Product Description

In Spider-Man, you get to feel the action of being Spider-Man, the world-famous hero -- and you go beyond the adventure you see in the film! Sharpen your skills to the point where you can face off against your nemesis, the Green Goblin!

Spider-Man: The Movie brings your friendly neighborhood web slinger to life with engrossing realism, proving that a superhero game of such complex nature can be achieved with nearly flawless and nonintrusive gameplay. Be it wandering the city's environs in search of villains or just checking out your surroundings by web-swinging high above them, you truly can do whatever Spider-Man can. It's all here: high-flying aerial battles, the ability to web up and yank your enemies close for pummeling, and the capacity for crawling or web-zipping up, down, and over any surface--and that's just for starters. All in all, this is one involved game that does not fail to live up to the hype.

The game parallels the motion picture's story line, steering you through a progression of challenges that begins with the hunt for Uncle Ben's murderer, and ends with a final showdown with the Green Goblin. You begin as Peter Parker dressed in his wrestling costume and must defeat a variety of thugs throughout each level before advancing to the next set of challenges. The game gets progressively tougher as you encounter, in turn, Shocker, the Vulture, Scorpion, and, of course, the Green Goblin.

Visually, Spider-Man is a treat: cityscapes unfold in realistic detail and are enhanced by sunlight shining between buildings; cutscenes offer seamless animation; interiors are painstakingly re-created; and Spider-Man and his enemies are well rendered, moving about the screen in clean fashion. As an added bonus, most characters are voiced by their movie counterparts, and the training mode features the sarcastic wit of Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell. --Larry White

Pros:

  • Detailed controls bring Spider-Man to life
  • Challenging gameplay enhanced by numerous fight styles
  • Stunning visuals at every level
Cons:
  • Camera angles slow to respond at times
  • Some interiors too dark
  • Repetitive one-liners


Spider-Man: The Movie allows fans to play as Spider-Man in several highly detailed 3-D environments inspired by the Columbia Pictures/Marvel Entertainment live-action feature film (due for release in May of 2002). This full-roaming action-adventure game allows players to jump into the suit of a fledgling Marvel superhero and learn how to battle the forces of evil. Players crawl, leap, and swing from the dizzying heights of skyscrapers to catch criminals and supervillains, and, ultimately, come face-to-face with the Green Goblin in a death-defying display of aerial combat. During the course of the game, players must use Spider-Man's spider-sense, agility, quick wits, and strength to evade the pursuit of the bad guys and overcome obstacles.
Features:
  • Explore the powers of Peter Parker after he is bitten a radioactive spider and gains amazing new powers
  • You'll get to swing around the skyscrapers of a massive 3D recreation of New York City
  • Use your spider-like abilities to do the impossible -- stick to walls, shoot webs and more
  • Battle criminals as you go beyond the storyline presented in the hit movie - threats like Kraven and The Vulture
  • New combos and webbing types, plus new puzzles and challenges are waiting for you

Customer Reviews:

