  1. The highlight of the graphics is undoubtedly the recreation of Manhattan. While it was impressive in Spider-Man 2, this sequel takes it to unprecedented heights.
  2. If you are the type of gamer that likes a good button-masher, and can work past the occasional which-way-is-up camera angles, then this game should have tremendous appeal for you.
  3. You can get through the main story in a casual weekend of playing, and the extra mission objectives aren't exactly compelling. Tack on some seriously under whelming visuals and a problematic camera, and you're left with a game that has its moments, but is ultimately disappointing, even for true believers.
  4. The focus of their next Spider-Man game should be making the combat feel as authentic to Spider-Man as they've done with the web-slinging. With a focus on improving the combat, the A.I., and more epic cineractives, Spider-Man 3 would have been a great game.
  5. If you're a huge Spider-Man fan, this game may be for you. Anyone else will be content renting it and amusing themselves for a few hours exploring the Big Apple and returning it before the dullness sets in.
  6. Spider-Man 3 might dominate the box office, but its glitchy video game counterpart totally tanks...Shoddy graphics, poorly configured character models way-too-easy or too-hard difficulty levels and strange lag times -- on the ultra powerful PS3 no less.
  7. The web slinging...now feels mundane thanks to a randomised upgrade system and the stupidly unpredictable camera. [Aug 2007, p.107]

    This is spider-man 2 totally revamped. Now better than ever. The game has totally been tweaked and corrected from the previous franchise and now it is the diffnitive spiderman game. A little frame rates but you can hardly notice. The stories are better and the game is longer what else can you want! Perfection? yeah right just get the game and try it out for yourself. It even better than the movie considering that thier is more plot. Expand

    I just got a Ps3 for my birthday and my wife picked up this game for me. At first I was worried due to all the bad reviews, but after playing it I was very pleased. This game is total fun. Just one more example where I should largely ignore the 'official' reviews. I am not sure why it gets bashed soo badly, it's a solid game, well worth your money and a lot of fun. Expand

    The gam eis what you would expect from a SM game. the city looks great spidys moves are fluid. The filler missions are more entertaining. I have seen a few issues with collision detection, but other than that nothing major. The flaws are a result of rushing a title out to meet a movie release. Expand

    This game isnt great but it is very good. it has great graphics, 10 great storylines, great button mashing sequences, great side missions and an imense free-flowing city. but i cant help but feel that there is something missing. when playing the game it doesnt feel solid and i am also angry at the fact that there are no scenes from the film as rewards. but dont let my review stop you from getting it as i am only listing the bad points. you will be missing out if you dont get it!!!

    I'm not an idiot, I know what games are as a standard. Spiderman 3 boasts an impressive open world and a large amount of challenges within the open world which will keep you playing for a good while. Unfortunately the games games story is the only thing holding it back from the comic book game we all want. It takes lots of different pieces of story and mashes them together to make a inconsistent pile of poo. The gameplay can be good but eventually becomes a repetitive mess. If you're going to go out and buy this. Free roaming is where the fun is. Expand

    This game has the worst PS3 graphics ever seen, sure it may be better than the PS2 and Wii, but as i said worst PS3 graphics ever. The people seem very lifeless and the character models are very rusty. The game is pretty mush a button bashing game and other thing is that none of the Ten storyline are not any good and does not make any sences. The camera angle in this game can be poor at times as well. This game Feels unfinish and is worst buying nor renting. Expand
