Rated 10 out of 10 by all aroung the world gamer wow!
When i got this game I was scared. I didn't know what to expect. Earlier this summer I played the Incredible Hulk game it's closely related to this game. The way you can go aroung and cause havok or save civilians. First of all the open world game play is used to it's best use in this game. Dare I say it almost better then GTA open world. I say this because you can climb up buildings, Swing anywhere, and destroy everything along the way. Now when you first get started it's mission after mission so to get into the gameplay more I immediatly went exploring and in no way was dissapointed. It is a solid yet simple and fun controlled sandbox game. At first the controls are a little overwelming but in 20 minutes or so you'll love them. I'm an all around gamer who plays almost every type of game. This is a game that is worth the time and money. It's long but not too long. However, once you beat it you still have fun swinging and showing off to friends who come over. Great Game! It deserves an A in my book.

This game is looking really good. So the story is that there is an alien invasion in Manhattan. You as Spiderman have been re-infected by the alien symbiote. You have the ability to quickly switch suits by the click of the left analog stick. The classic red and blue is quick and agile, the black suit has heavier and more powerful attacks. The more you use the black suit the more people will be afraid of you, and you might be allies with some darker characters. Confirmed characters in this game are Wolverine, Luke Cage, Black Cat, Mary Jane, Kingpin, Venom, Vulture, Electro, and Rhino I might be missing some. The thing that stands out the most in this game is the new cool combat. Described as the most vertical combat ever you will be able to fight from the streets up to the side of a building and finally into an arial fight. With the new combat, interesting story, and a good amount of Marvel heroes this is looking like what might be the best Spiderman game ever.

I bought Web of Shadows and I fell in love with the game play! The story has some holes in it, and there are some glitches but that is to be expected of a game like this with so much power given to you in a world this large. The game play is to die for; I seemed to get lost at times in the amazing acrobatics, in the air zipping from one villain to the next. This is the type of game that comic based games should mimic because for what it’s worth the story is important but action is equally if not more important. In this love affair, my main gripes consist of the story (even though it works) being somewhat thrown together, and the voice acting of spider-man character. The one liners were totally Spidey, but I propose that for the next game they use someone with a just a little more base in their voice. Also, I would like to see Spidey out of costume at some point doing something as peter, as I think that would help the story. But in all I think Web of Shadows is the best Spidey Game to date and I look forward to the next one!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Legend2537 Web of Shadows, Revives Spider-man Games
I was disappointed with Spider-Man 3 the movie. I couldn't even joke about being disappointed about Web of Shadows. This game is excellent. Best Graphics you could ask for a comic book game, storyline is awesome. Each cut-scene is different depending what suit you have on before the scene. Last but not least the controls. The controls are phenomenal, you can do just about anything at any given point in time. You want to sling on to a car and blow it up, go for it! When you jump off that car immediately go right on ahead and sling right back onto a gang thug. Easily the best Spider-Man game ever. If you love Super-Hero Games then this is a must-buy. Going back to the storyline, you start the game with the symbiotes already attacking the city. After all that happens, you go into hearing the traditional Peter Parker voice narrating the story. Peter then says this all happened 4 days ago. So yeah, finish the Prelude, go back 4 days in time and Venom is trying to squish your tiny little spider head. And that's where the game begins.

The mechanics are great. You have to level spider-mans ability's and over time the upgrades for the dark suit. I love how it reminded me of the comic books because the suit takes over at any moment with one click and it changes up the combo's for more xp. This is the first spider-man game that had wall combat and it was fun. I beat the game and I still play it because it is smooth and one of the best. I just wish some of the enemy's were better but I wont complain.
Rated 10 out of 10 by stonedvegeta Greatest Game ever!
This game is a must buy! if you love Spider Man you will not be disappointed. I mean with every new attack i get i am amazed and i can tell this game is going to last me a good while. I would say the coolest thing about it is the fighting system, how the story is based on the comics and that Toby McGuire has nothing to with the game. Spider man 2 was a great game for the PS2 but i didn't even bother with Spider Man 3 until i saw it for cheap and the only reason i got it was because i love spider man and my PS2 is out of commission i mean it was alright but it got boring real fast the only thing i liked was the button sequences they were cool but i didn't get to see what Spidey was doing half of the time. With this game i don't understand on the game case it says LIVE but it's not on the Xbox live market or anything i mean if its not on the market or you can't do anything on Xbox LIVE with it then just don't put it on there that its on LIVE.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Sammydudegamer Spiderman web of shadows is awesome
This game is so cool. i bet there are over 50 different combos. this game is pretty long and u have the choice of wearing the regular suit or the black suit. slowly the citizens become infected and u beat up gangs and venom infected people. fighting and going in the air is pretty much merged. i mean, u can throw somebody in the air and then web kick them to another building and choke it on the wall until it dies. the red suit is more for traveling and the black suit is more for fighting. this game is super addicting though, if u like spiderman and all the stuff. u could even choose to do the good path or the bad path. i sometimes spend hours on this. u face bad guys, venom, venom zombies, wolverine, symbiote wolvering, eletro, symbiote eletro, black cat, symbiote black cat and this weird 5 head gigantic venom monster with floating heads and the heads shoot out symbiote zombies. it is a really cool game if u r into comic book sort of games.

This is the Spider-man game i have been waiting for. For the first time you get to play as spidey and use the full extent of his powers.The freedom to switch between customs, the moves, boss fights, and to be able to shape your destiny and New Yorks it doesn't get any better. I reserved this game the second i heard of it coming out and i have no regrets not only does the game meet my expectations it exceeds them and the bonus shirt coolest bonus item for a game ever. I recommend this game to anybody who loves super hero games and any one who doesn't. For any body who's ever read the symbiote invasion comics this game follows it to the t. I just wish you could play as venom too. For any body wondering this game is set like spider-man 3 but amped up millions of time better. I have yet to beat this game but i see this as a game i will play over and over just to see the different out comes. The web head finally gets his finest hour.

I was a bit skeptical about buying web of shadows with the mixed reviews, especially how ign gave it a 5.5. I decided to rent it first and let me tell you, I'm going to buy it now to support the people who made such an awesome game. The open-world is LARGE and web-swinging around it is one of the best experiences in any video-game. But the major thing that this game about is combat. It is AWESOME! The amount of combos you can do is crazy, and you chain them together with so many different moves and it is easy to jump from enemy to enemy. For the first time in a free-roaming video-game, I decided to do the optional quests because I enjoyed the combat so much. It is so deep, with so many different moves you can purchase for the Red Suit and the Black Suit. Activision took a gamble making a spiderman game not related to the movie and it is truly a gem. Support them by going out to buy it so they can make an amazing sequel.
Rated 10 out of 10 by 5ome Rand0m P3rson Better than i expected!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Spider-Man web of shadows is a very hardcore game for all fans of Spider-Man I would give it a 10/10. The challenge was pretty good venom and wolverine were the most fun I especially liked the choices as dark spidey and light spidey it really makes you feel you are spider-Man during the chaos in the city. And being able to wander of all the city I also liked the choice between black spidey. Its also good for kids there is hardly no blood. With a teen rating the controls were easy to remember and as soon as you get in the game theres non stop fighting. The xbox 360 graphics are amazingly beautiful. And upgrades are cool and your allies are even cooler the best I think of the fights were the Symbiote Heroes Such as Symbiote Wolverine, Symbiote Black Cat , and so on. In General I give the entire game, controls,graphics,story, challenge, length, sound, and interface a Ten out of ten