  • Spider-Man's Biggest Game
    This game was much better then Wolverine's Revenge and a bit better then the Hulk. This game is extremely fun, from the web-swinging [Which goes into the sky and beyond]to the fighting. The storyline closely follows that of the movie except when you battle added super-villians such as the Vulture or Scorpion. There are a number of combos that you can preform, and eventually unlock the Green Goblin [This time as Harry Osborn], where you get to use the glider and all of the Green Goblin's weapons. Most of the objects in the game are interactive so you can pick up cars or garbage cans and use them as weapons. Though you don't have such a wide range of weapons to collect as the Hulk, Spider-Man is a great game. You can collect Golden Spider Icons to unlock new attacks and moves, and you have Spider-Man's web powers at your disposal, such as his normal web which wraps your opponent in the web temporairly, the Web Dome, a shield made out of thick web that soon bursts open knocking back enemies, the Web Yank which pulls enemies towards you, your Impact Web which shoots a powerful ball of web fluid, or the Web Gloves which enhances your physical fist moves. Also the boss battles are extremely fun, from the battle with Spike to battles with the Shocker, to dazzling aerial combat with the Vulture to wall-crawling matches with Scorpion and ending in a terrific aerial brawl with the Green Goblin....more info
  • BEST SPIDEY GAME SINCE THE PS1 GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    well to start what amazons asking is a awesome deal cause the graphics on this one is better than spider-man 2 or 3 and the controlls are very similar to the spider-man game on ps1 and he swings like it, scorpion looks like he did on the ps1. but some scenes were not in the game like it would be a awesome level if you could battle bonesaw but you could in training after you battle like 70 thugs and the last level could've been better by battling inside the warehouse when you beat half of him and the death scene was kida cool ...spoilers!!!... spidey knocks out goblin in the middle of the road and he takes off his helmet revealing its gasp! norman osborn he starts talking to peter and he summons his glider to "run him over" not inpaling him but web jumps and the speed of the glider kills him not really movie plot but i think the shocker levels are my favorites cause ..SPOILERS... robs a jewlery store his thugs beat up cops and you save them you meet shocker he tries to kill a man you save him, he escapes through the sewer beat up more guys, make it to the subway try to web zip to shocker and avoid his mega blast , he escapes you chase him and finnaly knock the crap out of him when he then tells you that vulture has half of the money you again try to reach him he escapes, couple of old man jokes, beat him out of the sky kick his butt then gets arrested plus they made scorpion crazier than a soup sandwich.
    overall this is awesome so buy it you wont regrett it!...more info
  • Spider-Man
    This is the best spiderman game there is. The graphics, characters and action sequences are great. You get to fight Shocker, Vulture, Scorpion, and the Green Goblin. The best part about this game is the secret store. Everytime you get to certain points in the game(beat it in easy mode, reach 20000pts, beat it in hero mode) you unlock a new secret. The secrets are great, one of them is a special Spider-man Bowling level(beat the game on easy). But the best on is when you beat it on hero mode, you get to play as green goblin. You use his glider and pumkin bombs and superfast running ability. Its so awesome. All these special things keep the game fun for ever.

    A small hint if you find that hero mode is to hard but you want to play green goblin right away. Go to cheats, under the specials menu, then type in romitas, it enables a next level feature in the pause menu. At the start of every level, pause it, then choose Next Level, it will skip that level. You can keep skipping levels until you beat the game and get green goblin.
    Good Luck...more info

  • Spider-Man: Cool or Fool?
    This game was super awesome, but the game was too easy. The only thing missing was another level. It could have used another level. Finding those combos are hard. For those who are reading, here's a chaeat that enables all levels: ARACHNID Cool, huh? I give it an 8.4. But really, it requires skill and strong focus, but seriously, it could have used another level....more info
  • The Human Spider
    This game is great. When I first got it, it was awesome. It still is. You play as a teenager that's been bitten by a genetically engineered spider. The spider's DNA gets into yours and you get superhuman strength. You can shoot webbing, you're stronger and more flexible, and you can climb walls and ceilings. The only bad thing in this game, is that sometimes the screen somehow gets too dark so you can't see really good.
    Highly recommended though....more info
  • Well...
    Patient:Doctor,I feel enclosed in many levels.The first was okay with the free swinging action,but then,there was no room to fight,NO ROOM TO FIGHT!!!(sob)Peter would say things over and over again!I couldn't take it anymore!He wouldn't shutup!That is why I did it.That's right I broke the disk and I'm PROUD,PROUD, PROUD,PROUD.I WOULD DO IT AGAIN TOO! AND AGAIN,AGAIN!HAH,HAH,HAH HA!Police office:Whats wrong with him?Shrink:It seems he has 2 of 5 syndrome...more info
  • MY spidey sense tells me you should buy this game
    This Is a great game for any spiderman fan. It has the same basic storyline as the movie but of course it is changed a bit so there are more levels. To get new combos you have to find yellow spiders that are usually hidden. ( Just a tip on the showdown with Vulture level. Don't get the combo on top of the building until it stops lightning. Trust me YOU Will get struck by lightning).

