Very Good

Best Spidey Platformer EVER!

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.

A Spidey game I don't really like

I never, ever thought that I wouldn't enjoy playing as Venom. However, the awkward combination of touch screen and button controls is something I just can't get used to. Playing as Spidey himself is OK, but you're tasked with saving people far too often. The genre is called beat-'em-up, not save-'em-up. Check out "Spider Man: Web Of Shadows" on the DS if you're looking for a more straightforward beat-'em-up experience with ol' Webhead. It's pretty difficult, but more enjoyable in my opinion. Add this to your Queue and form your own.

Not much Different from spiderman 2 for the DS.

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.
