The last Spiderman game I played was unlimited for the PS2 and I loved it. When looking at this game it reminded me allot of unlimited that's why I bought it unfortunately although fun at time I found a game that's filled with irritating flaws.
There is fun to be had within the game you can travel the city as you please reducing crime in the cities areas by fighting gangs, stopping getaway cars etc there are also loads of time trials, and fighting tours you can do, you can even choose the order in which you do the missions.
There are the main game missions that are supposed to go along with the film but as you will find out (apart from fighting sandman and venom) they are hit and miss in that department.
There are the mad bomber missions which you will find yourself not only fighting bad guys but disabling bombs by pressing buttons in the right sequence.
The lizard missions which I found to be the most interesting missions in the game where you learn about doc Conners and how he becomes the lizard and also craven pops up to kick your butt.
The scorpion missions which introduces you to scorpion and the rhino. You even get to play breifly as scorpion.
They are also the gang related missions which you see you fighting off the three main gangs within the city and later find out it's the kingpin calling the shots. This leads you into a fight with him and is the most annoying fight you will ever have in any game the as the only way I found to beat him was hit then retreat, hit then retreat until you fill you power bar up and unleash that on him. You have to fight him twice in this way and last over an hour. Just thought I'd warn you all.
Then there's the daily bugle missions which more or less sees you going around taking pictures of stuff like, spidey stunt men and UFOs!
So there is allot to work through.
The fighting is the same old routine kick, punch, wrap someone in web but in some cases you feel too weak to take on even the smaller of bad guys and you will find yourself hitting a couple of times then running away then going back for another couple of hits you constantly repeat this throughout the game. It's not so bad when you have the symbiote suit as your much more powerful and you might not even notice this but you will when they strip you of the suit and you go back to your normal self cause you feel like you're the one who needs saving.
a part form the fighting side of things there is the irritating button sequences you have to put up with the are so fast you just don't have time to think at all and you will find yourself having to do time and time again until you perfect it. Really irritating and I mean smash your pad in half irritating.
The graphics aren't that great either you don't notice it as much when your swinging around at high speed but all you have to do is look the cut scenes there terrible looks like it's just been ported over from the PS2 there definitely not PS3 worthy.
All that said the game is only worth average marks it's an ok game with plenty to do but far too irritating and repetitive. Oh and if your thinking of looking out for the special edition where you can play as the green goblin save your money it's the version I have and your missing nothing just a couple of time trials you can do with him and that's it.
