"In what has been a summer of hype for an unusual crop of autumn games, my head's been turned by - surprise - a "Spider-Man" game.
I have considered the virtual adventures of Peter Parker to have been solid games in recent years, miss-able for a games reporter who prioritizes covering that which is potentially excellent. But an Activision press conference during E3 last month included an impressive trailer of a new Spider-Man game's aerial combat. And a demonstration by an Activision producer of that game last week proved to me the game is for real."
