Review Content

In The Amazing Spiderman for the Wii game console, the player finds himself in the world of Spiderman where they will re-live the plot of the movie of the same title. The game follows the character through the story of the movie which involves encounters with most of the many popular Spiderman villains while traveling through the levels using different strategic gameplay techniques.

The action takes place in the Manhattan area of New York and the player will be given the option of free fighting or utilizing spider webs, and other highly useful skills that Spidey is a master of, to do battle with villains in its streets and buildings. The player can utilize a number of different strategies such as using the shadows to hide from enemies or for sneaking past people. Or perhaps the player would like to take the enemies they encounter head on by using a combination of combos and Spiderman specific web shots or other web moves.

There is also a Spider Sense feature that gives the player the option to perform a special move on an enemy when appropriate. People will also find that they can crawl on the ceiling and use their web techniques to capture enemies on the ground. Upon doing this, the webbed enemy will then be captured in a cocoon on the ceiling so that the player may pass the area safely.

There are other gameplay features incorporated into The Amazing Spiderman that make it an innovative step above previous Spiderman games. An example of this is an option called the Web Retreat which lets Spiderman to instantly become hidden so that the player may return to stealth mode. This is useful in the event of the player being surrounded by multiple enemies. When fighting enemies, the player can combine combos with web special moves and even use incidental objects to their advantage.

The game's graphics are on par with what you would expect and this helps to make for a realistic Spiderman comic environment along with buildings, landscapes, people, characters, and other items.

When swinging through the city, the player will come across many events that in which they may choose to intervene or leave. For example, there may be times when a robbery is occurring where the player can intercept and assist the person being robbed and defeat the robbers, or look the other way.

There are many hidden comic book pages throughout the city of Manhattan that, when collected, will unlock full comic books that can be read. While the pages may be difficult to find, they are displayed on the person's radar when passing by them to give them a general direction in which they're hidden.

While this game doesn't offer a multiplayer mode, the single player action offers an entertaining storyline that keeps to the movie plot and gives the user plenty of action to take part in, but I think that may nor be enough for more experienced gamers.
