    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.

    The game not only fulfills what it promised, but it gives us an original story worthy of a Marvel movie.

    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.

    Insomniac has found a way to weave together the human side of Peter Parker with the combat and web-slinging of Spider-Man to create a web of intrigue that any PlayStation 4-owning superhero fan should play.

    Marvel's Spider-Man finally gives players the best opportunity to do whatever a spider can.

    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.

    You can feel the love Insomniac put into this game, and it goes a long way.

Story has short and bold arcs, evolution of the charters and believable connections between them. Voice acting and animations are cutting edge, while open-world activities are bit plain at parts, but still provide a lot of fun and participate in overall storytelling.

    I could speak of the things I loved about this game for hours, while not much about things I didn't. Hence 10/10.

    The city is truly alive, people shout out at you like you expect, some love you, others hate you (thanks JJ!) and the story for this Peter is amazing.

    Combat in my opinion, beats the Dark Knight (sorry Bat fans), it is more fluid and high speed, and you always have to use every advantage in your arsenal to win, because you are always massively out-numbered.

    The story is superb too. First time not having to play the death of Ben or finding out how Parker got his powers, just jumping straight in with an experience Spidey makes this much more fun.

    Main story is rumoured to be 22hrs roughly, depending on difficulty level, but honestly you will never just go from mission to mission, I end up going to towers, to backpacks, to research labs, to minor crimes, and just go swinging about because I can. so the story will definitely last longer than that for me.

    All in all, amazing game, definitely worth owning a PS4 to play, and games like this is why I own other consoles and not just my PC.

    Can Insomniac now do a game for all the Marvel Universe heroes please?

Los controles son fáciles de aprender, la historia es interesante y con una duración que se agradece en éste género y los gráficos están a la altura de ser llamados de última generación.
    A pesar de que sea un juego que copia muchas mecánicas de otros, lo hace de buena manera, haciendo que sea un juego auténtico y fresco. Ha llegado el momento en que no se puede decir más que copia a la saga Batman Arkham, sino que toma su género, que es la perfección de los juegos brawlers.
    Si eres fan del personaje o quieres disfrutar de un gran juego exclusivo en PS4, "Marvel`s Spider-Man" es una de las mejores elecciones.

Amazing truly is the word to describe Spider-man. From an excellent Story that shows that It´s own universe and not just a companion piece to the movie´s or comics. To the stunning graphics, whether your swinging in the open world or watching cutscenes. This game is stunning. Like I said the game´s combat can get repetitive, not because it´s bad but because the game´s pretty much 85% of it. Thankfully because the combat is so fun you don´t notice until the end. And most boss battles just follows the pattern of dodge boss attack, web up the boss, web-zip to the boss, 4 hit combo the boss and rince and repeat. But really that´s all I can fault the game with. The story, graphics, characters, and yes combat (despite what I wrote earlier) are all worth your time and like said before: Amazing Expand
