    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.

It has the highlights you would imagine and the drawbacks you have come to expect from the genre. I have had fun with the title and can easily recommend to fans. While I understand some of the complaints and comparisons to other games in the genre, some of the low scores I have seen around the web don't seem justifiable. I feel this is the best entry in the series with the most polish to date. Expand

    Beenox deserves a trophy for this game. Not in the sense that this game is fantastic ( or by anyway above tolerable ) but considering theBeenox deserves a trophy for this game. Not in the sense that this game is fantastic ( or by anyway above tolerable ) but considering the limitations and budget placed on them by Notorious Publisher Activision and their considerably small budget, this game is a standing achievement. This is one of the most enjoyable Movie licensed games in recent years ( Along with XMEN Origins:Wolverine ).

    I will not bore you with the details,seeing as there are literally dozens of other sources that go far more in depth then I'd go,my advice would simply be this: If you are a massive Spider-Man game or you liked the previous title this isn't a bad purchase.Anyone else would be better off waiting for the eventual price drop and picking the game up then.

    Un mal juego de principio a fin. Graficos bastante malos y descuidados, un mundo libre al que le falta contenido, todo es repetitivo, aburridoUn mal juego de principio a fin. Graficos bastante malos y descuidados, un mundo libre al que le falta contenido, todo es repetitivo, aburrido y muerto, sin vida. La historia es bastante normal, igual que el diseño de Spider Man,. El gameplay es terrible, con unos controles muy incomodos. Es otro mal juego de super heroes que no te lo recomiendo, salvo que seas un muy gran fan del personaje, pero como juego es muy malo. 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
