Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is sort of different because it is not tied to a Movie the creators had a real opportunity to create a unique experience. Unfortunately, it winds up being just generally average. For every positive in the game, there is an equal negative dragging the overall experience down. While better than last year's Friend or Foe, it still does not rank up with some of the better Spidey games of days gone by."
