143w ago - Content Producer Barry Keating has shared some hands-on feedback on Spiderman Shattered Dimensions for PlayStation 3 today via the PlayStation Blog.
To quote: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is shaping up to be pretty slick Spider-Man adventure, not just because it's a wholly original game ripped from the pages of the Marvel comic, but because you get to play as four (count 'em!) alternate Spider-Men.
The finest example of a Spider-Man game to date - for me anyway - has been Spider-Man 2 The Game on PlayStation 2. It brilliantly fused the open world ideas behind Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto series with Marvel's comic book crown jewel: Spider-Man. Developer Beenox looks set to match that spectacular combination on a whole new level with Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

They are: Amazing Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2099 and Spider-Man Noir with each one housing its own unique attribute.

Marvel heroes and villains will pop up in the adventure, and gamers will have the ability to change sides as they see fit.
Activision is keeping its lips sealed about what Spider-Man is up against in the new game but we know it's a threat to the entire world and that it can do some real damage to New York. From the one screenshot and teaser trailer, it looks like Spidey's up against a number of villains who can redecorate buildings and create giant oozing black tendrils.
