Spider-Man Web of Shadows trailer

Spider-Man Web of Shadows trailer

Activision released this first trailer of Spider-Man : Web of Shadows. This time it's not a direct adaptation of one of the movies, so maybe there is hope for a quality product.

First Spider-Man game that's caught my interest in a long time. As long as Tobey Maguire stays far away from this project then I'll check it out.

If it's good i'm happy but it'll be a cold day in hell before that happens imo :)

actually looks good for a change

You really can't tell anything from that, so I'm not going to be one to call it good or anything

Don't rule out that this may be coming out merely because of the new Spiderman animated series, as it is a bit more along that style as far as how Spiderman looks

Also I guess I am in the minority that found the Spiderman movie adaptations on the good to decent end of movie based games

just as long as it is not another boring beat em up, it´s ok.

this game should be an adventure. The first Spiderman game for the psone is still the best by far.

I don't know about the quality. Being developed by the same guys who did Spidey 3 and we know how that turned out...

To be fair they don't have to rush the game to meet a movie deadline so if it is by the same developers as Spiderman 3 it doesn't necessarily mean that it'll be crap. (And to be fair to Spiderman 3 I've never even played it so I don't know if it's really as bad as some people have said.)

About the game

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog [url] so cool (20 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog hellblade and ryse both had way more basic combat that literally just centered around weak and strong attacks. there was nothing else there to play around with. (22 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and then you have the boy, who distracts, staggers and sets you up for more volleys. now compare that to hellblade or ryse...and you honestly can't see the difference? (25 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog then you've got the elements associated with the axe itself, where you can freeze enemies (and i assume other elements will be introduced later too) and do powered up elemental attacks (26 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog there seem to be a decent depth to the combat in god of war. with staggers, shield barges, slow mo air juggles, grabs, axe throws, and standard hacking. (28 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: if you think that looks like ryse then i really don't know what to tell you. doesnt look anything like ryse or hellblade to me outside of a camera angle. (29 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @alimokrane: agree, if the enemy variety is there as well it could be an awesome combat system, especially for an over the shoulder camera game. Camera does zoom out for larger fights btw (59 minutes ago)
