Made to promote the film of the same name, it was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube and Game Boy Advance on April 16, 2002 in North America (two weeks before the film's release), and June 7 in Europe. The Game Boy Advance version was later re-released and bundled on Twin Pack cartridge with Spider-Man 2: The Game in 2005. While the game directly adapts the plot of the film it is based on, it also builds upon it by including scenes and villains not present in the film. Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe reprise their roles from the film, as Spider-Man and the Green Goblin, respectively, while Bruce Campbell, who played a wrestling ring announcer in the film, narrates the game's tutorial and bonus levels. The game was published by Activision, and primarily developed by their recently-acquired subsidiary, Treyarch, who had previously ported Neversoft's 2000 Spider-Man video game to Windows and Dreamcast. Upon release, it received generally positive reviews, although some criticized its length, voice acting, and camera control, and became a best-seller. After the game's success, Treyarch became the lead developer of all Spider-Man titles published under Activision until 2008, and produced Spider-Man 2, based on the 2004 film of the same name, and Spider-Man 3, based on the 2007 film of the same name.

While most levels are indoors, there are several levels set outside, among the sky-scrapers of New York, which require the player to web-sling from building to building, as falling below a certain height will result in an instant Game Over. Levels use a scoring system that covers more aspects, such as "Time" (clear level in a set time), "Perfect" (not take damage/not be detected) and "Style" (use as many combos as possible). Some levels have other specific aspects, such as "Secrets" (uncover a secret area), "Combat" (defeat all enemies), and "stealth" (remain undetected by enemies). Players can gain, depending on difficulty, points on completing these tasks. On easy mode, each bonus is 500 poi
