    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 is a fantastic action game with great movement and combat and a compelling story that's only dragged down from time to time with boring missions and QTE-based boss fights.

    Marvel's Spider-Man does what a lot of good art does, which is examine techniques and concepts that work well, and then blend and refine them to create something unique to itself and possibly greater. I've made this point before: Art and artists have built on and inspired each other since the beginning of time. So yes, I've heard and seen the Spidey/Arkham hot takes, and I ended up not caring at all because at no point did I forget I was playing a Spider-Man experience. I was too busy swinging around in Manhattan, with buildings whipping by as I tailed a police pursuit, thinking about how right it all felt.

    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.

    The best spider-man game ever made since 2002 follow up movie Spider-man 2, yes better than this one. Get some time to get used to the webThe best spider-man game ever made since 2002 follow up movie Spider-man 2, yes better than this one. Get some time to get used to the web swing mechanics, but very fluid after a couple of hours. The combat quick, agile at the same time, and very satisfying when you get a finisher move. The city of New York is alive, civilian driving, celebrating when you pass next to them and doing an activity like doing yoga, dancing and even playing basketball. The music is recognizable, but with the own twist of the composer from insomniac. The graphics are smooth and beautiful nothing wrong to say about that. Insomniac just did the Holy Grail of the superhero genre of game. The storytelling of resistance, the gameplay of sunset overdrive and the humour of Ratchet and Clank have prepared Insomniac games to create the greatest Spider-Man game. It an absolute buy for every fan of the web-swinger and for every ps4 owner. (sorry Xbox players)
    Final word: play this game you won't regret it!

    Was really close to getting platinum in this fun game. Spiderman lived up to the hype for me.

    Was really close to getting platinum in this fun game. Spiderman lived up to the hype for me.

    Pros:
    - Just a fun game overall - traversal was smooth, fighting was well done, and the mini games solid
    - Not a fashion souls guy, but I loved all the Spiderman suits
    - Enjoyed playing as other characters

    Cons:
    - Maybe a bit too many fighting events
    - The random crime events caused me not to get platinum which is pretty lame
    - Stealth was good, but would of loved to see more of it

    Marvel's Spider-man is wonderful edition to Sony's already fantastic line up of single player exclusive titles.

    First and foremost,
    Marvel's Spider-man is wonderful edition to Sony's already fantastic line up of single player exclusive titles.

    First and foremost, Insomniac have made quite simply the most (and by quite some distance) fun character to exist in a 3rd person world. Traversing as Spider-man is both exhilarating and intuitive, which seems like it should be impossible to provide, however they have cracked it. Exploration becomes incredibly rewarding due to the nature of swinging through New York being the reward itself. For this reason I haven't made it very far through the story (which has been great so far), because I have just been collecting all the collectables.

    The collectables have been done in a very satisfying way. Each type is introduced after beating a main mission. This means that (for example) there are only 55 collectables on the map in the beginning (backpacks with tokens and cool nods to Spidey's past and relationships). Every single collectable is available for collection, there are no restrictions that waste time. Then after beating the next mission a completely different type of collectable is available, for example photographing all of the landmarks, getting three stars in Wilson Fisk hideout battles or completing research missions. This bite size nature of adding a new collectable as you play through makes the game enticing to consider platinum-ing.

    Combat: The combat in Spider-man has many highs and a few lows. Combat feels smooth and challenging, rewarding your diversity in moves. I am playing on the harder difficulty and in almost all cases where I have died it has been my own fault and fair. I think the challenge presented in the hard mode is perfect and wish all games offered this balanced, fair level of difficulty. The only complaint I have is that the brutes feel a little un-balanced on the harder setting. They can only be hit while they are webbed and they do huge damage, so if there is ever two of them in one fight, then isolating one and dealing with it becomes very frustrating as they take roughly 25 hits to go down, meaning you need to dodge and avoid damage while webbing and combo-ing it roughly 5-6 times, while dodging the other one. bearing in mind that they can kill you in two hits, it can get a bit panicky and button mashy. I love how this game wires itself into your nervous system the way a fighter game does, so when all of that deliberate fluid tactical combat and goes out the window, it feels slightly cheap.

    Graphics: Graphics is a tough one to talk about, as they are both incredible and at times lacklustre. The world and environments are so stunning that you could forgive someone for comparing this game Vs a cinematic liner single player title. However, we need to remember that this game is actually a large open world with thousands of NPCs, and because of this demanding nature, the NPCs cannot all have the fidelity of Nathan Drake from uncharted. The witcher 3 was the same, where it had really detailed main characters and important NPCs, but every villager had the same bowl-cut hair and face. I personally don't think it detracts from the game at all, but in the current climate of gaming, I know people are going to be "outraged".

    I thoroughly recommend this game to anyone, people with arthritis should avoid this game however, as it really is taxing on the thumbs.

TheAfter completing the game 100% I can confidently say this is a fantastic game. You can really feel the love insomniac put into this title. The main storyline is actually engaging (honestly better than most Marvel movies imo), the combat really makes you feel like Spiderman, I actually felt like unlocking everything, and the graphics on my PS4 Pro had me impressed every bit of the way. None of the unlockables ever felt too far out of reach and the suits were awesome. couldn't say enough good things about this game. If you think you'll like it, you will. Expand
