Concept ArtOn the walls of the comic book shops are screencaps from the game and concept art of Spider-Man villains like Kraven the Hunter and The Lizard.
Game WorldThe game includes a totally realistic 3D representation of New York City, with all places accessible. The only way to get to the Statue of Liberty (after the battle with Mysterio) is to hitch a ride on the helicopter patrolling the water. The geography also includes Ground Zero where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center used to be. Wait for night and two columns of light can be seen where they were.
Kirsten DunstAccording to Ireland On-Line, Kirsten Dunst was initially unhappy with her avatar: "I got to approve the video game, the way she looks. They made her boobs gigantic. I was like, 'Tone down the boobs, please!' It was a little ridiculous."
PC VersionThe Windows/Mac version, developed by The Fizz Factor is not a port, but very different from its console counterparts. You cannot swing freely as you are restricted to specific swing targets which limit your movement drastically. Also, the action itself has been numbed down with simplified gameplay.
PedestriansEvery so often, you may hear a pedestrian mutter "Luckily no one suspects my secret identity". Occasionally during an armored car robbery, one of the security guards who is tied up will utter: "If I could just reach... my utility belt". Both are of course references to superheroes and secret identities.
SalesBest selling video game of June 2004.
