    1-Introduction
    
    Hello and welcome to my Full FAQ/Walkthrough for Ultimate Spider-Man. As you
    already know, this game has been made according to the ultimate universe and
    you will notice many differences in the story-line if you have not read the
    ultimate spider-man comics. The game itself is pretty good but not without
    its share of flaws. I hope you enjoy the game as well as my FAQ.
    
    Plese note that although this FAQ is for the PC version of the game, 95% of
    the FAQ will be applicable to the console versions as well.

    7-The Story So Far...
    
    (Taken from The Manual)
    
    The Venom suit was designed by doctors Richard Parker and Edward Brock in an
    attempt to develop a cure for cancer.
    
    Recently, their sons Peter Parker and Eddie Brock, Jr. discovered the final
    remaining sample of the Venom suit-and unleashed the nightmare of Venom.
    
    When Eddie and the Venom suit vanished in a flash of electricity, Peter
    learned one fundamental rule of super hero buisness: "If there's no corpse-the
    guy's alive."
    
    Now,three months later, Peter Parker continues his double life as both High
    school student and Spider-Man. Unbeknownst to Peter, Venom is terrorizing the
    streets of New York once again.

    8-Web Swinging Techniques
    
    Ok, the first thing that you should do is changing the controls. The default
    controls are very confusing and very difficult to master. The default controls
    are as follows:
    
    Web Swinging....Left Mouse Button
    Web Attack...Right Mouse Button
    Web Zip...Left Mouse + Right Mouse (at the same time)
    Jump...Space Bar
    Double Jump...Space Bar + Space Bar
    Up....W
    Down...S
    Left...A
    Right...D
    
    Like I stated earlier, these controls are very difficult to master. You should
    change your controls to these buttons:
    
    Web Swinging....Left Ctrl Button
    Web Attack....Left SHIFT Button
    Web Zip...Left Ctrl + Left SHIFT (at the same time)
    Jump...Space Bar
    Double Jump...Space Bar + Space Bar
    Up....Up button
    Down...Down Button
    Left...Left Button
    Right...Right Button
    
    Please note that these controls are best used for web swinging and may mess up
    your combat controls. Remember to change controls when you fight.
    
    I.Getting a Good Start
    
    The most important thing while web swinging is getting a good start. If you
    are standing on the road then the best way to get some height is to press and
    hold space bar and then press space bar again. Now press the left Ctrl button
    at the maximum height. You will get a decent height most of the time. If you
    are standing on top of a roof, then look for a nearby tall building and double
    jump towards it. Press Left Ctrl button when you are midway in the jump. If
    there is no tall building nearby then web zipping might be a good idea to get
    some height.
    
    II.The First Swing also Determines the Last
    
    After getting some height, your first swing is the most important one. Do it
    cleanly and you will end up web swinging smoothly, do it rough and you may
    have to restart. The best time to press the left Ctrl button is determined by
    the player himself. I found the best time to press the web swing button at
    some distance away from the building. After you shoot out a web, keep the left
    Ctrl button pressed, don't let go of it. REMEMBER that the navigation controls
    help you a lot. Use them to aim away from the building. When you reach the
    top of your swing, press jump and then jump again to gain some more height and
    swing towards the nearest building. Keep repeating and you will steadily gain
    height and speed.
    
    III.Maintaining Height and Speed
    
    Remember that your web zipping ability is NOT useless. In fact, it is necessary
    for you to master it in order to swing smoothly. The city is made up of tall as
    well as small buildings and they are randomly placed. Trying to web swing on a
    small building is completely useless. ALWAYS be prepared to web zip if you see
    a small building up ahead. The best time to press the web zip buttons is when
    you are falling down and you are almost at the same level of the roof of the
    building. The web zipping ability not only maintains your momentum but also
    gives you some height as well. You can also use your web zipping ability to
    reach for the nearest building when you unexpectedly encounter an empty garden
    etc.
    
    IV.Speedy But Risky Swinging
    
    I found this technique useful at times when I wanted to web swing quickly after
    falling to ground level but did not have the time to gain height and speed.
    Basically all you do is press double jump to gain some height and then keep
    pressing the web swinging button again and again while maintaining a rough
    control on the navigation. This method will some times give you enough time
    to cover up in a race for example. However, be vary that this technique is
    NOT useful at all times. Its up to the player to determine which time is the
    best to use it according to the surroundings. Generally, you should use this
    technique if tall buildings are nearby. Try to avoid the ground level obstacles
    like bill boards and poles etc when applying this technique.
    
