VGM: Spider-Man: Web of Shadows Review


"The sound in Web of Shadows doesn't fare much better. The voice work is the biggest offender here, largely because the quality of the acting is suspect. The voice actor for Spider-Man sounds more like a person just reading lines than a person in any sort of character. The humor and one-liners written into the game's script doesn't help, but the effort sounds weak at best. The secondary voice actors are somewhat better, but with the focus on Spidey, you'd think that he'd be better represented in terms of acting. The music fares somewhat better, although it can get as repetitive as the crime fighting missions in the game.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is a game that could have been great, but is crippled by repetition and flaws. When first playing it, Web of Shadows is fun; web travel is great and beating up enemies is mindless enjoyment. Before long, though, the fun fades as you find yourself doing the same things over and over and over again-- beat up these thugs, travel here, beat up these thugs, travel here, fight a boss, get new orders, accomplish this task, rinse, and repeat-- while you experience graphics flaws and painful voice acting which doesn't help the story at all. In the end, you feel more like Errand-Man than Spider-Man, and that's perhaps the biggest insult of all."
