I really wanted to like this Sega-developed game starring Marvel’s web-slinger, but the truth is, despite the attractive graphics and animation, it’s a pretty dull game.
Yes, there are four playable heroes to choose from, and playing with friends probably does earn this System 33-powered brawler bonus points, but as a single player effort, the limited roster of moves and cast of uninspired enemies does little to make you FEEL like a crime-fighting superhero. Even Spidey himself looks fed-up with life, given how he shuffles nonchalantly across the screen!
I guess for 1991 the graphics and Marvel licence would have been a draw to arcade-goers, but compared to the likes of Konami’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Spider-Man is just a bit too much of a snorefest to recommend.
