|One of a series of games based on the wall-crawling superhero created
by Stan Marvel for Marvel Comics. You would think that with all the different
programming houses involved, at least one of these games would do justice
to the franchise. They don't. The best of the series is only mediocre, and
some are downright obnoxious. Spiderman fans will probably have a field day,
but the rest of us will get bored fast.
In Spiderman and the X-Men - Arcade's Revenge by Software Creations, marketed by Acclaim under their Flying Edge product line, Spidey gets the unenviable task of saving his fellow superheroes the X-Men from an unknown enemy - the silliest story of the lot, and frustrating in places. This looks, and plays, almost identical to the Game Gear port.