    V.Jumping to Switch Routes
    
    There will be many times when you have to change routes. For example, you are
    swinging smoothly in a straight line and all of a sudden you have to swing
    left. Instead of aiming the swing towards the left, it's best to press double
    jump and use the navigation controls to aim left and then web swing in that
    direction. Remember to web zip in case there are small buildings that way.
    Be careful about the poles, bill boards etc you may encounter.
    
    VI.What if I get Hit?
    
    While web swinging, if your swing ends up straight into a bill board then
    instead of falling to the ground and restarting, it's best to keep the left
    Ctrl button pressed and double jump. Use your navigation controls to aim for
    the center of the road and press the web swing button again.
    
    VII.Final Word
    
    The web swinging in this game is a little hard compared to the previous game.
    I would advise you to spend at least one-two hours practicing web swinging
    before getting along with the game.
    
    VIII.PC/Console Differences
    
    Although I am sure there must be some differences, the basic hints/tips still
    apply to the console versions as well. Since I DONT have the console version,
    I cannot help you with it. But you can still send me strategies about the
    console versions along side the PC version, I will readily accept them as
    long as they make sense.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    9-City Events
    
    These are the missions which are not connected to the main missions but are
    necessary to do in order to progress the game. Most of these missions show up
    as a red dot on the in-game map. The races are shown as a purple dot.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1.Injured People
    
    Every now and then you will encounter injured people. Go near them and press F
    to pick them up. Now swing them over to the hospistal in time.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2.Hanging People
    
    At times you will have to help people who are hanging from a building top.
    Crawl near the person in time, pick him up and put him down safely.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3.People Being Mugged
    
    Every now and then you will encounter a person being mugged. Just take out
    all the attackers and return whatever they were trying to steal.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4.Police Need Help
    
    The police are being fired upon, land down and take out all attackers.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5.Burglary
    
    This will be a group of people (4 at least) trying to rob some thing. Take
    them all out via the usual methods.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    6.Someone's Robbing an Armored Car
    
    Same as a burglary, except this time they are trying there luck on an armored
    car. Take them out via the usual methods.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7.Gangsters at War
    
    This will be opposite gang members battling each other. Mop up any survivor.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    8.Car Chases
    
    The criminal's are escaping in a car. Land on it and keep beating it they
    come out. Watch out for the bullets. Take them out when they exit the vehicle.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    9.Car Driver gone Nuts
    
    Some driver goes crazy and begins to drive like an idiot. Try to calm him
    down, BY BEATING his car.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    10.Shocker and Boomerang
    
    You will encounter shocker and boomerang some times. Both are very easy to
    defeat. They are not bosses. Consider them as thugs with some crazy equipment.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    11.Combat Tours
    
    These are tours around the different gang territories beating up various
    gang members. You usually have to fight at least 4 groups of gangsters at
    different places before the combat tour ends. They are shown as purple dots on
    the map. The purple HALO has a fist drawn inside it. They increase your health
    with each successfull tour.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    12.Trick Races
    
    These are races pointed by purple dots on your map. The purple HALO has a
    sprinter drawn inside it. I recommend you to try these races as the more you
    try, the more skilled you will become at web swinging.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    13.Human Torch Races
    
    You have to complete five trick races to be able to challenge the human torch.
    He will be at the Baxter Building. Each race is harder then the previous one
    but you get a web swing speed upgrade with each succesfull race, so you might
    wanna try these.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    14.Tokens
    
    Well these are not city events but its best if you find them outside the
    story missions. Collecting these tokens unlocks various rewards. There are
    secret tokens, land scape tokens and comic cover tokens. All three have their
    own rewards and should be done if you have free time.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    10-Walkthrough
    
    Remember that although this FAQ was written for the PC version, it can still
    be used for the console versions.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    I.Boss Fight: Venom
    
    You start the game with a boss fight against Venom. This is very easy boss
    fight. Just go near him, puch/kick and jump away. Remember to double jump
    when your spider-sense warns you. You will get a message to lead him out of
    the football field, do it and the battle will shift to the streets.
    
