"A good game.....could have been better though."
Like I said, a good game, but could have been better. The game doesn't really live up to be the sequel. It just didn't get to me. For one thing, it was too short and too easy(even on hard), I beat it in a day in a half without any problems. I'm not saying it's a bad game, it's just that it could have been better. Now, onto the review.
The graphics are the same as from the first Spider Man, nothing new. The in game graphics are good; greatly detailed,and greatly improved. However the movie graphics were just awful. When it cut to a movie scene, and you see people talking, you don't even know who is talking because their mouths are not moving! Also another thing that I noticed was that their hands stick together in a big blob, this isn't really a big problem or anything, but it looks sort of silly. So the graphics are half and half(not good, not bad)
The controls are very simple to understand, same as the first Spider Man. If you haven't played the first Spider Man then don't worry, you will learn very fast.
Pretty much same as the first one. The music fits into the game very well. If you start to fight a thug, the music will get more suspenseful, and when you are finished with him, the music will get back to normal. The sound effects also fit into the game very well. Punching or kicking a thug sounds very realistic.
The game-play could have been a little better. It was actually kind of boring. You would expect something more from a sequel, like new combos or something. But on the bright side there was a new feature called ''Create a Spider.'' You can make a different Spider Man with different powers, which was pretty fun. Also, the bosses seemed a little boring, they could have been more cooler or something, and they could of been a little harder. So overall the game-play was....I would say average.
If you are a true Spidey fan, I am sure you will want to replay this game. After you have beaten it you can do many things. You can search around for the comic books, which is fun and also can be tricky. Another fun thing to do after beating the game is to collect the suits. Each time you beat it, you get a new suit to play in. One last thing you can do is get collect the pictures from Peter's portfolio. And of course you can just play it again for fun!
The game is good, but not great. It was fun, but very short and easy. I recommend to rent it first to see if you like it or not. But if you are a true Spidey fan(like me)then I suggest you buy it right now!
