  1. Spider-Man 3 on PS2 is essentially the Wii version without the motion-sensitive control system. The end result is a game that pales in comparison to and would not be a suitable replacement for the next-generation versions.
  2. Vicarious Visions has taken the Wii version of the game which leveraged the control scheme of the system very well, and then ported it to the aging PS2 version. The result is a surprisingly tighter control scheme, but one that is less interactive.

    A decent enough action-adventure in the vein of GTA and Crackdown. Spider-Man's web-slinging abilities are depicted very well. Go for the Xbox 360 version, the rest are not worth your time. [June 2007]

    The only decent fights and objectives that are there follow the main storyline like a stalker - everything else is just busywork filler. [July 2007, p.112]

    Despite a huge citiy and a great swinging mechanic with which to get through it, Spider-Man 3 is repetitive and disappointing. [June 2007, p.90]
  6. The PlayStation 2 version of Spider-Man 3 is a depressing combination of ugly to look at and dull to play.
  7. The graphics are shocking, the sound does little to add to the experience, the storyline is mediocre and the controls are unfriendly.

    Dazzling. Absoloutely dazzling. The story is deep and amazing, though it strays from the movie's plot a little. (But hey, it's a Dazzling. Absoloutely dazzling. The story is deep and amazing, though it strays from the movie's plot a little. (But hey, it's a video game, right? ) As for the fighting style, it's even funner then the two first. (Who are also great games.) The boss battles are something I also enjoy. Swinging is something you never get bored of with this game. Web zipping is fun, too. There's some very funny lines thrown into there. Spiderman's got some REALLY good lines, and Bruce Campbell is back as the HILARIOUS sarcastic narrarator guy! The graphics are totally gonna blow your mind, man! The second was really free roaming, right? You enjoyed it a lot, didn't you? YOU WANT MORE, DONTCHA? Well in this game the city is 2.5 times bigger. How's that for free roaming? Overall, the game is worth the money and it's AMAZING! Expand

    Totaly overrated, a complete downgrade from Spider-Man 2. The graphics are worse than Spider-Man 2! It also lacks the ragdoll physicsTotaly overrated, a complete downgrade from Spider-Man 2. The graphics are worse than Spider-Man 2! It also lacks the ragdoll physics Spider-Man 2 had, the citizens look like giant bugs, when you go to the Sky the game looks like Star Fox, for snes! This is just a rushed game for a horrible movie, i rather play Sonic next Gen or SuperMan 64. Expand

    Spider-Man 3 isn't as good as Spider-Man 2, but it is still a great game, as far as graphics go it's not as good as other games on the systemSpider-Man 3 isn't as good as Spider-Man 2, but it is still a great game, as far as graphics go it's not as good as other games on the system environments and character models are ok but it haas a more dark vibe to it which makes it not as visually appealing as the previous title was, the sound is good, the controls are great, and the story is good it's got the story based on the movie and it's own unique side stories, the problem with this game is that combat and web slinging aren't as fun as they were in Spider-Man 2, web slinging feels stiff in this game, all in all it's not as good as Spider-Man 2 but it is still a great game.

    I remember being pretty disappointed about this title after thoroughly enjoying the previous title (probably my favourite PS2 game of all timeI remember being pretty disappointed about this title after thoroughly enjoying the previous title (probably my favourite PS2 game of all time at that as well). In this title, the music was terrible, simply jumping in and out incoherently in relation to the environment you were in. The gameplay was hit and miss, sometimes good but you could tell with the movements of Spider-Man that the movement was nowhere near as fluid as the previous one - this game felt rushed. The graphics was the biggest downgrade, absolutely awful, dull and lifeless compared to the previous titles. Really surprising really, as this was a medium I thought at the time they should improve on as time went by.

    On the positive side, I do remember enjoying the transformation to black Spider-Man and reaping the benefits of the awesome power he had - particularly fun when fighting enemies as it really made a huge difference. The story was also alright too, a lot of villains in this one if I remember correctly.

    All in all, the game was nothing special for me. It was nowhere near as good as Spider-Man or Spider-Man 2.

    This is visually impressive with some decent action but is ultimatley shallow and a bit of a cash in - a bit like the film. It's also This is visually impressive with some decent action but is ultimatley shallow and a bit of a cash in - a bit like the film. It's also got the most pointless, atmosphere spoiling and downright irritating voice over in the history of computer games. Get Spiderman 2 instead or even Spiderman on the PS1 if you see it going cheap, it's better then this despite it's age. Expand

    Not much great to say about this game. The controls are horrible, the graphics looks pathetic at best. They were better in the first Not much great to say about this game. The controls are horrible, the graphics looks pathetic at best. They were better in the first rendition of the Spiderman movie games on both aspects. The only GOOD parts of this game are the facts it's free roaming and that Bruce Campbell is back in this part of the Spiderman saga. I've seen graphics of this calber on PS1 games for god sakes.