    Here Venom will try to absorb you. Rapidly press the web attack and web swing
    buttons to break free. Repeat the previous tactics about attacking him while
    avoiding the electricity surging out of the damaged wires. Keep attacking
    him until a cut-scene starts.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    II.Time For A Workout
    
    You get control of Peter again. You have to follow the path to his home. You
    cannot web swing right now since you DONT have your web shooters. Jump all
    the way to his home for a cut-scene. Now you have to web swing to a the
    location where Mary Jane is i-e an abandoned warehouse. Cut-scene. Now you
    get to fight the Shocker.
    
    Boss Fight: Shocker
    
    This is a very easy battle. You cannot even call it a boss battle. Just use
    your web attack to web up his shock units (on his wrists) and he will end up
    shocking himself.
    
    You now have to new marker. Swing your way to it. Help the lady by taking out
    the thugs. You now have another location to go to. Swing your way to it for a
    cut-scene with the Human Torch. You now have to race him. This is a pretty
    easy race. If you can't swing properly then read my section on Web Swinging
    techniques for more information. Remember to web zip where required. Win
    the race to get swing speed upgrade 2.
    
    If a green dot comes on the map, you have completed all goals and can now
    progress the story, if that's the case then swing towards the green dot. If you
    don't see any dot then some thing is left. Check the city events menu in the
    pause menu to see what you are missing and complete it. Anyhow, get to green
    marker for a cut-scene.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    III.Venom
    
    You get control of venom. Follow the onscreen instructions about controlling
    venom. Use the locomotion jump to get around. When you get to thugs, the
    best attack against them would be the tentacles. Take them out and proceed you
    see a kid with a baloon. You are introduced to the feeding system. Absorb
    the kid and follow the marker until you get a message to throw a motor cycle.
    Do it for a cut-scene.
    
    Boss Fight: Wolverine
    
    This fight can be slightly difficult. You probably already know that Wolverine
    is an expert in close quarter combats, so DONT go near him to attack. Instead
    keep using your tentacle attack on him all the time. Remember to feed on the
    nearby humans if you run low on health. DONT even think about feeding on
    wolverine since he will claw out of you. Very soon a small mini-game will
    start. If you win, you will throw wolverine through a wall. If you lose he will
    throw you through a wall. Whatever happens, the fight shifts to a dojo. Just
    keep using your tentacle attack on wolverine until you win.

    IV.Enter R.H.I.N.O
    
    Complete any city goals you have to progress the story.
    
    Watch the cut-scene. Swing through the marker to see an injured man. Grab him
    and drop him near the ambulance behind you. Now you have to save the owner of
    the store. Go near him and press the Grab button to start a mini-game. You have
    to keep the pointer in the green section. Win the mini-game and go after the
    guys who were robing him. Take them out. Continue to swing forward and you will
    see a women trapped under a car. Help her by winning the mini-game and then
    pick her upand drop her near the ambulance. Now have to take the car out of
    the subway. Win the mini-game to do so and swing forward for a cut-scene.
    
    You have to chase after R.H.I.N.O. He is not that hard, keep an eye on the
    meter. He will throw a car into a building. Save the man who is hanging by
    crawling near him and grabbing him. Drop him near the ambulance and swing
    forward. You will have to help the police beat up the thugs on the way.
    Continue for a cut-scene.
    
    Boss Fight: R.H.I.N.O
    
    The boss fight has two parts. The first part takes place near the construction
    site. You see him trying to lift a feul tank type of thing. You can let him do
    that. You only have a couple of seconds. You have to get on his back. Press
    jump and then the grab button to get on his back. Punch him a couple of times
    and jump off. Run towards the wet cement and stand on it. Wait for him to do
    his punch and jump away. He will be stuck. Now near the crane and press the
    F button (grab) for a cut-scene.
    
    You have to chase after him. He will be in a parking lot. You have to jump a
    lot to so be prepared. He will send out shock waves along side throwing cars
    at you. Jump away from all of them. Very soon you will get a notification
    telling you that it's safe to get on his back. Carefully jump and get on his
    back. Land 5 punches and jump away. If you stay on it too long, he will damage
    you when he falls on his back. After he falls on his back he will do a series
    of attacks. He will give off a mega shock wave. After that he will charge at
    you and do two mega punches followed by normal shock waves. Dont try to get on
    his back until you get a notification saying it's safe to do so. Repeat the
    previous strategy. When only 3 brackets of his life are left, he will begin
    to charge at you all the time. Guide him towards a wall and jump out of the
    way. Keep repeating until he falls down. Attack him till his life-bar ends
    completely for a cut-scene.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    V.Venom Again
    
