All of this amounts to a game that could be great, but is brought down to average by annoying flaws that should have been fixed. Someone needs to remind the developer about that whole "great power, great responsibility" thing. But it is Spider-Man, most of the time it's a lot of fun, and it will make your teenager happy.

Game Chronicles
Ultimately, anyone who loves Spider-Man is going to have a blast playing this new next-gen installment. Much like the movie, Spider-Man 3, the game, will be the thrill ride of the summer. Everything is bigger, better, and much more polished than the previous games. But most of all, Spider-Man 3 is fun, providing upwards of 30 hours of quality entertainment for anyone who has ever dreamed of becoming one of the world’s most beloved superheroes.

Game Informer Magazine
Similar to the alien symbiote that clings to Peter Parker’s skin, the Spider-Man 3 film utilizes the game as a host, delivering the same story arc, the voices and likenesses of the actors, and an overall tone akin to its silver screen counterpart. Just as the black suit manifests the dark side in Spider-Man, the film taints the game by imposing its ill-fitted structure.

"Spider-Man 3" ist das bisher beste Spiel der Serie. Das liegt vor allem daran, dass Hersteller Activision die gelungensten Eigenheiten der Vorgänger zu einem insgesamt stimmigen Mix kombinierte. Auf der Habenseite verbucht der Titel, dass Sie ständig mehrere Aufgaben zur Wahl haben. Auch wenn nervige - und immer mal wieder sehr schwere - Abschnitte dabei sind, kommt da so schnell keine Langeweile auf. Zudem macht es einfach Spaß, scheinbar schwerelos an klebrigen Spinnenfäden durch die Straßen New Yorks zu schwingen. Die Optik geht in Ordnung, auch wenn mehr Grafikdetails nett gewesen wären und es sogar zu Bildrucklern kommen kann, wenn sich viele Gegner auf dem Bildschirm tummeln. Gerade Anfänger werden mit der komplexen Steuerung zu kämpfen haben. Einige verlorene Kämpfe, immerhin Hauptbestandteil des Spiels, müssen einkalkuliert werden. Action-Fans fühlen sich mit Spider-Man 3 dennoch "gut" unterhalten.

Spider-man 3 isn't a great game, but its nice to see some efforts have been mode to expand on the movie. Adequate graphics and sound. Spider-man fans will enjoy this game.

In the end, Spider-Man 3 has its moments. Swinging through New York is as fun as it's ever been, and some of the new contextual action sequences are pretty cool. But for everything Spider-Man 3 does well, it does something else poorly. The camera and presentation issues, as well as the clumsy combat, all conspire to drag the experience down significantly. Spider-Man 3 isn't without merit, but unless you're one of those diehard Spider-Man fans that can't get enough of the swinging superhero, there's probably not enough to Spider-Man 3 to make it worth your time.

Spider-Man 3 is – not unlike its cinematic counterpart – a huge disappointment. It’s not a complete loss, and many gamers – particularly Spider-Man fans will probably enjoy the game enough to merit the $60 asking price. Those without a huge attachment to the character would be better off spending the money on some trade-paper backs of the comic.

There are only 42 missions in the game with only a handful of side quests. I personally finished all the main quests in about 12 hours and most of the side quests in 3 more hours. While the game can be played again as Black Spider-Man for some butt stomping fun, there really is not too much here. This is an easy game that won't keep you busy for long, almost like Spider-Man 2: Special Edition. If you really need a Spidey fix, go out and find Spider-Man 2 or even Ultimate Spider-Man. They are better games that will keep you occupied longer. Spider-Man 3 is really only worth a rental, but definitely not worth it's $60 price tag.

Does this make up for the maddening camera and homeliness of the rest of the game? Almost, or maybe just barely; it really depends on how invested you are in the series. Fans of Spider-Man 2 will likely feel pangs of discontent over the new problems, yet celebrate the inclusion of the new features. Meanwhile, people who couldn't care less about Spider-Man's past games may still find this one enjoyable, but don't say I didn't warn you when you get that urge to put your controller through your brand-new HDTV.

"Spider-Man 3" tem praticamente as mesmas qualidades e defeitos do antecessor: uma boa liberdade para explorar Manhattan, mas combates ruins. O problema é que as missões ficaram menos interessantes. O visual é melhor, mas não é aquele salto entre gerações. No fim das contas, a Activision ainda está devendo um jogo que esteja à altura do Homem-Aranha. Quem chegou mais perto foi "Spider-Man 2".

All in all, Spider-Man 3 was a tremendous bore and I think that I’ll go play some more of Spider-Man 2 to try and get the taste out of my mouth.

If you're desperate for a Spider-Man game, this one fills your need for webs, but other than nailing what web-swinging should feel like, this game is a bust. We were promised a Spidey experience that was next-gen and expanded on everything Spider-Man 2 did right, but we were given a buggy game that's just Spider-Man 2: Special Edition. Combat is brainless button-mashing, the bosses are frustrating and cheap, the visuals aren't worthy of your PS3, and although the random crimes aren't the same events over and over, they definitely reuse the same ideas.

Worth Playing
While this title can easily offer a good 20-30 hours of gameplay, you'd have to be a masochist to subject yourself to that much overwhelming mediocrity. If you're a huge Spider-Man fan, this game may be for you. Anyone else will be content renting it and amusing themselves for a few hours exploring the Big Apple and returning it before the dullness sets in.

A film exceptionnel, jeu anodin, serait-on en droit de se dire à la vue de ce Spider-Man 3. Bien qu'il soit toujours plaisant de slalomer entre les tours new-yorkaises, on soupire en constatant le faible degré technique du titre ainsi que ses missions sans grand intérêt. La volonté de diversifier un peu l'aventure se fait ressentir via les mini-jeux, l'utilisation d'actions contextuelles ou la possibilité de photographier des bad-guys mais malheureusement, ceci ne suffit pas à faire de Spider-Man 3 un jeu à conseiller. Autant aller voir ou revoir au cinéma le plus proche la déclaration d'amour de Sam Raimi à un des plus grands super-héros de tous les temps.

I can only imagine what Uncle Ben would say if he had picked up Spider-Man 3. "You're on next-gen platforms now, Spidey, and you sure as hell don't look it." You know that "PS2 game with shiny characters and lots of bloom lighting" look that plagues PS3 and 360 ports of last-gen titles? It's dripping all over Spider-Man 3. Except it's not a port. Which is almost okay, until it throws in some vicious slowdown whenever you make the mistake of breaking environmental objects.

With great processing power comes great responsibility, and Spider-Man 3 introduces a lot of polygons without fixing any of the broken gameplay. All I wanted, however, was a solid action game where I could wrestle with the suit and do some fun Goblin missions, and I got none of that. Neither should you.

L’ami Spider-Man se contente donc de tisser sa toile dans des décors d’une laideur innommable. Le passage à la nouvelle génération est totalement invisible, et on retrouve toujours autant de bugs. N’oublions pas non plus que le jeu se termine très vite. Le gameplay sent quant à lui le réchauffé. Le jeu, peu amusant, rejoindra vite votre étagère. Spider-Man 3 est donc la honte de la PlayStation 3.
