Spider-Man 3 is an 2007 open world action-adventure game based on the film of the same name.
NOTE: The page does not apply to the Nintendo DS version.
- Like the movie, the story feels like a jumbled mess, such as having too many villains (Stealing the spotlight from each other), however, there are some instances where the story can feel even more off than the movie.
- Really hideous graphics even for 2007 standards, the human models look like they're poorly made with clay, and the animations look like a GMOD ragdoll or a poorly made SFM video, The PS2, PSP and Wii versions look even worse.
- To add insult to injury, the game runs on one of Treyarch's outdated game engine, that was supposedly used for they're previous 2 open-world Spider-Man games (Spider-Man 2 and Ultimate Spider-Man) yet when Treyarch previously worked on Call of Duty 3, they used a completely new engine.
- Some of the voice actors can be bland to hear, this includes Tobey Maguire where at times he sounds too hard to try to fit his role.
- While the web swinging might be easier to get used to than in the previous spider-man games, it is slower and heavier compared to other Spider-Man games, which makes it slower to travel.
- Laughable and corny dialogue, like when Bruce Campbell says in the Tutorial of the PS2, PSP and Wii versions: What would Spider-Man be without his spidey powers? He would be Man! is that what you came here to play? Man 3? and the infamous I'm going to die in the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC versions.
- The side missions are boring and repetitive.
- The combat is terrible and frustrating.
- The boss fights are mediocre.
- Plot Hole: How does Penny appear at the ending of the game even though Sandman says his daughter is dead (according to the film where the game is based)?
- Another plot hole: the PS3/Xbox 360/PC and GBA versions, Venom dies. Doesn't him has healing abilities?
- The camera on the main consoles (Both Six and Seven generations) and PC is annoying and gets in the way.
Xbox 360, PS3 and PC Versions
- Choppy framerate, with a lot of frames, drops this is even worse in the PS3 version.
- It overuses Quicktime events, to make matters worse due to the Aftermentioned framerate, it can make it harder to react properly.
- The Spider-Sense feels more like the detective mode in the Batman Arkham games.
- The game can get insanely difficult even with all of the upgrades. The final missions of Kingpin, Arsenic Candy, and Apocalypse are the worst examples of this.
- The bomb side missions are way too impossible, as if you move too fast, the bomb will explode really quickly, making it hard to finish.
- There is a plot hole that only appears on those versions: What happened to Harry Osborn (New Globin)? He's dead? At least, on the PS2, PSP and Wii versions correct the death of Harry Osborn.
- Another side mission that is frustrating are the ones where you defuse the bomb, where you just have to press the buttons at the right time.
- The DLC where's you play with the New Globin on these versions is horrible due to how hard is to control the New Globin.
PS2, PSP and Wii Versions
- If you stay in the black suit for too long you will die.
- Clunky controls.
- Those versions retired too many things such as Scorpion, Rhino, and Kingpin, which makes a rushed game.
- Long loading screens, not to mention between every mission there's a loading screen.
- The map feels lifeless.
Game Boy Advance
- The graphics look like an Atari 2600 game or a JAVA game.
- The combat and puzzle are simple.
- The audio is bland.
- For the first time in an open-world Spider-Man game (Not counting Ultimate Spider-Man) You can play as the Black Suit, which makes it unique compared to the previous games, the suits have their own unique abilities.
- The quick time event fails can be hilarious like this iconic one.
- The soundtrack is fine.
- Even if the voice acting can be bland, sometimes the voice acting is fairly good.
