Defeat Dr.Octopus (The easy way!):
In the final battle after you have hit all the machine switches, Dr.Octopus's shield will disappear and this is Spider-man's chance to take him out. To defeat Dr.Octopus requires you to let him chase you, if you chase him, he'll easily grab you and do dramatic damage. So when your web bar is between 3/4 full and full, wait on 1 of the 4 platforms (for example the one that Mary Jane is on.) and let him come to you. When he reaches the platform your on, switch the spidey sense on (up on the D-Pad.) and dodge his first attack, then hold the L button down and run at him still in spidey sense mode and use the uppercut combat skill. This should send him flying into the air and back down on the floor, quickly charge up a jump and web swing away, and then turn the spidey sense off. Using the spidey sense mode will have decreased your web bar, so to refill it just keep swinging about in mid-air. This should help it regenerate, but when your web swinging try not to collide with any posts or walls, this will stop the regeneration process until you start swinging again!
Repeat this process until he gives up completing the game (unofficially).

Following Black Cat:
In the missions where you have to follow Black Cat, try not to swing from building to building because you will not be very accurate and fall too far behind. Instead, try flinging yourself from building to building. To do this, hold the Jump and when it is fully charged, also hold Turbo. Then, still holding Jump + Turbo, run to the edge of the building and release Jump, but continue to hold Turbo. This will fling Spider-Man farther than just jumping, and is much more accurate than swinging. Also, if you are just about to land on a building, but are slightly short of making it to the top, try using the zip line when you can still see the top of the building. Note: You must buy the zip line first. It should attach to the top and zip you over.
Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge:
To get across the Brooklyn Bridge, swing under it, if you have not defeating Shocker for the final time.
When you are in need of more moves, fly around the city and look for buildings with a web-like top on them. Sometimes the buildings will be very small and are white, which may make the web almost invisible. There are also different color webs, which will make the web more visible on your map in the lower right side of the screen. Inside of one of those stores, you will see a gold spinning decal which you should "open up". This will bring you to the upgrade screen, where you can spend your Hero Points to get other attacks and much more.
There are four mini-games at the Arcade: Dodge Hall, Directional Attack, Web Attack, Air Combo. Enter the Arcade, then go to the back of the room. Press B to activate the marker to start the Dodge Hall mini-game. Complete round 3 to unlock the Directional Attack mini-game (which is more of a tutorial). In the Directional Attack mini-game, follow it as instructed to unlock the Web Attack mini-game. This is also basically just a tutorial. In the Web Attack mini-game, follow it as instructed to unlock the Air Combo mini-game.
Easy Hero Points:
In the street crime mission where you must fight off thugs stealing money from the armored van, untie the officers that are kneeling next to the van by using Action. You will earn an additional 50 Hero Points for each officer you untie. However, make sure you untie them before you get too far away and the game removes their presence.
Fill Style meter faster:
Using the "Spider Reflexes" ability drains your Style meter (the blue bar). You can refill the Style meter by performing the Air Tricks combos, but they will only add a little bit to the blue bar each time. To fill the Style meter faster, avoid hitting buildings while you are swinging around and doing the Air Tricks. The more Air Tricks you string together without bumping into buildings, the faster your meter will be refilled. When you bump into a building while swinging, it stops the Style meter from being refilled and you have to start another string of Air Tricks. If you are going too fast and cannot avoid slamming into a building, try going into a Wall Sprint just as you make contact with the wall, then leap off the wall into a swing. If done correctly, you will not break your Air Tricks combo.
Farther web swings:
When you are swinging, hold L + A. Release when you are about to get make another web shot come out. This will make you go farther.
To do a loop swing, press R to swing. About half way through the swing, hold L. Spider-Man will swing in a loop over the anchor of his webline. This will work well with objects such as cranes. You can also do this with a double web swing. Instead, just press R(2), but hold it down the second time, then hold L. This move can results in more jump distance.
To execute a Web Rodeo, shoot a web at an enemy so that you have them webbed up and a line attached to them. While the line is still attached, quickly start rotating the Analog-stick in a circle to spin the enemy around Spider-Man's head in a circle. Keep rotating the Analog-stick as long as you want to maintain the Web Rodeo. The animation of Spider-Man swinging the enemy around moves slower than the speed you need to rotate the Analog-stick.
This attack will knock back an enemy, Press Web, Attack, Grab. Spidey will do the yank kick, then grab them by the neck and jump, flip, then throw them.
This is a clearing attack that will knock back the enemy. Press Attack, Web(2). Spidey will do the Web Trip, then take the line he tripped him with, spin around once (knocking down surrounding enemies), then let go and fling them away.
Faster wall running:
When running up a wall and are about to fall, quickly press A and hold X. You will go faster for a moment. Keep doing this until you get up the wall.
No blocks from normal crooks:
Web-hang normal crooks and they will not block. You can easily take their weapon and attack them. However, if you take too long they will fall off the light post. You must be near a light post or you will not be able to hang them. The combo to do this is B(2), Y, A and it must be bought from the Spidey Store. You can also practice your fighting in the air with them hanging.
Holding Air Tricks longer:
After purchasing the Air Tricks upgrades (jump off of a swing and press A repeatedly), you can press A quickly to perform the aerial acrobatic moves quickly one after the other, or hold A to maintain an Air Trick longer. Holding an Air Trick longer will gain more style points for the style meter (the blue bar). You can mix it up by quickly pressing A a few times, then holding A to maintain the last Air Trick.
In order to free fall you must first be on top of a building. Just run or walk off and you should form a diving position. If you were high enough, the game should shake and you can see the speed. You can do this with the construction worker that you were supposed to "save" from falling off of the building, but when you land you will just roll and the construction worker will not be affected. Note: Sometime when you free fall you will lose health if you hit the ground head on.
