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.

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.

Nach der tollen Batman Begins-Lizenzumsetzung vor zwei Jahren ist Spiderman 3 das zweite Superheldenvideospiel, das ich ohne große Bedenken jedem Fan der Comics, der Filme oder einfach von Actionspielen empfehlen kann. Mich hat Spiderman 3 gut 10 Stunden richtig in seinen Bann gezogen, allein die Storymissionen sind an Abwechslung und Action kaum zu überbieten. Aufgrund des zuweilen recht happigen Schwierigkeitsgrades und der schwachen Kamera sollte man allerdings kein absoluter Genreneuling sein. Wer die Vorgänger bereits mochte kann jedenfalls ungesehen zugreifen, Teil 3 ist fraglos das beste bisher erschienende Spiderman-Videospiel. Für den nächsten Teil sollten die Entwickler aber frischen Wind in das Superheldenleben bringen, auf Dauer langweilt die ewige Verbrecherjagd in Manhattan dann doch ein wenig, sei sie auch noch so toll präsentiert.

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.

Auf 360 und PC gibt es zwar auch das eine oder andere technische Manko, allen voran die stark schwankende Kulisse, doch das Gesamtpaket ist hier rundum besser – auch wenn man trotz Verfeinerung des bewährten Vorgängers nicht ganz die Qualität erreicht, die man sich von dieser Fortsetzung gewünscht hätte. Doch es macht immer noch einen Heidenspaß, sich durch ein lebhaftes Manhattan zu schwingen oder Superschurken wie Kingpin oder Sandman zu zeigen, wo der Spinnenhammer hängt. Ganz zu schweigen von den interaktiven Cutscenes, die teilweise atemberaubend inszeniert sind und nahtlos in den Filmen Platz finden könnten. Es ist allerdings schade, dass in keiner der Versionen eine englische Fassung implementiert wurde. Die deutschen Sprecher sind insgesamt zwar in Ordnung, doch im englischen Original kommt deutlich mehr Stimmung auf.

Die Videospielumsetzungen der Spider-Man-Filme bleiben auch im dritten Anlauf gute Actionkost für Fans der Movies und Comics. Die Action wird in sehr abwechslungsreichen Missionen klasse präsentiert, auch die neuen QuickTimeEvents fügen sich gekonnt in das Gameplay ein. Ein wenig schade ist freilich, dass man wieder einmal nur durch Manhattan schwingen darf, auch das Abwassersystem oder die U-Bahnschächte bringen nur kurzzeitig den Hauch etwas Neuen. Spaß macht das Schwingen durch die engen Straßenschluchten aber allemal, zumal in diesem Bereich die Steuerung auch vollkommen überzeugt. Bei den meiner Ansicht nach zu hektischen und daher oftmals unfairen Kämpfen sorgt die Kamera dagegen immer wieder für mangelnde Übersicht. Einige Missionen sind auch einfach zu schwer ausgefallen, gerade bei einem Lizenzspiel, das größtenteils von seiner Präsentation lebt, fehlt es mir einfach an Motivation, einige Szenen über ein Dutzend Mal zu probieren.

I enjoyed swinging through Spider-man 3 even though I felt that game tasks were becoming more and more repetitive as I progressed. The game is solid, graphically pleasing, and fast-paced. Spider-man 3 even includes the periodic jabbing humor you would expect from a Spider-man endeavor. I found Spider-man 3 to be surprisingly well-designed for a movie marketing game, and I would recommend it to all superheroes fans out there who have a newer PC system.

"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.

It's not a complete disaster by any means, especially if you have an X360 gamepad, but it is mostly a re-hash of the previous Spider-Man games, rushed to match the movie release. Recommended only for the die-hard Spidey fans who want a complete collection.

Tollkühn wie immer präsentiert sich Peter Parker auch in seinem dritten, mit Abstand besten Videospiel-Auftritt. Obwohl Spider-Man 3 das Genre nicht revolutioniert, versprüht es doch jederzeit den Charme der Filmvorlage. Durch das stimmige Kampfsystem, die toll inszenierten Quick-Move-Events und den aus dem Film bekannten Oberbösewichten lässt das Spinnenabenteuer das Klischee minderwertiger Kinofilmumsetzung weit hinter sich und trifft mit seiner abwechslungsreichen Missionsvielfalt genau den Nerv der Spidey-Anhänger.

