Got used to the controls of Spidey 3. Completed the game, with plans to make this guide the very first PS2 Spiderman 3 guide submitted to GameFAQs. Sunday, 06 May 2007 – Did some more on the main walkthrough, whilst still planning on making this guide the very first one submitted to GameFAQs. Monday, 07 May 2007 – Finished the guide! That means completing the game twice since Saturday. Submitted version 1 of the guide. And hey, my guide was the very first PS2 Spiderman 3 guide submitted to GameFAQs. The only other guide is one for the X-Box 360 version. Tuesday, 08 May 2007 – I just checked the number of views my FAQ has obtained, 621 in one day! That’s more than any of my FAQ’s has had in a month! Anyway, after playing through the game a third time I noticed that some button presses in boss fights are random, so I fixed that. Also added photo tips. Wednesday, 09 May 2007 – Wow, this FAQ has obtained more views in one day than all my others combined, so thanks to everyone that viewed it! Also added (with kind permission) the current map with the locations of the Meteorite Fragments and Spider Emblems, because of the sheer amount of emails I was getting asking for the locations. I’ve slapped the photo locations to the start of each boss fight as well. I’ve been through the guide again and I’ve made some modifications to the boss battles. Thursday, 10 May 2007 – Just went around upgrading Spidey, collecting Spider Emblems and Meteorite Fragments, beating gangs and tidying up the FAQ today. Friday, 11 May 2007 – Added the Trivia, Glitches and Quotes n’ Quips sections to the FAQ. Also inserted a few of the questions I’ve been asked over the last week and added a few more little touch ups to the guide. I also placed a link that works in the Meteorite and Emblem section. Submitted version 4 of the FAQ! Wednesday 16, May 2007 – After a nice break from Spiderman 3, I’ve finally decided to add some more stuff to it. For starters, I finally figured out what it is the 100 Meteorite Fragments (and 100%) does. The answer is very disappointing. When I say very disappointing, I mean VERY disappointing! Also added loads of new glitches and a few more questions that people sent me via e-mails. I tell you, if I never get another e-mail asking me “how do you find each individual Meteorite Fragment and Spider Emblem?”, it’ll be too soon! Finally, I added an updated map showing even more Spider Emblem and Meteorite Fragment locations. Saturday 26, May 2007 – Hehe, another long break here. I’ve just been answering emails and stuff. I must have sent out that damn map about 50 million times now. I swear, if nobody ever asks me for that map again it’ll be too soon. I also saw that 2 lame sites were hosting and selling my FAQ without my permission. The sites are Wonderdog and Cheat Code Central. I mean come on, the legal stuff is there for a reason. If you want to sell a guide then make your own. I added a ton more glitches too and I also went through the guide again and made a few little tweaks to some various parts. Anything else... oh yeah, I added another unlockable in the Unlockables section. I even bought a Black Suit Spiderman figure! Thursday 07, June 2007 – Haha! Thought I was gone didn’t ya? You... you didn’t really... right? Anyways, I’ve added a ****load of new glitches, that both I and other people have submitted to me. Once again thanks to all who have submitted glitches to me. I frequently started a fourth play through, because on my most frequent one, the damn Sweeper enemy from the H-Bombers Gang just would not show up. I was frequently stuck at 34/35 pictures. It was driving me up the wall, just like Spiderman himself. On my fourth play through though, I made sure to snap him during the Carlyle mission so HA! Hey, there’s a ton more quotes added, you can really see that the game version of Spiderman seems to be more based on his comic book and animated series’ versions rather than the movie version. I also added another section, a rather special section regarding a certain e-mail I got recently. Oh yeah, hey guess what! This Walkthrough has gained close to 200,000 views. I never expected it to rack up so many hits. I know that it will reach 200,000 very soon! My Black Suited Spidey figure has been hurting me... Monday 25, June 2007 – ****!! ****!!!!! **********!!!!!!!! Ahem, sorry I encountered this glitch in the game where the Spidey Emblems and the Meteorite Fragments don’t show up. Anyways, I added a ton more glitches that I found and loads more from you kind people that sent me them! I tell you, if that glitches section gets any bigger, then its gonna be bigger than the actual walkthrough itself... and that’s not a good thing! For the final version of this FAQ, I’ll number all the glitches and see how many we have encountered. I’m expecting the number to come to around 5,000+. Hey, we finally hit the 200,000 mark! The count at the time I write this is = 225,064. ^____^ Anything else... oh yeah, more quotes have been added to the Quotes n’ Quips section of the guide. Also, I think that Version 9 or Version 10 of this guide will be the final version. Like I said before, its been a real blast adding stuff to this walkthrough! I’ve enjoyed it a lot! Oh yeah, I also added an alternate strategy on how to defeat old Venom in the final boss battles of the game. More good news, my Black Suited Spidey figure was demanding his breakfast yesterday, when my red and blue suit Spidey figure came and beat the living daylights out of him! Hooray!! No more taking orders from an action figure... what’s that red and blue suit Spidey figure? Oh yes of course, I’ll get your tea to you shortly... <Groan> it begins again! Wednesday 04, August 2007 – Well guys and gals, this is it. It’s the final update for this guide. There’s just nothing more I can add to it except adding the last question, touching up a few little parts of the guide and numbering all the glitches that were discovered by us. (Check the number of glitches!) I also added my review of the game so check that out if you want to know how much I liked it and disliked it. Also, any spelling errors have won. I couldn’t find them, but I know that there are still some in this guide... laughing at me. So yeah, the e- mails... the only one’s I receive now are not from you, but from stupid idiot spammers who post literally some of the most annoying things ever – Friend Requests from people I don’t know, Update Your Account from banks I’m not a part of, e-mails with no text, but just attachments that I don’t want to open and all that kind of crap. I’ve really had fun with this guide and I’ve really enjoyed reading the various e-mails and glitches you kind people have sent to me. So... yeah, like I said it’s the FINAL update. I never knew it would gain so much attention, help so many people out and stuff. This is my most complete guide yet and no doubt, my future ones will become bigger and better because of the experience I gained from increasing the content of this FAQ. If you want to e-mail me expressing your sorrow over this, the final update ever, then feel free to. Don’t e-mail me with anymore glitches, because they won’t be added. Ask me about any queries you still have about the game and I’ll still give you the maps if you want them. I’ll miss you guys! See you in Spiderman 4 okay? I’m finally done! *Web swings outta here* ################# I) Legal stuff This may be not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal, private use.

Copyright: 2007 Nick Kazama. ------------------ II) Introduction Greetings true believers! Nick Kazama here bringing you my second ever walkthrough for a game (3 of them are character FAQ’s), but my first ever walkthrough for a Spiderman game. After hearing many a bad thing about SM3 for the PS2, I was a little hesitant about buying it at first, well, I’d already pre-ordered it. I started hearing the bad things about it AFTER I’d ordered the game. When I got it however, I saw that it wasn’t really that bad. At least to me it wasn’t. Sure, it was nowhere near as good as the Amazing Spiderman 2 game, but it was still pretty fun. It kept me entertained and that’s what a games all about right? Right? Anyways, I started setting up this walkthrough and guide during the first few minutes of playing Spiderman 3, I wanted to do another walkthrough for a game, instead of another character FAQ and guide. It’s been a real blast adding various things to this walkthrough. ------------------- III) Contact details If you have any questions about this FAQ, then e-mail moi! My e-mail address is – firstname.lastname@example.org Please remember to read the guide thoroughly before asking me anything though. Chances are you’ll find your answer! And please, I’m begging you, don’t ask me how to get the Meteorite Fragments and/or the Spider Emblems! Seriously, my e-mail account has been severely flooded by about 5,000,000+ e-mails asking me how to find them. Also, if you see this guide on any other websites other than GameFAQs, then please let me know and you’ll score a place in the special thanks section of this walkthrough. Many sites have already been selling my guide without my permission. Thieves. Lowlifes. Degenerates. Etc. ------------------- IV) Controls The controls in Spiderman 3 are somewhat similar to the previous two Spidey games (Spiderman 2 and Ultimate Spiderman). Here they are; =============== Basic Controls =============== Move Spiderman – Left Analogue Stick Move Camera - Right Analogue Stick Jump – (X) Button Wall Crawl – (O) Button (when near a wall) Quick Attack – () Button Strong Attack – (/\) Button Web Attack – (O) Button (when targeting an enemy) Dodge – [L2] Button Web Swing – [R2] Button Swing Boost – (X) Button Web Zip – [R1] Button Interact (when prompted) – (/\) Button Adrenaline Attack – [L1] Button (before an attack) Put On or Remove Black Suit - <- or -> directional button Photo Mode – Up Directional Button Pause Menu/Scrapbook – Start City Map – Select Center Camera Behind Spiderman – (R3) Button ===================== Photography Controls ===================== Toggle Photo Mode On/Off – Up Directional Button Aim Camera – Left Analogue Stick Zoom In/Out – Right Analogue Stick Up/Down Take a Picture – [R1] Button =============== The Black Suit =============== If you switch to Black Suit then you’ll notice some changes in Spidey. Other than the color change, Spidey will gain one or more hits to his combos, his maximum health will become bigger and he can jump higher. You see your Adrenaline Bar? When that fills up completely, you’ll notice that the edges of the screen have started turning dark. This black aura will grow and grow and grow, unless you take that suit off! If you leave it, then the symbiote will feed off of Peter and he’ll pass out. When he comes to, he’ll have the red and blue suit again. Each time you take Black Suit off, it will require some button presses. It starts out at just 2 button presses and then raises by one each time you take it off. Once you are required to tap the Triangle button quickly at the end of the button press sequence, that’s when the number of required button presses stops growing. Also, if you leave the Black Suit on too much, then the city will start to look really grim. Trees lose their leaves, the pavements and buildings get all cracked up and the pedestrians say nasty things about you, instead of nice things. ================ Advanced Combat ================ ------------------- V) Hero Upgrades As with Spiderman 2, Spiderman 3 allows you to upgrade our hero with things such as higher jumping, longer combos, more health and more. Here’s how you can upgrade him. We’ll start with the combo line. As you progress through the main story, the very first upgrades on each branch will be automatically activated for you. 3-Hit Combos---4-Hit Combos---5-Hit Combos---Knockback Power---6-Hit Combos Web Mount---Mounted Smash Power---Mounted Jab Power---Health Upgrade ---Mounted Web Cannon---Health Upgrade Lightning Strikes---Lightning Boost Web Yank---Web Rodeo---Web Hammer---Stronger Webbing---Strongest Webbing---Rodeo Duration Vault---Vault Jab---Speed Upgrade---Vault Smash---Vault Webbing--- Speed Upgrade Web Cannon Boost Double Jump---Wall Jump---Super Fly Spidey---Higher Charged Jump--- Highest Charged Jump---The Spinneret---Freefall Headspin---Speed Upgrade Uppercut---Dive Bomb---Health Upgrade---Earth breaker---Uppercut Power---Health Upgrade--- Spider Smackdown---Smackdown Boost Note - Each time you purchase an upgrade for Spidey, Bruce Campbell may give you a humorous line! ------------------- VI) Walkthrough Okay then my fellow Spidey fan, let’s get this show underway shall we? Unlike previous Spidey games, Spiderman 3 starts you off in a building. A guard comes to greet you, so hit him with either the Square button, or the Triangle button. A small cutscene shows more guards entering the room you’re in. Hello, is that Bruce Campbell’s voice? It sure is! As he suggests, soften the bad guys up with some soft attacks and then nail them with stronger moves. The most effective way to get them out of your way is to do the combo shown at the top of the screen; Square, Square, Triangle. After beating them, head through that door and you’ll see a big explosion just outside the window. Head to the right and another explosion will blow a hole in the wall. Enter through the hol... erm, passage! You’ll be in an office. A cutscene will show yet another small explosion blow another chunk out of another wall. However, there is a fire standing in between you and the passageway. The game prompts you to jump over it. You can charge your jump by holding down the X button and then releasing it. However, you don’t even need to jump over it. Move slightly to the right and you’ll see that you can just run around the flame. In the next room, there is a huge gaping chunk of the floor missing and some more flames poking out of there. What would Spiderman be without his Spider powers? I’ll tell you, he’d be... man. Is that what you came to play – Man 3? Nope! Go up to the wall and press the Circle button to stick to it. Of course if you wanted to, you could just charge your jump and then press the Circle button to stick to the ceiling, then just crawl across the fire. Head through the door at the end. In this room, there are 4 bad guys. Use that 3 hit combo like the last time. You also get an option here to use the Web Splat move. Spidey has lost the ability to web up an enemy in this game, so instead he has the Web Splat. This move temporarily blinds an enemy. After subduing them, another cutscene shows yet another explosion that blows a section out of the ceiling this time. More bad guys drop down to come and get you. You also get a prompt to use Spidey’s dodge move. When his Spidey Sense goes off (little flashing light above his head), press the L2 button and Spiderman will roll out of harms way. I know, I miss the sprint function too. After these bad guys have been dealt with, run into the little yellow circle on the ground and then charge your jump. Release it to proceed to the next floor. In this room, there are 4 people that need saving. To pick up a civilian, walk up to them and then press the Triangle button to have Spidey pick them up. These two people are stuck behind some debris and some fire. Simply jump over the debris to get to them. After picking one of them up, get them to the door (just follow the green exclamation mark on the screen). When you reach the green circle on the floor, press the Triangle button again to drop them off. After getting the second civilian to safety, a cutscene shows you some more bad guys – The H Bombers. You’ll also be shown that you can regenerate some of Spidey’s health. Remember that you can only regenerate up to the white part of the health bar (if you’ve taken damage you’ll notice a white bit on the health bar). Beat these two bad guys and then head through the door. More bad guys and a health restore (the little red spider emblem). After taking out these bad guys, run over to the tied up civilian, move Spidey into the yellow circle and press the Triangle button. This will begin a sequence where you must repeatedly tap the Triangle button. Keep at it and Spiderman will break the chains holding the civilian. After freeing him, he’ll open a door for you and then run off. Head through the door and follow the green exclamation mark. Notice how the number gets smaller as you get nearer? Keep going and you’ll see a health restore. Move into the next room. Oh boy, lots more baddies in here, but nothing you can’t handle right? Right?? Good. Around this point you’ll get another little notice about the Adrenaline Attacks. When that white bar underneath you health bar in full, you can use an Adrenaline Attack. Press the L1 button and the Circle button at the same time. You can refill the Adrenaline Bar by dealing damage to enemies. Okay, beaten up all the enemies? Great okay, move Spidey into that yellow circle near the tied up civilian and press the Triangle