    Arena/challenge mode

    christiankid7

      Id really really really like to see this return

       

      Maybe a fighting arena, an acrobatic arena, etc.....

       

      what do ya think

        • Re: Arena/challenge mode

          I'm pretty sure friend or foe(yes I actually played it) ad this feature and it was terrible. The character's powers were so uneven and cheap that my little using iron fist won all the time using some weird dragon aura type move. I do not want this feature

            well not a versus mode per se...but something like

            the fighting arena in sm2 and spidey 1 and spidey 2 enter electro

              Oh okay though I still don't think so

              • Re: Arena/challenge mode

                Definitely.

                It would be a great way to make the game last longer.

                Plus, you can add scenarios that wouldn't need context.

                 

                Like, fighting two bosses at once.

                 

                Seriously, imagine if in Shattered Dimensions, there was an arena battle, where each character could fight all 3 of their villains at the same time.

                 

                It might take a while to work out the kinks with the camera and such, but if they could get it right, it would be awesome to take on multiple bosses.

                  no!

                  why should there be a fighting arena!?

                  Spiderman's main ability is to swing not walk around beating bad guys.

                  Also this arena battle or horde mode is over used and shows lack of development put to a game.

                   

                  Just add co-op support or some other unlockable mode.

                  Arena mode/Horde mode is so 6th generation. We are in 7th gen and don't need that garbage.

                   

                   

                  Co-op, mulitplayer or some unlockable mode like Trial of St Lucia mode like from Dante's Inferno

                  no horde trash mode.

                    Is there anything you don't hate? Honestly.

                    • Re: Arena/challenge mode

                      No to mention that adding tacked-on co-op or multiplayer IS lazy developing. People eat up multiplayer even if the actual game is mediocre.

                      • Re: Arena/challenge mode

                        It is overused but I see it being used again.

                        • Re: Arena/challenge mode

                          Boss Rush Mode!!!!!

                            maybe I hate the fact that people are asking for dumb stuff and incoherent things that isn't bang for everyone's buck.

                             

                            I mean this is a new game, we need to demand new stuff, stuff we haven't seen or do not know about spiderman. We need new costumes yet people ask for old stuff. If they want to use symbiote costume you still have Shattered dimensions, you can go play that game.

                             

                            We need a better mode like trial of st lucia, multiplayer or co-op. Not old 6th generation hoard mode. This is 7th generation, we need new things.

                             

                            I'll be paying £40 for this game and I don't want to end up paying for a single player game.

                             

                            I'll consider the Create a Level/Map mode now. As long as we can customise scenarios and gameplay changer like Trial of St Lucia.

                             

                             

                            This is the recession, I'm not paying £40 for single player game, let alone experience old stuff I've experienced in the past game.

                             

                             

                            Like Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, had Team Missions. I would reconsider Arena/Challenge/Hoard mode IF ONLY it comes equipped with online co-op.

                              An arena challange mode would be good if it isn't just liike the shatterd dimension battles where you fight several hundred random purple things for no apparent reason... (I thought the title of this was arena challenge mods, i wondered who wanted to have a punch up with lobo...)

                              • Re: Arena/challenge mode

                                If this mode would be like the sim disc in MUA 1 then I would love it. It would just be reusing possible villains in the game but in a different event. For example, if GG is in the game there could be a combat arena level that is similar to a famous GG vs Spidey battle.

                                • Re: Arena/challenge mode

                                  Now that I've given it more thought I think it can be good if executed right. I would definitely play it if this mode is in the game but if it sucks I'm obviously not going to go back to it. Letting us post our scores of the 3 categories in SD when you beat a level in arena mode would be good.

                                  • Re: Arena/challenge mode

                                    Some people like old stuff, and some people like some of the "stupid ideas" that have been suggested in this forum. That's a fact. Just saying.

                                      You thinking of any specific people while you were posting this?

                                        Not really, just in general, lol.

                                        But it's still true.

                                        Lots of people are into nostalgia.

                                          No need for the dumb comment of your post. Different strokes for different folks. If people express their idea they do. No need to look down on it because you don't believe the same/think it's dumb. Being respectful and discussion leads to the possibility of these so called "dumb" ideas becoming better ones.

                                              The challenge mode should have different types of challenges like racing, beat the guys up, find a specific object, go through a part without touching the ground, and stuff like that. It could take place inside the actual levels or there could be custom levels.

                                                      How would racing work if level based? Would it be defeat the number of enemies on each level within the time limit?

                                                        I was thinking more like go through the entire level by web swinging through it the fastest you can. Defeating guys are optional

                                                          we had the same idea in Shattered Dimensions:/ with the Webs of destiny.

                                                          so how exactly is it new?

                                                           

                                                           

                                                          Just add co-op to the game or trial of st lucia style.

                                                           

                                                          I was reading an article about "what is new in Edge of Time".

                                                          Exactly what is new? why should we be seeing Symbiote costume again in this game? or Webs of destiny type challenge?

                                                           

                                                           

                                                          Arena challenge mode should be added if we can change the scenario and how things play.

                                                            Just remember the old phrase: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

                                                            Wouldn't mind having the Web of Destiny return, it was fun.

                                                            Though I'm not sure how it would work with the Cause and Effect gameplay in this one.

                                                              I agree with Optimusprime12 (starting to become a habit  :) ). Good things don't always have to be new. If something worked well in previous games, why shouldn't they bring it back? Of course new games need new features, because otherwise playing would eventually get boring. But there's really no reason to remove anything great, just because it has been used previously.

Besides I am kind of getting tired of always having new controls for each spidey game. Sure some of it is the same but it would be nice if you can bring what skills you got from SD into edge of time

And really we are just saying what things we want in the game so don't hate on us for it. The way I think of it is let the devs think of new things while I tell them what old things could come back because I liked them. It would be easy for them and they will always make new additions to the modes. And please remember old ideas spark new ideas. A bicycle was made by putting 2 of the seemingly old wheels together and that is a great invention
