When you die you'll be able to guide red health orbs to the center of the touch screen while popping poisonous blue orbs to replenish Spider-Man's health. The PS2 and PSP versions of the game are much more straight-forward given their comparatively simple 2D design. In the latter scenario, Black Widow, the Kingpin, the Tinkerer, and Symbiote Wolverine strike an alliance to eliminate Spider-Man. Explosions and special attack animations all dropped the framerate into single digit territory, which is a huge issue.

This ends up involving Spidey in a non-stop series of events that stretch across New York City and force the involvement of many of his allies and enemies, including Moon Knight, Wolverine, Black Cat, Vulture, Rhino, the Kingpin, and the Tinkerer, among others. The game DOES lack the ability to swing around the city after the endgame, which was a pretty cool thing to include in the earlier titles, but it makes up for it with a New Game Plus option that allows you to play over again with all experience and bonuses intact. In a mediocre game, such flaws would cripple the product; in Web of Shadows, they simply make a great game somewhat harder to recommend. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows gives you an unprecedented level of gameplay choice, including for the first time, control over the game's direction and outcome.GameSpy commented that " Web of Shadows manages to provide a good deal of fun even if it doesn't bring much new to the table", praising the animation and combat, and mentioning camera problems and visual glitches along with a repetition of objectives. The DS version of the game controls in a similarly intuitive way, though there are no ally summons or buffs to use mid battle. Batman’s a good dramatic character, Superman’s a world-saving juggernaut, and Wolverine’s an ass-kicking badass, but it’s hard to empathize with a crazy rich dude, an alien who wears a human costume, or an ancient angry guy who pretty much can’t die. This probably isn't anything you're average consumer would notice, but experienced gamers will appreciate the relative smoothness of the 360 version. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

PS3 has supposedly better controls (that's a user prefrence type thing) and sharper graphics, but as far as content goes, no. There are some exploration elements and hidden rooms, but you'll usually be moving from left to right while punching and kicking an assortment of thugs and symbiote-infected citizens. There are no extra motion controls for the PS3 version, but it does support rumble if you have a DualShock3 controller.

I loved Spider-Man 2, for example, because it combined everything great about Spider-Man with everything great about Grand Theft Auto into a mostly enjoyable game (and it featured the Black Cat, which is always awesome), but while Spider-Man 3 had missions involving Captain Jean DeWolff (which gives me hope that Spider-Man 4 will feature The Prowler, if nothing else), that doesn’t change the fact that it was a fairly god-awful game, and Ultimate Spider-Man wasn’t all that much better. If they helped the Green Goblin twice, Spider-Man realizes that, with the symbiote leader gone, he is now in charge of the symbiotes. Web of Shadows tries to emulate the epic feel of the Spider-Man movies with a brawny orchestral score filled with dramatic themes and pulsing crescendos. From tangling with Venom in Spider-Man 3, to teaming up with some of the series' most famed villains in Spider-Man: Friend of Foe, Activision has kept the boyish webslinger working overtime. From the game's direction to Spider-Man's destiny, Spider-Man™: Web of Shadows puts control in the gamer's hands.

At higher reputation levels, Spider-Man is viewed as a hero, and civilians will act friendly towards him and cheer him on; at lower reputation levels, civilians will cower in fear in Spider-Man's presence or run away. Points are acquired as he battles crime and advances, which allows him to improve his moves and actions. After releasing either Jameson or his clone, Spider-Man defeats Rhino, who was hired to guard the lab, and escapes with the vibranium.The 360 version has a slight advantage with achievement points and a smoother framerate, but otherwise the games are very similar. Four days prior, Spider-Man has an encounter with Venom ( Keith Szarabajka), during which part of the latter's symbiote attaches itself to Spider-Man, recreating his black suit. Jonah Jameson ( Daran Norris), who was captured and cloned as part of a plot by Smythe to discredit both him and Spider-Man. There isn't much voice acting as most of the story will unfold in dialogue boxes with only a few voiced one-liners popping up here and there.
