Spider-Man - The Animated Series
Spider-Man has his work cut out for him in this new cart for the Sega Genesis System. This super-hero will be battling against a combined force of his worst enemies, as he tries to locate and diffuse a bomb set to explode in 24 hours. As if that weren't bad enough, everyone thinks Spider-Man planted the bomb. He not only has to fight the real villains along the way, but must also protect himself from the public, who see him as the real enemy. However, all is not lost; Spider-Man has a formidable arsenal of weapons as well as enhanced "spider-like" reflexes at his disposal. He will have need of all his resources as he goes head- to-head with villains like The Lizard, Dr. Octopus and Venom. His mission is twofold: 1) Defeat the forces of evil directed by The Kingpin; 2) Diffuse the bomb threatening to obliterate the city. This is Spider-Man's biggest challenge - Are you ready for it!!!?
TIP: As you leave the Park, you enter The Hobgoblin and Venom's domain, the City Streets. They're both waiting for you to make a mistake. Keep your eyes open, you can never tell who's going to strike next. It's amazing how tangled up they can become in a Spider's Web!
TIP: When in the sewers, watch out for rats in the piping as well as the bats flying around. Be careful not to fall, you may end up fighting alligators. When you reach The Lizard's lair snap a quick picture and then move in for the attack.
TIP: When you arrive in Central Park, you will have to avoid the SWAT Team waiting for you. Remember the public thinks you're the villain. The Sandman is lurking in the park. Keep in mind sand and water don't mix.
TIP: As you start out in the warehouse, keep in mind you have only 24 hours to achieve your goal. Avoid fights, if possible, and remember to take plenty of pictures. These help to provide money for you to buy Web Formula.
TIP: You've made it to Kingpin's cave. The workout here is much tougher. Avoid the robots and explore the racks carefully. You will have to face 4 of your enemies in this round before you are given a chance to diffuse the bomb. Good luck! By the way, Kingpin is still on the loose... Have you seen your girlfriend lately?
I was intrigued to say the least.
It seemed like his mission was a good one and it made me want to find all those criminals and put them back in the slammer! Even though it took a moment to get adjusted to his moves. I was ready to rock!
Personally, I enjoyed the web-slinging fun. It was cool to swing over enemies' heads and block laser fire with a ball of web.
I definitely think there are enough villains in the game. Spidey could use some more acrobatic movements: He's a little stiff at times. The game could also use a few trap doors and fallen objects for a little more kick!
WILL YOU LIKE IT?
If you're a Spidey fan, you definitely will!! You get to see all the old villains of the past and take them on, one-on-one. The first stage was a little boring, but it picks up further into the game especially in the sewers.
