Ive never been a SM fan of the movies comics etc.. BUT this game is an instant classic! I can see this machine being highly sought after in years to come (sure it is already).
Great flow fun shots. Similar to AFM in some ways but better in my book.

This pin is fun to play and when you learn how to follow the scoring rules and your scores start to add up, you really want to play it over and over.....

One of the best games by Stern. Pretty good art (too bad they didn't use McFarlane's), nice lighting and quick play. This game will stand up to any modern era game and most of the classic ones from B/W. One of the few modern games I would actually consider owning at some point. Could be SR's best game ever--nice work!

i would love to own a spidey one of these days... got some good time on a couple of my buddy's sm machines and love the flow of the game. really dig the voices and callouts. the artwork is pretty sweet, love the toys too. this is def one of my fav top stern pins of all time. sometimes my game times can be a little on the long side, but still a classic pin for sure. dig it.

I didn't care for this one at first, as it's a bit challenging, but it grew on me quickly. It's got a nice variety of shots, scoring is good, and the theme is great. Artwork on the playfield looks a bit grainy and photoshop-y, like some newer Sterns tend to, but that's not a big drawback for me. Really cool-looking, and plays well. My only beef with the gameplay is that it involves a lot of chopping wood.

One of Stern's best. Homage to AFM with the drop down bank target.

Played for two hours at my local arcade. Good fast game--the kids loved it! Would not spend big bucks to own one.

I have almost done a 180 on this machine after really playing a nice example of one (my brothers). LED's really help this game a lot even if it is just to put cool whites in the GI and in the white inserts. An amazing difference in appearance. Once I learned the rules, it really becomes an interesting game with a few strategies that can play out. It has some risk vs reward aspects that can be looked back upon as a beginning to the AC/DC code. I owned a Star Trek pro for a while and this similar layout actually flows better and just feels more satisfying. The venom shot is always a treat. In the past I was critical of the artwork and production of this game, but after spending some time with it I think I unfairly judged it. The artwork is fine and the attention to detail in some of the playfield garnishments is very nice. I like the plastic webs placed here and there. Well done SR and Lyman. Quite a pair.

SM is a fantastic game. Gret theme, gameplay, rules. Made the mistake of selling it once and regretted it. Got one back and will stay for a long time.

I think this is one of the better Stern games. It is the best for game play out of the super hero pins. Fun ramps a couple of difficult "special" side shots. Overall very enjoyable.

SM is the total package. Fun, fast, flowing, challenging...but not impossible. Great sound, great artwork, great lightshow. Only drawback is the dots. They could have been so much cooler. Some are cool, and some are fine, but the main thing weighing my rating down is the animations.

What should i say, i just love to play the Spiderman! Its a fun, fast Game with loads of action.
Surely, good Players think it's to easy to play but i like the fact that also average Players can make a great battle. I think the Spiderman is a must in every collection above 10 Games and surely one of the future Stern Classics!

Unbelievable flow. Great art, playfield layout, and overall fun pin. Long ball times for the good player. Great ruleset by the great Lyman Sheats. One of the best end of game music sequences playing the Spider-Man theme song.

Finally got play time on this machine. I was no expecting it to be this good. Great rules, fast, toys...what's not to like.

This is an amazing pinball machine! No pun intended....... The theme is great, ball flow is spectacular, shots are well thought out and challenging, and voices/music is tied in impeccably.

Make sure you have/get a shaker motor.........it really makes the player more connected with the game.

It would have nice to have Green Goblin interactive like Sandman and Doc Ock, but I guess costs were a challenge.

Spiderman is an instant classic. If you can only have one pinball machine, this is the one to have.....apologies to Theater of Magic (a close 2nd), Medieval Madness and Lord of The Rings.
