    Good:
    -Tight control
    -smooth character movements -Stealing from Metroid Bad: -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

    -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)
    -overall experience=tiring

    Nice effort but no cigar. Reviewers giving 90 are too generous or they are well-paid.

  1. Web of Shadows takes Spider-Man into new territory with an enjoyable action adventure romp that's over too soon.
  2. 80
    Once again, DS owners prevail. Console owners have to deal with a sloppy 3D experience, but on the handheld we get ourselves a tight and satisfying experience that has nothing to do with the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or Wii games of the same name.
  3. Sadly, for as great a game as Web of Shadows is on the DS, it is over far too quickly and leaves you with no immediate reason to revisit anytime soon.
