Conclusion: Sadly, Spider-Man 3 just doesn’t have what it takes. It’s plagued by basic design issues both in terms of control and fundamental presentation that make it unworthy of any Spider-Fan’s repertoire.
Excerpt: Like so many disappointing Wii games, you'd assume Peter Parker's web swinging alias and the Wii-mote were a match made in heaven. But before you Sellotape remotes to your wrists and ready yourself for leaping off your bed, brace yourself for what you surely already expected; Spider-Man 3 on the Wii is quite a letdown.
Excerpt: Having already had the chance to review the PS3 version of Spider-Man 3, I was very interested to see how the game would be developed for Nintendo's Wii. To control Spidey with the wiimote and nunchuk really had me interested as the innovation might really make this a game worth playing.
Summary: Spider-Man 3 is a hate it or love it type game it seems. When it’s working it’s working great and fun to play. Then again, when the glitches kick in, they kick hard. Activision set out to make a fun game to accompany the movie, and they did. You just have to give it some time, and they game will grow on you.
Summary: Based on the feature film, Spider-Man 3 allows players to experience the actions of heroic red-suited Spider-Man and, for the first time ever, his darker, more mysterious black-suited persona.
Excerpt: Both the Spider-Man 3 movie and game have recently copped a lot of flack from critics, reviewers and fans alike. The movie tries to say too much in such a short time, regretfully ruining all hope of character development and an engaging story. In the end the movie fell short from what made the previous movies before it such a spectacle to watch.
Excerpt: I had a hunch that I might have a possible weak title on my hands when I realized that the narrator in the game was sometimes more entertaining than the gameplay. Which game am I referring to? Spider-Man 3 for the Wii, of course. [Brendon's Note: I dare you to find any game more entertaining than Bruce Campbell. Come on, Frank--that's just not fair!] The main thing that tangles up this game is the horrible way it handles the Wiimote and nunchuck controllers.
