Spider-Man 2TM, the highly anticipated follow-up to Activision’s 2002 smash hit, is the first game to fully immerse players in the role of Spider-Man and propels them into a living city teeming with common criminals, super villains and pedestrians. Set in a massive free-roaming, do-anything, virtual city, players swing from buildings, sling webs on structures, dive from roof tops to sidewalks, jump across skyscrapers and scale tall heights as they patrol and protect the city from the nefarious Doc Ock.
