The Amazing Rip-Off
8 July 2012 | by See all my reviews


I've been playing for maybe an hour or two. Hate this game. Loved Spider-Man 2, 3, and Shattered Demensions. This game is a rushed poorly made 100% rip off of Arkham Asylum/City.

All the combat and flashy moves are done by simply pushing the X button, and you push Y to counter when the Spidey Sense white waves flash around your head. When you web zip to the ceiling, which is with RB of course, all the guys in the room start searching for you saying "where did he go?" and "I know he's in here". And you have to drop behind to do stealth takedowns. There's goons with guns that have the long red target beam, goons with shields, armored goons. You crawl through vents to get around inside buildings and have to solve wannabe puzzles like crashing boxes through walls to move one. And lets not forget the Riddler Tro.. I mean comic books. Plus if you find the audio tape in the level, you get to listen to patient interviews. It's all so innovative and original, 3 years ago.

Then there's the in between, where they couldn't decide if they wanted to make it a game based on the movie, or go completely original with it. The game claims to follow the events of the film, but the characters look, sound, and act nothing like the actors in the movie, as if they tried to make it based on the comics instead. So you're stuck with this weird movie based/original hybrid that doesn't work as nice as that sounds. If they wanted to make an original Spider-Man game, it worked with Shattered Demensions. If they wanted to make a movie based game, it worked amazing with Spider-Man 2 and 3. I don't understand what they were trying to do here.

Then, ignoring all that, there's the game itself. The web swinging mechanic is incredibly dull and boring and requires zero skill. Spider man is constantly running off, jumping over, or bouncing off things and never seems to go where you want him to go. Have fun trying to land on a building without that lame web zip slow motion mode. And have fun scaling a building while you're at it, it either takes forever, or you can run up it, which looks awful. I loved the past wall climbing mechanics. Speaking of buildings, in what city does this game take place? Cause that sure as heck isn't New York. In Spiderman 2 and 3 you felt like you were zipping around the streets of New York City. This feels like the city from the Superman Returns video game. Not to mention the graphics aren't much of an improvement over Spider-Man 3. In some cases they look even worse.

All this from just about an hour and a half playing this game. As a huge fan of Activision's past Spider-Man games, I was severely disappointed in this one. If you're really bored and feel like playing a Spider-Man game, sure, it does the trick. But if you want a good Spider-Man game, or a good game period, look elsewhere.
