    The more I play The Amazing Spider-Man 2, however, the more I'm viewing it as a superhero game that just happened to have come out at the same time as a movie wih the same name. Obviously, there's a little more corporate synergy at work than that, but it's a sign of this game's quality that it 100% stands up on its own.

    For all but the most passionate Spider-Man fans, TAS2 is one you can safely skip or get by with on a rental.

    Perhaps the biggest problem with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is that it doesn't stray much from the previous game's formula, and when it does, it actively detracts from the game.

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is an entertaining but flawed experience. Beenox has aced the web swinging, but the controls are unreliable and the camera work is horrific at times. It’s apparent that the game was rushed to be released at the same time as the movie.

    Although The Amazing Spider-man 2 isn't a catastrophic disaster by any means, there's also absolutely nothing to recommend it.

    To summarize, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a pity. It's a pity because the potential is there. I do not understand why they cannot treat this superhero with more respect and why they always have to wait for a movie to force a simplistic system in the "awesomeness" that is navigating from web to web through New York.

    Developer Beenox showed in the past, with Shattered Dimensions, that it not only has fresh ideas for Spidey but the development chops to create a polished and impressive game built around the character. There's none of that inspiration or attention to detail here.

    Beenox fails to make a good sequel to the original amazing spiderman game. The combat is not well done, it doesnt feel like its free fighting,Beenox fails to make a good sequel to the original amazing spiderman game. The combat is not well done, it doesnt feel like its free fighting, its more of a restricted aspect of fighting. The bosses in this game don't look good espically green goblin, he looks really different and ugly. The story is okay and could be improved dramatically. The only good things about this game are the web swinging, it definately feels different than the other games and the hero or menace system. The costumes dont feel any different when you play with it, but i guess the appearance of it are worth it? The slot machine game was absolutely like torture, it was really boring and just painful.......Don't even try it unless you have time and you're ready for the pain. After beating the game my first words is "What did I just play??" Overall The Amazing Spiderman 2 is a okay game with really well done web swinging and it is a game you should just try for the web swinging if you were to pick this up otherwise its a incomplete game....

The game lacks in a variety of ways but some of the experiences keeps the game worth playing. Expand

TheI am a die hard Spider-Man fan but this game was a major disappointment. The story was so dull and the dialogue was really cheesy. The graphics sucked and I really didn't enjoy this game. The gameplay is similar to the Batman Arkham series but it just doesn't feel as fluid and fun. The only thing they did right was the web slinging mechanics. I love how the left trigger makes you swing left and the right trigger makes you swing to the right but sadly that's not enough to make this a good game. I hope they make a good Spider-Man game soon because the last one I enjoyed was Spider-man 2 and that was from 2004. Expand