    This game is worth adding to your collection but you can beat it very quickly. Don't worry there are a lot of cheat coads and stuff to make it last. I've had it for two years and there are still things I haven't done yet....more info

  • Good, but too short
    I rented this game for 3 days at a local game store. Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but I beat it in 3 hours on the first night playing it. So overall it's a good game, but you'll beat it in 3-5 hours. I'ts more of a rental game....more info
  • Pure Fun----Ben N. At The Games

  • AWESOME!!!!!
    Hi. This game is one of the BEST PS2 games I've ever played!!!!! I have no idea why other people say is's a bad game!!!!! You can fight villans, sneak into places, web swing around the city, and much, much more!!!!!...more info
  • spider~man rox!
    This game is one of the best games for ps2. I haven't completely beaten the game yet but all of the levels that i have done are great. In the game, u get to fight Uncle Ben's murdurer,Shocker,Vulture,the scorpion,and the infamous green goblin. Although the game is shorter than one would expect, there is great replay value. Things to unlock and great cheat options to play as many different characters.There are four different difficulties: easy,normal,hero, and superhero. This game has both adventure, fighting, and strategy. Before i got this game i wasn't much of a spider~man fan, but when my brother bought it to my surprise i became a big spider~man fan.
    This game has very good graphics but some of the interior levels could have been done a little better but all in all they are good. In some of the later levels u have to use stealth but in some areas u should use all out battle tactics.
    The sound in this game has no music but the characters talk. They say the same things over and over so it can get a little annoying but not really that bad.
    Rent or buy: For those of u diehard spiderman fans this is definitly a buy, but for others u might want to rent it first....more info

  • Go, Spidey!!!
    Spider-Man is a great game for the E-Teen category. It's graphics rock, and it's sound is a thumbs-up! The voice acting is okay, but the cheesy jokes get to your head after a while. The camera positioning is a little annoying due to the fact that when you steer it around, there's no default button to bring it back. The gameplay (I refer to the PS2) is good-pretty much in the same areas as the Gamecube version. I happen to like cheats, and I'll say it right now: this game has good cheats. You can even fight as the murderer! (the only downfall being that you can't use the shotgun). The levels are a mix of easy and hard (but more easy than hard), and everything else is a check! I don't want to spoil the game, so I'll only give you the cheat for all moves: KOALA. Overall, Spider-Man is a great game on Ps2 and gamecube, and if you want some third person smashing, then get this game!!!...more info

  • I Care About MY Kid... and I STILL let my 4 yr old play it!
    My son got this game, along with a PS2 Spiderman controller, for his 4th birthday. I don't know how someone else said the villians are more demonic looking. I've seen more frightening characters in my husband's ESPN NFL 2K5!!! My son LOVES spiderman and this was bought to compliment the controller. I've watched him play it and so far NOTHING seems very violent. Sure, you beat up the bad guys. However, there's no bloody graphics. and the bad guys just disappear. What did you think it would be, saying No No and giving them time-outs?!? Anyway, my son loves this game and the web slinging and swinging. I'm VERY cautious about what he watches/plays (Tekken and WWF are BIG no nos in my house) and I have no problems with him playing this. Awesome storyline flows with the movie. Spiderman retains his boyish naivete' and charm. GREAT buy!...more info
  • THIS GAME SUXS
    I paid 50 bucks for this game and expected a lot more out of it it was stupid and short...more info
  • It's an okay game!
    It was a lot like the movie Spiderman and I was amused with those web crawling stuff and jumping makes me want to get The Hulk. I liked the previews before it it was just like watching the movie sort of. But the people in the game looked nothing like the actors like with Peter Parker he looked nothing like Tobey Maguire except maybe the eyes and somewhat of the skin they looked totally different but it does have the voices from the movie and everything it was a cool game and I enjoyed it....more info
  • I DONT REALLY LIKE THIS GAME IT MAKES YOU DIZZY
    Sure its Spiderman and all, they even added in movie scenes for everytime you beat a level, but some parts are dizzy, i got a headache on a couple of levels...more info
  • If you liked my review my name is Troy, if not its Charlie
    Spiderman is a really great game. I've had it along time 1 and a half years. Its really fun to play, but your webbing doesn't touch buildings. It puts you right in the movie you first find Uncle Bens killer then you battle Spidy's old comic book villans,then the Green Goblin. Also when you beat the game on Super Hero you get a few cool things in the Secret Store. Over all its a great game and worth the money. ...more info

