IGN writes: "In the end, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is a missed opportunity. Activision and Treyarch were given a blank slate to create whatever Spider-inspired tale they wanted, and they put together a game starring a whiney hero, a foggy story, repetitive gameplay, and a focus on pretty combat combos instead of engaging combat mechanics. Web of Shadows is better than the last Spidey game to make it to the market, but that's not a ringing endorsement. If this game makes your spider-sense tingle in a good way, I'd suggest renting or waiting for a price cut before taking the plunge.
Web of Shadows has its moments of fun, but they're lost in a sea of gafs that True Believers are likely to revile."
