    Amazing (HA) game!

    I'd read the reviews of this game online but never any "in-depth" reviews as I was pretty sure I wanted it and didn't want any 'surprises' to be spoiled. This is probably my favorite console game ever. I'm a huge comic nerd, and I've always liked Spider-Man, so this game is right up my alley. It's "open-world" --so if you've ever played an open-world game you know what to expect. It's a main story, lots of side missions, towers that have to be unlocked to reveal a map, etc. There is nothing super-unique about any of it....save for the fact of how well it's all done. The creators appear to have really built New York City from the ground up! The details of the map are just incredible--from Central Park to Radio City to The Empire State Building it's all there, and all where it should be....with a few Marvel touches of course (Avengers tower is a prominent feature of the skyline). The story is fun, without really following the comics canon to a fault. This game is set in it's own universe with some interesting touches--Norman Osbourne is the mayor, MJ is an old flame, etc, but the pieces of the Spider-verse are all there, with lots of great easter eggs for old-school fans. The controls are a little wonky from time-to-time (the chase missions frustrate me to no end) but for the most part they are pretty easy and feel natural. Once you get the fight mechanics down you want to go looking for fights because they're so much fun. The best and most fun of this game BY FAR is the web-swinging mechanics. Swinging around the city is an absolute blast, and really feels like Spider-Man. I probably could have completed the main quest by now, but I've had so much fun exploring (and random crimes come up all the time so there's lots of action breaks) that I haven't been in any hurry to get it done. The side missions are fun...for the most part. Some, obviously, are more fun than others, but a couple get a little repetitive. You'll want to complete them all just to unlock all the other cool stuff like... The spider-suits!!! I've only unlocked about half at this point, but they are awesome---suits you've seen on alternate universe spider-men, the suit made just for this game, even some surprise suits (and some I had never even heard of) are unlockable in this! The level of detail in the suits (like the rest of the game) is just stunning. Overall if you like Spider-man, action games, open-world games or just plain fun games (that are suitable for the family) then you can't go wrong with this. I'm actually glad there's downloadable content coming--I will get whatever they release so long as it leads to more playtime!

    Spider-Man is going to be a game that's nominated for a ton of awards, but likely win very few. That's not so much a knock on the game itself as it is the stellar competition it's up against. It's an entertaining and unique experience in it's own right, but there's a decent of repetition that drags it down. The game itself reminds me a lot of Assassin's Creed 1 or Arkham Asylum. I fully expect the inevitable sequel to blow this game out of the water. Web slinging feels spectacular and is extremely fun. Kudos to Insomniac for giving you the option to fast travel around the city though I'd find myself slinging from point A to point B most of the time. JJJ podcasts helped provided some entertainment which added to the experience. You also can pick off a lot of side missions along the way. The story surprised me in how confident it was told. I loved seeing Peter as an experienced Spider-Man, a new version of MJ, and a fleshed out Miles Morales. As a fan of the comics this definitely felt like a fully realized alternate universe version of some beloved characters. Things were familiar, but new and I could easily see this as a graphic novel or its own series. I loved the take on all of the new characters. There's a decent amount of gameplay where you're MJ and Miles and thankfully those missions don't feel like a chore to get through. All the supporting villains and characters really added to the world especially in the context of an experienced hero. There are references to a bigger Marvel universe which are hopefully allusions to a much bigger sequel rather than just Easter eggs. Playing through the game is a pretty easy Platinum Trophy if you're into that sort of thing. I was able to get it after completing the final mission of the game though you can always go back and take on the side quests after the fact. TBH I don't know if i'll be getting the DLC for the game though they sound like they're solid additions to the game and not just pure money grabs. There's a much bigger sequel to be made both in terms of gameplay and story that I'm looking forward to. Who knows what platform it'll come out on, but this game is enough to make me so much more.

