    Spider-Man is a splendidly tuned action game with a stunning story, great action and gameplay mechanisms that won’t bore you for a moment. You should not miss out on this trip among comic heroes. It's a bomb! [Issue#289]

    Spider-Man exceeded my expectations in every single way. It has its low points, but they are so minor, they become insignificant in the face of its many positive points. Spider-Man is the PS4's second system seller in 2018.

    The game not only fulfills what it promised, but it gives us an original story worthy of a Marvel movie.

    Spider-Man is probably Insomniac’s best game, and the best Spider-Man game to date. A great adventure everyone can enjoy and fans of the superhero will love.

    The Wall Crawler’s open world doesn’t consistently deliver the thrilling moments of its main campaign, but the foundation laid here is undoubtedly a spectacular one.

    In terms of story-telling and direction this might as well be an addition to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe with its high production values. But as soon as you stray away from the main plot, you’ll land in an open world that is mostly beautiful to look at, but where some positive elements meet quite a few that are only average at best. Nonetheless a great superhero romp throughout.

    This game shows tremendous love for all things Spider-Man, and the ending packs a punch he would be proud of. But Insomniac relies too much on its hero to elevate the world built around him, with the result that the game wears thin some time before its powerful conclusion.

    You can feel the love Insomniac put into this game, and it goes a long way.

Очень классный геймплей и неплохой сюжет (для супергеройского произведения вообще топ). Из минусов отметил бы только слабые побочные квесты (есть интересные, но их мало), ну и стелс за МДжэй. Не сказал бы что мегаминус, но на любителя. 910. Expand

I took my time with this game and made sure I balanced story with the collectibles and side missions. I've just finished the story and got the last secret landmark as well as the platinum trophy and that's saying something because in my 8 years in owning a ps3 and ps4 I've never platinumed a game. But this game made me want to keep exploring and keep fighting and I have to say its one of the greatest games I've ever played. I was consistently entertained from beginning to end. It never felt boring or slow and the story was fantastic and emotional. It didn't need to be this good but I can safely say it's up there with the other great exclusives.

    The combat was fast and never too complicated but always a challenge and each and every gadget felt useful. Stringing combos and using gadgets at the right time was so satisfying.

    Traversing NY was a blast. A little slow at first but eventually after getting the hang of it I was swinging like the best of them. I only used the subway for the trophy. Connecting swinging with point launching and wall running was super cool and streamlined just enough.

    The story and characters were wonderful and extremely well acted. Yuri Lowenthall and Laura Bailey have outdone themselves and they are not just another Peter Parker and MJ. The supporting characters and the main villain do a great job too. The civilians are also well acted though their voices get repetitive due to only a few actors voicing them.

    It's held back from perfection by a few bugs. Nothing game breaking but distracting. I got trapped in walls at one point, sometimes enemies would get trapped and mechanics that were supposed to work just wouldn't. The controls are tight but also not perfect. They work but expect to accidentally tly target the wrong enemy or run up the wrong wall.

    This is a must play and while it achieves the greatness it advertises it misses the perfect score by a hairs breadth due to distracting bugs and control issues.

Developed by Insomniac Games (Ratchet and Clank), it's the best video game ever made featuring Stan Lee's legendary superhero. This is an open-world action title that is highly cinematic and feels inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The gameplay itself borrows much from Rocksteady's "Arkham" series. Controls are fluid, but there are many moves to memorize. Story missions are terrific and rival "Uncharted" when it comes to movie-like scripted events. Graphically, "Spider-Man" is gorgeous and very colorful . The framerate never buckles as you glide through the Big Apple performing all sorts of aerial acrobatics. Side-activities are fun, but can get a little repetitive. But this is a knockout entry that fans will absolutely love. The quality is up there with Marvel's movies. My only complaint is I wish it was longer. Overall, I'd rate it with a 9 out of 10. Expand
