Spider-Man: Edge of Time: Playstation 3 Game Review

Spider-Man 2099 travels back in time to save the original Spider-Man in Edge of Time! But is this game worth your time? Read our game review and see!

Last year we got Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, which featured four different Spider-Men working towards the same goal. That game was not perfect, but it was pretty good. This year, Activsion has followed it up with Spider-Man: Edge of Time. Unfortunately, although two Spider-Man characters return in this year's game, Edge of Time isn't even half as good as last year's Shattered Dimension.

The Tale of Two Spider-Man

The story of Spider-Man: Edge of Time involves the original Spider-Man, Peter Parker, and Spider-Man 2099, Miguel O'Hara. The evil scientist Walker Sloan travels back in time and manages to create an alternate timeline where he rules with an iron fist. In this time, Sloan has managed to brainwash Anti-Venom and uses him to kill the original Spider-Man. However, Spider-Man 2099 has also traveled back in time and is keen to stop Sloan and save Peter Parker to restore order to the timelines.

Time Slows When There's No Fun

The gameplay in Spider-Man: Edge of Time mostly involves exploring the laboratories of Alchemax, the evil company founded by Walker Sloan. In order to proceed with the game, you have to do random tasks such as collect keys or deactivate switches. Some things you do in the "past", such as destroying force field systems, will affect the other Spider-Man in the future. However, as cool as it sounds, doing these tasks for the entire game gets pretty boring and the dull look of the labs doesn't help make things exciting either.

Overall, the story of Spider-Man: Edge of Time is interesting, but the boring gameplay makes it feel like forever before you get the next part of the story. Ultimately, it's not worth your time.

Have Your Say!

Are two Spider-Men better than one? Does time travel make everything better? Post your thoughts in the comments section below and discuss with other Kidzworld members!

What you’re refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/LInux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

No they shouldn't be allowed to play video games.  The best thing for women to do is to go out and settle down with a nice dindu as soon as they reach the age of 18.
