Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is a video game title encompassing three versions: a full-3D action game for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360 ; a 2.5D sidescrolling beat em up action game for the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2 (called Amazing Allies Edition), and a 2.5D side-scrolling brawler/platformer for the Nintendo DS.
Spider-Man searches for Mary Jane Watson while the city of New York is infested with symbiotes. He finds her with Luke Cage but then sees a mysterious figure and is attacked. During a flashback to four days earlier, Spider-Man retells his account of how his latest encounter with Venom ended with a piece of the symbiote binding to himself. After the fight with Venom, an injured Mary Jane is sent to a hospital and Spidey meets Luke Cage during a gang war. Cage explains the Rolling Sevens and Park Avenue gangs are at war, and that their task is to bring the two to a truce. After pursuing the two gang leaders across the city, Spider-Man manages to get them to agree to a peaceful meeting in a park in Harlem. Outside the rendezvous point, Spider-Man discovers high-tech assassins on top of the nearby buildings. If the player chooses the Red Path, the two form a friendly truce. If the player chooses the Black Path, the gangs will remain at war. Nonetheless, after defeating the assassins, he traces the assassins back to the Kingpin.
Spider-Man heads to Kingpin’s lair, but finds Black Cat leaving and gives chase. The two fight briefly, but in the end, Black Cat reveals she is working against Kingpin and still has strong feelings for him. Depending on the player’s choice, Spider-Man can either reject her advances or return her feelings and spend the night with her. Spider-Man joins forces with Moon Knight in order to stop the Kingpin’s illegal activities, battling several of his men, including the Vulture; Vulture had been mass-producing Goblin gliders for Kingpin’s goons to use. Eventually, Spider-Man confronts a number of Kingpin’s henchman on the roof of the Daily Bugle; all are surprised by the sudden appearance of civilians that attack them with their hands and teeth. A news helicopter records Spider-Man throwing civilians off of the building, and the police believe him to be a murderer. Unknown to them, the civilians have been infected with symbiotes.