button. Remember the last tied up man where you had to rapidly press the Triangle button to free him? Do that again now and we’re done. Watch the opening credits. Our hero gives us the low down about what’s been happening. New gangs have appeared and are dividing up the city, Harry won’t talk to Peter, New York loves Spidey and a new guy at the Daily Bugle, Eddie Brock is annoying Peter. After the opening credits, you have the option to change the difficulty setting. There are 3 difficulty levels – Sidekick (the easy one), Hero (harder than Sidekick) and Super Hero (the hardest difficulty). Okay, head into the green circle on the ground and tap the Triangle button to begin some training. See that blue ring in front of you? Swing to that. Press the R2 button to swing. Swing through 4 blue rings to get another little notice. You can change Spidey’s direction while he’s swinging by moving the Left Analogue Stick in the direction you want to go. Swing through 4 more blue rings to pass this little test. Once Spidey is on the ground, head into the little green circle and tap Triangle! Now you’ll learn about charged swinging. To charge swing, press the X button whilst swinging and Spidey will move faster on his web line. Charge swing through 3 blue rings to complete this little training exercise. After completing it, you’ll get some experience. When you have enough experience, you’ll gain a level. These levels can then be spent on the Hero Upgrade chart located in the scrapbook (press Start to open the scrapbook). You can earn experience points by completing mission s and performing combat combos. You can also save your game whenever you want (most of the time). To save your overall progress, press the Start button and select Save/Load. Access the Scrapbook to proceed. Save your game. You should be 10% done. Exit the Scrapbook and then you need to press the Select button to bring up the map. See those colored icons that are scattered across the map? Those are the various gangs of Manhattan. Each time you take down a part of a gang, then they will lose some of their %. Render their % to zero to eradicate them from the map. If you manage to successfully beat all the icons of one gang and then render their percent to zero, then you’ll gain a ton of experience. Okay, now you’re free to do whatever you want. I recommend that you swing around the city for a bit to get used to the controls. Don’t worry about the green exclamation mark, you can go to that whenever you wish. Done? Okay, head in the direction the green exclamation mark is pointing you to and you’ll see a man with a long thin pillar of purple light above his head. This light is so that you know which person to talk to. Press the Triangle button to talk to him and start a crime patrol. Follow the white icon to your next destination. There is a little timer on the top right hand corner of the screen, but it is more than enough time for you to get to the baddies. The timer will disappear when you reach them. There should be 4 of bad guys here. Use combos to dispose of them quickly and then pick up the item they leave behind. A police badge icon will appear and will lead you to, who else? A policeman! Get close to him and press the Triangle button to give him the item you just picked up. The cop will then ask you to find some evidence and you’ll see 3 marker appear on the screen. Head to any one of them. If you head to the truck, then press the Triangle button repeatedly to open it. No evidence. Another marker leads you to some bad guy, beat them up. No evidence. Head to the one that’s located on top of a building and you’ll find a wooden box. Punch it a few times to destroy it. Ding ding ding, evidence! Pick it up (press the Triangle button when near it) and head back to the cop. Give the evidence to them. But wait, were not done yet! Turns out that the H Bombers stole some power converters. Swing over to where the green exclamation mark is pointing you to. You’ll see a van. Get behind it and press the Triangle button to initiate another Triangle mashing sequence. After Spidey has pulled the doors off the van, he’ll pick up the power converters. With these in your possession, head on over to the guy across the road and hand them to him. Mission Complete! For completing this mission, you’ll unlock the Acrobatics Upgrades. You’ll be brought to the upgrade chart. Feel free to spend your Hero Points on the 4 Hit Combos upgrade and the Wall Jump upgrade. Exit this screen. Another icon will appear, so follow it! It will lead you to the Daily Bugle. Head into that green circle on top of the building and press Triangle. After the cutscene, you’ll need to head to the printing plant pronto! This is timed. To make this easier, you’ll automatically unlock the Web Zip move as you swing along the buildings. This is a very handy move and you can do it simply by pressing the R1 button. This icon will lead you to a building on the edge of town, so climb up it. A cutscene will show a baddie come out of the door and ambush you. You’ll now learn about the Web Yank move. You can Web Yank by pressing and holding the Circle button. This move can disarm enemies (stuff like pulling their shields and weapons away from them). After defeating this enemy, several more will burst out of the building. Beat them all and then head on over to the bomb. After defeating them, go near the bomb and press Triangle, this will begin another Triangle button press sequence. Spidey with start spinning the bomb around with his web line. You need to press the Triangle button when the little moving red line reaches the end part of the meter. Here’s a little diagram to help you out; ____________________________ __________ || | | | Press | || || | | | (/\) | || || |____________________________| |___Here___| || You need to do this 3 times. After successfully completing this, Spidey will hurl the bomb into the water, where it goes off without harming anyone. Not done yet though. Another baddie exits through the door and tells Spidey that their boss has planted bombs all down the side of the building their on as a backup plan. Who plants bombs down the sides of a building as a back up plan?? Anyway, start crawling down the building and press Triangle when you’re near them to deactivate them, yes this is timed. You see those green circles that are guiding you to the bombs? Well, once they deplete, then the bombs will go off. We don’t want that happening. Remember to Web Zip if you’re running out of time. There are 7 bombs in total. Spidey decides to check with the police, just in case there are any other signs of this mad bomber. The cops tell him that there have been some more bombs set up at the bugle’s regional office. Pick up that health refill if you need it, then start swinging over to where the icon is pointing you to. On top of this building, beat the thugs (Square, Square, Triangle works best here) and then press Triangle near the bomb to twirl it around and throw it into the river. Its exactly the same thing as before, press the Triangle button when the red line gets to the end of the meter. After giving this bomb a bath, collect the health refill and then pick up the “Suspicious looking Package” next to it. Looks like some sort of tracking device... and its showing bombs headed in your direction! The map will automatically pop up, showing you the locations of these bombs. Exit the map screen and then descend the building and protect it! It turns out that more thugs are bringing the bombs to the building. Take care of them, there are 4 enemies here. A good way to deal heavy damage to them is to jump into the air and then press the Square button multiple times. Spidey will launch a web line onto them and then pull himself in and go straight into a combo. After that’s taken care of, the building will be saved. Mission complete! You’ll earn some experience and random crimes will now start happening around the city. Web Yanks Upgrades will also be unlocked for you. I wonder if things have settled down at the Daily Bugle yet. It wouldn’t hurt to see id J. Jonah Jameson has another job for Peter. Follow the icon which depicts a lizard on it. Hmmm, a lizard... Of course, you don’t need to follow the icon right away – swing around the city for a little bit until you hear a voice saying something. This voice will also be accompanied by text at the bottom of the screen, this is a random crime happening in the city. Complete a few of these and rack up them Hero Points. Once at the Bugle, head to the top and a cutscene will start. Giant Lizards? After the cutscene, you’ll be at Central Park. Follow that green exclamation mark. As you begin to near the point you’re headed to, you’ll hear phrases such as “Don’t go in the park! Giant lizards!!” spoken by pedestrians. Once you’ve reached the point, Spidey will spot what is indeed a giant lizard! It’s pigging out at an ice cream stand. Best to not startle our scaly friend here, we need a few pictures of these things. Remember how to open up the photo mode? Press the Up button. The photo controls are listed on the photo mode; [R1] = Take a picture (R3) = Zoom In and Zoom Out Up = Exit Photo Mode See that bar on the top left part of the screen (when not in Photo Mode)? That shows how much distance is between you and the lizards. Get too close and they’ll be startled and shall run away. Start walking towards it and Spidey will inform you of when you get at just the distance. Go into Photo Mode. Zoom in on this lizard and then when you see the red circle go green, take your photo. After you take this picture, the large reptile will notice you and run off, so its time to find another one. Follow the marker and you’ll see one across the lake. When the bar appears on the screen, move forward a little bit and then repeat what you did the last time. This lizard will escape by jumping into the lake. Now, you’ll need to rescue a pedestrian from one of these lizards. Get to them before their health drops to zero. While making your way to this lizard, you’ll get a hint that tells you to Vault That Lizard! To Vault, dodge while moving towards an enemy. This will allow you to jump over enemies and attack them from behind. Try Vaulting enemies who dodge or block your normal attacks. After saving this pedestrian, a cutscene will show. More lizards have turned up and are now trying to carry off innocent people. Head to the marker and defeat the lizard that’s carrying the girl. A good way to catch up to him is to shoot some impact webbing (web ball) at him. This will blind him for a few seconds, allowing you to deal some damage. Done that? Great, okay pick up the pedestrian and take her to either of the 2 ambulances on the sides of the park. Your jobs not done yet though! Another Lizard is making off with another hostage! Go and get him, then bring the civilian to one of the ambulances. Oh, there’s always one more isn’t there?? Track the next lizard down and bring the pedestrian to an ambulance and we’re done! Mission complete! You’ll gain some experience and the Vault Upgrades will be unlocked for you. Photo Mode will also be unlocked. If you complete the check list in the Scrapbook, then you’ll get an experience bonus. After the cutscene, Peter remembers that he told Mary Jane he’s meet her at Central Park. Good thing we rid it of reptiles huh? Do some more random crimes if you want to gain some more experience. MJ can wait. When you think you’re ready, head to the star icon to meet up with Parker’s lady friend. Hello, what’s that sticking to Peter’s trainer...? After the cutscene, pick up MJ and take her home. Mary Jane will constantly be yelling stuff to you in a friendly way (“This is worse than a roller coaster!”, etc). When you reach the green circle on the floor, put her down and after the cutscene you’ll be thrust into your first boss fight of the game; Boss – Harry Osborne/New Goblin ##################################### This entire boss battle is nothing more than timed button presses. Peter will spend this entire fight dangling from the back of Harry’s glider. For the first part of this battle, press the [L2] and the [R2] button to steer the glider away from oncoming traffic. Eventually, you’ll get a message that tells you to look for opportunities to swing your way up onto the glider to stop Harry. To do this you need to press these buttons when prompted ; Triangle, X, triangle, X, Triangle. Then press the corresponding buttons when Peter jumps onto the glider. After doing this, a cutscene will show and Peter will once again be hanging onto the glider. When there’s no traffic in the way, press Triangle, X, Triangle, X, Triangle again. You can press these buttons as fast as you want. When Peter jumps onto the glider a second time press the 4 corresponding buttons. Harry will stab his glider by accident and Peter will once again be hanging on for dear life (probably not dear life as he’s Spidey ya know?). Once again, hop onto the glider by pressing Triangle, X, Triangle, X, Triangle. When Parker’s on top of the glider with Harry, press the corresponding buttons and you’re done! ##################################################################### Watch the cutscene. Hello Black suit! But where did it come from? Who cares, it feels and looks great! Help out the cops by beating on the thugs. Eventually, you’ll notice that a black aura has started to appear at the edges of the screen. This is the black suit enhancing your attacks. But be warned. If you wait for too long until removing the suit then it will make Spidey pass out. Pretty soon you’ll be prompted to take the black suit off. Press the right directional button to remove it. You’ll now need to press 2 corresponding buttons on the screen. Each time you wear the Black Suit and then try to take it off, it will take more and more button presses. After taking it off, a little timer will appear just above your health bar. You won’t be able to don the suit until that time expires. After beating up the thugs you’ll get a Mission Complete! The new Trick Race Challenges will now be unlocked. As will Black Suit! There will now be 2 icons on the screen. It’s your choice on where to go next. This guide however will be following the Lizard part of the story right now. Don’t worry, you will be tackling the next part of the story after the Lizard scenario. Follow the icon that depicts the lizard head. The icon will take you to the top of a building. Once on top of the building, press the Triangle button for another cutscene. Woah, hello! It’s the Lizard! This cutscene will begin a chase sequence. Follow the Lizard around the various buildings (if you lose him then just look out for a yellow exclamation mark on the screen and head in its direction). Eventually, our scaly friend will trap a civilian underneath a car and will set fire to another car. Step into the yellow circle near the vehicle with the trapped person underneath it and press the Triangle button. Now you must tap the Triangle button again rapidly to have Spidey lift the car off of the pedestrian. After you’ve done this, head on over to the other car that’s been set on fire. See that fire hydrant on the pavement? Punch it and then step into the yellow circle and press the Triangle button a few times. This will make Spidey pull the car over to the water and it will extinguish the flames. Resume chasing the Lizard. The rampaging reptile will then knock 3 people off of a building, so guess what. That’s right its up to YOU to save them! Remember, there are no X-Men, Fantastic Four, or any other superheroes in this game to do that. Head on over to the building and start wall crawling once you reach the wall that they are hanging from. Pick up each one with the Triangle button and then drop to the ground. Drop them off and then repeat this with the other two people. Done? Great, okay resume your chase. A cutscene will show the Lizard summoning more lizard men to come and get you. You know what to do! You’ll also get a hint that tells you about upper cutting enemies here. Use upper cuts to knock enemies away from you. Upper cuts are especially effective after you Web Splat or Vault an enemy. When enemies are in the air, you can use web moves on them to get extra hits. Defeat these lizard men and move forward a little to start another small cutscene. The cops have their hands full trying to fend off some more lizard men. Go help them out. After killing these lizard men, a cop will lead you to some more of them. Beat them and you’ll notice that these lizards are coming from the sewers. To web up the sewer entrances, simply get near them and press the Circle button. You’ll know if you’ve successfully webbed up a sewer entrance when a big web circle appears over them. You’ll need to web up 2 sewer entrances. After you’ve done this and beaten all the lizards in the area, follows the icons again to even more lizard men! Beat them all. Hey, if you have purchased (or have enough Hero Points to purchase) the 5 Hit Combos, then these lizard men should go down in just 5 