Marvel's Spider-Man review
by xXWoodinatorXx

Okay there are so many good things about this game and one minor negative. First the good.

The map traversal is easily the best that’s ever been done. Just swinging around the map is fun for so long. I never do collectables in games. I do challenges but not collectables because I don’t think they are fun just finding hidden areas by aimlessly walking around. But in Spider-Man because the web slinging is so damn good I found every one just so that I could swing around for a bit longer. I completed every challenge in this game except the normal street crime because it takes too long to come up. The combat and unexpected stealth aspect is so good as well. The suits are cool in concept and there are some good ones but one minor complaint is that more than half are pretty dumb. Which leads to the other side of the complaint which is that the story isn’t great and there are not enough epic boss fights. Instead it has some non spider parts that aren’t horrible but they are worse than every other part of the game. So it’s always a low point. It needed one more Boss fight at least and probably 2. The only reason that Batman Arkham Knight is better than this Spider-Man is because the story and atmosphere is much better than Spider-Man.  Everything else is pretty close. Spider-Man is absolutely a top tier game.

Final Score: A

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.
