Spider-Man games "suck", says Acti boss

Kotick takes a pop at the most recent ones.

Activision boss Bobby Kotick has said the company's recent Spider-Man games deserved to get low review scores - because they're rubbish.

"Our Spider-Man games have sucked for the last five years," Kotick told US magazine Game Informer (as read by Destructoid). "They are bad games. They were poorly rated because they were bad games."

So what seems to be the problem? "We went away from what is Spider-Man," the bubbly brunette continued. "It's about web-slinging. If you don't do web-slinging, what is the fantasy of Spider-Man?" Getting off with Kirsten Dunst while upside-down, obviously.

Spider-Man games released by Activision in the last five years include Ultimate Spider-Man (6/10), Spider-Man 2 (5/10), Spider-Man: Web of Shadows (5/10) and Spider-Man: Friend or Foe (3/10). Oh dear.
