Spider-Man: Edge Of Time



Spider-Man: Edge of Time is a 2011 video game based on the superhero Spider-Man, developed by Beenox and released for the Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. The game was directed by Gerard Lehiany and Ramiro Belanger. The story, written by Peter David, Ramiro Belanger, and Gérard Lehiany, revolves around both Peter Parker, the original Spider-Man, and Miguel O'Hara, Spider-Man 2099, as they combat a new threat across space and time and attempt to save both of their realities, while also trying to prevent Parker's death from coming to fruition. The game is a sequel to 2010's Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, although Spider-Man Noir and Ultimate Spider-Man are not featured, only mentioned.




Spider-Man: Edge of Time



Spider-Man: Edge of Time is a linear third-person action-adventure video game where the player assumes the two versions of Spider-Man, spanning across the traditional Marvel Comics universe and the futuristic 2099 universe; the game automatically switches between the two Spider-Men. Gameplay is similar to that of its predecessor Shattered Dimensions: players can web swing, web zip, crawl walls, and use the 'spider-sense' to identify enemies or objects of interest. The Spider-Man 2099 free falling sections from Shattered Dimensions also return, as does the upgrade system; XP is earned from completing various challenges with each Spider-Man, and can be used to purchase new fighting moves, increase stats, or unlock alternate costumes. Both Spider-Men have a new exclusive ability: the original Spider-Man (Peter Parker) has a "hyper-sense" mode, allowing him to move quickly, pulverize enemies one at a time or run through elaborate laser defence systems without getting hurt; Spider-Man 2099 (Miguel O'Hara), meanwhile, can create a fake simulation of himself to divert an enemy, to either attack without them noticing or to move to another area unharmed while their attack destroys something in front of him, such as a highly secure lock.[8]


In the year 2099, Miguel O'Hara / Spider-Man 2099 (Christopher Daniel Barnes) investigates Alchemax scientist Walker Sloan (Val Kilmer). While spying on him, the former discovers the latter plans to travel back in time to establish Alchemax years before its original founding, allowing him to rebuild the company in his image and dismantle its corporate rivals before they are even established.


O'Hara fails to stop Sloan from entering his time gateway and is temporarily trapped between dimensions and witnesses visions of his predecessor Peter Parker / Spider-Man (Josh Keaton) being killed by an unknown assailant. Returning to an altered version of 2099, an unaffected O'Hara uses Parker's DNA from Alchemax's archives to establish a mental, chronal link between them across time to warn Parker, now working for Alchemax, of his impending death. However, Parker refuses to heed it and travels to the 66th floor to stop a rampaging Anti-Venom (Steve Blum), forcing O'Hara to head to his own 66th floor.


Along the way, the Spider-Men discover Sloan has built another gateway in Parker's time, which created a "quantum causality field", linking their time periods and causing actions in the past to directly alter the future. Arriving at the 66th floor, Parker finds himself confronted by Anti-Venom, Sloan, and Alchemax's head scientist Dr. Otto Octavius (Dave B. Mitchell). He battles Anti-Venom, who drains his powers to the point of death. Before Anti-Venom can kill him, O'Hara pulls Parker through the gateway and places him in a containment unit to heal while he travels to the past and defeats Anti-Venom, breaking the chips that allowed Sloan to control him. Furious at Sloan for using him, Anti-Venom attacks Sloan and Octavius, inadvertently pushing all three into the gateway; destabilizing it and trapping the Spider-Men in each other's time periods.


While attempting to repair the gateway, the Spider-Men are attacked by inter-dimensional tentacles where O'Hara saves Mary Jane Watson (Laura Vandervoort) from a near-death situation and Parker fights 2099 clones of Black Cat (Katee Sackhoff). Using Alchemax's archives, they succeed, though Parker encounters his future self (Josh Keaton) who used an anti-aging drug to become Alchemax's CEO and wishes to use Sloan's portal for his own ends. Eventually, the Spider-Men are able to return to their original time periods, but a monster resembling Anti-Venom with Octavius' tentacles follows Parker through as the gateway creates a "time storm". Calling it "Atrocity" (Fred Tatasciore), Parker evades the monster while attempting to secure DNA samples from it for O'Hara, who discovers it is a combination of Sloan, Anti-Venom, and Octavius and theorizes that forcing it back into the gateway should disrupt the time storm.


However, the CEO contacts O'Hara to reveal his intent to harness the storm's quantum energy so he can rewrite history in his image. While Parker lures Atrocity back to the gateway and sends it through, O'Hara does the same with the CEO. This collapses the gateway, ending the time storm, and reversing all of Sloan's changes with only the Spider-Men remembering the events.