Survive big falls:
You can survive a big fall by getting close enough to the wall of a building, doing a Wall Sprint, and go down.
After you jump off a high building, get close to the wall. If you go too fast, keep pressing the Analog-stick Toward the wall to slow down.
When doing a long jump, hold L to do a roll to save your health.
Avoiding bad cop aim:
When the cops need your help and are being fired at, they will fire at you instead of the bad guys. Do more Spider Sense mode to dodge.
The robots in the chemical level can be dumb. When you are in the room near the security grid after shutting down the C and D control panels, hide in the shadows in the room next to the grid room. You can eliminate as many robots as desired and they will never notice you. This is an easy way to earn points. When you are done, just jump down and run to shut it down.
Getting better moves and awards faster:
Always do a lot of crime fighting while not fighting Bosses in order to be able to buy all of the moves after each chapter. By doing this, you can do a variety of moves against Bosses and other enemies.
Hang a thug on a streetlight:
If you are in a street fight and need to hang up thugs for a little while, press B(2), Y, X at a thug . This will hang him up onto a lamp post. You have to make sure that you are near a lamppost in the first place.
First, get your opponent webbed up very well. Then, get your opponent into a grapple (for example, Y + B). Once this has been done, move the D-pad or Analog-stick Left to Right while holding Y. Doing this causes Spider-Man to toss his opponent back and forth over his head into the ground or another nearby object. After you feel you have beaten them a decent amount, press B. Do not let your opponent go free from Spider-Man's grapple hold. Doing this causes Spider-Man to jump up and tie them up to an object. Note: This trick will only work if you are near a lamppost, traffic light, etc.
To hang a thug on a street light and get credit for it in the game stats menu, they must be unconscious. After you defeat an enemy, go to their unconscious body and quickly press B(2), Y, A to execute the Web Hanger combo. This will punch the thug twice, web them up, and slam them. Then, jump up to the nearest streetlight and hang them upside down. Note: The Web Hanger combo is an upgrade that must be purchased during or after Chapter 11, and costs 2,500 Hero Points.
Save thugs for later:
Buy Grapple at the Spidey Store. Find the small glass building. Find some regular thugs, grapple them, then throw them in. You can now fight them later.
Get to a rooftop (preferably at the Statue Of Liberty). This is useful at heliports or rooftop robberies. Stun an enemy with a Web Blast then reel them in with the move bought at the Spidey Store. Then, throw them off.
When on the ground, stun an enemy with a Web Blast then reel them in with the move bought at the Spidey Store. Find a barrier separating land from water, such as the one by the pizza parlor. Then, throw him from a short distance. If done correctly, you should hear their head hit the barrier and they will tumble in.
Stun all enemies, disarm them all, reel one in, and throw him at the others. Also, try swinging, etc. to see how many you can get in one shot. .
When you only have one opponent to kill, grapple him (if already bought from the Spidey Store) and go to the highest building. Sling yourself off the building and pile drive him (if already bought from the Spidey Store) with X while you are in the air with him in your arms. After you slam his head in the concrete he should be instantly killed.
Human punching bag:
Tie a enemy to a lamp post using the Web Hanger move. You can then just beat them up until you get tired of doing so.
After defeating a criminal after a crime, you can keep beating on him until you leave.
Use bodies as weapons:
Whenever you have defeated an enemy, you can still swing them around and hit other enemies within range.
Use enemy's weapons:
When you have taken a gun or wrench out of a random thug's hands, they will say something like "Hey, give that back". After they have said this, run over to the weapon. Spider-Man should pick it up. This does not happen often, but when it does press B to hit or shoot the enemy with it. The weapon will disappear after that mission.
Walk on the ground with hands up in the air:
Swing in the air but very low. When you touch the ground, do not let go.
Unlimited Spider Reflexes:
To do this trick, you must first purchase the Bicycle Kick that can only be performed in "Spider Reflexes". When in a fight turn on the "Spider Reflexes" and perform the Bicycle Kick to an enemy. When Spider Man goes down to the ground getting ready to launch the enemy into the air, quickly turn off the "Spider Reflexes". Spider Man will continue through with the combo, but he no longer be draining his "Spider Reflexes" bar. Once the barrage of kicking starts, remember to continue the kicking as long as possible. Every kick will refill some of your "Spider Reflexes".
If you have perfect timing, when you Wallsprint, charge your jump and as soon as you release it, a split second later do a Wallsprint again. Note: It is a good idea to get better upgrades to make you faster.
In order to get a big drop larger than that from the Empire State Building, become skilled with the mid-air fight. When in a fight with any ordinary thug, begin yanking him into the air, hitting him then bouncing up into the air even higher then before. Repeat this technique even after the thug has been defeated. Once you have gotten as high as you would like, fall back down zip lining at the last possible moment. The drop will not count if you die. You will be surprised how high you can get with practice. Note: There is a limit, and if you go too high the game will glitch -- you will see a loading screen and you will appear out of one of the bodies of water.
When you reach a hole in the netting you will reach a open space. Advance Web it.
Hint Marker comment:
One of the Hint Markers in the city will tell you "When you manage to hit all the Hint Makers they will all say something different". Once you hit all the Hint Markers they will all literally say "Something different".
Easy Skyscraper Tokens:
Go to the map of the city and look very closely at the buildings. You will see little gold dots on top of the buildings. They represent the token locations.
Easy Hideout Tokens:
On your map in the lower right hand corner, locate all the buildings with a pink top. This is where you can enter and get your goodies. Some are a little difficult to find -- be alert.
