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.

Pros: Cool Costumes.

Cons: Spider-Man 2 the game

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.

Amazing is a slight exaggeration

Spider-Man spends a lot of time fighting enemies, and much of it is blandly enjoyable. It's easy enough to latch on to faraway enemies, pulling yourself toward them in a frenetic burst of violence as you teach them the follies of their ways with your fists. Dodging enemy attacks and retaliating with incredible force makes you feel like the purveyor of justice Spider-Man wants to be. It is very simple, and after a while it becomes too predictable for its own good. Combat is closer to an elaborate quick-time event than a test of skill. Attack when your foe's guard is down, dodge when he flashes red, and repeat until everyone is squirming at your feet.The biggest failing of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is how familiar it feels. In fact, there have been other open-world games starring Spider-Man that walk a remarkably similar path. There's nothing majorly wrong with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, after all. There's just not a lot right with it, either.
