The story is about four of Spider-Man's enemies escaping from Ravencroft prison: Doctor Octopus, the Green Goblin, Alistair Smythe, and the Alien Spider Slayer. It's up to Spider-Man to stop them before they wreck New York City.

During certain parts of the game the player can call in members of the Fantastic Four to help them fight enemies or bring the player extra web cartridges.

When Spider-Man captures all the villains, he encounters Venom. Venom tells Spider-Man that his way of dealing with criminals is not effective and goes to Ravencroft to kill all of Spider-Man's enemies. Spider-Man then fights Venom and all his other enemies inside Ravencroft and once again defeats them.
