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).
