    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.

    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.

    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.

    This is a great iOS action/adventure game. 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! Collapse

    This game is extremely fun and I would recommend it to anybody! 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. Expand

    "Spider-Man: Total Mayhem" is fun. Anyone who enjoyed the Spider-Man movies will find the same enjoyment in this nicely-adapted game. The only thing that disappointed me was the length of the game: it was a bit too short. Expand
