  1. However, the fact that Spider-Man 3 is late to the party, coupled with the PSP’s control limitations, keep this version from achieving the same success that the other versions achieved.
  2. Overall, unless you really need to have your Spidey on a portable, you're better off with the console versions here.
  3. Just a below-average game that looks dated, plays poorly, and probably isn't worth your time.

    As a comic book nerd, the liberties taken with the story and the meaningless tasks forced on our superhero frustrate to no end. I never felt like Spider-Man in this game.

    It just about beats sitting in an empty room, which is my new scoring standard for movie games. [Feb 2008, p.98]

    Spider-Man 3 was okay, for about five minutes. Shortly after, it became a series of painful stabs to the soul, culminating in a single realisation: Activision has put out the worst Spider-Man game of recent times. [Issue#162, p.94]

    A port of the Wii/Ps2 version and probably much better if I'm being honest, by virtue of it being on hardware that is actually congruous withA port of the Wii/Ps2 version and probably much better if I'm being honest, by virtue of it being on hardware that is actually congruous with how it looks and plays. Whereas it was nearly depressing to look at on the aforementioned home consoles after the likes of Spider-man 2.

    In terms of when this came out, it was a full console level open world Spiderman game on a portable device only a few short years after S2 even showed open world spiderman was possible.

    That said it's a tad janky. '6.5' , I mean it's a more than modest feat barring quality assessment, but it would have been 5.5 on Wii and 5.0 on PS2.

    Owning both the Xbox 360 version and the PSP version, I've got to say, they did do an amazing job cramming the PS2 version onto the PSP. Owning both the Xbox 360 version and the PSP version, I've got to say, they did do an amazing job cramming the PS2 version onto the PSP. Xbox had great graphics and obviously prefer it over the PSP version, but PSP version is just as special. Its very polished and is perfect in what it attempt to accomplish, Spider-man on the go. Easy to get used to, no framerate issues even though the entire new york is being rendered. This is one hell of a great game and if you're a Spidey fan, get this game. The only thing that I would improve on would have been the story, their not as detailed as to could have been, but the game aint meant for story, its meant to be pickup in the car and play on your way to somewhere, and thats why I'm forgiving on that factor. Great Game. Full Review »
