TA Review : http://toucharcade.com/2010/08/31/sp...s-overpowered/
Quote:
There's a surprising amount of content in Spider-Man: Total Mayhem, including a hefty amount of unlockables to boost replay value. Twelve levels are included, and in each of the levels are tokens you can pick up to unlock bonus art to look at. In addition, there's an "ultimate" difficulty to unlock as well as a boss rush mode. There's even the black Spider-Man symbiote suit to unlock to play through the game again with Spidey powered up. Also, when fighting bosses you have opportunity to take photos of them, and these photo opportunities seem fairly easy to miss. If you're a completionist, you will be playing through Spider-Man: Total Mayhem many times.

Total Mayhem is loaded with high resolution graphics that look absolutely fantastic on the iPhone 4. It's not universal, but like most Gameloft games it wouldn't surprise me if an iPad-specific HD release was on the horizon. Gameloft did a great job of making a game that plays like a Spider-Man game needs to. The spider sense seems entirely overpowered in combat, and it won't take long for you to get tired of the spider sense quick action sequences that are liberally used in cut scenes, but beating up an endless array of nameless thugs is just as fun as it should be.

- This is much more nitpicky but I'd like an option to change the position of the evade / Spidey sense button to the right hand side. But of course screen space makes this a tricky one so it's really what I imagine I'd find easier rather than what is practical for the developer. So not a complaint as such.

All in all, this seems very promising. Excellent visuals, a very nice combat engine and extremely slick.

All I can say is if your a marvel fan and want a super hero fix till someone does an open world game for our Idevices then you can't go too wrong with this.
Ps sorry the spelling / grammar is crap as it's almost 3 am in uk n have been playing n drinking since 12.

2) Spider-Man dont look like ultimate spider-man. this should be a 16 year old peter parker? this is a grown man under the suit.
3) Spider-Man has awesome karate power like chun-li in street fighter. wtf! peter gets his ass kicked all the time in the ultimate universe because he has no skills.

I dont they put together an awesome spiderman game but this is not an ultimate spiderman game.

This game is really fun and pretty impressive for an app.... i was running the game on my 2nd generation ipod and the game was running smoothly. Spiderman does some insane tricks in this game so i was kinda shocked to not witness any slowdowns.... The game is really fun and responsive... i died a couple of times by human error. Plus the game pushes you to revisit levels beacuse they have a lot of collectables from artwork to improving spidermans attributes...... Overall a really fun spiderman game!!!!!!!!!!!! worth the price!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great job Gameloft you finally made a fun kick-ass game!!!

Besides N.O.V.A., this is the best Gameloft game to date.

Downside: the story is just stupid, without any consistency and ridiculous.

BUT: everything else... wow! The graphics are nice (retina shine), although quite simple - but you can destroy many objects in the environment (cars, tables, stuff like that). The music is great and has a certain Batman (Nolan) touch. The fighting is AWESOME. It's just so much fun to fight in this game, way, way better then Avatar, HOS and friends. Many moves, beautiful moves, Spidy moves Controls are pretty perfect. I love it.

As I said, 6 AM and I still wanna continue playing.
Big thanks to Gameloft, you know the system like just a few other devs.

Production values could be considered beaten by Spider-Man 2 on the PSP, but that game is a few years old and cost $43 more. So far, the story is laughable and dialog is horrible (though Gameloft gets a thumbs up for including voice-acting at all). I'm missing a real story with other characters. I hope I run around as plain, old Peter Parker, that's always made Spidey games more fun since you juggle both lives.

Now that that's out of the way, combat is fun. There's a lot of combos that work well together, and implemented nicely (though they're not original in the Spidey gaming universe). Web-slinging to fly around is poor when there aren't circles showing you what to grab onto. Part of the fun of a Spidey game is swinging around from building to building. Graphics pop on the iPhone 4, and if a true 2D look in a fully 3D game is going to be accomplished anytime soon, it'll be on the Retina Display.

It's a pretty fun game, bringing back memories of Spider-Man 2 on Xbox, as well as countless other Spider-Man games I've played on devices dating back to the GameBoy Color. Well this is far from Spider-Man 2 in terms of everything (as expected), this is fun and worth $6.99. The combat system and the graphics make the game, both fortunately and unfortunately (swinging around NYC without markers could have made the game, among other things).

It looks so childish with all those bright primary colours. Even the original comic feels more grown up than this, which reminds me more of Mickey Mouse or Anastasia.

Such a shame as Spiderman is my favourite Marvel superhero!

Agreed. Isn't it always the case where they take something that always so highly esteemed and "glorify it"

I agree about the 'childish' part. Definitely not going to buy, but I am interested in others experiences.

I was surprised by all the positive feedback that this gained from review sites.
