I remember i got a ps2 in like 2010( my family was kinda poor) at a game stop for very cheap and getting spiderman 2 and just playing it so much (i was like 6) i dont remember doing any missions i would just go around fighting bad guys till i had to go do chores
Spider-Man implemented the Dodge feature IN Spider-Man 2 but in Amazing Spider-Man they still cited as coming from Arkham WTF
To me neversofts spiderman and ultimate spiderman are the best ones.

Great history but missed Spider-Man: Battle for New York & Spider-Man: Friend or Foe. Also, Kraven was not in Spider-Man: The Movie. It was Shocker, Vulture, Scorpion & Goblin. The new game looks amazing (pun intended) and I'm really excited for it!

Where’s the plug and play?
Why was Thor removed and the Twin Towers, the Twin Towers are still standing and what the hell does it have to do with Thor?
Thinks: I'm hungry \n\n\n\n\n*pizza time theme intensifies*
Idgaf web of shadows is and always will be the best
I'm gonna... just keep adding to this. \n\nI love Spidy in Marvel VS Capcom!\n\nNeversoft's Spider-Man was the second I played, after the one where you can play as Black Cat, Namor, and Hawkeye as well as the title character [but never beat it]. \n\nSpider-Man 2's swinging WAS amazing! I really enjoyed 1-3 of that movies game series. \n\nUltimate Spider-Man!! My brother and I put so much time into that game!!! Such a brilliant title!\n\nI love Shattered Dimensions! Noir was the best part about it! And yeah, this is coming from someone who has beat all of the Arkham games!\nIt's funny how people are comparing the new Spider-Man game to the Arkham games... I've seen gameplay [omg I need $60 so bad so I can experience it myself!!!] and it... it has combat! But other than that, I don't see it.\n\nAmazing Spider-Man was... alright... never played the second.\n\nWow... good to know why I can't find any of these games below $130... hrmph....

YOU MISSED A GAME... RE-DO THE WHOLE THING AGAIN... where is Spider-Man Friend or Foe...
Drew Forchic
You forgot the game I grew up playing...\n\nThe Spider-Man Plug-and-Play from 2004, made by Jakks Pacific. 5 whole games in one, no console needed. 6 year old me was psyched.\nThere was also a mobile game for my old flip phone, but I can't seem to find the name of it anywhere. It was a side scrolling beat-em-up and it was terrible and impossible to control on my terrible phone keypad but I played it anyway.

Spider-man for PS1 is legit still my favorite video game of all time, I literally play that game to completion once every 3 months xD I love it so much. Part of me is kinda salty the 2018 Spiderman's game story wasnt just that but in this updated quality xD

Spider-man has always been an anchor for my gaming habits. If there was a Spider-man game to be played, I would find one way on another to get my hands on it. Spider-man movie tie-in game is the reason I got a Ps2, I actually spent more time playing as Harry in that game than Spidey, Spider-man 2 came out and changed everything, though I realized shortly after I actually prefer Ultimate Spider-man to any Spidey game released at this point. Web of shadows didn't feel as solid as the PS2 open world games and Spidey's VA sucked. The one that really surprised me, and has been the most fun Spidey game in recent years, was Shattered Dimensions. Not Open world, but it was very focused because of it, every level is a cool set piece and it brought me back to the days I spent playing the ps1 spidey games. \nBut Friday, now thats a big day. We now know its the greatest Spidey game of all time, possibly the best Superhero game of all time, and I'm ecstatic.

My Top 10 Spidey Games\n\n 1. Marvels Spiderman\n2. Web of Shadows\n3. Shattered Dimensions\n4. Edge of Time\n5. Ultimate Spider-Man \n6. Spider-Man 2000\n7. Amazing Spider-Man \n8. Spider-Man 2\n9. Enter Electro\n10. Spider-Man the movie game
Shouldn't Insomniac also be well known for the first 3 Spyro games?
Ultimate Spider-Man has always been so underrated. Much better than Spider-Man 2 in my eyes!

You actually missed a SpiderMan game I had that was just a joystick

One note about the amazing spiderman 2: \n\nI hate doing the activities to keep your hero rate up, if you don't do these activites you eventually will become a menace. The game should have just allowed you to do whatever, one of my only favorite parts of the game is the costumes.
Spider-Man vs Kingpin was way too hard for its target age-range. You're on the clock, dying and continuing subtracts two hours from the game time, web fluid depletes quickly; and if you run out, don't even bother playing. He punches half the distance any given enemy can strike you. I think the only people who praised that game were very mature/seasoned gamers. The rest of us popped in Sonic and anxiously waited for next Saturday morning to watch Spidey instead.
Spiderman 2 and ultimate Spiderman are the still the goats imo. Shattered dimensions and web of shadows get an honorable mention though.
Nelson Bennett
Also spider-man friend or foe for the ps 2 is missing in the doco.
Nemo Dollaz
Ultimate spiderman deserves so much more recognition.
The only spiderman games i ever owned and played where Spiderman (2002), spiderman 2 (2004), web of shadows, and shatter dimensions
so you mention marvel vs capcom games but not ultimate alliance?
Please Stand By
you missed FRIEND OR FOE WTF!! i loved that game
Prince Vegeta
You forgot friend or foe
God, the animated scenes remind me too much of that crappy Legend of Zelda game and I already hate it
Web of Shadows for the Ps3/Xbox 360 is the best in my opinion
The Amazing Spiderman 2 was really good, the only issue was having to constantly side track to stop crimes or the whole city hates you.
If Spider-Man ps4 does well, it will open a new lane for marvel superhero games

Maximum Carnage was the first Spidey game I played and Spiderman 64 was the next. Great memories.

