For Funzies here's the old Spider-man wiki page before I started working on it.

Story

Venom has returned to New York to infect the city with an army of symbiotes. S.H.I.E.L.D. has quarantined Manhattan to prevent the invasion from spreading. As a result, the entire city is cut off from the outside world. Spider-Man has to work with both heroes and villains from the Marvel Comics universe to track down Venom and stop the invasion before he himself is consumed by the symbiote attached to him. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is based completely on the Marvel Comics and is not related to any movie. The game features a host of popular Marvel Comics characters, including Kingpin, Luke Cage, Mary Jane Watson, Venom, Vulture, and Wolverine.  

Gameplay
Venom Wolverine? What will these kids think of next?




The game is set in the mainstream Marvel Comics universe. Like its predecessors Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3 and Ultimate Spider-Man, the game allows free-roaming action. Prior to release, Shaba Games stated that they wanted to blend web slinging and combat together to make this Spider-Man game, unlike any other to date. As part of this, players are able to customize and upgrade Spider-Man's aerial and ground combat abilities. 

As a result of being infected by the Venom symbiote, Spider-Man has a black suit similar to that of Venom's, rather than the enhanced costume seen in Spider-Man 3. During the course of the game the player can instantaneously swap between the red and black suits with the press of a button, regardless of being in the air, running, or in combat. The two suits represent the player's skills and moral allignment.

The red suit gameplay involves speed and heavy use of web-based attacks. The black suit, on the other hand, embraces strength rather than speed. Use of this suit allows players to use symbiote based attacks such as springing tendrils from the suit to smash enemies. This suit also allows the player to perform such feats as lifting cars in the air and throwing them at opponents. In addition, players can actually swim instead of either dying or climbing out of the water immediately.

Depending on which suit the player uses most, the city will begin to see Spider-Man as either a hero or a rebel. This moral allignment will not determine which tasks Spider-Man takes on; instead it determines whom his allies will be for any given task. Should the city see Spider-Man as a rebel he will team up with villains to destroy Venom, but if the city sees Spider-Man as a heroic savior he will team up with other well known heroes to stop the invasion of New York City. The decisions the player makes will result in consequences, be it for good or evil. These decisions will determine the outcome of the game.
 

Other Versions

The DS and PSP versions of the game are Castlevania Style Platformers, featuring a large 2.5D world to Explore.
 
 
Here's my 2,321 worth of submission, incomplete and I already see some stuff I need to fix.
 Don't click the spoiler, its just a time capsule for me to remember my tactical nuke getting submission.
