  • Summary: The Amazing Spider-Man, this all-new third-person action-adventure video game builds on the story of the previous game with an alternative take on the events of the upcoming movie, while also giving players an enhanced, free-roaming web-slinging experience through a greatly expanded New York City.

    Beenox didn’t reach the peak with its reboots yet – especially if you compare it to Peter Parker’s free-roaming adventures from two console generations ago. But they are on their way.

    Compared to the big budget, 3D, slow-motion CGI movies, there is no comparison. The graphics, gameplay, and voice acting is serviceable, but hardly ‘amazing’ as the title would suggest.

    From developer Beenox we expected something more than a bland, open-world Spidey game that loses almost all its interest after 5 hours.

    Spider-Man returns with the new film. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is an average game, and it's not particularly challenging. New York and notorious villains have many problems in this classic sandbox.

    The Amazing Spider-man draws too much direct inspiration from the Batman: Arkham series, implements it too unevenly to warrant much praise.

    You don’t need a Spider-sense to realise that a game with various audio glitches, gameplay crashes and overall sloppy design might not be worth your time or effort, as this Spider-Man isn’t the hero that fans need or deserve.

    Beenox deliver a buggy, messy game that misses the essence of Spider-Man by a wide margin. Here’s hoping Activision entrusts the popular licence to another developer for the inevitable sequel.

    This game is awesome. I don't know how the people gave a 7.2 for this game. I think this game is so real and I think that the creator of this is a total genius. The only problem is that the bosses are way too easy because none of them actually hurt me and I finished the game in 1 day and in 1 trial. But still one of the best games I have ever known. I usually am not used to games but now I am totally addicted. Expand

    Im struggling to understand how anyone can give this a bad review. For a start it is stunningly beautiful with a great atmosphere, very playable, with an excellent and challenging battle system. Expand

    Not even one bit as bad as they all say, but on the other hand, it is a let-down. Technically inferior to the previous game, this tried to push for something better with more ideas but lots of them just don't work. All in all one of the better Spider-Man games, better story, great villains, but needed a lot of polishing... Expand

    This game is greatly improved from its predecessor. The graphics are improved, but still need work. The swinging is the best so far. There are a couple of glitches, but nothing game breaking. The combat is still a bit of a copycat, but is still very fun. I also enjoyed the large rogues gallery of villains. However, it is a bit too harsh when it doesn't need to be, punishing the player for no reason. Overall, the game is good, but still needs work. Expand

    only 14 main missions and riddled with enemies that block super powers hindering freeplay in the city. The other side missions are mostly uninspired and take less than 30 seconds to complete and have about 5 different variants. Character customization / upgrades are all limited to skills doing more damage nothing more.
    A very poor attempt at Prototype/Infamous fails at everything it does. The PS3 version also buggy trophies not unlocking/freezes