I think the movie tries to have everything in it – y’know, action, romance, comedy….and the GAME is the same thing. There are sandbox elements, as well as puzzles, stealth missions, races, and LOTS of beat-em-up. Lots of voice acting from Toby Maguire is good, and movie-goers that were disappointed in the lack of Venom will get another crack at him here. I’m giving it 7/10,

In the end, "Spider-man 3" for the Xbox 360 is ultimately a good game. Though some camera issues and control tweaks do hamper the game from being a truly amazing title. On the other hand, the addition of the action sequences and wide range of activities is a welcome sight to the Spider-man franchise. If only the small control issues could be resolved then this would be a great new direction for the Spider-man franchise to be heading. Through all this, the Spider-man game franchise has established itself as one of the few, if not only, movie tie-ins to achieve such high critical praise and commercial success. Hopefully more movie tie-in games look to the 'Spider-man game' series for inspiration and instill part of it into their own as a means to try and reach Spider-man‘s level of quality.

Spiderman 3 is a quality game that is probably too much of a fun thing. It hasn't really changed since the first game, despite the next generation consoles power, and that ultimately is the biggest disappointment. Those who haven't played 1 and 2 will find a top game, but those who have will be wondering just where the innovation has gone.

Otherwise, you'll either love or hate the hyped-up combo-fueled melee. I often wonder what it'd feel like tying my fingers in pretzels, and now I know. Spider-Man 3 is the Twister of punch-kick slap-downs, one of the most frenzied onslaughts of digital derring-do I've wrung my metacarpals through since Ninja Gaiden. And that's using a gamepad -- don't bother at all with a keyboard and mouse.

Spider-Man 3 is very much a game of two halves, the conventional game elements with their inherent problems actually get in the way of the fun you can have just 'being' Spider-Man. With its well balanced and intuitive control scheme you'll have far more fun swinging through the vast city hunting out tokens, taking part in time trials, snapping photos and simply sightseeing than you will performing your crime fighting tasks where the far clunkier button bashing combat and quick time set pieces let the whole thing down. With each game Treyarch are edging further down the road towards creating the perfect Spider-Man game, if they can just smooth out the combat and rethink the dull boss battles they'll stand every chance of reaching that target next time. As it is there are still hours of fun to be had in Spider-Man 3, just not perhaps where the developers expected you to find it.

By and large Spider-Man 3 is a competent game, and we dare say that younger, more casual players will probably lap it up. Yet for us, it just smacks of lazy design, and it’s a real shame that the huge city, great web slinging mechanics and fun combat are let down by a lack of compelling mission-based gameplay. In short, the bulk of the gameplay just isn’t that much fun and often crosses over into frustration. In many ways Spider-Man 3 is a lot like the film it’s based around – a melting pot of characters, action and set pieces that sounds good on paper, but fails to come together in a satisfying way. This is a gaming dish that has all the ingredients for a feast of sights and sounds, but in the end, it just tastes like vanilla.

Ich kann mir vorstellen, wie die Entwicklung von Spider-Man 3 vonstatten ging: Massenhaft coole Ideen wurden gesammelt, eine riesige Stadt gebaut, unzählige Missionen entworfen. Dann rückte der Starttermin des Films immer näher, und plötzlich wurde die Zeit knapp. Spider-Man 3 wirkt jedenfalls an vielen Stellen unausgegoren und lieblos zusammengepanscht. Vor allem bei der Balance und der miesen Performance hätte etwas Feinschliff Wunder gewirkt. Schade, denn übrig bleibt ein nur durchschnittliches Actionspiel.

Nicht nur beim Gameplay hat das Spiel Stärken und viele Schwächen, auch was die Technik anbelangt. Während die Charaktere gut umgesetzt sind und den Schauspielern des Films ähneln, sind viele Innenlevels eher detailarm und trist. Die Stadt ist hübsch in Szene gesetzt und wirkt lebendig, zwingt dafür aber Ihren Rechner in die Knie. Auf mehreren Computern, sei es unter Windows XP oder Vista, bekamen wir das Spiel nicht durchgehend ruckelfrei auf den Bildschirm.

Spider-Man 3 delivers on several aspects of what is to be expected from a superhero game. Allowing the player to not only be one of the most recognizable superheroes, but to decide which path you will go down as the friendly neighborhood Spider-man. There are several things that make this a must buy, though a word of caution. If you are not an avid PC gamer, you may not be able to get used to the wall crawler swing on your computer screen. Also, be sure to check the system requirements before you dive into the world of Spider-man. As I said earlier, swing by and web your copy of this superb Spider-man game, despite its faults. Excelsior!

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.

