Rated 7 out of 10 by TacoLord OK but not Great.
This game is ok but don't expect it to be a great game that you play for hours and hours over again. First off, the gameplay is very repetitive in the way of you start the level, fight some henchman for about 5 minutes, fight the boss for the first time, fight some more henchman and rescue civilians, then finish the boss off. And that pretty much repeats for every level throughout the game. Also I played the game on the hardest difficulty and it was fairly easy so if your looking for a challenge you won't get it. But hey, the game isn't supposed to be a challenging game for hardcore gamers. Its a game thats meant to be fun, enjoyable game for spiderman fans. But some of the good things I have yet to mention. I loved how they let you play as Amazing, Ultimate, 2099, and Noir. Playing as two new spidermen never before seen was fun for me and I really enjoyed the Noir universe the best. But ya, if you want to pick up a simple and fun spiderman game this is it. Just don't expect it to be anything great.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Ravious For anyone under 15
When I first heard about this game's release I thought it would be cool to have but I never set out to buy it. So the otherday when I saw the whole buy two get one free I picked out Soul Calibur IV, Enemy territory quake wars and Shattered Dimensions. I was alittle surprised I picked out a Spider-man title since I never really liked them. For the life of me I could not remember why I strongly disliked (h8) the spider-man games. Let me just say this game served as a good reminder. The graphics are pathetically cartoonish (identical to ultimate spiderman) and the spidermen are terrible at joking, which they do every couple seconds. I really looked forward to playing as spiderman 2099, but was horribly dissappointed when his voice sounded like a big rig trucker. The only version I liked was noir, but one out of four is not enough for me to keep a game. Sorry spidey but it looks like I'll catch you on the flip side.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Stud This game is ok... just ok
I was so excited to pick this game up after hearing about it for awhile. I played it through on easy then went back and beat it on hard. There were a few things that made this game unenjoyable. 1) When wall crawling, Spider-Man seems to not want to follow which direction you put him in. The camera angles screw it all up and make you even more frustrated. 2) The fight engine needs a tune-up. When i was fighting a group of guys, i would start attacking one and then spidey would randomly turn and attack another. When i tried to attack an object, it would instead launch me towards one of the bad guys. 3) It gets so repetitive. Just about every level is: see bad guy, chase bad guy, fight mini-battle with bad guy, chase bad guy again, final battle with bad guy. CHANGE IT UP! Bearing these things in mind, i would recommend you rent it or borrow it from someone. It should only take you like 10 hours to beat it.
Rated 0 out of 10 The fourth Dimension is not whtat any of you think.
Ok, so alot of you are saying that it will be either scarlet spiderman, spiderman 1602, or spiderman 2211. Sorry to break it to you guys, but it is none of the above. First of all, if you look at the picture of the game,it shows that spiderman's mask is a purplish-black, which is not the same color of any of the previous spidermans i mentioned. So don't count on it being any of those, count on it being something like black spiderman, or even a new original spiderman they just came up with. With that said, i think it will be a great game, and im even going to pre-order it to get the cosmic spiderman suits (I don't really like some of the cosmic suits, but some are cool). I just hope that you can switch off between cosmic and normal suits whenever you want, and that when you're not wearing the cosmic suit, you still get the new power. It should be a great game, and I'm really looking forward to it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Spinosaurus PRETTY GOOD
This is sort of and sort of not a RE-REVIEW. I already reviewed this game for wii, but I got the 360 version and it is better. Anyway, the graphics are great, the gameplay is fun, addicting, mostly easy, even on the hardest difficulty,hard, but it does give you some challenges, so awesome difficulty. You get lots of points from fighting bad guys and completing challenges and levels and stuff, and you use them to buy upgrades, new attacks/moves, and alternate spiderman suits.Most of the xbox live achievments are easy/easy-ish to get. You have to repeat the levels multiple times to mostly beat the game, but it is worth it. The main reason I bought this game and I am playing it again is to keep me busy for until batman arkham city comes out. Overall, a good game for ANY spiderman fan, whether they are hardcore experts, or random people who know almost nothing about spiderman, but like him anyway.

