Today I’m reviewing The Amazing Spider-man. I was a huge fan of the PS2 games and have been waiting ever since for something of the caliber with updated graphics and a decent story-line. Unfortunately, this wasn’t that game.
The not so Amazing Spider-man has decent graphics and has some cool storytelling. But the faults are noticeable from the very beginning. Starting with faulty targeting and ending with far too easy gameplay, this game just isn’t up to par with what else is out there. And on a personal note, SINCE WHEN DOES SPIDER-MAN HAVE WEBS THAT LATCH ONTO THE SKY???!!! The funnest part of any spider-man game is the traversing and they crapped on that. This game could have been sooo much more fun had they just payed attention to details. Quite honestly it seems like the creators of this game haven’t read a single Spidey comic book in their lives. I wouldn’t be surprised if they haven’t even seen the movies either.
Get it or Skip it?
Skip it. Usually games like this can still make money because die-hard Spider-man fans will play anything with Spider-man in it. This on the other hand can only be enjoyed by those who aren’t fans because if you were, you’d be a little disgraced by it.
