I just got the game today. I must say that if I could do it over, I might have waited to play it until after seeing the movie. I'm only a couple levels into it, which took a couple of hours, and I now know some major plot points to the movie. If you want the movie to be more exciting, hold off on this until you see it. There are many spoilers. So, besides that, here are my main points about the game.
First, the pros:
1. I feel like Spider-man. I've played Spider-man 1, 2, 3, Ultimate Spider-man, and Spider-man: Web of Shadows. So far, The Amazing Spider-man captures the feeling that you really are Spider-man. You can move around the city with amazing speed. The animations of Spidey swinging around are great. The new Web-Rush feature is really cool too. You even go to Peter's apartment where you select portions of the room for level selection, story updates, and costumes (yes, you can eventually get the Sam Raimi Spider-man costume).
2. The controls are easy. Even though the combat gets somewhat challenging, the controls overall are really easy to remember. The controls are not a distracting factor.
3. The game is very story-driven. The game has a fairly interesting story so far, which I thought seemed to be lacking in other games. The voices are okay: they're not done by the movie's cast, but it's still good.
4. Swinging is fun. The animations of Spider-man jumping, diving, swinging, and wall-running are very well done. I can feel the sense of speed and energy when moving through the city.

Should you play it?
Yes - if you're a Spider-Man fan.
I can't recommend this game for everyone, but for those who enjoy the wall-crawler or Spidey games in general, this is a real treat for you. the Open ended city is yours to explore again and it couldn't feel better (I acknowledge most people will complain how the webs don't stick to buildings, but you can always choose to play the game restricting yourself to swing off of ONLY nearby buildings.. until you give in and enjoy breaking the laws of physics for yourself). The indoor levels feel reminiscent to the PS1 Spider-Man games, being all sneaky-like and crawling on the ceilings always fun when not fighting the camera.
Is it better than Spider-Man 2?
That's a big ole MAYBE, but I think it's unfair to compare this game to that one. They're the same in many aspects, but also different games in their own respectful ways. To me, each one has what the other doesn't and that's not really a bad thing to me.
Fighting feels like Batman Arkham series?
Having played both titles now, Spider-man does borrow a few mechanics from the Gotham Knight, but that's not to say there's an identity crisis here; Spidey makes full use of his webs and acrobatics to show off his agility and such which always have that flare you want. There's also the stealth approach of dispatching your enemies which again, reminds of batman to a degree, except Batman can't stick to ceilings. The only gripe with me on this is that the fighting in general feels lacking in polish, but due to time limits on having to release the game on time with the movie, it's understandable why it is so.
Here's the kicker.Read more ›
The open world nature of Spiderman means you can go pretty much anywhere and with little to no pop in from buildings and textures it handles the vertical perspectives well.
It is easy to get a hang of moving Spidey around but takes some practice to use his more advanced abilities to get where you want to go quickly.
The comic book scraps are a great addition, collecting all the scraps opens the comic for you to read in the front end including the first Spiderman appearance. Better than a lot of collection items in games which don't really contribute to anything other than an achievement.
The cut scene close ups of characters leave a bit to be desired and aren't up there with the current releases focusing on realism. The models look dated and clunky but get the job done of telling their story.
The controls can be one of the more frustrating things about the game, trying to pinpoint your landing and overshooting it only to web sling back past where you want to land.
It is a little bit repetitive, go complete an objective, go back to your apartment, go complete next objective, go back to your apartment etc. All while collecting comic book scraps.
