Best Spider-Man Game this Generation, but it Could have been AMAZING...
9 November 2012
Summary: If you've played previous Spider-Man games you doubt have high expectations for this game. From the great sprawling open city games of last generation to Beenox's well recieved Shattered Dimensions and Edge of Time. While I never played any of the previous generations iteration of Spdier-man, and was not a fan of either of Beenox's linear time-shattering games, I was hoping this game would be amazing (since it is Spider-man after all).
Summary: As a longtime fan of all video games Spider-Man, I was eager to play this title right away. The previous movie-based installments in the franchise like Spider-Man 2 and 3 were pretty well done, and I enjoyed the new movie this game is based on. I was especially excited to hear that free-roaming around the city was back as it was missing from other recent Spidey titles. The story caught my interest right away.
Summary: Not a bad game, personally bought it for my boyfriend. Was gutted when I found out it was based on after the film. Would of much preferred that as the story mode. also a bit weird when spider man is swinging off of not the buildings.... but the air....
Summary: A good game. Playing as spidey is always fun, and the web swinging in this game is quite cool. Pretty neat graphics and an okay story. If you're into spiderman, buy this game, if you're not, don't.
Summary: Having played some few of the open world genre titles this year i have been expecting more from this title. Don't get me wrong here - graphics are pretty, swinging in NY is nice - but the whole game lacks something that would say : "come back and play just another hour". All in all - buy when you like spiderman, or really have not that much to play.
Summary: Overall, this is one of the better Movie-tiein games I've played, and one of the best Spider-Man games I've played. It has a sand-box freeroaming game style, and just getting out and swinging around New York is a lot of fun. They replicate the movements of Spidy from the movie quite nicely, so you get that sense of speed and adrenalyn each time you web-swing.
