    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 thenThe good is that thisgame has a Spider-man that is the most fluid in combat that I've ever seen.

Possibly the worst voice acting in a video game this decade. Expand

    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 inThe 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.

    The game even that is fun, the graphics are nothing else, the choice of good or bad way is a positive point of the game, but he's a little repetitive, and the story is not as engaging

  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.