IT IS WORTH THE PRICE!!!...more info
  • a fantastic seris
    I have grown more fascinated with this since the movies came out and they made himn stronger. His webs I belive might have been that srong in the original comic but his pyshical body stregth of his actually body was that of normal man not that of super man. Here are some straties for this and other spider man game.
    I will first start with the arcade game. Played with black cat for the first fight with venom combine kicks punches with throws to reduce resitanmce to damage venom when he is normal size before enlarge to 3/10 the size orf mr staypuuff. He has a weak resitance of only aabout 12% meaning twelve blows will him if you used throw punches and kickes. Only used kicks and pucnhes and the fight will take twice to four times as long and his restiance will be 15 t 80% and only take away half as much percentage wise per hit. Try to limited the elimn8ulator use that actually increase the number of times you have to continue depending on how often you use it I think this guy or did it starting around the second before the lizard battle. You do fight scorpion before venom but he is just an annoyed diversion after a few hit the main fight with venom will commence. You will have your nex fight with the enlarged venom. If you use a special movie and hit hit with this giant wipe like graphic hook like weapon he has 25% resistance mean four hits will defeat him untiul you climb up another couple of stories and the scond battle with this nastier venom will begin. Venon is slight stronger this time only take 16.6% damge with the use of this item so you have to hit him one more time than the previous fight. For the third fight his resitance is strongest at 11% take a 11 hits or only 9.09% damage per hit to bet. After you defeat him this t6ime the stone will come out of him and he will go back done to his original size. Fight venom one more time at normal size if you combine pucnhes kick and throw you can over come his 12% resitacne when these are combined with throws it doubles again hit him with about 4 hits pucnhes and throws causing 8.3% damge per each on he does not dodge and it is the end of the first stage of the game. For the scorpion bose fight alternmate between kick punches and throw attacks to cut his resitance to damage down from about 15% 80 maybe higher down to a mere 12% resitance. Deliver a combinatyionf a baout 9 punches on Doctor octupus or Doc Ock and he will go down. For the next boss the sand man score about 17 to 18 punches or kick on him and he goes down you cfan maybe cut his damage ristance down by about half if you alternate attacks for normal punched and kick to throw attacks freuqently enough. Next you must fight two boss fight back to back the hobo goblin who will go down with about 11 hits if you the rit combinations and the after him the kingpin a villian from the cartoon series that never appaeared in the actual movies. About combination of eigteen blow with and occasional throw will take this big guy down. For the next fight you are into they ftying pan you must refight the llizard in a cave literall 75% of the screen on the ground is engulfed in flames. A combinatioon of 16 normal movies and 1 to 2 throw attack will take him down. To cut the blow down try to do more throws throw the weaker minions at the lizard it might have the same effected as you throw him your self. Now comes one of the longest fights in tghe game the boss battle against the other goblin the infamous green goblin. This boss has three health bars you can take him down with only ninteen hits if you use and emulator but yo take damage ten times more easily and faster in this battle so I don't recommend using and inhumilator on this or other games in this series unless you have invulerability one or something like that. I will send the remain boss data later sometime inbetween 7:00 and 9:00 PM this evening I will ao be doing the ultimate spider man the newest game when the man bad guy is venom on this same review because the speed run is massive for ultimate spider borke up into at least 6 parts maybe more. This is the second segment of ultimate spider man. Next you have your first train boss battle with venom against wolverine he has a high defense status of about 35% damage resitance so attack him with your wip arm like attack from a distance to reduce damage if play with oun infinite health or invulerability cheats on. 35 hits with this move which does and wimp 2.8% damage of the max 100% this train boss is capable of enduring each time it is performed correctly try to do a strong move like a throw to speed this up if you get impatient our you find you are taking to much damage. I will send the remain boss status for this second segment later today....more info
  • my review
    this game isn't that bad but some of the things stink.Like when you have to go to oscorp and beatup the robots i havn't beaten that yet and you cant go on the ground.and you have to fight some people tht wern't in the movie.but the graphics are really good and its not that violent so little kids can play it.
    but you might like this game so rent it...more info
  • Part 2
    I was pleased with this game. I saw the movie so i was thinking that the game would be good. Plus i loved the movie, they are making a SPIDER-MAN 2 movie. so i hope they make a game for that 2nd movie. And make the next game as good or better as this one....more info

