No matter how you feel about the, Toby Maguire, Spider-man movies, you can’t deny that the games were pretty good. This could be because they didn’t follow the movie plot exactly, who knows, but one of the best things about them was the villains that didn’t feature in the movie. Every one of the games had, not only the bad guys from the film, but also extra ones from the comics. Now that the movie franchise is getting rebooted, the games are getting the same treatment and it looks like they are keeping up the tradition of including secondary villains. A new trailer, for the game, hit the web, pun, today and it revealed that the Rhino will be in the game.
Rhino has been described as Spider-man ‘dimmest’ enemy and that’s how he appeared when he was in the game Spider-man 2. However, this time he seems to be a lot tougher and have a bigger role to play and, while he wasn’t exactly holding up his scores on an IQ test, a voiceover in the video, as well as some of the scenes, would suggest that brains don’t matter as he simply uses his animal instinct. The ‘beast’ is in control.
It isn’t only the villains that look tougher in this game; Spider-man is shown kicking some serious behind. Throwing people, grabbing there head between his feet, flipping them, Jackie Chan eat your heart out. There are so many different ways that you can beat up criminal, it looks really great and I’m glad that they kept it open city. I never really doubted that they would. It was such an important part of the previous instalments, though they are not related, it would have been foolish to leave it out when it works so well.
The other Spider-man games featured more than one new villain, so it stands to reason that this one will as well. No word has been announced yet, but if I could pick I’d like to see either Black Cat, because I thought her part in the second Spider-man game was really good, or Morbius, just sort of an old favourite. There’s no guarantee that another extra villain will appear in the game, but it is very plausible.
