Review: Spider-Man: Edge of Time (Microsoft Xbox 360)
7 December 2011
Summary: : Y’know, I don’t even know what to tell you here. I’m a huge fan of the Spider-Man character and franchise, I’ve enjoyed most of the games Activision has published featuring the character in the past decade or so, but even handed a game that features five characters from the franchise that I like and pretends Brand New Day isn’t an existing thing, I still didn’t like this game very much.
Excerpt: If you’re looking for a decent Spider-Man game, just go back and check out Web of Shadows or, for something more linear but a bit more tolerable, Shattered Dimensions has some good moments as well. Edge of Time simply does nothing to expand on a franchise that is in desperate need for a good game, especially with mechanics that have been proven to work so well outside of the typical trappings of a linear action title. There’s nothing amazing about this Spider-Man .
Conclusion: I truly believe that Beenox needs to re-look at how they develop their future Spider-Man titles because games like Edge of Time give me little reason to ever want to play another Spider-Man game again. Sure the game is competent, but worth recommending, not in the slightest.
Summary: Close to a year ago, Quebec-based developer Beenox, teamed up with Activision to hit a home run in video game form. They released Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions – a game which did a great job of creating a linear yet creative inter-dimensional experience for the well-know web-crawler and three other creative variations based around his core assets. Although the game wasn’t perfect, it was one of the best superhero games released in a while.
Conclusion: and Dead Island (and even Call of Duty’s Zombies mode). With the zombie game popularity still high, Capcom decided it was time to reintroduce one of the classic Resident Evil adventures, Resident Evil Code Veronica X, released on the PlayStation 2 back in 2001, as a downloadable Xbox Live Arcade title: Resident Evil Code Veronica X HD (they added the HD for the new high-definition graphical facelift).
Excerpt: Playing the roles of the Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099, Spider-Man: Edge of Time propels gamers on a high-octane, adrenaline-fueled adventure in which the heroic web-slingers must urgently work together across time to save each other and...
Excerpt: There’s nothing essential about Spider-Man: Edge of Time . Coming off last year’s moderate success experimenting with four different Spider-Men in Shattered Dimensions , developer Beenox have scaled back on just about every aspect. The end product feels less like a result of streamlining and closer to the outcome of annualizing something for no good reason beyond the fact that the publisher holds a licensing contract and should probably be doing something with it.
Excerpt: cuts down on the variety and makes the story more of a focus. The modern day's Amazing Spider-Man teams up with the 2099 version to stop a futuristic scientist from achieving his time travel dreams — namely going back in time to start up the Alchemax corporation, so that it (and he) would be an unstoppable force of world domination by the future.
Conclusion: Last seen swinging into a time portal towards the bargain bin, we’d recommend you save your cash until it gets there. Spider-Man: Edge of Time is not especially terrible but is far more mundane than a hero of Spider-Man’s ilk deserves.