hits each. Make sure to web up the next two sewer entrances in this area. Heads up! Lizard’s gone into an alley! Follow him and he’ll unleash some... kitten men to come and fight you. Okay, I lied, its more lizard men. I’m just getting tired of writing lizard men you see. Beat these lizards and it’s off into the sewers. Mission complete! Your Uppercut upgrades will be unlocked. Listen to what Spidey says here; he makes references to the Green Goblin and Doc Ock from the previous two Spiderman the movie games! You’ll also be able to go to the other icon now, but this guide will be continuing with the Lizard plot now. Head down into the sewers. Oh boy! The sewers! We haven’t been able to head into the sewers since the first Spiderman game for the Play Station 1! Ahem, anyway head through that entrance. In this room, if you just keep going forward and you’ll notice some pods... these are what the lizard men burst out of. Hmmm, pods that hatch living things. Invasion of the body snatchers eat your heart out. To the left is a railing and beyond this railing is another area. Hop over the railing and move forward a little. Hey look! Some lizard men just hatched. Beat the **** out of them and continue on. That sewage can’t drown Spidey or anything, it’ll just make his outfit smelly. If you want this to look somewhat cool, then web swing over the river of sewage here. Proceed through the tunnel. You’ll be constantly attacked by enemies as you make your way through this large tunnel. At the end, you’ll notice the Lizard running through a door, so follow him. In this area, after you’ve moved forward a little more, you’ll be ambushed by, is it? It is! MORE ****ING LIZARD MEN! After fighting them for a while, you’ll get another hint about using the Web Mount move. Use the Web Mount to attack large enemies you can’t yank. Once you’re mounted, punch away. Don’t stay on to long though! You’ll also be introduced to a new type of lizard man here, these ones are much bigger than the others and are stronger too. After you’ve disposed of them, head on into the next area. Jump over the platform into the space below and Spidey will comment that its too quiet all of a sudden... Speak of the devil. You should have predicted what type of enemies will attack you down here, so just pound away at them. There are quite a few to go through here. After killing them all, head through the newly opened door. Move forward and you’ll come to the entrance of a big tunnel. Jump through either the left circle or the right one and proceed. As you head down this tunnel, enemies will now start popping up out of the sewage in an attempt to ambush you. Beat them all for the experience and keep going until you see that the passage is blocked by a lot of steam. Don’t touch the steam or you’ll get hurt. Head on over to that console on the left of the screen and press Triangle. Now press Triangle again rapidly to have Spidey turn the wheel and the steam will be no more! Proceed. Oh look, more steam! Turn the wheel just like you did with the previous one. Keep going and you’ll come across a third wall of steam that’s blocking your path. Turn the wheel again. Now head to the end of this large tunnel. At the end, charge your jump to reach the platform up above and then enter the door there. Keep moving forward and you’ll see a door to Spidey’s left. He’ll automatically enter it. In this next area, jump over to the green exclamation mark and press the Triangle button to turn the valve. You now need to seal the leaks o the pipes. Head on over to the 5 yellow exclamation mark points and seal up the pipes with your webbing by pressing the Circle button. Webbing – 1, Lizard Goo – 0! This will remove the goo from the door in this area. Head through it. Keep moving forward. Mission Complete! The Web Mount Upgrades will now be unlocked for you. Okay, in this area, follow the green exclamation mark and drop down. You’ll now have the option to either take a break from this mission and swing around the city, or continue the mission. Continuing on, move forward through the door and in this next area, you’ll need to defeat a few more enemies. Defeat them, then head through the newly opened door. In this area, beat some more enemies and then head into the next area. There are humans in this area, that need rescuing. There are 4 humans that need your help. Scoop ‘em up and then bring them to that door on the right hand side of the screen. Drop them off at the door and then defeat the lizards. They’ll appear on a raised platform. But wait, there are gang members fighting with our scaly friends? They all need rubbing out, so kill ‘em all. Head down this tunnel and go through the door. In this room, there are dead lizard men and gang members for you to fight. After disposing of them, head on up that door on the raised platform and keep going, to initiate a cutscene. After the cutscene, Spidey will be flung into a trap! This is not a drill, repeat, this is NOT a drill!! A huge metal drill is bearing down upon you, so technically it IS a drill but hey you get the idea! Now swing! Swing like you’ve never swung before! Be sure to avoid the tanker which is giving off flames and keep swinging until you see long thin sideways pillars of flame. Spidey will most likely swing around these naturally because of the swinging physics in this game. They’re easy enough to avoid though. After you clear this set of flames, some more await you, so swing past them. After clearing this set, a final third set of flames appear. Swing past this set and keep going till you reach the end of the cavern and you’re home free! In this next area, Spidey comments on the slime on the walls. He says he won’t be able to climb them, nor does he even want to try climbing on them. Head around the corner and go into the green room to start a boss fight; Boss – Dr Curtis Connors/The Lizard################################## Photo - Lure him over to one side of the area and then immediately afterwards, swing over to the other side. This should give you plenty of time to position the camera correctly and take his picture. He’s not so tough. He’s not really that hard at all, so save Black suit for the next boss battle. The Lizard is always accompanied by his lizard men followers, so they might make things a little difficult for you. If you’ve purchased that 5 Hit Combo, then his health bar will deplete a lot faster! The Lizard rarely seems to attack you and even if he does get a hit off on you, he doesn’t do much damage. By the time you’ve finished one combo, the Lizard will be stunned, so use another combo on him. Jump out of the way of his lizard followers and you’ll be fine! ##################################################################### Leaping Lizards! After you’ve defeated him, the Lizard jumps away to a door that’s very high up. Spidey follows and this will begin a timed button press sequence. Press the corresponding buttons that appear on the screen. The order is probably random with each play, as with many other boss fights, etc. Mission Complete! After completing this mission, you’ll be back at street level. You must now tackle the Dragon Tail gang in order to get a lead on Doctor Connors and Kraven the Hunter. In order to do this, simply bring up your map. You see those question marks? Head to each one of them and complete the selected objectives. Its not hard at all. There should be 9 question mark icons on the map. Head to each one and complete all of them. After you’ve done this, you’ll get the heads up to swing to another green exclamation mark. It’s coming from an alley way. Oh no... oh no... MORE lizard men want to say hello. Drop down into the alley way and beat them up. You’ll also notice that a few Dragon Tail gang members are duking it out with them. Beat up whoever you want first, or just jump around wildly, knocking everyone around. Mission Complete! Okay, you’ll now be standing on, or near a green area. Press Triangle and you’ll be thrust into a boss fight; Boss – Sergei Kravenoff/Kraven the Hunter ########################### Photo - After he gets dizzy from dashing around the area (after he’s consumed his potion) that’s the best time. Its time to make the hunter become the hunted! Kraven will almost always be accompanied by at least 2 Dragon Tail gang members. Trust me, the easiest way to get past this first part of the boss battle is to just switch to Black suit and pound away. Kraven won’t even get a chance to attack you and you’ll rack up a decent combo number! After you’ve whittled his health down by halfway, Kraven will take a swig at his special potion. This will make him gain a yellow aura. He’ll also be accompanied by many more gang members this time. Take them out if you want for experience while Kraven dashes around the area like a mad man. Pretty soon, the hunter will get tired and stop. Now is the time to hit him! After you’ve dealt enough damage to him, he’ll drink some more of his potion and will start dashing around the area again. Just kill some more gang members until he tires himself out again and then beat him to a pulp. ##################################################################### Mission Complete! You’ll now be inside another area. Run forward and pick up the health restore if you need it. After going through this small corridor, you’ll be in a bigger room. Follow the bleeps, or the exclamation mark, and run into that glowing yellow circle on the floor. You’ll now be able to once again take a break from this mission and swing around in the city or something, or you can continue the mission. Chose to continue and Spidey will meet up with Doctor Connors again... Wait a minute... oh god... Boss – Mega Lizard ################################################## Photo - If you can, get behind one of the generators and Mega Lizard will almost always be on the other side. Edge to the side of the generator so that he still can’t get to you and take his photo. Woah! Huuuuuuuge Lizard Alert! Dr Connors took some more of his formula and has now transformed into a massive lizard monster. You cannot hurt him at all in this fight, at least not with your punches that is. Here’s what you need to do; you see those 4 generators in the area? Well, you’ve got to lure the lizard beast into one of those so he shocks himself. Get near one of the generators and then jump out of the way, just as he reaches for you. Lizard will shock himself. Be careful not to get too close to the turbines yourself, or you’ll lose some health. Oh yeah, and watch out for his acid spit! You need Monster Connors to shock himself 2 times. After the second generator, he’ll learn his lesson. Now, he won’t shock himself without some serious encouragement. Get close to him and the second you see the Triangle button icon appear on the screen, press it! Soon after, the Square button icon will appear, so press the Square button, now all that remains is the press the Circle button, when the Circle button icon appears on the screen. This order may be random. Spidey will now be riding Mega Lizard! Yeehaw! Git along little doggy, um cowboy, er Spider... just forget it. To have Spidey stay on the Lizard, keep your thumb on the Left Analogue Stick and keep the little pointer in the middle of the curved line, just like in the Tony Hawk games! When the Mega Lizard is near enough to a generator, the icon for the Circle button will flash on the screen, so press it! Lizard will go head first into a generator! Spidey will jump off just before the Monster Lizard shocks himself a third time. Wait a second, oh crap! The fourth generator has turned off! You need to get it running again. See those 2 switches on either side of the room? You’ve got to switch both of them on. Press Triangle near them and then press it again repeatedly as fast as you can, because old Godzilla here ain’t gonna stop chasing you. After you’ve switched the both of them on, get near the monster again and press the correct buttons in order when prompted. Now, keep the little pointer in the middle of the curved bar as long as you can, cause the Lizard may run for longer this time. After a while you’ll see the Circle button icon on the right hand side of the screen, so press it. Shocking! Now all that remains is a well placed finishing move. Stand in front of the Monster Lizard and press the Triangle button. Now press it again multiple times and you’re finally done! ##################################################################### Mission Complete! Now, head toward the lizard icon and press Triangle. The Lizard himself may have been taken care of, but there are still plenty more lizard men lurking around in the city. We’d better mop ‘em up. There are 5 groups of lizards and there should only be 4 lizards in each group. Mission Complete! That’s it, that’s the end of the lizard threat! Now head to the star icon. This is just a little FMV cutscene with Doc Connors and Spidey talking about the symbiote. Okay then, New York is finally lizard free and there are now 2 new icons for you to go to. Firstly, head for the icon that has a man with all of his head showing A.K.A. the one that doesn’t lead you to the Daily Bugle. This mission is quite humorous because J. Johna Jameson will have to join you! After the cutscene, follow that helicopter, once you get close enough the enemies will drop off Jameson. Now Spidey will be carrying Jameson whilst chasing the helicopter. After a few moments of chasing, these baddies will set up a bomb on a building. Set Jameson down, beat up the enemies and then press Triangle near the bomb to begin another swinging session. Remember to press the Triangle button when the little marker reaches the end part of the line. After this, the helicopter takes off again. Pick up Jameson and follow it! Pretty soon, these baddies will start setting up another bomb. Beat up the bad guys, then do the whole swinging mini game again. After you’ve disposed of this bomb, pick up Jameson once again and continue chasing down that helicopter until it stops and the top of a building. Set Jameson down and beat up the bad guys. Its time to fight; Boss – Carlyle ###################################################### Photo - When he’s been forced out of the sky, use your Square, Square, Triangle combo on him and when he’s lying on the floor, that’s when you shoot... your camera that is! Not really a hard boss at all here, just an annoying one. Okay firstly a word of warning – DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT LEAVING THE BUILDING YOU ARE ON!! Seriously, there is a weird glitch that happens if you jump off the building. Carlyle will just float above you and you won’t be able to continue with your game. Okay, Carlyle will spend his time hovering around you and shooting missiles at you. When he does, you’ll occasionally get the Circle icon on the right hand side of your screen. When you see this, press the Circle button and Spidey will use his webbing to hurl the missile back to Carlyle. You need to do this a few times. If you want, you can beat up his endless swarm of henchmen. There is no end to them. Anyways, after you’ve flung enough of Carlyle’s missiles back to him, he will lower to your level and start trying to attack you manually (A.K.A. He will now fight like a man). Just batter him with your normal combos, or if you really want to cause some damage, then hit him with some heavy attacks. After he’s taken enough damage, he’ll start hovering around the area again. Do exactly what you did before, fling his missiles back at him and eventually, he’ll lower himself to your level again. After taking a bit more damage, he’ll say that its time to finish this, which it is! This will begin a button press sequence. Press the following button combination in order and you’re done; , O, X ##################################################################### Mission Complete! Okay, up for a little vampire hunting? Then follow the icon. It will lead you to the Daily Bugle. After the cutscene head to where the marker is pointing you to. This destination is very far. You’ll find that it leads you to a pavement. Press the Triangle button to begin the mission. You’ll now have a police badge icon directing you to a police car. Wait for it to stop at some traffic lights or a zebra crossing before you hop onto it. Eventually, you’ll here the radio talking about a vampire. Hop off the car and follow the green exclamation mark. This is timed. After you make it you’ll see a cutscene featuring Spidey meeting Morbius, the living vampire. Mission Complete! Afterwards, you’ll be on top of the Daily Bugle so swing to the icon which is again quite far away. Once you reach the icon. Press Triangle to begin the next mission. Notice how moody Spidey got lately? Anyways, it’s that time again! Boss battle time! Boss – Michael Morbius ############################################## Photo - After he’s been snagged in the web net. You need to stall him in this first part. Stand in the yellow circles on the ground and press Triangle to web them