I heard that the whole "invasion" thing doesn't really happen until about the end of the game. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't it have been more liked Venom to either drag out a gradual invasion starting from the sewers, or to attempt to do it all at once and lose ground due to not having thought any of it throigh

The invasion gets into full swing about halfway through the game, but the game begins with one of those "this is the present, and here's how we got to this point" sort of openings.

As for Venom, it really isn't a well-written story. Everything just sort of happens, and while the characters briefly wonder why, they quickly move onto thinking of how to deal with the situation.

Play the DS version as well...it's pretty much "Spider-Man in a post Symphony of the Night Castlevania" game. Combat is still fun and he controls well...plus, it might add to the story a bit (although, I don't know FOR SURE, as I haven't played the proper console version...)

I wonder if there will ever be a videogame featuring Venom exclusively, he kicks ass harder than Spidey in my humble opinion.

Normally I'd agree, but in this game, black suit Spider-Man kicks the shit out of Venom. Really makes him look like a slow, lumbering nitwit by comparison.

What I want, more than anything, is a Deadpool game.

Ever read the last issue of Cable & Deadpool? New York is invaded by Symbiote Infected Dinosaurs from the Savage Land.

Symbiote + T-Rex + Deadpool = more awesome than any game can handle.

I used to love Spider-Man games, but it just doesn't seem like they do anything new anymore.

Deadpool is too awesome for his own videogame.

I think the best moment this game had was a symbiote-infected Wolverine boss battle. He eventually purges the symbiote from his body. Manually. With his claws.

That's what I thought until I saw the evil choice from that battle.

Spoilers!

There actually WAS a moment in actual 616 continuity where Wolverine actually wore the Venom Symbiote. It lasted for a couple panels, and he purged it by getting hit with a Missle.
