Excerpt: Of Beenox’s attempts at the Spider-Man franchise, it is my opinion that The Amazing Spider-Man is the most successful at being accessible yet though the scores it received certainly don’t reflect that sentiment.
Excerpt: If neither of the Batman: Arkham games were made, I would consider The Amazing Spider-Man to be the best superhero game I'd ever played. That being said, I'm more than comfortable calling it the best Spider-Man game I've ever played.
Excerpt: You'll excuse me for damning a game with faint praise, but The Amazing Spider-Man is pretty good for a superhero movie tie-in. This is also the best Spider-Man game to roll off Activision's sturdy assembly line in years, even though that isn't saying very much.
Excerpt: In the latest movie tie-in game, Spidey is back in his new adventure Amazing Spider-Man.

Pros: Combat looks good, chasing getaway cars is fun
Cons: Combat is too shallow, stealth is poorly thought out, collectibles are annoying to collect
Excerpt: It seems like only yesterday when I was sitting around playing Spider-man on the Nintendo 64. Back then the games had a comic book feel to them. How things change in the span of ten or so years. It’s safe to say that Spider-man has had its ups and downs in the game industry.
