J. Jonah Jameson: "This game sucks!"

After a controversial reboot in the comics, a critically panned live-action sequel to the movie series, a slew of less-than-stellar handheld video games, and the general thanklessness that comes with being a public menace, Spidey circa 2008 was due for a good outing in some form or another. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is the 2D counterpart to the high-profile console release on the Wii, PlayStation... read more

"Platform: Nintendo DS Release year: 2008 Developer: Griptonite Spider-Man's well-established control scheme is better than ever in Web of Shadows. Griptonite's take on the character successfully combines non-linear exploration with brawling, making backtracking and gaining new abilites satisfying and the deep combat system a joy to master without favoring one in particular. Spidey's effortless controls, combined with a constantly-adjusting camera, cinematic score, lively voice acting, and effe"

" Howzabout this for a choice? I choose to kick yo' butt rather than punch yo' face! This game has to have one of the best control schemes in all of platforming. I'm a sucker for unique, smooth controls. There's a lot of depth to the combat system as well, and learning it helps in but isn't required for beating the game. When I play this, Spidey's practically an extension of myself - extensions of Spidey included. When I first and second played this game, I don't think I appreciated its control"

“After a controversial reboot in the comics, a critically panned live-action sequel to the movie series, a slew of less-than-stellar handheld video games, and the general thanklessness that comes with being a public menace, Spidey circa 2008 was due for a good outing in some form or another. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is the 2D counterpart to the high-profile console release on the Wii, PlayStation 2 and 3, X-Box 360, and PC, in which the Spidester can explore open-world Manhattan a la Grand Theft Auto. Non-linearity on a 2D plane generally means one thing: Metroid-style gameplay.

All of Manhattan is being taken over by a symbiotic virus, and Peter Parker as Spider-Man thinks he knows just who to see about it. In pursuit of Eddie Brock, the current host to the Venom symbiote that ” read more

Pumpkinate's Video Game Log (51 games items)

"Posted on April 26th, 2012: My ability to critique video games has gotten quite a bit better since the last two times I played this game. That being said, I actually appreciated it a lot more this time. Spidey's controls are a pleasure to make use of, the combat is so deep, and the Metroidvania basis holds up well since getting power-ups and backtracking never seem to be a chore. It's a little short, but it's substantial in length and what's there is amazing. See a more complete review HERE. Po"
