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!
