Ranking Every Spider-Man Game EVER From Worst to Best

Multiple Blue Rings

Spider-Man! Spider-Man! Marvel’s most popular superhero has spanned decades of adaptations, including a wide array of games! How could you possible rank every Spider-Man game without going mad?

So let’s do it. Every single Spider-Man game. If it spins webs or crawls on walls, we’re covering it. The only exception here is cameos – sorry, Ultimate Alliance fans!

Now, I know what you’re thinking – Spider-Man 2 was a great game! Yes, yes it was… if you had a console. Whereas Activision, in their infinite “wisdom” decided that PC players should have an entirely separate game. A game that, mind you, has almost nothing to do with the console version.

“IT’S TIME TO CHISEL ME SOME SPIDER-JELLY!” – SPIDER-MAN 2 FOR PC (IS THE WORST SPIDER-MAN GAME)

Remember Happy Meal games? Those little fake games that are basically just a handful of unanimated sprites you can sorta manipulate on the screen? Well, there was a time when a company by the name of Tiger Electronics thought you could charge actual money for such barely functional technology.

AMAZING? NOT QUITE – SPIDER-MAN: WEB OF SHADOWS: AMAZING ALLIES FOR PS2 AND PSP

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows for 7th gen systems is Treyarch’s ambitious last superhero game before diving into Call of Duty. It wasn’t a perfect game, but it was bold, ambitious, and daring. It’s a Spider-Man game where you could become the villain if you so pleased, with a giant – for the time – open world! There’s also the DS version, which was a Metroidvania throwback.

Spider-Man: The Sinister Six is a rare oddity in gaming. It’s a Full Motion Video project, but it’s animated instead of live-action. It has two entirely different art styles, barely any functional animations, and a branching narrative where the only change in outcome is at the very end of the story and makes no sense.

MORTAL YAWN-BAT – THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN AND CAPTAIN AMERICA IN DOCTOR DOOM’S REVENGE FOR PC

It seems for every single franchise full of games, there’s an obligatory fighting game that falls flat. Yet not even Masters of the Teras Kasi has to worry about being outperformed by this wordsoup of a game. You aren’t even fighting cool Marvel villains most of the time – Grey Gargoyle, Machte, Zaran, Oddball, and Batroc the Leaper are joined by just a few Spider-Man villains and Dr. Doom.

SKIN-CRAWLING – THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN FOR PC

To give you an idea of how limited game design was when The Amazing Spider-Man was developed, the idea of platforming alongside brawling and puzzle solving was a novel concept.