    You get control of venom again. This time silver sable is after you. Well not
    exactly her, but her small army. In this mission you have to just run around
    the city taking care of her mercenaries. Just use your locomotion jump and
    tentacle zips to follow the arrow. You have to take out almost 10 groups of
    mercenaries at different parts of the city. The best attack against them is
    feeding on them. Yes, ignore everything else and just feed, feed and feed. This
    way your health will stay up as well. But if the going gets a little too tough
    then throwing a car is a very good alternative. Just keep feeding and going
    for the next batch of mercenaries until a cut-scene starts.

    VI.Spider Vs Alien
    
    Complete any city goals you have before continuing.
    
    Watch the cut-scene.
    
    Boss Fight: Venom
    
    This fight is pretty easy if you know what you are doing. DONT stay too close
    to venom otherwise you suffer from a headache and you are left vulnerable for
    a small period of time. Venom makes maximum use of that time. Plus if you
    stay near him for too long, he will try to absorb you. Win the mini-game to
    get out if thats the case. All you do is use aerial attacks. Press Double jump
    and then press the kick button twice and spidey will automatically do a double
    kick on Venom, back off after that and keep repeating this strategy until you
    win the fight. Cut-scene.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    VII.Ewww, whats that?
    
    Complete all city goals to proceed the story.
    
    Swing all the way home for a cut-scene.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    VIII.Enter Electro
    
    Complete all city goals to proceed.
    
    You have to chase after Electro. Watch out at the start off the race as he will
    give off a small electric charge. Jump to avoid it. During the race he will
    give off massive electric discharges. This is a huge ball of electricity which
    will not only damage you but throw you back. Normally when he is hovering at a
    particular place he is about to give off the huge electric charge so get as
    far away as possible. Keep using you super locomotion jump to scale buildings
    in one jump. Keep up with him. When he says "Going Up", he will go a 200 feet
    above, when he says "Reaching top floor" he is descending. Follow his path and
    be vary of his sudden path changes. This chase can be a little tough but you
    should be able to get it done within 8-9 retries.
    
    Boss Fight: Electro
    
    This fight is divided into two parts. In the first part Electro is very easy.
    He has only three attacks right now. His first attack will be the usual bolt
    of electricity which is easy to dodge and does minor damage. His second attack
    is his massive electric discharge. Jump away when you see him recharging. His
    third attack is not on you but on spider-man. If you stray too far, he will
    begin to fry spider-man which is bad as he is yours. In this first phase just
    keep wacking him being vary of his occasional attack until a cut-scene starts
    in which he absorbs a lot of energy and turns blue. This part is a little
    tough. The first thing you should do is take out as many electrical bill boards
    as you can. Either throw cars at them or jump and punch into them. Be vary if
    you stray too far he might begin to fry spider-man.
    
    After you have taken care of all the signs, start throwing cars at him. He will
    dodge a couple but will get hit eventually. He usually dodges the first 3 or 4
    and gets hit by the next. Now he is temporarily vulnerable (2 seconds), either
    throw a car at him or punch him. He will turn blue again. Keep repeating this
    and if you took down most of the electrical signs, he WONT have anything to
    recharge with and you can continue attacking him. Keep at it till he falls.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    IX.Weird Suits are the Latest Fashion
    
    Complete all city goals you have.
    
    Watch the cut-scene. You have to chase beetle. This chase is easier then the
    chase against Electro. Swing after him and very soon you will see a cut-scene
    in which he damages the tunnel and two people are caught under it. Swing to
    them and take them to the ambulance a little behind you one by one. They are
    two of them. Intead of going through the tunnel, swing over it and and follow
    the path swinging from the buildings towards the Queensborough Bridge and swing
    all the way under it to the other side and resume the chase. Tail him and you
    will see another cut-scene in which he flies through a window setting the
    interior on fire. You need to save that women so swing over to her, grab
    her and drop her near the ambulance. Resume the chase. He will try to block
    your path by throwing some type of barriers in your way. Either swing over or
    web zip them and continue the chase until a cut-scene starts. He damages a
    car and three people are stuck in it. Free all three people in the car and
    continue the chase avoiding his obstacles until a cut-scene starts. You have
    to chase him again. Avoid all obstacles and keep at it until the chase ends.
    
