Spider-Man Games Aren’t As Crap As They Used To Be

An eGamer journalists speaks about Spider-Man in gaming, and how the famous web-slinger has been stepping it up as of late. (PC, PS3, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, The Amazing Spider-Man, Xbox 360)

As they used to be? Spiderman 2 was the best Spiderman game ever, and that's pretty old. I think the newest one is a step in the right direction, but the fact that you could attach a web to the clouds was stupid and completely lost my pre-order. The best thing for me about Spiderman 2 was the fact that your webslinging had physics. You could gain momentum with each precisely timed swing and you'd have to plan out as you went where you had to shoot to catch something solid. That to me, is what made it "amazing". See what I did there? Lol

completely agree. I had a preorder set until I realized that they didn't implement that. It's basically an HD version of Spider-Man 2, first of all, but they couldn't bring back the best part of it.

Also, even Ultimate Spider-Man had that, if I remember, just dumbed down.

And arugably, the PS One Spider-Man games were pretty good for what that generation of tech offered. Hell, the NES and Sega games were pretty good too.

It's everything post SM2 that has been so-so. So this article makes no sense and I refused to read it.

Yeah? Tell that to Activision! After a Support inquiry detailing the fact that my Save file is no longer readable (it's not corrupt), it doesn't matter how good the game is. Activision basically told me "So sorry you're having this issue. Delete your Game Data and Save Files and start a new game!"

Yeah, my $60 was one thing, but the hours lost...worthless (apparently).

I did enjoy the game, but this is a major bug that needs to be fixed and, as far as I'm concerned, it renders the game pointless. You could play an hour, or many hours and you all have the potential to have a broken save file.

Furthermore, Ultimate Spider-Man was one of my favorite, following Spider-Man 2.

Actually I think spider-man games today are rushed money-grubbing crap. Spider-man 2 and Spider-man Web of shadows were great games on my opinion.

Hi guys, I'm the author. And I'm making a different point in the article to the one many of you seem to be thinking. If you read it and still disagree, then I suppose that is your opinion. It is an opinion piece after all

The new spiderman game was crap. It was kinda fun at first then once you realized you were going to be doing this over and over... not so much.
Tody_ZA  +   1230d ago
That's unfortunately a flaw of many sandbox games these days. The gameplay is still good.

Hopefully Deadpool changes that.. Doubtful tho
Rupee  +   1228d ago
@DivineAssault yeah it's not wise, but i've got my hopes up for that game. :)

spiderman 2 was pretty good... Activision fucked it up after that... Luckly the latest one is pretty good.
