Only one maniacal madman can force Spider-Man to unite with his sinister, arch-nemesis Venom: CARNAGE! His deadly rampage is tearing New York City apart! Only wild web-slinging maneuvers, crushing combat moves and Super Hero allies can save the city from total obliteration. It's maximum mayhem! It's Maximum Carnage! Paint the town red!
You can play through the game with Spider-Man and Venom going solo or alternating between the two. You can gain the help of other characters such as Captain America or Morbius by "summoning" them into the battle.
