A 20TH ANNIVERSARY LOOK AT THE EXCLUSIVE COMIC BOOK GAMES OF THE GAMECUBE AND XBOX

It’s impossible to not look back on the year 2001 without thinking of the 9/11 tragedy. In but a moment, the world was changed forever when United Airlines Flight 93 struck the World Trade Center, taking countless lives and spawning a war that would steal even more. For many, an escape from the real world…

REVIEW: SPIDER-MAN 2 (XBOX ORIGINAL)

Neversoft’s Spider-Man and its Vicarious Vision’s developed sequel Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro were great first attempts at making the Spider-Man game that everyone dreamed of playing, but were held back by the limitations of the consoles that they were on. Spider-Man’s webs for example seemingly attached to the sky, there were more interior environments than exterior and you couldn’t…

WHAT’S BETTER: SPIDER-MAN (2002) VS. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Now that I’ve finally confirmed once and for all that Spider-Man 3 is inferior to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it’s not time to turn our attentions to what title is superior: Spider-Man (2002) or The Amazing Spider-Man. While both games share a common ground in that they’re products intended to tie into the release of a Spider-Man film, in particular the start…

TOP FIVE: SPAWN VIDEO GAMES

This week saw the launch of Spawn: Resurrection, an attempt by Image to inject life back into the character made popular in the 90’s by creator Todd McFarlane by bringing original Spawn Al Simmons back from the dead (undead?) and hiring writer Paul Jenkins (Marvel Knight’s Inhumans) to oversee the character’s new direction. Two Halloween’s ago I reviewed every Spawn…

REVIEW: SPIDER-MAN (2002) (XBOX ORIGINAL)

When it was released back in 2001, Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro was a respectable follow-up to 2000’s Spider-Man from Activision, but it didn’t do that much new than the game it built upon. What everyone was really looking forward to was Spider-Man’s debut on the sixth generation of consoles which was already announced to be the game that…

REVIEW: SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL (XBOX ORIGINAL)

NOTE: ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON COMICBOOKMOVIE.COM 06/14/2013 Superman: The Man of Steel is bit of an oddity when it comes to comic book based games, as it was published by a company that had the rights to both the animated and comic book side of the character. Publisher Atari also put out the “Apokolips” games based…

REVIEW: SPAWN: ARMAGEDDON (XBOX ORIGINAL)

NOTE: ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON COMICBOOKMOVIE.COM 10/29/2013 Compared to other comic book characters like say a Spider-Man or a Batman, Spawn has only appeared in five games, but there’s a fair amount of variety in that hand full of titles: traditional side-scrolling action games, a 3-D adventure/fighting game hybrid and a multi-player focused arena action game.…

REVIEW: THE PUNISHER (XBOX)

  Existing as I do now in the future, I can’t think of anyone I would rather make a Punisher videogame than Volition. This is the studio that put itself on the map for making EVERYTHING destructible in the Red Faction shooter franchise, and would eventually go on to make the crazy over the top…
