Spider-Man is remarkably enjoyable, but don't be too picky. Some minor controller and graphical issues make this game far from the most polished kid on the block. Having said that, games are first and foremost about fun, and Spider-Man certainly is that. Our suggestion is to toss aside cares about fussy details and nitpicking and dive into what the best adaptations of a comic book to a game that you'll ever find, period.

Spider-Man delivers on its most obvious premise: you get to feel like a costumed comic hero. Despite its niggling issues, Spider-Man will satisfy trapeze-artist envy from the safety of your computer.

Despite a few glaring problems that could be fixed with a few game patches, Spider-Man is fun, addictive, clever and worth your attention. Perfect for a “pick it up, put it down” game that can be played for a bit without any time investment or something for your kids, the game is just a casual kind of fun that’s been missing these days.
Mac Addict (Jun, 2002)
In addition to pad-dependent controls, the story is linear, and graphics are flat and underwhelming. Nevertheless, the game captures the spirit of classic Spider-Man comics and weaves a web of pure gaming enjoyment. If you're down with Spidey, you'll chuckle over the basic silliness of the story and swing straight into the action.

I can't help but compare Spider-Man to Oni, a game I liked slightly more. They share that mixture of hand-to-hand and weapons combat, sparse graphics, a compass system, and more. In each of these, however, Oni does the better job. They're also both surprisingly non-violent for combat-based games...well, non-violent in that they don't show blood. I guess it's okay to punch, kick and throw people to certain death off skyscrapers just as long as you don't see any blood or leave bodies lying around. Someone explain that to me.
