Let’s be honest, the long history of Spiderman video games have really left a lot to be desired. Aside from the old Sega Genesis version, the only one that I ever got into was Ultimate Spiderman a few years back. The new game from Activision though, Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions
, looks to buck the trend of less-than-stellar games and seems to be going for an extremely interesting take on the Spiderman story.
posted some new screenshots of the game this week that just further cement my hope(s) for this game. Long story short: the mysterious Tablet of Order and Chaos has been shattered and disbursed throughout 4 various dimensions. Gamers will need to take control of the Spidermen (is that the right phrase?) from each dimension, who all control and behave drastically different, and collect the shatter pieces to restore order to all of the dimansions. The only two Spiderman version that have been shown thus far are the amazing Spiderman and Spiderman Noir... but there will be two more, all new versions created for the game. I can’t wait! Check out a couple of new shots below:
