I don't like videogames based on superheroes or movies, but Marvel's Spider-Man was worth it.

The story of the game was surprisingly great, I didn't expected it from a Spider-Man game to the honest.

The gameplay is amazing, a lot of different combos, spectacular moves, gadgets and skills to unlock.

The graphics and audio are fantastic, I was surprised to see such great visuals in a comic based videogame.

The characters are good overall, as well as the facial expressions and the voice acting but I would prefer more depth and personality into the side characters.

Also, the music is quite good and I really liked how they implemented more RPG elements in this game than in the older Spider-Man games, adding a lot of different suits and power ups for each suit, plus bonus power ups use in combat.

The game has it's bad side though.

There isn't enough content compared to other big open world games, the challenges can get repetitive, the A.I. is just bad and, lastly, most of the bosses were not that interesting to fight, they could've been slightly better.


Pros:

+ Great storyline

+ Spectacular gameplay

+ Cool RPG elements

+ Good characters

+ Fantastic visuals


Cons:

- Not enough content

- Repetitive challenges

- Bad A.I.

- Uninteresting boss fights


Narrative: 8/10

Gameplay: 9/10

Content: 6/10

Characters: 7/10

Music: 7/10

Graphics/Audio: 9/10


Final Rating: 8/10

- Great -

Marvel's Spider-Man is easily the best Spider-Man game up to date and one of the best superhero games up to date as well.


Do I recommend it?:

Why not? Very good Ps4 exclusive overall.

Through upgrades to Spidey’s suit, gadgets, and skill tree the combat blossoms from adequate to enthralling over the course of the game. Some ill-conceived stealth sequences hold the game back a bit, but overall, Marvel’s Spider-Man raises the bar for what a licensed open-world game can be in the same way that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has reshaped superhero movies.

Making up for all of the sins of the webhead's past, Marvel's Spider-Man is easily one of Insomniac's finest moments, the studio showing a full understanding of what makes the character tick, creating a definitive Spidey experience that's utterly sublime. Excelsior!

After what we got in Sunset Overdrive, I guess I expected something a bit more original. The combat has a few neat ideas, but it’s a modern take on what came before with little to say on its own. With so many other PS4 exclusives pushing the envelope in so many ways, Spider-Man lives in the past. Just like the ride at Islands of Adventure, it’s a thrilling journey, but it doesn’t last long and it feels just ever so slightly out of date.
