Excerpt: I first heard about Spider-Man: Friend or Foe back when Spider-Man 3 was released for the Xbox 360. There was a promotional page located on the back of the game which indicated Spider-Man: Friend or Foe would be a new twist to the legend.
Conclusion: This is a very demanding time for gamers. Interesting releases seem to becoming out every week, and this trend will continue the rest of the year. Is Spider-Man Friend Or Foe worth your gaming dollar? No, I don’t believe it is.
Conclusion: For those looking towards rectification from the movies, this is not your stop. Spiderman: Friend or Foe is a children’s title that will put adults to sleep, either through the tedious battles or juvenile dialogue.
Excerpt: A word of warning for serious comic book fans anxiously awaiting Activision's latest web-slinging interactive adventure: Unless you're a seven-year-old, or a hopelessly bad gamer, swing right past Spider-Man: Friend or Foe.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is A gaming publisher having the name rights to a super hero such as Spiderman is considered as a blessing for many. Such big names already have a huge fan base and followers so advertising and exposure issues are set aside.
Excerpt: Spider-Man: Friend or Foe’s premise is quite unique - it forces Spider-Man to team up with some of his greatest foes in an effort to find out just who has been brainwashing some of Spidey’s greatest foes with shards of the asteroid that collided with Earth in the Spider-Man 3 movie.
Conclusion: The lightness of gravity allows you to string
together additional attacks before your enemies
hit the ground. And you can also hang in the air
to dodge simultaneous attacks that are coming in
Excerpt: As the game begins, Spider-Man is enjoying a calm New York night when Green Goblin, Venom, Sandman and Doctor Octopus appear out of nowhere. The fight begins. The good Goblin (from the movie “Spider-Man 3”) helps Spidey out. Just as they seem to even the score, new creatures appear.
Pros: Two-player options, combat mode, great Spider-Man cartoon graphics, variety of sidekick options, lots of button-mashing action.
Cons: Camera angle problems, button-mashing battles can get tiring, basic gameplay is not especially Spider-Man-esque.