    This is a great fighting game. I love the moves, and the addition of Spidey-Sense. A game for kids from 1 to 92. Although it's been said many times, many ways, get Spiderman for PS2....more info
  • This game is alright
    This game is cool for awhile if you like to swing around the city and save people but the graphics are a little crappy and you do the same bull over and over again like save people and hear people scream spiderman help me over and over again. Gets old fast but if your die hard spider dork you need to buy this but if your an average gamer like myself you might want to rent this for a couple days....more info
  • This is the best Spider-man game yet!
    This game is the best Spider-man game yet! It has awesome graphics. It has little movies at the end of levels. New moves that weren't in the regular ps1 games. For example: you can web swing as long as you want and go higher, unlike in the ps1 Spider-man. You start off in the original costume Peter uses in the wrestling match. I like how when you're fighting green goblin, you can jump on his glider and start punching him. It is awesome. The only bad part is the camera view doesn't move around with spidey so you have to manually move the camera....i got use to it after a while. You can get gold spider icons which unlock new combo moves. you also fight villains other than the green goblin. also tobey maguire does the voicse of peter/spider-man. william dafoe does norman/green goblin. If you liked the movie and just spider-man in general, its the game for you!...more info

  • Doing whatever a spider can, and then some
    Building on their success with the surprisingly good Spider-Man games on the PS1, Activision and Treyarch managed to craft a great game based on Marvel's resident web slinger. The game's storyline more or less follows the plot of the smash hit film, while incorporating extra villians from the comic like Shocker, Vulture, and Scorpion. The graphics, minus a few glitches and frame rate slowdown, are otherwise phenominal and give a great looking New York City. Spidey himself looks great and animates very smoothly. If you enjoyed playing the Spider-Man PS1 games, you'll be familiar with the control scheme right away. Film stars Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe supply the voices for Spidey and the Green Goblin respectively, with Dafoe giving a great, over the top vocal performance. The only major problems with the game are some of the levels get too repetitive and the camera angle doesn't help much in the heat of battle. The game itself is loaded with extras and secrets that will keep gamers playing, and all in all if your a Spider-Man fan this game is a more than solid deal....more info
  • Come On
    this game got me a little ticked. spiderman is awesome , right. this game is so FRUITY. they can do better....more info
  • I think it's cool...
    I like this game a lot because the moves and graphics are awesome...but It is a little hard to get past about the fourth level :D but maybe that's just because of how bad I am at video games. I recommend this game. It's a lot of fun.. but I guess I do get bored from time to time considering how I can't get past a certain level.....more info
  • Pretty Good Spiderman Game
    This is a pretty good Spiderman game let me name some good and bad parts bout this game.

    The Good
    It goes beyond the movie
    pretty decent graphics
    fly around
    pretty long playing time

    The Bad
    You cant go all over New York
    The storyline was kinda like the movie, but should of been more
    if u go down to low when flying u end up falling down and restarting the level.

    Overall: 4.0/5.0

  • Frustrating at times
    This Spiderman game is based on the movie. It is a 3D adventure game, featuring all of the movie Spiderman's abilities. It is moderately difficult. The camera angles are poor, and the character controls are stiff, and reaction speed slow. I thought the stealth mode was not implemented very well, as most of the time you have to fight the same people you could hide from anyway. The graphics are mediocre at best. The music is pretty average.

