Craig Harris at IGN had this to say of Spider-Man 3 for the Nintendo DS:
"It's pretty clear that Vicarious Visions needed to do something truly unique for the Spider-Man franchise on the DS -- it's a little hard to expect a user base to blindly snag yet another Spider-Man game after three have already been released in just two years time.
It was a risk to make an all-stylus action game in a design that's usually been a more traditional-controlling experience, but the team pretty much nailed it. The combat system's collision could be tighter and just a little more "fluid," but it's a hell of a lot of fun kicking bad guys' butts with quick flicks of the wrist. Stylus combat works. If anything, this touch screen focus could spawn a new wave of brawler design, and I can't wait to see how this control system evolves in future DS games."
So thus far it sounds as if the DS version of Spider-Man is the best of the pack, earning the highest rating of those reviewed at IGN.