Because the game applies to everyone, it will only half please everyone. In an effort to make it a family game, they made it a little too simple. However they did fit a LOT into the game, so at under 20 hours, you’ll feel like you got your money’s worth. Lots of polish, but just a bit lacking in the fun factor. 6.5/10 from me.

For the next (inevitable) Spider-Man game, I’d suggest Activision tap the talents of some of the writers of the comic book to pen a story – or hell, even adapt one of Spidey’s more classic comic stories – and use that as a basis for a game. In the comics, New York and surrounding areas is the home of some of the most recognizable superheroes including Dr. Strange, The Avengers, The Fantastic Four, and the X-Men so why not do something with that rich source? Ultimate Spider-Man acknowledged this, why can’t it be done with a “realistic” world and a richer environment? The main components of the Spider-Man 3 – the fighting, the webslinging in a wide-open environment, lots of villains – are spot on but most everything else just feels somewhat incomplete or at least unpolished, particularly the story.

Overall I am left somewhat disappointed with this instalment of the franchise. On the surface it’s a great rental but I cannot recommend the purchase of this title to any mature gamer out there may who enjoy this style of gameplay. The game ultimately comes across as unfinished and unfortunately gets thrown into that large group of movie based games that have failed to live up to gamers expectations.

Xbox 360Extreme Gamer
It’s hard not to be negative after playing Spider-Man 3, this is partly because I loved the other Spider-Man games and this new version feels like its reversing the progress Treyarch has made. If this was the first Spider-Man game from Treyarch all this review might have gone a little better, but it’s simply not. Spider-Man 3 is part fun, part frustration, and part boring. Spider-Man die hard fans will still be able to find some fun within this game, after all it is Spider-Man. Casual fans you might want to rent an older version I suggest Spider-Man 2: SE or Ultimate Spiderman while we all wait for the next Spider-Man game to be spun.

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.

In the end I would only suggest this game to real Spider-Man fans. Other gamers get a game with average gameplay, a couple of fun moments (like the webslinging through the city), a disappointing story and an underachieving presentation. Not really worth spending your hard-earned money on.

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.

Despite all the criticisms I have made the game is quite playable. It will offer most gamers a distraction for a weekend. If you are looking for a more enjoyable super hero experience then I would definitely recommend Crackdown as it is superior in every way, plus after the HALO 3 beta finishes you’ll be able to get a 2nd hand copy very cheap.

So, the final verdict is self-evident. With all due respect to the creators, this game feels like it was rushed every step of the way (and I hear it's the same with the console versions). Pushing the developers to make the deadline, aligning it with the movie premiere, resulted in an intolerably lackluster gameplay frame if you will. If you cannot resist the temptation to web-swing through NYC, don't forget to bring a few tranquilizers to numb the inevitable pain from dealing with terrible frame rates, crappy camera and not exactly consistent single-player mission design.

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 ist schon irgendwie eine Enttäuschung, auch wenn das Spiel nicht wirklich schlecht ist. Eben nur ziemlich mittelmäßig. In der getesteten 360-Fassung kratzt es nur gelegentlich am Next-Gen-Niveau, erreicht es aber viel zu selten. Das Gameplay bringt kaum Neuerungen ins Genre, lediglich die Quicktime-Events werfen etwas Abwechslung ins ansonsten beliebige Button-Mashing. Leider wird die Story in viel zu viele Einzelstränge zerfasert, sodass nur selten wirklich Stimmung aufkommt und man sich in eine zusammenhängende Erzählung versetzt fühlt. Kleinere technische Fehler trüben das Gesamtbild obendrein. Insgesamt steht also auch diese Filmumsetzung wieder unter dem Motto: Nur für Fans!

Unfortunately, this once-entertaining franchise has lost its luster and become a tedious chore of an experience. There are just too many aspects of the game that clearly needed more time in development. If it didn’t have to coincide with the release of the film, I feel they probably would have pushed the release back a bit until these things are ironed out. This sadly isn’t the case, and we’re left with a game that barely warrants a rental.

Gestatten Sie mir das alberne Wortspiel: Mit der Kamera bin ich spinnefeind. Eine halbwegs anständige (sprich: automatische) Kameraführung hätte Spider-Man 3 zwar nicht zu einem Must-Have gemacht, aber doch zu einer ernsthaften Alternative für Fans von Devil May Cry und Co. Alles in allem bleibt unterm Strich allerdings nicht mehr als eine lieblose Umsetzung mit gravierenden technischen Mängeln, die für Gelegenheits-Prügler schlichtweg zu schweirig ist. Schade drum: Die kurzweiligen Keilereien und funky Flugeinlagen sind eigentlich schon sehr spaßig. Das war's dann aber auch schon.

