Ultimate Spider-Man

Just RPG
29 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Over the years there have been a lot of Spiderman games, and they seem to keep getting better and better. Fortunately, Ultimate Spiderman continues the trend, and leaves Spiderman fans an enjoyable game that does a great job of capturing the essence of Spiderman. The Venom suit was designed by Doctors Richard Parker and Edward Brock in an attempt to find a cure for cancer.

Ultimate Spider-Man Review

13 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Being the Ultimate Spider-Man geek that I am, it's fair to say that I had astronomically high expectations for the comic-to-game adaptation. I was among the first to salivate over the title when it hit store shelves and among the first to pick up the not-so-rare limited edition copy, which all in all wasn't worth the extra money.

  • Excerpt: If, like me, you have no interest in the Ultimate Spider-Man series of comic books, then the clever connections between Treyarch’s latest creation and the paper-based origins of the character will be lost on you. If you are a fan, however, then you should probably already know that the story of the videogame version of Ultimate Spider-Man follows on from the comic books, and the events of the game will steer the story of those books in the future.

Ultimate Spider-Man – Review

GameCritics.com
12 July 2006
  • Excerpt: I would say that I'm a fan of Spider-Man , but I am usually not a fan of Spider-Man games. I have fond memories of web-slinging on the Genesis and Neversoft's entry on the PS1 is still the best adventure to be had with Peter Parker's alter ego, if you ask me. Besides those two outings, old Spidey has been stuck starring in a long string of unsatisfying, unhappy titles.

  • Summary: There's no need for an Uncle Ben to be Spider-Man! Just use one Ulysses S. Grant, five Alexander Hamiltons', ten Abe Lincholns', or even their next door neighbor, Mr. Trade-in.

  • Excerpt: Not based on a movie this time, Ultimate Spider-Man instead pulls from the pages of the comic book series of the same name, which itself is a revisionist version of the original Amazing comics that first starting appearing back in 1962.

  • Conclusion: By far the best Spider-Man game ever made, and there have been plenty. The presentation, dialogue, storyline and characters all come together to make a living, breathing comic, and it's nothing short of spectacular.

19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Also the game suffers from the one main downside of SM2 – there are too few side missions and those that there are, are just far too similar. A real shame when you consider all the potential characters the game has as well as having two playable (and considerably different) characters.
  • Pros: Looks stunning at times, Choc-a-block full of great comic cameos, 2 characters for the price of one
  • Cons: Very, very, very annoying race missions, Still has camera problems, Not enough variety in side missions

My spider-butt is tingling!

20 November 2006
  • Conclusion: Considering the price of your standard console game, this kind of short play-time is inexcusable, and hence the reason I can only recommend Ultimate Spider-Man as a rental. It's pretty, but shallow and ultimately disappointing, so swing with caution.
