Everything that I've read/seen has gotten me pretty pumped. The last few Spider-Man games were alright, but they got repetitive fast and I feel that the fact they needed to tie into the films was a problem as well. I think that this game could really be great and possibly be a sleeper hit, especially since it's coming out on Oct. 21st (Such a ridiculous Fall lineup this year). I was wondering if anyone else is excited for this game...

Well, i really can't see how Web Of Shadows will turn out to be, since SpiderMan 3 was a huge failure and this is one could be considered as a follower , same developer , its on all consoles and stuff.

#3 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

You do know that this isn't being developed by the same guys who did Spider-Man 3...

I'm pretty excited about this. I feel like it being a story independant of the movies will make it a lot better plot-wise. Gameplay, I'm hopeful, because this game is not developed by the same people who made Spider Man-3, and hopefully they've seen the massive failure that that team made and don't want to repeat it.

Let us pray for a new engine.

I am since I'm a huge Spidey fan, I'm just praying for no crazy repetitive gameplay and missions. But I wished they did something more like Ultimate Spider-Man, which IMO is still the best Spidey game out there.

Here is a trailer to show it's awesomeness as well!

I take it that Wolverine will be playing a large role in this game?
#9 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

From what I've read he seems to have a decent role in the game. And just to let you know (I see that you're new) ...you should really delete a video if you're going to quote a post that includes a video.

#10 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

From what i've seen, it looks like expanded Spider-Man 2 gameplay but without hte need to really parallel the films so they have more room to move. I just wish they had got Christopher Daniel Barnes from the Spider-Man cartoon to do Spidey's voice.

Not really, but I hear that it's looking good. I haven't been interested in Spiderman in a long time.

#12 Edited by Kazona (3058 posts) -

I'm very intersted in this game, yea. At first I was meh about it when I found it that it was another spidey vs symbiote game, but after reading more about it and finding out that the main focus is on combat this time instead of the whole "look you can swing around manhattan!" I'm definitely psyched about it.

Oh and from what I understand it depends on the choices that you make which other marvel characters will play a signifcant role.

Treyarch developed Spider-Man 3 and they are working on Web Of Shadows too including two other devs.
#14 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

I think it's sad that this looks like the first good Spider-Man game in a while, yet it will likely be lost in the crowded day of Oct 21st. Far Cry 2, Fable 2, LBP, Bioshock (PS3)...not to mention you have Dead Space, Saints Row 2 and Socom: Confrontation the week before and plenty more after.

I'm hoping but I don't want to get hopes so high I'm could be very disappointed.

#16 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

I've learned to never be hopeful for Spiderman games.

#17 Posted by Ryan_ (174 posts) -

i'm just excited that they said it is completely based on the comic. so if it has any tiny crumb of movie reference, i am throwing it into a dumpster

No, Shaba games is working on the PS3/360 version and they have the other developers working on the game for the other consoles. Treyarch has a minimal role, I believe.

I'm mad excited for this game, I hope it doesn't turn out like crap.

From what I have read, apparently Wolverine will either be your ally or enemy based on your decisions during the game. We'll see how that turns out, eh?

Well from the trailers it shows Wolverine working with you, but also fighting against you after being taken over with the symbiote. I really think it would have been awesome if he had a huge role in the game and the story had full 2-player co-op. I really love co-op! :)

Ehhhh, I'm not much a fan of sandbox co-op. Me thinks it is better on paper than in practice.
#21 Posted by Jayge_ (10222 posts) -

The release period really fucks over any chances of me getting it (besides as a gift in December), but the combat looks greatly interesting, and fucking fun :-/

#22 Posted by BiggerBomb (6944 posts) -

October 21 is unfortunatly the defacto release date for every game this holiday season...

Fallout 3, Far Cry 2, Web of Shadows, Fable 2 (for those who for whatever reason care about it,) etc...

