Final Breakdown


It's sad when a promising game is torpedoed by uninspired gameplay and level design, but it happens. Hopefully, Beenox will learn from their mistakes on this one.


The limits of Beenox's engine are pushed, pushed, and pushed some more - some of the visuals are absolutely awe-inspiring. Sadly, there are limits to what it can do when facing uninspired levels that lack the capacity to show off nearly as well as the character designs do.

Sound and Music:

A great voice acting cast turns the dialogue on its head, offering up some great comedic moments if you can get to them. Between two solid Spider-man actors and Val Kilmer for a major villain, there's a lot here to enjoy.


I can't really offer up more on difficulty - you're looking at a corridor running button-masher, with the occasional boss fight.

Controls and Interface:

The upgrades to the characters from the previous Spider-Man title are nice, but it's all in a vacuum; level design and endless mooks make for a basic button masher.


Rent it, play it, and it goes back. Nothing really more to say - Beenox phoned this one in, and it shows.
