Summary:

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows on the Wii allows players to control everything. The game gives you an unprecedented level of gameplay choice, including, for the first time, control over the game’s direction and outcome. Choose how Spider-Man fights, which powers to upgrade, who in the Marvel universe to fight with or against, and the fate of New York City itself. Spider-Man swings and zips, leaps, soars, and dives his way all throughout Manhattan. But these frame rate may make this all-exciting-adventure into a not-so-good one. As you go along the game you see a blunt city as Spider-Man takes a swing. But alas, the game has its exciting moments, too!

The problem with this super popular game is the it constant use of motion controls and it gets tiring fast. The flat, semi-lifeless visuals and frequent frame-rate drops, and at times the camera can be problematic. But in contrast, the story is original and entertaining, the camera generally does an excellent job with the action scenes. There are more exciting chases and exciting boss battles.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows may make it perfect to critics if not for their over-dependent with motion cameras and their boring use of visuals. Thanks to its solid, original story and many thrilling scenes that make this game an interesting one.

The entertaining introduction throws you right into the midst of an inevitable circumstance. The forces of SHIELD are fighting a losing battle and at the same time trying to invade New York. But despite all of the fights, Spider-Man tries to find MJ. In the scenes, MJ struggles with Peter for using his black suite. Flashes back to four days prior appeared, when Venom attacked Spider-Man and part of the suite that gives Venom his power attached itself to our hero, Spider-Man, giving him unfathomable, indestructible strength and power. In the end, the antagonist gets defeated and everything in New York City goes back to normal. But Spider-Man's responsibility does not end because he has more problems to deal with, like all-out gang wars. The great set-up and story of the game makes you want to continue on playing and discover how things go on till the game ends

Things get complicated when using webstrike, an attack that you use to defeat enemies. Luke Cage, another Spider-Man character and Marvel Superhero, shows Spider-Man on how to deal with those gangs and their gang wars. Webstriking is an attack that can rapidly zip up an enemy and throw him in the air is an important skill to learn. From then on, you can webstrike another opponent and chaining them taking the combo. On operating a webstrike, you shake the remote sideways, an action that could make you tired as you repeat it over during a combat. Frustrating it is when using webstrike, you can also change Spider-Man's suite from red to black or black to red in this process when you don't mean to use up and down shaking motion. It will get you on your last nerve when you mean to do one of those actions when you mean to do the other one. The sporadic actions and not-so-exact controls may limit your action, or the shaking of the control per se.

Of course, Spider-Man swings and zips, leaps, soars, and dives his way all throughout Manhattan. But these frame rate may make this all-exciting-adventure into a not-so-good one. As you go along the game you see a blunt city as Spider-Man takes a swing. But alas, the game has its exciting moments, too!

The story of the game is exciting and like in the movies, they have scenes in them during side missions. Which make the game so compelling and provokes you to continue the game. In past games, you deal with selection of characters, deal with heroes or villains depending on the choice you make. With Spider-Man, you either be moral or give in and be tempted in Peter's or Spider-Man's dark side. But during the missions, regardless of the choices, the endings still depends whether you wear the black or red suite.
