    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.

    Marvel's Spider-Man PS4 Pro review. Lots of potential, but lacks for execution.

    Definitely best spider man game ever but still falls short
    Marvel's Spider-Man PS4 Pro review. Lots of potential, but lacks for execution.

    Definitely best spider man game ever but still falls short of what it could have been, so far would give strong 7 out of 10. People on the streets do acknowledge and interact with you on somewhat level, but their faces do not move, like lips and stuff 95% of the time, it just some body animation and then you hear voice saying a line, but their face almost never moves.

    Also if you run, you pretty much run straight through people. Like non clip thing is on, although they do seem to have "pushed" animations, but it somewhat activates too late, once spider runs through them and it is really distracting considering u could not do it in the amazing spider man 2 game.

    Fighting combat is fun, but straight up cloned from Batman Arkham Knight. Animals on the streets like squirrels run beside u and u can walk through them, because they do not have any AI they just have random spawn and movement pattern....and again u can just non clip through them.

    I don't know... city feels somewhat best as it ever been, but yeah.. if it was like GTA V style, where npc's actually have their life...these are just generic npc's which spawn randomly and do not do anything, like no purpose. They will shout for a taxi for as long as you going to wait for them to do something else.. but nah, npc will just stand on its animation loop and will shout for taxi even tho taxi car is there standing beside him. Not only that... traffic.... it just gets stuck. Nobody is moving, not even NPC's they just stand in the same spots. People stand beside road crossings and they do not do that. You can see low assets kicking in on cars, like 10 m away from them. Lower polygon models and it is somehow distracting but yeah, as much as city is animated and detailed it is as DEAD... And the lines of npc's do repeat even after 5 mins of standing still

    Story is good tho, swinging is fun. but anything else.. much potential maybe they needed another 2-3 months to polish things, maybe they needed more hardware power... Idk, but this is rather single linear game, because open world feels like a sandbox without a sand in it.

    Spider himself also seems not to be interested into interacting with environment, apart casual triangle button press beside npc's who come over u and say something like lets do selfie and after bumping into someone saying "excuse me" or similar line. And even after giving high five or other **** npc's just keep standing and doing nothing they do not walk away or mind their own business.

    Traffic AI is bad too... i see cars stuck and not moving for minutes, the traffic pattern seems to be very generic. You can stand in front of a car and block the way and the npc behind the wheel won't beep u or mimic or do anything. Yeah, again.. much potential, but open world is dead.

    I can only imagine the game which could have been if they would actually made some AI for npc's rather than focusing everything into the story which will leave you empty after the completion, unless you want to do the repetitive collectibles and side missions.

    I paid 52 euros for the game and completed on PS4 Pro. Will sell it to store for 50 euros voucher, so at the end game did not cost anything to me, but it leaves somewhat disappointment feeling. Maybe too much hype after all this waiting.

    Graphics: 8/10 (has the watch dogs 2 vibe and feel with a mix of the crew 2, but you can see popping and asset flipping to lower polygon models, car models are quite repetitive and npc models are not topping GTA V NPC's (2013 game))

    Gameplay: 9/10 (for Spiderman) and 5/10 (for rest of the world)

    Story: 8/10 (feels like a decent hero movie, nothing new you haven't seen)
