It’s been hard to come up with a review for this game. I don’t want to be too critical or I’ll get hammered in the comments. Overall a great action game. It follows well from the 2018 game. The graphics are great and the combat is also great. However, I found the main “villain” to be a disappointment. She just wasn’t a great Spider-Man villain. The only supervillain was Rhino. Also, the game is just too short for $49.99. It should have been maybe $30.00 or $40.00 max as it was only about 7 hours. I know it wasn’t supposed to be a full game, but the length was disappointing. Overall I’d recommend it if you get it on a good sale. I’ll most likely play it through again.
Miles Morales improved on the combat and mission level design compared to the first game, while also giving more meaningful sidequests to be completed. So that made the game less repetitive, which was a complaint about the first one.
But I didn't feel as attached to Miles as I thought I would be, it looked like they rushed the second half of the story and he stopped developing as a character. For most people, it was a genuine and charming teenager's attitude, but I was kind of disappointed.
I don't have the comic-book perspective to say what his character really is, but I believe the game being too short hurt his character development.
I really enjoyed the game, it's still a blast to zipping through NY, nothing else in gaming feels as good. But the story was kind of a letdown.
