After several incarnations of Spiderman games based on the movies, we've finally been given a game based on the comics. The truth is, if you like Spiderman and enjoy the comics for being everything the movies aren't, then this is the game for you. The art is great and the cell shaded style fits the comic book theme. The dialogue is everything it should be: witty, well written, true to Spider-form, and not voiced by Tobey Maguire. The webslinging is beautiful to watch and several game mechanics are well formed including the "level-up" mechanism, the Spider-sense system, and-of course-the webslinging.
One problem from a gaming standpoint is that the game is short. The designers try to lengthen the game by making you complete side missions (races, combat tours, etc.). But this doesn't lengthen the game as much as it just slows you down a little. The only thing keeping the races from being monotonous is the enjoyment of watching the wall-crawler's aerial grace.
All in all, if you're a spidey fan, this game is a must have. Between the concept art, fun writing, and classic characters the enjoyment is worth it, even if the story is short. If you've never read Spiderman and are a pure gamer, then this might not be for you.
