Spider-Man: Edge of Time
28 January 2012
Excerpt: If you want to make a good video game based on a comic book, you need to let the players feel like super heroes. In Spider-Man: Edge of Time, you feel like Spider-Man. All of Spider-Man’s signature traits are here, the webs, the strength, the combat acumen, the speed and agility, even the wise cracks. And while some games struggle to capture the wit of the comics, Beenox has nailed it with this game.
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: In Spider-Man: Edge of Time, Activision was hoping to build on the success of last years Spider-Mad: Shattered Dimensions. While Spider-Man: Edge of Time is not a sequel to Shattered Dimension, it does follow two of the Spider-Man characters established by Shattered Dimensions - The Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099. From the moment the game starts the presentation, graphics, and characters all feel familiar for those that played Shattered Dimensions.
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.
Excerpt: Like last year’s Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (reviewed here ), which cast you as four different Spideys, Edge of Time lets you play as two: the present's Amazing Spider-Man and the future’s Spider-Man 2099. Unfortunately, fewer heroes isn’t the real problem with Beenox’s second stab at the franchise. It’s that this ho-hum time-travel adventure is more style than substance.
Pros: +Terrific voice-acting from a franchise-appropriate celebrity cast., + Slick production values.
Cons: ? Will the year ever turn 2100 in the Marvel Universe?
Excerpt: Edge of Time starts off absolutely perfectly - right in the middle of modern-day Spidey versus a giant roided-up Anti-Venom who kills Peter Parker, but the 2099 incarnation sees this and does whatever he can to prevent Parker’s death while also preventing the head of an evil corporation from taking over his world. It’s all so exciting, and I like only getting small pieces of the storyline because it makes you interested in what’s going on instantly.