Det bästa med föregångarspelet var i min mening friheten att röra sig i staden, vilken kvarstår. Spider-Man 3 erbjuder lättsmält underhållning som det är lätt att när som helst ta upp kontrollen och ge sig in i. Samtidigt blandas mer actiontäta moment in, då du snabbt ska trycka på en knappar som visas på skärmen i en viss sekvens. Men spelet lider av att inte ha fått den puts det förtjänar. Det hade behövts en eller två månader till i utveckling och det är uppenbart att Treyarch inte hann bli färdiga. Betyget blir därefter.

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 are far from spectacular, and although the random crimes aren't the same events over and over, they definitely reuse the same ideas.

The biggest disappointment with Spider-Man 3 is in the way it settles for “good enough”. What had the potential to be a truly awesome game, instead turned out mediocre. It's certainly possible that Spider-Man 3 just suffers from a deadline to release in time for the movie since the majority of issues plaguing the game seem as though they could have been corrected given the right amount of time to do so. Although most gamers should find that reaching 100% completion of Spider-Man 3, including the games 43 Achievement, will keep them busy for a while, it comes at a cost of being able to ignore the game’s shortcomings. Of course, Spider-Man 3’s lack of Xbox Live play really doesn’t help much either.

The PC version is a very weak game. The amount of graphical glitches we spotted alone, whether in the form of camera-crazies or Z-clipping, would normally have been enough to make us cast a dubious eye over the game. The fact that these graphical problems are the just the tip of the iceberg isn't a very good sign either. The difficult combat, the landmark lacking environment and the awful models and voice acting; all of these mount up against Spider-Man 3 and weigh very heavily on its score. The on-rails sections of the game, which are mainly used to navigate Spider-Man through difficult corridors, could have proved to be a highlight of the game. Instead, they are ruined by being too unforgiving, and are left feeling very out of place in this badly put together game.

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.

If you're desperate for a Spider-Man game, Spider-Man 3 will fill your need for webs -- but I urge you to get it on another platform because the PC version is a bust. On other platforms, I was lenient on the game because even though the missions were terrible, the web-swinging was fun. Sadly, that's not the case here. The swinging through the city on the PC is cumbersome and awkward. You'll never feel like you're Spider-Man if your wielding webs with your keyboard.

At its heart Spider-Man 3 is a boring game with high production values and a big license attached to it. The developers have done a good job of recreating New York City, and we appreciate the freedom the game allows. Graphically the game can look spectacular, but there doesn't seem to be a PC that can run it well. The music is solid, and most of the A-list Hollywood cast from the film voice their characters in the game. It's easy to see how appealing this all looks on paper. Sadly, once you load the game up and get playing, it quickly becomes obvious that this is really just a rushed port that isn't worth your time.

"Spider-Man 3" para PC não tem as mesmas qualidade da versão para Xbox 360 e PlayStation 3: para rivalizar em termos e visual, é necessário uma configuração muito alta, e nem mesmo o passeio por Manhathan é satisfatório. Os combates são ruins, e as missões, pouco interessantes. No fim das contas, a Activision ainda está devendo um jogo que esteja a altura do Homem-Aranha. Quem chegou mais perto foi "Spider-Man 2" para consoles.

While high production values give the game a polished feel, Spider-Man 3 is anything but. Glitches are a problem, and on top of everything else wrong, the title simply falls flat. Spider-Man should stick to Hollywood.

I really wanted to like this game because I’m a fan of Spider-Man, but with this latest incarnation on PC, I can’t help but be greatly disappointed. Nothing stood out, which is quite rare because even the worst of games at least get graphics or the something else right, but not so with Spider-Man 3. Even for the most ardent fans out there, I cannot recommend this game. There are far too many problems to warrant a purchase, at least on the PC platform. However, if you’re lucky enough to own a PS3 and Xbox 360, then Activision’s game might be worth considering but for the PC, flee this game like the plague.

Een vervelende camera, matige graphics, nare gameplayfoutjes: genoeg redenen om dit spel momenteel te negeren en het te laten voor wat het is, een overdreven duur spel wat de 60 euro absoluut niet waard is. Het enige wat nog wel voor een glimlach op het gezicht kan toveren is cultheld Bruce Campbell, want zeg nou zelf, waar waren we zonder hem?

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.
