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

    Spider-Man 2 is an average game with some good ideas. The game captures the essence of Spider-man well but the game is too small and there are quite a few design issues that as a user made me very frustrated.

    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 This is one of the most irritating games I've ever played.

Other than that, there's no reason to waste your time or money with this title. Collapse

    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.

  1. Easily the most entertaining handheld game featuring web-head. Activision has certainly done well in giving Vicarious Visions their licenses once again, as they've created a fun game that not only uses the DS's features to its advantage, but is also a great launch title.

    A reasonably solid action game with some extremely annoying but often fun elements. There's no doubt that with some ingenious multiplayer modes and some creative thought behind a better set of touch-screen features that Spider-Man 2 would have faired much better overall as an entertaining piece of software on the Nintendo DS.
  3. The game never develops into a solid experience, thanks to a host of design flaws that clash directly with the impressive technology.
