[[WesternAnimation/SpiderMan1967 Him-a do what-ever a spider-can]], look '''out'''...''
-->-- Lyrics from this game's theme song.

'''''Spider-Man''''' is one of numerous video games to feature the eponymous MarvelComics character. However, this page is about the game simply bearing ol' web head's name & came out in the year 2000, developed by Neversoft and using the same game engine as ''VideoGame/TonyHawksProSkater'', for the {{PlayStation}} and {{Nintendo 64}} and ported to the [[SegaDreamcast Dreamcast]] and PC. For the game that was released as a tie-in to the Creator/SamRaimi film, go [[VideoGame/SpiderManTrilogy here]].

The game begins with the allegedly reformed Dr. Otto Octavius showing off a brand-new project of his at a science expo, when all of a sudden, a familiar hero clad in red-and-blue tights bursts in and steals his invention... except that Peter Parker is in the audience, watching the heist unfold. Spider-Man then finds not just the police on his tail, but every villain in the city is on a simultaneous crime spree, including Venom, after the imposter-Spidey destroyed Eddie Brock's camera and ruined his chances of getting a good shot of Spider-Man red-handed. In addition, all of New York is blanketed by a mysterious fog, and it's up to Spider-Man to sort it all out.

A sequel, titled ''[[VideoGame/SpiderMan2EnterElectro Enter Electro]]'', was released soon after, by Vicarious Visions.
----
!!This game has examples of the following tropes:

