Fair

Mediocre

"The Amazing Spider-Man" boasts nice graphics, a decent story, and a few clever nods to the Spider-Man mythos, but, at the end of the day, it's just not quite up to snuff. It tries desperately and transparently to mimic the recent Batman games, but its missions are repetitive, its combat system is simplistic and lacking in variety, and the camera is way too close to the action. It's a shame, because you can plainly see there's a better Spider-Man game underneath all this, struggling to get out. One can only hope Beenox puts a little more effort into their next Spidey venture, and delivers a game truly worthy of the license.

Very Good

A Major Spoiler Game.

If you're like myself and havent seen the movie then I urge you not to play this game due to the level of spoilers this game delivers. This is set directly after the movie version (for those who havent played this yet) and will probably be the best Spiderman game you'll see on the market for a long time. The game will hook you right in from the beginning with it's huge open world design and tight camera and control work. Graphically though this is a well designed game but some more detail could have been worked through and I'm sure it would have if not for the studio rushing this to be out before the movie. All in all this is a fantastic addition to the Marvel universe and while sometimes the side missions grow to be a bit repetitive and collecting all 700 comic book pages are tedious, it makes up for it by introducing a wide number of villians to fight. This game captures what it's like to be Spiderman and how it feels to websling through the streets of NYC on any given day.
