This is a sad day for us Spider-Man Fans, this game falls short in almost every situation. I was so excited waiting for this game to come out I am so glad I did not buy it and rented it instead. The new console is the PS4 but the developers of this game were developing it for the Atari.
Graphics: about 3-4 years behind current.
Gameplay: Simple mash buttons repetitive and a little boring.
It is playable but feels like a playstation 2 game from a small company with very little budget. Graphics are not really that good. Gameplay is super easy even on hard. it has 14 missions. yes, only 14. very very short and disappointing. easy gamerscore though on both systems so that is why I gave it a 2 instead of a 1. If they had just made a sequel to the first one which wasn't that great but was very pretty graphics wise. this one is a pile.

Wow. Just wow. This game is atrocious. It smells of a terrible port rushed to coincide with the release of the film. The graphics barely tap into the power of the PS4(this game should have been gorgeous) and the game mechanics are worse. Web slinging is clunky at best and combat is a breeze. The whole Spider-Sense=Detective Mode from the Arkham series failed to come off as well.
TL;DR: Activision somehow takes the mechanics of the Arkham series and a Spider-man game and instead of making it fun, they make a farce of it.
