Amazing Spider-Man trailer runs atop a bus

The true joy of being Peter Spiderman is, one imagines, skittering freely about New York City, swinging, running and leaping from building to wall to bus roof. Developer Beenox is trying to capture this feeling in its movie tie-in game The Amazing Spider-Man, a new trailer shows, with an context-sensitive system dubbed 'Web Rush.'

Activating Web Rush slows time while you select a route or course of action, then Spidey pulls an array of tricks out of his bag to automatically perform that. It all looks a bit like the context-sensitive shenanigans of, say, Assassin's Creed, but with webs and riding on cars and whatnot.

The Amazing Spider-Man is scheduled to swing onto Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo 3DS and DS on June 26, published by Activision. Obviously, most editions won't be remotely this fancy:

      Why not give it to another company to handle for once?