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: Seriously, SpiderMan can ''web-swing'' inside the sewers. As in "building-to-building" swing on the surface.
* AlienInvasion: PlayedWith. [[spoiler:Ock's plan is to invade New York with Earth-born alien symbiotes.]]
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Unlockable costumes in the first game include the symbiotic black suit, the costume from ''WesternAnimation/{{Spider-Man Unlimited}}'', [[ComicBook/ScarletSpider the Scarlet Spider, Ben Reilly's Spider-Man costume]], [[{{Marvel 2099}} Spider-Man 2099]], Captain Universe, Peter in civvies, the Amazing Bag Man, and Quick Change Spidey (Peter in civvies, only with his mask and gloves on).
** Although most of this costumes are purely cosmetic, some of them gave you slight handicaps or advantages; Quick Change Spidey only let you use two web cartridges, the symbiote suit has infinite web and better defense, etc.
* AnimalMotifs: Rhino [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the recurring animal motifs of Spider-Man RoguesGallery at the end.
-->'''Rhino''': So... I'm a Rhino, you're a Scorpion, and he's an Octopus... What's a Mysterio?
* BananaInTheTailpipe Spidey shuts off the bad guys' fog and compares it to this.
** In the [[WhatIf What If?]] mode, the tailpipes actually have bananas on them.
* BigBadEnsemble: [[spoiler: Dr. Octopus and Carnage.]]
* BigNo: [[spoiler: Mysterio]] gives a particularly long one after being defeated.
* BlandNameProduct: A Pork'n'Donuts billboard.
* BossOnlyLevel: "Rhino's Rampage" is just the boss fight with the titular villain.
* BraggingRightsReward: The Captain Universe costume. You've beaten Hard Mode, so you probably never even ''needed'' a costume with invulnerability, unlimited webbing, and double damage (the only thing it can't do is turn invisible).
* BullfightBoss: Rhino again. Spidey even shouts "Toro, Toro!"
* CloudCuckoolander: Venom. He doesn't realize that it ''can't'' have been the real Spider-Man who raided the expo since he bumped into Peter whilst the heist was going on until Spidey points this out to him, and when asked for suggestions on who might have wanted the stolen technology, he suggests [[SubMariner Namor]], [[TheMightyThor Thor]], and {{Galactus}}, in an attempt to piss off Spidey. Oh, and after the Daily Bugle, Venom is entirely concerned with surfing the web rather than doing anything useful. After you defeat him in the sewers, he almost immediately becomes comedic relief for most of the rest of the game - and even then, the chase scene is one giant screwball sequence.
* CompositeCharacter: Venom is an (at first) villainous character bent on revenge on Spider-Man, but borrows much of the humor from the "lethal protector" era of the character even before teaming up with Spider-Man.
* ContinuityNod: All over the place:
** You can get to the [[Franchise/FantasticFour Baxter Building]] in the first level.
** In the Venom chase scene level, you bypass the [[IronMan Stark Enterprises]] building.
** There is a billboard advertising a CaptainAmerica interview in the police chase level.
** [[spoiler: [[BigDamnHeroes And then he saves you using The Avengers' Quinjet]] at the end]].
* CurbStompBattle: Stopping to fight Monster Ock will result in him beating Spider-Man's face in.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler:In the boss fight with Carnage, Peter posits that Doctor Octopus created the sonic machine so that Carnage would have a harder time betraying him.]]
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Venom wants to kill Spider-Man for roughly half the game. Once you beat him, however, he joins you in your mission and even [[spoiler:helps you escape the exploding lab and into the Quinjet.]]
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If you actually manage to get out of Venom's line of sight in your first fight with him (usually via exploiting a glitch that puts you ''under'' the arena), he starts yelling, wondering where you are.
** If you fall in the paper machine in the Daily Bugle, [[NonStandardGameOver you actually die]].
* EasyModeMockery: The difficulty level, Kid Mode changes the game so it's EasierThanEasy mode, some areas are now automatically completed for the player. A good example is in the one of the sewer levels. The player normally has a path of pipes to navigate, but in Kid Mode, a cutscene is shown where Spider-Man swings towards the pipes, then the camera shows him arriving at the end of the path. Also, instead of X then R2 to swing, the player now has to press X twice.
* EnemyChatter: At the Race to the Bugle level, you can hear some mooks chatting if you go to the right building. Scorpion won't stop walking though.
* EverythingIsSmashableArea: When you fight the Scorpion, you can destroy absolutely everything in Jameson's office. As a matter of fact, destroying everything on the first room is a requirement to get a comic book, and throwing destructible things at the Scorpion is how you're supposed to defeat him.
* EvilIsHammy: Carnage.
* GuideDangIt: A number of the collectible comic books, which require backtracking or entering specific areas after activating a trigger. One especially prominent example is the comic at the beginning of the sewer levels: Spider-Man needs to fight the first two lizard mutants, walk far enough down the cavern to say that they must be some of The Lizard's experiments, and then run all the way back down the cavern to collect it.
* HeKnowsAboutTimedHits: Black Cat.
* HeroesGoneFishing: We get to see CaptainAmerica, [[SpiderMan Spidey]], DareDevil and ThePunisher chilling out playing cards at the end, while Black Cat and the Human Torch dance.
-->'''The Human Torch''': Look at me!!! [[IncrediblyLamePun I'm on fire!!!]]
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Spider-Man, due to being framed by Mysterio for theft and kidnapping. The cops even send attack helicopters armed with machine guns and rockets to bring him in.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Of course, true believers!!! StanLee narrating here!!! Excelsior!!!
** Also, the first game featured Rino Romano, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., and Jennifer Hale reprising their roles from ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''Spider-Man Unlimited''.
** The posh, evil-genius voice that Daran Norris utilizes for his role as Mysterio, sounds identical to that of the voice he uses with his later role in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' as Anti-Cosmo
* IFoughtTheLawAndTheLawWon: During the Police chase, the helicopter is invulnerable and the cops will keep respawning when defeated, so your only option is run.
* ImpactSilhouette‎: When Venom leaps through a billboard at the end of his race with Spider-Man, even his tongue leaves a silhouette-shaped hole in it.
* ImprovisedWeapon: You can hurl barrels, print copiers, vases, and fellow thugs at enemies.
* IronicEcho: [[spoiler:Spider-Man tells Mysterio that [[YouFool it's impossible to control the symbiotes]]. When in prison, Mysterio tells everyone how stupid Doctor Octopus's plan is as "no one can control the symbiotes".]]
* LaughingMad: Carnage. A lot.
* LevelInBossClothing: The attack helicopter and [[spoiler: Monster Ock]] are too powerful for Spider-Man to take on, so he spends their respective fights running away.
* MookMaker: The symbiote generators.
* OminousFog: Much like ''VideoGame/SilentHill'' before it, this was implemented due to graphical limitations, and likewise [[JustifiedTrope justified]], though in a different way: [[spoiler: The fog is being pumped into the city to make the New York citizens less resistant to symbiotes]].
* OneManArmy: In the second level, Spider-Man takes out a couple dozen Jane Syndicate bank robbers with assault rifles. In the final level, he also infiltrates [[spoiler: Doc Ock's]] secret underwater base, plowing his way through symbiotes and the automated defenses (laser turrets and electrified floors) in the process.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: After defeating Carnage, the symbiote uses Doctor Octopus as its host, resulting in a creature able to tear through solid steel and support structures with ease, snarling and grunting at Spidey inhumanly as it chases him. Thankfully, the symbiote still retains its [[KillItWithFire traditional weakness]], so the exploding base ends up ripping the symbiote off Octavius.]]
* PoliceAreUseless: Or, at least, they're against Spider-Man for the entirety of the story due to him being framed for stealing a reformed Octavius's device. Weirdly, they deploy heavily armed SWAT teams and attack helicopters to apprehend Spider-Man for theft, but just kind of ignore other things, like a couple dozen assault rifle wielding robbers storming a bank and taking the staff hostage, or Rhino running around wrecking things, or the Scorpion.
* [[ShamelessSelfPromoter Shameless Self Promotion]]: ''Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2'' is ''everywhere''.
--> '''Spider-Man''': [[TheCameo "Tony Hawk? Hey, I skated with that guy!"]]
* ShoutOut: Several, to both other games and various pop culture references.
--> '''Venom''': [[GroundhogDay "Watch that last step, Parker. It's a doozy."]]
* StoryDrivenInvulnerability: When you race against Venom, you can't damage him at all.
** Nor, when fleeing from [[spoiler: Monster Ock]], can you actually try to fight him off.
* SupermanStaysOutOfGotham: Spidey runs into several other NYC-based heroes in both games, but none manage to do anything significant to help him [[spoiler: though CaptainAmerica does a JustInTime rescue at the end of the first game.]]
* TalkingToHimself: Most of the villains and supporting characters in the first game are voiced by DaranNorris and DeeBradleyBaker.
* TurnsRed: [[spoiler:Mysterio does it twice. First, he adds floors that occasionally spark to the stage after you take out the six initial conduits. After you take out two more conduits, his globe will glow, and there will be electric floors moving around.]]
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Beating up thugs? Funny enough. Beating up thugs while invisible to the naked eye? ''Oh, yeah''. And if you have unlimited webbing, you can play with them even more. It's really fun doing this to them.
** On some rooftops, you can web throw thugs off the building. If you punch/kick them off, they'll stop in mid-air, stand up, look down, and then fall screaming to their deaths ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' style.
* VillainsOutShopping: In the ending, the bad guys all play cards in jail.
-->'''[[TheDitz Rhino]]:''' ''Hey'', I got a Bingo! Ha ha! ....Wait, I made a mistake...
* VillainTeamUp: [[spoiler: Carnage, Doctor Octopus, Mysterio, and Rhino team up to take over New York.]] Scorpion has this to say about it after they all get thrown in jail:
-->'''Scorpion''': You mean to tell me that all of you were working together, and you ''still'' couldn't stop Spider-Man?
-->'''Mysterio''': It's not ''my'' [[NeverMyFault fault]]. [[spoiler: Doc Ock]]'s plan was horrible!
** It also annoys Spider-Man.
-->'''Spider-Man''': What is this, the Bad Guy Olympics!?
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: So, did Spider-Man and Venom just decide to leave the Lizard locked-up in the sewers?
* WhatIf: PlayedForLaughs. A code allows you to change the game to What If mode, showing a lot comedic changes, such as crashing through a skyscraper including a more sequential sequence of gags, [[spoiler:the captured Black Cat ''dancing'' when she's captured and Carnage sounding like a baby]], as well as The Lizard refusing to tell you where to go if you come back to him three times. You also get a few more cameos, such as ComicBook/GhostRider tearing down a nearby skyscraper.
* WolverinePublicity: Many of Marvel's major heroes (Human Torch, Captain America, Daredevil, and a few others) appear here. Wolverine also gets a cameo appearance on a billboard that states they're going to interview him.

