Though the story over-all is better, it's also a lot shorter and should be completed in a coupole of days (if not less).
The graphic style is very different to Spider-Man 2, being the style used for the Ultimate Spider-Man comics (obviously). The character designs are unique and superb - particularly in the cut-sequences. The cityscape - this time incorporating Queens (though no Roosevelt, Ellis or Liberty island) - is also far more detailed than Spider-Man 2, especially at ground level. However it is also more cartoon-like and you don't get the same feel of flying through the city streets as before. The streets are narrower and the buildings shorter, and the swing-speed is also a lot slower making roaming less fun.
The control method is simpler and easier to get to grips with than previously, but the controls are less responsive making the chase/race missions in particular very frustrating at times. And the lack of a charge-jump and aerial acrobatics don't help. Nor does the camera, which has an even worse habit of throwing itself in random directions than the last one did.
The side missions are pretty much the same as before (i.e. break-ins, purse-snatchings, armoured car hold-ups, gang warfare, people falling from buildings or in need of a hospital, etc.) with some missions having two separate aspects (e.g. stopping an assault and then having to get the victim to hospital), but all the missions appear at random - as opposed to some coming from a witness' calls for help - and without any time-limits.
On the whole, this is prettier to look at and has a better story and script than Spider-Man 2, but simply isn't as much fun to play.
So on to the game...
In the past there have been some horrible superhero games...and I mean horrible. Any of you play the X-Men for the original nintendo? Ugh. I know that it's an early game but when you essentially get a graphically ramped up version of that in X-men Legends, it's kinda dissapointing. Now I now everyone raves and loves X-Men Legends, but it wasn't exactly my radioactive cup of tea. With the greater technology coming out, the capabilites of free roaming in hugely expansive enviornments is becoming a mainstay of the video game world.And something like X-men ledgends kinda lacks that, but it's something that spider-man games recently have had in spades.
The game is almost totally immersive. You can go nearly anywhere as the webhead and never really have to run into any invisible walls that take you out of the experience. There is the instances during missions where you can't stray too far, but if that didn't happen people would be flying all over the place trying to keep on track and lose the mission. Anyway, not the point. The point is that the game is an excellent piece technology wise. Aisde from free roaming capability, it retains the TreyArch webswing system from the previous spider-man game which was so popular.Read more ›

Not the best Spider-Man game. The main highlight is being able to play as venom. The story is very short and the combat is extremely basic. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Chaz