    Insomniac Games did a great job bringing Spider-Man to the gamers. From gamers to comic fans, especially for those Spidey fans out there. They won't be disappointed with the Spider-Man gameplay. An easy combat combo system complete with finishers that just brings those comic pages to gamers and comic fans alike. The tutorial built into the story's prologue will get players familiar with controls. Yes, gamers can even swing through the city freely pulling off acrobatics stunts along the way to missions. Players can unlock, spidey suits each with unique special abilities and mods to empower Spider-Man. A with combat skill point system that gives more abilities to Spider-Man. Players do NOT need to unlock the skills system just adds for more combat options. For those players that like to, unlike all the skills before heading out on the story. Check out this youtube link here: https://youtu.be/smkgcGQD3bQ to unlock all the skill points early and level up Spider-Man. Along with combat skill points, players can add special gadgets to Spider-Man's combat abilities. There is even an in-game only social media menu. Players if want to, can read all the comments the citizens have about Spider-Man good and bad. The game is not without flaws and one of the biggest ones is the controls. At times the control gets sluggish or nonresponsive. Switched out controllers several times and even purchased a new controller and the response is still the same. This is a pain during combat and while trying to complete the challenges presented. There the tedious parts of the story that players have to play as the supporting characters. There was only one of those that enjoyed playing. Then the combat with the villain bosses being scripted doesn't distract but just would've liked to have more combat. Upon completing the story gamers can still free roam around the city fouling crimes. Hang out with citizens around the city to riding the subway. There is also additional content being added to the game that will introduce more gameplay with release dates yet to be determined. There may be reasons that some players will compare this title to another older title, Batman Arkham Asylum games. But Spider-Man stands on it's on webbing here.

    Almost perfect.

    Almost everything is perfect. I wish that the range to web things for swinging was a bit longer, and there are few instances were I feel like I'm telling the game to do something, and the conditions for what it requires are met (and does so 95% of the time when told in similar circumstances), and it disagrees with me about that and so it feels like it's ignoring button inputs, which can be super frustrating. I feel like there could be some adjustment on the button layout to make things smoother. Those issues weren't so common that they really detract from everything else the game does well. It looks great, it feels great. The story is easy to get invested in, and I want to follow it into sequels. I would note that one of the things many people complain about are sections where you're not playing as Parker/SM, with a largely stealth-focus. I enjoyed them. I enjoyed the game taking time to show other peoples perspectives, stepping back from SM's powers, giving them time to develop and shine. The sections aren't perfect, they could definitely be improved, and I hope a sequel maintains them while fleshing them out. I don't feel the game can escape comparison to the Arkham "Quadrilogy" (though not in a bad way, as of yet). Of that series, Asylum had a narrower focus on location and story that made a stronger package than its successors. The follow-ups, while still mostly solid, diluted the experience when they expanded scope and focus, and it came with a loss of quality and over-use of mechanics/concepts. Spider-Man already matches Arkham City in scope, though it does manage to have a story of much higher quality and emotional resonance. My hope is a sequel that can expand the gameplay mechanics, while continuing to maintain the story-telling quality that I feel diminished as the Arkham series progressed.

    Before Robert Downey, Jr. popularized Iron Man, the most well known of Marvel’s superheroes was Spider-Man. He stood apart from other heroes because, when he wasn’t fighting crime, he was a pretty ordinary kid with relatable problems. He’s flawed, and funny, and trying to have a normal life, despite having these awesome abilities. A Spider-Man game was released earlier this month, available only on PlayStation 4, and set when Peter Parker has been Spider-Man for eight years. His relationship with Mary Jane Watson is strained, and he’s struggling to pay the rent on his tiny Manhattan apartment while working as a research assistant - and, of course, taking out street thugs in his time off. Familiar villains, like Doctor Octopus and The Vulture appear, as well as a newer villain - Mr. Negative. You start off with a few signature abilities - being able to swing from building to building, sticking bad guys to walls, and a good ol’ one-two punch. The game gradually unlocks new abilities, letting you learn how to control Spider-Man without having to stick you in an hour-long tutorial before you get to start playing. This works out fantastically, especially since it’s rewarding just to swing through the surprisingly accurate recreation of Manhattan. When I first started playing, I just swung around for 30 minutes, admiring the city - and when I stopped, I hadn’t realized it, but I landed right next to the Guggenheim. There have been lots of Spider-Man video games, which have ranged from horrible to pretty good. I didn’t pay a lot of attention to the news that there was a new Spider-Man game in development, since I figured it would be a movie tie-in and just be an average beat-em-up game. And then, when the game was released, I saw a flood of people on social media raving about it, and I’ve never been so happy to be wrong.