Ultimate Spider-Man swinging was just as good as Spider-Man 2 if not better. You attached to buildings just the same way.

Ultamate spiderman is my favorite
Ultimate Spiderman needs a remaster so bad :(

The cadence of your voice is the worst thing that has ever happened. It is - and i don't say this lightly - worse than a hundred September 11ths.

What kind of monsters says SNES instead of Super NES?
Spider-Man (2000) , Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro , Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2, Ultimate Spider-Man, Web of Shadows and Shattered Dimensions were the good ones

edge of time is extremely underrated because not that many people got the game i don't think but if you play it you will see why it is one of the best spider man games ever next to the amazing spider man 2 and the 2018 spiderman game...
Tetroy 64
Spider-Man 2002 for PC was my favorite Spider-Man game! Having Tobey Mcquire voice act for the game made for some great commentary and the vast set of attacks made for such an enjoyable game!
The Cringe God
Just prep ordered it!! Even though I don't have a ps4 and I know sony is getting greedy at the moment so I won't be getting ps4 plus (I am a hardcore spiderman fan) oh and also PIZZA TIME!!!

I do have to say props to Gamespot for only playing 1 ad during this video. Most would put over 10 ads.
*Is it weird I wanted to see if you made it back to the pizza shop ?*
spider-man friend or foe is the best game of all time change my mind.
Tony, The Stark
Shattered Dimensions was awesome! After Spider-Man 2 was the only SM game I really liked. More linear approach but the gameplay was so much fun with all the various mechanics between the 4 characters.

Spider-Man on PS1, Spider-Man 1 and Spider-Man 2 on PS2, Ultimate Spider-Man, Web of Shadows, Shattered Dimensions, Spider-Man PS4.\n\nthe PS1, Ultimate, Web of Shadows, I played the most of. The sheer overwhelming marvel universe feel of the PS1 version was so sick, along with the set pieces. The first movie game was cool cuz of the updated graphics. 2 for the innovation to swinging. Ultimate was just toony and fun and felt faster yakno? Web of Shadows for the fighting and the cool morality system. Shattered for the different environments and gameplay. The new one for being kind of a throwback to 1, the movies in graphics, the speed and action from Ultimate and Web, great cutscenes and boss fights like Shattered.\n\nI wish they would include more swing styles and animations, more powers and challenge arcade style stuff, more upgrades to swinging and combat, cooler levels that take note from like spiderman 1, I loved those levels that were crawling focused. This newest one is the best one yet, but hopefully in DLC or updates, or in a sequel that they take all the good stuff from not just the most notable games, but from every game and just amp it up xD\n\nMy top 3 for innovation would be\n1. PS4\n2. 1 on PS1\n3. Shattered Dimensions\n\nif it's swinging only\n1. PS4\n2. WoS/Ultimate is a tie, they felt similar :P\n3. 2\n\nCombat\n1. PS4\n2. Shattered\n3. WoS.

Wrong not mr negative its doctor octavious
The first Spiderman Movie game was awesome with the cheat codes, 1 in particular. Playing as Harry with the Goblin Suit and glider was like a virtually new game. Actually it was a completely different game.\n\nThe melee combat was the same but switching was replaced completely by the glider with real time omnidirectional controls which were similar to jet games of the time. That meant the glider could hover do VTOL, and fly like a plane, shoot missiles, bombs, and bullets just like the movie. It was perfect. Even better, you could get off and run around punching and kicking people, attacking with pumpkin bombs, razor bats, a fire run which accommodated the lacking mobility all while your glider did its AI fighting thing.\n\nThis combined with a completely different slightly leaky story (same levels) where Harry was trying to figure out who was stealing Ozcorp tech (actually his father). Even now I'm impressed. ALL the voice acting and interactions were changed to Goblin versions rather than just a standard reskin cheat code bit that you'd normally expect. Today you'd expect this kinda functionality in DLCs or a re-release like we see with the numerous addons for ARK. Hell they coulda gotten away with reselling the game as a \
Enjoyed Shattered Dimensions and that about it.

Haven't really fully played a spider-man game since ultimate spider-man. Reviews just kept disapointing me and Shattered dimensions flew under my radar at the time and it is a bit pricey to try and go back to now. Definitely picking up the new spider-man in a couple days and I'm really looking forward to it. Watching this retrospective made me realize just how much spider-man 2's graphics and jank have aged so hopefully this new one will be great so I can have that authentic great experience without sacrificing in the graphics department.
I want to get copys of edge of time and shattered dimensions I loved those games I also have web of shadows
lisab theboss
Shattered dimensions was my favorite

Ultimate spiderman is one of the best in my op.