up. Morbius needs to be trapped in one of these webs 3 times. After the third time, the sun will start to rise and you’ll now be able to hurt him. Unload some of your combos on him and watch out for his swooping attack which he seems to love doing. If he’s too far away from you, he’ll most likely perform a lunging attack to get to you. After you’ve brought his health bar down enough, he’ll try to fly straight at you. Press the X button and the O button when prompted to have Spidey bring him back down to your level. Now you can start pounding on him again. After a few more hits have been dealt to him, Michael will try his attack again to which you must press X and O again. A few more hits on him will defeat him. ##################################################################### Mission Complete! There will now be 2 icons. A star one and a Morbius one. Head the Morbius icon first. Its time to meet Mrs Morbius. Within seconds of meeting her, she sets her brainwashed “children” on you. Time to lay down the hurt! Beat up all the thugs you see here. After this is done, you’ll need to swing over to the green exclamation mark. Now she’s started brainwashing civilians. She’s even making them walk into a cloud of toxic gas spilled by an overturned truck. Bad mother, BAD! Use the Circle button to web up some of the punctures in the truck and then escort the 2 women here to the nearby ambulance. After fighting with the thugs in this area, the truck will explode. Defeat the other thugs (they have shields now press the Circle button to yank them away). After this, its time to find Shriek again. Follow the green exclamation mark up the building where you’ll encounter; Boss - Francis/Shriek ############################################### This entire fight takes place on a tall, narrow building. Shriek has placed a big pillar in the middle of this skyscraper and THAT’S what we’re gonna use to defeat her. Start by avoiding her mental blasts. Jump over them. Stand in front of one of the four satellites and jump out of the way at just the right moment to make a mental blast hit the dish. Now, run into one of those 4 yellow circles on the ground and press the Triangle button. After pressing Triangle, you’ll need to rapidly press the [L1] button and the [R1] button several times each to destroy a meteor on her obelisk. You’ll need to repeat this action 5 times. On the last time, Spidey will probably shout “Yeah! No one can stop me now!” ##################################################################### Mission Complete! Okay, after the boss “fight”, head back to Dr. Connor’s laboratory, remember to follow the Morbius icon. Enter the lab. We must now investigate where Shriek has gone. Press the Select button to bring up the map. See those Question Mark icons? Head to each one of those and complete all the objectives. Not really hard at all, just a little time consuming. After you’ve done all that, you’ll be told to follow the trail of shards. Just keep following the green exclamation marks and pressing the Triangle button to pick up the shards. You’ll know you’ve reached the end of the shard collection objective when you see 3 of them all next to each other. Pick them all up. In case you are wondering, no these Meteorite Fragments will not add up to your overall tally of collected Meteorite Fragments in the Game Progress menu. It would really be nice if they did, but they don’t, sadly enough. They should’ve included something like this when you search for the actual Meteorite Fragments and later the Spider Emblems. Seriously it would have saved everyone a whole lot of bother! Mission Complete! Follow the Morbius marker and enter Doc Connors’ lab. The screen will fade to black and then Morbius will be with you. Before you pick him up, back off a little and take his photograph. If you want an ever so slight challenge, then don’t take his picture right now. Regardless of what you choose to do, pick him up and swing to Shriek’s hideout. Do it quickly though, because there is a timer and the hideout is all the way over at the other island! Just walk into the yellow circle to begin another boss battle; Boss – Morbius and Shriek ########################################### Photo - Pull the planks off of a window, lure Michael into the light and then move away slightly. While he is stunned and Shriek is repairing the window, NOW is the time to take those pictures! (Note that you may have to do this method twice). Yep! You have to fight 2 bosses at once. Sounds hard... well it probably is to some people, but if you’ve upgraded Spidey’s combos then this fight will be cakewalk. Okay, Shriek is making Morbius fight you against his will. Aside from garlic and crucifixes, what else do vampires hate? That’s right, sunlight! See those boarded up windows? You have to stand on the yellow circles and then press the Triangle button to Web Yank them off the wall. Be careful that Morbius doesn’t attack you while you’re pulling the boards off of the windows. Get Michael into the light and then use your strongest combos on him, preferably ending with the Triangle button strong attack. His life goes down much, much quicker than the last time you fought him. After a while, Shriek will place the boards back onto the window so you’ll have to yank them off again. After you’ve depleted his life bar, Shriek will revive him with her powers. Notice how every time she revives Michael, HER health bar depletes? Keep following this strategy and you’ll be done in no time. ##################################################################### After the battle, Shriek flies off and Morbius is unconscious. Follow her through the newly opened door and you’ll be in a small hallway. You’ll see... Mary Jane?? What’s she doing here? The hallway turns bright white. Keep on running forward for another boss battle; Boss – Shriek ####################################################### Morbius won’t be joining her in this boss battle, but she has 4 henchmen with her. Spidey figures out that Shriek’s power comes from the meteorite, so maybe his black suit does too. Unfortunately, Shriek shrieked and your black suit was rendered immobile just before this boss battle. To make matters worse, Shriek has transformed herself and her 3 followers to look like Peter’s closest friends – Mary Jane, Curtis Connors, J. Jonah Jameson and Harry Osborne. While in this form, they will all be defeatable with just one punch, however they’ll respawn immediately after. After punching any one of them, Spidey’s Adrenaline Bar will fill up ever so slightly, but Black Suit makes the meter go to zero so there’s no point really. Just punch the one you hate the most (if you hate any of them), for fun. You need to wait for the black suit timer to deplete and then switch to Black Suit to see the illusions for what they really are. Black Suit is of course more powerful than regular Spiderman, so the minions and Shriek shouldn’t pose you too much of a problem. After she’s taken enough damage, Shriek will shriek again and your Black Suit will be taken off you. You now need to wait for the timer to deplete again. Keep on dodging the illusions and then switch back to Black Suit when the time is right. Pound on Shriek a little more and you’re done! By the way, you don’t even have to dodge the illusions of Peter’s friends, just climb up a wall and wait until the black suit’s timer expires. ##################################################################### Mission Complete! Okay, head to that star icon. I know, I know, it’s really far away! The star icon will bring you to the Daily Bugle. After the cutscene, head to all 4 green exclamation marks and press the Triangle button at each one. Spidey will place a camera at each spot. After the fourth one has been placed, switch to Black Suit. Now follow the person marker and then pick up the guy you come across. Swing through the first 3 blue rings and you’ll see all the photos that are being taken of you and your new friend. Ignore his whimpering and for the last blue ring, you’ll need to climb to the top of a building and then drop down into the blue ring. You’ll know if you’ve done it right when small chunks of the ground fly up from where you landed. What’s this? Spidey was just reported mugging someone? He can’t be in 2 places at once now can he? Unless Ben Reilly is in Manhattan, which he’s not... Its time to track down this phoney! Follow the green exclamation mark. This is timed, but don’t worry, because you get more than enough time to reach your destination. Okay, after the small cutscene, continue to follow the green exclamation mark, this is also timed, but don’t worry as you have quite a bit of it. Make sure to take this impostor Spiderman’s picture here. You need to do this before the cutscene! It’s quite easily missable, because Eddie Brock doesn’t stand out in the crowd that much and doesn’t really pose you much of a threat at all ya know? At least until he gets a certain black ooze... Knock out this impostor with 1 punch. Mission Complete! Oh hey, Mary Jane’s favorite band is coming to town. We should head to Times Square and get some tickets! The Times Square you knew from Spiderman 2 and Ultimate Spiderman is dead. Now it just looks like any other ordinary street. I miss those gigantic neon signs and lights and everything... anyway, head for the star icon. We’re off into the subway! We’re also off to fight; Boss – Flint Marko/Sandman ########################################## Photo - During his healing sand tornado is the best time. It’s about bloody time that Sandman showed up! He’s only like, one of the main characters of the movie! For the first part of this boss battle, you will not be able to utilise the power of the Black suit, everytime you try to use it, Spidey will just say “I can beat him without the black suit!” Press the Left Directional button multiple times to have Spidey repeat himself if you want! Okay, for the first part of the boss battle, avoid Sandman’s attacks. You can’t hurt him yet. After a short while, you’ll notice the Triangle button icon appear on the screen. Press it quickly and Spidey will throw Sandy into one of the trains. Flint will fall onto the next level, so follow him and pick up that health restore along the way! On this level, stall him once again until you can press the Triangle button to send him into a train and down to the next level. One more time now and then we can start the second part of this battle! Once again, hurl him into one of the trains. After the third time, you’ll both be in another part of the subway. You still can’t hurt him though... Spidey said he’d ditch the Black Suit for a while, but one more time couldn’t hurt, right? Right...? After you get the heads up to switch, change to Black Suit! You can now hurt Marko. Pound on him and... hey, have you noticed that the screen is getting blacker a little TOO early? Don’t worry though, Spidey will control it... sort of... Black Suit’s combo’s will now be infinite, but only for this boss battle. Press the Square, or the Triangle button multiple times to have our darker hero use an infinite combo. After hurting Sandy enough, he’ll create a sort of sand tornado to try and heal himself. We don’t want this happening so jump up to that valve and press Triangle. Now press the Triangle button again several times to give the Sandman a bath! Rinse and repeat and you’ll be done! ##################################################################### Mission Complete! No time to celebrate your victory now! Peter needs to hurry to the restaurant or he’ll be late for his date with Mary Jane! At this point, Peter has grown too attached to the symbiote, so you won’t be able to change out of your black suit. You’ll constantly have a slight black aura around the edges of the screen and the city will now look really decayed. Head to the star icon. Notice how cruel Peter was being in that cutscene? Now its time to take MJ home. Like the last time you took her home (before your battle with New Goblin), Mary Jane will constantly say things to you if you swing, however her comments will not be happy ones. During your trip back to MJ’s place, you’ll need to stop some thugs. Be careful, they’ll throw small petrol bombs at you. After you defeat them, Peter will make an out of place comment about how good it felt to beat them up. Pick up Mary Jane again and head over to the yellow circle on the ground. Put her down and its time to say good bye to Black Suit... Hee hee, did you enjoy that cutscene? After it, normal Spidey decides to head back to his apartment to relax for a bit. You now no longer have Black Suit. Before heading to the star icon, you may want to do some last minute upgrading for the final boss battles, as there are 4 of them in a row. Enter Peter’s apartment. After the cut scene, head to that construction site to begin the final boss battles! Boss – Flint Marko/Sandman ########################################## Round 2 with the man of sand! That’s... Sandman... anyway, he has a constant sand tornado around him during this fight and it’ll be hurling random objects at you. You cannot hurt him yet, so don’t even think about going near his sand tornado. Just run and jump away from Flint. Every so often, his sand tornado will hurl a canister at you. Press the Circle button at just the right time and Spidey will use his webbing to throw the canister back at Marco! Now is your chance to pound on him! Use those strong attacks (Triangle button) at the end of your combos to deal more damage. You’ll notice that his health drops more rapidly than the last time you fought with him. Keep this up and he’ll eventually go down. ##################################################################### Boss – Eddie Brock/Venom ############################################ You were looking forward to this fight weren’t ya? Harry Osborne/New Goblin will be helping you in this fight. Well... not really, as all he does is fly around the battlefield until the on screen button press sequence. This battle is also timed. I know, I was thinking “WTF!!” as well. The timer gives you 5 minutes. Okay, first things first, grab that health restore if you need it, because Venom is one tough cookie. Wait for him to finish his attack and then run up to him and press the Square button multiple times to do a combo on him. One of the most effective combos to use on him is the Square, Square, Square, Triangle one. Straight after you’ve hit him, jump away to avoid his attacks! What ever you do, don’t jump up and then press Square (to make Spidey attach a web line to Venom, pulling himself in for an attack), because Brock will just hit you and stop the combo instantly. Also, be sure to not get hit by his combo – its lethal! After you’ve taken off a quarter of his health bar, Eddie will start pulling himself along the floor with his webbing. Don’t be near him when he does this, or you’ll get hurt! If you’re Adrenaline Bar is full, then use an Adrenaline Attack (L1 + O) to knock of a very good portion of his health bar! Pretty soon, his body will have tentacles flailing off of it (remember like in Ultimate Spiderman?). It is around this time that Harry will actually help you out after saying “Knock him up into the air and I’ll do the rest!”. Press the Triangle when prompted and Spidey will kick Venom into the air, where New Goblin will slash at him a few times, dealing about 1 point of damage to Brock. Yeah REAL helpful there Harry! Straight after he’s landed, run over to Eddie and punch him a few times, before jumping away and starting this whole process over again. Keep at it and eventually, he’ll go down! However, don’t think we’re done yet! ALTERNATE STRATEGY I DISCOVERED THAT WORKED...... for me anyways Just keep jumping up and pressing the Triangle button, before immediately jumping away afterwards. I was able to defeat Venom using this cheap strategy, suffering only miniscule damage ya know! I did this after playing through this glitch fest... I mean game for the fourth time. Wondering why I accidentally spouted glitch fest? Well, check the Glitches section... ##################################################################### Boss – Mega Sandman ################################################# My, what big... everything you have grandma! Easy, easy, EASY!! Wanna know what this boss fight is? IT’S EASY!! Don’t let his big size intimidate you. Remember what they say ; “The bigger they are, the harder they fall!”