I have to say this is one of the coolest, if not the coolest attack in the game. I love the animation of the Driders as they pull back on the web to trip you.
I also got my version of being attacked by Spiderman. After finishing The Portal Opens, I usually just jump and feather fall as far across town as possible. More than once I have been "snared" while being way up in the air.
Anyway, it's pretty cool.
