Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...
Every one has a dream to be a super hero, I remember back in the day where I watched Power Rangers and I would kill to of have been the red guy with the tyrannosaurus, man he was cool. I had a huge crush on Kimberly as well *growls* Anyway Spiderman is a well known comic series created by "the god" Stan Lee. I doní¢â‚¬™t think he's a god but if I doní¢â‚¬™t say it ill be hacked into by some pimple freaked nerd abusing me. Just kidding.
Spiderman 2 is of course the sequel to the blockbuster hit of 2002 Spiderman which grossed err lots of money. So of course they realised "letí¢â‚¬™s make a sequel! MORE MONEY! MUAHAHAA" mm great idea. But this game is not like the average game Spiderman, this is quite awesome! You actually play a hero, not playing by story line only! You can literally swing around an interactive Manhattan without doing anything with the story! You can even save pedestrians from Robberies and falling from obscene places. My favourite thing to do is climb the Empire State Building, and dive off the top and fall and right before I hit the ground attach to a building and fly up in the air, so much freedom its great!
The storyline follows the movie and some other goodies with Peter Parkers love interest Mary Jane, played by the hotness of Kirsten Dunst even Tobey Maguire plays Spiderman in the game! Very cool indeed!
The graphics are top notch when youí¢â‚¬™re flying through Manhattan, but while running it seems blotchy and abit rushed, the pedestrians have no lip sync! Which means there mouths doní¢â‚¬™t move when they talk? Ití¢â‚¬™s weird, but flying through Manhattan makes you forgets soon.
The game is made with a great concept, FREEDOM! You do what you want in the whole game, its great and the story is terrific and played by the actors in the movie? Top notch game! Well done Activision, you finally made a Spiderman game acceptable but next time, doní¢â‚¬™t rush the graphics.