We are in dire need of a next-gen Spider-Man game. Web of Shadows was okay. It wasn't great, though. The personalities of some of the characters in Web of Shadows were a little weird compared to those of the comic books. This game, however, looks like a cool game. I hope it has an Arkham Asylum feel to it. It would really help it. One thing I must point out is that this Spider-Man game is going to do what every other one didn't. It is going to get rid of the open-world cities that got a little boring to explore after a while. Also, it'll let you go through four of the Spider-Man worlds from the comics. The first two that were revealed were the Amazing Spider-Man universe and the 1930s Noir universe. So, to summarize this preview, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions looks like it is going to be the old webhead's return to videogame greatness. Nuff said.
Rated 5 out of 10 by RedSparrow Okay
Spider-Man is a fun game I'll admit but it can become irritating. I am still on my first playthrough and its getting hard to sit down and play it. There is a repetitive boss battle each level, now dont get me wrong but twelve bosses is not necessary. On top of that you have to fight the boss an average of 3 times each level. The dialouge is like a dead mouse that just got ran over with a manure truck ( like the one in Back to the Future). The reason I gave it anything above a 1 is because I like the fighting gameplay even though most of the time its just button mashing. The last thing I need to nag about is that I hate being Noir Spider-Man! Hes a spider-man without any powers and each level is in black and white. But i am still glad I bought it, plus it is a long campaign and that what i needed. Also the upgrade system is pretty interesting.
Rated 5 out of 10 by ZV20 Too cartoony
It's a little too cartoony for my taste. What got me addicted to the Spider-Man genre was Spider-Man 2. I wanted a game like that for the Xbox360. I like the whole roam around New York, Manhattan, Brooklyn, concept. That's what brings out the Spider-Man in any Spider-Man game. This game, for what I have played it (hour and some odd minutes), has no free roam ability/feature. The game is split up on different levels and, granted that is how a game progresses, this is not how a Spider-Man game should be created(In my opinion). I believe allowing Spider-Man to free-roam like he did in Spider-Man 2 allows the player to have more fun. That game allowed the player to free-fall, jump off of any ledge, and dive anywhere he or she wanted to dive.The game also gave the player the occasional save the man with the brief case, rescue a woman or man from a gang of thugs, and rescue a balloon option; while letting the player choose when he or she wanted to progress throughout the story (Kind of like the Grand Theft Auto series). That game was fun and other companies should invest in that kind of concept. Again, this is just my own opinion.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Celtic1962 Even non-comic fans can have fun with this game
I'm not really a big Spiderman fan, or any other super hero for that matter. however, I was intrigued by playing as four different Spidermen so i gave it a shot and was pleased with my purchase. Going through three chapters with each one divided up by playing as the four unique characters really helped to keep things interesting. Camera wasn't always perfect but overall worked fine, much better than Web of Shadows. Combat was fun, graphics were great as they changed to fit the mood of whatever Spiderman you were playing as and the voicework was also well done. Adding to the fun was trying to reach the specific challlenges each level had. Most of the challenges were easily obtainable but there would always be a few tougher ones that kept me coming back to the level until i'd finally get it. Fun for anyone that enjoys action games.

There are 4 diminsions as you all know. Amazing Spiderman- The present day spiderman Noir Spiderman- A 1940s era spiderman 2099 Spiderman- The futuristic Spiderman And the unknown spiderman. Well After doing plenty of searching i found the forth and final diminsion, Ultament Spiderman- A Spiderman still under the control of the symbote. He has similar capabilitys of Venom. The story line begins as the "Tablet of Order and Chaos" is shattered into 4 pieces after a battle between Amazing Spiderman and Mysterio which causes problems in other diminsions. If you used to watch the cartoon series of spiderman, you probley remember madame web. The freaky lady who seems to know everything about Peter Parker/ Spiderman. Well she appers in this game and brings the 4 heros together and has them help her bring the diminsions back together.