    Fun times with Spidey

    As with most games in this vein, there is a lot of repetition in tasks, but the storyline helps open up the side-quests necessary to fully level out and equip Spider-Man. Enough new non-story material gets introduced gradually to help prevent the repetitive nature from being so obvious. You can complete some landmark or crime events while swinging to your next story location. The unlocking of suits provides for some extra powers with the nice feature being that once unlocked you can use a suit-specific power with any of the unlocked suits. There are three equipment slots that give added bonuses, but since you can only equip three at a time you have to be picky in which ones you use (and unlock) and they don't seem to add much to the game. Gadgets are required for some parts of the storyline and once unlocked certain ones have certain advantages for completing bonus goals. All in all the game comes across like a combination of the Batman Arkham games and Assassin's Creed. Cinematic story with plenty of open world opportunities to explore. Places where the game has a deficit come with some of the odd camera angles during combat and web-swing chases - you will be blocked from all vision of what is happening, likely multiple times, during a fight as the camera gets stuck behind a van, water tower, or some other obstruction. Likewise, playing as Miles or Mary Jane you don't get the benefit of Spidey-Sense or a side-screen warning when a bad guy is on the verge of spotting you. Some of the Miles/Mary Jane sequences really slow the game down. When you're done, make sure to let the credits roll for a while....

    Spider-Man for PS4 gets a LOT right: swinging, combat, story, Spidey's personality, etc. But there are a few nitpicks. For example, the Sinister Six team-up teased is really only about maybe 5% of the game - the majority of the story focuses on Mr. Negative, a relatively new character to Spider-Man's rogues gallery. That's not necessarily bad by itself, but it does feel like there was a lot of wasted potential. The story itself is also fairly predictable, even though it's held together with some really great performances. There is a lot of busywork tasks like collecting backpacks, landmark tokens, research tokens, pigeons (yes, really) that, while not BAD, never feels particularly interesting, either. I also found myself surprised at just how much aerial combat there was, particularly late game, when the combat system frankly doesn't support it very well. The last few fights are more annoying than challenging, particularly the final boss, who feels cheap and unwieldy. There are also occasional stealth segments where you play as someone other than Spider-Man and must sneak past armed enemies. These are usually pretty short and decently-constructed, but every time one popped up I wanted to rush through so I could get back to being Spider-Man already. Overall I definitely enjoyed my time with it, the photo mode is great, it looks and feels fantastic, I love the optional suits and just how satisfying it is to see them in motion, but it's definitely not without some flaws.

    It is hard to make a video game. Insanely hard. It is a task so gargantuan as to terrify even seasoned developers. That makes it nothing short of a miracle when a game even makes it to market. Making a GOOD game takes the efforts of dozens, if not hundreds of people (with rare exception). Making a GREAT game might as well be one of the Trials of Hercules. And making a Superhero game worth anything at all is akin to balancing a thousand camels on the head of a pin. So when I say that Insomniac have done the impossible, have delivered on their promises, and produced a Great Superhero game, I want you to understand my full meaning. Spider-Man is a revelation, greater than the sum of its parts and yet made of so many wonderful small bits. The graphics are gorgeous, bordering on ridiculous. The action is fun and tight, easily controllable, and non-stop. While it is by no means flawless, the minor scuffs and scratches disappear when you take in the grand scope of the title. You may see some unfair comparisons to the Arkham series of games. While the combat appears that way at first, there is far more depth and strategy required in Spider-Man than in any of Batman's adventures. A wide variety of goons keep you on your toes from the beginning to the end. For me, the most important part of any game is story. Spider-Man does not disappoint, with a brand-new adventure for the friendly neighborhood web-slinger. I honestly cannot recommend this game enough.

