Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions
I'm going to split this review into four segments, one for each universe.
First off is the Amazing universe, and personally my second to least favorite. It seems as though the whole story to this universe just makes you run back and forth and button-mash. I found it boring. And the only extra costume I liked was the Cosmic, which you either got from pre-ordering the game or buying the DLC. Another flaw is that the fighting and attacking gets old, and in this universe I heard one semi-good joke, and that's it. I do not reccommend playing through his universe first in the segment.
Now I'll be reviewing the Ultimate universe. This was my second favorite universe, because I found humor in it, along with cartoony graphics that I always love seeing. This is a great universe for its middle-ranged difficulty, its over-the-top crazy bosses (think-- Its got Deadpool) and being able to be black-suit Spider-Man. They made this universe like they made the "Ultimate Spider-Man" game-- Beenox, the creators of the game, had said so at E3-- which I found really cool. There's also lots of button-mashing in this universe, too, but the combos are always fun to watch.
Onto my least favorite, the 2099 universe. I found this one very boring. It felt like every level was the same thing over, and over, and over again. I always found pleasure in the freefall segments, but other than that, I found it really repetitive. The boss battles ALWAYS sucked, and getting to the bosses? Equally sucky. At first before I got the game, I was looking forward to this universe, but now I'm glad I'm done with it.
Now, last but not least, the Noir universe! This was by far my favorite. It was in my opinion the hardest, and it had the spirit of the "Batman: Arkham Asylum" game along with it. The voice acting in this universe was definately the best. I loved the element of stealth in this game. I always love stealth games. This universe was (in my complete opinion) what kept this game going. I now wish I hadn't sold it, just for this part of the game. I totally feel that this should get its very own game, and so do many others, including a person I found who made a video with a big long discription of what the game should be like (NOT ME). I'll put the link below, and if I mess up, SO WHAT. Remember to read the discription.
Thank you for reading, and feel free to disagree with whatever I said in this review.
4 Spidermans = Decent Game
When i first got this game i was so excited about playing as 4 different Spidermans, but once i finished the game i see alot of things that keeps this game from being great. The story is really simple and yeah it didn't bother me, but i would have liked to see more events/ cutscenes. I didn't enjoy the Noir levels at all since they are slow and require you to the same thing over and over ( save civilians and sneak behind and attack gang members), and it seems like when im doing something perfect i will eventually mess up and set off an alarm. The other Spiderman levels are filled with fun action packed, button pressing levels and were the highlight of the game. The bosses are very creative and can be easily beaten by following their repetition, and you have 4 bosses for each Spiderman and thats including the final boss. The game is good and all, but i really dont see any reason to replay the story, but you are gonna have a great time playing this game if you're a Spiderman fan like me.
Control: A bit frustrating in the beginning. After completing each level you will get more and more used to it, especially after you purchase more moves as the game goes on. Graphics: Amazing graphics. Each spiderman version has its own unique look and style. My favorite is definitely Noir. Sound: The voices are on key with each character, although all of the spidermen seem to have the corniest lines, which they will repeat over, and over, and over again. Gameplay: Fairly simple. Although the camera angle will get in your way from time to time. Especially when wall climbing. The boss fights are amazing and epic. Story: Simple. It seems like something straight out of a comic book. Extras: The extra costumes and bios are definitely cool. The achievements are near endless and fun to complete. Overall: I definitely would recommend this game to everyone. The game is fun, although frustrating in the beginning as you get used to the controls. The game is not perfect, but definetly entertaining.
best spider man game ever
(the amazing) the classic friendly neighborhood spider man who was bit by a radio active spider. he uses mainly web based combos and is an overall good fighter.(the noir) the darker more serious spider man that was bitten by a magic spider. he has to hunt in the shadows in take people out 1 by 1 sense the R2 button is very sensitive it is hard to just sneak up on people he is also the weakest but he recharges the fastest. he's got a more stealthy approach.(the 2099) he was a test subject that worked for alchemax. he has special things like free falling mode and hyper vision. he's more a speedy fighter.(the ultimate)he got his powers from a test spider from oscorb labs. he's by far the funniest,and the strongest out of all the spider men. one of the best things about this game is that it unlocks levels in sets of 4 so you can do it in any order you want. the one thing i don't like about it is the last boss fight is to easy. either way 4 story's,1 awesome adventure.
