When a deadly symbiote invasion devastates the streets of New York City, only Spider-Man can seize control and bring the city salvation. From the game's direction and outcome through to Spider-Man's destiny, Spider-Man: Web Of Shadows puts control in the player's hands.

Gamers decide when to switch between the agile Red Suit and powerful Black Suit, whether to ally with Marvel's honoured heroes or ferocious villians, which of Spider-Man's abilities to upgrade and what missions to undertake in order to protect Manhattan from certain annihilation.

Overhauled combat system provides deepest arsenal ever: For the first time ever in a Spider-Man game, players can take the fight vertically and combat foes on city walls, where only Spider-Man holds the advantage.

Gamers control their experience: At a moment's notice, gamers can switch between the grace and agility of Spider-Man's Red Suit and the brute, savage power of the Black Suit.

    Players can customise their ideal Spider-Man: Players will earn experience in multiple combat disciplines, allowing them to custom-design their ideal Spider-Man.

      Every choice counts: Dependant on gamers' actions and decisions, a morality meter will gauge whether citizens cheer Spider-Man on or run away in fear. Spider-Man's actions as hero or vigilante, based on choices at key points in the game, will affect how the fate of New York vs. alien invasion ends.

        Side with Marvel's greatest heroes and villians: From Luke Cage and Wolverine to Vulture and Electro, players control who will ultimately aid them in the fight to rid New York of its alien symbiote.

          A living, breathing New York City under siege: Players are now able to destroy store fronts, demolish vehicles, and pick-up anything along the way to use as a weapon.

           Not as bad as it COULD have been.

          Having played the first three games based on the movie and only bothering to complete the first two, I was expecting this game to get caught in the web of the terrible pathway their games have been heading lately. But as a matter of fact it did NOT.

          It may have been because it was not based on the movies or because the producers decided to make the game what it once was when it started. Fun, not too difficult and whitty.

          It also has a bit of an "Infamous" vibe to it as well in regards to the choices and the publics perception towards you. Overall gameplay is pretty refreshing, especially with the upgrades which are quite handy.

          I thoroughly enjoyed it, it can be completed in about 7-10 hours (solid gameplay). This game deserves more credit than it's receiving, due to the fact that it seems as if they went back to the drawing board on this one to make it a game that people would actually care to complete.

           good, but...

          This is a great improvement on the previous movie tie-in spiderman games. The story line and characters are good and although the voice acting is terrible it doesn't spoil the experience really. This is definately a step forward for the spiderman game series, the controls are tighter, the combat is better and the terrible camera issues have been resolved...mostly.
          However there a few things which annoy me about the game 1) once you finish the story there's nothing to do, you can't free roam your only option is to restart the whole game losing all your upgrades etc 2) there are frequent glitches and the frame rate isn't the best 3) my game froze on a few occations, but that could just be my copy i guess lol. Most of the annoyances from the previous titles have been rectified but some are still there, along with some new ones.

          Overall this is a must buy for spidey fans and if you enjoyed the previous games but felt a bit let down, like me, this is definately for you. The best spidey game out there! (Apart from ultimate spiderman, in my opinion).

           Good or Evil you decide

          To start with this game is a great improvement to Spiderman 3. Unlike Spiderman 3 web of shadows has a totally new and original story for the game which helps break the game away from any restrictions from a movie or comic deal.

          You're thrown into the game with the city in chaos over run by symbiotes shield solders trying to hold them back while you're trying to find MJ. After a quick intro you're taking a few days into the past where the current events started to unfold.

          After this intro part of the game the next hour or so you will meet up with Luke Cage who will help train you for the game, doing various missions/ tasks and training spas etc and once you have completed these tasks Luke Cage will join your allies list which is a new addition to game that allows you to summon certain characters you meet through out the game into battle to help you take care of the games many enemies which can prove quite useful.

          You have total free roam of the city ground a sky there are a lot of random crimes that pop up on your map and can help stop if you choose to. Some of these crimes help you complete optional bonus missions such as stop 10 bank robberies etc in previous games where stopping gangs you've never really got much out of it but yeah doing so will gain you valuable experience to help upgrade and obtain new movies.

          In previous games transporting someone to a hospital used to just appear on your map as an extra job to do in web of shadows though you won't find this instead while fighting enemies if a civilian gets in the way or is trapped in a car while is explodes then you must try and save them and get them out of harms way or to a hospital adding a more heroic feel to the game rather than people in need popping up on you radar.

          The graphics have improved from the last instalment as well rather than trying to look to serious the game has a nice comic book/ cartoon feel to it that works really well.

          Another good thing with the game is that you can either play down the path of good of evil. Through out the game you will have to make choices which will lead you down one path or another meaning you could essentially play through the game at least twice to get both sides of the story.

          The biggest improvement to the game has to be the combat its very fast, there are a lot of moves to learn and upgrade and both you normal suit and black suit have their own moves in addition to this you can web zip onto your enemies and fight in the air which is fantastic. No longer do you have to worry about falling to the ground while fighting flying bosses and enemies if you do start to fall you can web zip back up to that enemy and start pounding him again with little effort.

          The game does have a couple of faults. 1 the camera now and again decides to have a mind of its own and will keep looking up to the sky easily corrected by pressing the R3 button. Easily solved but still annoying. 2 there are a few graphic glitches in the game enemies will sometimes get trapped in walls or cars or even turn invisible altogether.

          Overall though this is a fantastic game, fans won't be disappointed and will welcome the new improvements. The game looks and plays great and is a lot less irritating and fun than the last.

          i bought this because my 6 year old son loves spiderman and from the talk about this game it sounded like it would be a massive improvment on the spider man 3 game..... it really isnt.

          there are some good points, the combat is a great improvment but still isnt that great, and the fact you can change into the black suit when you want is great. The bad points.... it looks awful, some really bad graphics, we really need a world that looks as good as GTA with the combat of somthing like this ( which still isnt quite there yet) and somone need do make a world that will generate a lot of different storys for players each time they play, then i will be happy playing a spiderman game.

          if you are like me and are buying games like farcry, littlebig planet, fable2 , midnigt club, dead space, fallout and bond then stay away from this. if this is for somone younger then still stay away, the spider man 3 game is £9.99 on here and much better value, or just wait towards xmas and see if this goes down. ide give it 1 star but my son is enjoying it so im giving it 2.

           i like it
