    Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is a grade-A game through and through, and as long as this release hasn’t changed anything (it hasn’t), it will remain that way.

    Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is the definitive version of the best Spider-Man game so far.

    Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered on PC is still the fantastic experience that it was on PS4, but now with a little bit of extra polish and shine from a graphical standpoint. If you haven't played this game, jump in, and if you played it on the PS4/PS5 it might just be time to get swinging once more.

    Insomniac’s Spider-Man: Remastered for the PC is the superior version of the game when compared to its previous platforms. It brings the best visuals, and the most compatibility options, allows you to play this with a DualSense and brings all the nifty content that you want to make this a long adventure. The optimization features of this game on the PC are crazy good, as well as allowing you to play the game how you want to play it. The PC elitist out there will be thrilled.

    One of the most beloved superheroes in history is now remastered this time for PC gamers. Marvel's Spider-Man does not disappoint and remains a great experience since 2018.

    A fully complete, accessible version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered that will run on most systems, is at home on the portable Steam Deck, and feels fresh and brilliant even four years after release.

    The port has some bugs it needs ironing out prior to its release, but other than that, we're looking at a solid, well put up port for an amazing game that PC owners that didn't have a PlayStation console yet, should definitely try.

    Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered on PC is an excellent way to live or relive one of the best console classics of last years, a real "definitive version" that can push the game to unprecedented graphical heights.

    Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered is a fantastic game full of classic Spider-Man charm, with fantastic movement and smooth combat that emphasizes the nature of the web-head. With a compelling story and good character moments, this reviewer is going to be very much looking forward to Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales when it comes to Steam, and Marvel's Spider-Man 2 when it finally releases. Here's hoping it will be soon.

    Spider-Man is a fantastic game. One of the highlights of the last generation of console games and this PC version will certainly hit the spot for those that missed it. A couple of little porting issues stop it from being the best version of the game but I expect that to change quickly and once it does, this will be the premium version of the game.

    The port of Spider-Man Remastered on PC exemplarily transfers Spidey's story from the world of PlayStation to the world of PC, while at the same time giving us a multitude of settings and options to customize this experience to our needs.

    Four years after the PS4 version, Spider-Man Remastered is still fun to play on PC. Graphically, the game is still nice and the game is a real living advertisement for raytracing. So if you ever missed this game on PlayStation, you no longer have any reason to deprive yourself.

    As a person who played all the Spider-Man games since Sega Genesis’ Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin, Insomniac’s version of the New-York city’s wall crawler is the best Spider-Man game ever released. The game holds up pretty well both in visuals and gameplay mechanics. Though there are some drawbacks and shortcomings, they are not game-breaking or in any way stop the players from enjoying the title. To make a long story short, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is a diamond in the rough.

    For PC gamers who are fans of everything Marvel, or at least the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, this PC port of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is pretty much essential. It’s as fun becoming Spider-Man today as it was back in 2018, with his web-slinging antics wonderfully brought to life. Factor in the enhanced performance and visuals, as well as the wealth of content, and you have one of the best superhero games ever made.

    Even four years after its original release, Insomniac's Spider-Man is a great action game with an ideal scope, a fun combat system and phenomenally mastered web swinging. On PC, the game arrives in great shape and, alongside Death Stranding, Horizon and God of War, it does honor to the original exclusives from Sony.

    Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC is the most complete version, graphically and feature-wise, for one of the best super-hero games ever, if not the best.

    Exciting story, delightful gameplay, gorgeous open world: Spider-Man is not only a dream come true for Marvel fans.

    Spider-Man is one of the best superhero games of all time with some of the best and most satisfying movement-systems ever seen in an open world title. While most of the side stuff consists of your typical Ubisoft-style fetch-quests, this movement makes even those enjoyable. Throw on a very fluid and enjoyable combat system along with a well paced story and you've got yourself a game that hasn't lost much of its luster since releasing in 2018. The new PC post is very solid with a wide array of options, impressive raytracing and support for three different upscaling systems, enabling good performance across many configurations. The only downside is having to pay full price for it, although if you've never played Spider-Man, the PC version is worth the asking price.

