Spider-Man 2 Game Ships 2 Million Copies

  1. Just earlier today we were following a review of Spiderman2 the game, which had not a great deal good to say about the game.

    However, it looks like Activision is still shipping a healthy volume of copies of the game.

    "While Activision's release announced units shipped not units sold, analysts had predicted the game to be a standout during the characteristically slow summer months. The game probably owes some of its success to the film's phenomenal showing in theaters this past weekend. Spider-Man 2 the movie broke box-office records by raking in $40.4 million on opening day and $115.8 million over the weekend. The previous record was set by Spider-Man in 2002."

    Has anyone actually played this game, and can they confirm whether its just a load of pants cashing in on the release of the movie, or whether its actually worth playing?
     
  2. The console versions are decent. The PC version on the other hand, is a piece of dung.

    Dung? Could you elaborate?

    I am dying to know what's bad about this game.
     
  4. The PC version was made to be kiddy, I am not sure why they desided to make a completely differently game for PC and have the console versions have the adult/teen versions, but this is how it went down.

    "The Sims" is a hit with female gamers (or those that like watching soaps/big brother, etc.). Girls see it a replacement for their barbie doll/wendy house (apparently).

    Any blokes playing it?

    I must admit, the movie looks cool.

    I have no intention of buying (or anything else ;) ) the game.

    Same here P66, I figure the game is pretty bad, most games after movies are :p They gotta rush it out for the movie deadline.

    Bit of topic, but with what agissi is saying, its such a shame EA managed to wreck LOTR into a short half action game that gets boring after one go, what a trilogy of fims too...such a shame.