    Despite my criticisms, the game is somewhat fun. There are surprise attacks that you have to dodge, as spiderman would. There is a decent amount of robustness to the level of interactivity with the environment. For example, you can pick up, throw, or kick objects. The objects have different physics such as rolling for tires and explosions for certain containers. You can climb on walls and ceilings, and shoot a web to pull yourself to a wall or ceiling, although you may not shoot diagonally.

    Additionally, the controls are explained well and are fairly intuitive. If you are a fan of spiderman or 3D adventure games, you might want to give this game a try. Otherwise I would tread carefully and not spend too much money renting or buying this....more info
  • Spider-Man is Bad

  • aramis review
    spider man the video game is successful at web swinging and wall crawling and also is very very fun to play.see i beat this whole entire game in 5 days because the hard level like when you have to chase green goblin when he got aunt may and when you have to defeated the flying robots.i didnt get to beat level until one day i play that mission and i defeated the 10 robots but i was only down to one robot and i beat that level in 5 minutes.but the game was great and i enjoy play it.and another thing that is sweet about this game is that you can play as peter parker/spiderman...more info
  • THE BEST GAME EVER
    This game is AUSOME! It has web slinging,zip lining and you can even get combo attack tokens. This game even has it's own training mode (basic,intermediate,advanced). Also the graphics are ausome,if you put on a big screen it will look in your face 3D (it's already 3D).So if you ask me you should get this game....more info
  • fun for action players
    This game overall is one of my favorites. It really deserves 4 and a half stars. But one of the things is a lot of the things in the game don't happen in the movie. This is not a problem for me and probably for most. In the game you not only fight the Green Goblin but the Shocker, Vulture, and Scorpion, with the addition of Uncle Ben's killer (who really isn't a supervillian). Another nice thing about this game is the combat, which can also be a hassle at times. In the game you get WAY more moves than in the previous games. In the beggining you don't get many awesome combo moves, but as you progress through the game your moves get more interesting. Another nice thing is the graphics. At times you'll just want stand and look at the buildings which reflect the other things outside and the designs on Spiderman's or Goblin's outfit.This games bosses are challenging and willmake you want to fight them again. Buy this game. ...more info
  • be the hero
    First of all for those who want to buy the game , make sure you have a good video card. Chaeck the activision website to make sure yours is compatable. The game wouldnt play on my 3.0ghz gaming computer because of the built in video card even though it was 128mb, However to my surprise it played on my older computer, a 1.4 ghz but with a radeon 64mb card.

    The graphics are pretty smooth but I used lower details because of the machine speed. There are elements of the movie here and some new stuff to keep you interested incase you dont want to play exactly the movie role.

    The controls are easy to learn after a few blunders and the fun factor is quite high.

    As for the in game playing, The Older spiderman game has a slightly more virtual city effect to it than this one. You find your self wanting to wander around but there's nothing there to keep you entertained.

    I had a blast playing this game and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of spiderman games....more info

  • Great Game
    Spider-Man is a great game, I had it for a while, 'till I made a dumb move, I traded it <:(. I will always regret that but I'll get a new copy, soon. I would get this game if I were you since this was the FIRST game I had, and traded it for a game I don't play anymore and I haven't even beat Spider-Man on Hero and Super Hero. I seriously would get this game....more info
  • Swinging a fine line
    Spider man for the Playstation 2 is a game that walks a very fine line between being fun, and being frustrating. As you probably know, this game is based on the first spider man movie. You step into the role of Peter Parker as he swings through Manhattan in his quest to avenge the death of one of his loved ones. Oh yea, and he also has to contend with the lunatic Green Goblin who wants to kill him.

