  SPIDERMAN: SHATTERED DIMENSIONS XBOX 360 PREVIEW  
  In Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions, Activision introduces our web-slinging superhero to a new stage of disposition - one that involves a mystical artifact called the Tablet of Order and Chaos. On the outside, the tablet looks like any other ordinary relic but upon closer inspection, its purpose is to keep reality in balance. As luck would have it, the tablet has been broken into four pieces; it happened during a robbery, in which Spiderman was pursuing the perpetrator. Obviously, this is a "time-sensitive" issue and the breakage of the tablet is creating raptures in the very fabric of our universe. Each of the four fragments contains a spell and it supercharges the power of the person who owns one of these. Spiderman needs to collect these fragments immediately! However, this is not going to be an easy job as every single one of the fragments have fallen into the wrong hands. Shattered Dimensions mainly translates to four scattered pieces of the tablet opening four overlapping alternate universes. Spiderman could not harvest all the pieces alone. Fortunately, he has three other "heroic personas" of himself in their respective universe to assist in bringing reality back to normal. Basically, what you have is four very disparate versions of Spiderman in this game.

You'll find that each version has a unique touch in design and personality. One of the characters you'll be using is the Spiderman Noir, which offers a stark contrast to the Amazing Spiderman we have come to know. The gameplay, on the other hand, looks to be solid, utilizing same mechanics in previous games and includes new techniques that are specific to the Spiderman you selected. The combat style looks to remain very acrobatic and flashy, with a mix of stealth and camera shifting a la Punch-Out. In the animation department, the action looks equally impressive with nice special effects to executing moves such as quick takedowns and bullet-dodging artistry. The graphics can be described the same way - sharp with tons of enhancements that look like right out of a modern comic panel. The game makes smart use of outlines and lightings technology as you'll notice when Spiderman moves in and out of shade. Overall, Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions makes an excellent first impression. We had thought Spiderman couldn't get more interesting but who knew we would get four Spiderman in one disc, each in their distinct universe? Needless to say, the game is on the right path to deliver the kind of close-quarter style of combat that we come to expect for the franchise. Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions is expected to arrive on September 7, 2010.
