The 10 Best Spiderman Games for PC. How Many of These Spiderman Games Have You Played?

With Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 gradually creeping towards us, it’s a great time to look back at the best of the web-crawler’s forays into the world of gaming.

There are few heroes to have as many videogame adaptations as your friendly neighbourhood Spider-man, and the sheer volume of this catalogue makes it difficult to choose just 11 favourites. We managed it however, so strap in true believers and let’s start.

10. Ultimate Spider-Man

Ultimate Spider-Man Gameplay

I have often felt this one didn’t receive as much love as it deserved. I played this on the Xbox when it came out back in 2005, and to this day it remains one of my all-time favourite Spider-man games.

The first thing that sets it apart from most other Spider-man games, is it’s deliberately comic-book feel, with its cell shaded characters and environments. It makes no attempt at all to look realistic, and the finished product is all the better for it. This aesthetic does come off as a little silly at times (the ridiculous size of the spider that bites Peter to give him his powers comes to mind), but overall it’s very well done.

The thing that is most likely to sell a Spider-man fan on this game however, is the fact that you aren’t just playing Peter Parker and fighting villains. In Ultimate Spider-man your time is split between Peter/Spider-Man, and Eddie Brock/Venom. That’s right, you get to play Venom, and that includes open free-roam after you beat the game. The Ultimate incarnation of the fan-favourite symbiote has a different backstory (being an experiment rather than an alien) but that aside the story is interesting, and the game plays very differently depending on which of the two characters you are playing. Spider-man is faster and does less damager per shot, whereas Venom is a lot more powerful but is also slower. In addition, Venom gets around via jumping and climbing rather than the use of web-shooters, and his health constantly depletes slowly due to the suit feeding upon its host. Don’t worry though, because Venom can feed on just about anyone and drain health out of them.

It’s a quirky little Spider-man game, but it has a great deal of character. If you are a fan of Spidey at all, this one is a must play.

Like, there is no way whatsoever that he wouldn’t either feel that, or see it!

The size difference between Spidey and Venom is almost comical when you fight each other
