guys up here are getting paid to like this, cuz there's no way I can give this a 10. Unless you guys are just easy, just like with that Star Wars TFU fiasco. Please, spare me.

this is not the best game i've played but its good but i think its the most acrobatic spider man game yet. The story line is not really good at all and the voice acting is horrible! Get it if your a huge spider man fan rent it, i got bored with it the first 30 minutes i played it.

I've been waiting for this game to come out for a long time, I finally got it, and I LOVED IT!!!!!!!! The best Spider-Man game ever! The controls are so simple even a noob to gaming can pick them up. Lot's of people don't really like the storyline, but I think it is pure GOLD, there are lots of boss battles and they are all some of the best out there, the mini bosses are really good too. And there's a great cool roster of comic book characters, like Vulture, Black Cat,[Which is really hot!] Luke Cage, and Moon Knight, and there are other ones to, I just haven't reached that point in the game yet. I also really liked the freestyle in the game, it was really fun swinging around New York like the real Spider-Man. This game also has lot's of replay value because you can start over and choose the opposite side. And being able to change suits is really cool.
The only flaws in this game are, the graphics could be better, and the voice acting is kinda corny. But even with these minor flaws, this game is totally worth the 60 dollars, I recommend it to every gamer out there!
