Without repeating myself and filling up pages and pages on what this game is and how it accomplishes what it set out to do, let me wrap up by saying regardless of this being a PlayStation 5 launch title, it is a phenomenal game. I’m not all that steeped into the Spider-Man lore but when I finished this game I turned to my spouse and said, “I don’t want another Spider-Man game, I want Spider-Man 2 to be a Miles Morales adventure.” This character, this world, is what I’m here for and I hope to be swinging as Miles again soon because this first entry is something truly special.

From its newly incorporated next-gen technology down to its rooted and representative backstory, everything about Spider-Man: Miles Morales makes it the first real next-gen console gaming release. A short but fun sequel to the groundbreaking Spider-Man for PS4 that’s more than worthy as a successor.
Leon HurleyNov 06, 2020
Overall it's been a weird one to review. I really enjoyed it, but the brevity feels like something to warn you about given that this is presented as a launch title. Even if you were expecting a small 'full' game, this is smaller. It plays like great DLC, because it is great and also clearly DLC, rather than a stand-alone expansion.

It’s hard to imagine going back to playing as Peter after stepping into Miles’ shoes. Bashing a heavy enemy to the ground with venom after he’s gotten in your way, cloaking yourself out of trouble and then ambushing enemies from a new angle, and even just the joy of some Spider-Man 2-esque traversal challenges all make for a great time.

The story has holes in it when you look closer, especially when it comes to civilian causalities during tremulously destructive situations. The Tinkerer just not as interesting as the previous villains as her reasons for causing havoc, while understandable, doesn't have the same impact when you look closer at her actions. Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales provides another breathtaking superhero adventure that will delight both adventure fans and Spidey fans alike.
Jonathon DornbushNov 06, 2020
Superman: Man of Tomorrow a safe and largely predictable take on the Man of Steel's iconic origin story. While that lack of narrative ambition is disappointing at times, there's a reason this particular story has endured so well over the years. Man of Tomorrow gets to the heart of Clark Kent and the emotional journey he has to experience before he can truly become Superman. With a revamped visual style and a strong voice cast, Man of Tomorrow serves as a solid start for this new animated universe.

While it does little to move the needle for the series as a whole, Spider-Man: Miles Morales both plays the part of a much-needed stopgap and serves as a technical showcase of what the PlayStation 5 can bring to the table.
Chris JarrardNov 06, 2020
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will appeal to loads of gamers and I suspect it will be a hit for PlayStation owners this holiday season. While there isn’t as much to do this time around and what is included is mostly recycled, the asking price is lower than normal. Being Spider-Man is still as fun as it was in 2018 (and potentially more fun now at 60Hz) and Miles Morales is a character that is more compelling than Peter Parker. Should the few technical hiccups get sorted out, this will be a solid inclusion for any game library. Anyone grabbing a PS5 at launch would do well to grab a copy.
Sammy BarkerNov 06, 2020
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is effortlessly cool. The overall gameplay structure may prove samey for those who failed to fall in love with Insomniac Games’ previous effort, but everyone else will have a blast with this generous spin-off story. Great characters, tons of activities, and some epic set-piece moments round out a must play superhero romp – and with the developer on this kind of form, we can’t wait to see more of the full-scale sequel that it’s inevitably cooking up.
Josh HarmonNov 06, 2020
Don’t be fooled into thinking Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is some minor spin-off of Insomniac Games’ PS4 exclusive. Sure, it’s not as long, but the experience is packed with enough new gameplay ideas and design refinements that it feels every bit like a true, substantial successor.
Chris CarterNov 06, 2020
Just like Into the Spider-Verse, I was pleasantly surprised by Miles Morales. I came in fully expecting it to be a side story, but it was much more than that. If this is setting us up for Spider-Man 2 where both Miles and Peter are playable: I'm in.
Logan MooreNov 16, 2020
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a worthy follow-up to the previous installment, even if a lot of the core DNA has remained the same. Despite some rough edges, the experience as a whole is one that’s hard to put down once you get entrenched. This proves to be doubly true if you’re playing on PS5 and are really looking for a game that’s going to show you what this next-gen leap is all about.

Dan HastingsNov 10, 2020
With such a strong foundation and a rock-solid game that came before it, Miles Morales had some high expectations. In many ways, it delivered what you would want from a Spiderman adventure. It falls short with a weaker lineup of villains and a less interesting story. Marvel's Spiderman was just too good.
