This review is from: The Amazing Spider-Man (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I absolutely loved this game! I was in two minds at first as Spiderman 3 was such a let down. I played it for 10 minutes in HMV and thar was it. I was hooked. I bought the game the same day and played it for a good 6 hours that night.
This game see's the return of free-roam, something that made Spiderman 2 the amazing game that it was. I loved having the ability to climb the tallest building in New York and just dive off it. The control you have over Spider-man in this game is astounding. With a simple click of RB - I play Xbox - you can have Spider-man web zip to a building, run along the windows and then leap into the air while doing some acrobatics that would make Olympic gymnasts envious.
Another thing that completely kicks butt is the combat system - see what I did there? It's kind of Batman-esque. You can build up massive combo's and then unleash some amazing finishing moves. You can use the environment to your advantage by throwing all sorts of things at your enemies i.e. dustbins and gas cylinders - to name a few. You can hide in the shadow and perform scary silent take downs.
Over all, I give this game a 10/10. It's great fun and is a good follow on from the movie.
