"The game is tackling just about every platform, including the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 2. DS, PlayStation Portable, and Game Boy Advance." That was said about the game, but in the interview the dude said it's gonna be on the pc too. I wonder if it will or will not.

I really enjoyed the open world of Spiderman 2. I hope the gameplay is longer this time around and I hope the combat and street crimes are majorly improved. I might pick this game up in the next year(there is a lot I want to spend my money on ;)), or I might rent it and buy it later when it's a bit cheaper than $60.

I think that the second game was cool outside, but there needs to be more indoor fighting.

the first game was definately not that great, it was pretty bad, but the second game was beyond awesome. it had the elements needed to make a spiderman game great. and this time around, they are just going to incorporate what they already had in the last one into the new one, but revamped. but they are going to have many more additions to the gameplay, all of which have been said will be an even more incredible spidey experience. just you wait, its going to be awesome

The second game was a huge step up compared to the first, especially the swinging. A better fighting system would make this an incrdible game.

best part of the second was just swinging around the city i hope the pc game is a port of the ps3, and not the ps2 game

The first 2 games sucked pretty bad. It needs a huge makeover, especially the combat and AI.
