    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. The true letdown, though, is that the master villains can still be supremely frustrating to defeat, requiring several replays and exhaustive bouts of highly patterned attacks.

    If you aren’t a big Spidey fan you might want to skip this because of the repetitive nature of things, but fans of the comics can’t go wrong picking Ultimate Spider-Man up.
  4. While it undoubtedly falls short in certain key areas – the imperfect controls, the repetitive side missions, the slightly bland engine... – it will certainly be more than adequate for any Spidey fan feeling the need for some web-slinging.
  5. The PC version of Ultimate Spider-Man finally gives Activision a chance to make up for Spider-Man 2, but it doesn’t quite live up to it’s ‘Ultimate’ moniker.
  6. It’s best to go at these extra missions and goals in moderation though, as playing them for an extended amount of time can get boring.

    One of those games that never realize their full potential because of design miscues. [Jan 2006, p.47]

Installed Utimate Spider-Man on my company PC, with the I hate video games, tried the PS2, bought over a dozen games, gave it all away... Installed Utimate Spider-Man on my company PC, with the Logitech Dual Action controller....and haven't been able to stop playing! This video game really not only brings you back into the comic book, it brings you to NewYork and turns you into the hero you admired growing-up as a small boy. If you haven't played this game yet - go out buy it and become the Ultimate Spider-Man!!!! A total 10 out of 10, this is more than just a video game it's an experience of a lifetime..... I've experienced the thrills of Skydiving, but never before have I gotten to fly through an entire city, get ready to run, jump, swing and let go of all fears. Expand

    Duracion: 12 hrs

    La version de PC de este gran titulo me decepciono un poco tiene muchos bajones de FPS en ciertos lugares, el juego esta muy bueno yo lo habia completado en PS2 hace mucho tiempo alrededor del 2007 el titulo apartando lo tecnico es uno de los mejores juegos de Spiderman debido a su forma de comics que nos va relatando la historia lo cual lo hace interesante no recuerdo su duracion pero me gusto bastante no es muy largo ni corto tiene alrededor de 19 capitulos y cada uno es muy divertido nosotros manejamos a Spiderman en una ciudad totalmente libre pero lo bueno es que tambien controlamos a Venom el cual debera escapar de un grupo de cazadores que trabajan para Bolivar Trask que necesita el symbionte, como Spiderman nosotros debemos ir derrotando villanos y salvando a las personas de criminales e ayudar a la policia local mientras que Venom debera ir cazando personas para ir alimentandose y enfrentar algunos villanos y al propio escuadron de soldados especiales que envia Trask la banda sonora es espectacular por eso suma puntos positivo, bugs no he visto solo alguno grafico de las cinematicas pero nada que impida jugar. en resumen: Lo recomiendo ya que es uno de los mejores juegos de Spiderman clasico puede correr en qualquier PC pero esta un poco mal optimizado pero lo lleva igual.

    Ventajas y positivo
    Buenos graficos para su epoca y actualidad
    Jugabilidad decente y comoda
    Historia interesante
    Banda sonora buena.
    Se puede controlar 2 personajes (Venom y Spiderman)

    Puntos negativos

    Sistema de misiones un poco tosco
    Optimizacion bastante fea pero no tan mal.
    No ofrece muchos detalles la ciudad hubiera estado bueno algunas misiones secundarias o un modo historia con Venom

    Nice comic book presentation.

    Swing mechanics don't work correctly and melee fighting can be annoying. Open world is a little bit empty.

    Checkpoint system is crap. It is not fun doing the same parts until you do everything right.

    Frustrating and you don't lose anything if you don't play.
