Excerpt: The Amazing Spider-Man is 50 years old this year. Let’s see if the game for Nintendo DS lives up to the legend that is the comic-book and movie hero. There’s no opening movie. I expected to see a big animated trailer inspired by the new movie. But I kind of like it this way.
Cons: Spidey is too tiny; uninspired artwork; limited tutorial/help.
Conclusion: Go beyond Sony Picture Entertainment's Columbia Pictures feature film and find out what happens next in The Amazing Spider-Man video game, which brings Spider-Man's free-roaming, web-slinging action back to New York City.
