Amazing Comic Based Spidey Game!
I just recently bought Ultimate Spiderman for the Xbox. This is a game I'd been excited about since its release, but didn't have the access to buy until now (thanks to GameStop). As soon as I began playing I remembered why I had been excited to get this game. Ultimate Spiderman is free-roam like most Spiderman games, and with the large amount of collectible tokens and city events in the area, you'll be swinging around the city quite a lot. As for the gameplay, I have one word for you: Venom! The main thing that attracted me to this game and one of Ultimate Spiderman's shining aspects is the ability to play as Venom and access all of his car throwing and civilian eating splendor. Sadly you only have access to Venom in missions until you've beaten the game, whereafter you can switch between Spiderman and Venom in free-roam. I'm not saying Spiderman's sections in the game aren't enjoyable, because they are extremely enjoyable as well. I've spent plenty of joyful hours swinging through the expansive, comic-esque streets of New York as the masked spider. I guess in the end it comes down to the gamer playing to decide which playing style they enjoy more: swinging agilely through the city saving citizens as Spiderman, or rampaging through the streets throwing cars and crushing civilians as Venom! All-in-all this is an amazing game for Spidey and free-roam fans alike. It has a nice art design that works very well in-game giving it that comic book feel, a story straight out of the Ultimate Spiderman comics, and the ability to switch between swinging high above the city, and causing mayhem in the streets. The only problems I encountered during the game were an occasional mistiming of the sound and a very rare slip-up in the web-slinging system that doesn't allow you to, well, websling (this is very rare and happened only a few times during the entire time I played the game, and unless you're in a race, it won't affect you). I recommend this game to anyone looking for a good (in my opinion Great!) Spiderman game, a good free-roam game with a lot to do, or just anyone looking for something they can sit down and play. This game is one of my personal favorites and I hope it becomes one of yours too.
This is THE spider man game, so many villens, so many missions, between venom, the human torch and the carnege, this game kicks butt! Graphics for the games time were pretty good, and though peter parkers voice was sort of annoying, the sound was pretty good too.
