    I remember playing this at a friends house and even though I only played it for a little bit I remember instantly loving this game. Spider-Man is my favorite super hero of all time, and I really wanted to own this game, but not until recently did I finally buy a copy that I played on my PS3. The main reason I didn't buy this game for so long was because I wasn't sure age had been kind to it, but I'm glad to say that age has had almost no negative effects on it! The gameplay and controls are still great and the game is still a blast to play. Like any Spider-Man game, comic, or movie one of the coolest parts about this is the villains you get to fight, and you get to fight some of Spider-Man's coolest villains in awesome and challenging boss battles. The story is very well written, and expertly captures the feel of the comics. I couldn't help but smile when I heard Spider-Man toss out hilarious one liners just like in the comics, and interact with other famous Marvel super heroes. This game is awesome and if your a Spider-Man fan this is a must play, sure it could be longer and it's got some issues with the camera, but what old game doesn't? Not only is this the best Spider-Man game I've ever played, it's also super hero game I've ever played, and it's one of my favorite games of all time. Expand

    The graphics are certainly dated at this point, but this game is still great. There are plenty of secrets and unlockables like costumes, game modes and comic covers to keep you going. The PlayStation version is the superior of the 5 versions of this game (DC, N64, PC, PS,GBC), so definitely pick it up.

    I remember playing this game a long time ago, but I think I can honestly say in my opinion that this is the best Spiderman game I've played, and that includes beating out Spiderman 2 and Ultimate Spiderman which many consider as the best Spiderman games, which I agree with. This game was so cool though, I never was able to beat it though, because I ended up getting lost somewhere. This game haves the best Venom out of anything, especially better than the Spiderman 3 Venom. Expand

    A game filled to the brim of non-stop action, web-swinging and wall crawling. One of the more striking points of the game is it's great plot and sound. Each level is fun and entertaining, making you not want to stop playing. This is accompanied with the voices which fits perfectly for each character. However, the game does suffer from clunky controls which can make it slightly frustrating at times. But overall with its close attention of detail to the Spider-Man universe and its awesome bonus costumes, this was a game needed to be created for not just Spider-Man fans, but for fans of the linear action genre as well.

    This is a really awesome game, and does a great job of representing the web head himself in 3D. this is by far one of the best super hero games ever made, witty dialouge, excellent graphics, great game design, good music (including the original theme!) and a great inclusion of all spideys friends, and vilains. The game plays out its cutscenes like a comic book, which was also really cool to see, and theres lots of unlockables as well (like comic book covers), which keep the replayability high. The only downside, is that the controls are a bit sluggish. not only that, but there are also some instances of a bad camera, that come up fairly often. regardless however, if your a fan of spider man, or action games in general, then this is an easy recommendation.

  1. Add to the mix that there are plenty of secrets to uncover, including cover art, character viewers, training sessions and even costume changes and you have a one loaded game worthy of high praise.
  2. Even with its twitchy control and funky camera angles, it's a top-notch action/adventure worthy of the moniker. Excelsior!
  3. There are so many extras, such as collecting new suits, new special powers, and classic comic book covers, that you will play this game for a long time.