. Giant Sandman never moves from that spot. He’ll try and attack you with slamming attacks and such, but they’re easy enough to avoid. When he shoves his arm into the ground, jump away to avoid his crushing hand that will pop up beneath you. See those yellow circles on the ground? Well, when they appear run into them and press the Triangle button. Goblin will drop off an object. Spidey will then start twirling it around. Look familiar? It should do, because this is played out in exactly like when you threw a bomb away. Press the Triangle button again when it reaches the end of the meter. I’ve put the diagram from before here for you, just in case; ____________________________ __________ || | | | Press | || || | | | (/\) | || || |____________________________| |___Here___| || You may have to dodge for several moments after throwing each bomb. Note about the locations of the 4 yellow circles. There are 2 in front of him, 1 on his left and 1 on his right. Do this 4 times and you’re done! Now there’s just one more boss fight to go... ##################################################################### Final Boss – Eddie Brock/Venom ###################################### Photo - After you slam the steel planks down to weaken him. While he’s weakened is the best time. Oh yeah, he’s back and Harry isn’t here to help you this time. Venom has a new attack, a ground pound. When he slams his fist onto the ground, jump away from him. So how are we meant to beat Venom?? Well, you remember how symbiotes are extremely sensitive to sound right? They can’t stand loud noises. The ringing bell in the church weakened the symbiote long enough for Peter to tear it from him self. In one of the corners of this construction site are some metal planks. Use the same strategies on Venom as you did before. As soon as you’ve whittled his health bar down enough, you’ll see a green exclamation mark that’s leading you over to those steel planks. Get into the yellow circle on the ground and press the Triangle button. Spidey will use his webbing to slam a metal plank onto the ground, creating a VERY LOUD NOISE! Venom cannot stand this and it will cause him to be momentarily stunned. Now’s your chance to hit him with a longer combo! You’ll get to do this at least 3 times during the fight. Keep at it and you’ve got the monster! Alternatively you could just use the cheap strategy mentioned above in the first Venom battle section! Game complete!! ##################################################################### Phew! Main story over and done with! Congratulations. But wait, there’s still plenty more things to do around the city. Those gangs need to be taken care of, you still need to collect all of the meteorite fragments, there’s races that need completing, you can finish upgrading Spidey on the Hero Upgrade chart and now there is a whole other set of things for you to collect – The Spider Emblems. See the Unlockables section below to see what you can unlock! ------------------- VII) Boss photos – When to take them To reach that elusive 100%, you’ll need to take photos of the bosses. This can prove to be quite difficult, so here I have listed the best possible time to take a snap shot of those super villains; Carlyle – When he’s been forced out of the sky, use your Square, Square, Triangle combo on him and when he’s lying on the floor, that’s when you shoot... you camera that is! Kraven the Hunter – After he gets dizzy from dashing around the area (after he’s consumed his potion) that’s the best time. The Lizard – Lure him over to one side of the area and then immediately afterwards, swing over to the other side. This should give you plenty of time to position the camera correctly and take his picture. The Lizard Transformed - If you can, get behind one of the generators and Mega Lizard will almost always be on the other side. Edge to the side of the generator so that he still can’t get to you and take his photo. Morbius Vampire - After he’s been snagged in the web net. Shriek and Morbius – Quite easy here. Pull the planks off of a window, lure Michael into the light and then move away slightly. While he is stunned and Shriek is repairing the window, NOW is the time to take those pictures! (Note that you may have to do this method twice). Sandman – During his healing sand tornado is the best time. Eddie Brock – Make sure to take his picture while he’s dressed up in his dime store Spidey suit. You need to do this before the cutscene! It’s quite easily missable, because Eddie Brock doesn’t really pose you much of a threat at all ya know? At least until he gets the symbiote... Venom. During the last fight with him, after you slam the steel planks down to weaken him. While he’s weakened is the best time. OR, if you want a challenge, try to take his picture in the first fight with him! Jump across from him and try to position the camera as he advances menacingly towards you. And there you go! ------------------- VIII) Unlockables Black Suit – Are you missing your black suit? Well, you can get it again! How, you ask? Simple... kinda! Collect all 50 Spider Emblems scattered around the city. This time however, the black suit is controlled by Peter. You no longer get that annoying black aura around the screen leading to you passing out. That’s right, you no longer pass out from wearing the black suit! Also, when you want to switch back to regular Spidey, you don’t have to force the Symbiote off you. A yellow sign saying “Congratulations!” – To get this simply astonishing unlockable, you need to collect all 100 Meteorite Fragments scattered around Manhattan and get 100%. Isn’t this just the most amazingly astonishingly outrageously cool thing you’ve ever seen in a game before!? I’m at a loss for words at how Vicarious Visions managed to place this incredible unlockable in the game. They really outdid themselves. I mean, who would have thought that for all the hours you spent collecting the 100 Meteorite fragments, that you would get THIS unlockable?? A sign that congratulates you!! It’s just so freaking amazing!!! I am not lying about this, repeat, I AM NOT LYING ABOUT THIS! And forget the rumours you may have heard, Venom is NOT a playable character, he’s only a boss that you fight against in the main story. But hey, who needs a playable Venom when you can get a little sign that congratulates you?? *Faints because of the aura of awesomeness that is this unlockable* More Trick Races – To unlock more Trick Races, simply complete all of the current ones that there are at the moment. You can find them by going to your mini map and pressing the left or right buttons to find them. Remember to try for that Superhero time on each race ya little monkey! Unlock playable New Goblin – Buy the Playstation 3 version. ------------------- IX) Locations of the Meteorite Fragments and Spider Emblems Some of the users at GameFAQs have scanned in the official Bradygames map with all the locations of the Spidey Emblems and Meteorite Fragments and have given me kind permission to use the maps in this walkthrough, so a big thanks to them. Unfortunately, the official map with the locations is WAY off, so these great users have been placing the correct locations on the map. Here is the map with the current locations; http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h297/NIck_Kazama/SM3MeteorEmblemmap .jpg Should the above link not work, then try it a few more times by editing the end of the link (the “.jpg” part). If that still doesn’t work, then try the second link below. http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h297/NIck_Kazama/SM3EandM.jpg If it STILL doesn’t bloody work, then just email me for the maps. ------------------- X) Frequently asked questions Q) Hello, I was reading your Guide to Spidey 3 great job. I was a little disappointed with the shortness of this game, however I was reading the back of the case for the game and it says "Choose One of 5 storylines to play including the movie plot" Do you know what this is referring to? Are there alternate stories? Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. Again great job on the guide A) Thank you very much! To answer your question, the other “5 storylines” are the other parts to the story (you know, like Morbius and Shriek, Carlyle, etc). At some points in the game you can chose which 2 parts of the 5 part story you want to do. Take the early part of the main story, you get 2 little icons on your screen. This means that you can either go and beat Carlyle (1 story), or go and take on the Lizard instead (Story 2). I would have liked it if each story was longer, because these 5 storylines all feel like exactly the same 1 story line. ------ Q) Well, Here’s the thing.... First can I say what a great guide you made, it’s the best spider-man 3 guide I’ve read. Second, I need a little help. I went and did the thing that everyone else does when they get a new game, Play it to get through the levels and didn’t look at the big picture ( The 100% ending ) So I got to the Sand Man Fight in the subway and it Hit me.... I forgot to take the Super villains Photos!!! So I went around and got all the gangs photos but I need pictures of Kraven, The Lizard, The Lizard Transformed and all the other lizard creatures, Plus Morbius and his wife. But I’ve defeated them, they’re gone!!! Do I need to start again or is there away to get these pics? Thanks!!! A) Thank you! Sadly, you will have to start a new game to get those pictures. The same thing happened to me with the Eddie Brock photo. I didn’t know when you were supposed to take it and I ended up missing it… I had to restart the game 3 times to get the photos – The first time I didn’t bother with many of the photos, the second time I missed the Eddie Brock (in the fake, dime store Spidey suit) photo and in my third play through, I’m still trying to find one of the H- Bomber’s so I can take his picture. I’ve been searching for hours on end for him, but he NEVER shows up. ------ Q) If you do manage to take all villain photos apart from 100% what else do you get? If anything. Also what happens if you get police 100% control of Manhattan? Thanks. A) For getting all the Villain photos, you get 15 exp points. For getting the Police in total control of New York, you get some more exp points. I know, the rewards should have been a little better! ------ Q) Anyway, I just want to know if you can slingshot on the PS2 version of spider man 3. And if you can I would like to know how, thanks. A) Sadly, you cannot slingshot on the PS2 version. I saw a video on Youtube once where Spidey used the Slingshot move, he ended up "flying" past half of the city, it looked like such a blast to do! So, yeah it pains me to say it, but the Slingshot move isn’t in the PS2 version. ------ Q) I have a question about the game: what suggestions do you have for web slinging faster? I'm trying to get the 200 mph achievement, but I can't get past 163. I'm using boost at the bottom of the swing arc, and letting go at the bottom as well, but nothing seems to be working. Thanks for your help! A) Vicarious Visions made a big mistake in making SM3’s web swinging similar to Ultimate Spiderman. Have you noticed that Spidey almost always wants to attach his web line to the corner of the building he has is currently passing? You need to try and get the web line to the far corner of the building you’re swinging past. The only problem with this is that Spiderman always wants to attach his web line to the wrong place at the wrong time. You should try releasing the web line in different places in order to make him reach a point that will enable him to swing at higher speeds. Hope that helped you! ------ Q) Anything you know about "friend or foe" would be nice. A) At this point, very little is known about Spiderman Friend or Foe. The only known things are that it is based on the Spiderman movie franchise (like the previous Spiderman movie video games and that it will have “A new take on the legend”. I’m not sure of anything else about it, but I’m excited! The official website is up right now, but at the moment it’s just a little cutscene featuring Spiderman and the Green Goblin. Spidey looks amazing, but the Green Goblin looks like an action figure or something, but hey, remember that it’s probably only beta graphics! Only time will tell us more about Spiderman Friends or Foe… ------ Q) Is Venom Unlockable? A) Venom isn't playable, it was confirmed earlier today by somebody that showed visible proof that he had obtained 100% and gotten all the Meteorite Fragments and Spider Emblems. It disappointed many of us! Don’t believe what you read on websites, Eddie Brock is unplayable and that’s final! ------ Q) How do you do game saves because I can’t do all the emblems and meteorites A) Sadly, I haven't the foggiest on how to do game saves. But I'm sure that in the near future, somebody will be kind enough to upload their 100% completed save file... Trust me if I could, I would have already uploaded quite a few for people to play a round with. ------ Q) How long do you have to stay in the black suit for things to get nasty (i.e.: leaves fall off trees, people start saying mean things about Spider-Man)? A) Do a few crimes in the black suit and the city should start to get very gritty. In some missions during the main story, the city will suddenly look completely ruined out of the blue... ------ Q) How do I commit crimes in the Black Suit? A) . . . . . um, you don’t. Spidey may go a little bad when he dons his black symbiote suit, but he’s still a superhero albeit a very violent superhero! I mean, watch his subway fight with Sandman in the movie! ------ Q) Hey what on earth do I do when that glitch occurs that makes me not able to continue the story? It messed up before Escape Under New York. A) Restart your console. If the problem persists then you may have to restart your game. It's a real pain in the butt, I know. Silly Vicarious Visions and their (billions of) glitches! ------ Q) Can I get the bosses photographs after completing the game? A) In answer to your question, you'll sadly have to restart the game and play through it again to get those pictures. I had to play through the game 3 times to get all the photos. They should have had Spidey say something like "Hmm, I should take this guys photo now..." to remind you! ------ Q) Is there anyway to swing around flagpoles and light posts? A) Sadly, Vicarious Visions took that feature out as well. They left hardly anything from Spiderman 2 in Spiderman 3. ------ Q) I was looking at your SM3 guide and I'm wondering if you can help me. I'm having trouble on (you guessed it) the lizard mission. It looks like the game transitions immediately from lizard mission one to two. Is that right? I took my pics, returned them. I remember following the footprints up a building and stuff, but I must have gone the wrong way and gotten side-tracked by other missions. Now I don't know where to go to pick the trail back up and the lizard 2 mission isn't available to me on the map. Do you know if there's any way to pick up where I left off? What part of the map was the entrance to the sewers where you pull up that grate? Is there a mission that I need to do before it will show up on the map? The only missions available to me are the stupid gang missions and the Bugle photo missions. There doesn't seem to be a way to progress the story of the game (if there is one). A) Hmmm, try the Bugle Photo mission and I think you'll be able to continue. If not then that means that you've uncovered yet another glitch in this game. You'll probably have to start a new game if you still can't continue after the Bugle Photo missions. ------ Q) Hey man u did a GREAT job that was a really great guide one of the best. Anyways I cant believe u cant play as Venom I was looking for meteorites for DAYS then I took a look at your guide then it said venom is not playable then I was mad. I don’t get it they do such a good job for Playstation 3 and XBox 360 but there getting lazy with ps2. Well like I said good job with your guide. Oh one question is there anything that’s fun to do after u beat the game. A) Wow, thanks dude! I really appreciate the comments. I know, Activision really landed them selves in hot water when they lied to us. They said that PS2 (and Wii) owners would be getting the EXACT same game as the next gen owners, only with slightly less better graphics. Instead we got an extremely half arsed game built from scratch, made by a completely different company. After the game, there's really nothing more to do except try to get a pointless 100%. Then go and plat Spiderman 2 again! ------ Q) Do you have any tips for finding the "Advanced" gang members to photograph? I am currently 56% complete on my first run through the game on the PlayStation 2 and have noticed that the only time I seem to find the "Advanced" gang members is in the Shakedown the Gang missions where you have to go to the question marks on the map to find leads on the current boss you are tracking. This was true on the Lizard shakedown with the Dragon Tails and The Shriek's Hideout shakedown with the Waste Tribe. I have not found any "Advanced" gang members from the Apocalypse gang or the H-Bomber Advanced Knight. A) Sadly, it would seem that (in my game at least) that all the enemies you face are random. I’ve been searching for the Sweeper enemy of the H Bombers, but he never EVER turns up. I’m beginning to think that it might be yet ANOTHER bloody glitch in the game. ------ Q) I have a Spider-Man 3 for the XBOX 360. Is it still possible to have multiple save lots as in Spider-Man 