as long as the web swinging and combat are like web of shadows then i doubt i'll have anything to complain about. web of shadows is the first game to really capture spider-man especially in terms of combat.
Variety says Prototype studio will follow open-world action game with webslinging superhero series; High Moon to make non-movie Transformers title.
Radical Entertainment is finishing up its open-world action game Prototype for a June 9 release, but the developer is doubtlessly looking forward to its next projects as well. In addition to a potential Prototype sequel, Variety is citing "several sources" in reporting today that Radical parent company Activision has the studio working on a new game in the Spider-Man franchise.
If Radical has been assigned to Marvel's webheaded wonder, it would see the studio come full circle in a way. Radical's current project, Prototype, has drawn comparisons to its previous open-world action game, 2005's highly regarded The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. That game in turn bore more than a passing resemblance to Activision's 2004 Spider-Man 2 movie game.
The Variety article also mentions Radical's fellow Activision subsidiary, High Moon Studios. Having yet to create a game for its new parent compnay, the former Vivendi outfit has only two titles to its credit: the vampire-Western shooter Darkwatch and the James Bond rival Bourne Conspiracy. With Treyarch already handling the Bond series for Activision, Variety indicates that High Moon has been tasked with the Transformers franchise.
However, High Moon's first project for the giant robots won't be this summer's movie tie-in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. That game is deep in development at Luxoflux, meaning High Moon would be working on a Transformers title for next year or later and, according to the trade magazine, one not tied directly to a major film release.
While High Moon and Radical were kept by Activision after the Vivendi merger, they were not left untouched. Last year both studios reportedly underwent significant layoffs.
As of press time, an Activision representative had not returned GameSpot's requests for comment.
Activision was merciful in releasing all Spiderman PC games in the original console format after disappointing us with a kiddie version of Spiderman 2. I hope they continue their recent trend and not backpedal to KiddieLand.
I No for a fact that if they do make another spider-man game it's not going to have anything new, web of shadows was rediculously good and it had all his elements. prototype is unlimited in a way haha he can do it better than spider-man! oh by the way this game allready freakin ROCKS!!!!!
spider man 2 the game is cooler than 3 for me i hope they don't name the new ps to come the ps4 it sounds weird
its not spider-man spider-man dont have cool powers like this guy does spider-man only can web and punch and stick to walls this is way cooler
Alrite how many you guys agree with me? The following is what a winning Spider-man game needs: * A long and nice comic book story beginning from his origins and including fan fav comics such as secret wars etc. * Atleast 10 bosses including Venom, Sinister Six and Goblin cos spidey's villain gallery is one of the best. * Cutting edge graphics in both cutscenes and gameplay * Amazing combo system fighting and webswinging mechanics (they should include everything web of shadows offered us) * A decision system where your choice affects the path (in a better way than wos) * Open world gameplay with a large and interactive city to explore with plenty of meaningful and fun side missions. Anything else to add guys?
Hell yea, if it's a Spider man game then it's as good as in my hands already Since he is and has always been my favorite Super hero. I hope it ends up being a very good game worthy of being called a Spider man game.
Spider-man:Web of shadows had to be one of my favorite games,it was amazing!,i hope this new spiderman is sort of like a sequel to it cuz i loved it!,i dont lyk this new character in this new game,bring back the real spiderman!
i love Spider-Man, but if this new game is anything like web of shadows...well i'm gonna be disappointed
Spiderman 2 was so close to being the perfect Spiderman game. They really messed things up with Spiderman 3 (although they added some neat ideas). I hope Radical can perfect the game with their installment. I'm getting sick of all the potential that gets lost.
Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction was a under-rated game IMO. If Prototype does become a success I will be looking forward to see what they can do with Spider-Man.
and also Superheroes games r getting alot of hype lately havta wait for Arkham Asylum and Origins to find out if it'll live upto its own hype
prototype seems awesome as ever and Darkwatch is a prety gud game frm wat i've heard so High Moon Studios has gr8 chances to pull out Variety
the last decent spiderman game (in my opinion) was Spiderman - Enter the Electro on the PS1. That had quite a decent plythrough and good story mode..(although i was only 6 then :)) Can't wait for [PROTOTYPE] but I fear it will not live up to the hype!
Smart move. Prototype is an excellent showcase for what Radical can do, and it may just carve out a nice little niche for them genre wise. On the condition that Prototype is a success, they may be given an even larger budget to handle licensed properties like Spidey, and hopefully pour on greater production values, which I'm afraid seem missing even from an exciting property like Prototype. The game LOOKS budget, but seems to play quite well.
If they do half a good as job on Spidey as they did with Prototype it'll be the best Spider-Man game out to date. You can bet on that fellow web heads.
all spiderman posters: it's aaall about prototype now, and what I saw in the trailer made my mouth drop.
If the prototype works, this is a dream come true! :D If not, they can redeem themselves with Spider-man! :D God help them if they mess up Spider-man (not threadning them)
If Prototype is good then I'll be very interested in their Spider Man game....cause I love good Spider Man game(?)...Spider Man 2 on PS2.
Loved Spidey Web of Shadows. Not as good as Neversofts first game on the PS1 though, but still awesome. Prototype looks good - I think Radicals perfect for the job.
this is almost exactly like Ultimate Destruction just with a different dude and its next gen... sweet.
I'm finally playing through Spidey: Web of Shadows at the moment, and while it's not a bad game, there are some definite flaws that a team like Radical could definitely improve on. Looking forward to seeing what they can do. I still find Hulk: Ultimate Destruction to the best superhero game ever made.
I like to dream of a Transformers generation 1 game being developed by High Moon, I've been waiting for a real Transformers game since 1986
