4.0 out of 5 stars Quite fun...4.5 stars September 26, 2005
Platform for Display:GameCube|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll be the first to admit it, I'm not a video game guy. I buy one or two games per year, and the last one I bought was Spider-Man 2, which I played like crazy. I loved that game. When I heard about Ultimate Spider-Man, and that it was going to have the same structure as SM2, I knew that it would be my gaming purchase of the season.

I definitely did not waste my money. If you enjoyed Spider-Man 2, chances are you're going to enjoy this game as well.

So far, I am very happy with this game. It will give me many hours of enjoyment. Still, there are elements of the game that could have been improved. The radar/map that was present in SM2 is still intact, but is much harder to see in this incarnation. Swinging through trees is disorientating as well. These are minor gripes, and once I got used to them, the game is just as good as SM2. Currently I am stuck trying to chase Electro as Venom, a task that is proving much harder than any of the Black Cat chases in the previous game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Spider-man, Fun but Brief July 6, 2007
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:GameCube|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ultimate Spider-man was created by Treyarch and Activision, their third Spider-man game. The game is fun but repetitive and brief. Ultimate Spider-man was a comic that launched in the 2000s. It is a reenvisioning of Spider-man for a new generation. This game is not based on a movie. The game's opening sequence takes only a couple of seconds to explain the origin of Spider-man using only the words "This is how it all began." Then, it goes straight to the chase. Peter's father, Richard Parker, and Eddie Brock Jr.'s father, both worked on the Venom Project. Despite its menacing name, it was designed to be a suit that could cure cancer. When they signed a contract with Boliver Trask, he turned it into a powerful weapon. In more recent years, Peter and Eddie meet, and Eddie shows Peter the suit. Later, Peter Parker(As Spider-man) breaks into the place where the suit is being kept and tries it on. The suit gives him enhanced strength but it starts to devour him. He manages to get it off, but it nearly costs him his life. When Eddie Brock realizes what Peter had done, he tries the suit on, and becomes the monstrosity known as Venom, which leads to an opening battle: Peter Parker against Venom. The graphics look amazingly like a comic book. The actual game play buttons have been simplified since the last Spider-man game. This game is not a bad purchase.

This game caught my eye when on the TV I saw and I qoute:Play as spiderman play as venom! end qoute:it was fun and the very first level was a personal favorite because you play as a much more younger 15 year old spiderman compared to the spiderman 2 version which makes him seem like 24 maybe and what I like is that you fight (a weak but fast)Venom I was sucked into the game then once I hit him a couple times the battle goes off to the street where everyone is screaming (something which spidey 2 incredibly lacked because they had no interatcion with thugs and this like that)after seeing the big ugly face of venom and Venom might kill a few civilians (something else spidey 2 lacked)he had this really great move where he laxs out a long whiplash arm attack which can be hurtfull not only that but you also get eaten a couple times which made it more fun to break out of his body a few times untill you eventually gets venom on a date with an electrical wire which (from peters view) kills him thats about it all in all the good is that Nice texture and graphics the ability to be able to play as venom and spidey and fun fighting bosses the bad is that sometimes the storyline doesn,t really make any sense and lose your trail from where you were to where you are now

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate! November 23, 2006
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:GameCube|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have no idea how anybody could possibly not like this game. My best friend thought it was a bad choice when I bought this game. I soon changed his mind when I got him a profile on the game and he got to the fight with Herman (heehee) and he was hooked. The real hook for this game is being able to play as not only Spidey but Venom DURING the story. The graphics are great and so is the story even though it is a little short. Even so, you can still play for hours upon hours after finishing the story with Free Roam mode. There are unlockables that you can get that will take effort but are surely worth it. You have variety in the city events that the spidey 2 game didn't necessarily have. Also, the story had debth and underlying meaning that you really wouldn't find in another game like this one. With humor in spidey's quips and situations you will leave and enter again from this game with a smile on your face (beneath your mask).

As the title indicates Ultimate Spiderman has a very short single-player story, which can probably be completed in six hours or even less. The length of the game, however, is considerably lengthened side-tasks most of which are web-swinging races, some of which are gang beat-em-ups, and occasionally rescuing and searching for hidden tokens. These side-tasks are by no means side-quests and are by no means as entertaining as the main story, so why do they comprise the majority of the game's length is a question that will boggle the minds of gamers. This game had the potential to achieve greatness, but falls short due to shortness of story. The inked-cartoonish look of Spiderman is great although not as spectacular as the model Spiderman in Spiderman the Movie game, which I have also reviewed. I have yet to play Spiderman II, but at some point I plan to. However, the short story of Ultimate Spiderman is far superior in gameplay than the gameplay of Spiderman the Movie. Playing as both Spiderman and Venom is great and both characters are well-designed with fabulous inked-comic book looks, which in a way maybe better than the more deeply modeled look in Spiderman the Movie. Play as Spiderman you feel both swift and powerful, while playing as Venom you feel a great sense of power and monstrous rage. It is great. The majority of missions are as Spiderman, which is fine. The most spectacular parts of this game are the boss battles. Wow, you truly fight gigantic characters in this game, that would seemingly crush Spiderman but cannot for his speed and wit are too great. Venom leaps tall buildings in a single-bound just to give you a hint about his power. The game has various unlockables but they are for the most part afterthoughts. Read more ›
