    If you've got a 7-10 year-old who enjoyed the movie, feel free to tack another star on to the score; otherwise, consider yourself warned -- this is not your father's Spider-Man 2.
  2. The problem with Spiderman 2 is its lack of depth.
  3. Why didn't the PC get the GOOD version of Spider-Man 2? Who decided to make an entirely different and decidedly mediocre version of the game specifically for Windows users?
  4. 45
    After three hours (if you can make it that far) of crappy controls, mediocre visuals, and boring and generally unimaginative gameplay, you'll actually be glad to have finished the game so you can return it or burn it and move on with your life.
  5. This game can be completed, from start to finish in two hours. I am not joking. What's more is there's no incentive to go back and replay anything in this game. All in all, the PC version of this magnificent film, with an equally magnificent console game does not measure up to either side of its namesake.
  6. This game just feels like an insult. Or maybe a practical joke. [Nov 2004, p.80]
  7. The game sucks in every sense of the word. Sure, Bruce Campbell narrates the tutorial but that is the sole tiny nugget of goodness buried in this huge pile of wasted game.

    This game is a bit poor on the PC, but if you have an XBOX then get it on that. Its way better on the XBOX, I actually really like the game.

On the XBOX I give it an 8. The game is still a little short. Expand

    Activision. I'll say that again; ACTIVISION. Remeber the name ladies and gentleman. That is the company that made a superb game on Activision. I'll say that again; ACTIVISION. Remeber the name ladies and gentleman. That is the company that made a superb game on console then proceeded rip out everything that was good about it and release it to the PC community. Without mentioning it was a 'different' version. I always thought it was the console owners which developers and distributers treated with distain? PC users are people with long memories and short fuses and I for one won't be forgetting this slap in the face from Activision. Stand alone, this game merits a 2 or 3. Given that I can only think they released this castrated, shadow of a game to extract money from the PC market, for the first time I find myself genuinely upset that the MC rating system does not have negatives. Ludicrously abhorrent. Expand

    What the hell is going on with Activision? Why they put in the game trailer those magnificent images and in the final a PC CDROM logo? How What the hell is going on with Activision? Why they put in the game trailer those magnificent images and in the final a PC CDROM logo? How can they have courage to charge that thing they called official game of the movie, I spent almost a month looking for this game, and I WANT MY MONEY BACK. Expand