Paul SullivanNov 06, 2020
It looks sensational and is an absolute riot to play. Miles’ story brings all the drama and feels it needs to, and highlights a community outside what’d normally be on the drawing board for a game like this. Despite some bugginess, this is the game you want to show off your impressive new hardware. I can guarantee I’ll be slinging from Harlem to Hell’s Kitchen daily for the foreseeable future.
Mike WilliamsNov 06, 2020
The early heroic career of Miles Morales gets some shine in this standalone soft sequel to Marvel's Spider-Man for PS4. Web swinging is still fantastic and the combat system expands with Miles' more varied powerset. And while you might have played most of this game before, Insomniac does an amazing job telling the story of its version of Miles. Rooted in his new home of Spanish Harlem, he's probably the most "friendly neighborhood" of any version of Spider-Man.
Mike MinottiNov 06, 2020
As I think about it, I’m not sure if a Sony home console has ever had a better PlayStation launch game than Spider-Man: Miles Morales. This certainly beats Knack and Killzone: Whatever the Subtitle Was on PlayStation 4.
Josh WiseNov 12, 2020
Whether or not you feel as though you have gotten your money’s worth will depend on how you measure that worth. Is it solely on length? If so, fair enough, but may I suggest a rejigging of the assessment. This is that rarest of things: the lean AAA release. And I for one wish to congratulate it for not bowing to the usual blockbuster diktat: Be Longer.
Chandler WoodNov 06, 2020
Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales is the perfect showcase of the PS5, espousing multiple enhancements to its last-gen predecessor while also feeling familiar. Even apart from its standing as a flagship PS5 launch title, Miles Morales is Insomniac perfecting the formula from the original game and offering an experience that is more concise, focused, and full of heart than the first.
Richard SeagraveNov 10, 2020
Perhaps I’ve been dismissive of Spider-Man: Miles Morales in calling it a standalone expansion, because while it may indeed be shorter than Insomniac’s first Spider-Man outing, it’s not just a simple continuation of the story designed to wring out a bit more moolah from your wallet. Think of it as a more focused sequel instead, as that’s what it actually feels like.
Richard WalkerNov 15, 2020
Like Miles himself, this is something lean but powerful - a superhero experience to enjoy at a leisurely pace over a few days, before diving right back in for a second helping, via New Game+. There's certainly an argument here for more games of a similar ilk, slender but punchy, and deft at spinning a compelling web of intrigue.
Darryn BonthuysNov 16, 2020
It’s shorter and familiar, but the first solo outing of Miles Morales in his own dedicated video game is nothing short of amazing. A follow-up to an already spectacular first game, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales improves on its core design with creative energy and attitude that sets it apart from the original. A brilliant first step on the PS5 and a final hurrah for the PS4, Marvels Spider-Man: Miles Morales is spectacular.
Kai PowellNov 06, 2020
Miles Morales is a far more charismatic hero than Peter in Parker in Marvel's Spider-Man and there's no better way to tell his story than with his own game as a PlayStation 5 launch title. While shorter and more compact than Peter Parker's adventures, this quick trip to Harlem should be on any superhero fan's wishlist.
Benjamin MaltbieNov 17, 2020
Spider-Man: Miles Morales has a lot to say and it uses every available resource to communicate its messages and themes. Like Miles himself, it is earnest. Among other things, it depicts societal issues in an honest, digestible, and unabashed way.
Brandon JonesNov 06, 2020
Cade OnderNov 06, 2020
Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the end of one generation and the start of another. It serves as yet another defining title for PlayStation but also an essential story for Marvel's greatest hero. With new innovations in Spidey gameplay as well as loads of refinement and a wildly impactful story, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the game we need right now.
Andrew ReinerNov 06, 2020
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales satisfies. Taking to the web-line and soaring across a wintery New York skyline is every bit as enthralling as it was before, and Miles develops into a fantastic hero. This follow-up doesn’t have as much of a sinister punch, but it delivers some great plot twists and concludes with another eye-opening post-credits sequence that teases an exciting future for Insomniac’s Spider-Man series.
