That good news aside, this is without a doubt one of the best super hero games I've played. This game borrows heavily from Batman from Rocksteady, but to great effect. This has many moments where you feel like you're playing Spiderman with a Batman: Arkham City Template underneath. In an early mission, it even has a Correctional Prison Facility with crazy Asylum inmates. Rather than write a bunch of paragraphs to filter through, I'll save you some time reading and just mention some key highlights below:
-Controls are buttery smooth and responsive with plenty of freedom to swing, sprint up walls, evade, leap, freefall and more. Incredible job. No twitchy on foot as in Spiderman 2.
-The behind the shoulder camera view is excellent and for the first time in an open city Spiderman game, makes you feel like Spiderman, seeing things from a close but comfortable 3PV, increasing the intensity and the sense of "Being there", in the game compared to previous efforts where Spiderman was a tiny character onscreen. Think of the views from Batman Arkham City/Asylum.
-Fights are modeled directly after Rocksteady's Batman Games and are a blast because of it. Spidy is no push over with some amazing martial arts acrobatic fighting skills. Fast and action packed.
-The swinging skills are fast and fluid. Spidy's a pro from the start.
-Plenty of Batman-like upgrades for Spidy's skills to upgrade.
-Crackdown like leaping/jumping fun, collecting comics instead of orbs.
-Plenty of major villains with clever boss battles.
-Reasonable representation of NYC's Manhattan.Read more ›
There have been a lot of reviews that are extremely good and those that are extremely bad; I feel that this game is above average. This is no skyrim or arkham asylum. However, as a spidey fan, im finding many enjoyable elements of the game.
*Web swinging is amazing! As you swing, the environment has a
cool, motion blur effect that adds an organic feel to the swinging.
*Climbing/perch - As you're web climbing, you can press your back against
the climbing surface, which is useful for taking pics, stealth take downs, etc.
*Web-Rush - Stylized version of "zip-lining" (for those who are familiar with
the previous games.) Difference is: you have the option of choosing where u
would like to zip-line as time freezes, then slowly begins to move again.
--Production value (Style)
*Story -- Takes place after the events that occured in the movie. Story is well done (by comic book
standards) again, I wouldnt compare it to the story in games like Metal Gear,
but that doesnt mean its a horrible story. Spider-man faces many ethical
challenges (within the script) that makes the story very interesting. There are some parts where i
expected the story (or scene) to be predictable, then something unexpected
would happen. Theres even an official OSCORP commercial with footage of real people that slowly transitions to computer animation.Read more ›
Graphics - Not spectacular. The framerate is fine. The environments look good. Spider-Man looks real. Some character details look bad, but not to the point where you can't stand it. At least they don't look cartoonish. 90/100(A-)
Gameplay - The game plays well. It's an open world game. The combat is better than ever and the web swinging and camera makes me feel like I'm Spider-Man. You get to use special moves and upgrade Spider-Man. Web crawling is good. Throughout the city you'll see petty crimes going on that where you can choose to take action. There's this feature called Web Rush, where you can just swing fast to different areas by pressing the R1 button or holding it to slow down time and do attacks. There's also web retreat so you can get out the way when you're in trouble by pressing the L1 button. You can also take photos by pressing L2. You'll feel a lot of vibration through your controller in this game. You'll encounter a lot of action. You also get to play as Stan Lee with the Stan Lee Adventure Pack. 100/100(A+)
Multiplayer - No multiplayer.Read more ›
