Based on the big screen sequel to the original "Spider-Man" with Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, Spider-Man 2 features a new bad guy, Dr. Otto Octavius, who becomes grafted to a set of four mechanical arms which he can use to amazing effect… as a "mad scientist" some call "Doctor Octopus" or "Doc Ock." Can Spidey avoid getting clobbered by two of Doc Ock’s metallic appendages while avoiding the other two? The gameplay of this sequel, unlike that of the straightforward, mostly linear original, lends itself much more to the sense of freedom and exploration made popular with "Grand Theft Auto III."

Loved this game as a kid. Played it for hundreds of hours just swinging around New York fighting crime. Fun combat, with lots of combos, great villain roster (the mysterio sequence rocks).100cchenders40

Spider-Man 2 is hands down the best Marvel game ever! The best movie based game in fact! The story, physics, everything about this game is a masterpiece!100MarvelFTW
There are some great touches of humor throughout the game, especially when you encounter Mysterio (I haven’t laughed out loud at a game in quite a while).95eToychest
An absolute blast even if you do nothing more than simply swing around town. Without the extremely responsive and precise controls, this would not be possible.94GamingTrend
A surprisingly original experience.94Gamezilla!
Action, adventure, mystery, intrigue, romance, combat, exploration; this game has it all, and at times dangerously approaches becoming a simulation. That’s just how immersed you will become.93Game Chronicles

The web-slinging parts of the game are brilliantly done…Yet on the ground, the game looks and feels remarkably ugly. [Sept 2004, p.94]70Xbox Nation Magazine
While Spider-Man 2 truly puts you in the webbed booties of the wall-crawler and boasts a ton of freedom to do what you want, there’s not enough variety to keep things fresh from start to finish.75WHAM! Gaming
