5 Great Spider-Man Video Games (And 5 That Sucked)

Web-zipping his way from console to console, a few games failed to make our Spider-Sense tingle.


Is there a gamer on this Earth that wasn't at least impressed by Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4?

Becoming an instant classic and arguably one of the best superhero games to debut since Batman's Arkham series, as we impatiently await the sequel, there's no time like the present to take a look back at the many other Spider-Man titles that graced our consoles.

Our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man has appeared in more than 50 games, many of which were his own titles. From the arcade and Atari to PS4 and mobile apps, the web slinger has given us hours of game play.

Unfortunately, some of those hours were not time well spent.

Now that we're spoiled with a fantastic open-world game that captured the essence of Peter Parker, it's easy to forget about the droves of other Spider-Man games we've been given over the last 30+ years.

There are a handful of similar games that rank in the elite with Marvel's Spider-Man but most of them are surrounded by mediocre to poor attempts that feel more like cash-grabs than quality efforts.
