Rated 9 out of 10
by TommyK Scary on one side, not so much on the other.
My little brother likes the dark SpiderMan suit side and he gets cranky and pays just about all his focus on the game, but it's like he's not trying. Every time he plays he gets scared and he wants me or one of my two other brothers to come and watch him play. Truly I think parts of it are pretty scary. After defeating Electro, the symbiotes look a bit like zombies. I like that game. Our family got a WII on Christmas Eve and SpiderMan Web of Shadows on Cristmas. If my brother is playing a game just don't tell him what to do. The part with Rhino is just about laugh-out-loud funny. I mean SpiderMan riding Rhino, that's RIDICULOUS!HaHa!I'd say "Go out and get this game!" to everybody, but then people might think that I'm crazy. Anyway, I think the scariest characters are the symbiotes, Venom, and SpiderMan (Black Suit). That would conclude my reveiw.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Black suit Spidey one of the best spider-man games
This game rocks. After spider-man 2 and spider-man 3 this game is the best. First of all i'll start with the challenge. The challenge is good. The little thugs like the kingpin troops and those gang wars are easy to beat but the fact that they all gang up on you in numbers of like 10-15 it makes it more fun and challenging. Also the bosses are pretty challenging because only certain attacks work on them and a lot of attacks don't work. And you have to fight at different levels. Like in the air and even on the ground. The graphics and sound are great to considering it's for the wii but sometimes spidey makes some weird sounds when he gets hit. The length is ok. The best parts are that spidey can do all sorts of sick combos and attacks and they are not really hard to get used to. And finally the plot is awesome. I mean the whole invasion symbiote thing is really sick. And THE MOST AWSOME PART is that you choose the outcome of the story. Overall this is a great game. Buy it.

Spiderman: Web of Shadows is one of the best games I own. It started out a little annoying with a slightly boring plot, but that ended quickly. The only other thing that I dislike about this game, is that the controls on the Wii version are a little hard to get used to and sometimes are bit annoying. Sometimes the Wii even gets the motion you are trying to do a bit confused, but once you tackle them, it is by far, like everyone is saying, the best Spiderman game of the generation, at least. I have even had experience with playing a couple other spiderman games, and still say this is the best. If your at the store and looking for a great superhero game, choose this one. It has extremely good graphics for a Wii game and it is fun to unlock the different spiderman costumes. I also enjoy seeing different marvel heroes come to Spiderman's aid. All in all, this is an awesome game! For anyone who doesn't have this game, go get it right now, and yes that's an order!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Collins Ehh Good But Not Great
Lets face it spiderman games are really starting to get stale. The good news is web of shadows really shows a new variety of gameplay. It is a good game but not without its flaws. Now I'm not gonna talk or review about the horribly awful ps2 or psp version, I'm going to review the more advanced ones. However I feel as if I have to review the wii version. Although it is not as bad as the god awful ps2 and psp version, its not as advanced as the x box 360 version and the ps3 one. First of all the controls are nothing to be proud of in this game they are pretty bad, no not bad but very BAD BAD. I mean they are very unresponsive. Most of it happens when trying to swing or doing air combos. The controls are that tedious I swear. Now you probably think by now that I hate this game but no I liked it, mostly by the multiple choices. It's just wasn't the best they've could've done. Bottom line if your easy going with game controls play it otherwise stay away.
Rated 10 out of 10 by CodGarchomp GO SPIDEY!!!
