Despite redundant missions and a merely OK swing mechanic I spent many hours exploring NYC through the eyes of Peter Parker in Spider-Man 2. I'd be hard pressed to call it one of the greatest games of the last generation, but with confidence I can say it was one of the most fun. A few years later and I'm still waiting for that next great game featuring the web crawler. Shaba Games impressed me with the ideas of an all new combat system married to the fun swing mechanics of the Treyarch helmed series. Now that Activision has dropped the ball twice in recent memory, I was skeptical of Web of Shadows' potential.