Good game, horrible controls and camera
Ok i just beat this game on normal difficulty. Now it was a decent game with cheesy lines and jokes. The problem with this game are the controls. It is very hard to target one enemy at a time because spidey will attack whomever he pretty much wants to. The camera will get in the way most of the time, making it difficult to maneuver him and fight. The best part however are the boss fights and graphics. The boss fights are introduced at the beginning of each level stylistically showing each boss. At one point you will have to have a first person boxing like fight with the boss with dodging sessions. I think it was pretty interesting although a little weird. Some of the bosses are memorable while others are meh. The graphics are cell shaded like crackdown game. Overall, i wouldnt recommend this game to a friend due to the extremely clunky camera and awkward controls.
It's AMAZING, an ULTIMATE experience
Ok, I know my summary says the game is AMAZING and an ULTIMATE experience, but that was because I liked the game and don't have anything really bad to say about it and because it was a pun, those are two universes in the game. The gameplay is fun and funny, the sound is funny, I say the sound is funny because I like the comments Spider-man makes to himself, and the graphics are good. This was definitely the best Spider-man game for PS3, X360, Wii, etc. But I have to say that Batman Arkham Asylum was better, maybe because it was a puzzle game and an action game, but I think you should sooner get B:AA then this. This is still a great game, I loved it, and I'm playing through again. That just goes to show you that the lasting appeal is good too. I also heard that there will be a sequel, looking forward to that. But I'm not exactly sure how that will work out. Great game, not the best superhero game ever, but still AMAZING.
Spider Man Is Back On Track
Spider Man games have been hit and miss recently. I picked this up because I had some trade in credit and wanted to try the four different spider mans. I will say this game shocked me, this was a blast to play and honestly any one could have fun with the different difficulty levels. What will suprise you is that this game stays fun through out and it gives you a lot of variety. The four worlds feel very different and for the most part play different other than fighting mechanics. You can even select which spider man to pick and go through their stage. So you know though this is not an open world game this is level select and the paths are very straight forward. Each level takes about 30 mins to complete and you will probably go back to get unlockables and also level up which is a pretty cool system. You level up by accomplishing mini task during a full mission such as web 10 guys ext. If you ever want to know what you missed you can check by hitting the select button where you can also upgrade and buy new costumes. The only things that holds the game back a some annoying in game bugs(like invisible enemies and it not reading your hit detection) this doesn't take away the fun just makes it a tad bit annoying and the fact that for every really awesome stage you will have to play a stage you don't really want too. So all in all this game is worth a swing and very fun while it last. I hope this review helps you decide if you want to buy it, rent it, or just borrow it from your friend.
Amazing but a little repetitive
The first thing that I have to say is that this is a beautiful game. Probably the best comic book game I have ever seen. Having said that the game is very good. It is a lot of fun and having many spider man to choose from is a great thing. Despite the spider man being very different, their levels are very much the same. You go through the level for a little while, fight the main bad guy once, then he runs and you follow, then he uses his shard and gets more powerful and you fight him again. Also this is a very linear game. Now this doesn't mean that this is a bad game. It is still a lot of fun and there are many great bosses that I don't want to spoil for you. The amazing spider man is pretty much regular spider man and his levels have a very comic book like feel while spider man 2099 is very futuristic and probably my favorite. Ultimate spider man is basically black suit spider man. The oddest of the spider men is spider man noir. His levels are black and white, and he is all about stealth. The extra suits and one-liners make this game funny. Even though this game is repetitive there is a lot of replay value to this game. This is a great game that I would recommend to anybody.
Best Spiderman game ever.
This is one of the best Spiderman games I have played. Some of the games in the past were not that great, but I am going to replay this one again. If you like Spiderman and you would like a great game, you should buy it, plus it is kid friendly.
Are four spider-men better than one?
The answer is yes because spider-man shattered dimensions is one of the best spider-man games ever! In the game you get to play as four spider-men featuring amazing, ultimate, 2099, and noir,each with there own set of moves. The game takes you from level to level fighting enemies and defeating bosses, in one level I had to silently take down enemies to save hostages, in the next I had to quickly web-sling away from a tidal wave coming straight for me, the thrills never let up. But there are also some problems, like the camera during combat and when you're wall-crawling, also the story is pretty lame, in a battle with Mysterio spider-man shatters the tablet of time and space and he needs the help of three other spider-men to help him restore it. Also the gameplay can get repetitive, you fight foes defeat the boss then do that in the next level. But don't let that stop you from playing this amazing game, I highly recommend it.