    At it's heart, Spider man is founded almost exactly like it's PS1 cousin (that was a great game). You swing through the city of New York using the R2 button, attack foes with your fists and feet, spin webs and fight crime. But unlike the PS1 games, the PS2 spider man is graphically amazing. The skyscrapers of New York really come to life like never before, looking entirely realistic. Planes fly through the air, cars go through the streets far below. New York has never looked so good before. Likewise for the charachters, who all look great. Peter Parker in the game looks exactly like the Peter Parker in the movie. Overall, the graphics here are amazing. People talk about how poor the graphics are on PS2 compared to X-Box, but I have yet to see any proof of this.

    Unfortunitly, the gameplay of Spider man is at best, mediocre. And at its worst, it's hair tearinginly frustrating. When I started playing the first level, I was a bit stunned at how bad the camera is. Of course this is to be expected, being that this is a spider man game, but this has got to be the worst Spider-Man camera yet. It drifts as if it was on a swivel, and it takes a long time to get used to it. The Camera lock feature is a nice touch though.

    The fighting of Spider man is very frustrating. Any spider man fan knows that Spidey can lift a semi truck over his head easily. If that's true, then how come Spider man is such a wimp when it comes to taking out certain bad guys. Here's a helpful hint when playing the game. If you see a thug with a gun, RUN!!! The thugs with guns are withought a doubt the most frustrating enemies in the game. They fire guns very fast at you, and they can block your attacks simply by putting thier arms up. And worst of all, they can take upwards of ten of your most powerful combos before they die. This is beyond frustrating. This is beyond infuriating. This is so frustrating that words cannot describe it. In the third level, after I died the sixtenth time after fighting three thugs with guns who kept saying, "Mess with the skulls, you pay da price". I wanted to shout, "OH YEAH?! YOU CAN CRAM THAT C*** UP YOUR..." Well, you can probably guess where that went. I got so mad after my thirtieth try, that I almost broke my controler by slamming it on the ground in frustration. You read that right. The game made me almost broke my controler. In ten years of playing video games, Spider Man is the first game that made me damage my controler out of frustration. That's not a good sign...

    But I dont want to paint an excessivly poor picture of this game. Some of the levels are a lot of fun to play, such as "Air duel with the vulture", and "Face off at the bridge." There are also nifty cheats that allow you to play as various charachters, such as a policeman, a thug, even shocker! There's a code that lets you shrink your charachter down to about ten inches tall. There's even a alternate story line where you play as Harry Osborn in the Green Goblin outfit. And Bruce Cambells narration is hilarious! "When you hide in the shadows, the bad guys wont see you. Muhawwwwwhhaaa!" Likewise, the actors who played the Green Goblin and Peter Parker lent thier voice talents to the game, and both do a superb job at it.

