Why I didn't like this game and why it didn't work for me, a simple list:
gameplay was very simple and quite repetitive, it got old and boring fast
The map was hard for me to get used to and really wasn't helpful
Controls were awful, it never did what I wanted it to do. Like if I walked to a ledge and stopped it would keep going and would walk right off the edge
It glitched a lot
Long and frequent load times
Graphics weren't anything special
Storyline wasn't engaging for me and it was really short
I despised the side tasks of saving people to keep up your hero status. It would fall to menace way too fast so it was like you had to do these stupid repetitive tasks over and over again nonstop. I stopped doing them but being a menace was annoying because of the task force setting up traps everywhere. It completely ruined the already dull gameplay. Even after I beat the game I couldn't turn this off to make them optional.
Overall this is just my least favorite Spider-Man game yet and wasn't worth the time I spent on it
I played it for all of 30 minutes. There was one cool element I saw early on (the spidey sense quick web slinging), but the rest of the game play was just a pure nightmare. I felt the fighting was just button mashing and it was very difficult to see the warning above Spider-Man's head indicating his spidey sense. The graphics fell very short of my expectations for what a PS4 game should look like. While I only played for 30 minutes, my opinion won't carry as much weight as someone who was courageous enough to play the whole way through. I felt like I saw all I needed to see in that first half an hour.

This is one of the most repetitive games i've ever played. While the semi open world is nice it is misleading. All you can do is 1. beat up random bad guys. 2, rescue people from a building fire. 3. stop a high speed chase. 4. take pictures. And every time you do one of these things you get a news report about how great Spidey is. Then you go back and do more of the same, over and over and over to earn hero points and level up your suit. This would have been bearable if you could interact with the random people in the city. But you cannot punch them, web them, swing into them or really affect them in any way. What is the use of a Hero/Menace bar if i can't be a jerk and web people???
