The Amazing Spider-Man 2
17 June 2014
Excerpt: Ol' web-head himself, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, is back again for some more console videogame action in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 by Beenox. I enjoyed the last Spider-Man game Beenox put out quite a bit, and was looking forward to getting my gloves on Amazing Spider-Man 2 , but for a...
Excerpt: Other console/handheld formats: PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, 3DS In recent years, Spider-Man games have regressed to the times before Spider-Man 2, in which the web magically attached to the sky as opposed to buildings, which meant that the titular character had seemingly found a way to latch...
Excerpt: As flawed as Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is, its video-game counterpart is even more of a disappointment.

Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Sony PlayStation 4)
9 May 2014
Excerpt: The first Amazing Spider-man game was an enjoyable game that suffered from a few flaws. As far as movie tie-in games go, it was actually pretty solid. It wasn’t Spectacular by any means, nor was it Superior, but it was certainly Adequate. So I was looking forward to this one.
Summary: There is potential here. I don’t know if it was time, money or the will, but it could have been special. The combat isn’t far off decent, it’s just a shame that it’s tied to the rest of the package.
Summary: Canadian-based developer Beenox is no stranger when it comes to the Spider-Man franchise. Their creative efforts shone the brightest when they strayed from the more conventional story arc with the releases of 'Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions' and 'Spider-Man: Edge of Time.
Summary: Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a hard game to categorize. If it's meant to be a movie tie-in game, it misses the mark completely; Peter Parker doesn't look or sound like Andrew Garfield and the movie villains are only dropped in briefly, making them feel like a complete afterthought.
Excerpt: Nearly two years, the Amazing Spider-Man film rebooted the franchise and its video game incarnation hit stores to a lukewarm response. The previous generation’s Spider-Man 2 and Ultimate Spider-Man games were the apex of the wall-crawlers gaming exploits, but ASM’s dev Beenox did a bangup job with...
