    Like Spider-Man himself, this game was absolutely amazing. The combat was fluid and web swinging was almost perfect (it stuck to the sky most of the time). Venom was awesome and I enjoyed fighting him seeing as he is my favorite Spidey villain. I love switching between the red and black suit whenever I want. If only Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus were in this game.

    The good is that thisgame has a Spider-man that is the most fluid in combat that I've ever seen. The bad is that it takes awhile to get there because you have to be taught by Luke Cage (I know, very stupid) to unlock your powers. Once you have ever thing down pat to make you an ultimate bad ass spider-man, you get to play a weak story and extremely repetitious breaking up of gangs and then symbiotic creatures from outer-space. Possibly the worst voice acting in a video game this decade. Expand

    Pros: fun gameplay, city is huge, web-swinging is fun, good story. Cons: not exactly deep, repetitive combat, running is too sharp, city is boring, bad graphics, weak cutscenes. OVERALL: enjoyable in parts but once you finish the game you have to start a new file. and there should be more things to do in the city.

    The best thing to do in this game is by far the swinging around. It's fluid, responsive and looks good, animations are top notch. There's more moves to pull of such as wall running, crawling sliding etc it's all good... That is until the glitches kick in, and completely ruin the experience. You can be soaring through the air at breakneck speed, only for Spidey to come to an instant stop in mid-air, witness his world load before him, then drop down vertically. Other times, he may just disappear altogether requiring a restart or load. Levelling up is incredibly easy. Unfortunately, it requires you to collect 2000 tokens around the city and it's boring, but makes the game better once it's finally done.
    Combat is pretty good, nothing major though still the best in Spidey games so far. Red or black suits have different moves.
    Voice Acting is rubbish (except Black Cat) and the story is dull with basic red or black suit choices. Basically, it's a decent game. Best Spidey game anyway.

    Gracias a una historia sencilla pero profunda, bien desarrollada e interesante, unos gráficos muy ágiles (destacando en los combos y la variedad de los mismos), un control muy fresco y cómodo en su derecho, interacción y una VERDADERA diferencia entre el traje rojo y azul y el negro, este se convierte en, quizás, el mejor videojuego del superhéroe.

  1. Combat has seen some minor improvements, but the missions you're required to play and the side-quest stuff in the city are still pretty bland encounters for the most part, and it's those areas that really need to see the most improvement for the next Spider-Man installment down the line.

    There’s enough great gameplay here to make Web of Shadows recommendable for Spider-Man fans. The sheer level of glitches in the game, however, manages to take the fun factor down several notches.
  3. Web of Shadows is an improvement over previous Spider-Man titles, but still lacks the punch we expect from such a popular movie-based intellectual property. A poorly told story coupled with mediocre and often repetitive action sequences have thwarted this titles chances of blockbuster glory this Christmas.
