  • Summary: Spider-Man: Friend or Foe challenges players to defeat and then join forces with notorious movie nemeses including Doc Ock, Green Goblin, Venom and Sandman, and other classic Spider-Man characters. Players embark on a global quest to overcome an evil threat, by controlling Spider-Man and one of numerous Super Hero or Super Villain sidekicks, as they master unique fighting moves and styles while switching between characters to execute team combos and defeat foes. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe features a unique co-op mode in which a friend can join the game at any time and take control of Spidey’s sidekick as they battle through the game side-by-side and replay favorite levels.

  1. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe, despite being aimed at a squarely younger audience, is a very fun game despite its simplicity. It doesn’t have the depth of something like say, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, but should provide plenty of fun for those looking for a simple brawler with characters from the Spider-Man universe.
  2. I loved Spider-Man: Friend or Foe on the console and the PSP offers a fun and challenging smaller scale version of that same game. While the overall game design is pretty much the same, the way the designers broke up the levels and made some subtle changes really created a unique experience, rather than simply rehashing what I had already done on the 360.
  3. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe for the PSP is not a bad game for younger gamers but it does lack variety and challenging enemies to fight.
  4. The problem is that the game is just too repetitive for its own good.
  5. There are some interesting moves to pull off, and co-op play over an ad-hoc connection might be fun if someone else around actually bought this, but it's not enough to save this PSP port from mediocrity.
  6. The two-player co-op prevents total shame. [Jan 2008, p.114]

    The game is obviously geared most toward the younger set, but even kids like a bit of challenge, right?

    It is highly addicting for me. You'll like the amount of characters you can play as as well as the graphics. The gameplay is fast and this game has high replay value. Expand

    This game definitely does not keep up with todays standards the boss battles were so easy even my 6 year old nephew found it pitiful.
