There is only one word for this game: Amazing! First of all the graphics are amazing in this game. I played a lot of open world games mimicking New York City like Grand Theft Auto IV, Prototype 2 or the previous Spiderman game Web of Shadows and this looks by far the best! Swinging around in the city is absolutely fun but when it comes to fights in the air with robots i.e. this becomes pure awesome action. The boss fights are well made and among the best I have seen. What I like too is the cool patter by Peter Parker. When listening to it you get the feeling he's a really nice guy. Very good game and everyone who enjoyed the comics or movies (BTW: this game has nothing to do with the latest movie ;) ) should get this game!

Not worth it even if it's on sale. I very rarely make a conscious decision to stop playing a game. Most of the time I just kind of lose interest. This game is an exception. The most important thing about any Spiderman game is the feel. I forgiven a lot of mediocre Spiderman games because ultimately, they were still fun to play. This game feels wonky. Uncomfortable. Not fun. The camera is frustrating. The controls feel slightly off. It's not worth your time. I recommend shattered dimensions if you haven't already played it, or Web of shadows.

I honestly did not expect myself to enjoy this game as much as I did. I've only played one other spider man game and I believe it was the one on the Nintendo 64. Of course the controls for swinging takes getting use to but its not too bad and the controls are actually very comfortable to use. The story was fine, Kinda got a little bored with it and left it alone, but I'm eager to get back to the game and finish it. The graphics are standard, they're not too bad for the year it came out.

A surprisingly good movie tie in game. The game is very similar to the Batman Arkham series, just a little more rough around the edges and no real gadgets. There are multiple side missions to do, though each one is very short. The only technical issues I ran into was pop in textures, a few glitches, and the game crashed on me three times within 13-14 hours of play time.

If you enjoyed the Batman games and like Spider Man as well, you'll really have fun with this title.

I think this is one of the most repetitive games I've ever played, still, as Spiderman fan I enjoyed it.
It's really bugged, it's almost unplayable if you have Antialising and some "high" settings enabled :/ And after messing with the config still crashes often. I think the only time I quit the game because I wanted to was when I finished it.

I only recommend this if you like Spiderman and you get it really cheap, otherwise just skip it.

I once also read reviews about this game, and what I found was mostly negative.
But I still decided to get the game and I didn't regret it. Sure it has some flaws and it crashes quite often, but despite that I had a lot of fun. The story sets after the first Amazing Spiderman Movie, but it doesn't really matter if you didn't watch it. You start of by doing your first mission and after that you can choose between swinging around in the city or continuing the storyline. The sidequest makes you earn special features like concept arts etc. Although they are repetitive, it's fun just to swing around the city and finishing them. I played this with a 360 controller and the controls are something you need to get used to.

The story itself isn't mountain moving, but it isn't completely bad either. There aren't a lot of reasons to replay it after one playthrough, expect going for achievements (beating the game on different difficulties). The graphics could have been better, too. 5/10

Nostalgic web swinging at it's finest
-------------------------------------

The best spiderman game out there since the early console versions.
The story is action packed and there is plenty to do and see.
I completed the story in quite a short time but enjoyed my time in the city that little bit more when I just went for
Idol city swings and beat up bad guys.

+ Great graphics and animations.
+ Large explorable city.
+ Awesome boss fights.
+ Plenty of content to work through.

Reminds me of tomb raider but definitely not as good as tomb raider...but nevertheless it is a neat little action adventure game.....Only part i don't like is the saving of infected people and crazy people...the web slinging action gets kind of overly redundant and boring after some time....Nevertheless people should definitely give this game a try...:)

Twice I've tried to play this game and twice I've had no choice but to stop playing. Aside from the occasional in-game crashes, on both occasions, I got to a point when the stand-alone game launcher just wouldn't launch. The first time I unisntaled and reinstalled. The second time, I'm done and moving on. Is there a fix out there somewhere on the interwebs? Probably. But I don't have the time or the patience to go look for it right now. Maybe after I play some considerably better designed games, I'll come back to this one some day. If your thinking hardware, no, I don't think so. I'm sporting a less than year old ALienware 14. When it worked, it wasn't all bad. Controls were a little clunky, trying web swing around town. But generally a fun game...when it worked.

I have played pretty much every Spiderman game from the SNES to Spiderman 3 on the PS3. I enjoyed them all and assumed I would enjoy this one. That was not the case. One of the few enjoyable features of this game is the web swinging through quite an aesthetically pleasing city. To me it seems like this game was rushed as Hollywood blockbuster films turned games tend to be. There is so much repetition and lazy scenery that the game lacks the freedom and creativity that the previous Spiderman games provided. From it being the same ducts you climb through, to the same fans you must web to get through and the same boring enemies you must fight. I also had a huge problem as every chapter or so the game would crash and I would on occasion need to re-do some of what I had just done. I know this was not my hardware as I can play MUCH more demanding games with no problems whatsoever. In conclusion this is one of the worst Spiderman games I have played and would not recommend it to anyone. Even if a fan of the previous games.

EXCELLENT...NOTHING LIKE OTHER SPIDERMAN GAMES I HAVE EVER PLAYED. USED TO BE A FAN BACK IN THE DAY THEN THE EXCITEMENT KINDA DIED DOWN AND I WAS SICK OF SPIDERMAN FOR A MINUTE. THIS HAS CHANGED ALL THAT AND I CANT WAIT TO PICK UP THE SEQUAL IF ITS ANYTHING LIKE THIS ONE. 10 OUT OF 10...(IM A SUCKER FOR A GOOD GRAPHICALLY ENHANCED ACTION GAME)

ITS REALLY ABOUT TIME TO MOVE ON.....SEEMS LIKE LITTLE LIGHT IS SHINED ON OTHER HEROES THAT COULD BE MADE INTO A GAME OR MOVIE. WOULD LOVE TO SEE A SPAWN, FLASH, STORM, CYCLOPS, COLLOSSUS I MEAN..THERE ARE A LOT OF CHARACTERS TO CHOOSE FROM. IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE THE IRONMAN GAMES ON HERE IF POSSIBLE.

Terrible game. It tries to be too much like the Batman Arkham games and fails on most accounts. Spiderman 2 was a much better game than this.
