Very Good

Pleasantly surprised

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.

I really like this game the story is good and the trophies are so easy (I'm a platinum hunter) but after a while it gets boring because you do the same thing over and over again, I personally wouldn't buy this game because i already did everything you can in the game other than that great game.

I was totally surprised just how good this game was. I was expecting it to suck like the Captain America and Green Lantern games. I have been playing for about 8 hours now and the only thing i am not a fan of is the crime missions being exactly the same. Other then that i LOVE this game.
The graphics are awesome and i love that you can free roam in the city and not have to follow the story lines all the time.
The gameplay is smooth and i found a few glitches when i would land on top of a building and i would look down and the city landscape would load kinda slowly. But every game has flaws and i can overlook these because the game is fun to play.
I will buy this game once the price comes down.
Rent this game, you wont be disappionted