    If you are totally new to this PC release and were simply waiting for PlayStation to bring it over to PC, you'll have a blast experiencing Spider-Man's story that rivals his big-picture adaptations and shouldn't have many issues at all, hardware permitting. Though Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered did fall victim to the occasional crash or two as well as some buggy features, those have largely been rectified by continued pre-release updates. For the returning web-swingers, if you're like me, you may find that the time away from the game since release was enough to make it feel just new enough again to justify seeing what Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered looks like running on this platform.

    Nixxes has done a fantastic job bringing this fantastic game to PC, and even if there still are a few rough edges left to polish, it’s a great version for more people to enjoy Insomniac’s game.

    Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered remains an excellent superhero adventure game, but the move to PC elevates it as the best version of the adventure thus far, mainly thanks to the various available graphical options. From full native 4K with a beefier ray tracing implementation to lots of tweakable graphical options, it looks gorgeous and a little better than the PS5 iteration. If you already have the console version, then there's not too much reason to dip into this adventure again, but for those experiencing the title for the first time, Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is a perfect way to dive into the adventure and get yourselves ready for Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which arrives in a few months.

    Much to the chagrin of some extreme fanboys, who incomprehensibly defend the total and eternal exclusivity of PlayStation Studios' games, Sony seems to have other ideas. And I'm glad that's the case, because a game like Spider Man Remastered deserves to be played by all video game enthusiasts, whether they are Spidey fans or not. Who knows, maybe they will be finally convinced.

    Marvel’s Spider-Man continues to be one of the best superhero video games released in the last decade, thanks in no small part to Yuri Lowenthal’s committed and passionate performance as Peter Parker, and the overall lighthearted tone that keeps players feeling good over the course of its 20-hour runtime. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend that you run out and buy it if you’ve already played the base game at launch, but if you’re looking for an excuse to jump back in and take a crack at all the DLC missions that have released since then, you can’t go wrong here.

    Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is absolutely delightful. The game is still excellent four years down the line, and those who weren't able to play the PS4 release (or the PS5 remaster) will find this a suitable fit to finally get to play the title. It's a fantastic game - and PC player's new to the title won't have to get used to that Peter Parker character model swap either.

    Nixxes has done a great job adding some PC centric features for Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered and it runs well if you have a good machine. The reflections really add to the visuals and the gameplay is tight. There are a few bugs here and there and DLSS isn't working correctly. Get this on the PC if you haven't played it.

    Spider-Man Remastered is playable with a keyboard and mouse, too, now, but it's still best enjoyed with a controller. Full support is offered for all controllers that make use of Steam's API, with the correct button-mapping showing up in-game for Xbox and Sony DualSense controllers alike. The DualSense benefits from the work done on the PS5 version to include more accurate haptic and adaptive trigger support, but like all other games that utilize these features, you'll have to use the DualSense wired directly to your PC for them to work. Still, it's nice to feel the gentle pressure of the trigger that is applied at the apex of a swing, or the satisfying pitter-patter of rain on a gloomy day, so it's worth the hassle if you have a DualSense available.

    With the Spider-Man Remastered PC version, gamers are getting the smoothest edition of the web-slinger complete with a comprehensive suite of graphical settings. This is exactly what we need from PlayStation games making their way to PC!

    The arrival of Marvel’s Spider-Man on PC brings one of PlayStation’s signature stars to a new platform. It looks fantastic, plays well across a variety of setups, and is one of the best games of the last five years. It is, in other words, essential, though you might want to wait for it to go on sale.

    Regardless of where users’ settings might land, Spider-Man Remastered is still one of Sony’s best games, of any generation. Insomniac Games crafted an experience that is thrilling even when Spider-Man is just swinging through the city, but the combat and story add fun layers that keep it engaging throughout. Not to mention, this PC version includes the Miles Morales DLC that adds new layers to the combat and has an equally compelling narrative. So while mileage may vary in terms of how much visual fidelity a system can offer the game, Spider-Man Remastered is still well worth playing and the PC version is the best looking version. Over time performance should get even better, but right now the game is still a must-play.
  32. Aug 10, 2022

    The best part of the experience is just how much you feel connected to the story and becoming Spider-Man. Even when you factor in open-world design which is a mostly by-the-numbers checklist of things to collect and discover, the world-building and presentation are next-level.

    If you haven’t already heard about Marvel’s Spider-Man, it’s a great game, and the new PC release is basically the best way to play it. Alongside great performance, the PC version also supports some niche PC options, including Steam Controllers, and the Steam Deck verification means that it can also run on Linux.