    In the end, Spider man is enjoyable, but it comes within a hair of being bad. I recommend renting before you buy....more info
  • ONE of the best comic book based video games
    I'll give this game 4 out of 5 because the graphics are really enhanced with the 3-D environment and The great Spidey movement animation, and the sound quality is top quality as well, but Spiderman himself doesnt quite strike me as the true comic superhero for people to look up to. Not to mention hearing Tobey Magwire narrating throughout the game gets me irritated. Like I said, this is one of the best comic based video games for one of the best superheroes, but I leave my praise as THE best to Wolverine and X2 Wolverines revenge. That being the best game for a comic superhero for more advanced video game players to appreciate. I expect the younger and less mature crowd to appreciate Spiderman and child oriented spidey games, leave Wolverine for the older players....more info
  • a fantastic seris
    I have grown more fascinated with this since the movies came out and they made himn stronger. His webs I belive might have been that srong in the original comic but his pyshical body stregth of his actually body was that of normal man not that of super man. Here are some straties for this and other spider man game.
    I will first start with the arcade game. Played with black cat for the first fight with venom combine kicks punches with throws to reduce resitanmce to damage venom when he is normal size before enlarge to 3/10 the size orf mr staypuuff. He has a weak resitance of only aabout 12% meaning twelve blows will him if you used throw punches and kickes. Only used kicks and pucnhes and the fight will take twice to four times as long and his restiance will be 15 t 80% and only take away half as much percentage wise per hit. Try to limited the elimn8ulator use that actually increase the number of times you have to continue depending on how often you use it I think this guy or did it starting around the second before the lizard battle. You do fight scorpion before venom but he is just an annoyed diversion after a few hit the main fight with venom will commence. You will have your nex fight with the enlarged venom. If you use a special movie and hit hit with this giant wipe like graphic hook like weapon he has 25% resistance mean four hits will defeat him untiul you climb up another couple of stories and the scond battle with this nastier venom will begin. Venon is slight stronger this time only take 16.6% damge with the use of this item so you have to hit him one more time than the previous fight. For the third fight his resitance is strongest at 11% take a 11 hits or only 9.09% damage per hit to bet. After you defeat him this t6ime the stone will come out of him and he will go back done to his original size. Fight venom one more time at normal size if you combine pucnhes kick and throw you can over come his 12% resitacne when these are combined with throws it doubles again hit him with about 4 hits pucnhes and throws causing 8.3% damge per each on he does not dodge and it is the end of the first stage of the game. For the scorpion bose fight alternmate between kick punches and throw attacks to cut his resitance to damage down from about 15% 80 maybe higher down to a mere 12% resitance. Deliver a combinatyionf a baout 9 punches on Doctor octupus or Doc Ock and he will go down. For the next boss the sand man score about 17 to 18 punches or kick on him and he goes down you cfan maybe cut his damage ristance down by about half if you alternate attacks for normal punched and kick to throw attacks freuqently enough. Next you must fight two boss fight back to back the hobo goblin who will go down with about 11 hits if you the rit combinations and the after him the kingpin a villian from the cartoon series that never appaeared in the actual movies. About combination of eigteen blow with and occasional throw will take this big guy down. For the next fight you are into they ftying pan you must refight the llizard in a cave literall 75% of the screen on the ground is engulfed in flames. A combinatioon of 16 normal movies and 1 to 2 throw attack will take him down. To cut the blow down try to do more throws throw the weaker minions at the lizard it might have the same effected as you throw him your self. Now comes one of the longest fights in tghe game the boss battle against the other goblin the infamous green goblin. This boss has three health bars you can take him down with only ninteen hits if you use and emulator but yo take damage ten times more easily and faster in this battle so I don't recommend using and inhumilator on this or other games in this series unless you have invulerability one or something like that. I will send the remain boss data later sometime inbetween 7:00 and 9:00 PM this evening I will ao be doing the ultimate spider man the newest game when the man bad guy is venom on this same review because the speed run is massive for ultimate spider borke up into at least 6 parts maybe more. This is the second segment of ultimate spider man. Next you have your first train boss battle with venom against wolverine he has a high defense status of about 35% damage resitance so attack him with your wip arm like attack from a distance to reduce damage if play with oun infinite health or invulerability cheats on. 35 hits with this move which does and wimp 2.8% damage of the max 100% this train boss is capable of enduring each time it is performed correctly try to do a strong move like a throw to speed this up if you get impatient our you find you are taking to much damage. I will send the remain boss status for this second segment later today....more info

  • You go, Spidey!
    overall, this is a great game!! If you like spiderman, definitely get it. Its kind of challenging. But there are tons of extra features, including lots of codes that range from playing with the Green Goblin to having infinite web damage. Also there are comic strips and things that go into the game. The graphics are good, they do it nicely and they look even better when spidey gets his REAL costume. The camera was prett good, even when i was web-swinging all around the city it followed me so i didnt get confused where i was. The gameplay is good, though just a teeny bit difficult in the upcoming levels, you'll have to use all of the moves you learned to a full advantage, i strongly recommend you playing the somewhat funny tutorial, which teaches you the basic moves. also you can unlock extra things like mini games, like pinball bowling. ALl in all this is a great game, and definitely a must for spidey-lovers. The voice acting is done pretty good, i generaly couldnt tell the difference and im not sure if its really tobey or not but it sounds damn like him....more info
