  • 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 does a fantastic job bringing back the enjoyment of the pre-film tie-in Activision Spider-Man titles. The storyline is great, the presentation is top-notch, and other than a bit of repetition, the game is a fun romp for the whole family.
  2. Most importantly, it's great fun. [Issue#17, p.93]
  3. But for their kids, Friend or Foe is excellent preparation for more complicated action games until they graduate to Teen games thanks to the depth of the combos.
  4. Friend or Foe is a generic game which is salvaged by the co-op play. For new or young gamers this is a great title, but for those who have been around the block, there's nothing to see here.
  5. Friend or Foe’s single player is anything but a good time. You’ll be mashing buttons, setting up some cool looking but otherwise unimpressive combos and rolling your eyes through some of the most obvious boss fights since the NES days.
  6. Spider-man: Friend or Foe is another title that clearly isn't made for experienced gamers, and certainly won't please anyone aged in their teens or older.
  7. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe isn’t an awful game. It’s just a terribly forgettable game.

    A really, really good game for Spider-man fans of all ages. Even if you aren't really a spider-man fan, you'll still like the game because of its action, it's creative plot, the ability to play as villains, and it's family friendly nature. Anyone with a young or old Spider-man fan should get this game. Expand
