Spiderman Shattered Dimension Conflicts

I am interested in most superhero games and its been a while since we had a really GREAT Spiderman game. They have ranged from, awful, to it won't make your eyes bleed. Finally,(they say that with every new Spiderman game) we have the game that brings Spiderman back into the light.

Nope, maybe, I don't know. Depends on who you ask, what I can say is that I really don't mind waiting to get this game second hand 3-4 years down the road. They say its the best Spiderman game since they were really good. But that's not saying much, that's like saying eating the shit nuts on your steaming pile of turds is better than actually eating the shit itself. Too far?!!! ..I don't think so.

IGN - 80/100
Some of the levels and boss battles are phenomenal. Beenox took a lot of chances with this game, most of which paid off in something unique and refreshing. Some old issues (bad camera, repetitive combat) still haven't been completely solved, but the good far outweighs the bad.

1UP - 75/100
The change in combat options is a welcome addition, I just wish that the story had delivered on the comic legacy of one of Marvel's more enduring heroes.

Destructoid - 60/100
There's so much amazing fan service here, that enthusiasts simply shouldn't miss it. Despite its extremely obvious and repetitive nature, it's also a decent amount of fun, provided you play it in small doses.
