It's fun but there's better Spider-man titles out there
Spider-man for the PS2 arrived in line with the 2002 release of the film, although the plot points in the game has very little to do with the movie.
Story aside, the game is still fun. It feels like a natural bridge between the Spider-man titles on the PS1 and Spider-man 2. You can see the progression taking place.
It plays in third person mode with much of your time swinging around sections of the city; only sections mind you. The swinging is a little too automated for my liking. You can swing, swing faster or be falling. There's little of what comes in subsequent games with cool acrobatics, an improved zip line, the ability to run on the walls, and the ability to string together in flight moves which really make you feel like the web-head himself.
During your time outdoors you'll be given a few city blocks for that stage that you're in, to do whatever it is you need to do. Usually this will be tracking down and beating up thugs, or robots, or squaring off against a boss. All your time is spent either swinging between the buildings, or running on the rooftops. I don't think I touched the street level once. I don't think you can get to street level in this game. But that's not a bad thing. There's lots of aerial combat which does help to make you feel like a tried and true web-slinger, although I found the number of mid-air attacks you have in your arsenal is somewhat limited.
When you find yourself indoors there's a variety of locations presented, from office spaces to sewers. Since swinging around in these areas can be cumbersome, you'll resort to a lot of wall crawling. At times you'll be doing so in the shadows as you attempt to creep past guards. There is an option where you can aim a web zip-line from where you are to a nearby wall, ceiling or whatever, which will get you around pretty quickly. This is made even easier by allowing you be in this mode even while you're moving.
Combat is decent, with a variety of combos and a few web attacks to pull off. You can unlock new moves by finding tokens spread throughout the levels. The button combinations are fairly easy to remember and execute, allowing you to quickly make short work of most bad guys that cross your path. It's just too bad that the controls can take some time to catch up with the camera. That is to say, if you spin the camera 180 then push right immediately, Spider-man will keep moving left. It's needs a second to realize the camera has moved, and to compensate accordingly.
There are of course boss battles in the game, and there's a decent number of them considering how short the game is. You'll come across Shocker, Vulture, Scorpion, a giant robot, and of course a couple of rounds with the Goblin. It's just unfortunate that all of the boss fights outshine the final duel with the Goblin, which was dull and un-inventive.
When you have completed the game you can go back and reply previous levels so you can get a higher score. The high-scores will allow you to unlock bonus stages, like the mini-game where you swing down a bowling lane and try to knock down giant pins.
It would have been a great Spider-man game at the time of it's release, but better titles that followed has made this one lose it's appeal over time. I say that it's still worth a play if you're a Spider-man fan; it's not like it will take you very long to get through.Read full review

The first thing I enjoyed about the game is that it's in 3rd person mode, so you only have to use one joystick to move Spidey! The tutorial is great and the commentary is hilarious!!
It stays true to the movie and is enjoyable to play. Now you hard core gamers out there will probably find fault with the simple scale and format of the game, but don't let that stop you from a swinging good time!
It fun for the whole family!

Spider-Man (Playstation 2)
Overall I would give this game a 4 out of 5. The graphics are good and the story line is not that bad. Spiderman's moves are real cool and in the begining of the game it shows you how to do all the moves.
The only bad thing I have to say about this game is - it is kind if hard for some of the little kids. My son had a hard time beating this game. Other than that this is a pretty good game. The best part of the game is - if and when you beat it you can play it again as the Green Goblin.

Spider-Man The Movie (Playstation 2,2002
My grandson got a Playstation 2 from his cousin and he bought a Spiderman game. The DVD got scratched and he was heartbroken. I looked on e-Bay and got a great deal on this DVD. My son said he played with it exclusively for days. It was a hit with my grandson which makes life grand.

Fun & Cheap
cheap for little brother to play with and entertain his self. I upgraded to a ps3 but for little kids a cheap ps2 game is great entertainment and don't have to worry about them breaking an expensive product.
