Summary: This game is over-hyped by the critics. Yes it has excellent graphics for the GBA and is better than many superhero games, but its too short, too easy for much of the game and is padded out with annoying scavenger huts. Buy any of the 3 GBA movie based spiderman games to get a better experience.
"Spider-Man: Mysterio's Menace" on Game Boy Advance

Summary: Having been a Spider-Man fan for as long as I can remember, this was obviously a game that could not have failed to escape my attention. Mysterio's Menace sees you playing as Spider-Man in an effort to prevent Mysterio: master of illusion from getting up to what he loves best... creating startling illusions and dangerous obstacles in order to rid the world of your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man!
Summary: This version of Spiderman for the GBA reaches high standards with excellent graphics and good gameplay due to all of spideys different moves. The only downfall, however, is the lack of levels. There are only about seven levels and although they have seperate sections to them, and are tricky when you attempt to find everything, it still isnt enough though.
Summary: ...on the old Megadrive or Game Gear? Well essentially that is what we have here with a few add-ons. I've always been a bit of a fan of Spidey's so I was looking forward to playing this wee game quite a bit on my new GB advance. Things looked promising flicking through the manual - loads of moves and power-ups so I thought - and I was initially impressed by the intro screens, you can't fault the presentation.
Summary: This is a wonderful game full of rich and vibrant colours. Each level is full of secrets to reveal, not to mention their size which will have you playing for months. Finding all of the power ups will keep you entranced and entertained. In this game there are seven levels but each could take hours to find your way through as each is designed in an interesting and intracit style.
Summary: Well i have 2 say that this was a fab game, great graphics, lovely animation, many enemies. The only trouble is when you finish the game after about 4 days. When u finally complete Mysterio in a very challenging final fight, nothing happens; u dont unlock anything like harder levels. You just finish and get the goldfish bowl. Which is what I did unfortunately. but never the less, i enjoyed myself.
Summary: I think i will get this one as soon as it comes out as I love this old style gaming! It reminds me much of streets of rage for the megadrive with much better graphics and of course its spiderman which means web-slinging fun and some kick-ass bosses!
