I didn't know what to expect from this one, given the tie to the new reboot movie. I was excited to find that it didn't make the mistake of playing us through a poorly-constructed imitation of the namesake movie. Instead, I found a story that was an extension to the movie itself! What a welcome change to the simultaneous game/movie formula.

The other element that surprised me was the ease and fun I had with the open-world travel, which is quite well done. The combat is also another area that exceeded my expectations and spidy had enough abilities to keep things interesting.

The only thing I'd knock is that the majority of the mini tasks around the city, while initially entertaining, became fairly monotonous after the first few times. At times I found myself completing events just for the sake of getting a the achievement although I did stubbornly finish everything along the way (even the comic books).

Overall a fun game that kept me going to the end.

This game was pretty fun, only real complaint was that sometimes it took a long time to load and would keep you from hitting start or getting to some game menu's. Like after a side mission, you take out some bad guys mugging a random person and after you take them out it would take like 30 seconds before you could pull up the map to see where you should be heading. Overall it was a great game.

Awesome, fun, exciting, just a few words to describe this game. This game combines everything we know and love from previous spiderman games such as free roam (1-3) and stealth missions (shattered dimensions) while adding some new exciting features (web rush) into the mix. Web rush is a new ability that allows you to freeze time momentarily and carefully choose your next action, this is very helpful to me (running into walls does not a good spider man game make). The fighting system is good too (besides the fact you only jam down the square button and once in a while the circle) it never gets old. During th beginning of the game, your camera is fixed at a first-person view, the things that interact with you during that scene was utterly terrifying, very cool. This game is a full immersion into the life of spiderman, playing this I felt like spiderman myself! The Graphics are top notch (up to arkham city level). Im very impressed with how much detail is put into this game, for instance, if you happen to take too much damage your suit actually gets ripped! It finally nice to see a good game since the recent........... flops....... 'cough'edge of time'cough'
The storyline was decent in and of itself. I would recommend to DEFINITELY buy this game ASAP.
