Not bad, all things considered . . .

The Good
This is much better than "Spider Man and X-Men." The game has a comic book, if somewhat oversimplified, plotline: The Kingpin has framed Spidey and also has a huge bomb timed to go off if our hero doesn't defeat his super-powered henchmen in time to get the clues and the keys. Spidey makes good use of his web shooters to wrap up bad guys, shoot web balls, and swing from place to place. The rogues gallery is pretty decent as well: Sandman, Electro, Venom, Hobgoblin and the Lizard all make appearances. The final battles are appropriately chaotic, and getting to take snapshots of your battles to sell to the Daily Bugle later give it some depth.

The Bad
There's not a lot to dislike. It's hardly cutting-edge these days, but lots of fun. Hardcore gamers will dislike that it is rather simple and comparatively short, but if you want to play a game a few days and see the ending, it's still a satisfying experience.

The Bottom Line
Good for younger gamers (the violence factor is minimal) and those who just want to plug in a game and play it without having to learn a lot of sophisticated control schemes.
