  1. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is easily one of my top 5 games of 2010…so far. The level of energy and excitement and the wonder of what could possible come next kept me playing for hours on end.

    The straight-to-the-point levels and the four different dimensions bring a whole new level of gameplay to the Spider-Man franchise that is a breath of fresh air that it needed.

    Your enjoyment of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions will depend on how much you agree with Bobby Kotick's assessment of the previous entries in the series. If you truly believe they sucked, skip Shattered Dimensions as it's more of the same (just without the open world New York). But if you enjoyed them, you'll want to give the game a shot as it's another entertaining Spider-Adventure that's more linear than recent games in the series, but still a lot of fun.
  4. The plot is bland and often corny, but the gameplay is mostly solid and enjoyable.
  5. Its best ideas may be borrowed, and it tends to repeat itself fairly regularly, but Beenox's latest is still a generous and witty button-basher.
  6. The combat, and it's worth noting that this makes up the majority of the game, is superb. It's not particularly deep nor clever, but it's immensely rewarding, as too are the scripted first person sections which exist purely to, yes, let you punch things in the face.
  7. While I think Shattered Dimensions looks great (it really does), the substance found here is lacking. Combat is a little bland and repetitive, and stage design doesn't really allow for so much web slinging as it does web-zipping, by having edges or platforms that you can shoot across instead of literally swinging through a city, town or open area.

    great game! easily beats god of war 3 in length, fun, and well everything else. sure you're thinking, wheres the gore? but i don't think you'll have a problem with gore being replaced by smart writing and the choice of four spider-man's throughout! Expand

    fairly long game, very enjoyable might I add, although some of the levels drag and, repetetive dialog bores the gamer. A great SPIDER MAN game, the best since Ultimate Spider-Man. I fully enjoyed Shattered Dimensions. There are only MINOR flaws, and the game was incredible. 9 Expand

    right off the bat im a huge spidey fan and this game is awsome so the story is that mystrio one spiderman foes try to steel this tablet if he get all of the tablet well he becomes powerful so then spidey and 3 other diffrent spiderman from diffrent dimesion to back get all the fragments before mystrio does so the fighting in this game is decent and switch from diffrent spidermans one is from the future another is the venom spiderman and last a sneaky noire spiderman you can upgrade all of them the graphics are awesome and for each of the dimension the graphics kinda change too the feel of spider dimension ending is okay but this game would have been cooler if they add side quest free roam of the Manhattan this game would have been a 10/10 but no so a 9/10 Expand

    Overall, I had a blast playing through. It took me around 12 hours and I could go through it again. Nothing was that big of a game breaker except the Noir stealth. Itâ Expand

    This game has alot going for it and if your a spider fan then you've probably already played it but it has a little for every gamer. I feel this is probably the best spiderman game today. The game is fast and fun and is split up into 4 different worlds each with there own spderman. Noir is good if you like to sneak around. There is alot of jumping and fighting in both black suit spidey and comic style spidey plus you have 2099 which even has a cool future look to it. There is also a lot to collect and you will have to play through it a couple of times to catch everything in the game. The game also plays well I like the ps3 version for controls I tried the xbox360 version and it just didn't seem as responsive in the game but once you get used to the controls it easy pretty easy to play. Some controls are wierd though so I guess that would be a minus you also have some really annoying boss chases like the dead pool one as he does play by play while you try and get passed these big waves. This game is a must buy even with these few faults and beleaive me you will get your money's worth here. Expand

    As far as comic games, this is the best stand alone character ( as opposed to multiple character fight games since BATMAN ARKHAM ASYLUM! It is also average and most comic adaption games suck (IRON MAN of HULK anyone?)...Turns into a button masher but I love the story and graphics...controls and gameplay are pretty tight...It could be better with more unique game play...the play has been done...It was worth the reduced price at Gamestop!
