Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

In "Spider-Man: Edge of Time," Spider-Man faces one of his greatest challenges ever - saving Spider-Man. Developed by Activision-owned studio Beenox, Spider-Man: Edge of Time challenges the player to take on the roles of both classic Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 to correct a time stream gone awry and prevent a catastrophic future brought on by the early and untimely death of Peter Parker. "Spider-Man: Edge of Time" is a focused, action-packed adventure set in two connected and evolving timelines, from the contemporary times of the Amazing Spider-Man to the corrupted future world of Spider-Man 2099, against the backdrop of a rich, tightly crafted narrative by acclaimed Marvel veteran Peter David (co-creator of the comic book series Spider-Man 2099). The game features all-new "cause-and-effect" gameplay, where players will see how the immediate and sometimes unexpected effects of their actions as one Spider-Man changes the timeline of the other Spider-Man.

I think alot of us loved last year's SHATTERED DIMENSIONS. Yes, it wasn't an open-world game and the story was pretty silly, but the presentation was top-notch and the variety of the levels made it truly fun. I'm certain that Activison and Beenox identified the two main themes in terms of criticism for SHATTERED DIMENSIONS: the story was weak and most gamers loved Spider-Man 2099 the most. As a character, because of his cool look and futuristic world, he almost works better as a video game character than he ever did as a comic book character. So now we have EDGE OF TIME, which gives us a really great story and 2099 as basically the lead character.

Man, they really overreacted.

The entire game takes place in an office building. Yes, this is a Spider-Man video game in which you never, EVER even see the skyscrapers of New York City. The entire game is really short, about eight hours, and because there are no changes in environment and enemies, you go from the four distinct gameplay styles of SHATTERED DIMENSIONS to what is basically one style here. Amazing and 2099 pretty much play exactly the same in this game because their surroundings are the same, and that's really a shame. The game chooses to not have menus between levels, as you go right from one level to the next seamlessly, which does add a cinematic feel but also highlights the sameness in the levels even more. Each chapter is indistinguishable. The entire game really feels like one huge eight hour level. In fact, I was on Chapter 5 before I realized that I wasn't on the first level anymore! I just figured the environment was going to eventually change. The upgrades seem to have been lessened from the last game as well, and combat just doesn't feel as fun as it did in SHATTERED DIMENSIONS.

One of my favorite parts about some previous Spider-man games was the sandbox-style gameplay, and webslinging around the city. That was completely removed in favor of dark corridors that all look the same, and almost zero ability to websling freely. You can't even webzip wherever you want--you need to click on the predetermined locations, which leads to my first major gripe about this game:

Lack of Freedom: You get led around by the nose, with no freedom about how you will complete an objective. There are even glowing trails of orbs that add up to upgrades, which you need to follow around if you're going to find the next challenge. I often felt like I was playing Sonic the Hedgehog at times.
Fighting: The fights are repetitive and irritating. Nearly every room you go in has dozens of robotic soldiers which are surprisingly hard to kill, and when you do manage to kill them all, a new group teleports in, making you feel like all your previous work was useless. I got sick of it after an hour, and started completing my objectives by dodging the enemies whenever I could. Also, the developers must have been under the impression that "more is more", because every time you walk in a room there are literally dozens of enemies. I can't think of many times when I had less than eight guys trying to kill me. That's fine, but all the special combos seem to take a few seconds to charge, and you're not able to use them when someone shoots you the second you stand still. The shooting robots were annoying too. No matter how much you jumped, twisted, and dived, they would hit you. They never miss. Several times I even got shot through a wall.
Missions: Some of the missions you have to complete are completely ridiculous.

It is a serious game the serious player. Lots of challenges and puzzles to achieve. I still have trouble completing and achieving all of the golden spiders. It is a tough game. I recommend it. Buy it.

the good
plot is very good. voice acting is very good.
I stayed thru the whole game cause I'm a Spider-man fan & liked the story.
there are also tons of costumes to unlock which is awesome.
spidey & spidey 2099 were very cool. had some slick moves.
I liked that hall with all the suits & statues of classic enemies.

the bad
game seemed very rushed. enemies are mostly generic goons.
you can beat the game by tapping x over & over again
the whole game takes inside 1 building & everything looks the same.
the camera is also wayyyy to far to enjoy the combat
the combat itself was very dull.

*if you have a shattered dimensions saved & start a new game with it,
you automatically unlock a ton of costumes in this game . check gamefaqs for more.

there is some replay value in collecting all the gold spiders & challenges but the main campaign/story mode, is wayyy too easy. on hard mode it is much better though but still easy.

i would give it 2 stars but I like the plot & collecting items.

If you played the previous Spider-Man game Shattered Dimensions this one will probably be just as entertaining though this time you can only play two different Spider-men instead of four. I did enjoy the game greatly and it gave me what I wanted for the most part, the ability to play Spider-Man swinging around beating up Bad guys and getting to fight iconic characters as well but I also enjoy the ability of free roaming that you got with the other Spider-Man games like Web Of Shadows or the Spider-Man 2&3 games but still the game overall is still fun to play regardless.Now I'm just waiting to get the newest Spider-Man game to add to my game collection and I'll be more then happy.
