Excerpt: “Hey, you got your superhero into our open-ended game!” “No, you got your numerous sidequests into our comic book/movie tie-in game!” While I can only imagine that this is a dialogue that Rockstar and Treyarch might have in the back hallways of E3, it underscores one fact: If the Marvel Universe and...
Excerpt: It seems that the recent trend in videogames is to actually put effort into making games licensed from movies. In recent years, we've seen an improvement in a genre usually littered with half-ass dreck and quick-fix cash-ins.
Pros: Large, impressive city to swing around, Improved combat and swinging mechanics, Random crimes to solve, Lots to find and do
Cons: Graphics could use more polish, Random crimes are limited in variety, Animation and voicework is a bit stiff
Excerpt: Enter Spider-Man, who for almost 40 years, has run around in tights, and made them seem fashionably acceptable... if you were into comic books. There was the early cartoon with the ever famous theme song; some live-action made-for-TV movies in the 70’s (bellbottoms...
Summary: When I reviewed the first Spider-Man game back in 2002, I concluded that it was the perfect example of Summer fluff. It was action-packed, full of explosive effects, and easily forgotten immediately after it was put back on the shelf.
Conclusion: In closing, I would like to say that the game is acceptable for the most part; I only recently started using the advanced moves after beating the game, and having the whole city to play in is a lot of fun.
Pros: A whole big city to run around in, Spidey powers, RPG stuff, lots to do, Black Cat has huge knockers;
Cons: Repetitive, terrible voice acting and bad tie-in missions, repetitive, a lot of things you won't bother with, isn't all that it could be, and repetitive.
Conclusion: The game also has the most remarkable 3D map – press the back button and you’ll get a sort of satellite view, with four levels of zoom, and a key gives you the position of almost everything you’ll need to find, you can even see the teeny-weeny cars way below.
Pros: Amazing amount of freedom., Huge play area and draw distance., The web-slinging and combat moves are cool., Loads to see and do., Excellent use of the movie license., Brilliant map., There’s nothing else quite like it.
Cons: Spidey’s movement lacks subtlety., Sometimes things move so fast that the camera can’t keep up., A few difficult boss battles., The non-playable character models lack detail.
Conclusion: Though I still feel the game lacks a bit of charm and has an empty feel at times, it is still a masterful production that deserves plenty of credit. Now, where's that Spider-Woman script I was working on…
Conclusion: Dennoch: Für Actionfreunde, die dem Superheldengenre nicht gänzlich abgeneigt sind, ist Spider-Man 2 dank der hervorragenden Spielmechanik dringend ans Herz zulegen. Es ist das bisher beste Videospiel mit dem blau-roten Netzschwinger.
