Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (6 ):

While it's made for mobile devices, The Amazing Spider-Man plays like a console game. And that's a compliment. The game follows not only a solid storyline, it also offers plenty of side missions, letting players live out their Spider-Man fantasies of helping people in need.

While playable on phones, this is a game that shines on the larger screen of the iPad, where the controls are spaced well. (On smaller devices, they can be a bit tight.) There are some graphical glitches -- and the game runs slower on older devices, but at its heart, it's an enjoyable action/adventure game that will keep fans happy.
