About

Marvel's Spider-Man offers the player to take on the role of the most famous Marvel superhero.

Plot

The game introduces Spider-Man as an already experienced superhero. By the time the game begins, Peter has captured the infamous Kingpin as well as several other supervillains. Now, a gang that goes by the name of Demons poses a new danger to New York. Meanwhile, Peter is working for the scientist Otto Octavius, who didn't yet become Dr. Octopus, on their science project. Throughout the game, Spidey has to deal with multiple enemies, such as Norman Osbourne, Electro, Vulture, Rhino and Kingpin, among others.

Gameplay

The player controls Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, from the third person view. There are also sections of the game in which the player controls other protagonists, namely Mary Jane and Miles Morales. The game is set in a 3D environment that is modeled after New York City. The player can travel the city using web slings, running, jumping, and crawling the walls. The setting includes numerous high-rise buildings designed specifically for Spider-Man's movements.

As the player progresses, he or she unlocks new suits that grant Spider-Man new abilities, such as additional attacks or enhanced Spider-Sense. The abilities are not tied to the suits, however, and the player can use the suit of his or her choice without losing the ability. The combat system is similar to that in Batman: Arkham, in that Spider-Man fights many opponents in hand-to-hand combat but avoids killing them.

      Marvel's Spider-Man reviews and comments

      9/10
      «Blew my mind»

      What a brilliant game, you can see the love insomniac has for the IP when you play this gem.
      Spiderman PS4 is the first superhero game I had played in a while and suffice to say it was quite a treat.
      I actually think the story in this game blows away any spiderman films, it's honestly that good.
      New York is brilliantly designed and fun to mess around in. THE WEB SWINGING is a joy, I'm so glad they nailed that. 
      Gameplay is good, I wasn't expecting anything super deep but it was surprisingly fun to play, the dodge slow down kinda reminded me of bayonetta sometimes. Once you have all your gadgets equipped and are familiar with the game, the combat becomes surprisingly deep, you can use the environment as a source of attack and defence, the gadgets can be used together to pull of some cool combos and you truly feel like spiderman. Upgrades are well implemented and useful, and are unlocked steadily throughout the game. There are a variety of suits available and more you unlock during the game, no microtransaction bs here. The art design suits the game so well and the graphics are stellar. Voice acting is brilliant and witty. I absolutely adored J Jonah Jamesons bits in this game, the VA is so good and his dialogue is so hilarious in its absurdity. The atmosphere is brilliant throughout and keeps you on your toes.

      In terms of criticism
      Boss fights are more style than substance, which tbh I feel suits the game, but if you were hoping for some challenge here there isn't one really, unless you ramp up the difficulty to the highest setting and even then...
      I enjoyed all of the boss fights, even though they weren't the greatest in terms of game play, the story and atmosphere around the bosses was very well done. Fighting electro and vulture together was really fun, the scorpion boss fight was really interesting and the final fight with Doc Ock was a spectacle. Normally I do prefer challenging games but this game has a certain charm that really takes me back to ps2 days.
      Stealth sections with MJ can get quite tiresome, same with miles but i guess they're a nice break from the action. 
      Some of the side quests can get quite repetitive and there's not much variety, however there's plenty to keep you busy, and because i enjoyed the combat so much and swinging through NY i really didn't care
      DLC is nothing special but if you enjoyed the base game it's more of the good stuff with some extra challenge, so why not eh?

      8/10

      Best Spider-man game in history

      Insomniac has created a masterclass in movement and video game cinematography. Fighting is just badass and running around New York City is a blast to see Marvel Easter eggs all over. The story is rich and engaging, but good lord the MJ and Miles are so boring and make me want to toss my PS4 into a ditch.
      gott gameplay en half assed saga

      So far as Spider-Man games go, Spider-Man 2 (based on Sam Raimi’s film of the same name) is generally hailed as being one of if not THE best Spider-man game, and arguably superhero video game. The game did a lot of things right and at the end of the day, while it is an adaptation or tie in to the film, it still stands on its own feet as a solid narrative and fun gameplay experience. Insomniac has presented a challenger to the title of “Best Spider-Man game ever” with this game. The game isn’t an origin story, instead the game takes a lot of inspiration from the Batman Arkham series and really drops the player into a familiar universe that is already fleshed out and can be further understood by prior comic lore, but much like the Arkham games this game does withhold major villains and story beats and presents them in the game in a fresh and new way that we haven’t necessarily seen before. The story starts of f with a Peter Parker and Spider-Man that is a little older, he’s graduated high school and college and is trying to balance his life amidst a changing world. The story begins when Spider-Man successfully takes down Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of crime. But Fisk leaves behind a power vaccum that other criminals, both normal and super powered seek to fill. The story continues to escalate as things get personal and frantic for Peter and later New York. This is a fantastic game narratively and how the gameplay and rising stakes and conditions are reflected across the city both physically and visually as well as in the writing and story. There are fantastic performances from all of the actors and the writers create new spins and twists on so many of these characters and even faced some struggles with Marvel on some story decisions. But at the end of the day, I admire that these developers were given a voice and Marvel ultimately respected that voice and allowed them to make the game they wanted to make. I feel that in art and entertainment, the big studios and executives tend to stifle creativity just for the sake of spectacle and appeasing fans. The game takes a lot of inspiration from the Batman Arkham games and this is reflected in how they approach their story, but also in the gameplay. The gameplay is so smooth and beautiful to command and behold. Visually the game is wonderful with amazing graphics and wonderful designs, I would say that Spider-Man hasn’t looked better in a video game. It is a free roam game so there are plenty of familiar free roam mechanics like side missions and collectibles. But with the places that this story goes to and with the scale and scope of this story and game, I worry about how and where Insomniac can keep taking this series to maintain an air of freshness and to ensure that they don’t repeat what they have already done. The combat , acrobatics and web swinging is probably the best in ANY Spider-Man game. There are a variety of villains and supervillains who keep you on your toes as you go toe to toe with bosses and various grunts. The world feels so dynamic and active, much like the Batman Arkham games, and is even impacted by the story, much like the Batman Arkham games. I will say that the AI is kind of lacking. When you have enemies that shoot RPGS and they shoot them at point blank range at you……that becomes annoying and ridiculous after the first time. Hopefully, AI will improve going forward but I hope that it definitely improves in this game. Overall, Spider-Man hopefully is a wake-up call to Disney-Marvel. They have always had excellent material to make video games with and have made amazing video games in the past (X-Men Legends, X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Spider-Man Edge of Time, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Spider-Man 2). Stop marrying your comics and your video games/movies. Focus on good narratives and developers and create quality content that stands on its own. Because I guarantee that this game will be looked at by so many people as inspiration for future comic book video games and future Spider-Man stories. Hands down the best super hero video game since Batman Arkham City.

      Rating: 4.5/5