    Best Spiderman game ever made

    Insomniac Games has made the best Spider-man game ever. The open world coupled with the easy to learn controls makes swinging through the Big Apple totally fun. This game doesn't just showcase Spiderman but also Peter Parker and his "normal" life. The cut-scenes are charming and well written, as well as the characters, and feel as if it could have been in a movie. It makes you feel a connection to all the characters. Even the characters that usually take backstage. There are opportunities to play as Mary Jane (MJ) and Miles Moranis for example. There are also nods to the movies and comics throughout the games showing just how much love the developer has for this franchise. There is even a Stan Lee cameo. AlsoThere is plenty to do. Especially if you are a "collector". Peter's backpacks are stashed all over the city that have interesting items to give a history to the character as well as occasionally providing upgrades to your suit. And that is just one type of item to collect. Thus making the game replayable even after the main story is completed. I am writing this review quickly and off the cuff so I hope it doesn't sound like disjointed rambling. Suffice to say, this game is a must have. Every game system needs a "killer app" to justify purchasing a system. PS4 has had a few exclusives that are good "killer app" candidates (Uncharted, Horizon Zero Dawn, etc) but this is by far the best "killer app" to justify owning a PS4. imho

    The story is wooden and doesn't have any consistent edge, but the gameplay mechanics, traversal system, and combat mechanics are amazing. Webslinging through the city is like a constant minigame unto itself - you can unlock aerial tricks that build combat meters and XP. Spidey is remarkably responsive to environments, launching off pipes, cornering buildings, and moving through changes in terrain on a vertical wall run with near-seamless fluidity. The combat system reminds me of the Batman: Arkham Freeflow system, but faster and more responsive. Spidey's web zip ability means you can move quickly between different groups of enemies in a combat area, while the game holds you accountable for actually doing that by spawning enemies with guns, grenades, and rocket launchers. Plenty of character customizations are available, both strategic and cosmetic. There could always be more suit options, but there are plenty of looks available for Spider-Man. The game even manages to incorporate some puzzles and minigames that relate to Peter Parker's work as a scientist. I typically stick to games with edgier stories and M ratings, but this game is worth your time. I mean, even the Week 1 glitches managed to be kind of endearing (I have not encountered any, but as of the time of this review, the game's software version is on at least 1.05, so I'm sure they've patched a lot). Superb game, and a LOT of fun

    Have you played Spider-Man 2 for the PS2? Have you played any of the Infamous games? Then you've already played this game. There is nothing new, groundbreaking, or anything done exceptionally well other than including the Spider-Man brand. How this average game has gotten such massive sales and glowing reviews is beyond me, other than the typical comic book fan's obsessive need to consume every piece of media containing men in tights. It's by no means a bad game though. It has decent graphics. I won't say great as there are far too many examples of games with much better visuals. It has good writing. Although, once again it's nothing amazing either. The combat is decent, although not as elegant as the Arkham games. It's also got a good length for an action game, though it achieves that by padding the experience with some of the most monotonous and repetitive missions in a recent open-world game. Oh yeah, don't get me started on those awful stealth missions. Wait, I thought I had good things to say? This game is the very definition of average, and it walks that line as its seams fall apart the longer it goes on. If you have an undying love for Spider-Man, it may be worth it. If not, just stick to the Infamous games, which are far superior.

