The Spider-Man: Friend or Foe wiki last edited by Deathawk on 08/06/13 06:00PM View full history

Overview

This time they play as a team.

Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is a beat 'em up where Spider-Man has to team up with his enemies in order to stop an unknown nemesis. You travel to typical locations such as: Tokyo, Transylvania and Nepal. You fight through each level, taking down ever phantom in your way, and then defeat one of your brainwashed foes, which will add them to your team. You gain tech coins during each level, which can then be used to upgrade each character's abilities. The combat looks good and is rather simple, thus making the game very accessible. Friend or Foe features full 2-player co-op, but disappointingly is offline only. The game is also rather easy, which can be good for casual gamers, but will inevitably leave most gamers wanting more of a challenge.

Plot

The Green Goblin.

The basic plot of Friend or Foe is that the meteor which brought Venom's symbiote broke up in the Earth's atmosphere and five pieces were scattered across the world. Nick Fury sends Spider-Man on a mission to collect these five pieces, but finds the task more difficult because his foes have all been put under some form of mind control. As Spider-Man fights all of his foes and releases them from the mind control, they agree to help Spider-Man on this particular mission. Eventually you find out who is behind it all and of course, you stop them and save the day.
