According to ESRB, this game contains: Violence
Parents will not have anything to worry about here. Spider-Man contains no blood, gore or excessive amount of violence. In fact, this is probably a title I would recommend as a good action game for anyone.
Spider-Man fans will definitely want to try this game, if only for a rental. It does justice to the movie and even, to some extent, the cartoon show. One should keep in mind that Spider-Man is a rather short game in length and this fact will often prevent people from actually purchasing a game.
Metal Gear fans might be interested in this title for its stealth missions. Although not nearly as sophisticated as the overall concept of Metal Gear, these levels are still worth a look for anyone craving espionage action.
Fortunately, this is a multi-platform game and anyone owning one of the next generation systems will be able to play Spider-Man.