Kirk MckeandNov 06, 2020
It’s one of those action games, but by god, it’s the best one. There’s something to be said for the importance of innovation in this medium, but you can’t overlook refinement, and Spider-Man: Miles Morales is more refined than the sugar in a New York bagel.
GameCentralNov 06, 2020
That’s not a problem Spider-Man: Miles Morales suffers from though and this is not only one of the most satisfying story experiences we’ve had in an action game all year but a highly encouraging glimpse at the future of PlayStation 5 games, and next gen gaming in general.
Lee MehrDec 02, 2020
If Spider-Man was Insomniac's rebuttal to this titular hero's decaying status within games, Miles Morales is its claim that story opportunities beyond Peter Parker are also worthwhile. From beginning to end, I came in with the tempered expectations of a 'sidequel' and got just that.
Bernard BooNov 06, 2020
There are a ton of surprises and tie-ins to the first game that are revealed as you play Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales which I can’t reveal here, but it’s safe to say that Insomniac isn’t anywhere near done telling this story. I had a great time with the game, and while some will probably complain that the campaign is a tad short, I respectfully disagree.
Jim HargreavesNov 06, 2020
Spider-Man: Miles Morales feels like more of a sequel than it is a stopgap, entangling players within its web of cleverly refined mechanics while delivering some familiar web-slinging thrills. A heroic technical showcase for PS5 owners picking up their consoles on day one, this meaty side story in the Spider-Man saga has us even more excited than before to see what Insomniac Games have planned next.
Adam KerrNov 27, 2020
Another fantastic experience from Insomniac’s serving of Spider-Man. An improvement on an already fantastic original title. In Insomniac’s hands, we don’t just have two great Spider-Man games, but two great Spider-Men.
Ben LyonsNov 06, 2020
Spider-Man: Miles Morales is exactly what fans of Marvel's Spider-Man are looking for in new content, but it's also so much more. The signature brilliant movement and combat systems are back, and are fleshed out to suit Miles' unique style. Similarly, there are now two charismatic web-slinging personalities for future storylines to be developed with, each of whom offer differing cultural perspectives for New York to be explored as their stories expand.
Adam CookNov 06, 2020
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales manages to improve on the fantastic game that came before it. Insomniac Games continue to be on fire with perhaps their best game ever.
John-Paul JonesNov 06, 2020
A stunning and must have PlayStation 5 launch title, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a beautifully digestible superhero yarn that not only maintains the formula of its 2018 predecessor, but which also lays down an enticing blueprint for a full blown sequel to follow. This is essential stuff.
A.J. MaciejewskiNov 06, 2020
Without a doubt, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a much more enjoyable game than the original and it shows off PS5's performance brilliantly. It's too bad that it isn't longer because I loved every minute of it.
Steve WrightNov 07, 2020
Spider-Man Miles Morales is a tight little package that provides a thrilling Spider-Man experience, trimmed of nonessential fat and full of emotion and excitement. With Spider-Man 2 — likely, a true PS5 title — teased within, I only hope that Miles will get to share equal amounts of limelight as Peter.
Adam MathewNov 06, 2020
For a launch title, the worth of Spider-Man: Miles Morales is undeniable. It offers an expensive-TV-justifying visual feast – not to mention a tantalising “What Dreams May Come” glimpse at the sugar encrusted future of eye-candy. (Console hasn't even launched yet and I can feel my eyes getting the diabeetus.) Likewise, it delivers super-fast load times and an immersive, tactile DualSense experience you simply can't 'feel' anywhere else.
Steve FarrellyNov 27, 2020
Sony fanpeeps will sing its praises from Manhattan rooftops and it fills a gap. There’s just a question of “is it enough?” and even as a massive comic book geek and lover of all things wall-crawling, I’d have waited another six months for a more fleshed-out experience, and one that doesn’t overly mimic the foundation of its origins. Miles might learn from Peter, and Peter might be the ‘A’ Spider-Man, but that doesn’t need to mean Miles lives exclusively in his design shadow.
Jorge CanoNov 06, 2020
Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales is the perfect showcase of the PS5, espousing multiple enhancements to its last-gen predecessor while also feeling familiar. Even apart from its standing as a flagship PS5 launch title, Miles Morales is Insomniac perfecting the formula from the original game and offering an experience that is more concise, focused, and full of heart than the first.
