    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 exceeded my expectations in every single way. It has its low points, but they are so minor, they become insignificant in the face of its many positive points. Spider-Man is the PS4's second system seller in 2018.

    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.

    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.

    Was really close to getting platinum in this fun game. Spiderman lived up to the hype for me.

    Pros: - Just a fun game overall - traversal
    Was really close to getting platinum in this fun game. Spiderman lived up to the hype for me.

    Pros:
    - Just a fun game overall - traversal was smooth, fighting was well done, and the mini games solid
    - Not a fashion souls guy, but I loved all the Spiderman suits
    - Enjoyed playing as other characters

    Cons:
    - Maybe a bit too many fighting events
    - The random crime events caused me not to get platinum which is pretty lame
    - Stealth was good, but would of loved to see more of it
