  1. Spider-Man 3 doesn’t reinvent the Spider-Man games or action games in general. But it’s hard to beat the feeling of swinging across Times Square, free diving down, and then saving yourself at the last minute.
  2. I enjoyed swinging through Spider-man 3 even though I felt that game tasks were becoming more and more repetitive as I progressed.

    If you're up to it, this is certainly the best Spider-Man game that's graced a PC yet, even if it's also one of the toughest.
  4. By now, Spider-Man should be swinging for the fences when it comes to his own video games -- no other game character can even move like Spidey. None. But instead, he's leaps and bounds behind less superheroic fare, and he's fending off too many inner demons which, in this case, are castrated frame rates and multiple bugs choking up his web sights.
  5. If you cannot resist the temptation to web-swing through NYC, don't forget to bring a few tranquilizers to numb the inevitable pain from dealing with terrible frame rates, crappy camera and not exactly consistent single-player mission design.
  6. The game has plenty of problems and if you have a gamepad controller that is the preferred control device, as the keyboard and mouse just don’t cut it.
  7. When you consider that the game is far too ugly to be shown on an unforgiving monitor - cel-shaded Ultimate Spider-Man looked infinitely better - and that it asks for an unjustifiable 6GB of HD space, and that we couldn't get more than 30 frames-a-second out of a fairly hot PC... Well, it doesn't seem like the best way to spend £30. Our advice would be to avoid the PC version of Spider-Man 3 like a spunk-filled bowler hat.

    Spider-Man 3 is a brilliant PC game, but the consoles are FAR better

    Unbelievable game. Can't believe it has such a low score. Deserves a 10 for sure!. Amazing graphics and gameplay is FUN FUN FUN. I don't knowUnbelievable game. Can't believe it has such a low score. Deserves a 10 for sure!. Amazing graphics and gameplay is FUN FUN FUN. I don't know what RayF was crying about, I have a mediocre gaming rig, and I run at 60fps all the time (vsync enabled). Even better if played with an xbox 360 controller.

    This was actually the first open world Spiderman game I ever played and not Spiderman 2 like most people, maybe thats why I have a soft spotThis was actually the first open world Spiderman game I ever played and not Spiderman 2 like most people, maybe thats why I have a soft spot for this game. I played it on xbox 360 years ago when it was new and I loved it, I recently got it for the PC and I'm not sure if it's the same levels or gameplay since it has been nearly 10 years since I first finished this game, but I think it is the same console version of the game since some missions seem familiar. Years ago I would have rated this game a 10 but now that I have been playing it again on PC version I will rate it an 8 just because the AI is very stupid, I remember it being better, that includes citizens just ignoring Spiderman or just acting akward most of the time. Besides that this game is one of the best Spiderman games out there highly recommended for any TRUE Spiderman fan. Expand

    Great step forward from the first and second PC spider-man games (that based on movies).

For many, it may seems incredibly boring, annoying and unprocessed, but I did not cherish much hope and knew what I would be dealing with, I knew that this game was needed only to warm up interest in the rental of the film of the same title, and therefore I was not very disappointed in the result (moreover, the game was remembered by me since childhood, when I first passed it). And yet, it is impossible to close your eyes to the obvious shortcomings in the form of a disgustingly staged plot, cutting eyes even for that time cutscenes and inconvenient management. Yes, it's really bad.

    What pleased me was the gameplay - playing this, I really feel like the spider-man from the Sam Raimi movies. Flying on a spider web around the city was a special pleasure - perhaps the most enjoyable part of this game in general. What is good - the time you need to spend on the passage - only about 12 hours.

    In general, I liked the game, but if you suddenly did not play it as a child, then I do not advise you to play. All the disadvantages of the game that the nostalgic atmosphere smooths out so well will be so conspicuous that you probably won't be able to enjoy playing it.

Trying to be Spider-Man 2 but bigger, Treyarch & Beenox botched the final movie tie-in game with terrible character models, even more camera issues and uninteresting gang side quests. Tobey Maguire, the butcher of lines is joined by other members of the movie cast in making people cringe at their performance. For a positive, I have to say that certain boss battles were interesting but fall flat in the grand scheme of things. Expand
