Spider-Man: Ultimate Avenger is a hilarious Spider-Man fan game that sees you propelling the wobbly ragdoll body of Marvel’s iconic web-slinger around levels to perform heroic tasks – such as delivering pizza, grabbing power-ups and erm… killing orphans?!
In Spider-Man: Ultimate Avenger you use your web-slinging skills to perform a variety of missions dealt out to you by your buddy Iron Man in some very funny cut-scenes. These tasks are all pretty weird and are designed to test the speed and accuracy of your web-slinging as you prepare you for a final showdown against an ultimate evil that has come to consume all intellectual property.
The writing, silly cutscenes and wobbly ragdoll physics are all very funny, but what most impresses about Spider-Man: Ultimate Avenger is that it’s actually a lot of fun to play. Using your webs to fling yourself around the large open city is a blast, and you can even manage a reasonable amount of accuracy once you get the hang of it. You can fire your webs across some huge distances, allowing you to build up some massive speed (then faceplant a wall in a bone-crunching collision).
Spider-Man: Ultimate Avenger may not be the most polished Spider-Man game ever released but it sure is one hell of a ride. Each new mission is a fun new surprise and your conversations with Iron Man between levels are hilarious. What’s more, it’s well known that the secret to making a good Spider-Man game is to nail the web-slinging mechanics and the devs have certainly done that. Highly recommended.
