The good: Most of the things wrong with the first Spider-Man title have been fixed. The bad: It didn t help much.
When web-slinging your way as Spidey from building to building is the highlight of a new game, you may be in trouble. Granted, zipping around town is an absolute blast and the animation is fantastic eye candy, but in the end, the repetitive missions and disappointing fights with Doc Ock and Mysterio just added up to a middle-of-the-road title for me. Lack of online gameplay and horrible voice-acting at times cinched it. Even though it s probably the best comic book title out there, I would opt to rent this one before spending $50 to buy it.
