Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is a video game title encompassing three versions: a full-3D action game for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Microsoft Windows and Wii; a 2.5D sidescrolling beat em up action game for the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2 (called Amazing Allies Edition), and a 2.5D side-scrolling brawler/platformer for the Nintendo DS.
At various points in the game, the player will be able to choose between good and evil paths. There are multiple endings depending on how the game is played out. In addition, the player will decide which villains to fight against. The player will be able to switch between the classic red and blue suit, and the Symbiote suit at any time during gameplay. Red and blue-suited Spider-Man is fast and agile, while Symbiote Spider-Man is stronger and more destructive.

Hey guys and girls, welcome to another one of my Let's Plays!

I'm a huge Spider-Man fan and have been ever since I was a kid. So now that I got my hands on this game's PC version, I'm really looking forward to a fun and exciting LP. A lot of people may say negative things about this game,but when it comes down to it, it's a really fun Spider-Man game and that's what it's all about. Please keep the discussion of how much better Spider-Man 2's webswinging is to a minimum ;)

So, I hope you'll enjoy this as much as I will and will follow me on my journey through the Webhead's version of Manhattan.

Please note that you can vote on whether I should go as Red&Blue or Black Spidey. I will do a complete run through being only good or only bad,depending on the vote, constantly switching and being something of a neutral guy is not my kinda thing. I personally prefer Red&Blue from a gameplay point of view and Black for the story. You decide!

Set 01 - Your friendly(?) neighborhood Spider-Man
Set 02 - You wore a tiara!
Set 03 - Here, Kitty Kitty Kitty!
Set 04 - High Altitude, Lowsy Opponents
Set 05 - Deranged Wallcrawlers
Set 06 - Danger, Symbiotic Voltage
Set 07 - Riding the Rhino
Set 08 - Shockingly Slimy
Set 09 - Birds in a web
Set 10 - Symbiote Road Bus
Set 11 - Swing to the end

    wow just after the first video i already hate the VA for spidey. how could anyone think that was good for the game/character?

    i almost picked this game up a few weeks ago but read about how bad of a port it was and shied away so i'll definitely be watching.although after watching the first set ,outside of the voice acting and the volume issue it didn't seem to play that terrible so far.

    i'll vote red spidey even though the voice is slightly better on symbiote spidey (which i'm still trying to figure out how it split from the main venom/brock symbiote.)

    You're a machine, Klyka. A wonderful german machine.

    This game looks like a lot of fun; so I can't wait to see it play out. The swinging is fine, so I'm going to first vote that you don't have to cut for a mission. I'm sure if it becomes a problem later we might change it, but for now, it's entertaining enough to watch.

    But I did have a question about that. Does Black Spidey swing mostly the same as Red and Blue Spidey? I think the majority of the time you were swinging around, it was as Red spidey and even during the second vid, you more ran and jumped instead.

    It's kind of a hard vote for me. I can imagine the story might be better for Black Spidey, but being able to throw cars seems pretty meh, especially when Red gets to fly around and teleport and such. And as mentioned the VA for the Black Spidey (Got, that's getting tiring to type out >.> ) is much better.

    I'd like to vote Black Spidey because of the better story/VA, but ultimately, I think Red will be more entertaining to watch. So I'm voting Red and Blue suit.

    Is the PC version of this game like how the other PC versions of Spiderman games are? That is, complete pieces of shit? There was one with the preplanned swing points (I think it was for Spiderman 2).

    edit: Hmm, it appears that this game has brought back "helicopter" web swinging. That is, the web attaches to the sky (The cartoon would joke that there was a helicopter off screen every time Spidey did that)

    double edit: Oh wait, it does attach to buildings. So how is the webswinging different this time around? Does it just feel different?

    triple edit: AUGGGGGGGGGGH HIS VOICE IS TERRIBLE!

    his voice really isn't bad. It's only fucking horrible in the intro. It appears that the voice actor did not excel in making a panicked voice.

    Yeah, it got better once Luke Cage showed up. It started to go into a more "aw shucks" mode.

    But seriously, "Everything's gonna be okay. I love my present!"

    It's a great place to set a game. Lots of streets and tall buildings that you can jump off of. Also, it's fairly familiar to many people.

    Well the game has Robin Atkin Downes, of smoldering generic rage fame. And Tricia Helfer, so it's got "celebrite".

    Apparently, one of Luke Cage's canned lines is "It's Christmas time, baby!" a la Terry Tate.

    More people need to vote Black suit so I can get my Spidey on with sweet sweet Tricia Helfer/Black Cat.
    That voice.... SO SEDUCTIVE.

    The swinging isn't really bad,it just doesn't have the same "realistic" physics that Spider-Man 2 had. Which basically means I can pull off lots of cool looking stuff easily. Also, I can swing upwards and suddenly GAIN speed and push further up. It's...weird, but helps a lot.

    I'll try to keep the repetitiveness to a minimum,but it IS a sandbox Spidey game,so we basically only have swinging,punching,swinging and some more punching.
    I will definitely NOT abuse the Webzip-Attack though.

    After a quick IMDBing, Changing my vote to Black Suit. I've heard her play Black Cat in the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoons. Very much a fan. (Also, I just really wanted the Black Suit story.)

    The swinging actually looks pretty rad. Cartoony, but that's what I expect. I don't want buildings to get in my way when I swing!

    Was that a Take 5 gum ad I saw? Product placement?

    edit: Hmm, lot of black space at the end of that last video. Good though.

    This game has the best orb colecting.... well, as good as you can get. You can see those things from a mile off. ALso, black spidey needs moar time. I played through r&b spidey because i didn't like the black spidey moves. But after youtubing it, I really should've spent more time on it.

    Also, what do you use to capture the footage and put it onto the pc?

    oh. My bad, watching it on the laptop and the 'press A' on the initial video threw me off. I'm guessing you're using the 360 pad? In any case, good job. I love this game to bits. Takes alot to come back from the abortion that is spidey 3. Different devs, I know, but still, they had their work cut out for them.

    Wiki says the developers of this game are the same guys who developed Spiderman 3. And apparently are working on Call of Duty 7.

    The developers have got to be foreign, since the script is so awkwardly American.
