Spider-Man 2 (Nokia N-Gage review)

Developer: Activision, Digital Eclipse
Publisher: Activision
Released: 2004

Spider-Man 2 is an action game that's based on the 2004 film of the same name.

+ Many secrets can be found by scouring the environments, and the optional photography objectives unlock bonus artwork.

+ Despite the low frame-rate, the 3D levels that see you web-slinging around buildings against the clock act as a fun diversion.

- However, the 3D stages are brief to the point where they come across as a gimmick rather than a core element of the gameplay.

- The 2D side-scrolling levels feature dull fetch quests, and you feel more like a busy-man than a superhero.

- Side-scrolling stages are uninspired and there's barely any areas where you can effectively use Spidey's aerial web-slinging ability.

- Combat is awkward and lacks combo flow when attacking, while the bosses usually require button mashing over skilled play.

- Controls are loose and Spidey often seems to have an animation delay when inputting a strike or movement.
