[Dear designers of "Spider-Man 3"

I'm a big fan of Spider-Man, and of all the Spider-Man games published by Activision, but here is my problem: "I......HATE........YOOOOOUUUUU", literally. I love the game; but it has a major problem: It is too heavily annoying for the heavy requirement to press button sequence in boss fights, I don't need that, I despise that approach and for that I warn you from repeating the same mistake in "Web of Shadows" or I won't be getting anymore games of your design.

Sincerely yours
An angry fan]

Since I can't mail Treyarch themselves I posted a message for them here.
I highly doubt any of them will enter here to read it, it's just good to express your emotions, don't you agree?

The official website for Spider-Man comics, it deals with all sorts of comics Spider-Man showed in mainly published by Marvel. The focus on Spidey in other media there isn't strong but the site is good.

*Opening page:
A full menu: On the top of the page is the websites title, under the title:
. An image of Spider-Man that gets updated
. Link for buying back issues
. Links sorting some of the media's Spider-Man is available in, & where can you buy these items
. Web introduction
. New & Back Issues reviews
. Web icon's between 2 boxes each: News, Comics, Spider-Verse, History, Heroes (tells how each one of them is a close friend of Spider-Man), Villains (how threatening the villains are),
Entertainment & Media

*Comic reviews:
. For the new comics available there are 2 icons under the "comic shops" link, enter it to read a short review about new comics of the month, ratings out of 5 for each point (quality, significance & cover rating), characters & spoilers in white

. Older issues reviews read more details with 2 ratings after the review (they exist even for non-reviewed comics) for quality & significance, the ratings here are solid numbers, no half's.

. In the review there is no sarcasm or joking, I believe it's required since the web-site is so formal.

. You know what Spider-Man issues came out along with the issue reviewed in that month (N/A for annuals)

*Page opening: Press at a link and it'll directly open the page in a new window (or a tab in the case of Mozilla Firefox)

. Jigsaw Puzzles: Macromedia Shockwave is required to play them
. Name That Panel
. Trivia's: 10 multiple choice questions per subject.
. Wallpapers
. Music
. Movie & Television
. Video games 
My rating for the site:
. Background: 5/5
. Homepage: 5/5
. Reviews: 3/5 (the reviews are well made, but it's the fact that not so many reviews are available)
. Profiles: 3/5 (It doesn't contain the profiles of many of Spider-Man's supporting cast, and the profiles available aren't so detailed, just ink points)
. Entertainments: 5/5 (Most pleasing entertainments actually)
. Overall rating 5/5
. Entertainment
