    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. 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.
  3. I really like the diverse gameplay between Venom and Spider-Man. This makes the game a whole lot more interesting because they each have their own style of play, which helps break up any repetition that might form.
  4. The Spider-Man franchise goes back to its comic book roots, and produces one solid adventure for the web crawler which could be too short for its own good.
  5. Even with its difficulty problems, the only really bad thing I can say about this title is that its way too short, and there’s way too little to do.
  6. The campaign mode could be just a little more robust. [Dec 2005, p.109]
  7. Once the contentment of seeing the impressive 'ultimate'look of the Spider-Man characters has faded and the comic book flair has become old news, it's still going to be a very bitter pill to swallow. [Dec 2005, p.118]

My onlly gripe...which might be because im not that far is that you cant do web rodeo on people or grab them and throw them off buildings like you did in spiderman 2, thats the only thing thats lacking from this one.

Two different story modes, one with spider man, and one with venom, awesome graphics, and fun and challenging gameplay. including some well designed missions, this is one Spider man game fans wont want to miss. Also reccommended for action fans as well. Expand

    Hey its either a smash (10) or trash (0), and I found this game floating in a cess pool. It has the same game play as the 2nd spiderman but Hey its either a smash (10) or trash (0), and I found this game floating in a cess pool. It has the same game play as the 2nd spiderman but with cell shaded graphics (which I do love), but lacks any other special qualities that make it, well new. The new feature which allows you to switch to Venom through out the game was nice, seeing as how Venom was the only good part of the game, but even still the experience was ruined when you couldn't play as him as much, swing from buildings, and constantly look for nourishment for the pesky life draining suit. With spider-man the creators decided to polish this turd of a game by making him 15 yrs of age but even worse the wit of a 6 year old with head trauma from being beatin with a wiffle bat, to quote spider-man, "sweet sassy malassy" (*cringe*), or my favourite "why couldn't I just for once fight a giant size huggy bear who gives kisses" (*spew*). With that said the experience I gained through playing this game to the end, it is left to say, play something else, unless your used to disappointment. Expand
