Review: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

You can teach an old spider some new tricks. Kind of.

Certainly seems to match similar remarks I have heard from others. Ill likely just let my friend by it, then borrow from him, heh

Neil Patrick Harris and Deadpool? A chance to learn more about Spidey's history and incarnations without having to read the comics or get it all-too-shortly summarized on the internet?

I must get this down the line!

Also, Funk, are you sick? You sounded...off.

am i the only one who thinks that guy at the end sounds like claptrap?

...

I'd pay for a Dead pool TV show.

I may actually watch TV for it.

Dead pool aint a villian he is just.....
an enourmus dick?

Lol @ deadpool.

Where is the number of stars out of 5? Has that been ditched?

On topic: I've never been a massive Spiderman fan, so hearing that this isn't so great, I don't think I'll pick it up.

EDIT: Okay, the stars are back. Nothing to see here.

That Deadpool commercial toward the end had me going for a second. I'm sure he would be great at birthday parties.

The game itself reminds me a lot of Web of Shadows, which was a disappointment in my eyes.

However, the Noir Spiderman is at least a side of the web-slinger I haven't see before, so that's at least something. I'll probably give this game a rent, but much more than that, I can not say.

the fact that Spiderman is voiced by Neil Patrick Harris in this was almost enough to get me to buy this by itself, but the gameplay doesn't look good enough for me to get it.

Sneak peak at the Deadpool is enough for me to play the game no matter how bad it is...

I finally finished this game last night, pretty much agree with most of the review. Just adding that the Noir levels are the most annoying thing ever. They are just a cheap and broken knock off of Arkham Asylum, I think the only Noir level I enjoyed was the goblin one because they let you loose in a huge area and you could actually take multiple approached to enemies and take them out. Whereas the other Noir levels they stick you in Narrow rooms or alley ways and you're pretty much left to doing take downs exactly the way the game wants you too. Even then it gets hard because some enemies will just happen to spot you for no reason at all. And the spider sense aka AA's Detective Mode is pretty annoying in this game, if you're going for collectibles then you essentially have to play with the damn thing on all the time and for some reason it seems to work a lot like infared vision. Suddenly walk into a room with bright lights you're probably going to wash out your entire screen.
All that said, definitely worth a rental. Just zip through the levels skipping most of the henchmen (especially in the later levels) and just go to the boss fights. The boss fights are the best parts of the game, the rest is just mediocre. And the Deadpool level is amazing.

This is probably just me but I always thought that Spiderman was more suited to be stealthy than Batman because of his powers.

So it sounds like this might be worth a rental, am I correct?

The game looks fun enough. I can only hope I'll be able to find a decent price... I'll wait until the price drops...

Got a cold, John?

Looks cool, sounds repetitious and short. Too bad.

The game is a good rental. Period. Some of the levels are insanely fun while others are very meh...

My favorite level was the Deadpool level where u fight on a series of oil rigs in the middle of the ocean. Great fun.

The first noir level was awesome. Even the boss fight emphasized stealth. However, they got way off on the second noir level taking most of the stealth sections out of the level, which basically felt like a pointless waste of a level.

already bought it, it has yet to arrive in the mail though, but i got a great price on it, and i love NPH as a voice actor so im sure i will get my moneys worth, also the only games you can rent in Denmark are launch titles or sports games.

ok... i just forgot everything that was said about that game or wathever

I guess the closest we ever got to spiderman 2 to was the spiderman game with the venom side levels that everyone hates. This one does sound more like web of shadows or ugh. heroes and villians with beat em up being the focus rather than exploration but I guess that's probably best. With games like infamous and assasians creed spiderman would really have to pull out all the stopss to look good in comparison to them. And as far as I know. No one has such skill at the wheel for the time being. Gameinformer gave it a good score though but it seems they were the only ones. Maybe they too were swayed by the deadpool cameo.

The Ultimate Deadpool from the game is a murderous tyrannical racist without any redeeming factors. He is completely and unrepentantly evil.

i heard that Ultimate deadpool is voiced by Nolan North(Nathan Drake)

Sadly, it's Ultimate Deadpool. Somewhat different character. Much more villainous, much less entertaining.

aint he that in the normal too?

Next in my queue for GameFly. Sweeeet.

Deadpool is in this!??!?

I'm sold!

Okay, my main question. Is the voice acting atrocious or is it good?

Whatever, Funk,

From the clips I saw from your video review I thought the game looked and played very well, despite all those things you said.

I'm not even sure if your review was negative or not. You gave a negative impression of the game but I can't quote you on anything specific. Hmmmm, this seems to be a recurring situation in video-game reviews.

Why can't critics give a personal opinion of video games?

*sigh* They keep trying to create a great rather than very good experience (as seen with Spiderman 2) with spidy and they keep failing.

Honestly I'm sick of Marvel in general. They fucked up the only great part of their comic book empire left by rebooting the already rebooted by nature Ultimate Universe, they haven't have a really great movie since Iron Man and they haven't had a great game either since Spiderman 2 WAY back in the fabric of time.

I want to love Marvel, and in concept at least they seem like the better superhero brand to support than DC, but damn the best I've seen from them in the last five or more years hasn't been anything approaching great, or even good.

The ultimate universe has been rebooted since his appearance in Ultimate Spiderman or Ulimate X-men (one of the two, the volumn used had both Spidey and the Xmen in it so I forget which one). He may be completely different in the rebooted Ultimate universe, at least he seems to be more like his original Marvel sense in this clip.

The Ultimate Deadpool feels to me like one of the few areas where the Ultimate universe stumbled. He worked as a one time villain I guess. But he wasn't the merc with a mouth that's for sure, he was a racist, mutant hating shape shifting bastard.

I've played the game, it is repetitive and has a bad storyline, but fuck it's a spiderman game that puts in different gameplay mechanics and honestly the noir levels are the best. Being able to sit two feet above a baddies head waiting for someone else to stop looking at him and then making your move feels so good, I find it better then arkham asylum

and it's fucking hilarious, totally classic spiderman jokes

The review was my personal opinion.

And yes, in a 4 minute video, the game does look nice (graphically it's fantastic) and played well (the combat is fluid and mashingly entertaining). The main problem is repetition; things that are fun cease to be fun when you've been doing them ad nauseum for the past six hours.
