CVG: CEO Bobby Kotick tells us what we've suspected for years...
No kidding. Last good one was Spider-Man 2 (the movie game).
see what I did
No I don't. Explain what you did there!
"Our Spiderman sucked" Finally, a reasonable and truthful comment from Kotick :D
And yet they still released them.Thanks Activision.
So, can I have my money back? Though the only one I ever bought was Spiderman 2,
I did love Spiderman 2 almost wholeheartedly. It was my second favorite movie-to-game-game. Nothing could top the way Lord of the Rings the Two Towers felt like I was actually playing the movie. I played that game so many times it's sad. But I just loved swinging around in Spiderman 2. Nearly everything in that game just clicked with me. edit: Oh and I loved that old one where you could only swing twice. This one http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Loved that one.
ROFL! Bubbles Cheese. TGSI
I don't think it's all about quality. I think it's more a profit thing! I can rest assured that if being asked what game of theirs doesn't suck, he'll say MW2! although that 1 SUCKS hard with all the glitches and broken MP! and all other games also SUCK because all of them are not selling like their overhyped POS! ps: he'll side with Mario though
Kotick probably didn't even know they made Spider-Man games until he was handed some papers on what he needed to say for better PR.
"Bobby Kotick: Our Spider-Man games 'sucked" Ah... and now you Realise? -_-
So do 50% of you CoD games. And how about less filler in GH while we're at it. WTF's GH Guns N Roses?
Bobby Kotick: "We make games OTHER than '(Insert music genre) Hero' and 'Call of Duty?'"
there are more games that sucked... besides spideman games...
especially the latest one.. cant remember the name...
See what i did ?
Bobby Kotick: "Our Spider-Man games sucked...but I would have loved charge you more than $60 for them."
the best one, it was actually good
The contract with Marvel and/or Sony Pictures has expired. :P
Spiderman 2 was actually fantastic, but sadly it was the last one.
Spider-man 2 didn't have the same graphical quality of Spider-man 1 for the PS2, but the gameplay was far superior. The Spider-man games on the PS1 were also pretty good. Everything from Spider-man 3 on have just been disappointing.
I'm glad that they see how bad their previous games were. I hope Activision took some notes from Eidos. those guys brought batman's popularity back up again in the gaming industry.
Web of Shadows was actually VVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRYYYYYY YYY FUN! The dialogue sucked balls though...
yea web of shadows, was pretty fun, even though it was a bad port on the ps3 side. especially with all the screen tearing.
kotick's still an @sshole =]
Spiderman 2 sucked... The only Spiderman game that was actually decent in the last 10 years was the 1st one, and it even sucked. But it still had more going for it than the others. What kills me is Spiderman 3 had the same exact gameplay as Spiderman 2. Yet, Spiderman 2 doesn't suck but Spiderman 3 does??? Please... They all suck. Equally. Don't pull punches or play favorites. The bad thing is these idiots have been working on Spiderman IP for years and years and yet they can't pull off a decent one... SuckerPunch plays around with the superhero concept a bit and lands a homerun out of the gate with Infamous.
The crawling and scailing in that game blows away anything Spiderman has ever done in gaming.
Spiderman needs to go back to code. They need to wrangle the license away from Sucktivison and hand it off to someone capable. Probably someone inside Sony's camp.
Oh, and the reason why Spiderman games suck, like most superhero games... They are all based off the movies and not their comic book roots. Go back to the comics and you'll have some good material to work with. Keep hashing out junk games based on junk movies and you'll get junk everytime.
spiderman 2 was probaly the 1st superhero open world game ever made it was extremley fun even tho combat and missions got extremley repeptitive but it was superb in its own right, one of my favourite ps2 games
weird how Sony makes the movies but don't make the games
I didnt see the appeal neither of Sp2 . I can only certify that the next ones are even worse . And in my case i'm not a fan of SP2 because i'd rather have a less "realistic" game and closer to comics one . Anyway i found it boring and repetitive , even if decently done and open . I must confess that i'd rather see a closed and heavily scripted action adventure game . Doesnt mean you still wouldnt crawl and swing around . but feels better to me than gta with ropes . A next gen maximum carnage like experience would feel better to me than gta spiderman .
Spiderman 2 pretty much perfected the swinging mechanics. 3 then went and completely ruined them. Please don't compare the two games as equals.
Spider-Man 2 was addicting. Acrobats n stuff. Greatest movie game ever. No, im sure its the only movie game that doesnt suck, or ripoff other gameplay elements.
