Him the man, him the man, him the Spider-Man.Spider-Man is one of numerous video games to feature the eponymous Marvel Comics 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 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, for the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 and ported to the Dreamcast and PC. For the game that was released as a tie-in to the Sam Raimi film, go to Spider-Man Trilogy.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 Enter Electro, was released soon after, by Vicarious Visions.
