Game description: Experience an all-new combat system, two exciting ways. Redesigned from the ground up, a unique combat system empowers both Spider-Man and Black-Suited Spider-Man to perform suit-specific powers and abilities. State of the art animations, combos and finishers make punch, kick and web attacks more super-heroic than ever. Battle 10 of Spider-Man-s most infamous enemies from the movie and Marvel universe, including Sandman and Venom.
Loosely based on the Spider-Man 3 film, the game's plot fallows and expands on the film by including additional characters and elements from the Spider-Man comics and the Marvel Universe.

Known Issues

Game can freeze randomly with audio issues

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Major
  • Description: The game can freeze randomly at some specific checkpoints, with a distorted looping sound playing over. It seems to be related to the game trying to play multiple sounds\tracks at the same time.
  • Workaround: Go to Config > Memory cards, click on each non grayed out memory card followed by a click on "Eject". Then reboot the game. It should now start the level, but the next checkpoint will cause the game to freeze unless certain settings are changed.

Endless loading screen after completing the first mission

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Major
  • Description: When you complete the first mission, you'll eventually get to a loading screen. The game still seems to be responsive, but instead of advancing, it's stuck permanently loading.
  • Workaround: Enable the external pnach file that allows the game to pass through the second level

Distorted\Choppy audio

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: The game's sounds are not well emulated, and many sounds are skipped\choppy, including dialogue and music, interrupted after a midsecond.
  • Workaround: There is no known workaround
