This game had so much potential but some key flaws keep it from greatness. The game had a habit of freezing or the character would get stuck or a button to interact with an object would not appear. I had to turn off my x-box several times. The web-swinging controls are difficult and frustrating at first but once you get the hang of it it becomes quite fluid. Some tips for a better experience: Periodically save your game instead of using the auto-save feature. The outcome of the game is a direct result of your actions and you might want to see what your outcome would be if you chose a different path. There is no select a level feature so unless you save on your own you'll be forced to play the entire game over in order to get you desired results.
There are a few things that don't add up if you pay attention and every comic book game will get picked apart by fan boys, but another solid from the marvel universe.
Very good story line, and love how it mixes the old with the new. However their are a few downsides, the person who plays Peters voice in the game sounds like he's 10. And the FPS has a hard time keeping up and movement is strictly limited to the down town area which in the movie games you have free range. But if you can look past these issues maybe they'll release a patch to fix the FPS issue but if your into Spider Man and Venom, with a few exciting twists play it.

THIS WAS A MUCH BETTER GAME THAN I ANTICIPATED. THE CAMERA ANGLES WERE STILL A BIT TRICKY BUT AFTER A WHILE YOU GET USED TO IT. IF THEY MAKE A SEQUEL TO IT I HOPE THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SWITCH TO CONTROL LUKE CAGE AND VULTURE MAN AND ELECTRO THE STORY WAS WRITTEN WELL I TRULY ENJOYED ALL THE DIFFERENT SYMBIOTES THEY PUT IN THE GAME. RECOMMEND THIS GAME TO EVERYONE WHO LIKES SPIDERMAN. BYE
