Loosely based on the comic book series, the story opens as Carnage breaks out of an insane asylum and wreaks mayhem. Spider-man immediately sets out to stop him. You start off with Spidey but in certain parts you get to choose between him and Venom, which takes you through an alternate routes. The gameplay is your standard beat-em-up, the regular punching and jump-kicking, with the addition of the all important webbing. Brilliantly animated cut-scenes echo the artwork in the comic-books.

This game isn't an original product based on the general Spider-Man comic-book universe as most super-hero games usually are, instead it is based on a specific mini-series of the Marvel universe called Maximum Carnage. Much like the game, the series begins with Spider-Man's enemy Carnage escaping jail, who after gathering some equally psychotic 'pals', goes out on a killing spree all over New York. This time not even Spider-Man alone can stop him, so an uneasy alliance of superheroes spearheaded by Spider-Man and his nemesis Venom is formed to try and stop the madness. Spanning over 14 issues and encompassing all Spider-Man titles at the time, Maximum Carnage was a massive development by Marvel with lots of guest appearances and remains to this day one of Spidey's most ambitious and certainly most violent (a fact sadly toned-down for the game) sagas ever.
