    Spider-Man 2 is a classic that will be remembered as one of the best games on the XBOX, and with good reason. The open world is beautiful, and swinging around in New York cannot (and has not) even come CLOSE to being replicated. The story isn't a movie tie-in, and is all the better for it. The boss fights are great, and there are different random crimes as well.

The boss fights are great, and there are different random crimes as well. However, while the combat is good, the game is SO BORING after it's completed, as the crimes are repetitive and lazy. But don't let that put you off. Play the game in small sessions; then you realise how great the game is. Expand

  1. What I think is the most significant about the game is that it takes the movie's story, but it doesn't deviate from the gameplay that makes Spider-Man so fun. And this time it's very open ended.
  2. What Spiderman 2 boils down to is a lot of "Hell yeah!" excellence with just a little "Aw, damnit" thrown in for good measure. It's still an excellent game, and it's a superb example of how a movie license should be treated, but in the end, it probably won't crack any top 5 lists.

    Between the massive boss encounters and hours of swinging around Manhattan, you're in for at least a week of play.
