Spider-Man: Friend or Foe , is a side-scrolling beat-em-up, in the style of Capcom classics like Final Fight. Only in this case you’re able to control Spiderman, or one of his enemies, inheriting the unique powers of each character. The game sees him team up with the unlikeliest of allies to save New York from a plague of militant aliens. Weirdly, once you’ve defeated the likes of Doc Octopus, Green Lantern and Venom in Spider-Man: Friend or Foer, they become allies and co-operate with Spidey to blast the bad guys. Each of the fairly diverse levels in Spider-Man: Friend or Foe charges you with the task of defeating the aliens as you traverse from one end to the other. Unfortunately these baddies don’t have much in the way of artificial intellegence, but because there are so many of the critters the game is still pretty challenging. Graphically, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe borrows more elements from the comic than it does from the film, giving it a surprisingly humorous aspect. Humorous, that is, until Spidey’s incessesant wise-cracking becomes boring.
One of the saving graces for the title is the visuals and sound quality. The game opts for an art style that delivers a more comic book style Spiderman universe rather than the realism we have seen in other games of the time period. The environments consist of different international locations and are quite well presented in truth. The textures are far from stunning but they are simple and effective which is all they really need to be. Then in terms of sound quality, the voice acting within this game is impressive, with each actor capturing the essence of every character within the universe and delivering a performance that has a range of emotions and expressive tones which helps to keep the rather weak story somewhat engaging.
The map editor ships with the game at launch, opening up a potentially infinite amount of map variation for the future. The eight maps that ship with the game are, for the most part, asymmetrical, well designed and feel balanced. It feels great playing on non-mirrored maps for once. The campaign and story are above average for an RTS game. The story is supremely compelling with fantastically animated cutscenes (the best I’ve ever seen) and the campaign offers subtle, interesting variations on the skirmish gameplay through fifteen lengthy missions. It will likely take you a couple of days to complete the campaign and some of the later mission are quite challenging indeed.
