Not so marvel-ous

Released near the end of the 16-bit generation, Separation Anxiety had the chance to be one of the best beat-em-ups of the 90’s. Not only did it feature the popular Spider-Man license, but it was the follow up to one of the best beat-em-ups of the generation in Maximum Carnage. Does it live up to this potential, or is this yet another example of a major license going to waste?

Unfortunately, it is the latter. The gritty graphics and exciting soundtrack of its predecessor are gone. They are replaced by a muddy soundtrack, sterile visual presentation and gameplay that is utterly uninspiring. Separation Anxiety fails to live up to both its rich license and its predecessor. Shame!


Spider-Man deserved better, but I guess that’s just the Parker luck!
