This game fits its title by being amazing. There are a few minor kinks her and there, but not enought to ruin the overall gameplay and story. Once you have a handle on the controls this game becomes fluid both in normal movement and combat. You got to get used to seing things from all angles as Spiderman would. Sometimes you may confuse up from down when you just start playing. Spiderman banters like he does in the movie, although I really wish they would add more cause it is to quick on the repeats. The game looks good. Good do a bit better on it, but it's definetly nice. I really don't know about the bad reviews, but everyone can experience something differently and they may very well have been having glitches that made them dislike this game that I would say is almost as good as arkham city in terms of combat. Spiderman actually plays a lot like catwoman when on the ground. Since, I liked her fighting style the best in Arkham city, it is safe to say I enjoy playing spiderman whos combat is similar. Plus you can easily move from one end to the other with spiderman. Character wise, I prefer darker characters like batman, but I also like the comedic banter of Spiderman which is done pretty well in this despite the lack of random dialogue outside the story. The story itself is serious, and will make you want to complete the goals right away if thats your thing. I, however, am someone who likes to take my time exploring the games I play and this game allows me to do that and quickly to cause of spidermans fast paced webslinging. Getting from one end to the other is pretty quick. I do wish it had more random events, but I am still only in the beginning of the game at 20 something completion. So, I won't comment on the future possibilities as new things keep popping up in the game that make it even better than when you started it.

First off, this is the best looking Spider-Man game ever made, but with dissapointing upgrades, only one main boss you are quarreling with, and repetitive gameplay it gets old very quickly and lacks any replay value. Web of Shadows is the best Spidey game if you are wanting to buy one, swinging around the city is the MOST fun in this game but it isn't the best one.
I don't know why I had such high expectations for this game, but I was let down. It's old, I get that but I was expecting the graphics to be a lot better and the game play to be a lot more interesting. A lot of the game play seems to be continuous, like deactivating the hunters (which is wicked annoying) but other than that it wasn't horrible. Saying that I would never buy this game and it could of been a lot better in my opinion.
