  1. Despite the rough edges, however, it is the Spider-Man character itself that makes Spider-Man: The Movie fun to play.
  2. On one hand, Spider-Man can perform a wide range of moves that are easily executed but on the other hand, the levels are generic and require keycards and backtracking, ugh.

    The controls for getting Spidey to do all these wonderful things are finicky and inaccurate at times, making our hero a trouble to handle in places where walls are electrified or there are dangers like harmful mist or falling rubble to avoid.

    Spidey's radioactive powers aren't enough to ward off poor collision detection. [June 2002, p.124]

    The game also suffers from way too many cheap hits and bizarre, maze-like levels with no basis in reality. [June 2002, p.86]
  6. Pocket Games

    Playable, but far from great. [Winter 2002, p.34]
  7. The game's plot doesn't follow the movie's, and those expecting a realistic, polished look to the visuals will be let down.
