It wouldn't be a big, splashy, blockbuster film release without the obligatory game tie-in, would it? Spider-Man 3 is no exception. The good news is that where movie licenses generally have a reputation for lazy development, games based on the Spider-man films have a reputation for quality and good, wholesome fun.

While Activision's promising fun this time around, we can't promise that it'll necessarily be wholesome. Spider-Man 3 marks the appearance of the black costume. If you don't speak nerd, the black costume is a symbiotic life form that enhances Spidey's speed, strength and agility. The bad news is that it has some rather nasty effects on his personality, making him frankly a bit of a dick.

Don't worry though. The unveiling of Spidey's dark side doesn't mean you'll be playing through hours of him fighting his inner demons and emotional turmoil, oh no. As well as the film's villains, the Sandman, the Hobgoblin and Venom, you'll take on Spidey classics such as The Scorpion, The Lizard, The Kingpin, Kraven the Hunter and more.

The DS features a crucial difference to other version of the game. You can probably guess where we're going with this: it's the touchscreen! Players can use the stylus to control Spidey's actions and get more accuracy with their webshooters than ever.
