Acquired the game yesterday. It's the best Spiderman game so far and the first in the franchise, that succeded in making the combat actually fun. This game takes Ultimate Spiderman, which was an OK game, and evolves it into something great. Swinging through the city is awesome, story is 'meh', but the combat is where this game really shines and leaves all its predecessors way behind.
It's intuitiv, yet executing the different combos in the midst of a heated battle, is challenging enough as to maintain the excitement a good game needs.
The freedom to choose your own playstyle is what will get you hooked:
Do you want to spend all your points on the blacksuit with its tentacle abilities?
Or on the redsuit with is midair and webshooting skills?
Or do both! You can switch from one suit to the other in midcombat.
Do you want to resist the suit or give in to it? Kill or save?

Enough of the advertising. Its a great game!
If you have some childhood spidey-memories left you should definitly give it a try.

*edit: Just realized that this post is dripping fanboyizm *shudder*
I should demand payment from Activision for this glorification.

How does the swinging work? that was always a downer in every spiderman game. The webs must be either shot at specific places to swing, or at targets. Totally ruins the immersion for me.

Both suck.

the best way would be free web. If you miss a building, you fall. Plain and simple.
