    The fighting and avoiding mechanics are a delight to watch and effect as a player, while the high quality production makes the game a must-own for any gaming or Spider-Man fan.

    Ultimate Spider-Man: Total Mayhem ticks all the boxes then binds them together in a big web of gaming goodness. If you're a Spider-man fan or are just looking for a great iPhone action adventure then pick this up now.

    While Spider-Man is a typical Gameloft offering right down to the weak storylines and questionable voice acting, it also contains the most important one of all: it's a polished, console-style game that's flat out fun to play.

    Spider-Man: Total Mayhem is an easy to pick up and hard to put down action-brawler that not only does justice to the comic book hero, but to the game genre itself.

    As crisp and vibrant as the game looks, there's little to elevate this above far cheaper and more interesting games designed around the controls - rather than shoehorned into them.

    Spider-Man is both one of the best action games on the App Store right now as well as the best superhero game you can get for the iPhone.

    For casual fans, this is still a great action brawler but keep in mind that it can get a little bit repetitive after a little while, despite the many characters and environments available. However, it is certainly the best superhero game out there right now for the iPhone.

    It's a not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination, just a slightly poor use of the license.

There are a few control problems, but other than that, the game is great. There are plenty of things to do even when you have completed the game, and with its arcade action, you'll want to play through it on different difficulties. The achievement system is broken, and even if you are signed into a Gameloft account, the achievements will not work. The achievements are a very small problem, as they really are not an integral part of the game. Even if you are not a Spider-Man fan, you will love this game! Full Review »

You get to beat up bad guys and climb walls and swing through cities just like Spider-man - what's not to like? There are a few offbeat things, though: 1. It's way too short. 2. The story is really boring, and the description of how the psycho bad guys broke out is headache-inducing. Full Review »
