Summary

Disappointing don't buy the wii version if u do u will be very mad at bee-nox it made me so mad when I found out there is no free roam in the wii and 3ds versions. It is very easy! Very short and is not what people say it is. Please do not buy at all! Take my advice! I don't like people getting mad at things they were really looking forward to. The amazing spider man for wii sucks people u have to have an X-box 360 or a PlayStation 3 for free roaming. I was very dissapointed at how short it was and only three alternate suits? This is just a rip off!!!!!!!!!! Really sucks and isn't going to be anything like the movie! The x-box and play station versions are more like the movie! I would recommend waiting for a better spider man game for wii or getting an x-box 360 or play station 3!!!!!!!!!!




Nothing says "web slinging" quite like crawling around ventilation shafts.

Summary

The Amazing Spider-man for the Wii almost immediately feels... well, not so amazing. In fact, it feels very much the opposite. After a lengthy opening sequence that sets up the game's main story, green light is given for web-slinging antics, and that's where the first noticeable problem begins. The controls feel clunky and confusing, and it doesn't take long to realize that this title was designed specifically for the other consoles, with the Wii version just an afterthought. Slinging webs and engaging in combat never really feel fluid, and many combination sequences get broken up simply because of the nature of the Wii remote and nunchuck. The action is fast-paced and fun, but it seems to trip over its own feet. A poor camera that constantly leaves Spidey facing corners at the end of a button-mashing string of combos doesn't exactly help the situation, either.
As far as visuals go, the PS3 and X360 versions look far better. And they should, since they enjoy the freedom to sling-webs in the open air, hurling Spidey from rooftop to rooftop in exploration of New York City. Open exploration is, sadly, lacking with the Wii version. In place of an open city players find a simple map attached to a bulletin board, a boring cornucopia of locations waiting to be instantly transported to. Tired of the windy rooftops? Visit a scenic warehouse filled with ventilation shafts and locked doors! Tall buildings lacking excitement? How about a prison filled with ventilation shafts and locked gates! Random crime getting too monotonous? Try your hand at a stealth mission that lets you evade guards by utilizing a ventilation system! None of the locations seem very inspired, and it actually succeeds in making web slinging feel dull and lifeless.
Despite the flaws, The Amazing Spider-man is a fun Wii game for a casual gamer, but for anyone wanting to feel the open air of New York, it's better to track down Ultimate Spider-man for the Nintendo Gamecube.
