Spider Man Shattered Impressions

Last night I posted two tweets after playing the new Beenox developed Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions.  They weren't exactly positive comments about the game.  I don't regret tweeting them but I got a polite DM today asking to clarify my comments.  Since it has been a long time since I've actually posted anything worthwhile here I figure I would expand on my experience with the game.

I haven't played any past solo Spider-Man games, but I have played X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse, Marvel Ultimate Alliance and MUA 2 as well as forming my early years nose buried in too many Marvel comics to list.  I try to avoid reading too much about a game I want to play for fear of it skewing my feelings before getting to actually play, but I have skimmed one or two reviews to get the sense that SMSD has a lot of good but a few points that keep the game from being a game of year contender.