Nice, very nice. This game is rly fun. The controls at first are hard but after a while u get the hang of it. I love web striking enemys. And the whole 'symbiotes take over New york' thing was great. SPOILER ALERT!!! IF U DONT WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE FINAL BOSS IS, SKIP THIS BIT!!! The final boss Venomzilla was rly cool but easy to beat. I think marvel and activision worked rly hard on that boss. OK SPOILER ENDED. Ok after that im gonna talk about the moves u can unlock. The punch flurry was nice. And I LOVED black spider-mans trendil attack. Elbow smash is rly good. The symbiote bosses were fantastic for example Symbiote Vulture, Symbiote Wolverine, Symbiote Electro ect. The unlockable costumes were fun to use, but the Iron spider-man was almost immposible to get. My fav costume was spider-man 2099. Collecting spiders was pretty fun. So overall this is a great game and i hope everyone has great holidays, so bye!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by TommyK Scary on One Side, but not So Much on the Other 2
The more I play the better I feel and the worse my brothers feel. Still scary and also not. My favorite part is when SpiderMan first faces off with Venom. The scary part was when Eddie Brock was saying he would take Mary Jane from SpiderMan. I like that you can throw and destroy vehichles and all that stuff. I like the action and perfect gameplay and the sound is like it's really happening...like you're watching a video of the real thing. It lasts like forever you can bearely go to sleep at night. It's probably the best singular player game EVER! The way Venom looks gives me the creeps, but eventually that goes away. Theres so much suspense. You don't know what'll happen next. I'm eager to play it right now. OOOOHHHHHH! Must not! MUSTTTT!!!!!!!!!!! NNNNNNNOOOOOOOTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!NOOO!!! MMMMUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!! That's it I'm gonna play RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by mbev1994 one of my favorite games for the wii so far
I just got the game yesterday but let me start by saying this game does not suck it is a very good game the combat system is fun and the way you can customize it is great and the choice to switch to the black suit at anytime is very cool and can make fights more interesting the lowest thing i rated on here was the challenge sometimes this game feels a little easy like when your taking on only one guy but when your taking on like 6 of them with 2 giant robots that you can't really destroy unless you throw cars at them along with having to get ticking time bombs off of a building and to a bomb squad it is a lot more difficult the graphics are not that bad for a wii game i don't know why some people hate it i also like how you can choose what to do after a boss fight you can either do the evil thing or the right thing over all this game is one of the greatest for the wii.
Rated 8 out of 10 by USG ishimura137 Best spiderman game
Spiderman web of shadows is a fun web slinging action game. But the web slinging and combat has been changed. It has now improved. The combat is great on the ground, the air, and even on the walls. Just sometimes it can feel a little too repetitive. But there are some sweet moves you can do that you will never get bored of. The idea of switching to the black suit and back whenever you want, is a very cool thing. Spiderman is good for speed and most of the combat. And black suit spiderman is good for power he's able to pick up cars and throw them. The graphics are pretty good, but it doesn't beat the ps3 and xbox 360 versions. The sound in the game can be rather god and rather strange at times when you hit things. The controls are pretty good, you get the hang of it very quickly. The length of the game is pretty long, I just can't really like the story. That's what it lacks.

Any real long-time Spider-Man fan would have played (or known of) The first 3-D Spider-Man game to hit consoles. It had no little teaser after the title. As far as the combat and swinging goes, it was basic. However, the storyline was full of twists and turns, and it began with a symbiote invasion. It only gets better! I believe Web of Shadows will be loosely based off of this game, with many improvements and a more apocalyptic approach to the symbiote invasion. FYI: This game is comic-book based, not film. The latest trailer shows the classic spidey suit, the venom suit and the comic book Wolverine. Look into things before you comment. The first 3-D Spider-Man game was made before the mediocre movies and Web Of Shadows, regardless of newer games, isn't. Think about reserving it, Web Of Shadows could very well be the best Spider-Man game ever created.
Rated 8 out of 10 by camera177 Great Game
I think that this game was the best Spider-Man game yet. It had a great story line, and I loved the way you could make red and black suit choices. They didn't effect gameplay much, but it changed the dialouge alot, especially with different people entirely. The controls were great, but the way people talked about the controls, I was hoping for much more. I did think they were pretty good though, even as a wii newcomer. The game doesn't have very good replay ability, though I did, just to see the different outcomes of the red and black suit choices. I didn't really like the repedity of it the same villians, being defeated the same way. The only relief was the boss fights, even then it still seemed not very challenging though. Overall, it was a very good game and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Marvel, Spider-man, or *spoiler*, Wolverine!
