    Gaming Age is about the most non-credible 'reviewer' out there. With its repetitive sidequests, sub-par NPC (as well as main character) voices, hit-and-miss boss battles, short story length and ho-hum Spidey fight-skills, where the upgrades come in handy more for variety than necessity, Gaming Age gives this one a 91 and gives Ninja Gaiden a 47? Stupid. And an indoor Spider-Man Gaming Age is about the most non-credible 'reviewer' out there. With its repetitive sidequests, sub-par NPC (as well as main character) voices, hit-and-miss boss battles, short story length and ho-hum Spidey fight-skills, where the upgrades come in handy more for variety than necessity, Gaming Age gives this one a 91 and gives Ninja Gaiden a 47? Stupid. And an indoor Spider-Man 2 still has camera issues!!! 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.
