Marvel's Spider-Man review
by Amun Akta


Serious now.

It's a really good game. One of the few I 100%ed. 

The combat, really damn good.
Some said that they ripped of the Arkham series.
They did xD. But if something works, use it. Spider-man and Batman have a really similar fighting style so this didn't came out as a surprise.
The impacts are heavy, and you fell the force of every hit.

Trully, the 2 big critics I have in relation to the combat is how braindead the boss fights were. Is the same logic for all of them. Get out of the way 3 times, hit them 3 times, animation repeat... 3 times.... And the stealth. Is too simple, like... Way to simple. 

The graphics surprised me.
It's incredible how well and quick the game rendered the city as you are zipping though it.

The BIG THING, the swinging.
Its fells amazing. It was a really dumb decision to make fast travel with movement mechanics this good. I never used the metro during my 2 complete playthoughs. 
The animation really helps the felling of speed and grace with Peter moves with.

Relative to story, it's a pretty standed super hero story. But the characters really sell it. From Mary Jane to Doc Oc. Really well rounded people. BTW they are pretty damn funny.

Overall, it make's you fell like spider-man.

A great Spider-Man game after a long drought.
The most important mechanic, swinging, is amazingly implemented, the story is the best Spider-Man game story yet and combat is fun enough to carry you through the game.
I mean who doesn't want to be Spider-Man.
The best Spiderman game so far.
Swinging is great, the story is very good and combat is fun enough to last through the game

really best spider man game play
Loved this game! The swinging and play was so great that the fast travel system was almost not needed as it was too much fun traversing New York! The bosses were perfect yet surprised to see so many. It is a joy to come back to!

"This game makes you feel like Spider-Man" 

But really, this game is awesome. The combat is fast and fluid, the story and characters are well realized, and this game just emphasis FUN. Some of the side content could be a little tedious to complete but other than that it's a must play for any lovers of great single player games. 9/10.

Its great, Marvel showed that they too can make a good superhero game up there with DC's Arkham franchise, now whilst they have taken strong influence by them, I'm glad they did as it works well with the web slinging and the way Spider-Man fights is shown brilliantly here.