He doesn't realise that it ''can't'' have been the real Spider-Man who raided the expo since he bumped into Peter whilst the heist was going on until Spidey points this out to him, and when asked for suggestions on who might have wanted the stolen technology, he suggests [[SubMariner Namor]], [[TheMightyThor Thor]], and {{Galactus}}, in an attempt to piss off Spidey. Oh, and after the Daily Bugle, Venom is entirely concerned with surfing the web rather than doing anything useful. After you defeat him in the sewers, he almost immediately becomes comedic relief for most of the rest of the game - and even then, the chase scene is one giant screwball sequence.

* OminousFog: Much like SilentHill before it, this was implemented due to graphical limitations, and likewise [[JustifiedTrope justified]], though in a different way: [[spoiler: The fog is being pumped into the city to make the New York citizens less resistant to symbiotes]].

** On some rooftops, you can web throw thugs off the building. If you punch/kick them off, they'll stop in mid-air, stand up, look down, and then fall screaming to their deaths WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes style.

* WhatIf: PlayedForLaughs, a code allows you to change the game to WhatIf mode, showing a lot comedic changes, such as crashing through a skyscraper including a more sequential sequence of gags, [[spoiler:the captured Black Cat ''dancing'' when she's captured and Carnage sounding like a baby]], as well as The Lizard refusing to tell you where to go if you come back to him three times. You also get a few more cameos, such as Comicbook/GhostRider tearing down a nearby skyscraper.
* WolverinePublicity: Many of Marvel's major heroes (Human Torch, Captain America, Daredevil, and a few others) appear here. Wolverine also gets a Cameo appearance on a billboard that states they're going to interview him.

Added DiffLines:

* CompositeCharacter: Venom is an (at first) villainous character bent on revenge on Spider-Man, but borrows much of the humor from the "lethal protector" era of the character even before teaming up with Spider-Man.
