A vastly under rated game
on 19 September 2010
I am stunned that this game is not more popular. I had to look really hard to find this game and eventually paid over the odds for it, but was really excityed in doing the Spidey thing on my PS3. The game involves you playing through the 4 spideys; Amazing, Noir, 2099 and Ultimate to assemple pieces of a mythical tablet that Mysterio wants for himself to become a real sorceror. You taverse through the different prallel dimensions to do this.
One of the cool things about this game is that not every Spiderman is good/bad at the same things and you have to learn how to get him to fight the bad guys, whilst playing to his own strengths. Noir Spidey for example is rubbish at taking on villains head on and he needs stealth to surprise his enemies, 2099 Spiderman is great at leaping and flying so alot of his challenges invlove flying and web traversing.
It seems that the makers of this programme have picked the best things from Arkham Assylum and have unashamedly used these to enhance this game. A good example is the similar way that Noir Spidey dispatches his enemies by dropping down and hauling them up to dangle, rather than getting shot to pieces.
Most levels take around 50 mins to complete, but could easily take more depending on the difficulty chosen and the degree to which you are interested in finding the hidden items. So there is easily 10-12 hours worth of game and plenty of challenges and trophies to capture. This has been my first game bought since the summer drought of games and was bought on the spur of the moment, but well worth the money spent! (and I am not even a Spiderman fan)
