Rated 7 out of 10 by thethirdelric The Spider Gets Squashed
join Peter Parker aka Spider-Man as he webs through the baddies of New York City fighting for justice and the truth about his parents death. while i LOVE Spider-Man this game was a disappointment to me, they made Spider-Man sound like a 12 year old kid, and i know he is supposed to be dorky, but come on hes not that bad by a long shot. the web swinging takes a little bit to get used to, you'll spend the first few minutes of the game slamming into buildings trying to get the geometry's of web swinging down. the combat can be kind of awkward and usually the best way the beat down your opponent is to jump you and do a flying attack.
the story shifts between spider-man and venom which is very entertaining, and stars man of your marvel favorites, nick fury, silver sable, the beetle, green goblin, carnage (with a twist), and the ever famous rhino.
now while it may seem i was bad talking the game it still is very fun and i would recommend it to spider-man fans and anyone who wants to web swinging around a giant New York.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Venom002 Good/Bad
Well, Ultimate Spider-Man Is Fun At The Start, When You Web Swing Your Like WOOHOO ! but after a while the web swinging gets boring, when you play through-out the game its okay, a few main problems, 1. no mega jump: in spiderman 2 i REALLY enjoyed jumping and swinging around on my web line through the city, but ultimate spiderman doesnt have that, plus peter sounds like hes 12. 2. Bad Combat , All you can do is web your enimies and punch and kick up to five times, once again in spider-man 2 you can grab an enimie and swing him around in circles with your web, plus in spiderman 2 you can hang them on lamp posts and use them as a teaher ball, but in ultimate you can only hit em once b4 they fall, 3. WEB SWINGING: in ultimate spiderman he just hangs on the web no charge jumps on the web, no putting the web line between your legs to gain more speed, no swinging upgrades, witch you can all do in spider-man 2, and spider-man 3 ! The Movie games were the best, the only non movie spiderman games i liked weere spiderman shattered dimensions, ultimate alliance, and Friend or foe
Rated 9 out of 10 by game happy best game!, seiriously
first off, the animation has a comic twist aswell as a pinch of reality. making it have a logical sense of things. when i first played it, i couldent stop playing the free city roam. i mean, how often do you find a game that lets you climb skyscrapers, jump off, and then string a line automatically and swing to the next one. the combat system is just geinius because for example, there is a streetlight nearby you can do amasing arobics and cacoon a bad guy in a web hanging from the streetlight, therefore makeing it easier so you dont have to fiddle with the guy and then let the cops take care of him, however when night falls, you can fight venom, or take controll of him, and cause catostrofic destruction in the city. aswell as sometimes being other classic marvel heros such as wolverine so alltogether this game provides hours of fun and spidy action. thats why i give it a 9 on a 1-10 scale.
Rated 8 out of 10 by becauseitsgood get it !
I say that because it is awesome. I mean the fact that you can be venom and spider man is just awesome. A down side is the ending, because you beat the game, and then all you get to do is swing around the city and beat the little challenges. A good thing is that when you beat the game you get to switch between venom and spider man any time you want! But this game is only good if your willing to spend the money and then sell it later on. Hey, don't get me wrong, this is a great game, if it wasn't do you think I would be sitting here typing this thing? Any way, any die hard spider man fan would love it, (like me) the graphics aren't the best but I mean its good for Game Cube. The sound is good, and the story line was my favorite, because you get to battle other villains beside venom. All together this is a great game and you should get it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by byden21 About Ultimate Spiderman.
This game is one of the best games on the gamecube. The story is awesome, and how they made the cutscenes comic book style was genius. By also making the game look like it came straight out of the comic was good as well. The sound is great and so are the controls. This game is definitely the most challenging of all the spiderman games on the gamecube. The mini challenges like the races, are pretty easy but get more challenging the further you get. You can also unlock some new spiderman costumes by completing mini challenges. The also added ability to play as venom when you beat the game is a nice touch. The game does have some replay value, but not much. If you're looking for a good spiderman game for the gamecube, this is definitely the one you should choose.
Rated 8 out of 10 by patriotfan1 Okay game.
I got Ultimate Spider-Man because I am a huge fan of the movies and the original comic. In my opinion Spider-Man is the best ficticious superhero out of all the superheros. I got this game because it was a Spider-Man video game. To put the game simple, the controls were easy to remeber and the gamplay fun. However, if you just want to do the main story, it is a very short video game. This game could have been made longer and better. The graphics look like a cartoon which might keep people from buying this game. All in all, unless you are a huge Spider-Man fan, you will not like this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Jobie12 Best Gamecube Spider-Man Game Ever! Cereal!
I just gotta say get this game now! Everything is great about it. free gameplay free missions like challenges and a very good explanation of the story and how it started ,wish there is a number two for wii or xbox 360. i wish! but the only thing tat is frustrating is that you have to do challenges to do a story mission.
P.S. you will get mad!
Fun and Awesome.

Rated 7 out of 10 by bane12 Decent, but not great
I admit, this game was pretty good for a lot of gamers who aren't totally fans of Spider man. Okay, it's not that I don't like this game, it's just that it's way too weird. The Venom levels have varying difficulties so you can play either ridiculously hard levels in the beginning or easy missions in the middle. What I like about this game is that the missions switch between Spider man and Venom which allow for a varied gameplay. I like the feel, but it doesn't have much of a combat system. You just have regular punch combos like press B four times, you might do some fancy kick. The combat for Spider man is one of the main faults. Combat for Venom is great because you can throw around cars, slam people's faces into the ground, or just eat them. The way you move around the levels are similar with Spider man's using his webs while Venom just jumps around. His jumping style is great, but it helps to get around faster if you're chasing someone. The boss missions suck because they are cheap if you're Spider man. Like I said before, he can't really attack and can only jump around all fancy. He can only dodge fancy which is only just jumping around the stage. The lasting appeal is horrible too. After you finish the game, you have nothing. In Spider man 2 the video game, you had these trophies to unlock but there's squat in this. The graphics for this game are pretty good. It makes you feel as if you're in a comic book which is exactly what you want to feel. Overall this is a decent game, but it has a lot of faults and can fall flat when it comes to combat for Spidey. It focuses too much on Venom sometimes I must admit.
