Review of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions for Xbox 360

Now that I’ve been reviewing for quite a while, I’ve experienced a lot of great games and a lot of terrible games, this being one of the terrible games. Why is Spider-Man’s latest adventure a complete blunder, you ask? Read on to find out!

Story: An all-powerful tablet has been broken, and it’s up to the Spider-Man from each shattered dimension to restore its pieces

Sound: The music for the game is both intense and fitting for each environment of the game. Also, the voice acting is outstanding and does a great job depicting each of the different Spider-Man’s personalities. Sound: 9/10

Presentation: An exceptionally good-looking game for the Xbox 360, with the extremely crisp and clean visuals probably being the highlight of the whole game. Presentation: 10/10

Gameplay: This is where things go downhill, fast. The game features four unique Spider-Men, each with his own gameplay style. The problem is, only one of the Spider-Men is fun to play as. Classic Spider-Man is a surprisingly boring and repetitive experience, with no real gameplay twists to make things interesting. Noir Spider-Man sports dreadful camera angles and a ridiculously painful enemy lock-on system, and Ultimate Spider-Man is just a weird, mucky version of Classic Spider-Man. This leaves 2099 Spider-Man, who is the only enjoyable character to play as. His levels include intense free-falling scenes, exhilarating acrobatics and extremely fun boss fights. Gameplay: 3.5/10

Multiplayer: N/A

Length: A fairly lengthy game, going above and beyond the standard eight-hour mark. With such bad gameplay for three-quarters of the game though, I don’t see how you’d stomach anymore than three. Length: 4.5/10

Overall: This mediocre adventure gets a 6.7/10. I don’t recommend it unless you’re a diehard fan of the wall-crawler… s.
