  • Summary: Mysterio, the Master of Illusion, is using his powers to change New York City into his very own sinister amusement park. Lucky for the Big Apple, he's forgotten one thing: you're Spider-Man, and for one power-hungry super-villain, that means playtime's over.

  1. A fantastic and playable miniature Spider-man that’s fun and visually appealing. What more could you ask for in a game?
  2. 90
    Each web action has its own distinct sound, and swinging through Manhattan on a web line is feels and sounds just right.
  3. 89
    It offers an imaginative, well-conceived design wrapped up in a very pretty package.
  4. [It] has a steep learning curve and isn't terribly lengthy, but outside of these main gripes, it is also a solid platform for Marvel's Spider-Man character.
  5. Spidey looks great in this format, the animations are excellent and the game play is solid.
  6. It just performs exactly like a superhero-based game should, delivering solid gameplay, a smooth learning curve, and enough variety to keep the levels fresh.
  7. Short-lived, but a decent portable Spidey game. [Oct 2001, p.158]

    One of the best 2-D action games ever created and the 2nd best spidey game ever only to the first spidey on Playstation. Tremendous fun, longer that most games in the genre with replay value, and very addictive. The polygonal spiderman moves very smoothly and looks incredibly slick. Must have for any GBA owner. Expand

    I've been playing video games for 14 years now and my mom got me a Game Boy Advance when I was 7 and Spider Man: Mysterio's Menace to go with it which was my very first video game and I had no idea what it was when my mom handed it to me I'm like what's this? lol! I've been a very regular video game consumer ever since! This is an old game but I still remember playing it, the story was good, the graphics and levels were amazing, the graphics look dating by todays standards but for a platformer it has really good level graphics, the music is good and the game was a lot of fun to play. But I continuously played it for years and never did beat it I don't know whether I was bad a video games at the time or if the game was difficult, I'd say it had moderate difficulty. But I do really miss playing Mysterio's Menace I wish they would re-release it on Nintendo 3DS. But if you still have a Game Boy Advance get this! Expand

    Not as good as the later GBA Spidey games, but it's still a damn good one. It is short. but the upgrade system is so near perfect, you will want to play the 7 stages again to get them all. The great thing about the upgrade system is that you have to figure out in which order you have to get them. The only real problem I have with this game is that the game doesn't save, it uses passwords. Even with its problems, this is a must own. Expand
