I rented Web of Shadows from Blockbuster out of boredom and now I bitterly regret it. While I don't think the game is terrible, it fails to hold my attention. Everything about the game is repetitive, the story progression is the same pattern over and over. Kill however many number of dudes, report back to whoever you're serving, repeat. Even the boss battles are dull and generic, ending with a quick time event at the end of every one of them. It's also very buggy, and crashes regularly. I wonder if they even had people test the game, because it's feels so unpolished and in some cases, broken. For example, one time I hit the wrong button during a QTE and it resulted in the whole game freezing. Nice!
But the worst and most laughable part about the game is the horrible voice acting. Peter Parker sounds as though his balls haven't dropped, making each terribly written line hilarious to hear. It's actually the reason why I kept playing the game for a little bit.
Really, the only redeeming quality of the game is the gameplay, which does get old after a while.
