Spidey Noir

Spider Man: Shattered Dimensions (Noir)
The upcoming Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions promises four different Dimensions (distinctive game modes). I love the above screenshot from the Noir mode!

… The second dimension takes place in Marvel’s “Noir” universe, and is a slightly darker (both figuratively and literally) take on Spider-Man, using a style commonly found in pulp crime novels. The gameplay falls in line with this darker approach as there’s an emphasis on stealth, with slower and more methodical gameplay elements incorporated to encourage you to stay in the shadows as often as possible. You’ll still have access to the core Spider-Man abilities, so he’ll still be able to handle himself in a fight, but the developers tell us that sometimes it pays to remain unseen.

    Seems like a good thing to incorporate. I played the game that was released after the first Sam Raimi movie and being stealthy sure helped to keep Your Friendly Neighborhood Wall-Crawler alive, but it wasn’t exactly the point of the game.

    I just hope that they don’t try to make it a gritty, “Dark Knight” kind of feel. That may have worked for Batman, but it ain’t Spidey.
