Spider-Man: Edge of Time (Xbox 360)

 

With great power comes great responsibility. But along with the burden of protecting the innocent from those who prey upon them, the power that comes with being Spider-Man would surely bring a great deal of fun. To swing through the air as you hunted...

I'm a huge fan of Spider-Man, and as such I'm willing to give Spider-Man games a lot of leeway. Give me a half-decent storyline, Peter Parker crackin' wise, a bunch of Spidey villains, a lot of room to websling, and I'm happy. That doesn't seem like...

Great-looking character designs and environments ; Decent storyline ; Plenty of neat unlockables, from costumes to alternate timeline headlines

The fershlugginer freefall sections ; Annoying boss fights ; Spider-Man is confined to a building

As I mentioned at the outset, I go into Spider-Man games expecting to like them. A Spider-Man game has to work extra hard to make me dislike it, and it feels that this one was going out of its way to disappoint me. I liked the story, I thought the...

Superhero games often carry a stigma of simply being a way to cash-in on fans of a particular franchise. There have been few games in past years that have challenged this preconception, such as Batman: Arkham Asylum and Transformers: War for Cybertron,...

Someone should have reinforced to the developers behind Spider-Man: Edge of Time that with great power comes the great responsibility to not produce another dull and uninspired superhero game. Edge of Time fails to deliver a satisfying experience in...

Last year developer Beenox took over the reins of the Spider-Man franchise for Activision and released their first Spidey inspired title in

I truly believe that Beenox needs to re-look at how they develop their future Spider-Man titles because games like Edge of Time give me little reason to ever want to play another Spider-Man game again. Sure the game is competent, but worth...

There's nothing essential about Spider-Man: Edge of Time. Coming off last year's moderate success experimenting with four different Spider-Men in Shattered Dimensions, developer Beenox have scaled back on just about every aspect. The end product feels...

There is probably some kind of weird mathematical equation that correlates the average scores websites give out, with the number of superhero games that are released each year. It would be trite to say that they all suck, but let's just say that the...

Last seen swinging into a time portal towards the bargain bin, we’d recommend you save your cash until it gets there. Spider-Man: Edge of Time is not especially terrible but is far more mundane than a hero of Spider-Man's ilk deserves.

Edge of terrible

It?s good to see that Val Kilmer can still get work, well done voice acting from various animated Spider-Men

The entire game is the same fight repeated over 8 hours, ditto for the level design, Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099?s constant bickering

I really don't have any idea how many millions of copies the Spider-Man games have sold over the years, but they must at least be breaking even, because publisher Activision has been cranking them out at a furious pace for quite a while now. I think...

While Spider-Man: Edge of Time delivers a slightly better experience than Activision's other similar licensed games this year, it still falls a bit short of the expectations set by last year's Shattered Dimensions. So now, in the last six months,...

Spider-Man: Edge of Time is a great game for Spider-Man fans, but if it had varied locales and more engaging combat, it would be a masterpiece. Nevertheless, it paints a very nice picture for the future of Spider-Man games.

Spider-Man: Edge of Time Review

 

Spider-Man: Edge of Time tells an enjoyably absurd time-hopping tale, but stepping into the tights of its two heroes doesn't feel as empowering as it should.

Snappy writing and solid voice acting liven up the story ; Picture-in-picture storytelling generates some urgency ; Some powers are fun to use

Combat is overly simple ; Environments are often confining ; Only about six hours long

Edge of Time has other frustrations as well, including a poorly designed battle in which you must fight the same boss three times in a row, and you must repeat the entire process from the beginning if you're defeated. And start to finish, the game is...
