Just Another Average Spider-Man Game.

  • Aug 13, 2007
The SPIDER-MAN 3 game loosely follows the plot of the SPIDER-MAN 3 movie. Harry Osborne as the New Goblin tries to kill Peter/Spider-Man. Venom sneaks into Peter's house and joins itself with his Spidey suit. Flint Marko is turned into Sandman and starts stealing money throughout New York. Eddie Brock gets involved in a serious competitive rivalry with Peter and the game concludes with a massive battle involving four characters with different powers. There are some differences between the general plot of the game and the general plot of the movie, but overall they are very similar. There's also a subplot in the game involving the Lizard. This subplot is almost as long as the regular plot and allows interaction with many more characters.

As far as game play, I was a bit disappointed by SPIDER-MAN 3. You can swing all around New York City, which is really cool. However, there aren't very many maneuvers and combos and Spidey's overall fighting style really suffers because of it. You are able to use the Venom costume and it increases Spider-Man's strength and health, but it can only be used for a limited amount of time. It would have been nice to actually be able to go into some buildings instead of just swinging around them. There's also a fairly long load time between scenes. Normally this isn't too big of a deal, but is annoying when fighting bosses. Most of the actors from the movie lend their voices to the video game and Bruce Campbell once again returns in vocal form as the games narrator.

Overall, the game isn't too bad, but it does seem like it was put together rushed in order to coincide with the release of the film. I realize that the filmmakers want to capitalize on the movie's release date, but they'd probably make more money if they allowed for a little more time on the game's development. The game isn't too difficult for younger and novice players, is a decent game for average gamers, and will probably be frowned upon by master gamers.
