The dreadful event, however, marked the establishment of peace within the city of New York, with Spider Man being there to combat every threat.
Things take a toll when 4 newly formed groups, namely the Apocalypse, the Dragon Tail, the H-Bombers, and the Arsenic Candies attempt to fragment the city amongst them, thus inviting an outrageous war between the neighbors. Elsewhere, Peter Parker, amid the mayhem in his life, gets a ray of hope when Mary Jane Watson, the latter’s childhood crush agrees to date him after coming to know about his dual life.
Trouble begins when Harry Osborn, Peter’s best comrade in the past, comes to know about the latter’s secret and starts to hate him on the false pretext of Spider Man having killed his father. In the meantime, Eddie Brock, Harry’s new enemy tends to threaten the latter’s work at the Daily Bugle.
Gameplay of Spider Man 3 for PSP
Diving into the gameplay, you will find most of the storyline to be retained from the film, Ultimate Spider Man, exclusive of a few mission alterations, with the side storylines focusing on the removal and replacement of unfeatured film characters with novel entries. The landscape mapping has been done in accordance with the limitations of the PSP platform, along with the inclusion and retainment of new and recycled CGI cutscenes from previous editions.
The most striking gameplay modification is the liberty to change the conventional red-blue attire and his black suit whenever you like, by unlocking a small, quick-time event. You are, however required to remove the black suit at regular intervals, lest Spider Man gets corrupted by the symbiote and you will lose your game.
Once you remove the suit, wait for the cooldown period to finish before it’s worn again. The suit has a rage meter which comes to zero percent on reaching the limit when the main story gets completed. Relax, Spider Man will remain alive.
The PSP version bears an exact similarity with the PlayStation 2, except for the exclusive feature of Conquest Mode, which requires you to travel across the city and finish as many tasks as you can of item delivery, protection of civilians, and battle tours within a specified time to earn the maximum hero points. Your most recent score gets displayed at the end of the time limit, and you can replay the mission any time to improve your score.
