Spider-Man: Edge of Time
The only reason I am just now pre-ordering Spider-Man: Edge of Time is because I was waiting for the inevitable and much appreciated pre-order bonuses! As soon as I saw that the Identity Crisis outfits had become the pre-order bonus, I went straight to my local Gamestop to pre-order. This game is going to be so sick! I am extremely happy that Spider-Man games are finally getting the justice they deserve. Thank Beenox for creating a wonder Spider-Man game and then not falter to deliver a new and even better one! The Spider-Man gaming community thanks you! Activision better not let Beenox go, that would be one of their biggest mistakes (just a little below their Infinity Ward issues). Can't wait! Holiday 2011 will be the best Holiday yet for gaming!
This could be the second best comic game ever made
Ever since spider-man 2 the video game Spider-Man games have been substandard sand-box hero games (excluding Friend or Foe whitch was only substandard) until BEENOX gave to us Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions witch was easily the best Spider-Man game ever made with minor set backs like the wall craling, repetive first-person combat, Sandman tornadoes, Scorpian level and all the Norie levels. Yet you should check it out anyways and if you don't beleive me check the reviews. In any case the game starts as the amazing Spider-Man is killed by Anti-Venom (mind contoled by an evil scientist from the year 2099 to create a science empire in present day and to sucseed he must destroy the two things that can stop him... the amazing Spider-Man and in effect stoping 2099 Spider-Man from ever coming to be) who has the power to cure diseases and mutations in short 'cureing' Spider-Man of his Radio active mutation. The story has been made by comic book legend and co-creator of the Spider-Man 2099 comics Peter David so that gives me even more confidence. Voice overs are as good as ever and grapics have seemed to have improved from their last game greatly. Gameplay is the same the as last game for the two charaters with needed adjustments as I could tell by playing at E3 and Comic Con. I proudly predict that I will give this game nine out of ten stars to four out of five stars with perfect sound, gameplay, and graphics with an iffy lasting appeal unless they give a lot bonus content or not. Please vote weather this preview has been helpful or not.
Two spider-men, one great adventure.
Spider-man edge of time gives you two spider-men to play as, the game's story is great, sometime in the year 2099 a man named Walker sloane created a time machine and sends Anti-venom to kill the amazing spider-man, but the spider-man of 2099 named Miguel o'hara stumbles in on Walker's plan but he's too late to stop him, Anti-venom then kills the amazing spider-man thus creating an different 2099, so spider-man 2099 goes in the time machine to warn the amazing spider-man that he's going to die. The gameplay is good too, you have to get to the room spider-man dies in to save hostages, to do that you have to go room to room fighting enemies and solving puzzles, the combat gives you a wide selection of moves to choose from for each spider-man, but unlike in shattered dimensions there is not a lock on system so that can cause some trouble in some cases, the puzzles are simple, you have to unlock a door by killing an enemy or finding a button and so on, the biggest complaint I have is that it can get repetitive, and the bosses are lame. But if you love spidey as much as I do then you will love this game, even if it's not as great as shattered dimensions.
THUMPS UP IF YOU AGREE!!!!
PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT THIS GAME WONT BE GOOD, BUT I DISAGREE WITH THEM, BECAUSE IF WE LOOK AT THE TRAILERS WE CAN SAY THAT IT WILL BE GOOD, MAYBE EVEN AS GOOD AS ARKHAM CITY BECAUSE SPIDERMAN DESERVES A GOOD GAME AND IM SURE THIS IS THE ONE, THE BEST SPIDERMAN GAME YET...
AWESOME SM GAME!!!!!!
I really like this game, And you will too! There is the amazing spiderman and the 2099 spideman. The story line is Amazing! If you get this game, you'll see why i recommend this game. GET THIS GAME SM FANS!
Spider Man Edge Of Time, unfinished
Let me start out by saying this, Spider Man EOT, is a fun game, but i feel as if the game was rushed, and Beenox could of done a lot more. Now, Spider Man EOT has an engaging story line, in my opinion, but it's not as strong as Shattered Dimensions. If you are a Spider Man fanatic, of course you're going to like the story, which is basically the world of Spider Man 2099 and the world amazing Spider Man has merged together, and everything get's a out of hand. That's it. Now the gameplay has remained the same from shattered dimensions, except there is little improvements in how you upgrade throughout the game. It's nice to transition from 2099 spider man and the amazing spider man, but that dosent mean that keeps things fresh, it actually starts to get a little boring. the graphics have also remained the same as well, it's not he best, but it's also not the worse. Beenox have taken everything that made shattered dimensions great, and have reduced it to a smaller version of it, only focusing on 2099 spider man and the amazing spider man, which resulted in a game that lacks in depth, and dosent keep things fresh throughout what's so ever, and very rushed in my opinion
last time Beenox handled a spiderman game it turned out pretty desent lets see what they do this time
Better than i expected...
So i figured in would review this game because, like most people who will be looking for one, i was uncertain if i wanted this game or not. The story looked good, and intreged me into checking out the gameplay vids. Plus the pre-order bonus was 4 costumes from The Infinite Crisis series, pretty slick looking skins.
I'll start by telling you all that i had this pre-ordered, but cancelled it and moved my money over to RAGE.
I had previously bought a preowned copy of Shattered Dimensions a week before, and liked it but didn't love it, so returned it before 7 days were up.
However the more i looked at Edge of TIme the better it looked to me, so i figured ok, stuff it i'll buy it. When i got home i put Spidie in first (fully intending to spend a night on RAGE). But i couldn't get off of Edge of Time. Unlike Shattered Dimension, that had no real story, this has a realy good one. I actually feel more driven to play through the game to see what happens next. The graphics are in my opinion way better than Shattered Dimension, especially as i didn't like the animated look of Classic Spidey in Shattered Dimensions. Both 2099 and Classic have new powers and moves that make fighting fun and challenging.
The only negatives i have is that it's so addictive, you won't put it down easily,and its not the longest game (about 6-8 hours solid playthrough), and other than that, when web crawling the camera can still be a little frustrating. Although in Shattered Dimensions this only bothered me in Noir because of the Dark game play.
In conclusion i would say if you wait for a price drop (inevetable) or a preowned copy, you might be better off. However if like me you love Spidey, and this game looks fun to you, i assure you you'll enjoy it alot.
This is the best Spiderman game ever besides web of shadows. The gameplay was awesome and it was an intresting game. You should buy this game.
A Step In The Right Direction
I recently bought "Spider-Man: Edge of Time" because I am a die-hard fan of the Spider-Man franchise. After playing the game, I was not disappointed. The merging of two separate Spider-Men into one action-packed story was definitely a welcome change, and the plot and certain twists were especially something to behold. The gameplay was quite creative in it's use of different abilities and combat techniques depending on which Spider you would be playing, which gave the game more power of customization in terms of fighting style. I was overall happy with the game, but my only disappointment was that there was a lacking of more characters or "Boss fights." I would have definitely loved to see more of the classic Spidey villains and characters. But it's a small complaint when compared to the overall game. I definitely recommend this game for any Spider-Man fan!
