Take a look overhead--Spider-Man is arriving to the PlayStation
just in time. As the beloved photojournalist-cum-webslinger,
you'll freely explore New York's skyline, sewers, and hideouts
to fulfill several missions. Use Spider-Man's superhuman
strength to fight such notorious foes as Scorpion, Venom, and
Rhino. Use his spider abilities to spin webs (any size) to
disable and detain bosses, swing around buildings, and creep
along walls and ceilings. And thanks to your spider-sense,
you'll detect impending danger from a distance. There is no
wealth or fame at the end of this game, however; action is your
Whether you're a fan from the '60s or not even
remotely familiar with the Spider-Man comic, you will get caught
in his web. You'll see that despite its few flaws and the
limitations of the PlayStation hardware, Spider-Man is the best
based-on-a-superhero video game ever released.
A crime has been committed and (as often happens) our hero has
been framed. As the game progresses, you'll find that all is not
as it seems and that many of Spidey's enemies, including Venom,
Carnage, Mysterio, and Rhino, are all out to squash the Spider's
quest to clear his name. Fortunately, Spider-friends, such as
Daredevil, Human Torch, and Punisher, are here to help Spider-Man
and keep the story moving. Like the comics, ol' webhead can climb
most walls and ceilings, swing from rooftop to rooftop and, of
course, do whatever a spider can. With his constant webslinging
and acrobatic hand-to-hand fisticuffs, it's easy to feel that you
The characters and scenery are nicely re-created here by making
great use of the aging PlayStation's graphics. Spidey's ability
to climb walls and ceilings does present problems with camera
angles from time to time, occasionally making it tough to watch
Spidey as he fights his way through some of the game's levels.
While it can be frustrating, the overall camera work and graphics
of Spider-Man are still amazing. Also, Spider-Man's controls can
at times be less responsive and accurate than they should be, and
the music is surprisingly subdued and flat, but most true
believers can bear these problems until Spidey saves the day.
In fact, the gameplay is so good, most seasoned gamers will
devour the game in day or two, which makes Spider-Man a woefully
short game. Cherish the time you have in these red and blue
tights; this game is escapism at its best. --Mark Brooks
