One word: ANNOYING!
on 16 July 2013
The title says it all really. This game is so VERY frustrating..
Being a MASSIVE Spider-man fan, I decided that I had to purchase this game despite the mixed reviews I had read. How bad can it be, right? It IS Spider-man after all!! Boy was I wrong..
The game had potential; the trailers made it seem like such an epic game about the 4 different Spider-men from various Spidey dimensions. The storyline itself was OK. But the repetitiveness of the game lets it down in a BIG way. Every level is the same: Fight a bunch of minions, have a small fight with the big boss, then back to the minions, then back to the boss, get the fragment.. so on. The only difference is what Spider-man you are playing as. Whether you are playing as Noir or Amazing Spider-man. There is really not a lot of change between the 4 as the trailer suggests. It is literally just: Beat up the never ending amount of bad guys until you reach the big boss at the end of the level. Not only is it boring, but it is also ANNOYING.
The game is such a mess. The combat system is terrible. The big bosses have an insane amount of health and can take pretty much ALL of yours with one punch whilst you have to keep punching and punching and punching before you can even THINK of getting the health bar down by an inch.
Graphics? For a PS3 game, the graphics are pretty bad. I'm not usually one to care so much about graphics as long as the game is fun and playable. But, this game is neither fun or playable. AVOID!
Spider-man Shattered Dimensions has left me angry and frustrated more than anything. The ONLY redeeming quality of this game IS Spider-man. He is a funny guy. He made me giggle on more than a few occasions. But that unfortunately wasn't enough to save this game..
I am currently playing on the hardest difficulty and am just about to reach the last level. Has it been fun? No! It really has not. The ONLY reason I have not sold this game yet is because I want to get my full moneys worth and unlock as many trophies as I possibly can. But this game is *without a doubt* one of the WORST (if not THEE worst) games I have ever played on the PlayStation 3.
If you want a good Spider-man game, try The Amazing Spider-man Game and/or Spider-man Web of Shadows.
