Spider-Man: S.H.I.E.L.D. Survival Guide

By Jim Rossignol on October 10th, 2008 at 8:55 am.


A new Spider-Man game, Web of Shadows, is inbound on the 21st of this month, and Activision have coughed up this moderately entertaining “public-information” trailer to explain just what the plot of the latest web-slinging game has in store for us. Venom, that pesky symbiote, is up to no good…

    I dunno that it “works” as such, but I found that trailer to be more entertaining than I should have done. I hope this game is more Spider-Man 2 than Spider-Man 3.

    I bet it’ll be shit

    “Uncomfortable discharge.”

    Damn, doctor said that would sort itself out.

    hmm, this trailer reminds me of a certain other game set in New York, where people are becoming infected and have super strength and agility etc.
    (can’t remember the name of that on mind, was it Symbiote?)
    Still, all looks like it could be fun (assuming it’s not just another crappy console port….)

    S.H.I.E.L.D? Is it just me but did other people think of the game unit in “Act of War”?

    Funny clip.

  6. Kast says:

    @Phuzz – I think you’re thinking about Prototype

  7. Ketch says:

    Looks craptastic, sorry.

  8. phuzz says:

    @Kast, that’s it Prototype,
    doesn’t this trailer look like Prototype eh?

  9. cullnean@lycos.com says:

    looks fine to me hopefully with more new avengers references

    Hahahaha I love the lack of expression in the “civilian” symbiotes.

    The engine doesn’t look it it’s up to much. But if they can keep up this levity whilst continuing to pepper it with darker tones like loss of rights and oppression then this could be something special. Just please return to the style of Spider Man 2 and sack everyone involved with the follow up.

    Also, aeroplanes in New York? So we can have that now then without them banning the game. Or is Media going to act like the game ships with a quote from bin Laden on the front and a picture of him giving it a thumbs up in the top corner.

    I would totally buy that game.

    Graphics: 6 / 10

    Humour: 8 / 10

    it looks more like the pre-film Spiderman game than anything else. Symbiote invasions, famous characters being bonded to by symbiotes, nobody around.
