Web of Shadows is the sixth Spider-Man game for DS. Do gamers really need another one? Apparently yes, as this is by far the best one yet and is probably the best Spider-Man game, period, of the last few years. Even though it's a short-lived experience, it is a must-play for any fan of Spider-Man, Metroid, or the modern Castlevanias. NWR looks forward to seeing more games like this, and hopefully the console Spider-Man developers will take this approach at some point.
* Excellent controls
* Smooth, satisfying combat
* Non-linear, exploration-friendly levels
* Ends too soon
* Too much forced combat
