Excerpt: Spider-Man 2 looks pretty good on the PSP. It's not movie-quality imagery, but it's pretty darn good for a video game, especially for a handheld system. Spidey is recognizable, as are J. Jonah Jameson, Doc Ock and others. Surprisingly, I found that Peter Parker didn't look quite right, but that could be just my opinion.
Excerpt: Two years have passed since Peter Parker first hit the streets as the troubled Spider-Man, torn between power and responsibility. Now he finds himself battling against the twisted, mechanically modified Doc Ock, once the timid but brilliant nuclear physicist Dr Otto Octavius, now a criminally insane megalomaniac who blames Spider-Man for his tragic transformation. Can you stop the powerful Doc Ock in his quest for revenge...
Summary: Spider-Man 2 is an positive example of how to
do a movie-to-film conversion properly. It stays close in spirit to the film
while offering a few side-quests and unique areas to surprise players. The game
controls beautifully with an intuitive command system that allows players plenty
of flexibility in terms of combat style. The level designs are clever and smart,
with the game unfolding at a fast pace.
Excerpt: Spider-Man 2 for PSP is a decent game, but after the success of its bigger cousin versions, this one might seem a bit restricted. The graphics are great, and there's some good fun to have here, but don't expect this one to be a deciding factor in your decision to buy a PSP.
Conclusion: All photographs representing screenshots from PSP LCD monitor and related images were taken using 3.2 MP digital camera. The replication and quality of the screen shots are not true representations of the picture/video quality. In fact, the actual LCD is substantially sharper and clearer. As well, the aspect ratios in the screen shots are not true representations. Some images may be cropped and slightly irregular.
Excerpt: As opposed to the console versions, Spider-Man 2 for the PSP is completely linear. There are no free-roaming segments in the game, so those hoping for a little New York City skyscraper hopping must continue waiting. Instead, the PSP Spidey is much like the original Spider-Man released back in 2002 and the comic-like Spiderman titles that Neversoft did on the original PlayStation.
Excerpt: It seems that Spider-Man is popping up all over the place. After two incredible movies and two fun console games based on the movies, the world has once again caught "Spidey Fever." Spider-Man has popped up on the PS2, Xbox, GameCube, mobile phones, the Game Boy Advance, and even the N-Gage. Being a huge fan of Spider-Man, that is not a bad thing.