Ever heard of Goldeneye?
Chronicles of Riddick was steller for a "movie" game
I wasn't the only one who liked Lord of the Rings the Two Towers on the PS2 was I?
Yes. Ever heard of Doom?
- @ Saaking dude, many kids haven't gotten the chance to play the N64 and think everything from the Xbox onwards is every game ever. its not their fault.../s
@reservoiirdog no I loved the first two, the 3rd one not so much.
Was the latest descent Spiderman game in my opinion.
Boby still suck.
Our games suck and we overcharge them you got that right bobby.
Call of Duty 4 was gud :) Can't say the same from MW2 though.
Spider-man 3 was rushed to be released around the same time the movie was, which resulted in a glitchy and ugly unstable game.
Was on the mega drive / Genesis imo.
if you mean Maximum Carnage (also on snes) then yes
Maximum Carnage was good (hard to believe it was made by Ljn. o.o). The PS1 Spider-Man game that was developed by Neversoft was also awesome.
Gamers: CEO Bobby Kotick and all the games activision milked 'sucked'
It's worth noting that Activision also just released Modern Warfare 2. Co-incidence?
atleast they can admit the truth..
wow we knew this already
the best spiderman game was Infamous on the ps3 and i can't wait to see Infamous 2. it is the best super hero sand box game ever and it exposes how bad and inferior other sand box games are.
What he meant to say was Modern Warfare sucked.
with a few exceptions =)
Hopefully we can see an awesome Spiderman game come this year or next year!
after they saw batman AA they said that ... well you can learn from batman game and do great spider-man game
All this site did was paste a part of the game informer article on they're site and then they threw they're 2 cents on to the end. How is this even considered journalism?
The only good Spider-Man was Spider-Man 2 (movie game) It featured an open world, really fun web slinging, interesting missions and funny side characters. Anyone remember the Mysterio boss battle?? That was friggin hilarious! "Mysterio!? I think I had a bowl of mysterios for breakfast!"
Off topic: Not hating on MW2 or CoD4 - I own both - but in all seriousness they are the EXACT same game. Like, i mean exact same. As in, there is no difference. You might be able to pull a "They changed the HUD. and the ranking system! So HA!" or something like that, but that's not a big enough change to say that CoD4 was amazing and MW2 sucked.
have you eat a kind of food that you really like and them Bam! you buy it again in another place and is just not the same but it have the same ingredients and all that but it haves a different flavor to it. what got me really hard about mw2 was the whole new idea of the camping i hate those guy Really do
I liked the free roaming Spiderman game but it did get repedative after a while. The only one I truly liked was Maximam Carnage on the Snes god I wish Maximum Carnage was avalible on the PSN or XBL i would replay it again.
I loved that game... (in reference to Maximum Carnage)
I spend many days after school on Spiderman 2. I just got it from Gamestop to play on my ps3 to relieve the good ol' days.
i thought Ultimate Spider-Man was fun. the only downer is it was short. it was fun, playing as Venom and beating up Wolverine. i thought Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, was also fun. although there was no neutral ending, nor could you play as anybody else. i think Ultimate Spider-Man spoiled me, and i want to play as Venom now.
Spiderman for the PSX was a great game IMO
Hmmm... when do you think they'll find out that Tony Hawk went downhill?
I never liked SM1 as it was too hard and just thrown together. SM2 was refreshing as web slinging had never been done like that before. The combat could have been better, but was improved in the PS3/360 sequel. Ultimate Spider-Man was disappointing to say the least but the next Gen SM3 was alot of fun. Web slinging was smoother, but not as thrilling somehow. Graphics were good and the combat was excellent(Im sure people complained because you couldnt button mash, you had to learn combos and timing to be even decent...shooters have really messed gamers up because of how plain they are). The GOW button sequences got harder and harder as progression through the game. The last bosses were challenging during the 0 mercy button sequences, but fun. The Wii/PS2 SM3 was VERY disappointing, as everything was halfway done and much different. I played the PS2 version and beat it before ever playing the PS3 version. It was like night & day. SM3 (PS3/360 was the last good SM3 game.
the best spiderman i ever played was maximum carnage and separation anxiety; of course activision didnt made them
The spiderman game that neversoft made (it wasn't a movie tie in) was awesome. I had it for the psx. Not sure if it aged well but me and all my friends liked it.
but remember Ultimate Spider-Man? I want a sequel for that game it was awesome!
