Fantastic idea, flawed execution

The Good:
-Wonderful combo system
-Devil May Cry-inspired combo meter (which ups attack power as it goes higher)
-Good attempt to expand Spider-Man handheld games beyond brawlers with a Metroidvania-inspired layout

The Bad:
-Bland, boring, ugly environments
-Very few enemies types, enemies become more annoying than challenging
-Very few boss encounters which differ only minimally

Bottom line: If you enjoy Spider-Man, Metroidvania-style exploration, or Devil May cry-esque combat, this warrants a rental. Hopefully the inevitable sequel will iron out the flaws and deliver something truly amazing.

this is a fun game only problem we encountered was how to get from underground level to street level without any instruction booklets. Tried to search on internet for instructions, but did not succeed.

i bought this game and im gona tell you the one problem i have with this game straight up.the graphics are not very good and there is very little detail in the character.Alright now onto the positive side. After a while this game gets addicting. And its not too easy too. It is a somewhat difficult game. you could relate this to metriod sort of since you can unlock new powers as you progress. you can also get experience orbs which you can buy new attack moves for the red suit, black suit, or both. there isn't too many cut scenes also. if you lose all your health it takes you to the lower screen when spider man is laying dead in the middle of a web and red orbs ( health) are floating around and you have a certain amount of time to drag them too spider man. this is a very fun game if you are into spider man and have a nintendo DS you should get this game
