Web of Talent Joins Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

July 26, 2010Written by Thomas Williams

Up until last year when Batman: Arkham Asylum surprised that gaming world with its awesomeness, comic book licensed games, for the most part, flat out sucked. Don’t believe me? Go and play either Iron Man 1 or 2, then come back and tell me what you think. Arkham Asylum is one of the few games that got it right. Developers Beenox and Publisher Activision look to continue this trend this Fall with Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions on the PS3. Featuring four different Spider-Man realities, fans of the ole’ web-slinger will be able to fulfill their Spider-fantasies until the year 2099 rolls around (Yep! Spider-Man 2099 is in it!!). Activision announced the voice talent for the game and fans of the past animated shows will be most pleased and just wait until you who the narrator is! One hint: EXCELSIOR!!

I’ll go ahead and get the biggest surprise out of the way: Stan ‘Hey, I created almost all of the best characters at Marvel’ Lee will be narrating the games storyline! How sweet is that!?! Then, Mr. Doogie Howser himself, Neil Patrick Harris, will lead the way voicing ‘616’ Amazing Spider-Man, Josh Keaton will be Ultimate Spider-Man, Christopher Daniel Barnes will be Noir Spidey, and Dan Gilvezan will play Spider-Man 2099.

The best part? Everyone of the actors voicing Spider-man did so during one of the several Spider-Man shows over the years. Will this please fans of the those series? Yes! Will it improve the overall quality of the title? That remains to be seen.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions swings into stores this September 7th. Will all of our Spidey fans here at PlayStation LifeStyle be giving this game a chance or are you going to leave poor Spidey hanging?
