It's slightly belated, but with the slaw that is November, we can sometimes get a bit bogged down, or maybe it's just that in the case of Spider-Man: Edge of Time, it was a slog to get deep enough into the game to get a full review of it.

At least that was the case with Andy "Butters" Bulmer, a long-time Spider-Man fan and my co-comic book collector from our teenage years (and no, we weren't covered in pimples, sporting braces and incapable of talking to girsl). Obviously he got the short-end of the comic book videogame review straw though, with me grabbing the Caped Crusader, and him getting... well... whatever Spider-Man is these days (in videogame form).

Let's make a spiderman game... and base it entirely indoors! Brilliant! Seriously I don't know why they thought this would be a great idea but no one buys spiderman games for the combat. Why does it seems so damn hard to re-create the immense fun of #2 from the PS2?

I toyed with asking him to write his entire review about what should be in a Spider-Man game, but then I thought maybe we could look at that down the track.

But seriously, after gliding around Arkham City as Batman without touching the ground, there's absolutely no reason you couldn't do it with Spidey. Recreate New York in epic scale, size up Spider-Man on the screen so the sensation is amplified and give gamers a massive amount of freedom to be the Web-Slinger

If any studio was going to do a game like that it would be rocksteady I think. After the way Arkham City ended I would hope they move on to another series and spidey is just begging for a good game.

rocksteady are owned by warner bros now, so that's never going to happen :(

Indeed, noone wants to run around indoors as Spiderman, they want to spray spider-goo all over Mary Jane.
