Spider-Man: Friend or Foe Review
2 June 2008
Excerpt: Spider-man: Friend or Foe is a a simple game. In fact, your foes are such a non-threat that you'll wonder if their hearts are really in it. Over the course of the 5-6 hour story you'll fight some of Spidey's most feared enemies, including Doctor Octopus, the Green Goblin, Sandman and more, but there's never really a challenge, leaving you with a feeling that these guys were never that bad to begin with. The premise is simple, if rather silly.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: SpiderFoF is deserving of everything bad those many previews wrote about it. It's lazy, boring and not as cool as it seems to think. It's sure to be a big hit as a Christmas present for all you little tykes out there, so just be glad that it doesn't last too long so you don't have to fake liking it for an age.
Conclusion: The low level of challenge, the cartoon-inspired look, and a tone that favors humor over pathos certainly make it seem as if Spider-Man: Friend or Foe was designed with a younger, less sophisticated audience in mind, but for what it is, this is a well-crafted game.
Pros: Action is stylish, easy to pick up, Great cast of characters supported by some solid voice acting, Doesn't take itself so seriously, Lets you play as some of Spidey's greatest enemies.
Cons: Not much enemy variety, Sidekicks not as much fun to play as Spidey, Incredibly easy.
Summary: Although the Spider-Man movies have been credited with helping comic-book movies mature and take a more sophisticated turn, the problem with all of these complex, serious heroes and villains is, well, that they're all so complex and serious. They lose sight of the fact that Spider-Man is far more entertaining when he's wheelin' free and crackin' wise rather than stressing out about the whole "with great power" thing and generally being riddled with angst.
Pros: Action is stylish, easy to pick up, Great cast of characters supported by some solid voice acting, Doesn't take itself so seriously, Lets you play as some of Spidey's greatest enemies
Cons: Not much enemy variety, Sidekicks not as much fun to play as Spidey, Incredibly easy
Conclusion: The presentation department here makes Friend or Foe come off as blatantly kiddie , dare I say. The graphical detail is easily recognizable as that of cartoony style, a connection to Saturday morning cartoons. That also means each character is rather exaggerated in stature, but that's also part of the fun. If you're into that sort of thing, Friend of Foe may be worth your look.
Excerpt: A Activision lançou mais um vídeojogo dedicado ao Homem-Aranha. E está longe de ser um must... Sem ter uma longa-metragem como pano de fundo, Spider-Man está de regresso aos vídeojogos. Ao contrário dos anteriores títulos vindos da Activision, Friend or Foe não aposta no estilo sandbox, mas sim no género brawler. E diga-se que o produto final não ficará para a história dos Spideys digitais.
Summary: "Kdo by neznal známého Spider-Mana? Postavu pavouèího muže asi nemá cenu pøedstavovat. Celá hra je postavena dle filmu, díky tomu mùžete mít dobrou pøedstavu, co Vás èeká. Stejnì jako v televizi budete Vy tím dobrým, který bude bojovat proti zlu. Využijte Vašich speciálních schopností a pohybujte se ve vysokých budovách mìsta. Hra Vás urèitì dostane. Má velmi dobrou grafiku a urèitì u ní strávíte mnoho dní (hodin)...
Summary: Beenox вложила в Friend or Foe много
грамотных идей. Адекватные
напарники, развитие персонажа, на
которое вечно недостает средств,
вменяемое управление, эффектные
побоища… Но занудные шаблонные
уровни все портят, и в итоге
получилась рядовая аркада. Разве
что вдвоем погонять пластиковых
