    The game is obviously geared most toward the younger set, but even kids like a bit of challenge, right? Despite its downfalls, the game has its moments.
  2. Never has a hero looked so stupid. As catastrophic as these missteps are, they pale in comparison to Spidey’s egregious video game blunder, Friend or Foe.
  3. It’s fun and humorous at first, but the lack of substance and challenge is a Spider-killer.
  4. If you can believe it, this is possibly even worse than the diabolical "Spider-Man 3." [Christmas 2007, p.83]
  5. Almost every aspect of Spider-Man: Friend or Foe falls flat on its face. As a fan of the sandbox style Spider-Man games, I must say I am deeply disappointed that Activision chose to go the easy route instead of giving fans another high quality game. Avoid this game at all costs; it's not even worth a rental.
  6. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe isn’t an awful game. It’s just a terribly forgettable game.

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

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. Full Review »
