I expected this game to be alot like the Spider-man movie games. But i was pleasantly surprised most of the controls were the same as the movie games. But the plot was different. It was fun, addicting game. A lot of comic book villains which was good. I gave it a nine because it was a little too short
I grew up on the "old" Spiderman so the revamped Ultimate didn't hold the same sentimental value as the original.
Still the graphics are enjoyable and the many differnt things to "do" in the city keeps the tempo up.
My biggest complaint is--TOO MANY DEADLINES. Yes, I know you're a superhero (when you're playing as teenage Spidey) but geez, enough with the "save this person OR ELSE" or "keep up with the bad guy through the city OR ELSE" or "beat the bad guy in time OR ELSE" and that "OR ELSE" is always mission failure, start over again.
Don't know who the first joker who wrote a positive review was but I did NOT find this easy. Yes, it is mostly fun to play but the deadline missions eventually forced me to put it down or kick the TV.
