  Spider Man 2
Words from the company:
Two years have passed since Peter Parker first hit the streets of New York City as the conflicted crime-fighter Spider-Man. Now he finds himself battling his most diabolical villain yet, the mechanized, multi-tentacled Doc Ock. The nefarious Doc Ock was once Dr. Otto Octavius, a brilliant nuclear physicist. But a freak accident transformed him from a timid researcher to a criminally insane megalomaniac who blames Spider-Man for his horrible transformation. Now the scientist Peter once idolized for his remarkable intellect has marked our web-slinger for death.

Experience total freedom as you soar through the concrete canyons of a living, breathing Manhattan, complete with familiar landmarks and bustling, traffic-clogged streets. True non-linear gameplay (GameCube™, PlayStation®2, and Xbox® only) means you can web-swing wherever you like, whenever you like, exploring the vast metropolis and reliving scenes from the Spider-Man 2™ movie. Combat petty thugs and aid NYC citizens in challenging side-quests, or pursue the lunatic Doc Ock and other classic Spider-Man rivals. The decision is yours.

The Review:
Here is an old fashioned type of arcade style game that is best played on a console but I had a chance to check it out on the PC. The game is in cartoon format not like some of the newer games and you have the various options that Spiderman uses such as climb walls and shoot web and swing like a monkey between the streets.

This is a fun type game with little challenge except for killing the bad guys with special powers like the Rhino man or Dr Octopus. Don’t get me wrong the challenge is there and it is Spiderman we are playing as so its back to my younger years and forget realism and just have fun with it.

There is no strategy involved and you follow the arrows to your destination and puch out the felons and you win. All in a days work.
