how did that suck? its what the game should be sure all around game play could be better but to have the full feel of spiderman you need sandbox freedom and big name villains plus cameos form other heroes.

i think Spider-man SD was a great game until i beat it when i wish i could free roam around the different dimensions. I want to see another Spidey game like Ultimate Spider-man but in the amazing universe and with just about every big villain and comic book happening all jumbled into the greatest Spider-man game of all time. oh and with every alternate suit available

maybe they sould do a game where like shattered dimensions you have a variety of spider men and you can free roam and do missions and save the day and maybe even find time for mary-jane or gwen stacey ;P

Yeah man, Sand-box games are the future. Shattered Dreams was okay, but I played it once and I'll never go back to it. There's no reason to play it again, because it's not going to be any different! Good to see Spidey: 2099 though, only reason I bought the game in the first place. A 2099 sand-box game, there's potential Activision... take note, I'm giving you gold here!!

Are you KIDDING me?! What are you people on, crack AND heroin? Shattered Dimensions was the WORST Spider-Man game EVER! How the hell do you have a Spider-Man game that ISN'T a sand-box? That takes away the funnest aspect, WEB SWINGING!Back in the days of Maximum Carnage and Separation Anxiety, it was understandable that they weren't sandboxes. Sandbox back then was lame. But this travesty that was Shattered Dimensions is just garbage. Damn a linear game, damn it to Hell.

What the world needs is a Spider-Man: Brand New Day video game. Am I right?

A new Maximum Carnage game would be epic! That was one of my favorite games as a kid though nearly impossible to beat. Shattered Dimensions rocked but was anyone else a little tweaked that they took away (or at least hugely diminished) one of the coolest parts of most previous Spider-Man games....? The free-roaming webslinging?? That was the best part of the previous games! As good as Shattered Dimensions was, Web of Shadows is still my favorite.

I wish they would do a modern Maximum Carnage game, with online multiplayer (co-op, or other)

Shattered Dimensions was great. It's probably my favourite game. So this is very good news.
