Test : The Amazing Spider-Man 2
3 June 2014
Conclusion: Avec une durée de vie de 15 heures, The Amazing Spider-man 2 pêche indéniablement sur l’aspect technique, là où un Infamous Second Son montre tout le potentiel de la PS4. La finition n’est pas au rendez-vous et on peut aussi lui reprocher des temps de chargement trop longs. Se balader dans New York en monde ouvert, c’est bien. Mais on aurait préféré une Big Apple réaliste grâce à une modélisation réussie.
Pros: Les phases de voltige, Modélisation et animation de Spiderman, Respect de l'oeuvre de San Lee, Introduction de nouveautés, Aspect combat bien ficelé
Cons: Modélisation de New York, Réalisation technique indigne de la PS4, IA des ennemis lors des phases d'infiltration, Quêtes secondaires répétitives, Phases en Peter Parker peu convaincantes, Temps de chargement
Excerpt: 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 onto clouds. With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 , developer Beenox has brought back the need for a building or tree to be nearby to swing from, but sadly, in some ways, the game itself isn’t quite up to the standards of the original.
Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Sony PlayStation 4)
10 May 2014
Summary: Overall not a whole lot has changed from one game to the next, but I can’t help but feel underwhelmed by this version in comparison to the last one. The graphics are not as good as they should be, the loading times are still just as bad as they were last time around, and the game just feels undercooked. Not terrible but certainly not Amazing, and not even Adequate this time.
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.' Since then, they've embraced the movie tie-in with Sony Picture Entertainment's 'The Amazing Spider-Man' film series.
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 Shattered Dimensions – so there was at least a pedigree there to believe in.
Excerpt: Forgiveness is not a rational choice. Emotions are what cause us to waver in our beliefs, to brush aside a questionable act from a loved one or to put blinders on when the truth overwhelms us. The idea of forgiveness is endemic to what The Amazing-Spider 2 is. Peter Parker is a grounded guy despite his extraordinary powers, and his innate relatability makes him likable.
Pros: Enjoyable representation of Spider-Man, Satisfying boss fights
Cons: Tedious side missions, Combat is too simple for its own good, Movement lacks precision
Excerpt: Spider-Man has been amazing, spectacular, and most recently superior. Now he can add sloppy to his list of titles. While developer Beenox hasn’t really up kept a solid stewardship of Spider-Man, the last Amazing Spider-Man game proved to be a fun romp in the big apple. For the sequel, Beenox has back peddled on any progress they’ve made, creating an o.k. looking, mass market pill of a game.
Conclusion: For each thing Gameloft did right with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 , it seems to have gotten two things wrong. While Manhattan has been beautifully realised (at least by mobile standards), it’s been weighed down by clumsy controls, and random drops in frame rate. The combat had potential, but it lacks the depth necessary to fully realise it.
Pros: Impressive open world
Cons: Mashy Combat, Performance issues, Internet requirement, Shoddy controls
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (PS4) Review – A Giant Web of Suck!
10 May 2014
Excerpt: For nearly a decade I have been reviewing Spider-Man games. During those years Spidey has seen his share of ups and downs but ever since developer Beenox took over the franchise, Spider-Man has consistently delivered a solid web slinging experience. That run of success has unfortunately come to a grinding halt with Beenox’ latest entry into the Spider-Man series of games. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is anything but amazing.
