Description

Spider-Man, the classic comic book co-created by Stan Lee, is now a major motion picture. This conversion of the movie to the video game world takes the major storyline, characters and artwork of the Spider-Man movie and adds a lengthy backstory and new characters.

The Green Goblin is the main villian here, and as Peter Parker you must defy gravity using your spider crawl, web-slinging and spider-sense abilities to track down Spidey's nemesis through the skyscapers of New York City.

The major inclusion for this title over the previous Spider-Man series (on Playstation also by Activision) is aerial combat. Attack the enemy mid-air while web-slinging, rise and decend while swinging and banking around buildings create a greater emphasis on Spidey's greatest asset, the spider web.

Trivia

This game has several cheat codes that allow you to play the game as a variety of characters, such as thugs, security guards, the Shocker, and a motorcycle cop named Captain Stacey with a striking resemblance to Marvel kingpin Stan Lee.

One code allowed you to play the game as Mary Jane (the only female playable character), but this code was apparently disabled in later production copies of the game. A possible reason for this is that in the game's ending you see Mary Jane and your character kissing, so if you play as Mary Jane you end up with her frenching herself. Perhaps the developers felt that having two women making out in their game would alienate potential buyers (or, more likely, the parents of potential buyers), considering the family demographic this game is targeted at.
