    was shocked to have not seen a thread for this yet although maybe it hasn't been released in the states yet

    anyway i played it today and have some thoughts, the biggest problem i had was with the camera, often the camera moves ways to fast and to many times which makes the game fustrating, the position of the camera is also an issue cos it actually tips completely upside down when your walking on the ceiling (so it looks like your crawling normally) and makes it difficult to work out how to get to ground etc.


    also you have to play alot of missions, i'm not sure how to unlock the movie ones but i couldn't find any of them, instead i had to do boring missions about gang leaders, but there was one with the lizard where i had to get a picture of him (yes they have brought in a very dead rising pic element), it took me ages to work out what i had to do and another mission where i had to diffuse bombs, here you had to work out puzzles and press button combinations (i'm sure this would work well on the wii but not on other consoles)

    There were some great parts of the game, like J Jonah Jamesons scenes are awesome, and spiderman fans would love it, but after an hour of playing and getting no movie missions i found it rather fustrating and had to switch it off, i never really played spiderman 2 but i loved ultimate spiderman, and i think ultimate spiderman is better than this

    anyone else played it yet?

    It hasn't.

    It's 2007 and I am really ready for developers to overcome the "camera issues" of most 3D games. There is no reason why Spiderman 3 should have the same camera issues that the first Spiderman game on Playstation 1 had. NO REASON!

    I had plans to get it, I enjoy me some Spiderman games. Then my car broke and the bank has the 5 day (which being Wednesday means its a 7 day) "hold" on checks so I'm broke with a busted suspension on my car.

    The Videos I've seen make it look cool and I'm pretty used to the camera from recently playing Ultimate Spiderman so I'm prepared to deal with that. Also I enjoy unlocking alternate costumes and I'm sure they won't let me down with this one.

    Street date is tomorrow.
    So unless someone has broken that then it won't be on sale till then.

    Online shops usually ship before street date to make sure you have it by then.
    Mine shipped last night, so I should have it today (tomorrow at the latest)

    I agree. If they kept that intact and improved the graphics and sound(pedestrian got annoying). I will ove it. Plus I plan on getting the PS3 premium for some new Goblin action!

    I told my wife to get me that for my birthday. Got a nice week planned.

    Sunday-Tool, drunken night in hotel with wife and no kids.
    Monday-No work, hungover viewing of SM3
    thursday-no work sitting on my ass ALL day playing SM3

    yeh its my mates he got it sent from online, although i have no clue how he got it so early

    as for web slinging i haven't played spiderman 2 but its pretty much the same as ultimate spiderman, right trigger fires a web and left trigger (which i thought would be left web) means you sort of swoop and speed up whilst slinging

    This game turned out to be exactly what I expected... Spider Man 2.5

    Still fun, but it deserves the 6 that IGN gave it

    IGN and Eurogamer pretty mush trashed the game, both coming to the same conclusion of it being a facelift for Spider-Man 2 (and not very good one) more than anything else.
