    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.

    Great story, characters, combat and web swinging. Not just a great game but one of the best pieces of Spider-Man media ever.

    A strong debut from Insomniac that manages to capture the essence of the web slinger that we have all come to know and love. The story isA strong debut from Insomniac that manages to capture the essence of the web slinger that we have all come to know and love. The story is superbly written with top notch performances especially from Peter Parker himself, the combat is varied if repetitive at times and the amount of nods and Easter eggs to past Spider Man iterations will have every fan busy for a long time to come.

    ok so marvels spiderman the first spiderman that did it right or so they say well yes mostly and no let me explain: insomniac did a great jobok so marvels spiderman the first spiderman that did it right or so they say well yes mostly and no let me explain: insomniac did a great job with this game the attention to detail and the amount of easter eggs and references and cameos can make every marvel geek scream out of excitement but its their first one so there are some things they did kinda bad so ill make this review short and simple no rent review lets start with the negatives

    cons-

    -firstly there are a lot of bugs like a lot and i mean that even after the day one patch there were bugs that sometimes broke my missions

    -the introducing of the new suit sucks and even at the end game when you get another even more powerful suit they introduce it really badly

    -another introducing problem they had is the gadget introducing it felt like he makes high tech gadgets out of thin air no lab to work on them no nothing

    - there are to much collectibles and collectible missions that actually made me sick like there are useless ones like collect 12 pigeons for some guy like wtf really ? im here to save you from a negative powered chinese guy and you send me to collect your pigeons

    -most of the bosses from the side missions suck which brings me to the previous con even awesome mini bosses like taskmaster ask you to complete like 12 or something challenges before you can fight them which is really cancerous if you ask me and the black cat stakeouts where you just find her base and she gives you a suit and if you wanna fight her buy the dlc because f you gimme money

    -the stealth parts with marry jane and miles are really cancerous like really why do i need to do it like 4 5 times there was like just one where you can do a silent take down with a shocker the other ones just suck

    -marry janes character especially in the first saga (there are 2 sagas in the game) is really feminist and annoying (which is not like her) like for example peter saves her from a base full with guards she gets mad and tries to prove that shes a strong woman and bull sh like that but then in the second saga peter saves her from another stealth mission she thanks him and tells him what she gathered and then motivates him to win against the bad guys (like the normal marry jane should)

    -another con and its my personal one is where the hell is everyone like im not even talking about black panther or dr strange or even the avengers (which have their establishments in the game) im talking underdogs like dare devil and luke cage why is there no cameo in the game even the slightest one that part really annoyed me

    pros

    - again the attention to detail in this game is crazy insomniac really went crazy one that part

    - you can unsub from jjj podcast and not listen to his complains

    - i said it already but again the amount of references and cameos and easter eggs just wow

    -i really liked the fact that they went with an older more experienced spiderman and didnt go all uncle ben trauma thingy

    -miles is awesome and the after ending scene was awesome plus they fixed marry janes character from an annoying feminist to a loved and cared character that supports you

    -the combat in this game does copy batman arkham series but they did change it up a bit for example if two people attack you at once you cant double counter attack like batman the whole point of the combat in this game is being agile and everywhere like spiderman

    - the parkur and the feeling of traversing threw the city is just wow you really feel like this is the perfect spiderman experience

    - another pro in my opinion is the fact that they didnt use the stereotypical villains like goblin venom and carnage they actually used the other ones that get less attention

    all in all this game is just a blast to play and i personally finished it 100% so my final score to this game is a 810 go buy it its the only spiderman game that did it right since web of shadows i think XD
