A great game with some minor flaws, but a must for any hard core Marvel Comics fan and/or adventure fan.

Une adaptation semblable à la version PS. Des cinématiques sympas, bien dans l'ambiance du comics. Un bon petit jeu d'action à réserver aux fans de Spidey...

My only other major gripe with Spider-Man is that it's a bit too easy for my taste. Puzzles are pretty simple and most enemies have predictable patterns. The only portion that gave me a little trouble was the boss fight with Mysterio, and that was hardly any. Still, Spider-Man is good fun for anyone with a Dreamcast that hasn't played the PlayStation version and if you can get past the confusing camera and controls, you'll have a swinging good time.

The basic gameplay is involving and fun, as you swing from building to building beating the crap out of the bad guys. In some ways, the gameplay reminded me of the classic Genesis Spiderman game. The voice acting is expertly done, including narration by Stan Lee, and bonus features include different Spiderman costumes, level select, and an artwork gallery. This is the game Spiderman fans have been waiting for.

While Spider-Man does not perform as well visually as we’ve come to expect from the Dreamcast it still makes for a fun game. If you haven’t got around to playing any of the previous versions of the game yet and have access to a Dreamcast, this is one to take for a spin.

Neversoft has a knack at creating fun to play, addictive games, and Spider-Man is definitely not an exception. Not only have they done the license justice, but they also have managed to maintain the feel and atmosphere of a Marvel comic while still bringing a well-crafted, unique 3-D platformer to the market. If I wore a hat it would be off to you guys. Now lets see that sequel!

Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Things have changed with the latest incarnation of our favorite web-slinger, though, and the brilliant blend of action, mobility challenges and puzzles in this Dreamcast release will snare even the sternest of skeptics. Spidey still has, if you’ll excuse the pun, a few bugs to work out, most of which revolve around the camera and its ability to throw off key jumps and thus end an otherwise perfect run. Despite its difficulties, the camera does deserve some credit, as the game allows you to perform just about every maneuver you’ll see in the comic books, including zipping to a wall to get clear of an enemy or simply crawling across the ceiling to literally get the drop on your enemy. As a whole, this version of Spider-Man is the best there is, and gamers everywhere owe it to themselves to slip into a pair of these red and blue tights, at least in the virtual sense.

Spiderman ist ein extrem hübsches Spiel mit abwechslungsreichem Spielablauf und unvergesslichen Charakteren. Gegenüber der PSOne-Version tragen auch entscheidende Verbesserungen in der Grafik dazu bei, dass die Halbwertszeit des Spiels nicht noch kürzer gerät als sie schon ist. Ein buntes Vergnügen für jedermann.

Spiderman es un juego de acción, mucha acción, sin demasiadas complicaciones, pocos puzzles, y sobre todo habilidad, si eres de los que te gusta este género los pasarás en grande, tendrás reto para rato. Si te gusta Spiderman, no se que haces leyendo esto y no sales a comprar el programa, no podrás parar de jugarlo hasta llegar al final. Si no te encuentras en los dos grupos anteriores harías mejor alquilándolo primero, quizá su defectuosa ejecución técnica te aleje de él.

What made this game difficult to rate highly was the poor controls -- more time should have been spent fine tuning these aspects. It’s neat to access secret costumes, but how fun is a game that has the player fighting against the controls during crucial sequences? A player should also be rewarded for excelling at a game, not be punished by a cheating AI for being too good. Spider-Man can be most frustrating when the player needs to learn how the game expects him to play through a level instead of doing what might seem intuitive. And yet, for all its detractions, the game was fun and entertaining and a delight to play most of the time. Spidey fans may even want to add another 10-15 points to the score I gave this game just for all the effort they put in to capture the world of Spider-Man.

Afgezien daarvan blijft Spiderman ook voor de Dreamcast natuurlijk gewoon een lekkere platformer die garant staat voor een avontuurlijk weekendje. Spiderman is daarom zeker het huren waard voor iedereen die de titel nog niet op een andere console heeft gespeeld.

Cette adaptation Dreamcast du jeu Spiderman est identique à la version PlayStation mis à part de meilleurs graphismes et quelques bonus de plus. Au final, donc, les mêmes qualités, mais aussi les mêmes défauts. Cela dit, les fans du tisseur y trouveront de quoi jouer les monte-en-l'air...
