Featuring all the locations, villains and voices from the smash hit movie, Spider-Man 2 is as close as you can come to actually being the red and blue webslinger. Take one city; add one superhero. Bring them together and you have Spider-Man 2, the first 'free roaming' superhero game, where you can almost literally go anywhere and do anything in your daily crime-fighting life.
Want to just swing around the city? You can, enjoying realistic 'pendulum physics' which will take you higher than ever before. Fancy an acrobatic workout? Just try running over the rooftops, using your super-leap to take you higher, and your wall-crawling ability to scale buildings.
On your journey around the city you'll find hundreds of random events - from muggings to rescues - plus hidden bonuses and challenges that all add up to special awards. You'll also earn Hero Points, currency for upgrades that will help you in your quest to defeat Doctor Octopus.
Those upgrades include combos to help Spidey in combat, which has been fully revamped. Spidey can now lay the smackdown on his foes in mid-air, or use his web to throw them around, string them up from lampposts and much more. You can also use his Spider Sense to get a slow-motion view of proceedings, which'll help you dodge attacks as well as unlocking new combos.
For fans of previous games on the series you'll be pleased to see that Spider-Man 2's story doesn't limit itself to imitating the movie - villains from the comic such as Mysterio and Shocker make an appearance, and Spidey even gets to team up with the curvaceous Black Cat.
With the voice talents of the movie cast - including Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man - thrown in to top things off, Spider-Man 2 is simply the most authentic Spidey game yet.
- Take Spider-Man for a spin around a living, breathing New York City.
- All-new combat, swinging and Spider Sense gameplay.
- Featuring the full voice cast from Spider-Man 2, including Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and Alfred Molina.
- Hundreds of random encounters dotted around New York.
- Your chance to 'be' Spider-Man as never before!
While it isn't the prettiest game on the shelf, having the ability to free roam New York city is a blast and helps immerse you in the game. If you are a Spider-Man fan this is a definite must buy for your collection.
