Spiderman 2 - The Sinister 6 (GBC)

The Gameboy Color must be the most overlooked Nintendo handheld ever made. There are actually good GBC exclusive games like Dragon Warrior 3, Metal Gear Solid, and the Zelda Oracle games. As you know, I'm into less known games. I stumbled upon the Spiderman series for the GBC and I surprisingly enjoyed Spiderman 2.

I think that the controls for Spiderman 2 is very responsive. The sprite animation is fluid but does not compromise the speed at which you need to execute moves. The game overall is like an action RPG. You gain skills as you kill bad guys in this game.

The story is pretty much trivial. You are Spiderman, they are the Sinister 6, go get 'em. In this game, you really don't need much of a story to enjoy the experience. The levels are not that great, but the boss fights are at least a bit interesting, though sometimes you need to die a few times to establish the pattern of the bosses. That's fine, it adds a bit to the challenge of the game. And believe me, it needs the challenge since most of it is not that hard to beat.

If you have a GBC or an emulator, I suggest that you give this title a try. It's pretty mediocre but it's loads of fun swinging around New York as Spidey.
