    This is an excellent game. Good use of the stylus with Venom. The stylus use otherwise seems like a bit of an afterthought (oh, let's throw in a quick stylus stroke here!) Difficult boss battles make the relatively short storyline still take some time. Were it a bit longer, it would earn a 10.

    exellent game. like the 2d/3d style. more games in this caliber should be in the works more than 3d titles for this sytem. this is a hard core 2d gamers machine. long live 2d!! imagine a castlevania game in this style, or even in the style of contra shattered soldiers for the ps2!?!? that would be a castlevania fan dream come true! and mine!

    Story was a little short and did not follow the ultimate storyline, but everything else was an A.

  1. The touchscreen sequences for Venom are well done and use that feature of the DS to the gamer’s advantage. But the Spidey sequences under-use the touch screen, and the sound can be a little tinny at times, when heard through the DS speaker.
  2. The game is varied enough and contains enough special moves to give you a few runs though without feeling like complete repetition.
  3. This is definitely the ultimate superhero experience on the DS, making the most of the dual screen for presentation and gameplay and a valiant attempt at touch screen control.
