Ultimate Spider-man puts you in the feet of Peter Parker from the Ultimate Series Spider-Man books.

In the game you start of with some training to familiarize yourself with the combat buttons and your web shooting powers.

The Cinematics in this game make it feel as if you were reading a moving comic book, we all know how that feels. Heads turn mouths move, and people talk.

before you can actually complete the story in this game you have to do "City Goals" these are things such as races, Being a hero *where you go and save people* and doing "Combat Tours". So if you want to finish another story mode after the one you just finished.. your going to have to do some more Superhero work. or in Peters Case, Teenage Super Hero. Yes, He's' a kid.

This is a nice game you can free roam anywhere in a selected part of new york. where you can swing from buildings and into alleys where you might find a token. There are three three types of special tokens. Comic Cover Tokens, Landmark tokens, and Secret Tokens. All tokens go to help you unlock something in the Unlocks area.

In the Unlocks section of your start menu, you can select from, Characters, Costumes, Concept art, Comic Book Covers, Landmarks, and an X-men Video game Trailer.

Not only do you play as Peter Parker in this game.. but you play as Venom, who is a very Muscular Pitch Black monster that eats people and jumps from building to building.

When you play as venom very few things are alike to spider man. Because Venom cannot swing with spider webs, and he lacks the Spidey senses.

Well to Find out more about this game you have to rent it and play it.

Happy Webbing.

As an avid web-head i enjoyed this game a lot. Swinging around the city is fun and combat is very simple and very action oriented(no complicated combo attacks).

However as someone not familiar with the Ultimate Spider-man universe i had a hard time grasping the story. half of the villians i didn't recognize since they're nothing at all like they're Marvel Universe counterparts. Perhaps if i had been familiar with the Ultimate universe books i'd enjoy playing the game more however that's not to say Ultimate Spiderman is a bad game.

If your a comic book geek then you're sure to love this game and should buy either the Xbox or the PC version.

For anyone who has read "The Ultimate Spiderman" comics they'll get a real kick out of this game. I'm a huge fan of Spiderman and I'm excited that they give him a lot of things to do in this game. I really hope they make more of the "Ultimate" series. Playing as Venom is a huge bonus.
