Nice.  Love the variety.
 
I just wish this game used Unreal Engine Technology.

 

They're the guys responsible for:

- Gears of War 
- Bio Shock 
- Arkham Asylum 
- Splinter Cell

That is not accurate at all, that's just the engine the teams behind those games used, has nothing to do with the actual developers. There's no reason to wish that this game used Unreal Engine 3, because... why would that magically make it better (or worse, for that matter)?

It won't, it's just a preferance of taste. I just like the feel and look of the Unreal Engine.
 
It's just like wising a 2D Fighting game was made by Capcom rather than SNK, even though both companies are great at it.  Both however have different looks and feels for their games.

This may be the best Spider-man game since the psone title back in the day.

this game looks cool with the diffrent characters/stories mayb im being too picky but maybe they should have added ben reilly in the fold so that you can play with the actual characters costume....

Looks like the suit from Spider-Man 3, no thank you

Already pre ordered to have Captain Universe power. :P

While I'm looking forward to this, the animation looks a little flaky, like the hits aren't actually connecting. It's almost like the game keeps glitching, anyone else seeing this? 
 
Plus still pretty bummed out out that we won't have a spider-man 2099 open world to play in

@Jordanstine:   So wait-  you want to start a level and watch all the graphics slowly melt in like the games you listed?   
 
Actually in all seriousness, unreal engine 3 is great when used correctly-  however watching the game in action at comic con and actually seeing people playing it, it looks smooth, fast and pretty darn slick.  Whatever engine the developers used (and if they built their own for the game kudos to them) they did a great job.

Alright, I''m starting to get concerned that all their promotions are based around what alternate costumes you can wear, and not the game play or story.

Oh man, that's cool. While most of the other costumes are pretty well known in and out of fandom, this and Mangaverse Spidey are the coolest to me. Because, really? who outside of fans knows about these? It's a shame considering how cool this particular costume is- both looks and ability wise.

That's one of the biggest problems of the UE3. Sure, it may load everything extremely well in the background, avoiding loading screens completely, but the texture pop-up is terrible. It's not a problem in games like Arkham Asylum or Bioshock, but in others, like Singularity... Urgh.

Cool.

Always a fan of these alternate costumes, but I find it odd that the Negative Zone costume is so popular despite being seen in only one issue of the comics.

I'm not a huge Spider-Man fan, but this game looks to be pretty kick ass. Definitely worth checking out imo

It was weird for me when I saw the box art of this a couple weeks ago and it had Spider-Man 2099 on it... not that Miguel is not a cool character, he rules in my opinion, just such an underused character... Havent really played a Spidey game that is not at least a little fun so I'll at very least rent it.

Posted by Lunatyk

It looks like it will be a really cool game...

Might as well have had the Spider-Armor costume from Web volume 1 #100... after all it appeared in more then one issue, it had video game, action figure, and cartoon appearances... Truth be told where are Spidey 2211, Spider-Boy, Spiders Man, Yu Komori, and the other Spider-Men!

Cool, still in two minds on wether or not to pick this up though.

What about the Electro-Proof Spidey from Amazing 425, I loved that one shame it never reappeared.

I'll wait for the quick look

Not a big fan of this costume's trailer.
Any hope for a manga Spidey trailer too?

Posted by Aspenite

Looking great!

Reminds me of that piece of crap movie Spiderman III

@ccrosby:
If it's in Unreal, then yes :)

Looks OK.

Actually the Spider Armor is going to be in the game as an alt costume for Spiderman 2099. But I would love to see some of those other ones you listed, I doubt Spider-Boy would ever get into a game since Marvel and DC both own it, but it would be great. 
 
@Razeil:
I always loved the Electro proof armor, I thought it had a great design to it.

Not really interested in this one, (despite the fact superheroes and video games are 2 of my favourite things). I've played enough Spider-Man games in my time and I actually talked with some people who were at E3 at they said it was pretty meh. And they are huge fans of comics and video games as well.

Posted by phantomzxro

I still don't know about this game the gameplay just does not feel right to me. But it is a plus that they have unlockable outfits(also the pre-order ones seems cool)

It does. CURSE YOU Sam Raimi, and your horrible artistic changes.
