    Anybody seen any sight or sound of Spiderman 3 info.
    Surely theres something out there (and I cant really see much other than that trailer posted a few weeks back).

    No reviews yet?. Seems very odd that the games is supposedly out in a week or so?

    Anything anybody?

    Well on the short blasts I had on the littlens PS2 on the 2/3 Sp[idey games so far if it's at least as good as those, control wise etc then I'm gonna be happy.

    I'm certainly itching for a new game, been a while , Graw2 being the last game I bought (except VT3, which went back cause it's no different to Top Spin in my mind).

    Yeah, it will no doubt be a lot better than the other Spidey games.

    I'm just worried that because it's also on last gen console the 360 version will just have a little bit of next gen spit and polish with very little else. We'll see though.

    I'll definately get it at some point, but I doubt I'll pick it up on release.

    Well judging by the video interviews ive seen it looks as if it was designed for the next gen consoles and the PS2 etc will just get a basic improvement over Spiderman 2. They mention that they couldnt do a lot of the stuff in Spiderman 3 on a last gen console.

    Yep, the shots I've seen look great. Hopefully they are 360 shots though.

    It is all a little strange that it isnt plastered over every release site as we speak now though. It's out in a week or so and you'ld expect a little more info that we have at present.

    I think the lack of previews is because they're scared that details about the film will be leaked out.

    I doubt it, it's supposedly out at the end of the week, 4th to conincide with the film, although an after release demo might be com,ing I suppose.

    As others have said, the film plot is pretty tight so they are most likely holding off till the end of next week before we start to see reviews:smashin:

    From the previews I have seen it is looking great, but then again, you can probably tell I am a liitle biased!

    Lets face it, it would be very hard to be as bad as Superman!

    Edit - I am sure we will get some reviews in the next day or 2 from people, as I have been informed it is already on torrent sites!

    A couple of people on my friends list are showing it on their recently played titles so it must be about already.

    Gamestation had a copy running in the 360 demo pod in Glasgow yesterday , i had a quick blast (just swinging around the city) and that mechanic worked quiet well in my opinion , don't know how big this game is but i thought the graphics were so so , the spidey animation was well do though . have to say that it just looks like previous spidey games but with shiner graphics

    I loved Spider-Man 2 on the PS2, so I'm itching to get this.

    I was looking forward to Superman Returns too, but I didn't actually buy it after the demo came out. It felt like a poor copy of Spider-Man 2.

    I'll be happy if Spider-Man 3 is little more than an HD update because the second game worked so well, the web swinging was just great. Can't wait to see the film too :clap:

    Likewise on everything you have said above. I can confirm it pretty much could well be classed as a HD update, this is not a bad thing at all! Seems very enjoyable :D and most importantly Bruce Campbell is back to narrate the whole game :cool:

    Some may think its 'more of the same', I don't think thats such a bad thing, unfortunately I only had the privelege of a couple of hours, but from what I saw its definitely one to look into getting :smashin:

    Like the two posters above I'd be happy playing a shiny version of Spidey 2 on my 360.
    Even now 3 years later I still have a swing about on the last game.

    Mine turned up this morning so I'll have a blast tonight all being well.

    I don't think details have been that sparse myself on this game, there's been trailers and gameplay vids etc turning up at least once a week for the past month. It's not like the movie trailer held that much back either.

    Just hope there is more variety in the side missions... after the main story finnished (and it was quite short) I quickly got bored with the same couple of rescue missions again and again...

    Thought it was great to start with so hopefully they will have addressed making the free roamin a bit more interesting. If they have I'll be buying it!:rolleyes:

    I was just messing about swinging for a good 30 mins or so at one point, and the stuff that 'just happens' seems more mixed than the repeated crimes in spidey 2 :)

    WHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!?!?!?

    Where did you order it from T800? I ordered mine from choices last week, so 50% hoping its there tonight, but the other 50% wants to see the film first, so wont be happy if it is there! The option would be nice though! But I'm supposed to have a Vegas tournament!

    The options are far too grand!!!!!!! :eek:

    Mine arrived this morning also - ordered through GAME.co.uk.

    Had a quick go, don't want to get too deep into the game because I also don't want to be spoiled before watching the movie. Anyway, seems fun so far, not exactly next-gen but if you've liked previous games, then I'm sure you'll love this.

    Ordered from gameplay.com, normally get games on the Thursday sometimes the Wednesday.

    I'll only have a bit of a swing about tonight, I'm quite busy tonight and tomorrow night and seeing the film Saturday afternoon so I'll I'll be able to fully geek out on it Saturday evening.

    I try not to play games based on films too much before I see the films, the chase on Matrix Reloaded was totally spoilt by playing too much of 'Enter the Matrix' beforehand.

    I think people expect too much in the way of graphics on a game like this just like Superman Returns. Not many games have this sort of scale and detail, I would imagine there's a lot more going on than in something like Saint's Row which is only ground based.

    When Spiderman 2 came out I remember my brother and his girlfriend commenting that it doesn't look as good as the Spiderman 1 game but there so much more going on than what's directly in front of you.

    thats true, as long as there is a lot to do i'll be happy the problem with Superman Returns and Spiderman 2 was the side missions were boring once completed the main game I didn't want to do much else.

    New York is really busy in this game. In fact, the whole world is pretty much a giant traffic jam! So yeah, there's a lot going on onscreen, so whilst the graphics aren't spectacular, it's very understandable.

    Makes me wonder what will happen with GTA IV though, they're putting so much effort into making it look lifelike, that I can't help but think it might not be the busy metropolis that NYC should be.

    The next GTA isn't being developed to run on 7 year old hardware (PS2) so it does have a large advantage.:smashin:
