Product Description

Amazon.com

A 3-D action-adventure game starring everyone's favorite webhead, Spider-Man is quite a rarity--a superhero video game that's worth playing. Featuring an original story jam-packed with characters and locations from the comics, and, more importantly, gameplay that does our hero justice, this is one title that won't disappoint Spidey fans.

While Spider-Man's story line (told via a slide show of comic book panels) is linear, there's great freedom of movement within the game's 3-D indoor and outdoor environments. True to comic book form, you can climb walls and travel about webswinging, although the former can be disorientating in terms of point-of-view, and the latter is often a leap of faith, as the game's shoddy graphics (even with the optional Expansion Pak) create a restricted field of vision. In addition to being able to do all sorts of nifty things with your webspinners, Spidey's superstrength, superagility, and spider-sense (for which you'll want a Rumble Pak to feel the patented tingle) are also accounted for. As for his superhuman reflexes, well, that one's really up to you. --Joe Hon

Pros:

  • Gameplay that actually does Spider-Man justice
  • Simple in-game display; solid controls
  • Lots of secrets unlock in records and gallery modes
  • Kid mode simplifies controls and gameplay for younger players
Cons:
  • Shoddy graphics can cause Spidey to go splat
  • Point-of-view can be disorienting at times
  • PlayStation version features much-improved graphics and sound

Product Description

Take a look overhead--Spider-Man is arriving to the Nintendo 64 just in time. As the beloved photojournalist-cum-webslinger, you'll explore New York's skyline, sewers, and hideouts to fulfill several side-scrolling missions. Use Spider-Man's superhuman strength to fight such notorious foes as Scorpion, Venom, and Rhino. Use his spider abilities to spin webs (any size) so you can disable and detain bosses, swing around buildings, and creep along walls and ceilings. And thanks to your spider-sense, you'll detect impending danger from a distance. There is no wealth or fame at the end of this game, however; action is your only reward.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Game December 26, 2000
If I hear one more sob story about what this game lacks, i think i'm gonna puke. The fact is that whatever shortcomings this game has, there's more than enough fun to overshadow them. I have beaten the game several times and I still haven't become tired of it. I don't think that swinging across the rooftops of New York will ever get boring-- but besides that, the player has at his disposal almost all of those wonderful spider-man powers, allowing you to explore every inch of the 3D environment. There are simple attacks for the newcomer, and more advanced web maneuvers to learn as you progress. Level objectives range from saving hostages to evading capture to the good old-fashioned boss beat-em-up. And once you're done, you get to go back and unlock all those secrets you missed the first time, definite replay value. There are four difficulty levels, easy, medium, hard, and a "kid mode" with adapted controls and gameplay for litle guys. And after seeing and playing both PSX and N64 versions, I can honestly say this really is a superior port of an excellent playstation game, a feat rarely seen. Spider-man is compatible with the expansion pack for Hi-res graphics, although it looks excellent without one. The only thing missing from the PSX version is the FMV cutscenes, but these were replaced with an ingenious "slide-show" feature, making the comic book theme that much stronger. This is definitely the best super-hero game I've ever played. If you like Spider-man, action games, or just fun in general, do yourself a big favor and buy this game. P.S.-If you are one of the unfortunate souls who were duped into buying Superman, this game will restore your faith in comic book licenses. I promise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Game!! November 26, 2000
By A Customer
Spiderman is a very cool game for the N64. It's fun and challenging. The graphics are spectacular; better than the playstation version. It supports expansion pak for even better graphics and you MUST have a controller pak to save your game. The sound is good, just as good as the playstation version. HOWEVER, all the Full Motion Videos(FMV) in the playstation were cut out and replaced with a comic book pictures with sound effects. I liked the psx FMV better than the comic book though. MOST IMPORTANTLY are the controls. They're just awful. The standard for N64 controls is the B button for attacking and A for jumping. In spiderman, C down is used for punching, C left kicking. B button is used for zipping upwards on a web line which you hardly use. I've been playing for 7 hours and still haven't gotten used to the controls. So all in all, if you can stand missing the FMV, and the awful control scheme, you'll love this game every bit as much(if not more) than the playstation version. I give it a 4/5 stars because of the bad control and lack of FMV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiderman is back December 8, 2000
I haven't finished the game yet but, It is so fun that I have to write this review. This game is quite challanging from the start and it becomes pretty easy after awhile. For example the first stage: you must protect all of the hostages, one of them cannot die. If they do you start all over. It takes even strategy to make that not happen. This game is pretty much the same as the psx version but, the fmv's are missing but it is no biggie you do get clips as it was like a comic book. The sound and voices in the background are so spectacular, who ever thought that the 64 could handle that. The controls I have to agree is quite akward, whoever heard of punches and kicks on the c-buttons. But, you'll get used to it. I am giving this 5 stars still even if doesn't have the fmv's. Remember the fmv's are to relax and watch while the game play is what is important. Have a nice day.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a great game! December 5, 2000
By Mike P
This game is the world's best superhero game. You can do anything Spider-Man can. Cling to anything, shoot a webline. If Spidey does it, you can! At least, once you get use to the controls. And all the enemies look great!

4.0 out of 5 stars I get to be Spiderman!!! November 14, 2001
Forgive me if I sound too enthusiastic, but I love this game! It is just plain fun. What kid (or adult!) has not dreamed of being able to climb walls like Spiderman or shoot web and swing from building to building? You get to do all this and more in this game. It comes complete with 4 levels of play (including Kid level). The graphics are very good and interspersed with comic pages. Game on!

5.0 out of 5 stars JUSTICE HAS FINALLY BEEN SERVED December 31, 2000
The superhero genre of video games is at peace. After years and years of wasted efforts on various systems (SNES, Genesis, Game Boy, N64, Sega Saturn, PSX)under different licenses ranging from Batman, (Batman Forever on SNES, Batman Returns on Genesis, and Batman&Robin on PSX) to Superman, (Superman on N64) and yes, even Spiderman (Spiderman: Maximum Carnage on Genesis, Spiderman on Genesis, Spiderman/X-Men:Arcades Revenge), justice has finally been served. A few months after its Playstation 1 release, Spiderman by Activision has finally swung its way over to the Nintendo 64 system. The gameplay and levels remain true to the Playstation version, except for the fact that the graphics have improvved and that some secrets have been removed and most of the passwords to access these secrets have been changed of course. Spiderman can move 360 degrees in 3D environments ranging from the rooftops of New York City to inside the Daily Bugle, where Spiderman's alter ego, Peter Parker works as a photographer, and even underground in New York City's sewer system! Due to the limitations of the N64, I'd say that nearly 80% of the Full Motion Video has been left out of the Nintendo 64 version. Instead the story telling is done thru comic book style storyboards made up of still frame images from the FMV's of the PSX version. As other reviews point out the only thing where Spiderman for the N64 lacks is in the control. The actions are assigned a little differently then what I am sure most fellow N64 gamers aren't used to, but with a little patience, you should be able to get used to the button layout. Read more ›
