Ultimate Spider-Man: PS2, Xbox and Gamecube Game Review

Spider-Man video games have been coming out for five years now but this is the first time that the Ultimate Spider-Man comic has been made into a video game! With a story done by the guys behind the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book from Marvel, this game has some solid superhero action. Check out the details with our review.

Web-Slingin' Mayhem with Spider-Man!

Not only do you get to web-sling your way through New York as a young Spider-Man (he's in high-school in the Ultimate Spider-Man comics) but you get to play as a villain. The nasty bad guy, Venom, shows up for about one-third of the game and you get to play as him. How bad is he? He eats people to get his life bar back! No ketchup even! Ew.

Super-Action in Ultimate Spider-Man

With stylin' graphics and awesome sound effects, right down to the voice-acting, this game is off to a flying start. Spider-Man and Venom both act like they just jumped out of a comic, with Spidey getting lippy with bad guys as he thumps 'em. There are also lots of comic book covers and bonus items to find as well as guest appearances by other Marvel comic characters.

Super-Size Problems in Ultimate Spider-Man

If you dug the web-slinging in Spider-Man 2, you're in for a disappointment. It's been whittled right down so any munchkin can web-sling like a pro without needing any skill. Ditto for the fighting - it's totally simplified. But, the biggest problem is that Venom just isn't fun to play. He can't swing from webs and constantly stopping to snack on people *burp* gets boring.

Does Ultimate Spider-Man Save the Day?

Ultimate Spider-Man lives up to its name! If you don't mind a few plodding Venom levels, you'll definitely enjoy Ultimate Spiderman for the Gamecube, PS2 and Xbox.
