About the Product
- For the first time ever, control the legendary symbiotic Black Suit, which magnifies Spider-Man's strength, agility, durability and web powers, but the power comes at a price. The longer gamers play as black suited Spider-Man, the more they risk losing the good in him.
- In a unique mixture of open-ended gameplay and linear story progression, players can traverse and protect massive, wide open sections of New York City, battle villains from the feature film, or embark on a variety of original story arcs in whatever order they choose when they choose.
- Maximizing the capabilities of the Nintendo DS, players will experience Spider-Man's unique abilities as never before by controlling both red-suited and black-suited Spider-Man's movement and combat with a multitude of organic touch screen gestures and motions.
- Utilizing an in-depth "hero points" reward system, players can fully customize and upgrade Spider-Man maximizing his powers and abilities.
- With liberty and multiplayer for all - A variety of local wireless multiplayer gameplay modes such as Brawler, Hot Potato, Target Practice, and Combo Challenge allow for two players to face off in head-to-head Spider-Man action.

So I didn't buy this one. My friend had it in his DS, and I turned it on and gave it a shot. It's actually not bad. The controls are slightly awkward, but it's not overly difficult to manage holding the stylus in your right hand while maneuvering through the city with just your left.
The actions are creative, and the integration of the touch screen makes gives this game appeal that seems to me would be hard to find in this game on any other platform... it'd be just like every other hit movie based video game on the market.
Overall, I was pleased with the game, though its appeal doesn't appear to be a lasting one. Expectation has a lot to do with the general reaction to pretty much anything, and my expectations were quite low for this one.
A glaring problem with SpiderMan 3 (and quite possibly with many other touch screen/analog integrated games) is that this game is impossible to play left handed; the analog controls used for movement simply don't allow it. You have to use your left hand to move, and you need to use your stylus to attack. Therein lies the problem, something I found to be an enigma about the Nintendo DS. How does Nintendo address that issue?
I'm not left handed, but the person who I borrowed the game from was, and she was quite disappointed that she was unable to play the game that she paid for. I initially thought it was funny, but then, what a waste of money.
If you're left handed, don't buy this game, haha.
The graphics are pretty good. I was impressed. It's a 2D game in a 3D world, and it feels natural to navigate through the city by web slinging.
The sound is kinda campy, but the voice acting from Toby McGuire is spot on. It's snarky and Spidy says oddball stuff at the right moments in the gameplay.
The only really complaint about Spider-man 3 is the repetitiveness. It's run, fight, run, fight, run, rescue, run, fight. On to the next level: run, fight, run, fight, rescue, run, fight. There are just over 20 chapters in the story, all consisting of a combination of run, rescue, and fight. It was like playing all of those CAPCOM games from the early nineties like "Final Fight".
There's also a gameplay mode called the "race", which consist of webslinging across the neighborhood looking for floating orbs (no reason is given for why Spidy is looking for orbs). There is a 5 second (yes, second) counter that starts and Spidy has to reach the first orb. The counter resets, and Spidy has to reach the next orb. There are usually 20 orbs in a neighborhood, and if you miss one, you start the whole thing over. Missing an orb is easy, and since you are given only 5 seconds to find it, you could restart the same level many times. I know this game mode was thrown in to offset the "Beat 'em up" theme of the rest of the game, but couldn't they think of something more original?
Good deal and a great buy!

The game looked as though it was pulled from a dog's mouth, teeth marks all over it and it would not work..That's what I get for buying something used I guess. Call me a sucker!!!Published 11 months ago by Amazon Customer
This game keeps her occupied for hours. She enjoys it and has a lot of fun playing it. I think she may have it mastered already but not sure.Published on May 14, 2014 by Mr. JD
He says he likes that you can climb walls all the times, and swinging around is fun. I like the graphics but think they should have used the traditional black spider-man outfit.Published on February 12, 2014 by Sabastian78
My 8 year old son was skeptical at first and struggled with the controls, but that's because he skipped the initial tutorial on how to play. Read morePublished on December 28, 2010 by Marie from GA
