5.0 out of 5 stars Trust your Spidey Sense - BUY THIS!, 16 July 2004
This review is from: Spider-Man 2: The Movie (PS2) (Video Game)
Superb. Outstanding. Remarkable. Amazing.
All words that could be used to describe Spider Man 2. This really is an excellent game well worth your £30. If you played the first game and enjoyed that, this game is a dead cert. The control system has been revamped over the first game, including improved jumping, improved combat and perhaps most importantly, improved web swinging. Rather than your web attaching to the sky, as in spideys first PS2 outing, this time your web must hit an object such as a building, a tree or even a helicopter. All this makes for more 'realistic' movements for the web head. It really is a great improvment. You can also purchase upgrades for various things, such as swing speed, combat moves and so on.
Now, on to the game structure. As most probably know the game has undergone a complete revamp, now no longer fixed missions only, the game adopts a free roaming mode around a brilliantly modelled New York City. This allows you to go wherever you feel like going, including landing on the street, something we were deprived of in previous outings. You can also scale any skyscraper in the whole city, just be carefull when jumping off, as even spidey can't survive a fall from the top of the empire state building (although find me one person who won't try this at least once!). The game is split into chapters, each with different objectives to complete, eg visit Mary - Jane, or Complete Daily Bugle Assignment. Outside of these missions you must earn hero points. These are earned by helping citizens with their problems such as stolen purses or armoured cars being shot up. It really is vast and really is a lot of fun.
In closing, refer to the opening line of this review. Pick a word. All apply to just how great a game this is. If you're a fan of the films and of the previous games, you will love this. Well worthy of your cash and well worthy of 5 out of 5.
