Summary: Like most superheroes, Spider Man has walked a rough path when it comes to video games. It wasn’t until the late 90s that the web-head escaped a checkered resume of samey 2D beat-em-ups and graduated into the glory of 3D polygons and textures.
Excerpt: Spider-Man is back and can once again web sling to his heart’s content, with an entire open city at his fingertips. The plot is an epilogue to the movie of the same name, which finds Spider-Man up against a host of powerful enemies.
Excerpt: The original Spider-Man title was a solid game. Spider-Man 2 handed in solid gameplay improvements and turned an 93% for its review. Spider-Man 3 matched the efforts of its predecessor but didn’t innovate much, netting it a still-respectable 88%, but then something happened.
Conclusion: If swinging around Manhattan isn't your thing, then look away now, because I'm about to start climbing sky scrapers and webbing hoodlums in my spare time thanks to the brilliant Ultimate Spiderman from Treyarch and Activision!
