    Spiderman Web of Shadows - Amazing Allies Edition

    Activision already has made players look like idiots when Spiderman 2 for PC and Spider-Man 3 for the PS2 came out.
    Everywhere, even in the official page, you found pics and videos that promised a high quality game, much like the consoles version.
    The same has happened now.
    You might say
    -"No man! PS2 version will never be like PS3/XBOX 360!
    Yes, I know.

    But atleast I was expecting some quality, not a port of the psp version. Which is an awful side-scroller game, pretty much an upgrade of every single Spider-Man Beat 'em up I've played on the SNES which is a lot to say, because Maximum Carnage is one of the best Spidey games I've played, from the music (which this one lack) to the cutscenes and the gameplay. , with none of the things we've seen in trailers so fighting is basically Square for punching, Triangle for kicking and X for jumping and that's it.
    - But check the name of the game! it says "Amazing Allies edition"
    That doesn't change a thing, it's not a bad game on it's own, but when you compared it to what they promised us, and what the PS2 can do when it comes to graphics and gameplay, it really boils my blood.

    Activision did it again, just like it fooled PC players, it fooled PS2 players.
    It fooled me, I didn't bought the game BTW, I found a review online.

    [​IMG]
    Yep, no free roam, no sweet assed web-slingin' action fighting.

    Oh and guess what, you can beat the game in 45 minutes and the only thing you get is "Congratulation, you saved Manhattan" WTF?!

    What's happening it's so obvious it makes me angry.
    They want to kill the PS2, early.
    "They" is almost every big name in the Videogame industry.
    Almost all the great platformers had a half assed version for the Wii and PS2 (Alone in the Dark, I hate you!).
    It's no secret, it's actually (evil) marketing.

    So bye bye, my beloved Playstation, enjoy sitting there gathering dust in a little box like my SNES, and hope that one day I'm bored I might pull you out.
    I'm getting a new gen next year, I'm such a hipocrit.

    The game industry is neglecting an 8 year old console that was replaced by a newer model almost 2 years ago?

    ZOMG scandal!

    That does suck about Spiderman, especially since Force Unleashed was like a baby version of the Big boys and it played very well.

    In that case, you better report Activision to the consumer electronics department of your local social services or a console cruelty prevention charity.

    No the sad thing is they did free roaming with the spider-man 3 psp game, so they could have done it again.

    No. What's a scandal is that the Dreamcast did. And WELL before it's time too.

    I'll let the PS2 die if they would release the PS3 at a reasonable price with full backwards compatibility. (say's the man who just spent $999 on a Cintiq)

    I'm not surprised about the PS2 version. The Spider-Man 3 PS2 and Wii versions promised the same gameplay as the other console versions along with exclusive villains and intuitive gameplay. What we got was a half-assed excuse for a game that took place in a city that claimed to be "Manhattan", only without the landmarks, crap gameplay, a short, broken story, etc, etc.

    If a game is exclusive to the PS2, I'll get it, but if it's also on a next-gen console, I'll get it for the 360. Same goes for the Wii. If a game is a Wii-exclusive, I'll buy, but if it's also on the 360, I'll get it for that.

    Let's not turn this into a format war thread.
    There are lots of reasons to buy a PS3.

    I just wanted to point out that there is a Sam's Bundle for the Xbox coming out soon that looks like a real good value.
    $350 for a 60GB unit with Kung Fu Panda, Lego Indiana Jones and Guitar Hero 3 with a guitar?
    That's an awesome deal.
