Excerpt: The third episode is on a rise path. To call it evolution is something, and not entirely deprived of tradition. The pixel trilogy has limped since it snapped its step onto the wrong platform. I know, it's nobody's fault. We...
Excerpt: Bugs everywhere are in constant danger of sad deaths, splattered against glass windowpanes. Apparently, the same even holds true for superhero bugs. Maybe that's why playing Spider-Man 3 for the Wii is a lot like slowly picking up a napkin you've just used to squish a spider. You know it's going to look awful under there, with those eight little legs splayed in every direction, but at least that makes it interesting.
of the comics and movies will be happy to know that the developers have
given players several bonuses, including several sequences and characters
that weren't in the movie. This makes for a longer game, and the ability
to play as either Spidey's dark alter-ego Venom or the New Goblin should
please those hardcore enough, but these new characters and additions don't
really add much to the overall game's feel.
Excerpt: When Spider-Man's grand debut arrived on the PlayStation, it was the first we've experience web-slinging in 3D. The game was based on the comic book series, seeing as how the movie wasn't out yet, but regardless the game sold extremely well. Activision has been extremely fortunate to have the Spider-Man franchise at their helm for the past 7 years now. Besides the Tony Hawk franchise, Spider-Man is one of Activision's highest grossing licenses.
Conclusion: Spider-Man 3 on the Wii and PS2 is ultimately a total washout. The badly cut-together storyline, nasty graphics, and dull-as-a-doornail gameplay all come together to create an experience that feels entirely haphazard. When you can't even make the sensation of webswinging freely through a major metropolis thrilling, or turn Spider-Man's array of nimble combat moves into something halfway entertaining, you know you've got a stinker on your hands.
Pros: Huge city to explore.
Cons: A relatively short, completely disjointed storyline, Crummy combat moves and lame enemies, Graphics are massively underwhelming, Cheesy voice acting.
Excerpt: Well, something tells me the PSP version will probably be the same game as the other two anyway so why am I bothering? I don’t know, I don’t know. Anyway the game is the same game be it the PS2 or Wii version. Sure, you can get an inferior version on the DS, or you can get a (cough) “superior” version on the XBox360 or PS3 but why would you.
Excerpt: Is he strong? Listen bud, he's got radioactive blood! Before I get onto the review, let me start with a quick diatribe about Spider-Man 3. Don't worry for those who haven't seen it, I'm not going to give any spoilers away, but for me I preferred the first two as I think Sam Raimi has begun to demonstrate symptoms of what I call the "Joel Schumacher" syndrome. Movie buffs will know what I'm going on about, the rest of you see the film and make up your own minds.