    Despite these mild niggles, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered remains a triumph of AAA video gaming. From the endlessly satisfying web-swinging to the clever RPG elements, from the rich cast of characters to the hard-hitting main story, this is one of the best games I’ve ever played.

    Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered it's a wonderful open world adventure and this port doesn't change that. What it changes is that you'll need a powerful PC to run it properly, with ray-tracing and all the visual effects... and even with an RTX 3080 you won't run it at constant 4K y 60fps at launch.

    Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for PC misses out on a few quality-of-life changes, but this definitive port blows the PS5 version away with limitless customization on graphics, controls and performance tuning.

    Marvel's Spider-Man was already a solid, entertaining, action-packed game with enough storylines to capture your imagination on PS4. The same thing happens with the PC version, but here you will have access to a series of graphic customization options that are not available on PS5. The experience is greatly improved thanks to the diversity of resolutions, making the game visually stunning and an experience that no one should miss.

    Marvel's Spider-Man is beyond doubt in quality, as it has achieved tremendous sales. While the main topics with this remaster are optimization and graphics scalability, the both were satisfyingly good in the review build. Fully functional DualSense features were cherry on top. Even though there were some glitches out there, luckily they don't hurt the experience of the game.

    Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered has a satisfying upgrade for the PC platform, and the evolved graphics of the game become more realistic. The adaptation for the DualSense controller has reached a stunning level, with sensitively haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that make the gameplay experience even better. Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is still one of the best superhero games and also a must-play for Spider-Man fans.

    Spider-Man Remastered perfectly blends open-world action and stealth mechanics with complex fighting controls to create a superhero experience that will stick with you. A few patches and bug fixes and this game will be truly spectacular.

    Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered swings onto the PC platform with grace. Its pricing is a little high, and its optimisation needs a little work but the customisation options encroach on setting a new standard for the PC gaming industry.

    Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered on PC is a good, if imperfect, port: it runs well on a wide variety of configurations, even the Steam Deck, but quickly becomes greedy when you want to activate ray-tracing . The latter also remains unconvincing, with unpleasant visual artifacts. On the other hand, we greatly appreciate the compatibility with 21:9 screens, which brings a real plus, as well as the possibility of using the Duel Sense to its full potential. That being said, even if you have the PC that is fine, you have no interest in taking this version if you already have it on PS5, or even on PS4. For others, it's now or never to discover an excellent Marvel game and one of the best adaptations of the adventures of Spider-Man.

    Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is one of the best superhero games of its generation, and the move to PC gives it an arsenal of new settings to play with. While the frame rate can fluctuate a bit, the fact that it hits the marks advertised and even exceeds them is good news for everyone that owns a computer and is worried they might fall short. Ray tracing is a dream, and while expensive shows the prowess of Insomniac and Nixxes. Even better, this game is available on the go, Steam Deck ready at launch. Just being obtainable would be enough for most, but the above and beyond approach taken in this project is one Peter Parker himself would look at and smile.

    One of the best Spider-Man games ever made, where the production quality truly makes a difference, has finally arrived to PC. It's such a high quality port that I'd recommend in a heartbeat.
  47. The PC version of Spider-Man has broken the chains of an already successful game. The game, released in 2018, manages to stay up to date with its PC features.

    Marvel's Spider-Man is a spectacular and engaging action game, characterized by a perhaps derivative but solid and fun gameplay, an excellent rendering of web swinging, wonderful graphics and many characters and surprises. However, right now the PC version is not as well optimized as we hoped it would be.
  49. Aug 10, 2022

    With fantastic graphics and, ahem, spectacular gameplay, this is the best Spider-Man game ever. The performance isn't quite what I'd hoped, and some of the contrivances regarding enemy types get on my nerves, but this is a game that every Spidey fan needs to play.

