    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. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe isn’t an awful game. It’s just a terribly forgettable game.
  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. It’s fun and humorous at first, but the lack of substance and challenge is a Spider-killer.

    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. Full Review »
