    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.

UnchartedMarvel´s Spider-man, one of the most anticipated games of 2018. We all know, that PS exclusive titles are usually very good, viz. Uncharted series, or Horizon: Zero Dawn. But how about Spider-man? A franchise, that had it quite rough in gaming world for a good couple of years... Well, as a huge Spider-man fan I must say, that my childhood superhero was never in a better shape.
    I read a lot of comicbooks, seen all the movies, even watched a lot of TV animated series, so my expectations are allways high. But man, this version of spider universe is so awesome. Probably my second most favorite.
    Graphics - they are excellent, did you expect anything else? :D
    Story - predictable, but entertaining, funny, sad, almost made me cry in the end...
    Gameplay - After beating the game twice I am almost sure, that I am Spider-man... so gameplay is amazing...
    Sound - I am pretty sure that Insomniac made their own web shooters, because that sound of them... it cannot be fake... Music is spectacular and voice acting is at its highest quality.

    My thoughts at the end.... it could be longer, it could have a couple of more suprises, but just everything about this game is SO FUN, that I am willing to forgive it all of its tiny little mistakes...

The swinging feels great, the combat is fun, and all the extra things to collect are fun to collect because it just makes you swing around more. The story itself is phenomenal. Definitely a must-buy for PS4 owners. Expand

Played it only for about 2 hours late last night and have not done a ton of story missions, got far enough in to unlock suit changing and kind of just messed around for a bit so my score may improve.

    There was a ton of hype and I don't think the game will fully live up to that. Controls well but there is a lot to remember. Graphics are good not great, can't put my finger on it but there seems to be something missing in this department, just missing some punch.

    At the end of the day, there seems to be a ton to do and being a solid entry, I'm sure I'll be playing this one for a while.
