    Spider-Man is a splendidly tuned action game with a stunning story, great action and gameplay mechanisms that won’t bore you for a moment. You should not miss out on this trip among comic heroes. It's a bomb! [Issue#289]

    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.

    Marvel's Spider-Man does what a lot of good art does, which is examine techniques and concepts that work well, and then blend and refine them to create something unique to itself and possibly greater. I've made this point before: Art and artists have built on and inspired each other since the beginning of time. So yes, I've heard and seen the Spidey/Arkham hot takes, and I ended up not caring at all because at no point did I forget I was playing a Spider-Man experience. I was too busy swinging around in Manhattan, with buildings whipping by as I tailed a police pursuit, thinking about how right it all felt.

    Spider-Man is probably Insomniac’s best game, and the best Spider-Man game to date. A great adventure everyone can enjoy and fans of the superhero will love.

    The Wall Crawler’s open world doesn’t consistently deliver the thrilling moments of its main campaign, but the foundation laid here is undoubtedly a spectacular one.

    In terms of story-telling and direction this might as well be an addition to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe with its high production values. But as soon as you stray away from the main plot, you’ll land in an open world that is mostly beautiful to look at, but where some positive elements meet quite a few that are only average at best. Nonetheless a great superhero romp throughout.

    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.

I've been having so much fun swinging around that I've almost forgotten there is a story. Just traversing New York City, and pulling off different combos while fighting, makes this game a 10/10. I'll get to the story eventually, but for now I'm having a blast just being the wall crawler. everything else will be icing on the cake.

    "78 Negative scores"? = sucks when you buy the wrong console eh?

    another excellent exclusive for the Ps4. the fast-paced action, and great controls makes this a pleasure to play.
    the story is also quite interesting, and you continually want to progress further to see how it all ends. I had a lot of fun with this, and would recommend it to anyone into action games in general. I'm not particularly a huge Marvel-fan, but this game was great from start to finish.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Marvels fans go their way by putting in a top of the year a dul clone of a truly great game of DC comics. Seriously, Spider-man is worse than the Arkham trilogy in almost everything. Dead city, repeated side missions, and disgusting boss battles. Expand
