How many people liked Spider-Man 2

Solely on the strength of the swinging alone? Personally, I thought everything outside of the swinging was crap. The missions were dull, the fighting really bad, the even the races weren't any good for some reason. It's hard to say since I haven't played the game in ages, but everything outside of the movement system and a few collectibles were totally terrible. 
That sound about right?

I loved that game. Swinging was amazing which made everything else amazing. I used sound logic when forming this argument.

Movie yes.

@Afroman269: Considering this is under the game page for Spider-Man 2, I think it's implied we're talking about a game.

I know. I'm here to just tell you that I liked the movie.

Great movie. 
Great game. 
The game had a lot of flaws, but like Just Cause 2 it was easy to overlook them in favour of the joy of "stupid shit you can do".

Hmm.. I must be the minority here because I thought the movie and the game both sucked hard

I was young when I played it, so I didn't know anything was bad back then. 
Sure, I liked it.

I hate to bump an old thread, but I couldn't resist it; I bought this game shortly before the third movie came out, and I LOVED it.  
It had flaws, but I could overlook them.

I loved it. I played it way more than anybody should play a spiderman game cuz i'd just swing around the city.

Loved the swinging, but what really sold me was the way you capture Mysterio.

I loved the movie, and I actually kinda liked the game, but I only played the PSP version, as I was really, really desperate for a good PSP game. Wasn't bad, though.

This guy! I can not believe that Ryan hates the swing physics in it.

Oh, the game... Never played it.

OP nailed my feelings. The swinging felt incredible and was fun for hours at a time. Now it's too simplified in games and feels super canned, like you have no degree of control. MS2 was like a web slinging simulator.
I wanna see superhero games go the sim route. The "if this was real, this is what it would be like on a controller" path.
If you didn't play a dual thumbstick version, you played the wrong version.

Spider-Man 2 was the best movie and game in their series.

I thought the movie sucked, even though it seemed to be the highest praised movie of the series. I never played the game, but from the reviews I read, I always had the impression that the swinging mechanics were great, and everything else was pretty lousy.
