If you haven't done it yet i feel sorry for you, probably the worst hour and a half of my life. However, when you play the last level over and over and get to Mysterio:

Stand in the lower left corner when the lasers are coming at you and simply jump twice, the other lasers that come out later won't hit you.

After you hit him three times and he comes down, hit him again, then he will transport back to the top. But before the cut scene hit him again with a box, by doing this you will spare yourself time of him coming down the next time, meaning after you hit him three times when he's on the balcony it will just go to the cut scene and then the lasers will start shooting again.

I know its not much, but playing this level eight times gets annoying, and seven minutes a time is better than ten.

Thanks for the tip... I am 60% through the game and I can tell upgrading everyone is going to be a pain. I will use your tip here for sure.

Also once you beat him you can press start to skip the cut scenes and restart the level....b/c each time it will show you the ending.

I found the game really cumbersome after a while and upgrading is a pain. I don't see the point in making it take so long to upgrade as really each character is basically the same...or at least I felt they were.

Thanks for the info. I wasn't able to try it when I first went through but I'll do it when I try to get that last achievement. 3,000 tokens doesn't go very far, does it. :(

you can also use cheats and still get achievements, i used them and still got achievements ;)

Unlockable: Characters (and more!) Enter the following codes on the helicarrier (in between missions) to unlock what you want…


5,000 Tokens - Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right
Green Goblin - Left, Down, Right, Right, Down, Left
Sandman - Right, Right, Right, Up, Down, Left
Venom - Left, Left, Right, Up, Down, Down

I can confirm this as i needed one more web stun item, read this, did the cheat and it unlocked once it had saved. I will admit i did brick it at 1st as i forgot it had to save :eek: Lol.

Nice one bro :)

repeating the last level over and over was horrific, luckily its quite short i think i had to do it over about 14 times to unlock everything

I do use that box tip, I try to entertain myself by seeing if I can time the toss correctly. As for the lower-left corner thing, I'll have to try that out.

The lower left corner works great! Wish I knew about the 5,000 tokens cheat though. Does't matter now - game is headed back to gamefly and I have finished another game!

I found that using Doctor Octopus helped get through things quicker. He's got a ground shock wave move that greatly helps when facing the largest Phantoms.

Anything that shortens the grind is good. This achievement is such a pain. Had fun getting the 925, but the last 75 are just annoying.

Ugh... this was so irritating to have to do over and over. Thank goodness I have the full 1000 now. Don't ever need to look back on it. :)
