    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 continues to swing with energy, but you can see some of the strain peeking out of his suit. Between the glitches from rushed development and some unnecessary gameplay segments (go…away…Peter!), it's not nearly as good as Beenox's other efforts. Here's to hoping that for the next game, Activision lets this team run wild on something inventive and new. Certainly couldn't hurt this web-slinger's chances.

    Essentially picking up where the last game left off, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 does little to push the series forward, instead choosing to play it safe and reheat the same gameplay structure. That said, there's still a fair bit to enjoy here, especially if you missed out on the first Amazing Spider-Man.

    The Amazing Spiderman 2 may not do total justice to our hero, but the ride is a good comic book distraction.

    The various game crashes, audio glitches, and unceasing loading make up an additional catalog of do-not-want, but it’s really just how diminished Spider-Man is that hurts. The anemic plot and the oft-repeated zingers give us a pencil sketch of the great Spider-Man, when he deserves to be inked and colored.

    But in the end, it becomes hard to recommend The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to anyone but the most devout of webhead fans, because it's a game that squanders all that potential.

    As usual, swinging through New York City as Spider-Man is an exhilarating and empowering proposition, but repetitive open-world events, unfocused/unrefined story missions, and a surplus of technical hindrances/poor design choices keep The Amazing Spider-Man 2 from being a solid movie tie-in.

    The biggest question you'll be left asking is why the Amazing Spider-man 2 exists. [Issue#148, p.102]

It hit's spider Nirvana in an all time high. The missions don't seem repetitive as you cut crime. The undercover Peter missions have an underlying campaign that gets you involved so much. I assure, Do not miss this game! Expand

    This is the first beenox spiderman game ive actually enjoyed, mainly due to the introduction of the proper webswinging thro new york which iThis is the first beenox spiderman game ive actually enjoyed, mainly due to the introduction of the proper webswinging thro new york which i think they totally nailed - in general i really enjoyed it despite its flaws (of which there are many - lazy filler missions - lack of proper dynamic aerial combat), hard to put a rating on it becos of this, but i played it nonstop for 3 days and its probly the most fun ive had with a game this generation (yes i have titanfall) there is a truly amazing game in there somewhere and i think with just a bit more effort the follow up could be awesome- my 2 cents as follows;

    - Add some more depth to ground based combat
    - introduce aerial combat similar to spiderman web of shadows.
    - introduce player on player multilayer races through the city - cmon this would be amazing - SPIDEY v VENOM v CARNAGE RACE!!!!!!
    -put more effort into the filler missions...i accept they are a necessary evil but a wee bit more variety would go a long way!

    Anyways im no game developer but i think those tweaks would go a long way!

    Lets start with the bad. The load times are terribly long, and extremely often. All side quests are nearly identical and while "open world",Lets start with the bad. The load times are terribly long, and extremely often. All side quests are nearly identical and while "open world", most of it isnt open. The story is short, and not worh the $60 price. The movement is clunky, and did I mention the endless nonstop load times. That being said, it can be fun if you stick to the main missions ONLY. If you are a spiderman fanatic, I would pick this up used and avoid the $60. Everyone else, if someone loans it to you try it out, otherwise save your cash.

    If you get a chance to play it for free sometime down the road though, not a TERRIBLE game. Just not going to be confused for even half as good as the majority of batman games.

    Just like the movie, this spider man story should have never been released. The combat is terrible, the graphics look like a xbox 360 game,Just like the movie, this spider man story should have never been released. The combat is terrible, the graphics look like a xbox 360 game, and easily gets repetitive. The storyline is even worse than the movie this game is based off. If your a marvel fan, you should definitely not play this game. Expand

    Not that bad. But pretty bad. Open world and web swinging is honestly a blast. Thats about it though.
