Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Review

Conclusion: It may seem like I’m ragging on certain aspects of Shattered Dimensions a lot, and while the design does feel uneven, the point is the game ends up feeling like a mixed bag. There are certain levels, strewn about throughout all four universes that Spidey fans will get a kick out of. But for every cool moment as one of the Spider-Men, there are just as many ones that are forgettable.
One of the better Spider-Man video games in recent memory.

Summary: Parents need to know that Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is a "Teen"-rated superhero game that serves as an interactive comic book. The web-slinger engages is a lot of combat -- between the four different worlds and four falvors of Spider-Man characters -- including a stealthy level that requires you to sneak up on unsuspecting enemies.
Excerpt: I’ve never been a huge fan of the Spider-Man franchise, either the comics or video games. I somewhat enjoyed the movies though I also acknowledge that they’ve been losing their lustre, much like the series was in terms of videogames.
Conclusion: The control and QA problems are unfortunate, really, because this is easily the best Spider-Man game in nearly every other respect. The game looks better than any of its predecessors, and the use of four characters really diversifies the gameplay. The upgrade system is solid, the levels are nicely designed, and the bosses are all memorable.
Excerpt: Spider-Man has been kicking around in the videogame world since time immemorial, but arguably he hasn't been done justice yet. Shattered Dimensions is hoping that sheer quantity is the missing piece of the puzzle. Are four Spideys better than one, or yet another crossover best forgotten? One day, Mysterio decides to rob a museum. His target: the Tablet of Order and Chaos, an artifact capable of bestowing unimaginable powers to its holder.
Summary: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions will allow players to travel through four different worlds as distinctly different versions of Spider-Man from four universes across Marvel lore, including The Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man Noir.
Excerpt: Superhero-oriented comic book publishers such as DC or Marvel don’t seem to get enough of cloning, resurrecting, era-swapping or mummifying their heroes for the sole purpose of launching new series in alternative dimensions featuring the same protagonists. All of these prehistoric Wolverines, anti-gravitational Aquamen, Victorian Cyclopses daze me to no end and therefore I couldn’t honestly tell you that I grasp all the narratives and their intersections in all the...
Pros: Abilities and gameplay elements specific to each dimension, Beautiful graphics, Four universes with alternating storylines, graphic styles and voicework, Fresh level design for a Spider-Man game
Cons: Short and visibly recycled at times, Too easy for anyone who has played action/adventure games in the past six years
Excerpt: Pentru studiourile de mare anvergură (cum ar fi DC sau Marvel) ce se ocupă cu benzile desenate cu supereroi, nu pare să existe pasiune mai mare decât clonarea, învierea, transportarea în timp sau mumificarea lor cu scopul de a mai lansa o bandă desenată într-o dimensiune alternativă.
Pros: Abilităţi şi elemente de gameplay distincte în cele patru dimensiuni, Grafică atractivă, Level design reuşit pentru un joc Spider-Man, Patru universuri descrise alternativ prin poveşti, stiluri grafice şi voci
Cons: Mult prea uşor pentru oricine a mai jucat action/adventure-uri în ultimii 6 ani, Scurt şi vizibil reciclat în anumite porţiuni
Excerpt: Shattered Dimensions går på mange måder tilbage til spindelvævets rødder. De seneste Spidey-spil har forsøgt sig med et open-world New York, idéen er smuk men spillene har lidt under filmspil-itis og har været alt andet end perfekte. Shattered Dimensions er derimod mere eller mindre fuldstædig lineær action; 15 baner, 14 skurke og 4 Spider-Men. Ja du hørte rigtigt, 4. Shattered Dimensions foregår som titlen antyder i fire dimensioner, med hver deres Spider-Man.
