Product Description

Product Description

Spider-Man is back for another web-slinging, crime fighting smash hit! Based on the plot of the movie Spider-Man 2, Doctor Octopus and his henchmen strike the city Manhattan with fear and it's up to you to stop them! Use Spidey's web-crawling abilities, spider-sense, super strength and soaring jumping power to bring justice where it's due. Features a realistically modeled Manhattan complete with massive skyscrapers and pedestrians on the streets below. Travel anywhere in search of petty crime-fighting opportunities as well as the nefarious Doc Ock!

From the Manufacturer

Two years have passed since Peter Parker first hit the streets of New York City as the conflicted crime-fighter Spider-Man. Now he finds himself battling his most diabolical villain yet, the mechanized, multi-tentacled Doc Ock. The nefarious Doc Ock was once Dr. Otto Octavius, a brilliant nuclear physicist. But a freak accident transformed him from a timid researcher to a criminally insane megalomaniac who blames Spider-Man for his horrible transformation. Now the scientist Peter once idolized for his remarkable intellect has marked our web-slinger for death.

Experience total freedom as you soar through the concrete canyons of a living, breathing Manhattan, complete with familiar landmarks and bustling, traffic-clogged streets. Combat petty thugs and aid NYC citizens in challenging side-quests, or pursue the lunatic Doc Ock and other classic Spider-Man rivals. The decision is yours.

Take Manhattan for a spin in Spider-Man 2.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrific June 28, 2005
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Get it away from me!! That's all I can say about this horrible, cheap and stripped down version of Spider-man 2: The Game. After all the wonderful reviews I've read about the console versions (Playstation 2, Gamecube, and XBox), I had to get it on PC, after all, it was only $20. It was very strange that when I opened it, it was only one CD-ROM. 'How could all of virtual New York fit on one CD-ROM?' The answer is very disappointing, it can't.

I was shocked to find that this version was LINEAR in gameplay, and you can't free roam around NY helping out civilians, like in the console versions. You can't even shoot your web and swing where you want, only in specific places. How awful huh? And the attacks are only on one button, which makes for very boring and easy battles. The game itself is very boring and simple, and one of the worst features is the awful camera. It will make you SO dizzy, you'll have to stop and turn away just to rest your eyes.

The point is, just don't get this game on PC! Like other's have said, and I agree, this must be one of the worst games I've ever played. Yes, even playing Spider-man himself! I recommend the first Spider-man game on PC instead of this one. That one was very much fun for adults and children alike. (I'm afraid that game, though, is out of print.) Even though it's priced cheaply, this game is not worth it. It should be worth about $10 less. With all it's flaws, this game might be enjoyable for children 10 and younger, and I think that's who it's made for, young children. Any older than that, and you'll be wishing you hadn't had opened the packaging.

1.0 out of 5 stars Activision should be ashamed. July 7, 2004
By Luke727
I've had an account with for at least 4 years. This is the only review I have ever written here. I am doing so because I felt aboslutely cheated by Activision with this game. They are marketing it as the same game as that on the consoles; they do not make any attempt at all to tell you that this is not the same game. I've played the game on a PS2, and it is brilliant. The version for the PC, however, is quite possibly the worst big-title game I have ever played. It is definately the worst Spider-Man game I have ever played, and I have played a lot of them (going as far back as the Sega Genesis version, which is still better than this garbage). This PC game is obviously marketed towards young children. The control scheme is VERY elementary; you use ONE button for punching, kicking, swinging, and webbing, depending on the situation. Unfortunately, this can quickly become frustrating if you are not oriented exactly correct for each move. I.E. you will zip to a wall when you meant to punch somebody. The audio is subpar, the graphics are cartoony and dated, the cutscenes play HORRIBLY out of sync and CHOPPY, even on the beefiest PCs. But by far the worst "feature" of this game is that there is no freedom. You can swing ONLY from special web icons located strategically throughout the city. You can zip anywhere on buildings, but you have to be close enough. This is a giant step back from the first game (which was GREAT, even on the PC). I'm not really disappointed at how much this game sucks. However, I'm furious that Activision would try to market it as the same game as the console version. That is just not a classy thing to do. They should make it painfully obvious that the PC version of Spider-Man 2 is an entirely different, kid-oriented game. Read more ›

After witnessing the deluge of advertising (including the "Making the Game" special on MTV) and seemingly universal critical praise for the console version of the game, I purchased the PC version expecting to play the same thing.
It's not.
The graphics are horrible (the Unreal engine is capable of ten times more; yet half the cutscenes are prerendered anyway by what seems to be an old, half-broken Nintendo 64), the same five enemy characters are re-used ad nauseam (and use the same taunt dialogue again and again), and the controls are non-standard and generally annoyingly difficult to use.
Most of all, the free-roaming environments and non-linear gaming so touted in the promotional materials ARE NOT PART OF THIS GAME. Even though the structure of the PC version seems designed for a console ("save points" instead of save-anywhere design; only one game can be saved at a time) it lacks any of the special features advertised for the console versions.
The Unreal engine can blow away even the Xbox's best efforts, and it's a shame that its power wasn't harnessed. The biggest shame, however, is that Activision has duped gamers into purchasing a totally linear, almost thoroughly unenjoyable product that is wholly different from the one that has been advertised excessively in the past weeks. I feel disappointed and cheated, and I hope I can get my money back. :-P

3.0 out of 5 stars The good and the bad about "Spider-Man 2" July 5, 2004
I'll start with the "bad" - this game is short. Brutally short. It felt like it took less than four hours to finish, which is a disapointment considering that I've heard the console version is bigger and longer.
The other strike against it is, well, it's not the console version. Apparently, console gamers got the more immersive game that had been advertised. While you can go in multile directions in "Spider-Man 2", you cannot zip off to, say, the Statue of Liberty, mostly because of the game's linear nature.
The "good" about this game is more personal one. As a handicapped gamer, some games can be almost impossible to play with one hand (like the first Spider-Man for the PC). The keyboard/mouse combo made this game accessible to anyone who plays single-handed, and it was refreshing to be able to play without frustration. So there WAS a bit of fun to be had. (Thank you Activision)
This game had potential, and the fact that it's so different than the better console version really has me scratching my head. Why not take advantage of a PC's abilities?
