Spider-Man 3 (Wii) Trailer

Spider-Man 3 for the Wii looks like a lot of fun. Never cared much for the movies although I loved Spider Man comics when I was 10 years old. I'm hearing a lot of positive things about this game, it makes good use of the Wiimote without appearing gimmicky. My expectations of this game are high and I'm looking forward to getting a chance to rediscover a childhood hero.
