Shattered Dimensions was pretty fun, albeit kinda restrictive and short. Edge of Time was awful dreck, and I never played ASM1 game, but heard it was pretty decent.

If someone could make a good Spiderman game, man that would be great.

Shattered Dimensions is fucking LEGIT

@korwin: Spiderman 2 was pretty cool. And what was the one where you could dimension hop? Shattered Memories? Or was that a kingdom hearts thing. Anyway that one was decent.

Just make the web-swinging great and I'm in.

I don't know if I'm being tricked again but... The game doesn't look awful. Also, isn't calling SM2 "pretty cool" giving it too much credit?

Edited by HatKing

Wait. I thought Kraven was a bad guy.

@juggaloacidman: Spiderman 2 was a great game. Probably the only truly great Spiderman game. So...no.

The last one actually wasn't bad either. No one gave it a shot because it's a licensed game, but it's basically Arkham City with swinging.

Steve Blum?

Aww. Deep down I was hoping it would be called "Another Spider-Man Game".

@yummylee: one of my favorite games as a kid. Must have beaten it half a dozen times and unlocked a ton of the costumes. Never got to playing the sequel though. Ah, the memories....

Yup, same. I don't think I ever actually owned it, but that I instead rented it like every week. I do remember playing the sequel too, but there's not as much as I can remember about that one, beyond it being really hard I think. Though the original I was, like you, absolutely obsessed with, and managed to unlock just about everything.

It's been long enough for me. I'm up for another Spider-Man game.

Also, they really need to bring back the web zip attack thing from Web of Shadow. What an awesome, fun, illogical, and Spider-Man-esque ability.

Posted by Solh0und

I definitely want another Web of Shadows. That game was fun.

Posted by SunBroZak

Amazing Spider-Man was pretty good, for a Spider-Man game. Sadly this looks like near identical to that game, down to the animations of the attacks and web swings. Can't say I'm very hopeful for this one.

I think the previous game Beenox did wasn't that bad. It was pretty OK in my opinion. It had some great ideas to make the web slinging more fluid, although I had issues with the fact that webbing didn't have to attach to buildings. The bullet-time effect you could trigger to perform those typical Spidey landings was a great addition, so I'm curious how they have progressed since then.

Just sayin' old Spidey needs his Arkham Asylum.

Neversoft's Spider-Man game was great even if the web-swinging was a bit simple. Treyarch's Spider-Man: The Movie was okay for a licensed game, Bruce Campbell's narration was great and everything else was okay. Treyarch's Spider-Man 2 has probably the best swinging controls in any game, campaign wasn't great but super fun to swing around. Ultimate Spider-Man was okay, they simplified the controls a bit too much but the campaign was decent.

Everything else I can't bring myself to finish, the bar for a good Spider-Man game is way too low these days.

I hope they don't try to copy Batman Arkham Asylum combat style. Spiderman had a similar style to AA, but to be a straight copy of what AA did would probably not have good results.

Be your own game Spiderman

Aww. Deep down I was hoping it would be called "Another Spider-Man Game".

I think that's Activision's internal name for it

Posted by paulunga

I hope they didn't show the next-gen version, because some parts of that video (most obviously the enemy goons) looked like a higher-res PS2 game.

If there is one thing I can't forget from Ryan Davis doing a quick look it is that you have to pronounce it as THE AMAZING spiderman.

Edited by Morningstar

This one has Kraven in it though. Don't mess with Kraven.

Almost every game that comes out on a console/PC as well as a handheld turns out to be terrible. I'm still hoping this will be good, though. The last Spiderman game I liked was that one on PS1 and N64.

If they could just slap a spiderman skin on infamous styled gameplay I'd be happy.

Crazy that Beenox keeps making these.

Posted by billyok

My roomate's friend makes $35,000 a year at Beenox. He has been working 16-hour days six to seven days a week since 2009 making the same Spider-Man game over and over. Check This Out ... www.activision.com

Interesting premise.

Edited by firecracker22

Hmmm. Not sure if Kraven being Peter's mentor works for me. I mean, I'm sure some may point towards Ra's being Bruce's mentor in Batman Begins, but that worked for me because there was always a surrogate father/son dynamic to them.

It could be interesting, though.

@masonl87: I thought it was rather good. The only thing I didn't like was that no one from the movies was in it.

Edited by HerbieBug

Spiderman 2 for xbox/ps2. That was the good one. Rip off the controls and physics from that, make another game around them, you win the prize.

I swear to god if this game has fucking webshots that connect to the moon or to clouds or whatever, I will be pissed. You let that half-assery into a Spidergame you have automatically disqualified yourself for the prize. D:

Posted by Elwoodan

Man, I really like Steve Blum.

Posted by LarryDavis

I feel like every time someone says Spider-Man 2 was good, it should be auto-filtered to "its web-swinging mechanics were great".

Because god damn the actual missions sucked.

Posted by Blannir

I really enjoyed the first Amazing Spiderman game so I'm looking forward to this. While the web swinging was one of the most simplified yet it was kinda nice to just hold a button and swing around with ease plus the combat was a nice take on the Arkham style.

Posted by ajroo

What was the weird blue guy at the end? Is that supposed to be Jamie Foxx as Electro? It looked like Dr Manhattan's and Raiden's from Mortal Kombat, love child. Now, afterwards, i keep thinking there was something fish-like about him, too.....but my imagination sometimes goes kablooey this late at night.

Nightmares here i come......

Is Kraven even on the cards for the new movie? I haven't been paying attention.

I was wondering, do Beenox take feedback from players? Listen to fans? Any kind of social media interaction? Or are they stuck year in, year out with their heads down just making the next Spiderman game for god knows what reason?

YES, that game was great.

Posted by NarficAcid

@larrydavis: Then may I say...as an admitted Spiderman 2 fanboy..."Spiderman 2 had outstanding web-swinging mechanics hampered by a obviously rushed and ill thought out story mode." However, I've clocked in about 70 hours with that game swinging around New York and stopping random crimes as Spidey. When I had a rough day at work, I'd come home and unwind by doing some virtual good.

That game probably saved my sanity the summer of '09. It's just a pity that "completing" that game was a pain in the ass. There are still times I refer to the final story mission when talking to people about bad game design.

Posted by LackingSaint

Spider-Man 2 is the true predecessor to Just Cause 2, as far as i'm concerned. Have hope for this one, because there's no reason a Spider-Man game couldn't be pretty great if they put some real time and effort into it.

Posted by firsttenminutes

I would call it "SLIDERMAN-the web of boredom". Since SPIDERMAN is not SPIDERMAN anymore I have a feeling that Justin Bieber works under the mask. Since the loss of creative contribution by amazing director Sam Raimi this franchise can´t be saved.

Posted by Magicnerd

The problem with these Spider-man games is that they aren't really going anywhere. We've been slinging around cities for ages now, and no new title really adds something extra. Graphics are always mediocre, mission structure pretty much unchanged, mechanics pretty standard. Nothing really warrants another one of these coming out from an artistic/creative point of view. The only reason it happens is the strong franchise name.

The premise is interesting but I could give a rat's ass about the story if the swinging still happens in mid-air and webs hook on to nothingness. How has every game since spider-man 2 managed to get swinging so much worse? Oh yeah, the guy who designed the mechanic left and is doing kickstarter and treyarch went to call of duty.
