If you adored the last game like we did (along with Ultimate Spider-Man), you're going to be let down. Perhaps you won't mind the same-as-before gameplay, but we should expect more from a series that's generally done the movies justice. As it is, Spider-Man 3 is so by the numbers, so average that we just can't muster much enthusiasm. Comic fans'll hate the inconsistent power levels while hardcore gamers will balk at how routine it feels. Maybe the super-casual, movie-going audience won't mind, but the rest of us certainly should.
