This game takes place after the events of the movie. So far, it's looking pretty good.
We've got a new trailer for a villain in the movie. Rhino!
Here's some information regarding a new take on him inspired by the movies.
I gotta say, he's looking pretty damn good. The only thing that kind of bugs me with this is the dark and depressing tone they're going for in the movies. A character like Rhino would have been a great villain to insert some comedic value with, but they made him a confused, ferocious, rampaging monster. That's cool and all, but I'm hoping Garfield cracks a few good jokes with him at least.
Also, that IGN link also confirms Morbius is in the game, as a human at least. I'm assuming he gets bonded with bat DNA to get his powers like Lizard is bonded with Lizard DNA and Rhino is bonded with Rhino DNA. If they're going to keep with this theme, we'll probably get a bunch of animal themed villains. That throws in Beetle, Chameleon, Doctor Octopus (doubtful), Man Wolf, Scorpion, Vulture, and Swarm. And with all these animal characters, Kraven cant be far behind.
Another thing I like from that trailer is the fighting mechanics. Those moves looked great! They kind of reminded of Arkham Asylum because of how intertwined you get with the thugs. They did a good job with that. I'm pretty hyped for this game!
Also, I might as well put this trailer up since it pretty much confirms (what I believe to be) Spider SlayersL
