This is the most addicting game I've ever played, in that when I'm swinging around New York deciding what to do next, I literally. Can't. Stop. Swinging. I'll make it to my marker and my brain wants to stop but my fingers just won't allow it, I need to be swinging around this city, web-zipping to the top of water towers, dive bombing off the tallest skyscraper I can find in the vicinity, and running along the sides of buildings and quickly jumping between one and another in a slim alleyway. If Insomniac put out this game with nothing to do in the world except swinging around endlessly, I would have been very very satisfied. Lucky for us they populated the world with heaps of crimes to stop, pigeons to round up, and landmarks to take selfies in front of AND a fully-realized fantastic new Spider-Man story with a great Doc Ock origin story. Insomniacs' Peter Parker is the definitive one (I still love you Tobey Maguire, I love you so much...) and every moment he was talking I was into it. The voice acting is so good and the facial animations are incredible, mixing to make a mesmerizing, addicting, brand new Spider-Man story. And the late-game world switch up when you suddenly get all new crimes everywhere and new bases to take down and a beautiful terrifying broken New York to swing around?? God Insomniac, the world doesn't deserve this. My only complaints with the game are it's length, I platinumed the whole thing in less than 40 hours (my first platinum ever mind you, thank you Insomniac for making this pretty damn achievable), and how easy it is on normal difficulty. I never had issues with any boss fights and hardly any issues with bases, apart from the Sable ones which were actually a good challenge. I know I could have just upped the difficulty, and I will on my next playthrough, but I feel like "normal" difficulty should challenge the player a bit more. Apart from that Insomniac knocked this one out of the park.
