Summary: It's been awhile since there's been a good Spidey game. Being a huge fan of Spidey 2 for the PS2, I decided to give this game a try. The story, to me, was hectic and all over the place, and you're pretty much just put in the middle of chaos when the game begins. You do a whole bunch of side-missions, and like all other games, you fight the crime in the streets and save the hostages swinging them to the hospital, so on and so forth. This can get to be very repetitive.
Summary: Good game although the graphics and gameplay could be improved. It plays like a open world fighting game because all you do to enemies is just press: square,square,triangle. It's fun though, and stopping crimes is cool! The web swinging mechanic is good because pressing different button makes yours truly do fancy tricks. The boss fights are pretty hyper, electro is probably the most irrataiting boss ever!
Conclusion: This is a great improvement on the previous movie tie-in spiderman games. The story line and characters are good and although the voice acting is terrible it doesn't spoil the experience really. This is definately a step forward for the spiderman game series, the controls are tighter, the combat is better and the terrible camera issues have been resolved...mostly.
Conclusion: Having played the first three games based on the movie and only bothering to complete the first two, I was expecting this game to get caught in the web of the terrible pathway their games have been heading lately. But as a matter of fact it did NOT.
Summary: Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is a game that is good, fun, entertaining, along with all the other basics, it has many flaws. The graphics, design of New York city and gameplay are all good for their own reasons: - Graphics are excellent, a solid 9/10 - they give you the feeling that this is somewhat close to real life and allow you to get involved in the game.
