    Bad points are bland boss fights and not much new in terms of gameplay and gets a 3/5(basically 6/10) rating. Funny how CoD games get 9/10, 10/10s for doing just that.

    Pokemon has been doing that since the first game and it still receives 9's and 10's. :) I think the difference is that those are technically proficient while the Spiderman games have always had mediocre gameplay mechanics.

    Yeah but the Pokemon games (at least story wise) have done nothing but improve. Compare say, the story of red/blue to the story of black/white for example, Black/White also showing this improvement by being the first Pokemon gen with full fledged sequels to continue the story. Call of Duty on the other hand never really adds anything to the story(Black Ops 2 has potential, sure, but thats all we can go on at the moment), their multiplayer(the thing people actually play it for) hasn't had anything remotely new added to it in years. Each new Cod game is essentially a $60 map pack that resets your rank to 1 again. Now we can look at Spider-Man. Sure, most spiderman games haven't been the greatest but from what I recall Spiderman 2 was actually a pretty well received title, if this game is essentially an updated version of that gameplay wise than I don't see the problem. I also don't see how "spoiling the movie plot" can be considered a bad point. It's like saying a bad point of the Harry Potter or Game of Thrones books are that they spoil the Movies/TV series for you, especially when you consider this is spiderman, no one should really look at this movie and guess what's going to happen if they know the basics of the characters. So my point still stands, a series as bland and unchanging as the CoD franchise keeps getting 9s/10s for doing nothing refreshing while Spiderman loses marks because it's no better than Spiderman 2.

    A Rhino Fight...... Wouldn't be a spider-man game without it.
