5.0 out of 5 stars ... and I'm a DC fanboy!, August 12, 2011
This review is from: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Being able to play as different incarnations of the webslinger was probably the #1 reason why I tried this game at all. The graphics were fun, each Spiderman had his own 'style'. Spider Sense was given its fair shake: helpful but not game breaking. Controls took no time at all to become accustomed to. There were a few tech issues, mostly awkward camera angles, and they could make finding all the extras a bit of a headache.

The plot is predictable. Mystic McGuffin breaks into separate pieces and it's up to Spiderman... I mean four Spidermen to save the day. We get the Amazing Spiderman, Noir Spiderman, Ultimate Spiderman, and (my fave) Spiderman 2099. Each Spiderman has their own costumes and special abilities, combat moves too, so each of the Spidermen have that something 'extra' that makes them fun to play. Back when I read Marvel, SM 2099 was my fave, but herein, Noir SM is pretty awesome - his missions require stealth and tactics where the others tend to punch and throw disgusting amounts of webbing. We also get an awesome assembly of Spiderman's rogues gallery - from the classic Sandman to the newer female Doctor Octopus (who has ten appendages, go figure...), Ultimate Electro, Deadpool - which is hand's down the most fun you'll have playing any level - and even Juggernaut. I don't want to list them all, but you end up playing the game for the same reason you read Spiderman, of any dimension: the villians.

The voice actors sound very familiar - I have heard most of them perform for one Spiderman project or another. Music's top notch. The game as a whole feels very cinematic. And that also means you should watch through all the credits. At the end of the day, the game has next to no replayability, unless you want to finish missed challenges and unlock new swag. But it a fun ride through the past 15 or so years of Spiderman. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a few boxes of comics I need to dust off.
