Guide Review - Spiderman: The Movie - Video Game

One honesty doesn't expect too much from a game based off of a movie, but that's slowly changing. Spiderman: The Movie is a prefect example of why.

The concept of the game is simple enough: beat up thugs, find a key, rescue someone, beat up the boss... But Spiderman's strength is in the details. The visuals and sounds are great. Tobey Maguire does do the voice work, however, he sounds like the Green Goblin forced him to.

Spidey looks, moves, and fights very well. There's nothing more satisfying than dropping off the celing, grabbing a thug, flipping him across the room, then tying him up with your web so you can go pound on him some more. Spiderman does a great job of rescuing gamers from another lame spinoff game.
