Games like this are the reason why you should never buy or rent a game fashioned after a motion picture. I had a conversation with my Nana whilst playing this game, full eye contact hitting only attack and evade. I didn't die, but my hope for a good spider-man game did. I played this game for about 30 mins and decided the game itself wasn't even good enough for coaster for my knock off mountain dew...why do they hate spider-man so much?

~This game makes you figure out where you have to go

A great game with just a few errors. Definitely worth a rent and even a buy. Consider everything I listed above.
Although decent in it's own right, it lacks the control that should make a Spider-Man game great. Spider-Man 2 was awesome because you got to control how you swung through the city, not just picking a place to go and pressing a button.
Combat is very repetitive and broken up into quick-time events and pre-mapped combat moves that are achieved at the press of a button. I wish I could fight my way instead of doing it how the game wants me to do it, especially in a Spider-Man game.
Also, the game tells you how to do EVERYTHING! Too much hand-holding is complete turn-on and one that shouldn't be in a game at all.
All-in-all, I'm glad I only rented this title instead of paying full price. The lack of player control, and hand-holding in this game isn't ideal. Again, this game is only worth a rent.
