I have to say I enjoyed the game very much, and would have given it an 8
were it not for two very annoying flaws. The first is that the positions
taken by the "camera" were often appalling. Sure you can manually move the
view point around, but in the heat of the moment when surrounded by
you simply don't have the time. I found some parts of the game extremely
frustrating because of this. The second is that the loading times are
excessive, and in my view occasionally unnecessary. Ok, you expect to have
to wait for a new level to load, but when you die you have to wait for the
current level to re-load.
I think both these flaws are a result of sloppy programming, or maybe the game just needed to spend more time in development instead of rushing a release to coincide with the film. It's a shame, because I very much enjoyed the variety in the gameplay, and the degree of control that, with practise, you can exercise over Spidey. Overall, then, I give it a 6.
I played this game a little bit at my cousins house when i was about 10 and i didn't know much about spidey until the movie itself however after the movie i really wanted the game and i bought it for my gamecube and the game was so much fun i couldn't leave my room for hours the graphics were bold the villains were cool and the combos were quick and fun to execute however there were a few drawbacks i found 1 was the web swinging which all you do is shoot a webline in the air and swing no connection to buildings at all the 2nd was controlling spiderman in general i didn't know if this is just my game but it felt like spidey had a mind of his own and would often more or less run or walk even when i was not touching the buttons but despite these drawbacks i loved it and it has become 1 of my favorite games of all time GO SPIDEY GO
This game plays like that game as far as the combat and swinging is concerned, however the story is lifted from the first Spider-man movie. Well a lot of it is anyways as there are a lot more enemies to face than just the Green Goblin here. Well not to many more, mainly you get to fight The Shocker who seems to be the old standby in these games, Scorpian, and the Vulture. I think in the Xbox version you get to fight a couple of other bad guys one of which is Kraven the Hunter and the second of which I do not know. Tobey and William lend their voices to this game, however Bruce Campbell as the tour guide steals the show as he had me cracking up. The game is good for the most part, I just thought it followed the movie a bit to much and like in the Spider-man game for the playstation one Spider-man seems to be swinging on a web that is attached to absolutely nothing. The fights with the characters are fun as I enjoyed fighting the Shocker and Green Goblin the most. The fights in this game with the Green Goblin top the fights with Doc Ock in the next game. Still the levels on the roofs are a bit of a pain at times, you get stuck in that stupid costume longer than I care for, if they were going to follow the movie so closely why did they not incorporate the fight with Bonesaw in the main storyline of the game, and there are various other little annoyances in the game to be found as some of the fights and stealth stuff gets on one's nerves. Still, at least this game did not ignore Spidey's strength like part II and III did. Though both those games are the superior web swinging games.
I only started seriously gaming around 2001-2002, and this was the
first game I ever really got into. By far it is the most fun E-Rated
action game there is.
First of all, there are the dozens of creative, entertaining levels. The basic plot of the game follows the movie very well, and every few levels will be part of the main storyline. In between your fights with the Goblin and other villains from the movie are the best parts of the game: Battling the Shocker, The Vulture, the Scorpion, and hordes of robots and other henchmen.
Secondly, there are what seems like a million combo moves which can be picked up throughout the game to keep it more exciting.
Further, even though it does follow a specific story and doesn't allow a lot of freedom web-swinging-wise (at least, compared to its sequels), there are secret areas, shortcuts, easter eggs, and bonus objectives enough so that each time you play the game it can be an entirely new experience.
My personal favorite parts of the game are the scores of special features. If you defeat the game at the hardest setting, you get a Green Goblin costume and Glider which, in addition to completely changing game-play, gives you a whole new (often more interesting) storyline to follow. In addition to this, there are the training missions, including my favorite, Big Brawl, which are loads of fun and offer even more of Bruce Campbell's hilarious narration.
Though this game is intended for younger gamers, it can be incredibly fun at times, and remains one of my all-time favorites.
Spider-man the movie game looks soooooo great, for a 2002 playstation 2
game, the graphics are amazing, it wouldn't be a mistake to pick this
up just for graphics, the gameplay is tight too, sometimes the swinging
can feel awkward but not really. Voice acting is great in this game too
and the levels are all really fun. Great adaption of the great movie.
The only thing that makes this not superior to 2 and 3, is the non-ability to freely roam around new york, but it is still a solid action game that's defanitly worth the buy.
Pick this one up, trust me, and it's really cheap anyway haha.
10 out of 10
A lot of movie tie-in games ain't too successful but this is OK cause you're
The plot's pretty much the same as the movie except there's other baddies to fave other than the Green Goblin.
As cool as it is to swing around New York city like Spider-man, the floor combat ain't that good. All you have to do is punch and kick. You can get combos but they're pretty pointless. Another problem is the camera, it keeps moving and going the wrong places!
Some cool features is that Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe reprise their roles. Unlike the movie, Spider-man says more jokes, making you think Tobey is Spider-man. Bruce Campbell does some very funny voice-over work, watch out for one of the training sessions where he talks about his grandfather, it's very funny.
There are some cool secrets to get so that's pretty worth it.
In the end, it's an OK game but doesn't offer anything challenging.
Spiderman the Video Game is the best adaptation from movie-game transition ever made. What makes the game cooler, is the fact that its like the movie, but with more detail. You get to go after Parker's Killer, save Mary Jane, fight the Green Goblin and also deal with more villains from Vulture, Shocker and the Scorpion. This is more of a crime/fantasy game than what people thought of Spiderman. What's really cool is throwing people off the buildings. As long as their not the victims. Tobey Maguire and Willem Defoe, the main stars from the film portray each other in the game as well. This is what makes Spiderman one of the coolest adaption from movie to game. If i were you, I go out and play this game. No matter what system you have.
This game is great. Not only do Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe lend their
voices, but the animation is amazing, the scenery of New York City is so
cool, and there is lots of cool extras on the game too. It's also
I recommend this game to everyone!
I bought this game after I saw the movie thinking it was equally good, but it is losely based on the movie's story, so other villains like Vulture and Scorpion are on this game, but the final confrontation is with the Green Goblin. This game has clean graphics, spidey moves and minimal load times. But it has some faults like for example ubiquitous game play, uninteresting opposition, and occasional camera issues. but hey here I am judging this game when i don't even know how hard is to make a video game especially a good one like this one, so i give it a 10.
The game is not that much different from the original playstation version. The graphics and the sound are better but the gameplay is virtually the same. I was disappointed in the odd camera angles that would sometimes make gameplay frustrating. Also, the game was too short. I realize that this isn't a "final fantasy" or "resident evil" type of game, but please, give me something that's worth my fifty bucks.
