In this installment of Co-Op Classics, we have two brand new retro videos for your entertainment. Tying in to the theater release The Amazing Spider-Man, we looked back through the old catalog for two co-op 90s brawlers. One was an arcade hit: 1991's Spider-Man the Video Game. The other was available on home consoles in 1995: Spider-Man & Venom Separation Anxiety.
The past few years have given us Spider-Man games on an almost annual basis, including the recent Amazing Spider-Man movie tie in and the excellent Shattered Dimensions. Sadly, only one Spidey game in this console generation offered co-op: 2007's mediocre Friend or Foe. If we head back in time even further, we have to travel quite a ways until more co-op webslinging shows up, and one of these games is the topic of today's Co-Op Classics: Spider-Man the Video Game, which hit arcades in 1991.
The fall gaming rush is upon us, that means plenty of good cooperative titles - and plenty of good single player titles! Our first batch of reviews for the Fall 2010 gaming season are here - Mafia 2, Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions, King's Bounty: Crossworld's and more!
Spider-man has had a long and generally successful video game career. Spider-man for the Atari 2600 was an early game based on the web-slinger, and it was quite fun and addicting for the time. A whole slew of Spidey games followed, for a large variety of game systems. The Amiga, PC, NES, Game Gear, Game Boy, Genesis, Super Nintendo, and more all had multiple titles, of varying quality. With the explosion of Spider-man's popularity after the movies, the wise cracking webhead hit the previous generation of consoles, culminating in what in my opinion, is the finest Spider-man game to date, Spider-man 2.
