The Spider-Man franchise has spawned a multi billion dollar industry worldwide. From comic books, movies, television, toys, memorabilia, games and so forth. Whether you are enamored with Spider-Man or abhor Spider-Man, he is here to stay. For the most part, Spider-Man games are fairly entertaining. Personally, I have always had a fantastic time with anything and everything that is affiliated to Spider-Man.
The new Spider-Man video game is another one of those games that will no doubt make Stan Lee’s bank account even richer. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is a Spider-Man video game with an original perspective. That is because players will see Spider-Man becoming allies with his most malicious foes. Some of these adversaries entail Green Goblin, Dr. Otto Octavius, Venom, and Sandman. The location of the game is not exclusively set in New York city; the lovable hero will travel to different areas of Asia as well. There will also be a multiplayer component to the single player campaign. The plot in Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is utterly ludicrous, but that is alright. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is about a meter crashing down on earth with deadly repercussions. It is a breath of fresh air to view an innovative Spider-Man storyline. Many gamers are worn out of the same unoriginal plot with the Spider-Man video games time and time again. If Spider-Man fans were able to get pass the eccentric story in Marvel Ultimate Alliance, then they will easily overcome the story in Spider-Man: Friend or Foe. The gameplay has all the bells and whistles that Spider-Man nerds (like myself) will enjoy. There is your traditional web-slinging and swift Spider-Man maneuvers that will make gamers giddy.
Conversely, there are some rudimentary puzzle solving aspects in the game. Since Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is catered for the 10 – 14 age demographic, you will not be expected to accomplish a plethora of intricate puzzles. However, a few puzzles sprinkled in here and there are present to alter the pace. In addition, you will be able to swap to a different character (ala Resident Evil 0) on the fly. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is expected to come out on the Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, PC, and PlayStation 2. Activision has not corroborated if a PlayStation 3 version is under development. Not having a PlayStation 3 version of Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is illogical because Spider-Man and Sony are synonymous. Hopefully, a PlayStation 3 iteration will be announced shortly. Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is slated for an October 2, 2007 release date.
