Spider-Man: Edge of Time review
6 August 2012
Excerpt: For years there have been good to great Spider-Man games that were based on sources diverse as movies, TV shows, and alternate universe comics. Still, over the last few years it seems like Spidey has been spinning his wheels more than his webs.
Pros: Interresting premise, Best looking in-game Spider-Man costume to date, Fun dialogue between Spideys
Cons: Boring level design, Lame enemies, Fails to live up to potential
Excerpt: I've played a lot of Spider-man games during my lifetime and this one was by far the best one ever. The storyline for this game was awesome to say the least. As a player you get to use the original Spider-man and also the Spider-man from the year 2099.
Excerpt: One of the "Amazing" things about Spider-Man is his ability to move extremely quickly when he needs to. When he's in above his head and his back's against the wall, he somehow manages to pull out all the stops and unleash an amazing flurry of attacks that are so fast that they're depicted in the...
Summary: Spider-Man: Edge of Time
is a disappointment of brobdingnagian enormity in relation to the superior
Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions
, which was quite unbelievably released
by the same development team
not much prior
to this debacle.
Pros: Limiting this conversation to pure aesthetics, then yes, the game looks reasonably nice., Voice acting is decent, if you don’t mind the fact that these two are annoying as hell, and cattier than a pair of old queens.
Cons: The two Spider-Men play exactly the same, and the two time periods appear to have few if any differences., It’s annoying as hell constantly having to switch between characters and timezones., The “witty banter” between the two Spider-Men is annoying, unfunny, and positively grating., In sum, just...
Summary: Spider-Man: Edge of Time doesn’t really reach the heights of great Spider-Man games Activision has released in the past. While it has a good story and some solid base ideas, the execution specifically with the setting and controls could’ve been so much more.
Summary: Spider-Man: Edge of Time challenges the player to take on the roles of both classic Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 to correct a timestream gone awry and prevent a catastrophic future brought on by the early and untimely death of Peter Parker.
Conclusion: Spider-Man: Edge of Time is a sloppy game that feels rushed - and with the short amount of time between it and its predecessor, Shattered Dimensions , that's not very surprising. Let's hope Spidey's next outing is better.
Conclusion: As a game that’s meant to be played, Spider-Man Edge of Time fails on some surprisingly basic levels. The simple combat and respawning enemies do little for the pacing and become a nuisance very quickly, the twitch-based falling of 2099 are high-speed but suffer from control issues, while the story...
