  • Summary: The legendary hellbound comic anti-hero comes to life. Straight from the blockbuster arcade game, this home version kicks it up a notch with ever more features and modes of play. Up to 4 players can battle in the "death match-style" Battle Royal Mode or choose a computer controlled teammate to take on Team Battle Mode. All your favorite characters from the Spawn series are faithfully recreated in the ultimate death match challenge. Expand

  1. A couple of hiccups, but they don't stop Spawn: In The Demon's Hands from being one of the best multiplayer games on the market.
  2. Along with the frenetic gameplay, Spawn: In the Demon's Hand conjures up a deliciously wicked bevy of visuals for the owner's viewing pleasure.
  3. Unfortunately Spawn does not hold enough meat to keep me satisfied.
  4. 68
    Rather than follow one of the many plot lines within the comic series all of the heroes and villains get poured into a murky soup of repetitive group battles.
  5. What makes it so disappointing is because it has such a great premise, stars a groovy character, and looks so damn good that you want to almost cry when you realize that the wily demon of mediocrity has left his fingerprints all over the game.
  6. 50
    The most fun you'll have with this one will come from the first few tries - after which familiarity will rapidly breed contempt.
  7. We see poop in the palm....The 3D third-person shooter offers a visceral thrill that's part unprotected skin in operating blender and part tongue in the gears of life's cruel machinery, a series of unforgivable blemishes damns this beast straight to hell.
