  1. The DS version of Spider-Man 3 is a lot like the DS version of Spider-Man 2, but with a new, slick touchscreen interface that, while nice, does nothing to address the problems the last game had.

    After a couple of mediocre attempts to capture Spidey's movie magic on the DS, it seems that Vicarious Visions has finally gotten it right. [July 2007, p.95]
  3. As usual, Spidey delivers a decent handheld experience that will be great for kids.
  4. For gamers looking for something more substantial or impressive it has little to offer, but Spider-Man 3 DS betters the Wii, PS3 and 360 versions, without any need for their technical muscle and big-budget gloss.

    The game can be fun and rewarding and does a pretty decent job at not massacring a movie franchise, but can grow tiresome rather fast if the fighting bores you.

The touch screen controls are great, it has great graphics, and it's fun to beat up all those thugs. However, it's on the short side, and after you beat it, the combat gets pretty old. Full Review »

Like many I'm sure, I was worried about all the fighting being done on the touch screen, but I must say that Spider-Man 3 really nails an awesome gaming experience. It's not the greatest action game of all time, but it is the best one on the DS. Really fun and worth it just for the touch screen experience. Full Review »