    Marvel's Spider-Man, developed by the great folks at Insomniac, is another powerhouse PlayStation exclusive showing off what happens when you focus on building genre-defining high quality experiences. Pros: -Incredible sense of movement and speed; you truly feel like Spider-Man as you swing through the streets of New York. -Great superhero story with excellent voice acting to bring the characters to life. Fulfills your Spider-Man expectations while leaving you wanting more. -Beautiful looking graphics and portrays a "lived-in" New York City with stable performance on PS4 Pro -Lots of suits and abilities to experiment with and plenty of freedom to play the way you'd like to play -Tons to collect and do in the open world in between main missions -Great pacing with ups and downs along the way Cons: -Side content is repetitive and underdeveloped -Didn't use the villains as much as I would have liked considering how well they were portrayed when present in the story -Only including Manhattan instead of the entire sprawling NYC with all its boroughs (including Spidey's home of Queens) seems like a big missed opportunity to change things up throughout the game

    Many games these days lack either details in graphics or story line or gameplay or even acting and character development. This game did not remake the previous spiderman. It introduced a new storyline of a more seasoned peter parker. It had amazing character/villain development. Many easter eggs. Beautifully included many classic spider man villains. The graphics were amazing to point I could see through most of the windows of the building and see the furnitures inside. The fight mechanism was easy to learn yet satisfying and never boring. The gameplay was amazing. The story line and hours it took to complete it was very satisfying. The difficulty level was nice meaning it would achievable but also not easy to make you shy away from continuing. I can not say enough about this game. The story was so good I kept thinking about it during the day and waiting to get back to it to see what happens next. They even had easter eggs that you wouldn't expect that came from various recent sources and when you see them it will make it just that much better. In the end please buy it and enjoy this game as It is just as good as GTA was in terms of playability and attention to details.

    Absolutely amazing game. This game is definitely a looker and the use of HDR is implemented well. The city of New York looks incredibly detailed and true to life with sprawling draw distances. Makes you feel like you're actually Spiderman when you swing around. The web-swinging mechanic is phenomenal and as you progress begins to feel much more fluid. There is an enormous amount of content in the form of side missions, collectibles, and crimes to stop. You have several unique gadgets to use in combat that can be upgraded and are actually fun to use. There are over twenty suits to unlock that all give your Spidey a unique feel and are a great nod to various Spiderman comics. The only downside would be that there are some story missions where you play as other characters that just feel lame in comparison and you itch to get back to playing as Spiderman. Overall this is one of the best PS4 exclusive games you can buy and probably the best Spiderman game since the 2002 Playstation 2 classic. If you own a PS4, you owe it to yourself to just buy the game already and experience it for yourself.

    I've played a lot of Spider-Man games in my day, and this is one has got to be the best one. I'm already a huge fan of Insomniac, but they really knocked it out of the park with this game. I'm only at 50% completion and I can't put it down. Playing as Spider-Man has never felt so satisfying. You've got a ton of moves at your disposal for webbing your way around the city as well as for fighting. I rarely use the fast-travel option because swinging and zipping around the city is so much fun. I get excited when the game alerts me to crime in the area because beating the stuffing out of bad guys is a blast. The story is really great. I love how classic Spider-Man villains are woven in with great designs. Cut-scenes are really well-directed and the character models are detailed and animated so well that it's almost nearing the Uncanny Valley here. Really impressive to me. Tons of stuff to do, but you never feel overwhelmed like some open-world games. You can make progress quickly if you want, or just dink around the city doing what you feel. If you have a PS4 and like Spider-Man even just a bit, play this game. It is so good.

