ok this game is shattered dimensions graphics and gameplay. However you only have two spidermen not 4. That's not really a bad thing so much because the two chosen drive this story. What's really kind of lame is the bad guys go from 13 in shattered down to 4 in edge of time. And 4 is stretching it 2 very unique cool bosses and 2 lame not really new or unique lame bosses (don't want to give spoilers). The enemies get boring and repetitive. Unlike shattered where each boss had their own unique thug, which kept things fresh and exciting. Trophy wise it is an easy platinum and similar to shattered. Fully level up, collect all gold spiders, beat the levels and bosses, and complete the web of destiny challenges. If you played shattered you have played edge if u want an easy platinum or just like a new spidey story rent it. The graphics and story alOng with voice acting is top notch. But don't expect anything new or great it will feel like a step backwards as far as freshness or originality.
The gameplay was decent but became a basic button mashing game during fights and to unlock doors. The game gets stale after a while with huge groups of enemies attacking on screen. Its one to rent and enjoy if your a fan of spiderman but not worth 60 dollars to own. I beat the game and have no strong urge to replay it anytime soon.
Edge of time is a rushed sequel using shattered dimensions assets and framework. They cut out 2 versions of spider-men, noir and black. They also cut down the boss fights from 12 to 3. Using only 2 spider-men and the same building across 2 timelines, they could reuse most of the environments across the game. This makes the game feel much smaller than shattered dimensions which gave you 12 rather large unique places.
The good of this game... they did work on their theatricality a bit, so the game flows entirely from start to finish much like an uncharted. Makes the game play more like an adventure, than how shattered dimensions felt more like arcade play. The challenges are also a bit better, seeing how you can instantly choose to attempt and restart them from inside the web of challenges which is great.
The 2 spider-men have slightly different power sets, but both are essentially the exact same which makes playing a bit monotonous compared to shattered dimensions, where you got 4 very unique different play styles. I myself loved the noir dimension and wish it was here.
The game is also an easy platinum for anyone looking, and one story playthrough takes about 6-8 hours.
