It's no secret that Spider-Man 3 wasn't a very good game; it was riddled with issues that made the game unplayable, such as poor visuals, terrible framerate, and boring gameplay. The first two motion-picture Spider-Man games had once prided themselves on not being the typical generic movie-game. The third one prided itself on nothing...it was nothing short of bad. The aforementioned problems, specifically that horrific framerate, marred anything remotely appealing about Spider-Man 3. So here we are, two years later and there's an all-new, all original Spider-Man game titled Web of Shadows. After our early look at the game, we felt like the game showed signs for a promising adventure, and it seems as though we were right."
