The first thing that will likely jump out at you is the game's unique visuals. Like its console counterparts, Ultimate Spider-Man sports a cel-shaded style. Now, the Game Boy Advance obviously can’t do strictly true cel-shading, but the effect captured by the game’s sprites and animations roughly approximate this look about as well as can be expected.
In contrast to the visuals, the game's audio is fairly typical for a portable superhero game. The music mainly consists of fast paced “I’m here to save you” style tracks when playing as Spider-Man, or dark atmospherics if it’s a Venom level. As any Spider-Man features lots of high acrobatics and down and dirty fisticuffs, the effects usually come down to either a goopy web sound, a swooshing jump or swing, or the pleasing melodies of your fist across a thug's face.
