    This game is nothing but a side scroller, do not get it if you are looking to experience the game that is advertised for the PS3 and Xbox360 because you may be very disapointed....I was.

    dont buy this game for ps2. its like them really old spidey games and nothing like spiderman 2 open world. the company have done no work on the ps2 ver and just wanna take ur money. although if you like old school sega genesis spidey then buy but dont expect spiderman 2 type gameplay.

    although it has a lot of heroes and villains and has a lot of action. i personaly think that they ripped us off cause its not the same as the others. the thing that dropped its rating for me was the graphics. i wanted to play the 3D version not the 2D version. 2D sucks!!!!!!!!!!

    A welcome throwback to the Spider-Man games of old. More than a few times I found myself using the D-pad to hop around an enemy and reminiscing about playing Spider-Man on my SEGA Genesis. The action is simple, but the quirky humor, Spidey's trademark verbal jabs, and slick style make the game a lot of fun to play.
  2. For those in search of single-player fun, Web of Shadows is an entertaining PS2 title, while not offering a whole lot of functions. There is absolutely no two-player action or any modes other than playing through the storyline with three different skill levels.
  3. Web of Shadows isn't as immersive as some of the 3D Spider-Man titles, and its repetitive combat and level structure could turn off some players in the long-term. But it's a solid rental, no question, and should definitely be played by fans of the GBA version of Spider-Man 3.
