Great concept, but only good for one play-through at best.

Summary: PROs: 4 different endings allow storyline to be above-average Cool combos make for interesting fights New York City map technology gives you lots of freedom to seek side-missions CONs: Frustrating camera angles (especially when locked on) Character movement is a bit rough Little replay value Repetitive play Infuriating controller glitches during "dodge sequences" Any fan of previous Spider-Man games will enjoy this to some degree.
Summary: Over the years, Spiderman games have gotten a bad reputation. This game only adds to that. I am a Spiderman fan myself, but this game really let me down. The length of this game is a joke, the challenges and "boss" fights are not difficult at all, and the storyline isn't all that great either. The one thing I did like about this game was the physics and fighting style. When you are swinging from your web, it really feels more natural compared to the other games.
Summary: If your planning to buy this game then hold on. Because it stinks i recommend to get the Xbox 360 or ps3. Because some of the systems have no 3D free roam like ps2.And also the graphics suck. If u don't take my word for it rent it first. If you really like it buy it. Trust me I'm a big spidey fan I got ever game made. Theres also the combat you cant use the tentacles. The game is easy to beat not very challenging like the ps3 or 360.
Excerpt: This really could be any one of the other countless Spider Man games, very generic and you get the feeling it's all been done before. Not even that pretty to look at. Glad I didn't buy it, thank God for rentals.
