The first trailer for Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions has been released, following the first screenshots.
I just want this to be halfway decent. I've been looking for a good Spider-Man game to play since Spider-Man 2.
It's not going to happen anytime soon.
It will, just not on this console generation. I think they need Rocksteady to do all the superhero games.
Looks like slightly above Wii graphics from that. Can't get a gauge on gameplay other than they obviously took some notes on stealth gameplay from Batman:AA.
I know it will fail. Look at all the game systems it's on. TGSI
I'm still waiting on a Spider-Man game to top Spider-Man and Venom Maximum Carnage.
Dammit, why can't they just take what worked in Spiderman 2 - web swinging - and build off it? I've never played another game where simply moving around was so much fun. Maximum Carnage is the balls. I still play it all the time.
@James Yes, it is on Wii, and how is that bad? Wii has one of the most addictive games this gen, SMBB.
Spiderman 2 was perfect. I hope this one is as good as Web of Shadows but please let there be replay value!
@1.7 I don't think he was commenting on the ability of any of the systems to put out fun/addictive games. It's because it's on all systems (ps3, 360, wii, psp, ds) that it's very likely to be mediocre at best. Almost any time a game is released on all platforms, it's far from impressive. Think of all the Disney games as an example. The only time it somewhat works is with sports games, but usually the games have had the development split way too much and we are left with games that play as if they were only made to sell based on title recognition ("Spider-Man" in this case). Anyway, I'll keep my expectations low. No way to lose in that situation. If it's bad, meh, I won't care, if it's good, it will be a pleasant surprise (like Batman AA was).
with Bobby Kotick in charge, I might as well just say "FORGET IT"!
Myze is correct! TGSI
Spiger-man Noir? Already I think should have went specifically off Noir not bridging the gap between these two dimensions. Some the elements looked okay I'm not stoked though at least not yet.
"I think they need Rocksteady to do all the superhero games." Cannot believe that u ignored Sucker Punch right there
I hope no idiot buys another spider man game and knowing activision owns the license that's not even worth it.
Yea yea, another terrible spiderman game, knowing it's on the Wii makes it that much less exciting.
i want a sequel to ultimate spiderman, imo that game is still the best comic book game
That was the best Spiderman in my opinion, but still not a great game. Pretty decent though.
Have you played Maximum Carnage?
heck yes, and remember the good spiderman games on the PS one? classics. I loved unlocking all of the comic covers and obsecure customes.
o and maxium carnage was a great game and all, but come on it was just a beat em up. Spiderman 2 change superhero games forever and Ultimate spiderman was the closest we have to be like a comic. Shoot the game actually tied into the ultimate comic books.
doesnt look good to me. just my opinion though.
there is no bigger spiderman fan than me, and this doesn't look good. I hate the noir parts. I'm like yuck are they trying it to be like Batman Dark Asylum? I mean what works for Batman doesn't for spiderman. I hope the other two dimensions are cooler. I hope ultimate or 2099. 1602 could be cool too. Pray to God there is no spiderman india dimension.
The third dimension is a DC crossover!
damnit i got so excited until i saw it was on the wii...
You do realize that this isn't Wii-exclusive, right? It's on the PS3, 360, etc.
ya i only said that because somehow the wii will bring the 360 and ps3 version down
Blastian has a point, look how Web of Shadow turned out, it sucked.
The Spiderman franchise should just die out. I only saw the first movie, but the horrible cliches and acting ruined the experience. Toby Maguire was such a douchbag with awful acting in the first movie, I can't even comprehend how they could make sequels. His acting was so corny, I thought I was watching a b-movie. As for the games, they were just mediocre. Nothing special. I can't believe they think they can keep this franchise alive.
This is a good spiderman game! As a true marvel fan I'm glad to see that you can play as spiderman from the Noir-Universe... Marvel have always been about multiverses and alternative universes... Gr8 to see it on game now!
expect this game to be below average gameplay wise...
visual wise also. spoiled by exclusives...
REALLY COOL :D Even the fact that they impleded the Marvel Noir Universe :D As a real Marvel fan I'm glad to see this game!
I would like to see a great spiderman game like every one else but this will probally be in the bargain bin three months after it is released.
im gonna chime in with, i wish this was being made by rocksteady....
Ultimate Spider-Man was actually good, but Spider-man 3 just sucked. Why did it all go wrong after the success of Spider-man 2 and Ultimate Spider-Man? If only Rocksteady took over, they'd make sure the next Spidy wouldn't suck.
Stay away from it since it's from Activision. Only buy used if you must.
Batman AA... oh wait, Activision is making it? Ah hell, What'll he do, make web slingers paid DLC? Geez, nevermind.
Web of Shadows had incredible gameplay mechanics!!! The voice acting, repetitive missions, and terrible plot made it suffer quite a bit though. Also...some glitches could have been worked on. It's like Prototype... ...except fun! Don't compare it to inFamous though. inFamous is just a much better game. Lol. Web of Shadows was honestly really fun though, guys. I highly recommend renting it.
Any Spiderman game is welcome, but the only thing wrong with the open-world games was the lack of variety and god-awful camera work. I can't help but think changing the formula this much means introducing a host of other problems. I'm hopeful though.
