  1. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is easily one of my top 5 games of 2010…so far. The level of energy and excitement and the wonder of what could possible come next kept me playing for hours on end.
  2. The lack of multiplayer will hurt it with some people, but the sheer number of upgrades and collectables should keep gamers coming back for awhile. Besides that, it's a whole lot of fun.

    Your enjoyment of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions will depend on how much you agree with Bobby Kotick's assessment of the previous entries in the series. If you truly believe they sucked, skip Shattered Dimensions as it's more of the same (just without the open world New York). But if you enjoyed them, you'll want to give the game a shot as it's another entertaining Spider-Adventure that's more linear than recent games in the series, but still a lot of fun.
  4. Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions is an enjoyable action game. The gameplay is solid and splitting the adventure in four different realities works pretty well. Unfortunately there are some bugs and the virtual camera has some issues.
  5. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is a flawed experience. When it hits the mark, it hits hard, and it manages to capture a lot of the charm and fun of playing as Spider-Man. Unfortunately, this charm and fun is soured by the repetitive and unimaginative gameplay and the number of glitches.

    It's flawed, yes, but at its best it's entertaining and offers us some intriguing new ways to spin and swing our web. [Nov 2010, p.76]
  7. While I think Shattered Dimensions looks great (it really does), the substance found here is lacking. Combat is a little bland and repetitive, and stage design doesn't really allow for so much web slinging as it does web-zipping, by having edges or platforms that you can shoot across instead of literally swinging through a city, town or open area.

Shattered Dimensions is one ofSpider-Man has an awesome selection of video games, and probably the best selection of any super-hero. Shattered Dimensions is one of Spider-Man's best. It takes some of the best features of previous Spider-Man games and combines them with new features and improvements. How cool is it? Cool enough to have four different Spider-Men (Amazing, Ultimate, Noir, and 2099), each with their own unique stye, gameplay, graphics, voice actors (who have each been selected from on one of Spider-Man's TV shows), and unique twists on classic villains. You don't have to be familiar with each of the different version of Spider-Man to enjoy playing as them, but there are some great references to each Spidey's fiction that will please fans. It's clear that developer Beenox are huge Spider-Man fans and that's what makes the game so special. It's also got some of the best level design of any Spider-Man game, and the boss battles are fantastic. It's got some issues with the camera and the lock-on system, and some bugs and glitches, but they don't detract from what is one of Spider-Man's best video game outings. If your a Spidey fan this is a must play. Expand

    Good game for story, combat and lots of cool moves and costumes. The only bad thing is the camera can get wonky at times.

The four uniqueThis might not be the best spiderman game on the market, but it is a huge step up from web of shadows and Spiderman 3. The four unique dimensions have different art styles (all equally impressive) and diverse gameplay/combat. Still, recurring issues from previous spiderman games occur such as a wonky camera, repetitive gameplay, however, the gameplay is much more polished than previous spiderman games, the voice acting is stellar to say the least, the unique art styles/dimensions look really good and the presentation of the bosses are incredible.

    This Spider-Man game has some good ideas, but sadly doesn't follow through with as many as I would have liked. The story barely exists, and isThis Spider-Man game has some good ideas, but sadly doesn't follow through with as many as I would have liked. The story barely exists, and is only there to give you some explanation with the amount of bosses being flung at you. Which are, granted, very fun, as is the rest of the gameplay, but the Noir dimension is the worst. The mechanics are good, but it feels a bit clunky. Also, you don't get a lot of backstory on the villains. The game itself is great fun, but is a game amazing if all that holds it together is the actual gameplay? No, but that gameplay is pretty damn good. Expand

    This is pretty good game. Not the best super-hero adaptation but not bad, either. It's by far the best spider-man game I can remember myselfThis is pretty good game. Not the best super-hero adaptation but not bad, either. It's by far the best spider-man game I can remember myself playing (and I go as back as gameboy!).

    Graphics: The graphics are good and smooth and I did not experience any glitches. I liked the four very distinct visual styles. The camera can be really irritating during the few crawling sections of the game but these are pretty short and the frustration is over within a few minutes.

    Sound/music: The music is not exceptional but it does the job. The sound effects are decent and the voice acting is OK (if you ignore the content!).

    Story: Very light-hearted and simple, full of silly dialogue and jokes. To put it this way, this is not a story driven game. It did not bother me, I was just totally indifferent to it.

    Gameplay: The four fairly distinctive game styles work pretty well. Unfortunately, the missions tend to get a bit repetitive but the episodic structure of the game makes it easy to play for a while, finish a level and then stop and start again later or the next day...

    Overall: This is a quite good game. Recommended to all action-adventure-button-mashing fans or just whoever wants something fun but not particularly demanding or adult.
