Jason Bakker Of Metal Arcade Writes:
Gameloft has created some of the best mobile games out there in the past. The Asphalt series, the N.O.V.A. series, the Dungeon Hunter games, Spider-Man: Total Mayhem. They’ve also made countless movie adaptations, and they continue that tradition with The Amazing Spider-Man. Far from a lazy cash-in, The Amazing Spider-Man incorporates a full 3D world to swing around, like its console big brother from Beenox and Activision (review here), based on the brand new movie (review here). It’s not fair to compare this game to its console brethren, which takes advantage of far superior hardware. But for the purposes of this review, I’ll be comparing it to Spider-Man 2, the 2004 PS2 classic, which it has quite a lot in common with.
