Summary: All in all, Spider-Man 2 is a good,
though not quite great, game. It offers plenty to do, a huge city to do
it in, and some of the most true-to-property Spider-Man experiences we've
ever seen and that, all by itself, is probably enough to make this game
worth picking up.
Pros: Great Spidey feel, a huge free-form city to explore, and a great swinging system to explore it with.
Cons: Buggy as hell, often sporting ridiculously designed missions, and precious few different types of missions to participate in.
Excerpt: The first Spider-Man film license based off the first film was pretty good; hell we’d even go as far to say that it was the best game we had played up until that point featuring our favourite webslinger.
Excerpt: Spider-man 2 seemed to me like the product of relentless scouring of Internet message boards, videogame reviews and fan input. To be this in tune with the audience is a badge of honor that the intuitive Treyarch developers should wear proudly.
Excerpt: So I planned on taking Spider-man 2 (and Gene's review) to task here; planned to gripe about the repetitiveness of the street crimes, the flighty combat, the lousy camera, etc. But…I can't do it. I like the game too damn much.
Excerpt: If you're a fan of Spider-Man , as I am, you'll be pleased to see such a good looking game featuring your favorite web-head. Spider-Man 2 the game is loosely based off of Spider-Man 2 the movie, so unfortunately, you've got the movie version of Spidey's costume, including the reflective eyes.
Excerpt: Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a man can - with a few jumps here and there and maybe a bit of web-slinging. This was the case, at least, in older gaming iterations of Spidey's adventures.
