Every now and then there's a game you hope to come out and want to love.

Ultimate Spider-Man was one of those games for me.

For the most part, it looks good, and the storyline's not bad. They've even ported over a lot of the engine from Spider-Man 2, though obviously they implemented cel shading to make it look more like the comics.

Here's where it breaks down though: they GUTTED the fighting and web-slinging engines. No longer does your web grab onto anything but buildings. No longer are there a ton of varied combat moves at your disposal. No web balls, no swinging enemies around for the fun of it.

I am so very disappointed. More when I get done writing the review.