2 or do I only get one now? A) Eh sorry, like the title of this walkthrough suggests, this FAQ is for the PLAYSTATION 2 VERSION of Spiderman 3 the game. So, I know next to nothing about the X-Box 360 and the Playstation 3 versions of this game. I only know that Treyarch developed the next gen versions and that they put time and effort into them... unlike Vicarious Visions who thought it would be really cool to put a multitude of unfixed glitches into the Playstation 2 version of the game. And the Wii version, I think... ------ Q) I read on IGN that you can play as Sandman, New Goblin and Venom. I know you can't play as Venom, and I seriously have doubts that you can play as New Goblin and Sandman. A) Don't believe that. The only playable character is Spidey and that’s it. If New Gobby, Sandy and Venom were playable then proof would have been posted by now and I would have listed it in my guide. -_^ ------ (((Don’t ask me any more questions as this is the final update!))) ------------------- XI) Trivia If you change Spidey’s costume to Black Suit just before an FMV starts then he’ll be wearing Black Suit in the FMV! If you have Spidey stick to a wall and leave him for a few seconds, then he’ll change his pose. One of Spidey’s quotes has him saying “I should start giving out T- Shirts, you know ones that say ‘Spiderman kicked my butt and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt?’” This is a reference to the game Grand Theft Auto Vice City where, once you completed the game, you got a T- Shirt for the main protagonist Tommy Vercetti that had ‘I beat Vice City and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt’ printed on it. Whilst fighting Apocalypse gang members, they’ll sometimes switch on a jukebox that you can destroy. The Hulk is mentioned by Bruce Campbell after you obtain an upgrade on the Hero Upgrades Chart, as is Ant Man. Unlike the Playstation 3, XBox 360 and PC versions of Spiderman 3, the Playstation 2 and Nintendo Wii versions were developed by Vicarious Visions. Spiderman 3 is not this company’s first time developing a Spiderman game, as they were the ones that brought us Spiderman 2 – Enter Electro for the original Playstation console. Bruce Campbell sadly doesn’t eat a sandwich in this game (PS2 and Wii versions at least). I’m not orally fixated or anything! Every single mother in the city, no matter what decent she is, will speak to you with an Asian accent after you return her kid to her. A very bad Asian accent I might add... The cover for the game is incorrect. The spider emblem’s 2 top legs on the red piece of the suit should be pointing straight up; instead the whole spider emblem looks like the one that shows when the black suit fully takes over. Hey, when you want to web zip up the side of a building, you just need to press and hold the R1 button down to have our hero quickly use multiple web zips to scale the building instantly! When you get to the bridge with Morbius, web-sling to the bridge and fall in the water. This does not make you fail the mission, but it takes away the timer and if you fall into the water about half way across the bridge, you end up across the bridge very close to the hideout when you are re-spawned. - Mike Howard Right before the "My Date With MJ" mission, do not go to the destination mark. Instead, go around and start beating the gangs down. The Rage meter will go up, but when it gets to the black circle on the edges, it won't go any farther. It will let you do the strong attacks without passing out. Also, you can't take the black suit off. Hope this helped! - Cole Atchison Just wanting to let you know about the easier way to take the lizards 1st picture. In the room where Spidey mentions he can't climb the walls, you can see the lizard in the room where you fight him. Take it from up there instead of doing it while fighting....trust me, it works. - From.....your friendly neighbourhood Eiljam (hehe!) ------------------- XII) Glitches One of the main reasons that many people don’t like this game is because it is ridden with glitches, some big and some small. Now I’ve heard of a game with lots of glitches before but this is just effing ridiculous! Here are the glitches I’ve located at the moment ; 1) Males sometimes speak with female voices and vice versa. 2) Buildings and objects in the distance sometimes have sections missing. 3) Sometimes, the meteorite fragments and the spider emblems don’t make that little beeping sound. 4) Sometimes you will get the Mission Failed screen straight after starting the next part of a gang mission. 5) At times, Spidey’s web line will attach to nothing at all, yet he’ll still be able to swing. 6) Whenever Spidey picks up a child, the kid will always go through his arm before going onto the Web Head’s shoulder. 7) Whilst holding a kid, climb up a wall and move the camera to Spidey’s side. He isn’t even holding the child! 8) On very rare occasions, the screen will go pitch black during a mission. You’ll still be able to see the Health Bar and the little icons telling you were you’ll need to go, but you can’t see anything else. You can however still control Spiderman and hear the sounds of the city... 9) Spidey will (very rarely) be able to land in mid air after a jump sometimes. 10) Every single pedestrian can (and probably will) walk through anything they can. 11) During missions where you have to give a policeman some evidence they will (very rarely) be invisible. 12) Some people have reported receiving no icons at all making them unable to progress with the story. This mostly happens during the “Escape Under New York” mission. 13) One time I chose to do a transport the patient to an ambulance mission, but the ambulance was way too far away. The patient’s health declined to zero and it failed me. That ambulance was way way WAY too far away. 14) One time I had Spidey jump and I saw his shadow in the air, right above him. 15) Ambulances sometimes park through bus stops and walls. 16) When you rescue a pedestrian and take them to a waiting ambulance, they will sometimes thank you twice with a different voice each time. 17) Hey, do you remember those little red lights located on the corners of some sky scrapers? I saw one of those little red lights about 10 cm away from a building. In other words, it was flying! 18) You know when you get a city patrol / mission voice over from the police woman? Well one time, Spidey said “Yeah! No one can stop me now!” instead of the police woman speaking. 19) As I delivered one guys bag to him after a crime patrol, he didn’t say anything. 20) Even after you defeat all of the gangs, you will still get “Police Crackdown!” notifications. 21) There’s this building at the very North-East corner of Central Park, on the East side. If you climb to the top of it, then you’ll notice that you can jump on top of those 6 big fans on top and see the streets below. But how would you be able to when there should be walls in the way, blocking your view? This also happens with a few other buildings as well. 22) On some sky scrapers, if you try to crawl down to the ground, then Spidey’s top half will disappear underneath the side walk while he continually crawls. 23) You know how when Spidey changes his position if you leave him sticking to a wall? That’s only supposed to happen if you have him upright, but it once worked for me when he was sideways. 24) I had Spiderman stick to a wall once and he was positioned on it in a really weird way. He was crawling up the wall VERY slowly and his top half was inside the building… 25) Just before the first Morbius fight, Spidey will mutter – “You ticked me off on the wrong night Count!” twice. 26) When the Lizard knocks those 3 people off of the building in the part where you’re chasing him around the town (just before the sewer bit of the game), what exactly is that lady on the far right hanging on to…? Does she have Spider powers as well? 27) You know how the ground beneath you cracks while landing on it from a long distance? Well, a few times the ground was heard cracking and bits flew off of the ground, but there was absolutely no visible damage to it whatsoever. 28) In the sewers, when you have to make you’re way through the long tunnel with the walls of steam throughout, if you move the camera downward then you can see that the “sewage” is really just a flat surface that covers Spidey’s lower legs. 29) Cars will sometimes drive right through you when you take the black suit off. 30) One time I saw a car appear out of nowhere right in front of me. 31) I started a random crime and straight after I started swinging to the location, it said “Mission Complete”… 32) Sometimes you can’t start a random crime event because straight after the girl starts talking, you get a police crackdown message on screen at the same time. 33) Some object appeared right in front of me on a rooftop as I ran along it. 34) During the cutscene with shriek on the building (the one just before you fight her the first time) out of nowhere the sound of Peter being hit “Agh!” was heard. 35) When I went to hand over a bomb (to a normal civilian I might add), Spidey crouched down to put it on the floor, but he was still holding it, as the normal pedestrian walked forward a little bit. 36) While swinging through the trees in Central Park, invisible objects will get in your way. 37) Sometimes when Spidey swings a bomb into the air, it doesn’t explode and just... vanishes… 38) The web targeting system keeps switching between the enemy your facing and an enemy that’s behind you. Very VERY annoying! 39) One time I did a charged jump, but Spidey didn’t jump until a few seconds later. 40) On some occasions, when I view the map, it will slightly be moving forward and when I zoom out, it will automatically zoom in again. 41) A similar thing sometimes happens with the photo mode, it’ll just be zooming in constantly. 42) On my fourth play through, I noticed that some of the audio clips where repeated at the start. For example, Bruce Campbell’s line went like this ; “What would Spi-What would Spiderman be without his spider powers…?” It only started happening on my fourth play through and I don’t know why it started then, and it is VERY frequent now… 43) When I saved a random African American civilian once, he slid back several feet AND he spoke to me in a white man’s voice. 44) One time I was trying to fight some Apocalypse gang members and I tried to run around a car. Spiderman’s health started depleting REALLY quickly for some reason. 45) Hey, Morbius can turn himself invisible ya know! It’s true! When you have to transport the weakened Morbius to Shriek’s hideout, pick him up, stand still and then pause the game. Remember how the screen swivels around when you pause the game? Well, you’ll now see that Spidey is holding nobody! 46) Another glitch for the carrying Morbius section! Jump and do 1 flip in the air whilst holding the weakened Morbius. Pause the game immediately whilst Spidey does his flip, and you will see that he’s not holding onto Morbius at all! Michael appears behind the Web Slinger. 47) I’m not sure if this should make it into the glitches section, but what the heck – Spiderman finds out where Shriek’s hideout is, he then transports the weakened Morbius to it. On the way, listen to him say “Where’s Shriek’s hideout??” 48) At one point during the Shriek and Morbius dual boss battle, I pressed the Triangle button to make Spidey pull the planks off of the right window and he walked extremely fast into the centre of the circle! It was quite funny! 49) When chasing Shriek down the long tunnel (where Shriek starts trying to play with our hero’s mind), he yelled “NO!! MJ!!” immediately afterwards he said his line “Yeah! No one can stop me now!” 50) If you get hit by a train during your first battle with the Sandman in the subway, then sometimes, Spidey will phase through it. 51) While on my way to the final 4 boss fights, I could see through one building. 52) Also on my way to the final 4 boss battles, Spidey thought it would be fun to jump exactly sideways! 53) During the Venom battle, Harry said “Knock him up into the air and I’ll do the rest!” after he had attacked Venom. 54) One time during the Mega Sandman boss battle, at the very start, I was sucked into him and instantly failed the fight. 55) Also, during the Mega Sandman boss battle, I saw that his hand stayed in the ground for the duration of the fight. Whenever I touched it, it damaged me slightly. 56) Yet ANOTHER bloody glitch in the damn Mega Sandman boss fight!! At one point, the camera went underneath the ground for a few seconds. 57) Yes, another glitch for the Mega Sandman fight... another one... at one point he said “Now you really are an itsy bitsy spider!” and “Agh!!” at the same time. 58) Yep, another one for the Mega Sandman fight. At 2 bombs down and 2 to go, my health bar just started going down for some reason. 59) Oh Em Gee, how many glitches does this boss battle need? Is this Vicarious Visions’ way of making the game more of a challenge?? Anyways, one time I had to dodge Mega Sandman’s attacks for like 10 minutes before Harry finally dropped off a bomb to me. The sandman only ever did his pop up hand attack which was extremely annoying. 60) Oh yeah, one more for the Mega Sandman fight. One of the bombs didn’t even go into Marko, but it disappeared... 61) This glitch really pissed me off. The first Spider Emblem you see didn’t even bloody show up. For God’s sake Vicarious Visions. I re- did the four final boss fights again and again, but it STILL didn’t turn up. No Black Suit for me then, isn’t that right Vicarious “We’ll rush this game to make money!” Visions 62) My attacks frequently went through Venom, causing him no damage whatsoever. 63) During the first Venom fight, Spiderman uttered “Yeah! No one can stop me now!” twice in a row while getting battered by Brock. Spidey, I don’t think that Venom needs you to say what he’s thinking! 64) During the first Venom fight, on the second time that I had to knock him up into the air so that Harry could do his miniscule 1 point of damage, Spiderman never came into contact with Venom, and neither did Harry, but the cutscene proceeded along anyway... And these are just the glitches that I’ve found! ========================================= The following glitches were submitted by various people via e-mail. Thank you to all that submitted a glitch to me! ========================================= 65) After bringing an injured person to an ambulance if you get on top of the ambulance and press "A" you will get inside of it. – gamerelite1 66) Can I say that I found a glitch that is not in the walkthrough? Do you know Spiderman can push people walking straight into them? Well, if you try to push someone into the water, that person will walk on air... quite strange, uh? Maybe this is already in the guide and I missed it, but... cars appears form nothing and disappear while you are not looking. Thanks again for you walkthrough: it was very useful. – DracoMT2 67) Sometimes when you see enemies, vehicles, people and other things, sometimes they don't have detail, just white things. No face, just a body - Kyde Dimaandal 68) After finishing taking all photos you get 15 upgrade points, after that, if you save the game and then restart the game(not restarting as into re-load the save, but as returning to the Wii main menu and restarting the game completely) and load the save you just made, you will get the 15 upgrade points again, you can then save again and repeat for unlimited upgrade points. - Neo Angelus 69) Sometimes the game gives you a new mission objective (only on gang missions) and after about 5 seconds it says that you successfully completed the objective - Neo Angelus 70) Sometimes when a ‘Protect The News Van’ mission is given, the news van is not(or out of range) spawned, thus the gang members have nothing to smash and will be standing around nothing. Neo Angelus 71) Sometimes when a rescue a person mission is given, the person is spawned out of range and the gang members just run around without taking the person, leaving the person just standing around without any danger. - Neo Angelus 72) Sometimes on evidence missions(or anything that needs to be returned to the police) the police officer you have to return the object(evidence) to engages combat with nearby spawned gang members, this will make the police officer leave his predefined spot and unable to receive the object(evidence) and you unable to finish the mission - Neo Angelus 73) Sometimes when on a (gang-)mission where you need to return(or give) an object to a person, you will fail the mission objective if you, when carrying the object, smash into other objects at high speed.