Spiderman: Web of Shadows is a pretty decent effort to bring Spiderman back to the market. With no film release in the near future, it was the whiz kids at Marvel who were able to come up with a story that is respectable in its own right but could've used a little more fine tuning. The characters and voice-acting may be cringe worthy at times, but it's something that can be dealt with for the most part. The use of choice in the game to affect the overall outcome of the game is a nice bonus, but can really go either way depending on how you look at it.
There are several things that can certainly be improved upon and given a tightened up story with less confusion, and a bit more direction in script gamers could have another golden Spiderman game on their hands to take over Spiderman 2. But, until that release comes, Web of Shadows is certainly something that can hold them over for now.
