Spidey at his best. This game has amazing cartoonish graphics and tremendous gameplay. This game is a perfect sandbox type game. Whether your swinging on your webs through a comic book version of New York City or beating up a cartoon burglar, nothing can stop the outstanding work of this game. One of my favorite features is after you beat the game you can play as Venom. With Venom you can throw cars, leap over buildings, and prey on innocent civilians. A great game that I strongly recommend.
Fun to play
Well I just got the game because my cousin had it and its a really great game it has all the characters in the movie and more the even have x-men characters and fantastic four characters you should really buy it if your really into spider-man
when i first started playing ultimate spiderman i thought it was just going to be the same as spiderman2 but boy i was wrong you can play as spiderman and venom. for spiderman you can freely explore new york city while battling bankrobbers and thugs in what they call a combat tour. you can also race against johnny storm or just race on your own. you also have to save citizens from falling of roofs and stuff like that. and you get to collect secret tokens around new york. once you've beaten enough of these city goals you can advance to the next story mission. for venom you can jump huge distances and feed on people to get strength. you also have to face challenges of your own as venom such as races and boss fights. once when you collect enough tokens you can unlock new costumes. so what are you doing get a copy of ultimate spiderman!
BEST SPIDER-MAN GAME EVER!!!!!!
This is the best Spider-Man game I have ever played in my entire life, just tell me what's not to like, your able to play as both Spider-Man and Venom, Play levels that were based on the comic book storyline, the graphics are so good that it seems like the actual Comic Book. The gameplay with Spider-Man is similar to that of Spider-Man 2, it's just a little different, I have a different version of the game, it's the "Limited Edition" the difference is thart it has some extra videos, I am lucky, Anyway it's just like the commercial said "Save the city as Spider-Man, or Terrorize it as Venom". By the way Venom's gameplay is different from Spider-Man's. Venom can absorb people's life energy for health, he can attack with his claws or tentacle.
Great looking but boring
This game definitely looks great with the cell shaded graphics and the comic panel inspired design. More marvel games should try and adopt this design; the comic panel storytelling actually makes it more exciting and eye catching. The voice acting and sounds also hold up so that the experience is very similar to watching a high quality Saturday cartoon. Unfortunately the rest of the game isn't as innovative or exciting as the graphics. You get to swing around New York City but there isn't much to do. There are races that you can do - making you swing from checkpoint to checkpoint. There are combat missions that make you swing from place to place to take down groups of thugs. Then there are the story missions which have you chase down bad guys and then confront them in boss battles. For some dumb reason though (probably to stretch out the length of the game), the story missions always have you running around to the opposite side of town. You also get to play as venom but his missions are boring and turns it into a straight out button mashing beat 'em up.
This is a great game for any kind of gamer.
Though I never got to actually own this game I borrowed it and instantly I loved it. I wish I could have finished it as it is a surprising game. It may start off weird and confusing but as you keep playing you have no regrets for buying this game.
pretty cool game
this game was awesome! ive unlocked all the suits but black suit. over all, the bosses were hard and the free roaming was cool so i'd give this game two thumbs up.
FREE ROAM + SPIDER-MAN = AWSOME!!!!
This game is quite possibly the best Spider-Man game EVER! Web slinging controls are so realistic and easy! I would recommend this game to anyone, from a Hardcore Spider-Man fan, to anyone else! You can explore all of New York, including Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square and EVEN Peter Parker's high-school football field. Plus you can unlock character bios, screenshots and different costumes for spidey. You can even play as Venom!
The Ultimate Experience
I loved getting to play as High School Peter looking like he was in High School! The story was very interesting and the bosses were a challenge. I also enjoyed free-roaming as Venom causing pain and destruction throughout New York City and Queens. lol. Web swinging had a different feel. Web zipping is my preferred way to travel when in Queens. Definitely worth the buy!
A big hit to me
This game was perfect. awesome how you can be good and evil and unlock many costumes. people say it has bad graphics but, seriously guys, its based on a COMIC, it has comic- like graphics, what do you expect, Batman Arkham City?
