This game is very similar to Spider-man 2 on the DS, upon playing this game the first time you will notice the only real difference in this game is the Ultimate spider-man comic book type look, but I did like it better than Spider-man 2 just because of the graphics look a little better. It does have some of the similar problems from Spider-Man 2 like how you can get lost very easily in some levels. I don't really recommend this game but I geuss its worth a rental.
This is my favorite Spider-Man platforming style game ever. The graphics are beautiful, the story line is very good, and I cannot think of something much more fun than eating humans to regain my health as I did when I played as Venom. The moves available are very useful and well thought out for both of the playable characters (Venom and Spidey). The villians you face (Carnage, Rhino, and a ton of others) offer a good deal of challenge, but more importantly : fun. The game is a little short, it isnt too difficult until the later levels, but overall it was a very good experience. Rent this game now.
