We've heard the claim before: "combat redefined." It's mostly just used as an attention-grabber for the media, but in this particular case, we think Shaba and Activision might be telling the truth. By this gameplay video, it appears we can do more than ever before in any Spider-Man game, as the diverse and hectic combat is quite impressive. You have to realize that more characters will be involved in Web of Shadows, which means more superpowers and more fighting styles need to be captured by the developers. And this latest preview shows they're doing just that; all that remains is to solidify an accessible and effective control mechanic. If they can do that, there's nothing stopping us from having some major Spidey fun this fall!
