    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.

    To be fair when I first saw trailer I thought, this will be good looking game with bad controlls, cheese story with dull characters and emptyTo be fair when I first saw trailer I thought, this will be good looking game with bad controlls, cheese story with dull characters and empty map. Two days ago a bought it to fill the waiting for RDR2 and it took about 20 minut for me to realise this weekend I will stay home, finish it on 100% and enjoy every minute of this amazing game. Rich story with memorable characters, main missions are well made with well balanced difficulity, boss fights are best from all superhero games I have played, but still the same concept you can see in batman for example. Sidequests are typical for these games, but Spidey will keep you entertained with his constant, mostly very funny monologs. In some point of 1 Act fast travel will be aviliable, which is for me normally great news, this is one of a few exceptions, because flying over city with simple yet effective controlls is so addictive and fast, that you will use fast travel maybe for trophy. Last thing I actually knew that insomniac will deliver are fun and effective gadgets and armors with usefull upgrades. They sure know how to make battle extremely fun using hands, legs and spiderweb against guys with rifles and rocket launchers. Even batman would make a bad symbol in his trousers, Parker is fast combo machine that sometimes you dont even know how or what you did, but it looks cool AF and it was smooth.

    Must play and in means of pure fun, absolutely best superhero game.
    10/10.... for superhero game
    9/10...to be fair, since it is "just" another superhero concept

Svolazzare con le ragnatele per New York, riprodotta in maniera eccezionale, non è mai stato così bello.
    Probabilmente il miglior gioco di supereroi.

So I tried to cancel my pre-order. It was too late and the game was already too far in the process of shipping. When it arrived I contemplated not opening it and sending it back. I finally gave in later that day and cracked the cellophane and popped the disc in. All I can say is thank god I was not able to cancel. This is an amazing game. I just finally finished the story tonight and all I can say is wow! I felt like I just sat thru a great movie with great characters. The first 20 min are a slow burn, but once it picks up, you are hooked. I definitely did not tire of the action or feel it got too repetitive. In fact I loved it all but the MJ missions. Def 9.5. Great graphics.. excellent graphics, amazing animation and story, excellent balanced action. It’s a must play and I can’t wait till the next one. Kudos to Insomniac. If you haven’t played this, you are truly missing out. I don’t finish many games as I lose interest midway thru but this game had me hooked to the very end. Expand
