A small investment into an old passion of mine seemed like a good idea at the time, then the game was played.
When Spider-Man was purchased for £2.95 I was like a little kid at Christmas. Running home to plug in my game console, then that sweet sound of the game loading. The game was overrated.
Spider-Man 3 is my favourite movie of the trilogy, (with Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man and James Franco as the new Goblin) because of the graphics and effects. It is even better in 3D. Trouble takes on Peter Parker and his black suit certainly makes Parker take on trouble. Parker must conquer the black suit as super villains make a plot to destroy Spider-Man and those closest.
The graphics were worse than Spider-Man 2, the buttons were not very friendly, and the story was bang average. Mary-Jane doesn’t sound like Mary-Jane, experience is barely enhanced with the sound, the game adds villains that do not exist in the movie and no one really cares about them. However, Spidey’s swinging mechanics are depicted well, and the use of his black suit really helps progression on some missions. When Parker entered Dr Connors’ (a teacher of Parker) lab and it was found he had transformed into ‘The Lizard’ (from the comics) it just didn’t make sense, especially for those who have never read the comics. ‘The Lizard’ would have been introduced as a character into Spider-Man 4. This is again unrealistic for those expecting a movie-game.
You could compare this to a really bad movie. ‘Needing’ a drink after 10 minutes of playing, ‘Needing’ another toilet break after 20 minutes, and turning it off after 30 minutes. Below are two images, and I will let you decide for yourself which one is was released before the other.
