25 May 2009
Excerpt: I was so anxious to get my hands on this game. Seeing the trailers of the new ground-to-wall-to-air fighting system looked awesome. I am, by the way, a big Spidey fan, so a new Spider-Man game for the PS3 had my attention immediately. In general, the appearance of New York is nicely done.