    Boss Fight: The Beetle
    
    This is a pretty easy boss fight. You have two floors to place the fight on.
    Both floors are okay for the battle. He has four attacks. He will fire laser
    beam at you, which is easy to dodge. He will throw a type of laser grenade
    which is a little tough to avoid. He will swoop down at you from mid-air, this
    is easy to avoid. And he has a massive laser attack similar to Electro's
    massive electric discharge although this one is easy to avoid. All you have to
    do is wait for him swoop at you, dodge, press double jump and then press the
    kick button twice to attack him and then jump away. That's it. Keep repeating
    this and you will be done with him in no time. When he left is with only 1/3 of
    his health, he just dissapears.

    X.Big Mistake
    
    Complete any city goals you have.
    
    Boss Fight: Silver Sable
    
    Venom goes out of control and you know have to fight silver sable. She is very
    easy. She may have plently of agility and training but she is still a human
    and weak. Just use your tentacle attack on her most of time jumping away when
    she takes out her gun. You should only need to feed on one human through out
    the fight. Just keep attacking her, you can also throw cars at her for extra
    damage. Take her down for a cut-scene.
    
    You know have to escape Silver Sable's men. This is four phase escape. In the
    first part its just her men. Keep feeding on them. Dont attack them. Just feed
    and feed until you get a message to make a run for it. Jump and jump and jump
    all the way to the green marker for a cut-scene. Now helicopters join the
    chase. You have to feed/take out atleast 10-15 more of Silver Sable's men while
    the helicopter attacks you. Just keep feeding and jumping until you get a
    message to make a run for it. Again ignore everything and jump and jump all
    the way to the green marker for a cut-scene. One chopper down...more to go.
    In this phase feed/take out another 10-15 of her men while avoiding the chopper
    and then make a run for the green marker. This is the last phase. Jump down
    some more of her men and run for the green marker for a cut-scene.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    XI.Listen To Advise
    
    Complete any city goals you have.
    
    You now have to chase the green goblin. He is very easy to tail around. Just
    keep swinging from building to building watching out for his occasional
    fire-ball. Whenever your spider-sense tingles,double jump in any direction.
    He usually throws two fire balls so double jump twice. Keep following him
    and after some time he will drop a billboard and there are three people trapped
    under it. Go to each one and win the mini-game to lift it up. While you are
    doing it he will chuck fire-balls at you. Nothing can be done about it so just
    hurry and then keep chasing him until a cut-scene starts.
    
    Boss Fight: Green Goblin
    
    This fight may look hard at first but its fairly easy. While Goblin is on
    fire you CANT hurt him. He has a couple of attacks. He will thow three fire
    balls at you, one at a time, they are easy to dodge as you just have to jump
    out of the way. His second attack will be trying to jump on you, this is also
    easy to dodge by jumping in the opposite direction. His third attack is a
    pair of fireballs at the same time. This is a little tough to avoid. The best
    way to avoid these is jumping the first one and then pressing the web swing
    button to avoid the second one. The goblin will now be fatigued. This is your
    chance. Land near him and keep attacking him till he regains his fire. Repeat
    this strategy until you finish half of his health for a cut-scene.
    
    In this phase of the fight the goblins attacks are changed. His still has his
    fire balls so jump out of the way. He will try to jump on you three times in
    succesion so be quick with the jump button. Now he will stand for one second
    as if mustering all his strength into a single flame and try to jump on you.
    JUMP away when he has almost landed as he will now give off a massive flame
    discharge similar to Electro's massive electricity discharge. The goblin will
    now be fatigued so keep attacking him until he regains his fire. Repeat this
    strategy until you win.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    XII.The most Wanted Guy (or alien) in Manhattan
    
    Complete any city goals you have.
    
    You have to chase after beetle. This is a very easy chase since you are venom
    and you locomotion jump covers large distances plus beetle flies slowly.
    Anyhow, keep chasing beetle from roof to roof watching out for his occasional
    attack until you see a cut-scene. This was one of the easiest chases in the
    game.
    
