    A vibrant, eye-popping superhero disc that has more style, wit and compelling gameplay in its first 10 minutes than most games have in their entirety.
  2. Though the game isn’t perfect, the addicting story line and amazing presentation are definitely welcomed. If Treyarch had kept the bigger city and more advanced web swinging techniques, Ultimate Spider-Man would have been the definitive Spider-Man game.
  3. It brings the comic book to life right in front of your eyes.
  4. The true letdown, though, is that the master villains can still be supremely frustrating to defeat, requiring several replays and exhaustive bouts of highly patterned attacks.
  5. Combines dazzling graphics, rambunctious gameplay, and an intriguing story that does justice for this Marvel icon Did I mention it’s $30? Yeah, that ain’t so bad either.

    Unlike "Spider-Man 2," which has a total joke on the PC, Ultimate Spider-Man is a perfect translation of the console version. Only it looks a whole lot better on a PC.

    If you aren’t a big Spidey fan you might want to skip this because of the repetitive nature of things, but fans of the comics can’t go wrong picking Ultimate Spider-Man up.

    The best in Activision's Spidey lineup, packed with comic-book excitement. [Holiday 2005, p.78]
  9. The voice acting is very solid, and the too-few story based missions make the game completely worthwhile.
  10. Crippled in the transport over to the mouse and keyboard control, Ultimate Spider-Man just doesn't hit par. However, hook up a gamepad and swinging around New York as Spider-Man becomes a fantastic experience.
  11. It’s an improvement over the two movie adaptations as it is unquestionably faithful to the comic series. I haven’t seen another comic book video game this faithful to its license.
  12. I really wish that when companies port console titles that they put some effort into understanding the PC gamer perspective.
  13. Easy to pick up and play and immediately enjoyable.
  14. While it undoubtedly falls short in certain key areas – the imperfect controls, the repetitive side missions, the slightly bland engine... – it will certainly be more than adequate for any Spidey fan feeling the need for some web-slinging.
