I don't recall a single Spidey game that's really engaged me since the ancient Questprobe Featuring Spider-Man on the Apple II! (Yes, I am that old...) The last game that featured Spidey-related game that I liked was Marvel Ultimate Alliance, but Webhead was just one of the many characters in there and it didn't really feel like a Spidey game.
Well, looking at the Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions trailer that was released at the San Diego Comic Con (SSDC 10), this all should change on September 7th, 2010!
In a nutshell, the Shattered Dimensions will feature 4 different Wall-crawlers from different universes:
- Amazing - Your standard friendly-neighborhood web-slinging Red & Blue
- Noir - A 1930's version which plays mostly in the shadows, taking a cue from Batman Arkham Asylum perhaps?
- 2099 - Future Spidey who flies through the air with the greatest of ease
- Ultimate - My favourite - Black Symbiote Spidey! I always loved the black suit! Too bad it's like an evil and psycho ex-girlfriend in the comic book...
The playing styles and feel are supposed to be different across the 3 universes and judging from the preview on IGN, that seems to be the case.
I'm really looking forward to this one! Let's hope it lives up to it's promise!
