    Is this any good/better than the other ones? Are they actually using the touchscreen for something better? Or are they not using it at all?

    This one is 3D right?.
    Is it anything like the X-Men Legends type of gameplay?

    Ah a quote by me!

    This is the best Spider-Man DS title! Not really saying much as they are all pretty repetitive but this one is better as its less restrictive. Its 3D...but with a fixed camera.

    Its kinda weird when you go from one screen to another, a bad move I reckon should have stuck to one screen but the few levels I played shown that it was OK, might play again next week when theres shag all to play.

    Can you be Venom in this? EDIT: I just read somewhere else that you can play as Spider-man and 7 villains.

    (Flashback)

    Does anyone remember "Spiderman & Venom: Maximum Carnage" for the SNES? I used to play that with my bro, I was always Venom... I loved that game [​IMG]

    Good times, gooood times...

    It's OK. Better than the last one that forced touchscreen control anyway. But I've about had enough of Spiderman games.

    Has anybody tried this on a G6 Real? I get to the save file select screen, but after that all I get is a black screen.

    Not a bad game, the split screen effect works well. Much better game to get into than the previous Spiderman games. It seems a bit on the easy side so far though. I can see it getting a bit repetetive unless there is changes as the level progress, or unlocking other characters may changes things.

    It seems a shame that the video at the start was soooo good and then it moves right into static images with a slight bit of animation followed by images of heads that dont actually talk but have flashing bars under them to indicate they are talking.

    Still, so far I am enjoying it.

    funem, or anyone for that matter, which would you say is better? This? Or Spider-Man 3? I'm considering getting one of them. Either that or I'll just go play the Spider-Man game on my SNES. [​IMG]

    I remember playing the 360 demo of this and nearly crying at how bad it was. It was trying too hard to be like Lego Star Wars in terms of gameplay and it failed at that. And the camera was unbearable!

    I kinda doubt the DS game would be any different...

    I haven't played this yet and had really low expectations for the game, but you had me at co-op.

    That game kicks ass. i have it for the Genesis, I played it with my friend or my dad. I was usually Venom as well [​IMG] he's one of the coolest characters ever.


    OT: I might check this out, I dunoo...I still have to beat the PW series, DK Jungle Climber (GODDAMN DOUBLE BOSS BATTLE), PH, and Prism :S

    [edit] though I might play co-op with my friend. Co-op is something sorely lacking in DS games.

    It happens to me, too. If you choose the save file number 2, you can view the opening video but after that the lower screen will be black (in the upper you can see only the map)... aaaaaaaargh!
