The game is still amazing. The writing is still amazing. The performances are still amazing. The visuals are still stunning. The music is still unique and very fitting.
I think the thing I like the most about the overall story is that it focusses so little on the world at large. The issues the characters face are really quite small in the grand view of things. Terrible, yes. But small. But that’s what makes it so hard and sad and uncomfortable. We can become detached about bad things when we don’t experience them personally. But these characters are so real and we grow so attached to them that we do experience the tragedies personally, in a way.
And in order to do that the story HAS to be small and only focus on a few people.
Only a consistently solid company like Naughty Dog could craft such a singularly perfect experience. Even their worst games are some of the best games out there. It’s going to be so exciting to see where they take this world going forward.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.7Sep 30, 2018Fantastic game. A few flaws here and there and one game-interrupting glitch, but performs very, very well aside.

The only reason I don’t give this 10 is that some of the cutscenes are SO FORCEFUL and over-the-top with the emotion they’re hard to watch. There’s cheese and then there’s the last few cutscenes in this game. Cringe-worthy.
But the story, the writing (most of it), the performances, the mechanics, the characters, the pacing, the combat... it’s serisously good. It’s great, even.
It would be my fav Spidey game except that Slott was one of the writers. Can’t allow that, nope.
But you really should give it a try if you’ve been webbed to the ceiling this whole time and managed to miss it.… Expand