    Boss Fight: The Beetle
    
    This is a difficult boss fight. It is also divided into two phases. The first
    phase takes place inside a warehouse. In this area he will fly around dropping
    laser bombs at you. Keep jumping to avoid them. Every now and then he stand
    still at some place and fire lasers at you. Take a locomotion jump and try to
    land near him like the goblin used to land near you. Start attaking him with
    your tentacles immediately. He will begin to fly again. Sometimes he will take
    out red coloured laser swords and will fly around and taken a sudden lunge at
    you. This is the ideal time to attack him. Carefully watch him and just when
    he is about to swiftly move towards you, start your tentacle attack and keep
    attacking him until he flies away. Repeat the above strategy until his life
    reduces to 50% and a cut-scene starts.
    
    This is phase two of the fight and is even difficult then the previous. Watch
    out for the pits here as they are very damaging. He is a fairly simple pattern
    of attacks. He will go to any of the corners and do a laser attack covering all
    the area. Watch him carefully and when he goes to the repective corner, use
    your locomotion jump to jump straight into the field and slide down. Quick do
    a tentacle attack on him while AVOIDING the pit. Repeat the above pattern 3-4
    times and he will change attacks. He will now either take out his laser swords,
    do a massive laser discharge or a super laser sweep. If he takes out the laser
    sword then tentacle attack him when he tries to swing into you, if he does a
    massive laser discharge, jump out of the way and then attack, if he does the
    super laser sweep, watch out and jump towards his back and do either a tentacle
    attack or a claw attack. Repeat the above strategy until you win.

    XIII.Stronger Then a Very Large Horse
    
    Complete any city goals you have.
    
    
    Boss Fight: Silver Sable
    
    This is a fairly hard fight considering you dont have your web-shooters. You
    will only do one attack through out the whole fight and that's double jumping
    and then pressing the kick button twice. Back off after that attack and repeat.
    You should start by taking out silver sable's men. Now focus all your attention
    on her being extra cautious when she uses her gun. Keep attacking her and after
    some time, more of her men will attack. Take out all four of them first, DONOT
    ignore them as their gun shots WILL damage you. Focus all your attention on
    silver sable after that and watch the cut-scene when only 1/3 of her life bar
    is left.
    
    You now have to save the people. Start by going to the car that has nearly
    fallen off. Silver Sable will help you. Win the mini-game twice. Now go to
    the car behind you and save the person. Now wall crawl all the way to falling
    man and take him. Drop him down and last of all, go towards the car silver
    sable is standing near and win the mini-game. Watch the cut-scene. First you
    get to fight her, now you have to save her!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    XIV.A Super Hero's Work is Never Done
    
    You have to chase after Venom. This is the toughest chase of the whole game.
    You've played with venom plenty of times and you know he moves using the
    locomotion jump which is like thrice as fast as your web swinging. Plus he
    will be on top of rooftops while you will be swinging so you dont actually
    get to see him and you have to rely on your in-game map. Just keep following
    him making best use of your web swinging abilities. It would be helpful if
    you have swing speed upgrade 3 or greater (win races against human torch).
    Just keep trying until you end up winning. Dont be surprised if it takes you
    more then 15 retries to beat him because it took me 18.
    
    Boss Fight: Venom
    
    You get to fight Venom again. Fighting against Venom should be very easy for
    you by now. He has all his previous attacks with one addition. He will know
    throw cars at you. Jump away to avoid. Remember you still cant stay too close
    to venom for long periods of time. Just use one attack on him all the time
    and that is double jumping and then pressing the kick button twice. Back off
    after that and keep repeating the above strategy until you win. Oh! and venom
    ignores Silver Sable most of the time so no need to worry about her.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    XV.As If One Symbiote Wasn't Enough
    
    Boss Fight: Carnage
    
    Prepare for one long and hectic battle. You start in a  small room. He has
    four attacks some really hurt. He has a claw attack similar some what to yours
    but avoidable. His major attack is when he screams.Jump away immediately
    because he will do a massive tentacle attack just like all other massive
    attacks you have faced. He will also zip towards you and attack so jump when
    he does. He will also try to jump on you and try to attack you with his
    tentacles, jump away. The best technique against carnage will be attacking him
    2-3 times via your tentacles and then backing off while avoiding his attacks.
    You should also throw carnage if you need to. He will eventually escape through
    a door and start regaining health.
    
