Spider-Man returns to Wii in four different guises and four distinct Marvel eras with Shattered Dimensions. Unlike previous Spider-Man games, Shattered Dimensions features linear, level-based progression instead of a free-roaming, open world. You'll swing across city, jungle, and other outdoor environments as the Amazing Spider-Man, slink through the shadows as Spider-Man Noir, and battle futuristic enemies as Spider-Man 2099. Defeating enemies in each time period earns you spider essence that can be used to purchase alternate costumes, new moves, and other bonuses.
The legendary Tablet of Order and Chaos has been shattered, causing a rift in time, so it's up to Spider-Man to retrieve the fragments as he progresses through his respective era. Adhering to the look of the comic books, each universe has its own art direction and visual style. Spider-Man Noir, for instance, adopts an atmospheric, black-and-white style, while the Amazing Spider-Man features vibrant colors and a cel-shaded appearance. Each Spider-Man can utilize character-specific moves as he subdues an assortment of villains and boss characters in creative ways.
