Ultimate Spider-Man...There Was Supposed To Be Something 'Amazing' or 'Ultimate', Right?

Summary: I remember when the first Spider-Man comic came out. Yeah I'm dating myself. He was 'Amazing' for all those years. He could climb walls, leap great distances, swing at mind numbing speeds, had AMAZINGLY fast reflexes and strength. Notice that adjective 'AMAZING'. However, this game has more of a 'LETHARGIC' Spider-Man.
Summary: I've only been playing this game for a few days, but it was enough to inspire me to write a short review (my first). If you are looking for your first Spider-Man game, buy Spider-Man 2. If you finished that one, and you want another game, then buy this one. This games looks wonderful, but there are two aspects that annoy me to no end. 1. The web swinging is horrible. I'll never understand why they didn't just use the same model from Spider-Man 2. It was perfect.
Summary: This is a very good game! The scale is grand, the graphics are fantastic and the story is great (with a fun script). Unfortunately it has a lot to live up to and falls short on a number of things: Though the story over-all is better, it's also a lot shorter and should be completed in a coupole of days (if not less). The graphic style is very different to Spider-Man 2, being the style used for the Ultimate Spider-Man comics (obviously).
Summary: I dont have this game yet but I plan on getting it for christmas. I just wanted to write this review to inform buyer of some little facts about this game especially after reading the other review found here. First this is not a sequel to the Spider-Man 2 game (which is based on the movie.) This is based on a Marvel comics titles Ultimate Spider-Man.
Summary: The game can be beaten fairly quickly by a non-skilled player, and presents no real challenge for a skilled player. The ability to play Venom alone makes this a worthy buy for any Spider-man fan. However, the game isn't as indepth as Spider-man 2 and can get tiresome after you have completed story mode.
Summary: I design video games for a living and I was very dissapointed with this game. I was looking foward to this game very much and was quite dissapointed to find that every level was the same just a different villian (i.e. you chase the villian throughout the city and then catch him and try to kill him) the biggest suck ass part of this game was the false advertising YOU CANNOT BE VENOM AND DO WHATEVER YOU WANT IN THE GAME LIKE IT HAS BEEN ADVERTISED, YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THE...

Summary: i just purchashed this game yesterday..i bought the "limited edition venom" version..after getting it home and playing it for about a hour i was saying to myself What the??..i have to say this game is very lackluster...all hype no substance.. true the graphics look good for a virtual comic book, and the swinging around new york is fun..but it was done far much better in the 2 movie games !
Excerpt: Para aquellos que no hayáis visto el cómic, es una versión diferente de la vida que conocemos de Spider-Man. La mayor diferencia está en los orígenes de Veneno (nombre traducido de uno de los mayores enemigos de Spider-Man: Venom) que en este caso es en un traje creado en un laboratorio (en lugar de venir del espacio) y, además, le afecta la electricidad en lugar del sonido. Con todo esto la trama está servida. Tendremos que acabar con Veneno, aunque no siempre será así.
