Spider-Man: Web of Shadows
When I saw the trailer for this game, I was excited!! Another superb Spider-Man game!!!! When I learned it was on the PSP and PS2, I was ecstatic! Another superb Spider-Man game for my PSP and PS2!!!! But when I actually started to play, all my hopes dropped. I expected the game to be similar to the console versions. Silly me. What I thought was a legnthy free-roam game was a side scroller beat-em-up game. The side angle view is obviously not a free-roam. Complete opposite. I beat up every baddie I bumped into. Some I can't even continue without clearing each wave of baddies. The graphics are so-so. The voices are sucky and pointless. What I do like is the ability to change into and from the symbiote suit, the ability to actually choose your response, and good help from other heroes and power ups when you're stuck. Definetly not what I expected, but if you're a die-hard Spider-Man fan, like me, this game is worth buying.
not what i expected but it still is good
When I bought this game is I was expecting it to be like the game on the x box or ps3 but it is so much different because it is side view. When I started playing I was disappointed but then I kept on playing and it got much better, The game had ok graphics, the sound is ok, but it is a good challenge and it is really long. I've been playing it for about 2 weeks and it hasn't got old and I'm still playing it (it might be because I'm on the hardest difficulty) it isn't the deepest story in the world but it is still entertaining. It reminds me of one of the spiderman games I had on the N64 except with better graphics, in the end I think that is worth the price because it is a long, fun and challenging game. I bought it on the 360 and it was really fun too. They are both different games and both a lot of fun.
not what i expected
When i heard that this game was on sale i thought that it would be as good as spider man 3 where you can move freely around, but this game is only 2D which is really not that good. this game is really not good , it would have been better if you were able to move around and swing around 3D like in spider man 3. the storyline i guess is the most best part of the game because you get to choose whether you want to talk bad or good or if you want to save people or you can choose not to help them at all. so my suggestion is that you should not really buy this game at all, but you should buy spider man three, when i bought this game and started playing it i knewthat i just wasted my money and so i returned it thats how bad the ame was for me. so DON BUY THIS GAME!
Nice Oldschool 2D Gameplay
Web of Shadows on PSP is a completely different game than the console versions. For PSP it's entirely old school 2D gameplay. It should also be said that the PSP version has a VERY lighthearted atmosphere than the more adult console version. Think more like a saturday morning cartoon type of feeling and your in the ballpark. Now on to the review itself. When it comes to the PSP version there really isn't to much to say. You can switch between the red and black suit at anytime with the press of the select button. Both the red and black suits have different attacks and combos (though each suit has only about 3-4 combos max). While going through the levels you'll run into citizens that will ask you to either help them or just hear them out. Depending on your answers you'll either gain a good or bad reputation to power up both suits and unlock specific attacks for each. Though I have to admit that some of the requests are pretty ridiculous like finding a lost cat or scaring pigeons away (seriously), but like I said before, it's a lighthearted game. Controls are incredibly simple. To web-sling just press the jump button(X) then tap jump again. You can also sling a web to latch on to things by pressing any of the 8 directional pad buttons then pressing the R button. To punch hit the square button and to kick is triangle. To call your friends to help you is the circle button. The graphics are very nice especially on the character models. Spider-Man looks incredibly nice and detailed as well as Venom, Luke Cage, Kraven, etc, while the levels themselves also look really good. Music is partially nonexistent, it has music but it's so low that you'll barely ever notice/hear it. Sound effects and voice acting are good and its nice to know that Spidey's quips and remarks are actually pretty funny. If your interested in Web Of Shadows for the PSP I would definitely pick it up, BUT wait for a price drop. Its in no way a bad game, just an enjoyable old school 2D romp with very nice graphics.
ITS GONNA BE AWESOME!!
This game looks like its gonna rock. I just saw the previews, trailers and game plays and let me tell you, the graphics rock! The way the storyline is fixed is just amazing and the compelling part is the game play. They truly made this game a fun one to jump, hit or swing through town! If you have $** to spend, buy this game! Especially for hardcore fans of Spider-man!
A little disappointed
I thought this was going to be a 3D free-roam game, but I recently found out that was not the case. Looks like this version is going to be a side-scroller. That's a bummer, but it might still be good. The side-scrolling Spider-man games for the DS have been fun. Maybe a side-scrolling game for the PSP won't be so bad.
It Looks To Be Incredible!
Couple months back I was looking around on a gaming website and came across a trailer for, SpiderMan Web of Shadows. Intrigued, I watched it and was simply amazed. Seriously. Go onto YouTube and watch some previews for this game, you WILL be amazed. The combat system looks EXTREMELY entertaining and cool, and as this game isnt going to follow any movie, they seem to have been able to do whatever they wanted to do with the story, and they decided to add in other Marvel characters, like Wolverine for example. This game is just bound to be awesome, Im serious, the combat looks that good.
Not much to say about this game other than it is fairly good...When i first heard about this game coming to the psp, i expected to swing through New York like in Spiderman 3 for the psp, but i should have known that the entire game is played on a sideways view...You could still swing on buildings and stuff, but you still have that annoying side view. This game should let you swing freely...This is also a Beat-Em-Up game, meaning that it is basically what you do everytime you encounter a "Bad" guy as you make your way to your next destination...There really is no other way to avoid these guys so you will most likely end up beating up everybody you encounter...What i like about this game is that you choose which path you want to take...You also have the freedom to switch from Red Spiderman to Black whenever you want, I found myself fighting with Black Spidey most of the time because his punches are stronger...Every time you talk to somebody who needs Spidey's help, you get 3 options of what your answer will be...One answer is a "Mean" response which is Black Spidey talkin, another is a "Nice" response which is Red Spidey talkin, the other i guess is a neutral response, however you answer is the path you want to play the rest of the game...Anywayz, this game is definitely worth buying if you are a fan of Spiderman, good graphics, and i can't really tell you that the storyline is good because that is all based upon what your actions with Spiderman are..Good game
Oh my god
I first found out this game while looking for a new one. When I found out this was the latest spiderman i was intrigued to find out more. The story line...is completely up to you. You choose to protect the city or DESTROY IT. Also the combat system has been improved incredibly, if you go see a video the defending systems, you can customize your attributes just like in Spiderman 3. I've pre-ordered it and it came up to $****. So if you have the money to spend I recommend this game.
WORST GAME EVER
ok so i go in gamestop hoping for the best free roaming game like the ps3 version of this but instead i get a the worst game ever
