As many faults as I can find with Turf Wars, it’s still a lot of fun to play. Stepping back into the Spidey suit is exhilarating, and this chapter offers up some of the toughest challenges yet. Turf Wars is more Spider-Man, and while it’s a lot of fun, it mostly retreads on things that we’ve seen or done in the main campaign without meaningful advancement.
Although it’s still fun, it just doesn’t have enough to be properly compared to the base game. I hope that Silver Lining will be more satisfying in terms of plot, payoff, and gameplay because Turf Wars doesn’t live up to the main game or even the previous DLC in any of those respects, and without the strong characterization of Yuri Watanabe, the plot would fall completely flat.
Ultimately, Spider-Man’s second DLC feels like filler and a whole lot of missed opportunity. It makes the choice to split the City That Never Sleeps expansion into three parts seem like a questionable one. One sizable expansion of Marvel’s Spider-Man encompassing everything from CTNS would likely make for a much more engaging and consistent experience. So far, it’s been an uneven ride leaving a lot to be desired. The third part of the trilogy has a lot of expectation riding on it.
