Spider-Man: Web of Shadows - Amazing Allies Edition is an 2008 side-scrolling beat 'em up game. The article only talk about the PS2 and PSP Versions.

Bad Qualities

  1. The gameplay is changed, which is stupid excuse because they should just port from the Wii on the PS2 (since both have the same power).
  2. The game itself is repetitive, not only on the combat but also in the process of walking, climbing and swinging[1].
    • Also, the side-missions are turning repetitive.
  3. While some side-missions are okay to make like you hold the lady and put on the ground or cleaning the enemies, others are strange like you help to fix the sattelite.
  4. The voice acting despite is good, it lacks most of them, and instead, we use text exchange between Spider-Man and another character's interactions.
    • Speaking of that, the choices of dialogue doesn't make any difference.
  5. There's the slots where you power up your combat or invocate the Marvel characters. Despite their are good, turn those a pointless because the game is easy.
  6. No custcenes exists on those versions, even on the ending is lazy. After you beat the game appears the message: Congratulations! You've saved the city.

Good Qualities

  1. The soundtrack and the voice acting (though small) are still good.
  2. Decent graphics.
  3. It brings another Marvel characters on the game who never appeared on the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii such as Kraven, Shocker, Nightcrawler and for the first time (and only), Jackal finally appears on those versions.
  4. Even if the combat system is weak, some allies and skills on the slots can help you even if the game is easy

Reception

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows - Amazing Allies Edition received mixed reception. Some liked this due their childhood or the gameplay with the addition of five slots[2]. And others hated it because that is different comparing the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC versions and doesn't have a ending.
