  1. Ultimate Spider-Man is nothing more than a bargain-bin effort that would be over and forgotten in an hour or two except for the pointless required side missions artificially extending playtime.
  2. 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]

    Best spiderman game ever! I wish they kept the pizza delivery missions though.

    This is a really great Spiderman game, the action is in full force, theres a really awesome hub world to play around in, where you can just swing around town like spider man or venom. 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. Full Review »

    Great game. In my opinion this game is superior to Spider-Man 2 in terms of extra content. There are plenty of comic covers, costumes, landmark tokens, secrets tokens, races. and more to complete. The amount of content is large enough to keep you playing for a long time. Full Review »
