Review Spiderman: Web of Shadows (ps3): A title that deserves to be played

genre: action, adventure

For quite a long time I was under the impression that Web of Shadows was an inferior title because from the reviews I read people weren't really digging it. But I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying the game. 

That does not mean there aren't elements to be critical about because there are plenty. First of all the game wastes no time with bothering you with a story. From the get go it is obvious that New York is in big trouble and Spidey has to save the day. This can be a little confusing since I thought I accidentally skipped a prologue cut scene. However it puts you immediately into action. And then you get a little tutorial of how to control Spidey. And let me say this. Web slinging in this game is a lot of fun. Another great feature is the combat. In previous games Spidey always seemed a little weak to me and here they improved on that and for the first time I felt truly powerful. And with the available upgrades that feeling only increased. Soon I had a heavy deja vu feeling. A lot of the game play mechanics somehow were familiar to me. Then it dawned on me that Web of Shadows has a lot in common with Prototype. If you take a moment and think about it there are more similarities than differences. Now you could take this info as something good. If you loved Prototype 1 and 2 you will also love this one. But of course this could also be seen as a bad thing since some want variety in their games. Personally that did not bother me that much since the fun factor of this game is incredibly high. Although I must admit that in the final stages some missions get on your nerve because they are repetitive and only prolong length of gameplay artificially. I liked that Web of Shadows was set up as a random adventure that was very usual in Spiderman comics. The inclusion of several other Marvel characters only enhanced the pleasure. Now this game is more focused on combat than in previous Spiderman games and this might be one of the reasons why a lot of people found the game to be repetitive. Like I said for me this only happened in some of the final missions which is after a lot of epic events that more than compensate the flaws. 

Overall Web of Shadows is a title that deserves to be played and should not be overlooked because it is not nearly as repetitive as it is said to be.
