The operative word being other. Web of Shadows and Spider-Man 2 actively work to disprove this, and in at least large part they succeed.John Tacos said:No. Just No. Spiderman doesn't do well in games, we've already figured this out with E-V-E-R-Y other spiderman game.
But is it on par with X-Men Arcade?Akas said:I disagree. Check out the DS version of Spiderman: WoS. It's actually decent and fun, and it actually might be the best version out of all of them even though (and perhaps because) it plays like a side-scroller beat-em-up.
Ok, as I mentioned above, it's mainly the combat. Y'know how Spidey's always tended to fight with both feet off the ground in comics, using webs to great effect, but none of the games before WoS really managed to make that possible? That resulted in a great disconnect between swinging (great, mostly) and fighting (meh at best) almost as great as that between overland and battle screen in a Final Fantasy game.John Tacos said:Okay then, just a question: How? I'm not being hostile, I just am a little hesitant to believe considering the track record. While you explain Ill look at the website.
I've located a gameplay video of that Vulture fight on Youtube.John Tacos said:Alright, so it looks nice, but so did Ultimate Alliance, and that lost playability like halfway through. Listen, I'm a big Spiderman fan, I must have 6 or 7 first editions of certain issues in my possesion, so when I think of Spiderman, I have high expectations. This just seems like marvel wants to keep ashing on this Venom-Craze thing from the 3rd movie. (which I refuse to watch) I love being able to play as my favorites, but I love to be able to play the without saying, I rather wish I hadn't spent the money on this. If the release a demo, Ill try it out. I can't promise Ill like it, but Ill let you know once ive played it if I should start to change my mind about Comic-book games/Movie-games.