Francisco Alberto SerranoNov 06, 2020
Spider-Man es un gran juego cuyo mayor defecto es no salirse demasiado de los pasos de su antecesor, ni siquiera para intentar superarlo. No es, ni por asomo, un DLC camuflado como se ha venido diciendo maliciosamente, pero tampoco es una secuela con aspiraciones de dejar su propia huella o marcar un punto de inflexión.
Urko MiguelNov 06, 2020
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales es una obra quizás más humilde en ciertos aspectos respecto a su predecesor, pero a su vez también más espectacular. Su frenético ritmo, la atractiva jugabilidad que nos ofrece, y el diverso contenido secundario que podremos completar, dan forma a un título que ningún poseedor de PlayStation 4 o PlayStation 5 debería pasar por alto.
Alberto CoronaDec 04, 2020
El obsceno disfrute que proveía Marvel’s Spider-Man aquí es replicado con una variopinta serie de alicientes: desde las ya citadas mejoras en el reparto de tollinas hasta unas batallas mucho más elaboradas contra los bosses, pasando evidentemente por la posibilidad de balancearse por Nueva York portando el traje de Un nuevo universo mientras suena algún temazo de hip hop.
David MartínezNov 06, 2020
Miles Morales es un buen juego de lanzamiento, que conserva las virtudes del anterior Spider-Man, pero resulta menos ambicioso en duración y escala de la trama. Pone en pantalla algunos elementos "next gen" y resulta increíblemente divertido.
Luis SánchezNov 13, 2020
El juego brilla por ofrecer un acercamiento personal y entrañable de su protagonista, al mismo tiempo que utiliza las mejores cartas, olvidando el letárgico progreso de su versión original. Miles Morales es personalidad pura y estilo inigualable. Recomendado.
DefaNov 06, 2020
¿Recomiendo Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales para estrenar el PS5? Por supuesto. Digo, como lo expresé en otros contenidos, mi recomendación es que lo primero que debes de jugar en la consola es Astro’s Playroom, pero la realidad es que saltar a la nueva aventura del arácnido más querido de todos los tiempos, es también un verdadero deleite. Simplemente no puedo esperar para ver qué más van a hacer los desarrolladores con todo lo que ofrece la nueva consola de Sony, pues estos primeros vistazos que estamos teniendo de ella, nos pintan un futuro muy brillante en el que seguramente, los primeros en ganar seremos nosotros, los jugadores.
David SorianoNov 11, 2020
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales may not be quite as packed with content as the original, but it stands out as an essential story in Insomniac’s Spidey Universe. It earns its spot as a fantastic follow-up, telling a wonderful Miles-specific story while improving upon the fundamentals of the first game with distinctive moves and enemies. And it’s an excellent way to break in your new PlayStation 5; it looks spectacular, loads fast, and makes fun use of the DualSense controller, the directional audio, and more. But regardless of which generation you play it on, it’s a worthy followup to one of the best superhero games ever made.
Jörg LuiblNov 06, 2020
Spider-Man: Miles Morales inszeniert coole Action in offener Welt, wobei wie schon im Vorgänger die Luftakrobatik der Star ist. Wenn man bei Sonnenuntergang durch die Häuserschluchten jagt, an Tempo gewinnt und Tricks vollführt, macht das ebenso Laune wie eine erfolgreiche Kombo, die man mit einer brutzelnden Venom-Attacke zwischen seinen Feinden abschließt.
LoganNov 06, 2020
Classique dans sa construction et son scénario, époustouflant dans sa mise en scène, Marvel’s Spider-Man : Miles Morales détonne à défaut d’étonner. S’axant autour d’un excellent gameplay profitant ici d’améliorations, le tout peine toutefois à convaincre dans sa proposition de contenu trop proche de celle du jeu de 2018. En soi, ce n’est pas très problématique d’autant qu’on troque ici l’élément de surprise pour une sensation de puissance encore plus prégnante grâce aux nouvelles capacités de Miles. Toujours aussi agréable dans son système de déplacement et ses scènes d’action, légèrement plus fun dans ses passages d’infiltration, le titre maximise une structure parfaitement rodée sans jamais chercher à réagencer les éléments. Un bien pour un mal débouchant sur un stand-alone plus hollywoodien que jamais, mais s’enfermant de lui même dans une structure très convenue.