(at least it happened to me when I accidentally smashed into the wall behind the person I needed to deliver the object to, happened when I was ran over by car, happened again when I smashed into a random wall, that is why I suspect smashing into things at high speed, bit uncertain on the high speed though, I just think that high velocity is needed, because it does not happen every time I smash a wall) – Neo Angelus 74) After I finished the last mission objective in a gang mission, the NPC thanked me for returning the object in question and after that the game said Mission Failed and I had failed the mission(though I did complete every objective successfully) - Neo Angelus 75) The above glitch happened again, but this time it was even worse, because after completing the last objective it said Mission Successful (or what is says when you successfully complete a mission) and after that (after about five seconds) it said Mission Failed with the results of failing the mission (so the area was kept under gang control) – Neo Angelus 76) This time it isn't a Glitch, but a solution to a Glitch and maybe something useful to know(though I suspect you already know, or it is just too logical) the fix is for the Glitch where a Police Officer(the one you need to give the evidence(or other things) to) will join a battle if gang members are nearby leaving his designated spot and never returning to the green circle place...after which you can not give him the evidence in the green area(circle)...but if you lay the evidence on the ground close to the Police Officer it will still pick it up and you will complete the objective... – Neo Angelus 77) When you pick up a person to get them to safety from a gang, sometimes the person is standing up on top of Spiderman while he is swinging them away – monzurul 78) During the venom battle, is I tried to do a web combo. After I finished, a long string of web was attached to me, even if I run around, it still is attached to me – monzurul 79) When I was taking some pictures I saw a pedestrian falling down from nowhere then he landed in the middle of the street and stood there - Till Lindemann 80) I was swinging by and stop to crawl a little and Spidey started crawling backwards, his hands and feet were on the other side his back was facing the wall. Maybe for the Playstation 3 version only) - Till Lindemann 81) Me and my friend were just playing Spiderman 3. And every thing was running smoothly until I got to the level where you have to chase the lizard through New York. Instead of chasing the lizard through New York I was chasing a giant red exclamation point. I was cracking up because when he is rampaging through, normally you see the lizard but here’s this big red exclamation point flipping cars and knocking people off buildings – Brian 82) On the ps2 version, when you go on a bomb call, sometimes the bombs do not blow when you throw them. I have encountered a few that keep you from progressing the story. - chaotix 2007 83) I have been on an evidence mission and there was nobody there to deliver it too. - chaotix 2007 84) I have also had one time when the next part of the mission came to me. IE an enforcer mission after an officer assist, the gang was there after the officers were done talking. - chaotix 2007 85) In the missions where you have to bring the child to their mother, after you put the kid down, in the five seconds you have before the screen goes black, you can pick the kid back up and swing away with him, and no one will say a word. – dballzbeo 86) Yesterday when I was playing, I was taking the vamp to shriek and the sky kept going from clear blue to black cloudy. Shortly after some of the people on the street turned into big red "!". A few minutes later during the battle with shriek the game froze. I tried it again and the same thing happened. It didn't do it the third time though. – Joe 87) Spiderman can fall/web sling into the middle of buildings...and slowly "vibrate" out of the wall again. Go Spidey! - Spence 88) Sometimes if your on ground level webbing up (its happened to me on a small wall, lamp post and I think some buildings) you web up, come off the ground....but the web is just a solid line, and your hovering off the ground, moving around attached to this solid line keeping you up. - Spence 89) Spider-man struggles (or in my case CAN NOT) swing all the way under the bridge to the other side. For some reason he falls before shooting his web and hits the water. - Spence 90) When you start some gang missions on the smaller island, you will have to travel back across the bridge. Instead of trying though, sometimes the game will decide for you that you're no good and fail the mission for you....or sometimes just stop the mission and not tell you either way. How nice of them.... - Spence 91) You can get the upgrade to uppercut people allowing you to "juggle" them by repeatedly hitting them once in the air. ...Can anyone do that?! On my game he doesn’t hit them high enough OR even straight up- he just his them upwards- but forward so you cant jump and attack. - Spence 92) When you web sling/zip into a building spider-man ALWAYS runs down the building in stead of just clinging to it or going up. I don’t know if it’s a glitch- but it’s REALLY annoying.... – Spence “I second that!” – Nick Kazama 93) I was retrieving a stolen purse from the apocalypse gang and the person it was given back to was a man. – Josh David 94) Another weird on was when I was doing a patrolling mission for one of the gangs and I followed the marker to where I was supposed to go but there was nothing there so I couldn’t finish the mission – Josh David 95) Hey, I found a glitch during the first fight with Sandman. I went to hit the button to do a counter and as Spidey went to do it he got hit by a train coming by. well he didn’t finish the move and when you were able to move again it was still like a cutscene where he would have thrown him into the train and sandman just sat there and did nothing I tried to web him up and all of a sudden he disappeared so yeah I had to start from my last save so I figured id tell ya so it don’t happen to ne1 else - J.C. Reeves 96) I was battling one of the waste tribe shield guys and I pulled off his shield but when I went to hit him I was hitting an invisible shield - Josh David 97) As I was swinging around, a came across QUITE a few buildings that cause a rather sad glitch... if there is a roof with anything on it, water towers, vents, anything it just needs to be low or on the opposite side of you. Well if you go to swing from that building, your web attaches to it, and as the web line come across the building and hits the edge of the building the line becomes rigid all the way across. If you let Spidey sit like that for a bit, he actually just hangs in one spot as the line is almost parallel to the ground - Garry Gabriel 98) Sometimes on a gang mission where I have to save a news van neither the van nor the gang members spawn keeping me from progressing – Autoswing 99) I found that when I'm in the middle of an action like climbing atop a car, or doing an aerial flip during the shriek/spire fight atop the building, and I am interrupted by a loading screen(like for objective completion or the next part of the shriek fight) I would get stuck in position when the screen finishes loading. Atop the car I would have been sitting on, I end up sitting on the street and I can't move. Also I was doing a flip with Shriek and I got locked into a position that looked like Neo from the Matrix jumping up in the air with his arms extended away from him, and I would slowly drift down to the ground diagonally in the same position - AceHunter71 100) There are times when I swing through the city and I run into invisible walls. I don't know if any one else has come across this problem yet but it is really bugging me -The Game 101) Once I paused the game but nothing but the background of the menu showed up....basically it froze. I had to start the gas leaking because of shriek mission again - ICcold 102) Sometimes on certain buildings if you attack a web to the corner of it (you might have to do this while walking/on the ground) Spidey with shoot a web to it and jump up and just stay there. You cannot swing to the swing a lot and your just stuck there until you let go of R2 - ICcold 103) Sometimes when you finish a mission the audio track of the people is delayed and it starts much later than it should and goes over the loading screen...I also had music problems because it would load a short clip of a sound and play it over the current mission I'm on over and over and over...quite annoying - ICcold 104) If you wall crawl on a building down towards the street and web zip at the right height (at least I think it is that way...could be some other way) Spidey will web zip into the ground and his head will clip into the sidewalk and he will keep on Web Zipping as long as you hold/tap R1 until he walls off the corner or you feel like continuing with the game – ICcold 105) I got all the emblems so I’m really happy, but, I am experiencing some glitches. For example, that timer shows and I have to wait sometimes and that black aura still shows up sometimes too! - Sebastian Dunne 106) When you are called to save a shop keeper who doesn't pay his protection money, in the hotdog van. You may find that there is no gang members there, just that on its own. If this occurs you can not complete the mission and you must quit the mission. Also, sometimes ambulances are parked with their backs against a wall making it difficult to put your injured person on the floor. If this happens put them on the roof as close as you can to where the green circle would be. - Mr Deftino 107) I also noticed that after collecting 49 of the emblems it says that I only have 46. – Joe 108) After doing a crime patrol mission where I had to rescue a hostage Spiderman looks like he’s carrying someone but he’s not - Josh David 109) Extremely rare but if you let a car hit you on some rare occasion you’ll float up and away from the car looking like the car is still hitting you can get out of it by jumping though but it looks cool - rvg2012 110) Sometimes on gang missions wear you have to protect a TV news van, the van will be at the designated spot but the gang members won't making it impossible to complete the mission - rouguesquadron2000 111) Hey man I have another stupid glitch to tell you and it is about wearing the Black suit you see I already got all the Spider emblems and I also bought all of the Hero upgrades including all the health upgrades and the six melee combat upgrade then when I put on the black suit anytime my health bar will be reduced and I cannot perform the 6 melee combo attack and when your adrenaline bar is full it will be reduced to 0% again!! Damn Vicarious Visions they didn't even bother fix the glitches! - Alfonso Luis Maquilan 112) When You Return Evidence To A NYPC ("fuzz") Sometimes the person won't be a cop (VERY Rare but it happened to me twice) - Cole Atchison 113) When you fail to change suits after you complete an objective from a gang mission, the black suit will automatically (sorry for misspell) change into the red and blue suit and the 45 second timer will start - Cole Atchison 114) I don't know if this happened to anyone before but when I saved a hostage and I had to take him to the ambulance on the bridge from Roosevelt Island, the back of the ambulance was floating over the water. The yellow circle was right behind it so I had to climb under the bridge and when I placed him close to the circle, he was standing upside down under the bridge! That, I think, has to be the funniest thing I have ever seen from a video game. Thanks for the laughs! - Cole Atchison 115) When you get rid of a bomb, sometimes a building will be in the way. It will go right through it and it will look like it blew up in the building - Cole Atchison 116) When you are locating shards to get to Shriek's hideout, you might get stuck between two shards with enemies and you will have to back and forth until the game freezes - Cole Atchison 117) I found yet another glitch in the game that I did not see in your FAQ. When I was taking Morbius to Shriek's hideout I was swinging and accidentally ran into a car. All the sudden Morbius disappeared I went back thinking that I had dropped him and didn't see him. Then I noticed that my arms were in the shape of Morbius’ body and I was still holding him and he was just invisible! When I arrived at Shriek's hideout I could see him once gain. I agree with you though PS2 owners got ripped-off! – ryancobb 118) Hey man the glitch that you told me that you couldn’t find the emblems well I encountered that one when I played a new game all the spider emblems that I found at the previous were gone so you have to start another game hey it might sound stupid but in the end you will enjoy believe me I did it and **** Vicarious Visions - dudethathatesglitches 119) I believe I have found a glitch not present in your guide. I've beaten the game, and have gotten 49 emblems...the last one is nowhere in the city. I have heard that this is caused by starting a new game from the main menu, but this is on my first play-through. The emblem is not in any of the locations, and resetting the console is not helping. If this is in your guide, sorry, I didn't see it, but I thought it was worth pointing out. I think the only solution is to start a new game from the main menu. (Here's hoping this glitch doesn't make the glitches section longer than your extremely informative FAQ...) – seraphssavior 120) Sometimes after you have to bring a patient to an ambulance on a gang mission, you can set the patient down on the green area and then pick him/her up again, and he/she will be standing on your left shoulder, and you can then put them down anywhere you want, even if you're away from the ambulance, then still continue the mission. - David Adair 121) One glitch is that when you use Spiderman's earth breaker or that one move where you jump and then use your web to grab him then you kick him with 2 feet, sometimes Spiderman keeps staying in the air like he's "hovering". I think this works when the enemy is behind a car. Sometimes this works - SM3Player? 122) Another glitch is that when you have to talk to a gang member after you defeat him/her, they'll die then wake up to talk to you - SM3Player 123) Another glitch is that when you have the black suit, you're on top of a car, and when you're trying to take off the suit, the car might move and then you float. This works when you are at the last stage, when you keep pressing triangle. If you don't press it, you'll jump up and punch the air and then there will be some cracks on the "air" - SM3Player 124) Ha ha! This glitch made me laugh for days on end. It was a mission where I had to return a lost child to his mother. The child was a boy but he had a girl’s voice. He/she was also black but his mother was white with an Asian accent... HA HA!!! - Joel Felske 125) Sometimes when you jump up and try to do the strong web kick attack you just sort of twitch in the air and slow down your descent for a split second instead of attacking - Sim Lord1 Vicarious Visions... 125 glitches. One hundred and twenty five glitches!! Now that’s a LOT of glitches! For shame Vicarious Visions. Seriously, this game has more glitches than all my 42+ Playstation 2 games put together... and all my Playstation One games and that’s REALLY bad. I think that you shouldn’t make any more games okay? Or at least hire some games testers for crying out loud. You’ve proven that you rushed this game to make money. (((Don’t send me any more glitches! Any glitches sent to me now will be ignored, as this is the last update I’m ever gonna do! Thanks a lot to all those that contributed glitches to me! Give yourself a pat on the back and a cookie if you sent me one.))) ------------------- XIII) Quotes n’ Quips Here are some of the various quotes you’ll come across during the game; ======================= Peter Parker/Spiderman ======================= “Okay, hold still doc! This won’t hurt. . . . . . me.” “Just think of me as karma in a red and blue suit!” “Nice suit, Harry. But, don't you hate wearing hand-me-downs?” “If this is industrial espionage then maybe I’ll get a chance to say ‘Man, Spiderman!’” “What did I ever do to you? I mean seriously what??” “You ticked me off on the wrong night, Count!” “I’m a pretty average guy... so I guess that makes you below average!” “Admit it!

Uuugh, I gotta build a nose filter into this mask one of these days!” “You say the nicest things! Maybe you could talk to my landlord about an extension on my rent!” “Yep, I’m in the right place!” “With all things considered, you got off easy!” “No problem, I’m even better than I was before!” “Look out New York! Spiderman is better than ever!” “Tell all your friends that Spiderman’s a little tougher than he used to be.” “Wouldn’t it have just been easier to ask for an employee discount?” “Did that hurt? Good!” “You don’t have a thing to worry about with me on the job.” “Too bad that’s all ya got, I was hoping for more of a challenge!” “Doctor Connors!” “Gotta get these lizards off my back if I’m gonna catch up with Doc!” “I hope they don’t get any bigger than that guy!” “It’s a little too quiet all of a sudden...” “I’m not TRYING to hurt you... but there’s a pretty good chance of it happening anyway!” “Now, can’t let Doc Connors get away!” “How does it feel to go from the hunter to the hunted Kraven?” “You’re about to find out that spiders are much harder to kill than lizards!” “Looks like hunting season’s over! I’ll let the police know you’re here!” “Hmm, its’ shocking how I didn’t know of that before!” “What’s happening to me...?” “I should get some rest, my apartment sounds real good right about now...” “Good thing you’re here, now I don’t have to hold back any more!” “If this person they kidnapped is really a psychic, how come they didn’t know they were gonna be kidnapped?” “You can’t see it, but really, you’re making me blush...” “Oh... you’re good at this whole shady informer thing!” “Come on, isn’t anybody scared?

