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. While the bulk of my distaste was directed firmly at the lame, rather serious Spider-Man 2099, by the end of the game I wanted to strangle
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 another pointless beat 'em up., What ever happened to my spider-sense?, Free fall mode, or anything relating to Spider-Man 2099, who may be the most annoying character ever c...
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.

As it stands, Spider-Man: Edge of Time feels like a quick cash-in on Shattered Dimensions, and not a fully developed game in its own right. This is not the best Spider-Man has to offer.
Excerpt: Spindelmannen har som superhjälte haft en lång och brokig historia, allra mest när universumet ska adapteras till tv-spelens värld. Bland alla Spindelmannen-spel, finns det verkligen utrymme för ännu ett? Nätsvingandet och actionmomenten i Spider-Man: Edge of Time ska visa sig inte vara så uttjatat som man kan tro.
Excerpt: Spider-Man har optrædt adskillige gange i computerspil gennem tiden, og som oftest med ret slemme resultater til følge. Sidste års udgivelse, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, var dog en undtagelse, som bød på både varierede og virkeligt velfungerende gameplay-mekanismer. Til trods for, at Spider-Man: Edge of Time kommer fra samme udvikler, er det desværre milevidt fra sidste års kvaliteter.
