    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.

    Una muy buena representación del personaje, con una jugabilidad divertida, una historia propia y muy buena y un gran apartado visual

Flawless. I'm playing on the PS4 Pro and think the frame rate is fine. It's not a twitch based game, you don't need 60 fps and 30 fps gives it a nice cinematic feel which works beautifully.

    The main story missions are fantastic but be warned if you're playing with younger children who enjoy the free roam play, some have violent scenes that suit the 16 rating - in one scene someones head is crushed purposely underfoot, off camera but.. Not for kids. Saying that my 5 year old could not enjoy the free roaming more and this part has no content to worry you. Some occasional teen bad language.

    The proper side missions are great with good stories but the collection missions used to buy gadgets and suits can get samey - but then again, it's always fun to get around!

    The only thing I don't like. The only thing. Immersion is sometimes broken by story plot points in audio that don't meet the scene you are in. For example as you land next to a character and then the background story audio is telling you how hard it will be to find that character. Not a biggie and only 3 or 4 occasions at 50% complete but it stood out. If not, this would have got a 9.5 ;)

    Deep combat, not too easy, great exploration and beautifully realised city. Fantastic!

    I'm giving this game a 9 because it is the first game since the Arkham games to truly nail the superhero aspect in a superhero game. WebI'm giving this game a 9 because it is the first game since the Arkham games to truly nail the superhero aspect in a superhero game. Web slinging feels great and the story is incredible. Only issue I really have with this game is the repetitive activities. Expand
