This is a free-roaming city sandbox superhero game. It’s a good one and there are no glaring technical, graphical or other game play issues that I can name. The only bad thing about this game and let’s just get this out in the open right away is the combat is way too easy.
The actual combat gameplay is very reminiscent of Batman Arkham Asylum and Arkham city in that you have like this Spidey sense every time somebody attacking you and you can cut counter them, or you can get away. It’s your prototypical of Batman combat, but what really makes it too easy of course is not only do you have this Batman Spidey sense to basically see the attacks coming. You also have the superpowers which Batman didn’t so you’re basically a super strong and super hyper super powerful Batman in the game. Honestly I love free-roaming super hero.
This game doesn’t really do anything unique. Playing this is obviously a graphical improvement for the Spiderman games on the PS2 and PS1 but it’s not really a game play improvement. It’s always the same thing you swing around big city and you do exactly what Spiderman does.
Another thing is, this game makes the game a little harder when you have to do a mission because most mission are in enclosed spaces while Spiderman is at his best and he has free range and really uses his powers when he is in a big open city. A lot of the places in the game are dungeon areas like the sewer system where you have to crawl around and be sneaky and there’s just not a lot of room to perform any acrobatics Spiderman stunts. Even this is simplified because there is like this time freezing aspect to the game when you can freeze time and choose exactly what Spiderman is going to go, so you don’t even need good reflexes in this game. Other games like Max Payne also had the time freezing thing. This time freezing aspect is a cool gimmick but it’s really not necessary in a game that is already easy.
If this game is an example of what the movie will be like, I look forward to the movie because this is a fun and quirky game and aside from the pretty easy game play is nothing really bad about it. I love swinging around as Spiderman, it’s a fun thing to do.
It basically looks like Manhattan in real scale. There are all these nukes and crannies to find a Spiderman as you expect. I mean to take advantage of the massive world just like say the new is Batman Lego game, there’s little nukes and crannies all the world where you can find things special secret location. It’s cool. It shows the game developers are not lazy and he took advantage of the big city where is actually stuff to do is not just the big city that basically amounts to a bunch of giant blocks with nothing there.
It is nice finishing touch and very good game. I could definitely see myself coming back to this and having tons of fun. Many hours of just exploring the city and the fun part of being Spiderman swing around the city but just doing the story missions again I don’t see myself doing that repeating the missions really wouldn’t be as fun.
Ultimately, the fun part of his game is exactly what you’d expect from a Spiderman game. It’s a swing around in massive real scale New York City, and that’s awesome.
