Ultimate Spiderman (Nintendo Gamecube, 2005)

  • $1900


After producing two successful movie-based games featuring the arachnologically augmented teen hero, the inventive Activision developer Treyarch spins a more comics-influenced yarn with Ultimate Spider-Man. While the 3D third-person action again takes place in large, freely roamed urban environments, as in Spider-Man 2, this game has players taking control of two Marvel super-beings -- Spidey himself, and his costume-c**-criminal rival, Venom.

As Spider-Man, players can patrol the rooftops of large Queens, NY, neighborhoods, using spider sense to find people in need and super agility to get to them in time. In control of Venom, players will be drawn by the symbiotic alien's twisted emotions to lay waste to everything in its path. Each character has his own style of fighting, and his own reason for doing so; by playing as each in turn, players gradually come to see both sides of the story.

As they explore the city streets, Spidey and Venom will each face their share of other heroes and villains from the expansive Marvel pantheon. Unlike recent Spider-Man games from Activision, Ultimate Spider-Man features stylized, cel-shaded graphics designed to emulate the look and feel of artwork in contemporary Spider-Man comic books.

In Ultimate Spider-Man, the player can experience a free-roaming city environment that covers Manhattan and Queens. The player starts in story-mode where the game automatically switches between Spider-man and Venom. Spider-Man travels by web swinging, but the player must shoot a web at an actual building to swing, much like in the previous game, Spider-Man 2. Spider-Man uses acrobatic attacks. Venom travels by using his symbiote to pull himself and by performing massive jumps. Venom attacks using his claws and tendrils. Venom can also throw cars at targets and perform much more brutal attacks, including eating people in order to gain health.

Ultimate Spider-Man was met with positive reviews. Aggregating review websites GameRankings and Metacritic gave the GameCube version 75.41% and 76/100.
