Xbox Evolved: Spider-Man: Web of Shadows Review

Xbox Evolved writes: "Since Spiderman hit the big screen a few years ago, the franchise has been a very lucrative one in all entertainment industries. So much so, that even during years when there were no Spider-Man film releases, Activision still tried its best to release a game that year anyway to capitalize on the franchise. While writing off those titles that weren't attached to films as rubbish (Spiderman: Friend or Foe) was understandable and even advisable. But doing the same to Spider-Man: Web of Shadows would be a mistake.

The plot of Spider-Man: Web of Shadows starts off simply enough; we got Spiderman chasing his good buddy Venom. This is where things start to go awry; the symbiote in Venom's suit starts to react and behave strangely once it's in the presence of Peter Parker again. This encounter sets off a chain of events that include Spiderman being consumed by the symbiote again, other super heroes and super villains merging and combining with symbiotes and even citizens of New York City being overcome and infected by the symbiote. With the Avengers and Iron Man nowhere to be found, it's up to Spiderman and a motley cast of Heroes and Villains alike to save New York City and the rest of the world from the absolute mayhem that ensues." (Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Xbox 360) 7/10
