    Combat is fine. It is similar to the Arkham games, though the game's similarities end with that. Spider-Man certainly doesn't have the Metroidvania structure that inspired those titles. Instead, it borrows its formula from every open-world game you've ever played. That formula is popular for a reason, so if you're just looking for gameplay you already like with your favorite web-slinging superhero, you'll probably dig Spider-Man. Just don't expect it to test the boundaries of that formula. [1st few hours impressions]

    While the story, traversal and combat in Spider-Man all impressed, its rendition of New York City fell flat. [Impressions]

    A modern-adult take on these characters... So good. [1st 5 hours impressions]

    Playing the game and getting to experience the opening few hours of its story felt at the same time instantly familiar and completely new. [1st few hours impressions]

    Ultimately, all the ingredients seem to be here for a superior Spider-Man experience. Playing through the first two hours of Marvel's Spider-Man reminded me of the first time I played Arkham Asylum or saw Guardians of the Galaxy in the cinema. [1st 2 hours impressions]

    Marvel’s Spider-Man is shaping up to be an exhilarating ride – but it’s not without its problems. The question is, can Marvel’s Spider-Man live up to the high standard set by this year’s other big PS4 exclusive God Of War? [1st 2 hours impressions]

    My time with the game can be distilled into one short message: Be excited. Be very excited. [1st 4 hours impressions]
