@lvenger: Now that I think about it, you can button mash and still do fine for a few fights. But if you do that you're going to be screwed doing both of the Vulture fights as you're not aloud to touch the ground, so you have to continually use the web strike moves which require timing to pull them off.

@ninjablade09: I think that fight got called a bit predictable and repetitive as boss fights go.

@lvenger: There were a lot of problems with the game such as the voice cast being god awful, except Steve Blum as Logan, the camera was pretty wonky at times, and it was very repetitive, but in my opinion in made up for it in the combat. The fighting in the game is nice and fluid, and switching between costumes really adds the thousands of combos you can do. It seamlessly switched between fighting in the air on ground and up walls. It's a fun game to play, and based on what I've seen been praised by most fans.

If Shaba games were allowed to make a sequel,or a new Spider-Man game,they would've made a very very good one...

I mean the game had good standards,and could improve on the combat,which is the most praised any Spidey game had,and the swinging which is concidered "most fun",again any Spidey game had......no,really it was a fun game!....

To me Beenox has taken one step forward two steps back with each of the games they have come out with. Shattered dimensions is the only one I go back and still play on occasion. Edge of time had the deepest story but became repetitive and didn't have enough villians (How can Doc Ock make an appearance without getting to fight him?) (they should have at least re-used some of the villains they had for Shattered dimensions). Movie based games are tough, but Beenox did an ok job with the first one. If they can improve on ASM and come up with a less limited story with some A-list villians and better graphics, I am sure I will be picking this one up as well.

I don't really understand why a movie based game places such limitations on villains, but it always seems to. Black Cat was the best villian they had in ASM 1 in my opinion.

"better graphics" = triple ,damn,ouch....

They cant.It's a movie game,and movie games have villian limitations thus story limitations....the film-makers make the desisions on who's in.They MANAGED to make the GREATEST villian in a game....the Lizard.THE LIZARD!......you really need to put effort to accomplish that....

I only hope for gameplay impovements for purchasing ASM2.....i know the story will be "meh"...

(little hope) The story has a tiny chance to be decent,because they said that it will evolve around Ben's killer......this means the story is grounded.....some detective stuff,research.
THIS is something which could work in a low scale,story wise, game.......you think WB is stupid for not making Nolan's Batman, games.....and approaching RS to make a comicbook one?......Arkham City made a million and a half,only in America,for God's sake!!.....why can't they do something like that with Spider-Man!!...he's more adoptable to a video game than Batman! is!

That's why Ultimate Spider-Man is my fav Spider game of all time.....comicbook based,environment like in a comicbook,and a bunch of First class villians in it.....

What you said about movie game story and vilain limitations is why I say it is hard to do a movie game. I think the cross species idea was a decent one, but again became repetitive. With SD and EOT they could go nuts with the story and come up with basically whatever they wanted. With a movie game they are prohibited from using certain villains and they have to make it somewhat fit with the movie. I am a little worried that Oscorp is playing too much of a part in the ASM movie franchise. It looks like every villain Spider-man faces will originate from within Oscorp.

I'm a little surprised they had the Rhino and Black Cat in the first game since they will be making an appearance in ASM2. Usually they want to avoid villains they have plans for (especially immediate plans). It makes me wonder if they don't have a little more freedom than we think.

One thing that I like that they are doing in the movies that they didn't do in the first trilogy is that they don't seem to plan on killing the villain at the end of every movie. Hopefully that will allow them to keep a roster of available villains that can pop up from time to time.

As PunyParker said, they won't even adress it. As far as the ASM2 game will be concerned the first ASM game will have never existed. It would be nice if they would actually use the video game to expand the world within the movie continuity. Unfortunately that would take too much cooperation from the movie writers. Particularly now that some villains have been introduced in the original trilogy, I would love to see them introduce an ASM version in a video game and then have them show up in the movie without the burden of an origin story.

Agreed... that was my point... not complaining here, I'll buy the game for sure, and probably will enjoy playing it a lot... but it would be nice if at least the video games (asm 1 and asm 2) had some continuity, even though not completely acording to the movies continuity. I know this would be very hard to coordinate though.
