Another Reviewsical! This time for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 game, based on the recent film of the same name.
I play them so you don't have to.
It's The Amazing Spider-Man (Two!)
It's the game of the movie
Swing on webs 'round the city
Look out, for 'Mazing Spider-man (Two)
Is it good? Well, let's see
It's better than Spider-man 3
Fight Electro? Yeah you bet.
Plus some guys not introduced yet
Here there, Amazing Spider-man (Two!)
As you swing thru the the streets, you build rep fighting crime
But these blasted daring feats seem to take up all your time!
Fighting crime as Spider-Man
Car chases, fire's hot
Just let me advance the plot
C'mon, Amazing Spider-Man (TWO!)
Spoken: There's so much petty crime on the streets, it's hard to get to the story missions. If you miss one, your rep goes down. It drops too far and they send a task force after you. So you HAVE to build it up before advancing the story. If the movie did this, we'd wouldn't have seen Green Goblin until Amazing Spider-Man 3.
However, the web-swinging is the best. Amazing Spider-Man 2's web-swinging makes Spider-Man 2 look like Amazing Spider-Man 2
Wait, what does that mean?
Uh...the new game, makes the best Spider-man game, look like the old Gameboy game.
But Spider-man 2 is still the best overall Spidey game ever
The missions are complex, like using your camera to zoom
There's Spider-Sense effects, and trying on costumes in your room
The game of Amazing Spider-Man (Two!)
Swing 'round virtual New York
As a badly animated dork
If you want to rescue the city
From villains that's a pity
You're more like Spider-Cop

"Twenty Six and a Half: A Tribute to 'Weird Al' Yankovic", features 20 tracks from artists such as MC Frontalot, Shael Riley, the great Luke Ski, MC Lars, Marc with a C, Devo Spice and Insane Ian! Insane Ian
Technically my favorite track is "You Don't Know Jack (Plan B)", because it's just a great reimagining (Some Jerk with a Camera is now officially a reimagineer).
But a lot of the album is good, and the "Luke Ski Phase 2" stuff is also good, but different. Erick A Cobb
