Spider-Man is an action game based upon the Marvel Comics character, Spider-Man, and is directly based on the first feature film starring the eponymous character. It was developed by Treyarch and released in 2002 for PC and several video game consoles. The game has many scenes and villains that did not appear in the film.

Spider-Man is a level based action game, with you playing as Spider-Man. Half the levels are indoors, but the rest of the levels are outside among the sky-scrapers of New York and require you to web-sling from building to building. Levels are in "sections" with a different enemy for each, each section lasting about 3 levels. Each level, except for the last two, has a bonus screen after it. The basic abilities are swinging, zipping, punching and kicking, web, camera lock, and the Web Mode in Enhanced Mode. Depending on how you combine different buttons, it makes different effects. Wall-crawling is automatic, and players are also able to lift up heavy and light objects such as cars and chairs.

There are 21 different combat combos, gained by collecting Gold Spiders, with four web controls, each having a type of "upgrade" to each. There is also "stealth mode", where Spider-Man is in shadow, and therefore is undetectable by enemies. This is necessary to gain extra points in the game. After completing the story mode of the game, an unlockable bonus allows the player to play any level in the game as Harry Osborn in his father's Green Goblin costume, complete with his glider and arsenal.