    Win the mini-game to get through and see him escape yet again. Win another
    mini-game and go through. Remember to feed on as many humans as you like but
    make sure you throw carnage before you do it otherwise he will attack you
    continously. He has a new set of moves. He has a long range grab. A little
    tough of avoid. He can tentacle attack similar to yours. Plus if you leave him
    alone he will automatically heal some of his health back. Just keep the
    pressure on him attacking whenever there is an opening. Throw all types of
    objects at him. Remember to throw him before feeding on people. Eventually
    you will win. Watch the cut-scene.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    XVI.Time for The Truth To Come Out
    
    Boss Fight: Venom
    
    
    This is going to be a difficult fight. Venom will try to destroy the helicopter
    and you have to stop him. Since he has completely absorbed all particles, you
    dont have to worry about any headaches affecting you. DONT jump near the
    blades of the helicopter as you will suffer major damage by it's blades. Please
    note that when Venom is attacking the helicopter, he is vulnerable to your
    attacks so try to land as many punches and kicks on him before he replies back.
    Dont try to jump when near the helicopter. When he is attacking you, you have
    to attack him when he roars and then BACK OFF immedieately. If you fall off,
    then swing back up. When you reduce his health to 1/3, phase 2 of the fight
    begins.
    
    This part is more difficult due to lack of space to move around. Be careful
    about the blades of the helicopter and keep repeating the previous strategy.
    If the going really gets tough then back off enough so that he focuses his
    attention on the helicopter and then immediately attack him while he is
    vulnerable. You will win eventually.

    13-My Review Of The Game
    
    Ultimate Spider-Man is the game based on the ultimate comics, which were
    started back in 2000. Ultimate Spider-Man was one of the most hyped comic
    book based game this year, followed by X-men Legends 2. Does it live up to
    the hype?
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Game-Play:
    
    7.5/10
    
    There are many things to talk about, lets start with the swinging mechanism.
    Sadly, the swinging in ultimate spider-man is NOT as fun as it was in
    Spider-Man 2. You don't have any swing mode options this time and the default
    mode is not very enjoyable. You don't have much control of your webbing any
    more. Plus, lack of sky scrappers in this game makes swinging somewhat more
    difficult. However, all is not lost and after an hour's practice, you get
    the hang of it. Next up is the combat; the combat in this game is not as
    varied as it was in Spider-Man 2. You have very few combos up your sleeve
    plus you can take down most normal enemies using the same button pattern.
    The boss fights and chase sequences of this game are very challenging and
    enjoyable. The most hyped thing about this game was the ability to play as
    Venom. The game does not disappoint, as the Venom levels are the most fun
    parts of the game. Venom controls are completely different from Spider-Man.
    While spider-man uses his agility and web shooters to move around, Venom
    relies on pure strength, leaping from one building to another cover huge
    distances. Plus, the game also features a very cool feeding system. Since
    the venom suit is feeding on Eddie, you have to absorb energy from human
    hosts every now and then in order to keep your health up. Fortunately,
    feeding is not only easy but also fun. Sadly, the combat sequences of Venom
    don't offer much variety and is basically button mashing sequences. The
    city events are pretty similar to that of Spider-Man 2 and they get boring
    after a while because stopping a robbery and stopping a mugging is one and
    the same thing. The game-play could have used more tuning.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Graphics:
    
    8/10
    
    The game features cell-shaded graphics to give a comical look to the game.
    The developers succeed to a large exent as the cut-scenes and city looks
    very good. However, lack of sky scrappers and low detail hamper the
    experience somewhat.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Audio:
    
    8/10
    
    The game features great audio. The sound effects of webbing coming out of the
    web shooters and Venom's growling are very well done. Same goes for most
    other sound effects. The voice acting of this game is it's best part. All
    the characters have been expertly handled and the dialogue features many
    trademark one-liners.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Story:
    
    9/10
    
    Ultimate Spider-Man features a very original story that was specially created
    for this game. The father's of Peter and Eddie were working on a suit that
    not only cured cancer but also enhanced the strength and other abilities of
    the person wearing it. Unfortunately, the company owner sees the suit more
    of a weapon then a cure and arranges for both scientists to be killed in a
    "plane crash". Years later their sons (once friends) meet again and see
    their inheritance, the Venom suit. This leads to a series of events in
    which the Venom suit is first worn by Peter and then Eddie after which the
    suit completely takes control over Eddie. The story revolves around finding
    the truth behind their father's death and making a cure for Eddie.

    Replay Value:
    
    6/10
    
    The game features very little replay value. Sure you can play as Venom after
    completing the game but it becomes boring after an hour or so.
