    A vibrant, eye-popping superhero disc that has more style, wit and compelling gameplay in its first 10 minutes than most games have in their entirety.
  2. Though the game isnâ??t perfect, the addicting story line and amazing presentation are definitely welcomed. If Treyarch had kept the bigger city and more advanced web swinging techniques, Ultimate Spider-Man would have been the definitive Spider-Man game.
  3. The game sure looks fantastic but is it fun to play? Without a doubt, although it could do with some fine-tuning here and there.
  4. 80
    Brings the super stylish world of Marvel comics to life with beautiful and enjoyable results, but ultimately spins a regrettably short Spidey story-mode experience.
  5. A liberal splash of new ink and some gameplay innovation manage to revitalise this slightly over-familiar franchise. [Xbox World 360]
  6. Bringing Peter Parker back to his roots was appealing to me at first, but the so-so gameplay and the undeservingly high price of purchase makes Ultimate Spider-Man for Xbox more of a rental.
  7. One word describes Ultimate Spider-Man: disappointment.

The novel style graphics are fantastic and make you feel as though you are playing a comic book, which is awesome for me. I have also played Web of Shadows and Shattered Dimensions (Which are also amazing), but this game has a special place in my heart. Expand

    This game is probably one of the best superhero gaems out there. It combines the two storys of Spiderman and Venom seamlessly, while you play This game is probably one of the best superhero gaems out there. It combines the two storys of Spiderman and Venom seamlessly, while you play through both of them. The fighting system has been greatly improved from the one in Spiderman 2, while still keeping the basic formula. There are a ton of bosses, and you have to use your intuition instead of just brute force when you fight them. The graphics are amazing looking. Expand

    Great game, the best game about the spider after the Spider-man 2000 and if you're torn into which version to play between the consoles, thenGreat game, the best game about the spider after the Spider-man 2000 and if you're torn into which version to play between the consoles, then I advise you to choose Xbox, because on it the best graphics and play is just nicer than on PS2 or Gamecube Expand

    I was really getting into it, then something terrible happened. I beat the game. This was incredibly short, I beat in almost one sitting. I was really getting into it, then something terrible happened. I beat the game. This was incredibly short, I beat in almost one sitting. After the game ends, they try to boodt the replay value by adding a GTA style "cause as much destructoin as you can without getting killed by cops" game woth Venom. Sorry, but that and collecting tokens for costumes isnt my idea of a good time. Expand

Oh, the fun I had. 8 yr old me had a beutiful time with this game, sometimes it got me in trouble with my older sister for hogging the system, other times my parents looked like they were gonna put my talent in the Guiness World Records book. Anyway...
    Gameplay: 7/10
    When I was younger, the gameplay was newest of the century. But when I got older, more free roam games got in my head, so I have to give it a 7
    Graphics: 10/10
    This game introduced a new graphical style where things looked like they were in a comic book. A good pat on the back to the creators
    Wish I could play this game: 20/10
    Sold my XBox, and it went to my friend, Erin. I've been thinking about just getting another one

It's as if the designers have taken a checklist of the best features of Spider-Man 2 and deliberately set out to break each and every one. Most notable is web-slinging, which is now a chore rather than a joy. This game is a crime. Expand
