All in all, this is the best Spidey game I have ever played. The frantic side-scrolling gameplay keeps you on your toes, and it fits the Spidey character to a tee. The game's control is rock-solid, and it does a great job of getting across Spidey's lightning-quick reflexes, which you will need if you hope to succeed in this game. The sound of the game is great. Although some of the sound effects are a bit too over the top for their own good. This game does an amazing job at capturing the characters it uses. All of them fit their comic-book personas perfectly. If you are a fan of Spidey, and you are looking for the best Spidey game out there, pick this game up.
Mean Machines (Dec, 1993)
A great improvement over the cartridge version, with loads more levels and variety. A tad too easy though.
The Video Game Critic (Sep 21, 2000)
The graphics are slightly improved, and feature more interesting levels and backgrounds than the first game. Cartoon quality cut-scenes are used to convey the story, and although they can take a while to sit through, they're pretty darn funny (unintentionally?). Other cool features include a password save feature and a gallery of artwork. Thumbs up!

I feel like this one got overlooked as another cash-in CD “remake” of an existing Genesis game, but that’s not the case. They actually took some time with this one, and made a version significantly improved over the original. The missing features aren’t critical to gameplay, and the added ones – new levels, faster movement, the overworld map – are definitely worth the trade. The animated cutscenes are a cheese factory, but at least they made the effort, and most of the CD tracks make for excellent wall-crawling background themes. In all, a pretty great Spider-Man game worth checking out for web-head fans.
GamePro (US) (Oct, 1993)
Spider-Man's in a jam and you'd be be prepared to do some jamming to help him out. Webhead fans have no choice, this is the best web slingin' game around. Now Spider-Man isn't the only one who does whatever a spider can.
Mega Fun (Apr, 1994)
Am actionlastigen Spielprinzip hat sich im Grunde nichts getan, wenigstens haben sich die Programmierer die Mühe gemacht, Grafik und Sound etwas aufzupeppen; so wirkt die CD- Version insgesamt etwas farbenprächtiger und Spiderman krabbelt eine Idee eleganter über den Screen. Na toll. Netterweise bietet der Silberling auch ein paar neue Levels sowie eine Bonusmission (30 Comic-Hefte einsammeln). Modulbesitzer brauchen die CD mangels weltbewegender Neuerungen nicht und CD- Freaks sollten mehr nach Spielen Aussschau halten, die das Mega CD wirklich ausreizen. Trotz allem noch ein ganz nettes Spiel.
Video Games (Dec, 1993)
Bei der CD verhält sich‘s genauso wie mit allen anderen Spiderman-Spielen: Für Fans der Kultfigur interessant, für alle anderen überflüssig. Das opulente Intro begeistert, der Rest des Netzvergnügens ist spielerische Schmalspurkost. Ihr rennt durch immer ähnliche Levels und verprügelt dieselben Sprites. Treue Fans dürfen trotzdem probespielen.

Har du Mega-versionen så nöj dig med den, om du inte tillhör dem som ständigt söker nya sätt att bli av med pengar.
High Score (Jul, 1994)
Så spring och köp Spiderman - men stoppa CD:n i stereon istället och njut av musiken istället för att spela spelet.
