    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. 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.
  4. It brings the comic book to life right in front of your eyes.

    Thank God that they got it right this time. Spider-Man 2 made me want to blow chunks, but this game is pure gold. Thank you Activision!

    Amazing game, all too short. A credit to cell shade graphics.
