The Amazing Spider-Man game brings you through all different situations and challenges from the movie.  The game from Activision brings back a lot of the actions that come from the previous Spider-Man video games. For example, when you web swing, the camera zooms in – they took that action from Spiderman 2.  The latest version has new actions that didn’t come from the other games and some actions have been perked up.  These include:

1. The ability to web shoot quicker

2. You can run up an entire building instead of a small portion of one

3. You can do a stealth takedown from above

Like any other game based on a movie,  they change the storyline to make it more interesting and more exciting.  In the movie there was a toxin that turned people into lizards, while in the game there is no toxin and only one evil lizard.

I give The Amazing Spiderman a rating of 9 (out of 10).  It was not worthy of a 10 for one reason – the game went off topic with missions that would help you get upgrades while you could of beat the game already.

I recommend this game for everyone over the age of 8.