Spider-Man: Edge of Time received mixed reviews. McKinley Noble of GamePro highly criticized the game pointing out it ultimately doesn't live up to Shattered Dimensions, only giving Edge of Time a "fair" rating of 3 out of 5. Joystiq was more critical, giving the game 2.5/5 and criticizing Beenox's misuse of the Spider-Man character. IGN gave the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions a 4.5 out of 10,[36] but gave the Wii version a 6.0 and the Nintendo 3DS version a 5.5. GameSpot gave the game a 6 out of 10, saying that it "tells an enjoyably absurd time-hopping tale, but stepping into the tights of its two heroes doesn't feel as empowering as it should".[37] Game Informer gave it a 6.5, saying "Edge of Time is a major step back from the formula that worked."[38] Destructoid gave the game a 5 out of 10.[39] GameTrailers gave the game a 5.4 out of 10, praising the story and voice acting, but criticizing the repetition of the gameplay.[40]


We then go a few hours before Chapter 1, In the future, Miguel O'Hara, the Spider-Man from 2099, has discovered that Walker Sloan, whom he admits is a personal rival, has rebuilt the Virtual un-reality lab into a time machine.


Knowing that time travel technology is dangerous, especially in the hands of a greedy psychopath like Sloan, Miguel proceeds to stalk Walker through Alchemax and discovers that he is planning on using the machine to open Alchemax years ahead of schedule and dismantle their rivals before they begin, essentially putting all corporations under his control and a large portion of the earth with them.


Despite Miguel's efforts, Walker succeeds in his plan and jumps into the past. Miguel goes in after him, but finds himself trapped in the vortex, Miguel witnesses Peter being killed by Anti-Venom (although at the time he couldn't make it out) thus changing the past; the Daily Bugle is replaced with the Alchemax corporation and Peter Parker is working directly under Doctor Octavius in the genetics department. As part of Dr. Octavius's genetic trials Peter has already uploaded his DNA into the system.


At the same time in the future everything has changed too: all of New York City has become a part of Alchemax and has visibly changed. Once free of the portal, Miguel desperately tries to escape robotic sentinels and plans to come back later to deal with the chaos created by Walker's plans.


Peter soon discovers that the killer is Anti-Venom who is only able to muster enough will power to warn him to stay away. The Spider-Men soon discover that as a result of the new time portal Sloan is building, anything done in the past has an immediate effect on the future and vice versa (Anti-Venom destroys an elevator and that Elevator ceases to exist in the future) called Quantum Casuality.


Undeterred, Peter makes his way to the 66th floor of Alchemax where both Sloan and Doctor Octapus are building the new time portal to the future and the final showdown between himself and Anti-Venom is supposed to take place.


After Parker heals from his wounds, the Spider-Men determine that while the time portal in the future is fully functional the one in the past has suffered damage. As a result, Miguel can't go back to the future because the Technology to fix the portal doesn't exist yet, Peter has to send the parts back to the past before going back himself. Miguel warns Peter not to let the batteries touch each other or they will explode.


After acquiring all 3 batteries, Peter begins to make his way back to the portal when the batteries touch each other. Miguel tells him sending them through the portal one at a time should cause them to restabalize. On his way back to the time portal with the Quantum batteries needed to fix the portal Peter hears a familiar female voice over the speaker system beginning to taunt him, calling him a "blast from the past".


Miguel guides Peter to the future Archives where he'll hopefully be able to access the needed Data and send it back. While in the Library Peter continues to hear the voice over the speaker system taunt him. Peter finally reaches the archives and in addition to the data for the time machine he also discovers that Mary Jane will be killed the day he left in the Alchemax building, though do to the chaos created by the tentacles and the Quantum causality the cause of death keeps changing.


Now with all the Data they need the two Spider-Men go back to the Time portals to fix the damage and go back to their proper time periods. But then, Peter is ambushed by a clone of Black Cat claiming to be the original. Peter realizes the trap and defeats the clone group. On his way back to the Gateway after dealing with the clones, Peter comes face to face with Alchemax's CEO, whom he realizes is actually his future self, kept alive by a powerful anti-aging drug he developed.


Once back in their proper timelines, a hulking amalgam of Doctor Octavius, Sloan, and Anti-Venom follows Peter to his time. Peter decides to call it "Atrocity". Atrocity follows him through the whole building. Miguel proceeds to make his way to the Para-science research labs in order to find a way to defeat Atrocity. Once in the Para-labs Miguel states that he needs Peter to acquire some DNA samples from Atrocity so that he can figure out a way of defeating it. 041b061a72
