So this game came out earlier this week. I just downloaded it to my iPod and played the first level. I'm impressed (though that isn't saying much).
The graphics are impressive for an iPod/iPhone game, and even more impressive are the tight controls and vast array of combat and movement abilities.
The story actually seems like it could fit into the Ultimate continuity without screwing anything up (unlike the USM console game)--though I'll wait until playing through the whole game before adding it to the timeline. The story is simple but so far makes sense: something seems to have attacked the Triskelion, allowing some of Spider-Man's enemies to escape and wreak havoc on the city. Your job is to round them up, obviously.
I'll post a more thorough review after I play the game some this weekend.
So I beat this game after a few days of playing it. I enjoyed it. The combat and movement mechanics were simple, but worked well to create a dynamic, interesting sense of gameplay. The story was basic and insipidly stupid, but I can forgive that thanks to the gameplay.
