As stated. I give applause to a few things first. Good Story lines to I have played up to. Visuals and ease of play is good. Once I got going it wasn't that hard. I even played it on Super hero mode and kind of felt the same way about easy since I already knew what to do.

The only main issue I had is that I feel it will be too reparative after you play it for a while and when you beat it, the interest in playing it again won't be as high.

The Amazing-Spider Man doesn't get caught in the messy web (har har) that other movie tie-in games do, but ultimately is a forgettable experience.

The good: The combat feels similar to the Batman: Arkham series, albeit not as refined (read: not as good). The web swinging works well for the most part, and exploring the city is fun. There's a lot to do if you're into the open-world games such as Assassin's Creed (collectables, side missions, etc.). Graphics are pretty solid for the most part, bugs/glitches aren't particularly noticeable.

The bad: The voice acting is atrocious to the point where I wanted to turn the sound off. The story takes place following the events of the movie which is a neat idea, but it lacks any punch and ends up feeling silly. Wall climbing can be a pain as the camera can't seem to keep up with what you're doing. Stealth is also not well done and can lead to frustration.

My recommendation? Check out Beenox's other Spider-Man games, Shattered Dimensions in particular. This one isn't bad, but might not be worth your time if you have other options.

I really didnt enjoy the game that much some reasons why i didnt like it

the webbing shot way up it was like the first spiderman on the PS2. i like the way that had the blacked suited suit from Spdm3 thats a plus. The villains showed up in the movie like from the game (rhino). The other suits were good looking but they didnt surprised me that much.

Lets see if the next game Beenox is making would be better "the new game kinda looks cartoonish"!