    When I think about Marvel’s Spider-Man, my mind keeps returning to a moment early on in the game, where Peter gives Miles Morales a couple of pointers about how to fight well. The pair exchange jokes, look out for each other, and there’s the inception of a real bond there that carries through the rest of the game. This is at the core of Spider-Man’s heart; how well the character warms to the people of New York City. Insomniac Games’ understanding of the source material is truly what makes it shine.
  51. Aug 10, 2022

    Bottom line, just about anyone with a relatively recent PC and GPU can find a performance and graphics sweet spot. When it comes to options, this port was done right. For anyone who missed it on PlayStation 4, or doesn’t have a PS5, the PC Remastered edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man is essential gaming. PS5 players who already own the Remastered Edition won’t get anything new. At launch, Marvel’s Spider-Man was a great game with some minor flaws. It still is. While I wish the PC version had just a little something extra, it’s hard not to recommend it.
  52. 80
    Spider-Man Remastered is another superb PC port from the PlayStation catalogue. Its combat and traversal systems flawlessly capture the feeling of playing as Spider-Man, but it does become somewhat repetitive quicker than you’d expect. Graphically, the game looks absolutely stunning, especially when utilising the RTX options. And while the audio design is remarkably well crafted, the games soundtrack does suffer from being unmemorable. Overall though, Spider-Man Remastered is massively entertaining. If you’re a fan of the Webhead, the MCU, or the Arkham games series, then this is a title worthy of checking out.

    There's no way to have a bad time with Spider-Man Remastered. It's succeeds better in gameplay than in narrative, and it's a pleasure to come back to it, encountering a wide spectrum of controls and a great experience, which isn't perfect, but it doesn't have to be.

    Four years later swinging across the city is still an awesome experience and combat inspired by the Batman series remains fun. However, today I was more annoyed by numerous and tedious Ubi game-like side activities, some of which are necessary to upgrade Spidey. The PC version looks great with graphical settings maxed out on a powerful machine, but I came across some minor technical issues.

    Marvel’s Spider-Man is a big, beautiful rehash of very familiar Spider-Man stories, which makes it feel like a bit of an imitation in the end. An exceptional imitation to be sure, but it could have been so much more.
  57. Aug 10, 2022
    80
    Overall, Marvel Spider-man is a decent game on PC as well as a decent port. It offers a typical Spider-man story with quality cutscenes, good gameplay, a large city with many side activities, as well as many equipment upgrades. Plus three additional DLCs will further expand the game.

    This is an excellent PC port with Steam Deck support that elevates to it to a must-own for anyone with Valve’s portable. While Sony may never make a PlayStation Vita 2, if its support of the Steam Deck continues as more and more PlayStation exclusives migrate to PC, it’ll soon feel like the next-generation Sony handheld many of us have always wanted.

    Highly recommended on high-end gaming PCs. Everyone else should wait for day-one impressions—or take the plunge for roughly one hour, then use Steam's built-in refund service in the event that early performance is as bad for you as it was for us.
  2. Aug 10, 2022
    A lot of us have been recommending this game for almost four years now, and with the slick visual upgrade, it's even easier to vouch for.
  3. Aug 10, 2022
    You’ll need a powerful enough rig to get the best of the best visually speaking—4K 60fps with ray tracing set to max will have to wait for a patch—but even at lower tiers the game looks amazing. [Impressions]
  4. Aug 10, 2022
    Although its crisp new coat of paint is an undeniable upgrade, Marvel’s Spider-Man can’t help but show its age. It reminds me of Brooklyn Nine-Nine — cute, funny, and ultimately propagating a series of comfortable lies about the NYPD. It’s why, as I play, I’ve spent so much more time on my Steam Deck doing chores around the city, rather than advancing the main story.
  5. The existence of Spider-Man: Miles Morales is kind of shame in the context of this review. Marvel's Spider-Man is a great game, and this version comes packaged with all the extras. Were it not for the existence of Miles Morales, I'd have no qualms recommending you get this Spider-Man right now. But I am cursed with the knowledge that Miles Morales exists, is a bit tighter, cleaner, and more dynamic, and is coming to PC very soon. I don't think you'd regret getting Marvel's Spider-Man - it is, I must emphasise again, a quality game - but, look. If you can only get one.

    Game itself is fantastic, easily best Spider-Man game ever made. Story, graphics, voice acting, open-world design- everything is just top tier for a Spider-Man game. I would highly recommend this, if you have ever cared about Spider-Man. Swinging around the city feels so smooth even with Keyboard+Mouse. I was worried how these controls work on Keyboard and Mouse, and i have to say, surprisingly well. There are lots of different moves and buttons, so it might take like few minutes to learn everything, but after that it is great experience. Also, for PC, easily one of the best releases in 2022. I guess now its time to wait for Last of Us Remake and Uncharted 4 PC versions!

    Thank you Sony!