I'm going to only be able to get one of these games at launch and wait for the rest for Christmas. I'm thinking I'm going to get Far Cry 2 as my pre-Christmas game. I'm more excited for Fallout 3 but as a jr. in highschool I don't really have time to commit to an RPG. :(

Far Cry 2 still looks bad ass, though! :D

#23 Posted by atejas (3057 posts) -

Not sure if want.....

#24 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

It does suck that so many games are coming out between Oct. 14th and Oct. 29th...I would love to get a shitload of games, but I can't (though I'm still getting a shitload). Web of Shadows should make for a good rent though.

#25 Posted by BiggerBomb (6944 posts) -

I'm going to wait until Fallout 3, Far Cry 2, and Web of Shadows are all reviewed here before I make my decision. I doubt Web of Shadows will out rank F3 and FC2 but I might as well wait to see. I don't want to make an uninformed purchase.

#26 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

Well they are all very different games so it's really more about preference when deciding which game to get.

#27 Posted by suneku (2997 posts) -

I have a feeling I'm going to like Lego Batman way more then this game at this moment.

#28 Posted by Vlademir (1029 posts) -

We can only hope.

#29 Posted by Nik_NYG (558 posts) -

That game is gonna be delayed a couple months.

I hope not, but I wouldn't be suprised by this. The game hasn't even been rated by the ESRB and no new coverage has been released in a long time. /cry

I don't think I'll feel that way, but I am really looking forward to Lego Batman as well. I haven't kept up to date on the game's details, but I hope it has full online co-op!

The last good Spider Man game was Spider Man 2, I don't have high hopes for that game even if it turns out good I'll not buy on release, October 21st will be very busy day.
#34 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

I'm one of the most hopeful guys here and I won't be buying it either. As good as I think it looks, I also know that there are other games I'd rather play and a game like this might not have the most replay value.

I remember that feeling like a toned down Spidey 2. Not to mention I finished it on the day I got it without even trying to.

Woah, woah, woah...relax. Make love, not war. It's probably odd that I didn't find Spider-Man 3 to be awful...or Friend of Foe. I didn't find them great, but I didn't think they were absolute crap either.

I'm pretty sure BiggerBomb is being ironical. 

But, yeah, Ultimate Spider-Man was definitely inferior to Spider-Man 2.  The developers nerfed the swinging mechanic a good amount, and the combat just didn't stick.  Plus, once you unlocked Venom as a playable character, there was nothing to do but get shot at. 

*shrug*
#40 Posted by pause422 (6169 posts) -

I agree the trailer looks good...and the visuals for a spiderman game actuually looking good is a new as well, but until some serious gameplay is shown, or more so when it comes out and is reviewed..I'm really not holding hope high just because it is a spiderman game mostly...still I'm sure it will be the best one, even if it does disappoint.

#41 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

The videos with combat in them have looked good to me and I've heard many comparisons to the combat of God of War...which is a pretty nice comparison.

Venom was such a cop out. One thing I particularly hated was the way you could die after getting shot by the police. I know that in pretty much every video game ever, your character has to die and if they never, there would be plenty of complaints about how it is too easy, but Venom is a monster and monsters don't die in such petty ways.

All this Spidey talk is making me want to pull out my Genesis and play some Maximum Carnage! I loved that game back in the day.

I have never held you in as high a regard until now. 

God bless you for referencing that game. 
#47 Posted by Epic_Hero7 (28 posts) -

I'll probably rent it eventually.
I liked the air combat stuff they talked about and the seamless combo transitions you could make.
Hopefully they stick to their word.

Edit: I'm keeping this thread alive, if I can. Web of Shadows looks promising and I'm doing my part to keep peeps (yeah, I said peeps. what are you going to do about it?!) informed.
#50 Posted by sarahsdad (1074 posts) -

I'm also really looking forward to this game. I love even the idea of character choices that have an effect on the rest of the game, and the fact that it's a Spiderman game makes me want it that much more.
