    Marvel’s Spider-Man is truly spectacular.

    In sum, Marvel’s Spider-Man is not only the best Spider-Man game to date, and one of the best games this year, but it’s also the best superhero game since Arkham Knight. It’s sure to appeal to any fan of Spider-Man, superhero games, or open world sandbox games in general.

    If being Spider-Man is one of your childhood dreams, playing Marvel's Spider-Man is the best way to fulfill it.

    Spider-Man makes a huge comeback on the PlayStation 4. With an exclusive partnership between Sony, Marvel and Insomniac Games, your friendly neighborhood Spider-man got his strongest game since the release of Spider-Man 2 way back when.

    Probably one of the best iterations on the Spider-Man videogame franchise ever, Insomniac delivers a classic open world title with an strong single-player campaign for everyone to enjoy. While it lacks some unique personality as a game, it’s easy to forget its minor drawbacks while web surfing Manhattan.

    An excellent game set in Marvel Universe that unfortunately has some strange mini-games and weak boss fights.

    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.

    Good:
    - Story: Insomniac really did well in writing the characters (especially Peter, MJ, Aunt May, etc.), villains, plot twist and storytelling.
    - Web Slinging: I had a ton of fun with this because it feels realistic, and I was not bored with it (to the point I only used Fast Travel like once or twice only). Also no fall damage is working really well in this game.
    - Combat: not so hard but not so easy as well (even in the hardest difficulty) so it was not frustrating at all and will still give you a challenge. Using different gadgets makes the game more fun as well.
    - 30 FPS will not cause a problem at all. In addition, the frame rate was stable.
    - It has a great photo mode.

    Bad:
    - Slightly repetitive random crimes, and challenges.
    - No day night circle.

    Honestly, there are SO MANY good aspects in this game that I have forgotten and not written. Also, I feel that this game is more like 9.5 for me, but I will gladly rate it 10 so it will have a higher average review

    Marvel's Spiderman Is the greatest game I played this year for sure, PlayStation just proved yet again why they are the superior console thisMarvel's Spiderman Is the greatest game I played this year for sure, PlayStation just proved yet again why they are the superior console this generation, there Is no reason not to own PS4 by now. Insomniac has created a Masterpiece you can tell they poured there heart In this project they delivered In every way imaginable for Spiderman. This game Is super fluid and responsive and for the people who are saying this Is a "Arkham ripoff" I can tell you this Is defiantly not, the combat Is innovating you have a variety of ways to go about It, gadgets are actually useful/fun and there are many ways to use your webs, you can also use the environment, and there are a lot of awesome outfits with unique abilities and suit mods It's a complete combat package that Is ridiculously fun. The graphics are beautiful with a world that Is alive and filled with real life New York attractions and riddled with Marvel easter eggs, on top of that webbing around Is all you wished for. The story Is well written and masterfully thought out one of the best adaptations. The voice actors did a great job espeicaly for Spiderman/Peter Parker, Yuri Lowenthal did spidey justice, and all the side characters, villains were all fleshed out. The only thing that was lacking was the side quest they are not the best a few were decent and some of the world activities were pretty repetitive horde type stuff and towers but other than that this game Is GOTY worthy loved every second of It.

    IGN didn't get enough money.
    This game is definitely the greatest spider-man game ever, thanks to insomniac and SIE.

Maybe the best superhero. An original and unique story that any spider man fan would like to watch. Gameplay is perfect! Very fluid and fun to play. The open world of the game is incredible, though ... with little bugs that can bother you. Actually, the only flaw in the work is the NPCs, which somehow bothered my experience. Expand
