Spider-Man 3 is an action game loosely based on the Spider-Man 3 film and released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Wii, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, Microsoft Windows and Game Boy Advance. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions were developed by Treyarch, the PC version by Beenox while the other versions were developed by Vicarious Visions.
It was released May 4, 2007. It was the last game officially released for the Game Boy Advance in Europe.
The game retains many of the gameplay elements from the previous game. Among the holdovers from the previous game is the freely explorable Manhattan map, which is larger in area than the one in Spider-Man 2.
There have been various changes to the movement and combat system, including the usage of motion sensitive controls on the Wii version. The Nintendo DS version's combat system is entirely operated using the DS's touch screen - the d-pad is only used for moving Spider-Man. Players are also now able to interact at certain points during some cutscenes.
Another prominent feature is the ability to play as the black-suited Spider-Man from the film, which allows access to new attacks and special "Rage" moves.
Levels 1, 2 and 3 begin with Spider-Man chasing the New Goblin around the city. The New Goblin throws bombs at Spider-Man and he has to shoot them with webs to make the bombs blow up. The glider can blow up if Spider-Man shoots webbing at it. Spidey wakes up with a black suit and fights the Sandman and his thugs. Spidey has to retrieve all the diamonds that Sandman stole and save people who are getting their backpacks stole. (Levels 4-9). In Levels 10-12 Eddie Brock becomes Venom and teams up with the Sandman. They find a construction site and fight Spider-Man there. They kidnap Mary Jane and Spidey has to save her.
