Summary

Great, but don't expect an action packed game

The Good

Fantastic game mechanics. Spidey looks and moves perfectly.

The Bad

Crappy looking civilians, but there are a HUGE number of them. Boss fights are easy.

The Bottom Line

I've been a psychotic Spiderman fan since I could read a comic book. This game is for the comic book nerds who've always wanted to be Spidey. This is as close as you'll get to having his powers, his freedom. Boiling this game down to it's mechanics, it's not much of an action game, the basic missions are repetitive and the bosses are easy. But this isn't an action game, not from where I stand. This game is a flight simulator at heart. You can freely websling through one of the most detailed and beautifully designed gaming environments, a wonderful and fairly accurate recreation of Manhattan, right down to the WTC memorial lightbeams. This game is a labor of love for the comic nerds, with the movie tie-in stapled to it.
