  1. Using a masterful combination of web shoot and D-pad combinations you can swing, or zip line vertically or horizontally across rooms. Everything feels so natural, just like a full-size console. Some of this can be attributed to the DS design but there is no denying that the design team put a lot of effort into the gameplay mechanics.
  2. The game is great, but I must warn you. It is extremely hard in the later levels. And it might not be for everybody.
  3. Its nice to see a launch title take advantage of all the bells and whistles of a new platform so well. Spider-Man 2 has really set itself apart from the long list of planned DS launch titles. I give it the thumbs up.
  4. It offers enough action for fans of brawlers to sink their thumbs and teeth into, and its controls are simple and intuitive enough for a novice to pick up and enjoy. Spider-Man 2 is one of the most enjoyable DS launch titles, and even outside of that thinking it is a tremendous effort and a fabulous game.
  5. This is a gaming thoroughbred that will demand you feed it over the holiday season. If your first priority this week is the DS, make your second one a copy of Spider-Man 2. It’s the game that will show your friends what the hardware truly can do.

    It's pretty good on graphics,but does not do well on game play. You need more to do like run around New York or something like that.

    This is one of the most irritating games I've ever played. The level designs are terrible. Endlessly running back and forth through a level trying to find a bad guy tucked away in some corner is an absolutely poor excuse for extending gameplay. The only reason I gave this a 1 is because Spider-Man is cool and he moves around the environment just like you would expect Spider-Man to do. Other than that, there's no reason to waste your time or money with this title. Full Review »

    Great launch title. Beautiful graphics. Lots of fun to play. This game is hard, but at least it's challenging.
