Finally, I can't say enough good things about the great voice acting and the appropriately superheroic score. Every actor put in a great performance (especially Tricia "Battlestar Galactica" Helfer as the Black Cat) and the game's story is all the...

Style over substance is the theme of Activision's newest entry into their long running Spider-Man series. Keeping the open world aspect of previous Spidey games, Web of Shadows institutes a fresh new combat system that allows Peter Parker to beat down...

Rent it if you MUST play another Spidey game, otherwise, go play something else.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

 

Back in 1984, Spider-Man picked up some new duds on a distant planet. His familiar red-and-blues had gotten pretty ripped up, and as someone with a secret identity to hide, he needed something to cover himself up with. Enter an alien machine that...

Original storyline ; Acrobatic fights ; Two different costumes give two different sets of moves

Spider-Man's voice ; Wonky camera ; Game-freezing bugs

It's a shame these glaring errors are here, because the game has a lot going for it.

You would think that a universe as rich and deep as Spider-Man's would translate well to the world of interactive video games. Yet for some strange reason Activision has had nothing but problems lately bringing this comic book character to the game...

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is far from a perfect game, but its problems shouldn't keep you from having an amazing time swinging around the fictional New York City. Throw in some of the best boss fights of the year and you have a game that will get your...

It's no Spider-Man 2, but thankfully it's not Spider-Man 3 either.

Great animations; fun combat; different suits bring different styles to Spidey

Camera issues; repetitive objectives; visual glitches

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows Review

 

Almost the ideal Spidey game -- but the grinding and over abundance low level foes drag it down into mediocrity.

The story finally breaks away from the movies with great success, and the fluidity of combat and swinging makes this the best-playing Spidey game yet

It may be the best-playing, but the lack of creativity with missions and the grinding of quests will ward away all but the most faithful web head

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is a near-perfect Spidey game. The core Spider-Man elements people care about are all present, and arguably better than any game to date. Sadly, the developers forgot to find a way to eliminate the grinding feel of the basic...

A Return to Form For the Webslinger

I wasn't blown away, but then again, I'm not the biggest Spider Fan. Nice to see some heart in a game, though, after SM3

Spidey's quality is on the upswing

Pulling off a 200 hit combo ; Seeing Mary Jane wield a shotgun ; Little touches for Marvel fans

Average to subpar voice acting ; Fighting your eight-millionth "zombie ; Most moral choices have little impact on the plot

Spider-Man’s gone through a lot of ups and downs, and even on his best day he's never had what  most critics would call a "masterpiece". Yet when done right, like Shadows mostly does, nothing beats swinging freely through a huge New York skyline,...

Spider-Man's latest has flaws, but it's still a swinging good time.

Product Specifications

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows delivers the deepest combat system ever in the Spider-Man universe, whether it's going vertical up the side of neck-breaking skyscrapers or web-slinging into action over them for high-altitude, high-octane aerial battles. A truly captivating Spider-Man experience combines mesmerizing combat and riveting visual effects with a compelling and unfolding storyline that places gamers in control of the action. With a story penned by acclaimed Marvel comic book writer, Brian Reed, the title features a New York City devastated by a deadly invasion, in which players are faced with the choice to play the heroic web-slinger in his classic, agile red suit or the dark, formidable black suit. Battling with or against a huge cast of fan-favorite Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains, gamers can switch allegiances instantly as they decide which missions will ultimately save mankind. An all-new combat system, built from the ground up, combining web-slinging and customizable superpowers provides gamers the unrivaled opportunity to fight and explore in an open free-roaming and destructible environment. In battle, Spider-Man's speed and agility are tested within the diverse cityscape, challenging players to master fast-moving acrobatic combat, powerful new web-slinging moves and destructive combo attacks, as combat seamlessly migrates from the streets, up the sides of buildings and onto rooftops.
