Spider Man: Friend or Foe doesn't really have a plot; you have to fight familiar Spider-Man who are being controlled by someone. However, you spend most of your time fighting. Although fighting is a main theme in the game, it's not really that violent. Characters do get punched, kicked, etc, but they don't get hurt too bad and there's no blood. It's an okay game. Once you finish everything, there's not much to do but replay the levels. If the game had more of a plot, it might be more interesting. Parents might not like the fact that the game's main theme is fighting. But if you're OK with it, then this game is fine for them.
