  1. The best Spider-Man game ever created. Never before has a game captured the form of Spidey, the ‘Spidey-ness’, if you will.
  2. Any Spidey freak will have a blast, and comics fans will delight in Spider-Man’s right-off-the-page super-powered antics. If you want the PC’s best superhero game, this is it.
  3. 77
    If you can put up with the need for a control pad and occasionally frustrating levels, not to mention the terrible save option, this really is a good super hero game.
  4. If you are a Spider-man fan, you will enjoy this program. If you aren’t, you will probably enjoy the camp elements of the program, the tongue-in-cheek dialogue and the superhero animation and graphics.
  5. The action is fast-paced and well-staged, and you really become absorbed in the virtual world of the famous arachnid. But two major deficiencies -- in the control system and the camera work -- almost succeed in ruining this title.
  6. This game takes about as much time as reading a few twenty-page comics...There aren't many superhero games that have even come close to the sheer reverence this game holds for its lead character.
  7. The awkward controls and camera in particular often take the wind out of the game's sails.
  8. Disappointing. With poor gameplay and embarrassing graphics, Spider-Man definitely looks better on the shelf than on your computer.
  9. 60
    The sloppy delivery across various gameplay departments hampers what had the potential to be an otherwise astounding product.
  10. Better than all the superhero drek we've been force-fed in the past, but the wait continues for a superhero PC game we can call a bona fide classic.
  11. PC players will somehow have to cope with the pathetic controls and camera in this obsolete game.

    Another cheap console port and I'm not surprised someone hired paid raters to push it's score up. You see where this gets you, game companies. Stop taking our money for these cheap shots. Full Review »
