    Whether you're a die-hard Spidey fan or just looking for the next great action-fighting game, Edge of Time excels in every aspect of game design with solid combat, fun navigational puzzles, and one of the best cinematic presentations of any Spider-Man game to date.

    The story is tight and fast-paced; the presentation really shows Beenox's improvements over the past few months; and the gameplay is engaging, even if there's not much actual web-slinging to do this time around.

    Even though the challenge of the game has not matured, it is ideal for anyone looking for a great Spider-Man experience.

    Much like Shattered Dimensions, Spider-Man: Edge of Time features some sharp looking visuals, solid voice work, nicely presented cinematic cut scenes, and core gameplay that works well in short bursts.

    In Spider-Man: Edge of Time, I feel like a clipped bird, just wanting to fly a little further and you do get the feeling that you are stuck in a huge cage which is more maze like. The gameplay is sturdy but I yearned for that open world experience of the previous Spidey games which did not limit where I could go or explore.

    This is my first time playing one of the "SpiderMan" series of games and upon starting the game up, you are greeted by Spiderman 2099 carryingThis is my first time playing one of the "SpiderMan" series of games and upon starting the game up, you are greeted by Spiderman 2099 carrying Spiderman 2011's lifeless body, then you are jumped into the game by crawling along the air ducts while the credits come up "The wasy the credits are displayed is amazing".

    So, based on my verdict, This game is very polished, but is let down by the repetitive and predictable gameplay

    Dont get me wrong, this is a good game, but the gameplay is a little bit predictable at times.

    The good points of this game are:

    1. Excellent boss battles (Especially the "atrocity" boss)
    2. Buy new powers with Golden Spiders.
    3. Good graphics.

    The bad points of this game are:

    1. Repetitive
    2. Very predictable
    3. Gets very boring after a long period of time

    So, based on the strength of the graphics and the sound with the bad gameplay and repetitveness, i would score this game a 7/10 (75%).

Even though I expected more from this title, this isn't a bad game, but there is a lot of room for improvement. Full Review »

    Feels way to similar to Shattered Dimensions which was a good game that got a little to repetitive at the end. Here it is even worse becauseFeels way to similar to Shattered Dimensions which was a good game that got a little to repetitive at the end. Here it is even worse because you don't have the different variety of all the other Spider Men. Here you only have Spider Man 2099 and Amazing Spider Man. So you don't have the awesome stealth moments and cool atmosphere of the Noire Spider Man. Without him the game gets WAY to repetitive to quickly. The story is quite good and the voice acting is top notch but that doesn't make up for a pretty boring game. Full Review »
