  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. 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. Spiderman Friend or Foe is obviously an attempt to cash in on the holiday rush. It doesn’t have the variety necessary to keep anyone playing for long, and the presentation is average at best.
  5. 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.
  6. Though this isn't actually a movie game, the voice acting talent in the game is pretty good.
  7. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe isn’t an awful game. It’s just a terribly forgettable game.

    The multiplayer was surprisingly fun as the single player was at times repetitive. 7/10

    Very enjoyable with a lot of variety. I personally love the sarcastic nature of this game.

    Suprisingly fun... I grabbed this in a rental, and I'm having a good time with my wife. The difficulty is not high, but that's Suprisingly fun... I grabbed this in a rental, and I'm having a good time with my wife. The difficulty is not high, but that's really what we're looking for. Simple, beat-em-up fun. She's not a fan of screaming and remote-throwing. Expand
