  1. The PlayStation 2 version of Spider-Man 3 is a depressing combination of ugly to look at and dull to play.
  2. It's so dumbed down that it might actually be more appropriate for children if it weren't for the T rating on the package. Just play the 360 version. Actually, scratch that, just go play Spider-Man 2 instead. It's worlds better than this.
  3. This is one Spider-Man game even Aunt May won’t approve.

    Spider-Man 3 on the PlayStation 2 is everything gamers have come to dread about movie-tie in games. The game takes liberties with the plot and packs shoddy controls, terrible graphics and lame voiceovers.
  5. The graphics are shocking, the sound does little to add to the experience, the storyline is mediocre and the controls are unfriendly.

    Totaly overrated, a complete downgrade from Spider-Man 2. The graphics are worse than Spider-Man 2! It also lacks the ragdoll physicsTotaly overrated, a complete downgrade from Spider-Man 2. The graphics are worse than Spider-Man 2! It also lacks the ragdoll physics Spider-Man 2 had, the citizens look like giant bugs, when you go to the Sky the game looks like Star Fox, for snes! This is just a rushed game for a horrible movie, i rather play Sonic next Gen or SuperMan 64. Full Review »

    I remember being pretty disappointed about this title after thoroughly enjoying the previous title (probably my favourite PS2 game of all timeI remember being pretty disappointed about this title after thoroughly enjoying the previous title (probably my favourite PS2 game of all time at that as well). In this title, the music was terrible, simply jumping in and out incoherently in relation to the environment you were in. The gameplay was hit and miss, sometimes good but you could tell with the movements of Spider-Man that the movement was nowhere near as fluid as the previous one - this game felt rushed. The graphics was the biggest downgrade, absolutely awful, dull and lifeless compared to the previous titles. Really surprising really, as this was a medium I thought at the time they should improve on as time went by.

    On the positive side, I do remember enjoying the transformation to black Spider-Man and reaping the benefits of the awesome power he had - particularly fun when fighting enemies as it really made a huge difference. The story was also alright too, a lot of villains in this one if I remember correctly.

    All in all, the game was nothing special for me. It was nowhere near as good as Spider-Man or Spider-Man 2.
