Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

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.

Graphics:

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.

Difficulty:

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.

Overall:

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