I’ll find out what you are!” “ALL THOSE TESTS ARE FOR NOTHING!!!” “I don’t lose... especially now!” “Anything broken? NO??” “Nice fangs, you’ll be picking them up off the ground in a minute...” “Wait, did Halloween come early and nobody tell me?” “That’s not the only thing that’s about to expire!” “Wow, either this guys a real vampire, or the best method actor I’ve ever seen!” “We both do!” “Careful doc, he could attack again!” “Pretty soon I won’t even be able to get arrested in this town; cops’ll just shoot me on site!” “Hot air is the best they could come up with? They should really leave the funny stuff to the professionals like me!” “They say New Yorkers are jaded, but this is kinda ridiculous.” “What happened to the good old days when bad guys had a little style? No offence, but you’re no Green Goblin.” “I wouldn’t call you a loser, but I’m definitely thinking it!” “This should be a happy ending. I beat the villain, got the girl and brought a family back together. But it's not that easy. Being Spider- Man always comes with a price. And today, that price was a steep one. What keep’s me going is Uncle Ben's words: "With great power...comes great responsibility." In the end people need heroes. As tough as it gets some days, I have to fight on. Maybe the best way to honour the people that I love, is to never stop being... your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.” ================== Eddie Brock/Venom ================== “What’s he up to?” “This isn’t over...” “God! How could you give this up!?” “Fair is fair Parker! Now let’s end this!” ==================== Flint Marko/Sandman ==================== “Now you're just an itsy bitsy spider!” “I’m this way because of a freak accident, what’s your excuse?” “Who’s the spider and who’s the fly!?” “Leave me alone pal, I’m trying to think...” “PENNY!!” “Who’s the big man now!?” “You’re not big enough for me, little man!!” “Now you really ARE an itsy bitsy spider!” “You’re gonna be a red and blue stain!” “I’ve got much more sand than you’ve got webs!” “You could hardly handle me when I was your size, what are you gonna do now!?” “Got a web big enough for me... little man!?” “Still playing the hero? I’ll give you a hero’s death!” “Death is too good for you!” ================= Mary Jane Watson ================= “Stop it, I’m gonna get sick!” “Peter, this is worse than a roller coaster!” “Woohoo!” “Wooooooooooh!!” “Stop it right now!” “Peter, do something before someone gets hurt!” ========================= Harry Osborne/New Goblin ========================= “Time to put the Sandman to sleep!” “Peter...” “Knock him up into the air and I’ll do the rest!” “Over here!” “Hey beach breath, I’m right here!” “Keep it up, he’s looking weakened!” ============================== Dr. Curtis Connors/The Lizard ============================== “You should not have followed me Spiderman!” “Don’t think you’ve won Sssssssspiderman!” “Sssssoon you will be my most powerful lizard ssssservant!” ** Note that these are the only 3 things that he actually says in the game. The other things he spouts are just generic screeching and growling noises. ============== Special lines ============== Mary Jane – You should start charging tourists for rides! Spiderman - No thanks. With my luck I'd get one of those passengers who stick gum under the seat. Jameson – Now, what does a piece like that need? Peter – To be thrown in the trash? Venom - God! How could you give this up!? Spiderman - Not sure about the name, but that face sure rings a bell. Venom – Like looking in a mirror, ain't it? Only I'm bigger... and better! Spiderman - I bet I could sue you for copyright infringement and win. Sandman – You saved her. Thanks Spider-Man. I'm sorry. I didn't want to fight you. I swear. It's just that Venom, well he said he'd kill her if I didn't help him. I had no choice. Spiderman - Well she's safe now. That's all that matters. ------------------- XIV) Nick’s review on Spiderman 3 Wondering what I felt of the game? Well, take a peek at my review of Spiderman 3 to find out! "Relax New Yorker’s, Spidey’s back in town!" Well, Spidey never left town but whatever. Spiderman is back for yet another adventure on the Playstation 2 (and various other consoles too). In the year of 2002, Treyarch developed the official Spiderman the movie game. I for one loved it, mainly because I was a huge Spidey fan back then (and still am now) and because I was younger. While it was a great game, it did have some problems that prevented it from being something really spectacular ; You couldn't reach ground level in the outdoor sections, Spidey's web lines still attached to the sky when he swung around the city and the difficulty was a nightmare during the later parts of the game (Oscorp security robots anyone?). Treyarch fixed some of these problems with their sequel Spiderman 2 and it became the truest, funnest, coolest Spiderman game to ever hit the Playstation 2. The biggest improvement was the web swinging amongst other things. The swinging physics alone made it an instant classic. Spidey game collectors like myself had high hopes for the comic book based Ultimate Spiderman video game adaption, but sadly it was a severely downgraded version of Spiderman 2. The swinging had become way too different (in a bad way), it felt slow and boring. The difficulty was also a monster. This didn't stop me from wanting Spiderman 3 though. A few months before the games release, Activision released lots of new info on it. You would be able to go down into the subways and sewers to free roam, the city was going to be much bigger, the graphics were going to be improved and much more……… on the next gen versions. How unfortunate that Activision didn't tell us that we PS2 owners (and Nintendo Wii owners) would not be getting the same game as the next gen owners. If there's one thing I cannot stand, it's being lied to and that's JUST what Activision did. We were supposed to be getting the EXACT same game as the next gen console owners only with slightly less powerful graphics, not an all new game made by different developers. With this, the free roaming subways and sewers were eliminated, the graphics were made worse, the gameplay was way different and many other things. I found out about all the bad stuff an hour after I pre-ordered the PS2 version. Graphics – Well… they don't look too bad, but they don't necessarily look good either. The only thing that looks PS2 worthy is Spidey's character model. The lighting on his model is somewhat close to the next gen version. He moves fluidly and everything so no complaints there. The city however is a different story, as it looks no better than the one featured in Spiderman 2. It actually doesn't look as good as the city featured in a game that was released in 2004. The pedestrians' mouths still don't move when they speak and when you look at a civilian walking past, he or she always lacks a decent frame rate. Usually when there is more than one thug on the screen, the frame rate drops drastically and it is very difficult to see what he hell is going on. Sound – Gotta give them props for the sound on this game. The songs are great and suit whatever mission you're doing. It's a shame that the track list is very short. Several stars of the Spiderman film franchise have come to reprise their roles from the movie. You've got Tobey Maguire returning as Spidey, Topher Grace as Eddie Brock, Thomas Haden Church as Flint Marko and in a series first, James Franco actually voices Harry Osborne. Also making his triumphant comeback is the always hilarious Bruce Campbell! From the start of the game, he's there giving you advice and generally funny lines. It's a shame that Campbell's dialogue is much more limited than it was in Spidey 2 as he gets all the best lines. Still, I'm thankful that he came back to narrate again. Now for the bad parts of the sound. Spiderman 3 the game has some of the most god awful forced accents I've ever heard in a game. Period. All the mothers of little children that you rescue all put on this really stereotypical Asian accent. Its really not nice to listen to. At other times, men speak to you with female voices and vice versa. I am not joking about this. Pedestrians even talk to you in two different accents sometimes! Gameplay – So, has Spiderman 3 made up for the horrendous bastardization of the web slinging found in Ultimate Spiderman? Nope. The web slinging is now a combination of Spidey 2's and Ultimate Spidey's swinging. The biggest problem I have with the swinging is that Spidey now has to almost always attach his web line to a corner of a building. The thing is, his web line always attaches itself to the corner of the building that you've just passed. This eliminates all speed from web swinging. At other times, he'll attach a line to a building you really didn't want him to. Sometimes he'll shoot a web line directly left or right of himself, so he will glide along the ground going either left or right. I even noticed that his web lines sometimes do not even attach to anything. The combat is not bad. Not great, but not bad. The upgrade system has changed a little and you now earn experience from doing things such as beating up thugs, or completing missions. Each time you acquire enough experience you will obtain a skill point which can then be used to buy new upgrades for Spidey. It's a nice new way to do the upgrade system and it would be great if the moves actually worked when you wanted them to. Take the Web Rodeo for example, that was easy to perform in Spidey 2, but in this game, Spidey simply attaches his web line to an enemy and if you're lucky, he'll swing them around when you move the left analogue stick. As least that's what happens in my game. Remember the sprint button in Spidey 2? Well, after Ultimate Spiderman, I had hoped that they would put it back in. They didn't. Now, the L2 button makes Spidey perform a little rolling dodge move that you probably won't be using much anyway. However, the gameplay isn't all that bad. The boss fights are a lot of fun and I usually hate boss fights. When you can get a super rare speedy swing, then web swinging feels a little decent. I also liked the Black Suit, sure it only upgraded Spidey a bit, but it was nice to switch back and fourth between Red Suit and Black Suit at any time in the game once you've unlocked it. Lifespan – The main story is over in about 4 hours. That's right, around 4 hours for the main story. Well, it’s even shorter than that as I completed it in under 4 hours. There are however plenty of other things to do around the city to keep you occupied. The races make their return from the previous two Spidey games, there are 4 major gangs in New York that have to be taken care of, there are two types of tokens to collect that are scattered around the city and you get to take (but not view) pictures of enemies. You can also unlock Black Suit again after the main story is finished, by collecting the 50 Spider Emblems that are hidden around the city. You can even collect the 100 Meteorite Fragments that are scattered across various roof tops if you want a little yellow message that says “Congratulations!”... I'm not lying about that by the way. Searching for the Spider Emblems can be quite frustrating by the way, as they sometimes do not make the blipping sound they're supposed to. The Playstation 3 and X-Box 360 version owners got it lucky. They can unlock the Black Suit again by simply completing the game. The one thing that we current gen console owners had over the next gen owners had to be given to them. Overall – Well, it was an enjoyable game in my opinion, but Activision really shouldn't have lied to us. They don't normally do that (I think), but they should definitely never lie to us again. I started setting out a walkthrough for this game within my first few minutes of playtime and I would have stopped and cancelled the guide immediately if I really couldn't stand Spidey 3 the game. I was pleased that my guide was the very first one for the PS2 version to be submitted to GameFAQs. Spidey 3 is fun, but it is too full of glitches. My FAQ lists a lot of glitches, there has to be over 50 of them now. So yeah, it's glitchy, the gameplay is nowhere near as great as it was in Spiderman 2 the game, but Spiderman 3 can be quite enjoyable, if you let it be. It's a good weekend game. But that’s it. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to do another mission... what?? Mission failed?? But I just started it! Damn glitches! ------------------- XV) People Like You Well, you may be wondering what this little section is all about right? Heh, I thought that all the e-mails I got regarding this guide were going to be questions about the walkthrough, or requests for the Spider Emblem and Meteorite Fragments maps. But then I got this e- mail ; =========================== Hi Nick, I don't know how you folks do it! A game comes out, and you write a walkthrough for it so quickly! I just want to say, I am a Dad, and my son Ryan just loves Spiderman, and he was bouncing off the walls with excitement about Spiderman 3 (the Movie) coming out, and then he wanted the game. It is too hard for him, of course (I thought, anyway), and in order to get through, we absolutely have to have a walkthrough. So, I just want you to know that of those thousands of views you get on your walkthrough, you have a lot of people who really need the help, and where it really makes some little kid out there very happy. This is certainly the case here, and I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work and effort. I'm off to play Spiderman 3 with Ryan now for his "special time" with Daddy. :) Reid ============================ Its people like you Reid, who make me want to keep writing walkthroughs and adding new content to older ones. So thank you! -_^ ------------------- XVI) Special thanks and No thanks Special thanks - Stan Lee and Steve Ditko for bringing us the Web Slinger - Sam Raimi for directing the Spidey movies and all the cast and crew that made the films possible - Vicarious Visions for making this game I guess - Spiderman cause he’s the star! - Black Suit for helping me out. I’ll get you back someday! I promise! - Everyone who emailed me with a new glitch or question to put up on the walkthrough - Alison Kaplan for informing me of Wonderdog’s evil doings - Me for writing this guide and constantly updating it - You for reading this guide, unless of course you’re someone I hate No thanks go to - Activision for lying about what PS2 and Wii owners would get - Treyarch for only developing the next gen console versions - Whoever’s bright idea it was to take out the free roaming subways and sewers from the PS2 and Wii versions of the game - Vicarious Visions for not fixing the multitude of glitches in this game and for giving us nothing for obtaining 100% completion - Some retard who complained about this guide being in the X-Box 360 version section on GameFAQs, even though that automatically happens, just like the 360 walkthrough appears on the PS2 section. He then got really stupid about it and started sending me “threatening” e-mails, saying that nobody wants me alive and how I should stop doing rude things with my parents. I would copy and paste his e-mails, but you would simply lose precious brain cells reading them. I are did losing brains cell reeding eemayls of his. His e-mail is email@example.com so feel free to send this poor sad idiot some spam. - Wonderdog.com for selling this guide without my permission - Cheat Code Central for also putting this guide on their website without my permission and ignoring e-mails that I have sent them telling them to take the guide off the site - Cheatcodes.com for also submitting this guide without my permission and then another user for uploading this guide in the WII SECTION of the site. Stupid idiot. Both he and the site are ignoring me and will not remove it, so **** them - Mycheats.com for hosting this guide without my permission and then acting all angry with me when I told them to take it down Remember that if you host my guide without my permission then I will not stop until its removed okay? Okay. Looks like you’re done now, go outside and play.
