  • Summary: Spider-Man: Friend or Foe challenges players to defeat and then join forces with notorious movie nemeses including Doc Ock, Green Goblin, Venom and Sandman, and other classic Spider-Man characters. Players embark on a global quest to overcome an evil threat, by controlling Spider-Man and one of numerous Super Hero or Super Villain sidekicks, as they master unique fighting moves and styles while switching between characters to execute team combos and defeat foes. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe features a unique co-op mode in which a friend can join the game at any time and take control of Spidey’s sidekick as they battle through the game side-by-side and replay favorite levels.

  1. The Nintendo DS version of Friend or Foe is by far the most different, but it’s also the most in line with previous Spider-Man games on its respective platform. Friend or Foe’s addition of enemies and solid coop mode make it a solid addition to the Nintendo DS’ Spider-Man lineup.
  2. A likeable, challenging and entertaining portable action game that has its share of problems but is fun enough for young Spidey fans to enjoy.
  3. I loved Spider-Man: Friend or Foe on the console and the DS version offers a fun and challenging smaller scale version of that same game with some clever touchscreen puzzle elements thrown into the mix.
  4. 49
    Fans of the webslinger will be disappointed at the toned down, clunky controls. The villains turned ally premise is kind of neat, but proves to be more of a frustration than anything.
  5. All told, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is an abomination, an abysmal excuse for a game. Virtually every aspect of this blatant grab for cash is flawed in some significant way, and the makers of this game clearly churned out a severely sub-par product in an attempt to milk the franchise name in the most reprehensible of ways.
  6. 40
    This game seems to be yet another victim of "let's concentrate on making the console versions good and just crank out a portable version in order to generate a few extra bucks."
  7. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe's levels can be played cooperatively in multi-card mode, but with such boring gameplay I cannot recommend one, let alone two, purchases.

    An acceptable set of Spider-Man, is not open world, but you play with partners, both heroes as villains, a basic history, not surprisingly, also with a simple gameplay, you have to keep fighting the enemies coming, and sometimes it appears some mini-game, just to vary a little phases, in the end, is not such a good game as well.
