Spider-Man Black and Spider-Man- one of the greatest games ever. Excellent shots and classic callouts. Terrific art package and last-ability. This game set the standard.

Fun game with lots to do, finish all modes and then complete battle royale and you have a chance to beat the game in hero mode. Overall a fun pin which in my opinion is the best superhero Pin at the moment.

I realize that this version (playfield wise) is the same as the regular Spiderman, except for the fact that it's chromed, limited to 500, shaker motor, the cabinet art is unique along with the mirrored back glass. Nonetheless, this limited look really makes it standout. The gameplay is great, fast and exciting. Easily the best super hero pin made and one of Steve Ritchie's best.

This is a very flowy and fun game. I really like the artwork on it. Only 500 were made, so they are tough to find.

This is a fun pin worth trying, but it gets buried a little bit by better comic book themed pins in my opinion. Maybe it's the bad taste that Spiderman 3 left in my mouth. There are enough shots to hit and things to accomplish in this game that it would probably be way more fun once I figure them all out, but the question is whether or not I would continue to play it when it's lined up with a bunch of pins that are a bit more enjoyable. That said, it is Spiderman, and Spiderman is one of the coolest superheroes of all time. I almost wish we had a Spiderman pin based off of the 90's cartoon series.

I’ve owned this for a couple months and can testify that it’s awesome. The Venom ramp is one of the most satisfying ramps in pinball and the other villains are all great to bring down. When you have multiball and the Green Goblin/JK Simmons callouts going..that’s about as good as it gets. Great ramps, great code, if you get the color DMD great everything.

This is definitely my S.A.M favourite. Flowy, fast, varied gameplay, funny callouts, very good sound (with the right hardware :-)). If there only would be drop targets at the Green Goblin. :-)

You've won an extra, extra, extra ball.

Mayhem Meets Strategy!
Very fun adrenaline filled game, with a lot of shots.
Game flow is very good. But some shots are tight: when you are on there is great flow, when your ramp shots are off not so much. So the game is a mix between downright crazy, skill shooting (Ramps, Orbits, Doc Oc) , target bashing (Goblin and Sandman targets) and rule based strategy and you adjust depending on how your game is going.
Modes are stackable and can be added during Multiball and the Octo Multiball...this leads to total craziness as the shaker and all various call outs and lights kicking in... one shot can lead to several scores. I think the center post adds to the strategy also, it can hurt you as much as it helps.
Overall the artwork on the Black is fantastic. The DMD animations aren’t that great,but some of them grow on you. Music and call outs are cool, and there seems to be different call outs very often.
Overall very fun and well themed game.

Fun in a dark and evil kind of way, decent layout, gets going pretty fast, and always worth playing if it's around.

Great game. Can't see how it could be rated lower than the pro. Cost isn't one of the measures to rate it on.

Really? Derivative doesn't begin to capture how boring this machine was to everyone I've seen evaluate it. I wonder sometimes whether folks are paid to give the numbers on a few of these machines because on no planet would anyone honestly say this is a game that is enjoyable over and over or has good sound or lighting.

Not sure why we need a separate listing for the Spiderman Black Edition. It is the EXACT same game as the top 20 Spiderman game listed on Pinside. The black and chrome cabinet is much better looking in my opinion, making this a more attractive cabinet than the standard.

A great looking Pin and a great playing pin.
Wish I never sold mine.
What more can I say.

Yes, I've played one of these Black Spidey versions several times. This is a pin I would play at a location every time I go, but the "Lastability" of it as a HUO game would probably not be that long for me, except that it is pretty rare. The game design is ok, but wish there was better theatrics or better modes or something to keep my interest better. I like the theme and others would play it just for that. Maybe some extra modes can add some excitement/eye candy rewards. I do like the artwork graphics better than the original version or VE version. I like the pin, but it would get old after the honeymoon love period for owning one.

Best superhero themed pin. Fully developed theme, art, sounds and rules are well rounded. Backglass looks spectacular.

I'm not a big fan of comic book themed anything, but this machine is super fun to play and gorgeous to look at. Superb light show and great variety of shots. The magnet locking feature on Doc Ock is really really cool.... best toy on the machine. Sound is decent (the again, I haven't upgraded the speakers). Callouts have decent variety. If you get several ramps or combos in a row, Spiderman yells "Woooooo Hoooooo!", which I love. Hahaha. I have owned this game for about 2 months now and do not regret buying it. I play it every day, and definitely has a "one more game" factor. Bottom line: GREAT game, even if you don't like comic book themed games.

One of the Best Games out there. Fine example of modern Stern twist on a classic title. Out of all the marvel pinball games this is the best. Includes all three Spider-man movies. I just could not wait to include this into my collection. I just really get charged on adrenaline while playing. An aggressive pinball to play. In general I like the fighting style pinballs most. This is another level of excitement! The music, sound, and lighting are choreographed beautifully. A shaker is a must although the "BSM" already has it included.

Very fun and quick game with many tight ramp shots and the Sandman right in the middle. Graphics on DMD are great. Game is well lit with no dark or hidden spots. Just an all around nice Stern layout.

I was expecting a lot out of this pin, and was a little underwhelmed...It just didn't wow me; playfield layout is very cool, with a lot of variety...But just didn't click with me after about 5 plays.

Would love to spend more time on it, as I feel the theme is great; cabinet art is boring; and the toys on the playfield could have been better IMO; time will tell, as would really like to spend more time with it.

Sounds were a little underwhelming compared to other SuperHero Stern machines like Avengers and Transformers.

Still the best and fastest Stern game. Fun right from the start and has enough for beginners to do without being overwhelmed, yet has a very deep rule set.
