Apple has announced that
members can now download a free demo of Aspyr Media’s Spider-Man 2 and receive a 33 percent discount on the game when they order it from the online Apple Store. Spider-Man 2 features 18 missions spread across nine levels and pits the superhero against Dr. Octopus, Rhino and other popular villains from the long-running comic book series. The game also includes voice-over work by the stars of the film — including Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and Alfred Molina — and takes players to many encounters taken directly from the big screen adventure. The demo, which .Mac members can find in their Software folder, offers the game’s tutorial and first level.
