Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is a computer and video game based on the comic book series and Spider-Man movies. The game was released on October 2, 2007.
Spider-Man: Friend or Foe was originally announced via a promotional page on the back of the Spider-Man 3 video game instruction booklet. The teaser stated that the game would be a "A new twist on the legend. A new take on the movies."
A planned PlayStation 3 version was cancelled.
According to the company report, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is a unique take on the media franchise. Inspired by the movies Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, and Spider-Man 3, this action/adventure game reinterprets big-screen moments and battles with a humorous twist. Players team up with famous heroes from the Marvel Comics universe to combat villains and then convert them to sidekicks after defeating them in epic boss battles. The game includes a co-op multiplayer mode, as Spider-Man or a sidekick, in locations around the globe, including Tokyo, Egypt, and Nepal.
In an opening cutscene, Spider-Man finds himself beset by all of his movie villains (except for the Burglar). He gains help from the New Goblin as he encounters the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, the Sandman, and Venom. All six characters suddenly find themselves targeted by an enemy force and one-by-one, the villains begin disappearing. Meanwhile, Spider-Man is rescued by S.H.I.E.L.D., who informs him that the meteor which brought the Venom symbiote to Earth had broken up in its atmosphere and five more pieces had landed in numerous locations across the globe. Fury sends Spider-Man to retrieve the shards of meteors. Spider-Man quickly finds that the villains who attacked him and several more of his foes, including Rhino and Scorpion, have been placed under mind control of a mysterious villain. The villain also creates and controls holographic/symbiote combination foot soldiers called "PHANTOMs" (short for Perpetual Holographic Avatar Nano Tech Offensive Monsters). As Spider-Man fights his enemies one-by-one and rescues them from the mind-control, they promise to aid him in finding the villain responsible. As Spider-Man progresses, he obtains more allies such as the Black Cat, Iron Fist, the Lizard, and Blade. He discovers that the evil mastermind is Mysterio, who intends to use his army to take over the world, using each shard of the meteor to make them stronger. Ultimately, Spider-Man breaks his last shard to defeat him using the black suit and turns the shards over to S.H.I.E.L.D., who decides to analyze them and refers to the study as "Project Carnage".
