Web of Shadows opens strong, but it seems like it runs out of interesting and varied ways to put them to use well before you get to the end, and it turns into a bit of a grind. After the novelty of being able to go from swinging through the air to running up the side of a building to zipping up on an enemy and giving them the old biff-pow wears off, you're left with a lot of missions that seem to always come down to traveling to a location and beating up some dudes.

Opening it up to more comic book-focused storylines, allowing players to decide the outcome in various interesting ways, increasing the combat to make it enjoyable and easily accessible to anyone, and, of course, giving fans the Black Suit to play around with all do this admirably. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows may not be perfect, but it definitely gives you the closest chance you are going to get to being Spider-Man without being bitten by a radioactive spider.

It's rare that such a great concept is sabotaged so savagely by poor execution, but Web of Shadows is a stark reminder that it takes more than a solid idea to make a great game. Spider freaks who haven't had enough of this same formula will find it to be a solid rental, but if your spider senses are tingling we recommend picking up one of the old games from the bargain bin.
