Spider-Man 2 – Consumer Guide

Gene Park's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Violence

Parents need not fear, Spider-man is here and is childproof. The videogame is no more(if not less) violent than any comic book at your local grocery store.

Fans of Spidey won't want to miss this one. The obligation to adhere to the movie's plot actually serves to bog down the pace of the game, but the game does take delicious turns into Spidey's comic mythology. Black Cat, and her voice actress, especially turn in a choice performance in the game.

Fans of free-form gameplay might be disappointed that the missions are more linear than it first appears to be. But free-form fans may want to pick up the game if onlyto see the most technically impressive large-scale environment in any videogame to datezero loading times and many of the buildings exactly where they would be in real life.

Fans of unlockable materials may frown at the lack of rewards for completing 100 percent of the game.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers may have a difficult time. Subtitles are not available. When cries for help do occur, a marker shows up on the map, but the audio clue is a much more immediate indicator.
