The First 10 Minutes: Spiderman WoS

The First 10 Minutes: Spiderman WoS

Activision recently released Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, and here are the first 10 minutes of it in video form. Since the intro is a prologue, I also took the liberty to capture a video showing more of the city. The game is a classic Spidey game, so those who liked the movie-based games should be able to enjoy this.

Spidey sounds a bit like Jerry Seinfeld when he's screaming. I thought this game might be good, guess i was kinda wrong.

I guess the voice overs got to me. I am so used to hearing Toby and this new voice just doesn't fit him.

Please, help. What hardware needed to capture HD-video from Xbox360? I want to make my own videos, but don't know how.

kinda like the opening, was pretty cool. cant say the game looks amazing tho, they're going in the right direction when it comes to combat, which is more then i can say for the other spiderman game. but overall it just looks a bit average. i'll give it a rental before completely condemning it tho.

After Spiderman 2, this series has been pretty much dead to me. I had a little sparkle of hope this might actually be another good Spiderman, but by the looks of it...not really.

So no matter where spidey is, he can grab even thin air to swing by? Strange

Looks terrible. Graphics are really outdated. How is it possible that a billion dollar franchise, isn't able to make a good spiderman game? Do they even care about quality?

Ultimate Spider-man was easily the best of the games. Not sure why SM2 gets so much attention, it had a huge city but it was very bland and there was almost nothing in it, the story wasn't done very well and most of the missions involved the same repetitive tasks. USM is exactly how a Spidey game should be done, it was perfect, even the voice acting was great.

I do think the combat looks like a massive improvement, but I can't stand the story, it seems to have been designed to appeal to the 12 year old fanboys.. Some of the trailers have been laughable. Enough Venom, please, he's not interesting in the slightest, there are FAR better Spidey storylines they could focus on.

And yes.. why did they bring back the magic swinging?

That's what I was thinking. Really, really strange.

best Spiderman to me is the first one on the psx, by far!
Commented on 2008-11-03 15:25:04
That voice acting is actually abysmal. You would've thought they'd put more effort into spiderman's voice but it seems like they saved the worst actor for the most important part.

The game didn't seem that bad, then again, it didn't seem that good either.

Yeah, its really really strange. I remember the previous Spiderman game wasnt like this, spidey didnt shoot his web into thin air.

You can't exactly stand in the middle of a park and shoot web and then swing out of there, it's really strange. It's like, you can't swing in open spaces, you need to be close to a tall structure, but the web still attaches to thin air when you use it.

(I haven't tried standing in the middle of a park, but as long as I was close to one it didn't work)

God the graphics look awful.

In the video, sometimes the web sticks to the building and it looks great when spidey swings..then at times the web is bang on in the middle, stuck to thin air and he's swinging..

i keep notices it and it's abit annoying..

The graphics aren't as bad as i thought, i thought the game looks quite good.. -_-'

I really like the fighting, you web to an enemy and punch, kick and then web to another enemy in mid air and another fight..you can just chain.

I wish they did another ultimate spiderman game, i really enjoyed that and spiderman 2..

The style was very comicy, first scene itself you got venom busting into a bar and pissing off wolverine ;P

Spiderman meets mortal combat? wft are those attacks?..
Commented on 2008-11-06 20:41:45
Wow, that intro is majestic! What is that piano piece of music?
Commented on 2008-11-06 20:53:55
What is everyone going on about? The graphics look great to me...is it the ground textures? I don't know, the Spidey model looks very next-gen. And so does Venom. But then, I'm here on Gamersyde, which was built on graphic whores.
