YMMV: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Miguel O'Hara is more fond of quipping and jokes than his comic counterpart.
    • Madame Web grants Miguel a power he doesn't normally have; Spider Sense. She must have given him another of the basic Spider-man powers; Quirky sense of humor! And thus, the day was saved, thanks to; Fridge Brilliance!
  • Anticlimax Boss: It's absurdly easy to button mash Electro to death in the DS version without him so much as lifting a finger.
  • Crazy Awesome: Deadpool.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Hammerhead's Stage, Deadpool's Stage, and Hobgoblin's Stage to name a few.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Serena Patel aka Doc Ock 2099 seems to be very popular.
  • Genius Bonus: "I believe it was Goethe who said: 'He who jealously guards his fears, secretly yearns to bring them about'... Either him, or Irving Forbush."
  • Goddamned Bats: The exploding kamikaze critters in Doc Ock's stage.
    • The green Electro-creatures are also annoying.
  • Good Bad Bugs: The Wii version allows you, in the Noir Stages, to rescue a hostage fairly quickly in the Goblin segment by simply walking through the right bars (also meaning you don't need to open the cage in the first place.). A similar glitch is also in the first level, and requires some timing to pull of, which allows you to get in the hallway Hammerhead and his henchmen are: Get spotted, and then use a web-strike, and you'll be in the same hallway, though they'll have disappeared. Doing so, however, means that you will be unable to progress in the level and have to restart.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Marvel had previously claimed that a crossover between the mainstream and Ultimate books would mean they had officially run out of ideas. This has mainstream, Ultimate, 2099, and Noir!
      • Even more hilarious, as of late 2012, Mainstream and Ultimate Marvel books did cross-over, featuring both Spider-Mennote , to boot! Oh Marvel, you so crazy. Oh, Crap. That means they're out of ideas. But then, "Iron Patriot" kinda make that obvious.
      • On a similar note, the same crossover reveals that Ultimate Mysterio was actually just a robotic avatar used by his mainstream counterpart, who had been travelling between the two universes.
      • And as if that wasn't enough, the current big Marvel event for the Ultimate universe involves mainstream Galactus threatening to destroy the Ultimate Universe after being teleported there.
    • Not to mention the announcement of Spider Verse, which is this concept taken Up to Eleven.
    • One of the commercials in the Pain Factor level is a Blaxploitation themed advert for Stephen Strange, Jr, the Ultimate Dr. Strange. Becomes a Reverse Funny Aneurysm with the line "He's cheated death itself," given that by the time the game was released, Strange Jr. was dead.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Scorpion 2099.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Ultimate Deadpool has MUCH more in common with his mainstream-counterpart than he does usually.
  • Stop Helping Me!: There is no way to turn off Madame Web's hints. Reaches insane levels during the Sandman boss-fight where she'll continuously tell you to find something in the debris and to use water-barrels, often in rapid sucession. Over and over.
  • Squick: In Deadpool's own words.
    Deadpool: "And is it true there's a clone of you out there with your brain, but trapped inside a girl's body?"
    Spidey: "Ehhh..."
    Deadpool: "'Cause that's kind of like creepy and by "kind of" I mean insanely! I'd still hit it though."
  • Tainted by the Preview: A few people were annoyed when Ultimate Deadpool was announced to be in the game. This was fixed when they revealed that Ultimate Deadpool's personality was more in line with the mainstream version, earning him some brownie points.
  • That One Boss: Boomerang.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: A pre-order bonus is Cosmic Spider-Man suits for the four different Spidey's, the endgame features Mysterio trying to destroy all four universes... Yet somehow, the Cosmic Spidey costumes weren't worked into the storyline.
