    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a decent sandbox-based action game, with plenty of missions, nice ideas and different situations to deal with, but it still lacks the polishing and the direction needed to be a great tie-in, like the Batman games.
  2. Seems like Beenox tried to catch up with the movie. But this is the main reason why they messed up. Web throwing dynamics are better than ever. But as a whole, the game lacks on story aspects, AI and graphical optimization.

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is serviceable, and serviceable is as good as it gets. Competent, with admirable attempts at original storytelling, this movie tie-in is the perfect example of a middle-ground title.

    Beenox's new effort in the Spider-Man franchise lacks in charm and imagination.

    Not necessarily a bad superhero game, just one we’ve seen countless times before. The web-swinging, goon-bashing, crime-fighting fundamentals simply aren't fun.

    This formula was a blast back in 2004, but history has been repeating itself for a decade. Unfortunately, Spider-Man’s open-world shtick has been overplayed so many times that his puns look fresh by comparison.

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 reminds of a time when ‘based on a movie’ was the quickest way to describe and berate a game in the same sentence.

Don't have a crappy PCNot quite sure people are saying the graphics in the game are bad. I have mine maxed out and it looks really great. Don't have a crappy PC with the graphics turns on low and it won't look like crap. The controls are easy to use on a PC, but I am a PC Gamer, not a console newb. The game itself does require more than just one button mashing like one guy said, you do have to dodge, use your webs, etc to keep yourself from getting killed. If you even try to button mash in this game you'll get killed easily. The boss fights are eh... too quick. The story line is lacking a bit in this game compared to the first Amazing Spider-Man. The suits do offer different stat changes, not sure what the other guy was talking about. Anyways, it is a fun game if you want to kill time for a bit. Does require a pretty good gaming PC to run it, so don't try to run it on a dual core then complain cause you can't run the graphics very high. Expand

    The game is a fun sequel that has so many cool villains to fight and a action packed story. The gameplay is the same as the first which is good.

    Not a bad continuation of the first part, it was nice to see Kraven, fly around the city. collecting and saving everything possible, a Wall as the seller of comics and in General this hub where it is possible to consider different pieces. The battle system has become less, there is no such a juicy combo as the first, but it is not necessary to climb on the house of teenage mutant ninja turtles.
    Неплохое продолжение первой части, приятно было увидеть Крэйвена, полетать по городу. собирая и спасая все возможное, Стена в роли продавца комиксов и целом данный хаб, где можно рассмотреть разные штуки. Боевая система стала меньше, нет таких сочных комбо как в первой, зато не нужно больше лазить по дому черепашек ниндзя.

For starters the combat is way too straightforward and much more limited than the Arkham series, secondly we have the terrible story which never knows wich plot to develop properly. And then we have all of the potentially great ideas wasted, for example the hero/menace mechanic, choosing optional topics of conversation and the upgrade system. The bosses are very simple and quite boring and the hub world is almost completely unnecessary. But despite of all of this, i did find some positives: the web swinging is great and probably the best so far, spiderman is very acrobatic which makes the web swinging even more fun, and lastly i love that you can view comics in a comic book store owned by Stan Lee. But overall, sadly this game is not good, and only the biggest fans of spiderman will find it enjoyable, quite disappointing indeed. Expand

Thanks to the unstable framerate this game is really hard to play. Doesn't matter on which settings I play, it just doesn't get any better.

    I know the framerate issues isn't a problem with my PC (Maybe some unsupported hardware), but I can play other good looking games like Battlefield 4 on normal settings with 60fps, so I ask myself why not The Amazing Spider-man 2 on very low. Even on high the game doesn't really look much better than The Amazing Spider-man 1 and that game ran fine on my system.

    The controls aren't really good, but that could be because of the low FPS, or they're just really bad.

    I already supplied a relatively in-depth analysis of this game, but it's simply no good.

    Everything was relatively acceptable minus the temperamental controls, the somewhat shoddy animation work with characters when speaking....but this stupid business with the Task Force and the "Hero" meter, is simply not acceptable.

    If you get this game, and I seriously pray you don't, you will find that if that Hero meter points to anything close to the first red bar, you will get hounded constantly by Task Force machines whilst trying to swing around NYC. I have never in my life played such a terribly unenjoyable "open-city" game - and this really does the Spider-man franchise NO favours whatsoever.
