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.
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.
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
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.
Conclusion: Ultimate Spiderman is the kind of game that you could conceivably pay full price for. Sure, you might feel a little annoyed cos of the repetition factor, but the quality of play generally speaking is easily high enough to make you feel like you got your money's worth. Ditto the production values, which are nothing short of outstanding. So paying half a bill for it seems like pretty good value, from where I'm at.
Pros: Storyline written by actual comic writers, hurrah., This thing looks wicked in action
Conclusion: Au final, le constat est bon mais loin de combler la plupart de nos attentes. Ultimate Spiderman pourrait se résumer ainsi : des qualités graphiques indéniables servies par un contenu qui semble avoir été bâclé. Dommage, car avec une durée de vie à la hauteur de son enveloppe graphique, le titre d’Activision aurait pu frapper très fort !
