While not quite perfect and a bit on the short side, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is absolutely amazing, especially considering the poor reception of its home console counterparts; any DS owner with a taste for brawlers owes it to themselves to pick this one up.

-smooth character movements
-Stealing from Metroid
-Tedious battles, even with new moves
-enemies lack distinctiveness, which makes the battles more tedious
-constantly regenerating enemies
(while your attack power stays the same, enemies grow stronger with more hit points. So battles last much longer. Tapping button endlessly makes the experience tiresome)
-Hard to distinguish entrance/path
-Environments look too samey (lack of variety in color and mood)
-Same music repeats over and over (music changes only when you encounter enemies/bosses but even that gets old quickly)
Nice effort but no cigar. Reviewers giving 90 are too generous or they are well-paid.… Full Review »

Having played every spider-man title on the DS, i can confidently state that this is by far the best of them all.
True, the game itself is a basic 2d side scroller (which is what works for this kinda game, tho some want that 3d malarkey), but the graphics are stunning for a hand held.
As well, the controls are solid, and loose enough to create some customizable combos to deliver web fueled ass kicking.
The games story is decent, although not winning any prizes. However, it is a bit short, but hey, its best to keep these kinds of games quick and simple.
All in all a great time and something you can get friends addicted to.… Full Review »
