This game is horrible. The graphics really suck! The game play is bad because all you do is web sling, punch, and that's it. Playing as Venom is pretty cool, but it gets old. The gang members that you fight are REALLY dumb - I was standing right next to them and they didn't do anything! So, all I did was punch one of them and he did nothing. Also, I don't know why the makers decided to put comic book graphics for it. If you want a real game get Splinter Cell Chaos Theory. And remember, stay away from any game based on a superhero!

this game bit! it had cheesy in game graphics and the story was long and drawn out. i got bored doing the stupid side games just to try to advance the story. i love spider-man but hated this game. two thumbs down!!
Game play ruined this for me. The camera and controls on this version makes this game unplayable. The controls weren't solid. I felt I had no trust in the controls most of the time and it felt a little too button mashy. It's possible it is due to the fact that I am playing it on my 360, but the controls didn't have the fluidity that the movie versions had and I didn't have the same issue with those versions. Most of the time the camera was just looking the wrong way which added too much of a challenge in chase scenes. Not to mention the race missions where impossible! The directional arrows where just useless when you can't tell what and which way it's pointing.Who made this version? and why did they change what worked in the movie versions? I gave the game a 2 since I loved the graphical style of the game which reminded me of the decent Mtv version of Spiderman and it was the only reason I kept playing it. Too bad the creators didn't focus on game play the way they worked on the comic book style. I had high hopes for this incarnation but was such a disappointment.
