The code-name for this project ("Stanley") was "cracked" early in the development cycle (Stan Lee, get it?) it was still a pleasant surprise to learn that this Playstation title -- recently released for the PC as well -- is coming to the Mac OS. The original developers of Spider Man were the same team that did Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, and as with that console-to-PC port the graphics and effects were greatly enhanced during the porting process so you can expect a game up to current Mac and PC visual standards. Here's an excerpt from the preview:

With all of the Spiderman paraphernalia and many different series merchandised over the years, it's probably fair to characterize the Spiderman license as a wee bit tired. After the comic originally brought its young creator Stan Lee --and largely Marvel Comics itself-- to fame in the 1960s, there have been many variants of the strip in both comic books and newspapers. TV has milked Spidey as well, with a series appearing at least once per decade (including a very popular cartoon version in the mid-Nineties). A large number of platform and fighting titles based on Spiderman have appeared in arcades and still do on many consoles. And with a corresponding movie coming out this spring, you might be tempted to write this off as just another license; that would be a mistake.
Read the rest of this in-depth preview for more details on this title, plus the requisite gallery of screen shots. This title is under development by Westlake Interactive, and is slated for an ambitious release date of November this year -- published by Aspyr Media, of course.