    I'm not a fan of buying games on day one that are single player only. I just feel like they don't have the replay value that titles with single player and multiplayer have right out of the gate. That being said, this is truly an amazing game to be played by yourself. I've played this game over many sittings with a total playtime of just over 18 hours and I had a lot of fun along the way. The one thing I am not a fan of, and this has to do with a lot of sandbox-style games, is that I lose interest quickly. With a myriad of fetch quests and do-this-do-that stuff, it somehow kept me glued to the game. There are somewhat random events and there are some events that are so similar that they have you wondering how many times you've done it. The boss fights leave you wanting more, but feel very well thought out. While never too difficult, they always seemed to end when I wanted it to keep going. Ultimately, if you're the type to never finish a sandbox game (GTA, Just Cause), you may want to wait until this goes on sale. If you're a diehard spiderman or playstation exclusive fan, you need this game.

    Having fallen off the Spider-Man band wagon many games ago, showing my age here I know. I was interested in this new entry, and then got excited that it wasn't some retelling of our beloved Wall Crawler's origin. I have yet to beat the game but can say I have had trouble putting the controller down while playing. I like what I have seen of the story, feeling like a breath of fresh air. Swinging around the city has been a blast with only a minor learning curve. The voice acting is very strong in this entry. So far my only real complaint is the enemy variations but it's nothing to killing the fun. Brawlers, brutes, goons with guns, cowards behind shields, Rocket Launcher wielders, and whippers. The combat is where I have had a lot of fun, if anyone reading this has played the Batman Arkham games you will feel comfortable here. Except this combat is far more punishing and I like that. Your reaction window for dodging is forgiving but very tight, you get more reward staying calm in a fight than spamming buttons. I prefer this better to be the Spectacular Spider-Man than a whimpy wall crawler.

    This game is a masterpiece. Before the game came out we all saw how beautiful the trailers delivered. This is one of the rarest games where they deliver their very best. Gameplay, graphics, controls, easy to learn, the music, characters, and story are all 10/10! This game is very enjoyable and never gets boring. It's like you're watching a movie throughout the entire adventure. I am glad they brought this style back from Spider-Man 2 for the PS2. That was the last Spider-Man game I enjoyed and they brought it back in HD and improved everything significantly. The details in the game are absolutely amazing and there are a lot of funny and epic moments during gameplay. I hardly ever get 100% on a game but for this game, I just had to because it was really that fun. Also, it isn't that hard to get 100% either. This game is fun for all ages, even if you are not a Spider-Man fan, it is still really enjoyable. There are times I go in my day and can't wait to play the game again every time after work. I am looking forward to the DLCs coming out soon. I highly recommend it!

    "That's Spider-Man. Black Sabbath did Iron Man." Just kidding, he's not in this game. But Avengers Tower is! Spider-Man had some great games like... 15 years ago. This is the first game since then to get good reviews and they're absolutely worth listening to. The web-swinging is great. The fighting is like an improved version of the fighting you do in the Arkham series. A lot of the crime fighting stuff DOES get repetitive as you swing around town, but if you take the time to get the bonuses from the crime fighting, you can upgrade suits and weapons, along with actual level-ups. It's also great practice for the times you have to take on fodder to get to the super-villains. I can't think of anything truly negative about the game. It's flawed, but not by anything that takes you out of the game or the excellent story. Coming back for the "City That Never Sleeps" DLC trio is an easy sell. You can beat this game and all the major side-quests in less than 30 hours if you push it. I took about 45 hours because I kept fighting crimes and exploring.

    Absolutely "amazing"! Simply "spectacular"! Spider-Man has had the most representations in video games, dating back to the Atari 2600. In large part, these have almost always been, at the very least, enjoyable, mostly very good, and in a few cases, downright innovative. And that last category is where this game falls. It doesn't just continue a tradition of Spider Man leading the way in the genre of superhero games, it continues Sony's dominance in the exclusive market that Microsoft simply cannot keep up with in terms of sheer quantity AND quality. (And I say this as an owner and gamer of both systems). At this point, if you haven't purchased and played this yet, you need to find a way to rectify that. Whether you're a gamer, a superhero fan, or both, Spider Man is arguably one of the very best games of the current generation.
