Reviewed: Spider-Man 2 PSP

Last summer, gamers were given an immense treat - Spider-Man 2, the video game, on all three noteworthy consoles. While they had some graphical differences, the engine was the same in each, and the gameplay was rock-solid. Storyline, for many gamers, took a small back seat to the fun of roaming Manhattan via spiderweb, beating up petty thugs and generally exploring the scenery.

This year, PSP gamers were given something quite different; a steaming turd calling itself Spider-Man 2 for the PSP. Gone is the roaming gameplay, gone is the web-slinging ability that made traveling in the game fun. In its place is the old engine from earlier Spider-Man titles, where "webslinging" meant "hold R to go forward." This is a Spider-Man title that could easily have come out as a Playstation original such as Spider-Man 2 Enter: Electro years ago, but with the movie's storyline grafted on.
