REVIEW: SPIDER-MAN 3 (NINTENDO DS)

When it came to Spider-Man movie tie-in games, Nintendo handhelds always seemed to get the least impressive versions. On the Game Boy Advance quality went on an upgrade trend from parts one through three, however all games were at best above average side-scrolling action games that, like in the case of the “open-world” portions of Spider-Man…

REVIEW: SPIDER-MAN 3 (GAME BOY ADVANCE)

When you look at the time line of the Spider-Man movie handheld tie-in games, it’s a pretty interesting one. When Spider-Man (2002) came out, there was only the Game Boy Advance, and it was initially that way for Spider-Man 2 until later in 2004 and into early 2005 when the Nintendo DS, N-Gage and PSP launched to stores. In…

REVIEW: SPIDER-MAN 3(PS2/PSP/Wii)

NOTE: GAME PRIMARILY PLAYED ON PSP WITH CHECKS DONE ON THE PS2 AND Wii VERSIONS Like the first and second Spider-Man films, there was big expectations for Spider-Man 3 the video game given the leap in quality from Spider-Man (2002) to 2004’s Spider-Man 2. Even though the at the time next generation version of Spider-Man 3 on PS3 and Xbox 360 was…

Introduced as a villain in the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man, Morbius has over…

WHAT’S WORSE: SPIDER-MAN 3 VS. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

Sorry about all of the Spider-Man themed articles as of late, it’s just that after the news last month about Sony leasing Spider-Man to Marvel Studios I went Spidey crazy and just started playing games I had never tried before (like Spider-Man 3) and replaying ones I had (The Amazing Spider-Man). While it might be more appropriate to…

REVIEW: SPIDER-MAN 3 (XBOX 360)

Leading up to 2007, Activision could really do no wrong when it came to the Spider-Man license. After a strong start in 2000’s Spider-Man, they built upon that game’s foundation in a PSOne sequel Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro and the first Spider-Man movie game on the sixth generation of consoles before once again revolutionizing how we all played Spider-Man games with Spider-Man…
