    spiderman Spider-Man: Web of Fire

    Sega made good use of its Spider-Man license. With releases for every console of the era, the company fired off one last salvo of web fluid with 1996's Web of Fire for the 32X. Despite the new hardware, ol' web head's last hurrah was more of a whimper than a bang. The problem with it is that it doesn't set off your spider sense for mediocrity until after you've blown $150 for it on eBay. read our full review and stick with Spider-Man vs. the Kingpin for all your wall crawling needs.

    Finally, someone got this game out with a review.

    Ken could you actually list the game as Amazing Spider-Man: Web of Fire like it's listed on the box? I like it better that way and notice most sites don't list it that way.

    I was thinking about that, but the title screen doesn't have it.

    I'd say this is a very fair review for this game, it was definitely inferior to the Genesis/Sega CD versions, and you did take note of that rather suspect hit detection. I also agree the first level was the best one, though I also enjoyed the bridge for some reason too.

    It wasn't terrible, and for a 32X game it especially wasn't too bad out of virtue that there wasn't many games on the add-on. But overall, very disappointing, that's for sure. Not worth $100, but again, I didn't mind spending $35 on it.

    Supposedly 1500, but the game pops up far too often for the number to seem true.

    Yeah, these graphics don't look like an earlier Genesis game. Albeit they're not as good as Knuckles Chaotix 2D graphics, but they aren't too bad.

    Maybe it looks better in action, but the screenshots look kinda crappy. Spider-Man's sprite just looks... I dunno, weird. Kinda play-doh-y, if you will.

    That green car in one of the pics looks really grainy, too.

    If there's one thing I do have a hard time praising with this game, it's definitely the visuals. Given how the Sega CD Spider Man game was, the visuals in Web of Fire were quite crappy in comparison (though there's some level of rendering with Spider Man himself at least).

    This game looks like a Genesis game ported to the 32x with minimum details added, like the Unreleased 32x Version of Pinocchio.

    Finally got around to playing this (via Mega SD, I've not sold a kidney to buy a copy). It plays like it's unfinished, the graphics are barely above 16-bit level, the music is definitely crappy American gems sounding guff. Not completely awful but initial impressions is that 5/10 is about right.

    Got a few more levels in and the gameplay just gets jankier, the way the game just snaps back to the start of the level when you die is odd as well.
    As the review alludes to Spider-Man sometimes sticks when you don't want him to - like a furnace or electric generator.
    It has been an horrid experience so far and feels like an unfinished proto or a Taiwanese bootleg.
