    Marvel’s Spider-Man is truly spectacular.

    Spider-Man is a fantastic action game with great movement and combat and a compelling story that's only dragged down from time to time with boring missions and QTE-based boss fights.

    Spider-Man makes a few tiny mistakes, but other than that Insomniac tells an emotional and surprising story about Peter Parker, combined with revolutionary freedom of movement that never gets old.

    Though it has a few minor blemishes here and there, they're never significant enough to really detract from the overall experience. Whether you're a long-term Spider-Man fan or someone who only knows a little, Marvel's Spider-Man is an incredibly easy game to recommend for anyone who owns a PS4.

    Probably the best Spider-Man game ever done, but still far from perfect. Insomniac has made an excellent sandbox but its repetitiveness and some technical issues make this game a bit less stellar.

    Marvel's Spider-Man is a huge tribute to the superhero. The original story is written around him and has great moments. It's somehow slow at the beginning and the game design is not original, but from the second act it starts to gain strength and at the end has the right climax to make the entire game succeed.

    This game shows tremendous love for all things Spider-Man, and the ending packs a punch he would be proud of. But Insomniac relies too much on its hero to elevate the world built around him, with the result that the game wears thin some time before its powerful conclusion.

His struggle with duality, his relationships, his resilience. Throw in a great combat system that makes Arkham combat obsolete, a great traversal, satisfying boss battles, and massive set pieces, and this game's the best superhero game to date. Expand

    This is definitely the best spider-man game, the best super hero game, one of the best games I have ever played.

    First, the story is one of the most immersive and original aspect of this game, a well thought masterpiece and one of my favorites, way better than all of the spider-man movies out yet.

    Game-play, man, after this game, I realized I've never properly swung across New York properly, with the physics and well crafted animations you really feel like spider-man, you almost feel the wind touching your skin. You feel New York. Peter Parker as a character was awesome. Playing with him usually contains some puzzles but that's no problem, i heard MJ parts was boring but I disagree, I think stealth sessions was a good way to balance the tempo. By the way I loved the Insomniacs take on both of these characters. MJ makes great as a Journalist and personally better than being an actress. This improves her relation with Spidey greatly.

    Combat, aside from amazing traversal, combat is also amazing, an important part is it allows you to make strategic decision, you can take enemies out with multiple ways with those large amount of gadgets and of course your trusted web shooters, hands and legs too... the amount of combinations you can do is limitless, and the combos too. The finishers in the game really makes the fight alot interesting, there is large amount of finisher animations in the game and it is amazing I would say the feeling of hits isn't that great but when you pull these amazing combos and finishers you don't desperately need it, your eyes just lock to the screen. From the last sentence you might think that the combat is easy, it's definitely not the case. Don't think I'm spider-man these punks can't to anything to me. These guys really push you, they don't wait until you beat the other guys then strike, they just fight you with all they got. You may find yourself trying to escape a never ending sequence of gun shooting, rockets and more. And you will deal with it with your abilities and things i listed above.

    Side Activities and Collectibles, there is plenty of them. I can say they are original and creative but one negative thing i'm going to say because they are plenty, if you try to finish all of these before finishing the game, it can drive you away from the story a little.

    A thing I'm a little disappointed about is boss fights, they are fun and all but they all have a pattern and when you know what to do, the rest is doing the same thing again and again until you beat them.

    There are certainly alot left to say but my hands are slowly getting tired =) After all it was definitely worth the hype and overall a great game, an awesome game, an amazing game, a spectacular game, best super hero game yet. I know i may praised the game too much but these are my honest opinions and Im a huge spider-man fan. Always Be Greater.

Despite some minor bugs here and there, repetitive side missions, I sincerely commend Insomniac Games for there take of Spider-Man. The story was excellent although there were slight pacing issues which may be personal preference, but the gameplay. Woah! I love the way Peter Parker was implemented into the story and even Spidey's gadgets! Overall an amazing game and is a must buy for the Spider-Man fans seeking a jaw dropping, TRUE SPIDER-MAN EXPERIENCE!!! Expand

    They showed off much better looking version running on workstations when reveling the game. The game the public gets is highly downgradedThey showed off much better looking version running on workstations when reveling the game. The game the public gets is highly downgraded version. This type of blatant false advertising to mislead consumers is unacceptable.

    The game, simple repetitive combat, simple boring repetitive missions. Same old boring game you have played a million times with super hero franchise skin.
