Spider-Man 2 DS Swings Into Stores March 22


ActivisionÂ’s Spider-Man 2 DS ($49.95) is only  loosely based on the super sequel to Spider-Man movie. So in the gameÂ’s 20 plus missions, Spidey takes on not only Doc OckÂ’s mechanized arms but Mysterio, Rhino and Black Cat as well. According to preview reviews by Shacknews “Spider-Man 2’s graphics are an impressive mix of 2D and 3D. As Spider-Man swings and springs through the city, the levels rotate as they scroll, which really adds a great feeling of depth to the action. Spider-Man 2 DS does an excellent job of mixing traditional gameplay elements with new touch-screen action. Spider-Man 2 DS is an excellent game that brilliantly uses the Nintendo DS’s touch-screen technology to emulate the feel of web-swinging.”  

 

However, 29 of their readers rated the game as “Pretty Bad” (although none of them took the time to write down their gripes.) Gamespot did write down their complaints, “Spider-Man 2 sure looks great, but it suffers from extremely frustrating level designÂ… the challenge here mostly just comes from having to work around lousy level designsÂ….and it doesn’t really take advantage of the dual-screen layout of Nintendo’s new portable, either.” Hey, J. Jonah Jameson, is that you behind all the bad press?
