4.5 So what went wrong? Oh yeah, I remember... DugsyBear | 04/07/2007 | See all DugsyBear's reviews (1) After seeing the franchise ruining tragedy that was 'Spiderman 3' at the cinema... after being mind numbingly confused at Tobey Maguire's constant dancing... after crying when a huge American flag appears behind Spidey as if to say 'God Bless America', I had hoped that the game was going to be something special. After all, the 'Spiderman 2' game was incredible. How wrong I was...how very very wrong, and the problem lays with the choice of developer 'Vicarious Visions'. Of course the last Spiderman games 'Spiderman 2' and 'Spiderman: The Movie', were developed by Treyarch and Activision accounting for thier constant improvement and high quality. This time around though these teams concentrated on the X-Box 360 and PS3 versions of the game, leaving the development of the PS2 version a pathetic, twitching, glitchy and frustrating outing that no self-respecting gamer will endorse. I spent around and hour swinging around this game trying to figure out what to do until I realised that a major bug in the game (and I don't mean our protagonist) means that the main mission can't continue and I'll have to start ALL OVER AGAIN. So I lost a good 4 hours of my life, and to be honest I should've just threw it in the bin there and then, because what you get in the game is just a poorer version of the far superior 'Spiderman 2' game, graphically and in terms of playability. And have I already mentioned all the glitches and bugs? Spiderman repeating the same puns within the space of seconds as you swing around NY, villains regularly becoming invulnerable as a glitch means the way your meant to kill them can't happen and people on the street suddenly walking through anything, you, a car, a building?!?!? This kind of shoddy workmanship is unforgiveable and if you're smart you'll give this one a miss. There is one negative which also serves as a strange kind of plus, the game is RIDICULOUSLY short, meaning that the travesty that is Spiderman 3 is over very quickly, and not a moment too soon. I've been considering buying a PS3 for a few months now and I'm afraid that for me, this is the final nail in the PS2 coffin. Hopefully the PS3 version of Spiderman 3 will be something different, if not...theres always GTA 4 in October. In Rockstar we trust.
