Haven't heard anyone else discussing this on here in a while beyond the thread about the trailer. Anyway, I read IGN's horrible review before playing this and I was going into this game expecting the worst...far from it. While I agree that there are elements that can become quite repetitious, they mostly involve destroying a butt load of enemies with some sick ass moves and a seemless change between red and black costume with unique moves and abilities for each respectively. To be completely honest, the only thing I really can't stand about this game is the voice of spiderman. The story doesn't make sense? What exactly doesn't make sense? Venom has found a way to make the symbiote replicate via symbiote pods and the city is crawling after a while with some very creepy looking symbiote creatures varying in size and threat level. The sybiote always wants hosts and wants to reproduce sort of like the "Aliens" franchise but with dialogue for the main Alien. There is some really cool Spider sense features for identifying those who have been infected with the symbiote that I thought worked very well. Being able to call on other heroes or villians (depending on the decisions you make in the game determines whether you call on heroes or villains) to assist you in battle is a nice touch. However, I hear that this feature is only specific to PS3 and Xbox360 and that the Wii has a costume unlockable feat. to make up for it. Costumes for the Wii include Carnage and the Iron Spider costume as well as Ben Reilly (Scarlet Spider?), these are unavailable for 360 and PS3 apparently, although I cannot confirm this beyond what I've heard and read. There are some really slick looking abilities that each costume possesses that you should find enjoyable. Fighting on walls is SICK! There is something very creepy about seeing average looking citizens who have been infected crawling up buildings in arachnid type postures. I'm really enjoying this game so far, and I suggest anyone who's been influenced by IGN to stay away from it at least give it a rental and see what the fuss is about. I'm glad I did. I will be wary of IGN reviews from here on out as I thought this was a very unfair review with respect to what they complained about and what I have experienced. For those who are playing it, what do you think so far?
