Excerpt: Spider-Man, Spider-Man! Does whatever a spider can! Spins a web, any size! Catches thieves, just like flies! Look Out! Here comes the Spider-Man! Close your eyes for a moment and imagine your life as it is now, then think of how cool it would be to have superpowers!
Excerpt: There's an unwritten law somewhere that games based on movies always seem to fail miserably at being games. So when this version of Spiderman, a game based on a movie based on a comic, came out, I had some misgivings about how good it might be.
Pros: Large cityscape environments, Excellent lighting and texture maps, Bruce Campbell makes the training mode fun
Cons: Weak camera/control systems, Not a whole lot of exploration
